No wifi except in the restaurant. Restaurant closed at 10pm. 10 min drive or 1.5 hour hike to other beaches. If this is what you want, you can have it. It's great. I wish they would turn off the path lights at midnight. It takes away the old island feel. Be sure to find Hide on High bar a bit... More

Great opportunity to meet travellers from all over the world or have time to be alone and enjoy the nature and tranquility which enfolds you. The accommodation is really nice/clean - hammock is great overlooking or on the beach. The food, drinks, etc are well priced. Really tasty fried fish thai style! The staff at Mai Pen Rai Bungalows are... More

Since finding Mai Pen Rai Bungalows i have been back and visited several times. The 'perfect' secluded beach is very quiet, clean and silent. The bungalows either on the beach or up on the rocks are really nice and brilliant for any type of holiday. They can accommodate solo travellers, couples, small or large families. Referring back to the bungalows... More

We were a larger group and booked a lot of bungalows at Mai Pen Rai. We celebrated the birthdays of two people and had a great time. Fiona (the owner of Mai Pen Rai) organized for us a BBQ Buffet at the beach, a fire show and balloons afterwards. It was an awesome evening. Moreover we chartered a boat (Orion... More

I drove all the way to this beach from Haad Yao with my girlfriend. We were very thirsty and ordered 2 mixed fruit lassi. After 20 minutes of waiting patiently I asked the waitress if our order was coming. She was very aloof but said she will go check on it. 10 minutes passed and the order still didn't come.... More

I stayed with my girlfriend around 2 weeks in the Mai Pen Rai bungalows with the intention to stay 1 to 2 months. On the 27.12.15 10pm we got told to move out of the room because of a booking. This was a shock especially because we kept asking the stuff about it regularly. We are very open minded but... More

ThanSadet, General Manager at Mai Pen Rai Bungalows, responded to this review

I am very sorry that you had this experience, but my staff told me that they had informed you of this booking early on in your stay. All our bungalows were fully booked for the New Years period, and any one staying in a room that did not have a booking were informed how long they could stay in that... More

If you are looking for paradise this is the spot. The resort is private and secluded giving you that real tropical island feel. We stayed in a lovely beach bungalow with amazing views of the sea. The room was clean and cool with the nice breeze coming in off the ocean. I loved waking up in the morning and hearing... More

I've been visiting this idyllic place nearly every year since 2002. It has never failed to please and is a perfect sanctuary from the 'rest of the world '. The beach is idyllic, beautiful white sands and very private. Ask for bungalow no. 18, perched up on the rocks and with a wonderful view. Great food and sweet staff. The... More

First order of business is getting to the resort. After being told that it would be 600bht for 2 people the taxi stopped at the top of the mountain and demanded 1200bht. I was pissed. It had been raining quite hard on the island and there was mud everywhere. And once we got to the resort there was lots of... More
