  Happy Lagoon Beach 2 resort
by phil_uk_net

This place is brand new and within a few minutes walk of the main bus stop in Khaolak. There are just 10 bungalows and these are always quite busy. Apparently they will be building more bungalows here soon. The rooms have fans but no A/C and there is just a cold water shower. In the heat of southern Thailand though, this is quite sufficient.
The daily rate is 600 baht.

Unique Qualities: Being brand new (opened November 2002) everything is spotlessly clean. The furniture is brand new and the lockable drawers and doors still have keys even. The staff are friendly and the attached restaurant is very good.

Location is very good - the beach is a few minutes to the left and the main road a few minutes to the right. The surroundings are not great - to the front is empty ground with a few plants but this could give way to new bungalows soon. There is a small rubber plantation on one side but construction is going on at the rear.

What I like so much about this place are the rooms which are ultra clean, light and airy. It really is a comfortable feeling and unlike so many budget places I have stayed at in this price range that make me squirm a little.

Price Comparison: about average
Directions: From the main road it is a few minutes along the road to Nang Thong beach.
Theme: Pension/Guesthouse

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
