Incredible value for money, we've got a great sized private pool, two huge bedrooms with ensuites, lounge, kitchen and laundry about a 5 minute walk to the seafood market and 10 minute walk to gorgeous Laem Ka Beach. It doesn't get cleaned during the stay so you do have to make your own bed (or not - you're on holidays) and have a sweep up every couple of days. We loved being left alone and don't really get into resort amenities so it was perfect. It is a long way from the tourist attractions so prepare to offset the cost of accommodation in transport if you want to do the big tours/stuff (elephants, naka market etc). It is walking distance to heaps of restaurants, chilled out bars and the private charter long boats. We came to Thailand to lounge around and relax, Rawai was perfect. If you're here at breaky time, our favourite spot was Coffee Tribe. Beautiful food and coffee. We'll definitely be back.
