Stayed for 7 nights as part of a trip to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday and had a wonderfully relaxing week.
Advice I would give for people staying here is please, please don't come here expecting it to be the Mandarin Oriental. If you want a gym and business facilities in Bang Niang then book yourself into somewhere like the Ramada and pay up to 4 times the price.
Bruno and Nam (the owners) offer a genuine welcome and value for money in a local (non chain) business that is in a great location. Rooms are clean and well tended to, the only issue would be that the beds are a little hard but after a few days you soon get used to them. The beach is a short walk away and we had some of our best food of the trip in the beach hut restaurants for about 750 Baht for two people including drinks (£14!!!!)
If you ask nicely Nam might even show you her skills at carving fantastically intricate vegetable decorations that she does for the food.
All in all a very enjoyable week which didn't feel like you were staying at a hotel at all. More like and old friends very large house :)
Thanks Bruno and Nam.
