Sandee Bungalow is one of the original bungalow operations on Thong Nai Pan Noi. It is run by a local family who are friendly and speak good English. This used to be a haven for backpackers as there were plenty of cheap wooden bungalows and the food in the restaurant was cheap and delicious.
Sadly things have changed. The restaurant is closed and the bungalows have all been upgraded. The family have adopted less of a hands-on approach, and as a result much of the backpacker trade has moved on. Nevertheless, Sandee Bungalow remains one of the few budget options in Thong Nai Pan Noi and is good for those people just looking for a fan bungalow with toilet / shower and comfortable bed.
Sandee Bungalow is on the corner where the Rasananda road joins the village road. The reception is opposite the bungalows in a small internet shop. This is the best place to rent motorbikes and buy bus, boat and train tickets.
There is no beach view. It takes about 1 minute to walk to the beach down the main road past the new Buri Rasa shopping and cafe area.
The management are happy to give you fresh bed linen and towels if you ask. They can also store your valuables.
The booking engine for Sandee Bungalow is Agoda. The prices quoted above are Agoda's. It is also possible to arrive and get a room. If you are staying a few days you can normally negotiate a small discount, especially if you smile. The minimum stay for an Agoda booking is 5 days. This restriction does not apply if you book independently on arrival.
The fan bungalows have big double beds and a balcony with a hammock. The bungalows are spacious, clean and well maintained. The rooms offer a bit more luxury and are painted green.
Most of the fan bungalows have been upgraded to air-con as have the rooms. Add 1,000 Thai Baht a night for air-con. Makes you realise what a luxury air conditioning is!
