Bandara gets high marks for its location on the nicest stretch of Bophut Beach. The deluxe rooms in the large, multistory complex aren't particularly special, but they all have decks with daybeds. Rooms smell great—aromas are piped in—and fresh flowers sometimes await you. Private villas have gardens complete with outside tubs and showers, and shady daybeds are perfect for massages. Five spa treatment rooms provide a variety of facials, massages, and aqua therapy.
The seaside restaurant serves seafood and Thai dishes. The restaurants, bars, and shops in Fisherman's Village are a short walk away.
