Talkoo Beach Resort - Khanom: Talkoo Beach Resort - Khanom - Nakhon Si Thammarat
Well we had what I can only describe as an interesting experience at Talkoo Beach Resort. The hotel is in 2 sections with cabins, the restaurant and pool on the beach side, then a lot more rooms on the other side of the road.
We stayed in the cabins beach side, on the outside the cabins look like something out of the Flintstones but inside they were quite nice with a lot of unusual woodwork. We paid 1500baht a night for this room with free breakfast and wifi, the rooms closer to the pool and beach were`1700baht but they were all occupied.
So our first night there turned out to be very strange. After we eventually fell asleep due to the noise coming from karaoke singers, I woke up around 2am to terrible noises coming from the woodwork around our window. Gary had a look and our room was being happily eaten by thousands of termites!
So early next morning we asked to change rooms, the only room available was the one right next to the pool which was an extra 200baht, no problems we will take it. Another mistake! The quickest way to the pool was past our cabin and it was the weekend.
Bus Loads of Thai families started arriving, it seemed like hundreds of children running and screaming around our cabin. Not to worry we can cope and at least we could not hear any termites feasting on our room.
Oh no did I mention busloads, well they were all here for a huge Karaoke night at the hotel and to make it worse Sandy’s Beach Bar which is next door were also trying to compete to see who could make the most noise. That’s it; we are out of here tomorrow and will find somewhere else to stay!
The hotel is typical Thai style, no English speaking television, but we bought a DVD player and movies with us, the only drinks in the restaurant are bottles of whisky or beer, but it is no problem to take your own. When we went to breakfast we were told sorry no buffet today, you want coffee or tea. We thought that was all we were going to get but out comes my pint of tea ha-ha, toast, egg,s delicious leg ham etc, so it was a good breakfast.
We also had a nice dinner in the restaurant which was 770baht with our meals, 3 large bottles of Leo and one small bottle.
Having said all that the location is lovely, the staff were very friendly, the food was good but for us it was not the place for a relaxing beach holiday.

Khanom Sunrise Resort: Khanom Sunrise Resort
Khanom Sunrise Resort is a great little hotel on the beachfront of Khanom Beach. We stayed in a Deluxe Beach Front room for 1700baht which included breakfast and free wifi.
The hotel is very Thai style but with a fantastic bathroom and we were made to feel extremely welcome here.
Our room was very comfortable with a little balcony and we just loved this hotel. Meals at their restaurant which is called Lantalea were delicious and very cheap. There was not a good selection of alcohol at the bar as it is more of a place where you bring your own or just buy a bottle of spirits from them.
They did not have Bacardi or Vodka but that was not a problem as the next night I just took my own. Our first night Gary ordered a scotch and coke, so they bought him out a bottle of Benmore, a bucket of ice and 4 bottles of coke, all for 420baht!
Nothing is rushed here, it is so peaceful, and no people, kilometers of white sand and some of the most spectacular sunrises I have ever seen.
We highly recommend this hotel for the location, price, friendly staff and good home cooked meals.
