For those of you that do not know, Cha-am is a small place not too far away from Bangkok that is used for weekend breaks or just for people to go away from the noise of the big city. It is a place to relax basically. Do not expect to find awesome attractions as another beach sites but is affordable, safe and quiet.
Within that framework, if what you are looking for is a place to stay and then go and explore the town by yourself, or in my case to attend an event, this is the ideal place as oppose to stay in an expensive resort. The price -value rate you will find here is really great!
Pae's place is a one room apartment, with a small kitchen and a washroom. Everything works as intended, it is crispy clean and extremely safe. The facilities in the compound include a very nice 50 m long swimming pool, a small but nice and clean Gym and an area just to lay down and relax. However, the most amazing thing about this place is the service, transparency, and honesty of the people that run it; during my stay, they promptly tried to take care of my needs and answered all of my questions! Should I need to stay again in Cha-am for another event, this is a no brainer. Pae's service is great
Recommendations to make your stay even more pleasant:
a.- There is a good and quite fast internet in the lobby, however, the signal would not reach the room. Make sure that you get a 4G for your trip. I used up 2GB in one week. Perhaps a 3GB would be better.
b.- Buy food and hygiene items in advance, especially if you don't have transportation. The kitchen available has only a microwave, an electric pan, and a toaster. You can cook eggs and simple dishes but would not be able to cook elaborated dishes. If you use the electric pan, make sure you handle it with care as it will get very hot.
c.- If you plan to stay out in the swimming pool or in the rest areas, bring mosquito repellent! (no mosquitos in the room for sure)
d.- Outside is quite safe, however, if you rent a bike (I got mine for a bit less than 100 bth per week) be aware that there are quite a LOT of street dogs that will bark and chase you whenever you dare to get into "their territory!" :D hence either you bike fast and/or carry a long stick or something to scare the dogs away. If you come with small kids, is not advisable to bike around with them because of that. You would be better off renting a moped.
