Weangthai Resort is now the Hacienda Resort Beach Club
Weangthai Resort is a long-running resort about 1km. from Thong Sala, conveniently located near a selection of good bars and restaurants. The resort has a selection of accommodation available; the cheapest are old style fan bungalows, while at the other end of the scale are the concrete modern rooms all with air-con hot water, mini-bar and cable TV. At the beachfront there is a small coconut grove with many hammocks for relaxing out of the sun.
One of the reasons for Ao Bang Charu's great popularity is its easy accessibility and proximity the main towns. Ao Bang Charu is located on the south coast of Koh Phangan and is a popular place for folk who want to get away from the hubbub of Haad Rin and Thong Sala, whist still being near everything; whether you fancy a big night out or want to use the services in the islands capital. Its proximity to town and open sandy beach has made it a popular destination in Koh Phangan for over twenty years. It is a peaceful beach with sunset views over Koh Samui; well away from the main road and big enough to really get away from it all.
Weangthai Resort has 10 old style bungalows most of which have been newly refurbished. All the bungalows have private bathrooms, mosquito netting on the windows and large open balconies. There are 21 luxury air conditioned guesthouse rooms all with mini-bar, cable TV and hot water and a choice of two double beds or a double and a single. They have fitted wardrobes, fans, ceramic floor tiles throughout and are also the biggest rooms. There are 2 styles; Standard and Superior, the difference being that the Superior rooms have more exquisite decoration and also tea/coffee making facilities.
