My second favorite beach on the island is Lonely Beach. He, in contrast to White Sendu, on the contrary, is quiet and calm. Well, if we are talking about the beach itself. Since the main dislocation of hotels is about 10 minutes from the beach, it is there that the village is located and it is quite noisy, as there is a lot of young people and music.
But if you live in one of the hotels right on the shore (there are only a few of them), then there will be silence. One of these hotels is Bhumiyama Beach Resort, which is considered by many to be the best on the island. Lived to figure it out.
And what else I like about Lonely, the beach itself is great! Deep sea, good sand, there is a shadow. And it seems to me that there are never a lot of people on it. True, for all the infrastructure you will have to go to White Sand or Klong Prao. Although, depending on what you need, there are cafes and massages on Lonely.

Price and booking
At Bhumiyama Beach Resort, I had Superior Sea View, that is, a room in the building and overlooking the sea. It is slightly more expensive than Superior Garden View (the cheapest), but in principle I would not say that in fact there is a big difference between them. After all, in my room the sea view was not straight front, but through the pool.
Paid 3500 baht / day (breakfast included). In the off-season, the price drops to somewhere around 2500 baht. There are also bungalows, they are also with and without views, but more expensive, since almost separate villas.

Be sure (and I insist) to check for discounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. He will quickly and easily show you discounts in all existing booking systems. In Asia, for example, there are a lot of offers on Agoda.com, which are much more interesting than for exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.
For example, here is a direct link to the hotel: Bhumiyama Beach Resort for hotel booking.
The rating of the hotel is 8.2, 4 stars. In my opinion, everything is true, although a little expensive. Nice hotel, real four, everything is great. But, of course, within the limits of the island, because here you can safely take away one star everywhere from each hotel, since often the room stock is old, and the price does not quite correspond to the quality.
So, my room was large in size and the design immediately caught my eye. I don’t know what else to call it, maybe it’s more correct - finishing. Not just walls painted in a single color, but all sorts of ruffles and decorations. I was personally pleasant and pleasing to the eye. The room is not tired, all the furniture is in order.
Only, perhaps, there were 2 beds, I would like one large, but apparently there were no other rooms left. Separately, I will note the soft mattress, in contrast to previous hotel, he was right what you need.
Of the appliances, there are air condos, a flat-screen TV, instead of a kettle, a thermopot, a hairdryer, a mini-fridge with a minibar for a fee, and a safe in the closet. There are also umbrellas, bathrobes, tea and coffee, napkins, separate towels for the beach or pool, and several free bottles of water. And yes, something like a bible. Well, the most important thing. If you find fault, then the condo is noisy. It seemed to set the blowing speed to a minimum, but it was still loud.
The spacious bathroom had not only a shower, but also a bathtub. They did not stint at all and arranged everything very well. The pebbles in the corner looked pretty cute. Design, I'm talking! Soap accessories in full.
The internet is good too. Everything worked fine. I do not know if this is always the case, but during my stay - no complaints.
The territory of the resort is well-groomed and green, walking along the paths is very pleasant. Some corners are jungle. There is a bridge over the stream and there are all sorts of lianas hanging from above. In general, the territory is small and half of the area is occupied by a large pool, even two (they are next to each other).
I also noticed that there were few people in the hotel, either the season on Chang was already over, or I was just walking around the hotel at the wrong time..
Since the hotel is located on the first line, its swimming pool and restaurant face directly to the sea. You can sunbathe and at the same time alternate, swimming in the pool, then in the sea.
Breakfast takes place overlooking Lonely Beach, you sit 10 meters from the shore on the second floor. Moreover, there are always few people on Lonely, so in the morning it seems that you are generally alone here, a feeling of separation from civilization is created.
Back to breakfast - for 4 stars, quite modest, the choice is small, in Kacha Resort was bigger. Omelet, fruits, vegetables for salad with dressing, toast with butter and honey. Fried vegetables, fish steak, fried potatoes, bacon and sausages. Tea, coffee, juices. Breakfast takes place from 7:30 am to 10:30 am and is included in the room rate.
You also need to be careful at breakfast. An impudent bird (s) lives there. When she arrives and sits right on the table, you are happy, you take pictures, but when you turn away for a second, she is already dragging something out of your plate 🙂 No kidding, she stole the eggs from me.
On the map
Bhumiyama Beach Resort is the hotel on the far left (when looking towards the sea), after which the normal beach ends and stones begin. That is, if you go somewhere along the beach, then to the right. But from it the closest to the village with cafes, literally 5-10 minutes, no more, along an asphalt road.

P.S. There is also Siam Beach Resort nearby, it is a little cheaper, and the location is excellent (it is the first at the entrance to the beach, if you go from White Send), but a little old, judging by the reviews and appearance.
