"Bring me back, please! Peaceful, beautiful, friendly, fun"
The overall friendliness, comfortable bungalows, on-site chef & bar, attentive facility caretakers, and of course the great kitesurfing instructors were beyond perfect.
I grew up (and currently reside) in world-class tourist beach communities in the U.S. and Asia, and this entire package through 17knotskitesurfcenter.com was the perfect getaway for me. The "Land of Smiles" and beaches and wonderful food and fun people – it’s all true as advertised. Indrek Rosenberg was the third kite instructor I’ve hired, and he is by far the best: very safety conscious, knowledgeable, skilled, smart, genuine, and very entertaining. Wesley’s hospitality as tour coordinator and instructor is second to none I’ve experienced in traveling all of Asia. He’s dedicated, personable, deeply knows the area, and is fun. He anticipated all my needs: access to the best kitesurf spots, the best city sites, food, and overall he made every bit of my visit very easy. I just want to go back!!!

"Great week at a lovely spot!"
First of all we have to say that it was one of the best places we have experienced on our 5 month journey around the world and the best in Thailand for sure! The accommodation is as described, cozy little houses who have everything you can wish for. The little fridge we had, had enough space for one or two beers and some Snickers - which were perfect in the evenings after the Beachbar was closed. They put a lot of heart and sweat in the beach restaurant and the food is just amazing on very affordable prices!!! The beach is very private and the sunrise in the morning is worth to wake up early☺ The owners of the rooms are helpful with everything, so don’t hesitate to ask them!
What we loved also were the little puppies who were around us all the time. the dogs from the accommodations are very friendly just be aware of some dogs who live beside the houses, at night they don’t like people crossing the beach that much.
With a motorbike everything is in perfect reach. You can find good restaurants, bars, night markets and much more.
We have to say, that we had a little experience with kitsurfing, although there was much more to learn for us and that’s what we definitely did! We have to give a big thank you to Indrek. He did an amazing job! He was patient when we kept on doing the same mistakes over and over again. He came with us to the cable kite, where there was no wind on the beach to kitesurf and he let us try and experience different kites and boards. It was great to
