a memorable place to stay. Expect a friendly staff, artistic bungalows with a stunning sea view , a nice veranda with a hammock, designed in traditional island style situated in a beautiful tropical beach. A nice place to stay after the full moon party :)

It's always hard to pick that special place on the beach when you're reading reviews from thousands of miles away. I liked what they offered via their website with quiet times as we were not of the full moon crowd. This place is indeed very laid back, if you want something just ask for it or find someone.

We booked a bungalow here for 3 days in advance. Although overall the place is cute, we really had to try our best to get a "hello" or "welcome" from the bored looking staff (Except for Sen, a man a few words who actually gets things done). The second day, the staff decided to close not only their restaurant/bar for... More

We just return from a wonderful 12 days trip to South-West Tailand, after 3 days in the deep jungle, we arrived at the Shambhala where we had booked a "family sea-view" room in what we thought would be a very cute & Lovely Bungalow village. Instead we were given a plain "budget hotel" room, with main road on one side... More

The location is perfect to relax and do nothing, it was a busy time when we were there but this beach felt isolated and untouched. The staff treat you like family and are very inviting. They made us feel comfortable right away. I couldn't recommend this place enough if you are looking for somewhere to relax and away from all... More

What an amazing place to stay! We came for the Full Moon Party (minimum 5 night stay), and stayed in a beachfront bungalow. This place was such a paradise to come back to after nights of partying in Haad Rin and at the Full Moon Party. It is secluded away from everything else so it is very peaceful and quiet.... More
