Nang Thong Bay (1) vs Nang Thong Beach (2)

I was wondering if anyone has a more recent comparison of Nang Thong Bay Resort 1 vs Nang Thong Beach Resort 2. Is one more updated/cleaner/friendlier staff/nicer beach/ less crowded? Any recommendations on bungalow vs room in the building? I saw there are a few older posts on here, but nothing that is recent. Thank you much.

I have only stayed at Nang Thong Bay (1), I chose this over the other as it is closer to walk up to supermarket, restaurants, etc. I chose apartment, 3rd floor and will do again. I feel better lighting for walking back at night however my friends chose a garden apartment (did have sea view) and they were really happy with it. Cheers.

We have stayed at NTBR1 5 times now in 3 years, 3 times in a beach front, once on the 2nd row and once on the ground floor of the building. It is always going to be beach front for us, and if not available one on the 2nds row with a sea view. The building room was fine, large comfy with a large bath, but the beach front just has the atmosphere.

There are several forum posts comparing the two if you search for them. I seem to remember that there were only minor differences. Nang Thong 1 has outdoor showers, one had a bigger pool, a nicer beach (can't remember which) and so on. Do not remember one being 'updated/cleaner/friendlier' though I think Nang Thong 2 is newer. Most reviews recommended the bungalows over the building rooms and Nang Thong 1 had family rooms. I think you would be happy with either though seem to remember someone saying at some stage that number 1 was closing for a refurbishment during the coming green season, I don't know if this is true.
