We met some friends, who are regulars at the Rung Arun, for the final week of our holiday. We received a warm welcome from the owners and dogs alike and were shown to our room which was just a couple of steps from the sand; literally beach front. We wanted a relaxing week to end our holiday and this place was the perfect choice for this. The food is good, reasonably priced authentic cooking, and there are a selection of drinks available including all sorts of fresh fruit juices made to order. I can recommend the massage lady too, great Thai massage sorted my back out for the equivalent of about £5 for an hour, all right on huge beach. There is a small pool which we used a couple of times, this was always clean. The hotel will organise trips and car/bike hire if required- but we just wanted a "do nothing week" with friends and we got just that. The owners have a laid back and friendly attitude, and this is reflected at their resort. If you are looking for 5 star rooms and service, would take exception to sharing the beach with one or more of the hotel dogs, or dont want a cat saying "good morning" while you eat breakfast, then this is not the place for you. If you want a room on the beach with great views, good food, friendly staff and a real taste of Thai hospitality then don't hesitate to book the Rung Arun. We'll be back for sure.
