The White Elephant Resort is owned by the nearby sports bar of the same name. The resort is a few minutes walk from the beach but for this also means that the rooms are better value for money than many which are closer to the sand.
The Standard and Superior bungalows all have king size beds, ensuite bathroom and air-conditioning. As well as room numbers, the bungalows also have names. These are of characters from old English TV series. ( So you could end up staying in ‘Del Boy’, for example. ) Rooms also have the local cable TV which has 80+ channels although very few are in English. The Superior rooms also feature a small kitchen area.
The centerpiece of the resort is the salt water swimming pool. This has plenty of sunloungers and seating, plus a bar area – making it an ideal place to sunbathe and also socialise in the evening. Guests also receive a 20% discount card for the White Elephant Sports Bar. Although there are plenty of other options for both Thai and western food in the area.
The main downside is that guests mention the resort needs some refurbishment. But overall, for around 1,000 Baht / night an up it’s value for money for anyone looking for an inexpensive base on White Sand beach.
