Celebrate the Thai New Year (Songkran) in style. This is an amazing time that should be experienced by everyone at least once. Not only is there the nation wide water fight, but the temples and ceremonies that go along with this are spectacular.Depending on what part of the country you are in, there water fight can last up to three days.

I don't know if budget is the way to describe this place. It has very reasonable prices with the feel of a 5 star resort.The staff do more than their duty making sure everything is in place and comfortable for you.

Both are a very good deal.The hotel sits on the beach, so you only have to open your door and jump in.

This area is very family friendly....Read More
