Chivaree is a small resort designed in the rustic style, consisting of a handful of wooden chalets with an outdoor bath and toilet area. It is one of the more expensive resorts along this stretch of the beach- and perhaps a bit overpriced for what it offers.
The chalets have quite basic fixtures; old-style CRT TVs with mostly local channels, a small bar fridge with a couple of bottles of water, and a kettle with instant coffee and tea. There is a nice but fairly small pool and a restaurant serving mainly Thai food. Luckily there is better and cheaper local food at the beachside restaurants walking-distance away including one right next door called DuGong.
One major hassle was that the resort was infested with mosquitoes while I was there, including in the bathroom area, at the restaurant and even a few in the room. The staff will spray the room with insecticide if you ask, but you have to live with the smell and fumes.
Overall the resort either needs to significantly improve the quality of the rooms and facilities in order to justify the prices being charged.
