We stayed in a chalet in Vikri resort, the room was simple and decent for the price we paid - hot shower, air con, towels, and a private little patio for us to sit and enjoy the breeze. Wifi is available in the reception area. There are cats, chicken and a puppy on the compound so it was fun for us to play with them. They also serve food upon request. There are no fridges in the room, but you can request to use the common fridge. The folks are friendly and chatty. We also managed to rent scooters and book a boat tour through them.
Vikri is located on a quiet stretch of road a little off Sandy Beach. From the jetty, you can get a taxi (one of the pink minibuses) to the resort. From there, it is about 15 mins' walk to Sandy Beach, where the Chinese seafood restaurants are.
Best thing about Vikri is the quiet beach right at its doorstep. Other reviews said that Nipah Beach to the north is the best beach, but we were disappointed as it was rather dirty. The beach right outside Vikri is clean and clear, and there is no one else, almost like a private beach!More
