Smack in the heart of the action, family-run Palita is notable for its welcoming service. Spacious concrete bungalows look a bit ramshackle from the outside but the wooden accents and modern design elements make the interiors very comfy. It's on a beachy wedge of sand and the restaurant serves good Thai food. Non-guests can use the pool for 200B.
Rooms at Lodge Palita are spacious and come with hardwood furnishings. Each room is equipped with a satellite TV, minibar and hair dryer. The en-suite bathrooms come with hot shower facilities.
Relaxation options at the hotel include taking a dip in the pool or playing a game of beach ball. The hotel can make arrangements for diving, snorkeling and island boat trips. Currency exchange services are also available.
Guests can have their meals at the Terrace beachside restaurant, which serves a variety of Western and Thai dishes.
Palita Lodge is 8 km from Thongsala Ferry Pier.
