Reviewed 22 May 2009

We spent two weekend nights at Sang Thian Beach Resort, which is run by a super-friendly Thai family and occupies a small patch of quiet, relatively secluded Ao Thian Beach. Popular with vacationing Thais, I'd wholeheartedly recommend Sang Thian to those on somewhat of a budget and who are eager to escape the more-touristy northern beaches of Koh Samet.

Our room was air-conditioned with a small refrigerator and color TV. The bed was comfortable enough, and the teak woodwork was done in traditional Thai style; quite lovely indeed. The bathroom is actually outside of the room--it's covered and private, but open to the elements of the jungle (read: bugs and wildlife), which made for an exhilarating shower at night! Actually pretty neat.

The grounds are gorgeous, with hammocks set up on the beach and around the two main lodging buildings. The views out onto the water from outside our room on the long balcony were magnificent and, as I said, the staff is super friendly.

To see the rest of the island and to beach hop, I recommend renting motorbikes from Sea Horse on Vong Duran Beach (they have helmets, which you should wear...). For great food, friendly service, and mini-mart supplies, walk down to Horizons, which is just a few guesthouses down from Sang Thian. Baywatch Bar on Vong Duran is recommended for dinner (especially fish & seafood) and drinks as well.

Only drawbacks to Sang Thian is lack of daily cleaning service (they'd probably do it if you asked) and a bit noisy at night when neighbors kept their water heater running all night for whatever reason. Come during the week and you'll have the place and beach to yourself. Our rate for a weekend night was 2,000 Baht, and for Sunday 1,600 Baht.

Not a fancy resort by any means, but perfect for a few night's stay.
