Rin Beach Resort
From 900 THB
Rin Beach Resort is located near the pier on Haad Rin Nai Beach. It has 52 rooms and is one of the bigger bungalow resorts in Haad Rin. The resort has a pool, bar and restaurant but the most striking thing about the resort is the boat house style accommodation. For those who like something different this might be the stand out option.

♦ Guest House Room Economy
The Guest House Room Economy is in a separate building just outside the main resort area. It is a block of rooms in the town. The rooms are basic but clean. They come with air-con and hot water. You can pay a bit more money and get cable TV and a mini bar. The rooms have balconies overlooking the road. Guests have access to the pool and other facilities in the resort grounds.
♦ Superior Garden View Bungalows
The Superior Garden View Bungalows are concrete and have air-con, hot water, cable TV, mini bar and safety box. The garden is shady and peaceful and, unlike, the Guest House rooms, not near the main road.
♦ Boat Houses
The stand-out accommodation option is the row of boat houses. They are surprisingly spacious and have an upper and lower deck. Inside there is a bedroom, chill out area and small Jacuzzi. The interior design features wooden panelling that adds to the nautical charm. The boats sit in a shallow pool. The upper deck is an outdoor space that can be used for sunbathing.
♦ Deluxe Garden View Bungalows
The Deluxe Garden View Bungalows are also large and finished to a high standard. They come with divan and sofa. The sea view bungalows are perched on stilts over the rocks at the end of Haad Rin Nai Beach. There is no beach in front of these bungalows and so the price rise is purely for the view not for quick access to white sands. Indeed Haad Rin Nai (Sunset beach) is not very good for swimming. It does, however, have great sunsets.

♦ Review of Rin Beach Resort
Reviews are very mixed for Rin Beach Resort. While people like the resort pool and the boat houses, many complain about the poor state of the cheaper rooms and things like air-con not working. The biggest gripe, however, appears to be the rudeness of some of the staff, in particular the manager at the reception. It seems they need to improve their customer service. Anyway read for yourself below.
Looking at what I wrote in 2015, I can’t see much has changed – there are twice as many ‘terrible’ ratings on Trip Advisor as there are ‘excellent’ ratings.
