We happen to come across this gem by chance. Whist driving from Hua Hin to Phuket we stopped at a village on the main highway named Khuk-Khak which is in the Kao Lak National Park. After purchasing a beer at the local 7 we decided to take a drive down a side road to the beach. Bang niang beach was the name of this piece of paradise and we were so impressed with the beauty of its surrounds we decided to stay a couple of nights if we could find suitable accommodation. Driving a little further along the beachfront road we came across a large two storey building whch turned out to be ThupThong Guest House and Bungalows. We drove in and were approached by a very friendly Thai lady who offered to show us a room.
We viewed a large downstairs room which was 800 baht per night. The room had a double bed , fan , fridge , wardrobe and a combined bathroom/toilet. Everything was clean and tidy and obviously aimed at the budget tourist so we decided to take it.
That night we wandered along the beachfront and found several restaurants serving meals and drinks on the beach so we stopped at one and ended up there for the rest of the night...a real treat in paradise.
Breakfast next morning was served in a small outdoor type restaurant and consisted of a menu type selection. My wife and I had muesli and fresh fruit which was wonderful , the coffee was served in the biggest mug I have ever seen and was first class.
While we were staying there the owner showed us their new block of accommodation which consisted of 2 brand new villas fully air cond , flatscreen tv etc etc etc all facing the beach , they were absolutely first class @ 2000 baht per night including breakfast.
All and all a wonderful find on the doorstep of such a beautiful beach. We shall return to this stunning location next year.
