Stayed here in the extreame low season on Phayam (weather was great) me and my girlfriend were having a fine time trying to find places open to eat in the eve. Somebody suggested that Mr Gaos stays open all year so we dropped by and moved in for a week. The Beach is great and we paid around 500 bht... More

Ever wondered why some places are empty and others full well Mr Gao on Ko Payam is an example of what to do in getting it right. So many other resorts after a few days treat you as if you were not there , not Mr Gao. We stayed for 12 nights in this resort and loved every minute of... More

Excellent place to stay and for 800 bahts night it makes for an affordable holiday. The beach is very sandy and close to the bungalows and there is a kayak for hire for the adventurous. You see the odd other soul so it's not completely isolated. It is very easy to escape from the stresses of the world at Mr... More

Once again, Lonely planet did not steer me wrong. It should of been the top pick, I checked out the other places on both beaches, and this was the best if you are looking for private, quaint and unique with a stretch of a beautiful beach almost to yourself. The unique character of Mr. Goa was the bungalows which are... More

Well, not quite as private but since there were only two other tourists seemingly on the entire island it felt like a private beach. The bungalow was very nice overlooking the beach but it still is a long way from full day electricity. Then again Ko Phayam is still a long way from mass tourism and we sincerely hope it... More

The approach to the place is down a very picturesque little lane and when you arrive, it is so pretty it immediately fills you with a sense of well being and makes you want to stay, which we did for 3 days and boy were we lucky to. The bungalow was spotless with a great bathroom and verandah that was... More
