Book Direct to get the cheapest hotel prices on Thai beaches
Cutting out the middlemen saves money for hotels, so some then give the best discount to those who book directly.
We thus show a list of hotels that GUARANTEE, in writing, to give this discount for direct bookings. See hotels on the Thailand page, then contact them using the e-mail box on each hotel page. We take no commission.
We also offer DISCOUNT ROOM VOUCHERS – the lowest prices available in Thailand – but these are limited and have conditions. See Top Deals on the Thailand pages or click here to see all Thailand deals. Or e-mail Jade for help;

Bang Saray lies just far enough south of Pattaya to be a different world

Bang Saray might share a coast with its famous neighbour Pattaya, but it shares nothing else in common. Bang Saray is a distinctively Thai community, and while quite a lot of tourists come here to eat in the big seaside restaurants, they are nearly all Thai. There are just three beachfront resorts to the north of the village, and most of the guests in those are also Thais, for Bang Saray is a weekend and holiday escape for people in Bangkok.
The beach along this entire coast is very ordinary; rather narrow with not-so-clear water. But of course it will be cleaner here than further north at Pattaya. The resorts here are certainly relaxing, and you have to drive to find restaurants and shopping. The only entertainment is that in Pattaya, some twenty kilometres away.
The southern-most of the three beachfront resorts here, Sea Sand Sun Resort, is two kilometres north of Bang Saray village and its many restaurants, a 30-minute walk along the beach for those who are reasonably healthy.
Sunset Park Resort is particularly attractive, being built into the natural forest with some original water ways also left intact.
