The Cha-Am Methavalai Hotel
The Methavalai is just after soi 9 when coming from the Narathip Road junction. There is a large swimming pool, and it is a pleasant hotel overall. They also have villas for rent, but we would recommend a superior room instead (better to be in a room and have a view on the villas, rather than be in a villa and have a view on the rooms!). Let’s also mention a popular restaurant, and a second swimming pool running at the back of the hotel. The location is convenient, close to the beach and close to many shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel has its own beach chairs, so you don’t have to rent them.
