If you have been following my ramblings over a number of my reviews, you may have noticed that I have been travelling outside of Bangkok eager, as I am, to discover a little more of this wonderful and enchanting country every time I happen to be over here. On the south west coast, I have ventured to Cha-am, then Hua Hin, then Prachuap Khirikhani Town and this time I decided to go further south then last time, Bankrut to be precise.

Perhaps I should first warn that this location is a five hour train ride from Bangkok. However, it is a comfortable journey and you could divide your travel into two segments and visit Hua Hin en route as it is only one and half hour away from this final destination.

Bankrut is a quiet spot, its first seven eleven was opened only recently and a second ATM was added earlier this year in addition to the one at the railway station. There are a couple of bars and restaurants and they will remain open as long as they have customers in them. As to the night life, they have the former but not much of the latter.

So, why would one want to come here? That is a good point and it depends on your personal views and requirements. Therefore, let me tell you why Mrs Smith and I came here. We wanted to experience the joy of a long and quiet beach and the feeling of peacefulness with nature and the sea. We wanted to lodge in a traditionally built, yet comfortable, bungalow, in a resort where pine trees line the beach and palm groves abound all around. We wanted to enjoy the privacy of a good size pool while surrounded by a natural and tranquil environment. We wanted to sample delicious and tasty food while breathing the sea air at a beach side restaurant. We wanted to bathe in a clean and warm sea and have fun cycling around and even playing a little volleyball from time to time. We wanted to fall asleep on a hammock while caressed by the sea breeze. All this we found at this resort.

Run efficiently by Khun An, Bay view beach resort is located along a beautiful long beach in Bankrut and it offers 35 rooms in 20 bungalows set in tropical greenery by the sea. All the rooms have convenient facilities including satellite TV, refrigerator and electric shower.
This is low season (July) in Bankrut and you can experience a few showers from time to time but that will not spoil your enjoyment of the place and provided you have an interest in temples, you may wish to arrange for a car to drive you the two Kms or so to Thongchai mountain and wonder at the lovely 9 chedi temple, Wat Tong Sai. The views from there are superb.

The place could be perfect if it was clean! It is not that expensive to stay at. But they don't clean at all! The beach is dirty with plastic and bottles around. Mostly Thai people are there. It needs a great deal of maintenance! The furniture is old and dirty. The permanent smell of the canalisation in the rooms. The airconditioning is loud and don't help with that bad smell. The food in the restaurant is monotonous and mostly Thai . There is a pool, what compensates more or less the lack of a clean beach.
We stayed with a child for one night and had to cancel the resting 3 days. The manager though was very helpfull and competent.

If it is your aim to be alone at the beach, if you want to avoid the mass tourism and if you want to discover the real Thailand, then this is a place to discover. Quit and beautifull. Few foreigners visit Ban Krut but the place is popular among Thai people during the weekends. Most restaurants serve simple but very tasty home cuisine.

Room tip: 0044 is a stand alone bungalow. Ideal for a couple. Seaside bungalows have a little less privacy

We only wanted to Go-through and stayed for a few days. Not only because of maybe the most beautiful temple around the corner, but because of a very nice place to stay.

A "must-go" if you travel with kids. We have 2 (4 and 1 year old). The owners (who live partly in Denmark, partly in Thailand) have Children too. So there is everything for children. And I mean everything (walking-bikes, bikes with supporting wheels, small bikes, big bikes, hula-hups, little buldozers for the sand and bucekts, shovels... )
There is a small playground (with european safetystandard!) and of course lots of sand.

The beach is part of the property and only 1,5 m away from the spotless pool. The later has a shallow part (for the children) and a deeper end (for swimming)

the Bugalows are okay. Nothing special.
But the service is extremly friendly. The staff care about the children as if it were their own. The first time we had tears from our daughter when we left (and we left a lot of places on our trip)

Although this part of Thailand is more for the Thais, there is a few things to do. Especialy the Temple which is beautifully set at the end of the beach.
Paddle there with one of the Kajas they have for free (Sit 3 Adults!)

On Friday night the Temple is lit. A must see

The Beach is clean, but as for almost everywhere in Thailand not white sand, but yellow (normal) Sand.

If you are a couple and want peace and quit, this is where you find it. Not on weekends though. This is when richer Bangkok-Thais move in. Their party (and this goes for all parties) must stop at 00h00. No worries, you will definately be invited if you want to.

Thailand is very child-friendly, but this was the most friendly place we had so far (we still have 2 months to go)

Must-Go if you have children, but do not stay much longer then 3-4 days, because besides the temple, the pool and the beach, there is not much more going on.
From here we travelled on to Cha Am (approx 150 km north) where we stayed at the Eurasia Lagoon Resort.
