Very nice and clean bungalows on beautiful and wonderful Koh Phayam. Nothing to complain about, right on the beach and a nice pool with a restaurant. Dont forget to visit Kwang Peeb Beach on the northern tip of the island.

Payam Cottage is suitable if you are looking for a place right on the nicest beach of Payam island. Buffalo bay has a white sandy beach and the water is clear but you cannot swim when the tide is low in the morning. There's the pool near the restaurant and the food was great as well. We did not have... More

30 bungalows or so, mostly empty during the week we stayed there. fantastic location, during the high tide, it feels like beeing in the Maldives. and during the low tide, the cosy swimming pool is a nice option we did not eat there except for a few occasions in the morning, and the breakfast is something they really have to...

Payam Cottage Resort was an ambitious place that seems to have been either sold by the original owner or the original owner ran out of energy (or money) for the place. Maybe they overbuilt for the island, with about 30 or 35 cottages. Our first impression was good, but then you saw the details later... The cottage design and finishing... More

The beach, pool and restaurant were very nice. We liked the clean beach where you could walk for miles. The way to the island is not for us old folks, but we got there and then my wife didn't want to ride the motor cylces. But somehow we did it with all our suitcases. We had a guest in the... More

Concerning the beach and the resort itselft, there is not much more to ask for on the islands. It is really good. Not too far from the pier and the access to the resort is via concrete road. Anyhow we have never experience staff alternatively owners being that much customer unfriendly and careless like at the Payam Cottage Resort. I... More

We stayed in this resort in December 2012 and enjoyed it very much. This is a very peaceful place. The beach is nearly empty and the next resort is far away. To go to any other place, beach or restaurant a motorcycle is needed or a long walk. The bungalows are nice and easy. Everything is clean and there is... More

Good location, not too far from the pier (4 kms by a motor-taxi at 50 baht per trip). And the place it located right at the end of Buffalo Bay, so all the privacy you can enjoy. The food is the only pain here. Not many varieties and over-priced. And if only the owners would smile more and be more... More

This resort has a nice looking pool and fronts a very nice beach. The management is friendly and keen to help. The food is okay and the rooms are fine. We paid 1,600 THB for a Superior Room including breakfast (we booked two to accommodate our children) and were very happy with our choice of hotel. The negatives are all... More
