I stayed in their 500 baht bungalow, which was a newish building, if you want the best it will cost 1,200 b. What I liked about hornbill huts was the quiet location, at night you only hear the waves, also their restaurant served good food at a reasonable price. They also have WiFi and electricity throughout the night.

My Fiance and I stayed here for 6 days in mid December after combing the beach and not being able to find anything else. Holiday season here is fully booked and accommodations of any length are hard to come by. The staff were very helpful and friendly but the the best reason to visit is the food. This kitchen produces... More

Hornbill Hut is one of the older resorts on Koh Phayam and the bungalows reflect it’s age, this is not a criticism our room was very pleasant, clean and spacious, set among many trees which gave good shade during the day and kept the room cool. There is a lovely platform by the beach where you can watch the sunset... More

Me and my partner stayed here for 1 week and had a bamboo bungalow for 300 baht. Ko Phayam the island is absolutely beautiful, it is extremely relaxed and load back and very quiet.

My husband and I had such a good time at Hornbill Hut last month. We stayed in a hut a bit further back for one night then moved to a beachfront hut the next day. We spent 8 days in total doing far too little. Days were spent swinging in the hammock - every hut has one - walking on... More

But spotless clean and long and wide...and the best sunsets day by day. Awesome place and she is the most... More

After a bad experience with another place on the same beach (see my other review) we looked for somewhere nice, and visited every place on Ao Yai Beach. The second we walked into Hornbill Hut we knew we found what we were looking for: we were greeted with a huge smile by the guy that runs the place. He showed... More
