Best Beach Resort In Sichon

49 posts in this topic

I'd like to spend a couple of nights in Sichon sometime in early July and I'd like to know what is the best beach resort in Sichon. I would prefer not to spend any more than about $100/night though. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Yeoser's Beach Resort - up to 1,800B, best of the bunch, just outside Sichon. New website went live today - a Google search will show it at 7th place.

Piti Resort - about that price range. Some of the bungalows look nice, but others need a makeover.

Krua Poy - 1,000B to 1,500B, smallish, quite quite, nice resort.

Prasaansuk - up to 1,500B, nice, some good beach views

Chomley Beach Resort - a bit further out than Yeoser's, a little cheaper, a little older. Quiet.

I've got some reviews and pictures on my website - see my profile for a link.

Rabiang Sai Resort up in Khanom Beach area is a lovely little resort. Prices range from 600 to 1400Baht a night. There is lots of resorts up in this area with really quiet beaches, well worth a look.

I tried attaching a few photos but my upload speed here is really slow.

I wouldn't go in sea there though, unless you like swimming in sewage ..... terrible it is. :)

"wouldn't go in the sea there"....???? Well...I live in Sichon, and I swim here almost every day....."sewage"....NO WAY! My 2 year old son and his friends also swim here regularly together with both Thai and farang tourists..... this is a nice place indeed! But yes, we have some prawn and fish farms in the area, but I find the beaches and the water very nice! Actually the beaches are rated better than the ones in both Koh Samui and Phuket! Sichon beaches are rated 4.5 Stars compared to only 4 Stars in Phuket and Koh Samui!!!

If you want to stay at the best beach, go for Thong Ching Bay, here you will find Baan Thong Ching Resort. Google them, they are no 1 at the list. The photos on their website does not however show the real beauty of the beach and the surroundings....this is one of the most beautiful places and resorts in Thailand in my humble opinion....the beach and the nature looks very much like Phi Phi Island..... Give it a try....you're welcome to PM me for further info.

Here I have attached a photo of the beach.

Well, what is the name of those 'brown fish' floating by the, Platurd? You can even see the Platurd discolouring the water from the air. Terrible, smelly and wholly unhygenic. I'm talking Hat Piti here and this was last weekend. Sure, Khanom, Khoa Plai Dam and others are maybe cleaner but Hat Piti is disgusting with all the effluent from Sichon floating past. Give me the beaches on the west coast or the islands anyday.

:):D:D (couldn't find the 'vomit' smiley)

$100 so I assume u are looking for something special

I usually stay in 400bath a nite type accommodation but here's my advice

I travel to Sichon every 4 months or so (I have been living in BKK for 3years)

The best placed accommodation is Prasaansuk and I stayed there for THB1,000 (just ask for a discount 2 people) -- Some of the older rooms need a bit of t.l.c and the staff are not 'well' trained -- However, the views are good, the balcony is nice to sit out at night time

I prefer Hing Ngam, the cost is 300bath (1 person), 400 (2 people) --- The beach is rocky, but the views are more interesting and u often see dolphins close to shore. The Manager 'Sue' is a 'treasure'. She has a genuine, honest interest in farang and does her best to make u feel at home. She doesn't chase every bath. Last time she helped a farang organise a full day fishing trip and she made a genuine effort to get the best price for the farang.

Piti Resort -- Feels deserted

Water quality --- I am not a water person, but i did swim a little and never considered the water suspect

I thank everyone for their responses. I'm back from Thailand now and unfortunately wasn't able to go to Sichon or Tha Sala this year. We ended up going to Krabi and Koh Phi Phi because my sister in law works as a travel agent there and got us discounts on boats and hotels. Besides, my wife really wanted to see her sister.

I'll keep all this information in mind for the next time I return.

OK, I am going to bump this thread as I will be working in the area for a month or so, starting mid- September '09.

So what's the latest on nice, clean, family accomodations on the coast? I will probably have my wife and infant son spend some time with me so if there's any notable kid-friendly places, that would be a bonus.

Sichon is dead-centre of my work area and I will be toddling back and forth between NST and Surat with the odd trip to Samui.

Looking at some of the websites, not many have stated internet access beyond (I think is one location) an internet connected computer in the lobby, probably at wallet-raping rates! I can of course use roaming GPRS/GSM and I assume that the local cellular phone networks are pretty robust in the area.

Thanks for your assistance!

Try this place in Hat Nai Plao, have stayed there 5-6 times now, last time I intended to stay at sichon and all the hotels wanted top money for empty resorts. All looking fairly tired as well. This place with bedroom, large lounge and cooking facilities. Ask about long term rental as know they have discount.

^ Thanks for that tip! I have contacted them and they are on my list. I will probably stay at 2 or 3 places during my tour of duty.

I'm interested to hear more about the sewage in the water in that region.

Is it a real problem? Is it only at certain beaches? Surely the whole stretch from Khanom down to Sichon cannot be polluted?
