Sarikantang Resort and Spa
♦ Overview of Sarikantang Resort and Spa
From 1,500 THB
The website for Sarikantang Resort and Spa describes the resort as “home away from home”. It is a relaxed and friendly resort with excellent accommodation and facilities on a beautiful beach just 10 minute’s walk from the action on Sunrise Beach. Prices start at 1,500 Thai Baht for a standard bungalow. This is a popular place for party goers so book in advance if you plan on doing the FMP.
This is a winning combination of great resort and great beach. Sarikantang (also called Leela) Beach is the best on the Haad Rin Peninsula. The perfect white sand gently slopes down to an emerald sea. The beach is lined with small trees. The beach is shared by only a couple of resorts so it doesn’t get too busy. The sea is good for swimming, and the beach doesn’t get covered in the detritus of parties (Sunrise Beach gets trashed but is promptly tidied up).

♦ Review of Sarikantang Resort and Spa
Sarikantang Resort and Spa has both cheaper bungalows as well as luxury Jacuzzi beachfront villas. The resort has a good reputation and a good range of facilities. It is next to a great beach away from the noise of Haad Rin and its parties. This is the first choice location for many veteran Haad Rin visitors.
For many being able to be close to the Full Moon Party but to be able to walk back to their room and not hear the noise of the sound systems on Sunrise Beach is a strong selling point for this resort.
