I stayed at payung for 2 nights and the experience was very good. Yaya who runs the place is very helpful, helped me with bus tickets to kl. You can book any bus tickets with Yaya and he will also drop you to the bus station . The chalet's are comfortable and clean.

Expect a simple, functional & quite cooling chalet. What you see is what you get. There are no air-con rooms, despite what their website says; but it is quite cooling at night, so all is well. We enjoyed our stay and had a lot of fun chilling by the front porch. It's also walking distance to the beach. Small tip:... More

We made a last minute trip to Cherating and found this guesthouse really close to the beach. With the river behind, a nice place for a short stay. The guy who owns the place is very friendly and helps book the fire fly trip (apparently a great experience) but we could not go because of bad weather.

We stayed with Yahya(owner) at Payung guesthouse for two nights. He made us feel very welcome from the very start. He brought us extra bed linen when the temperature cooled after a rainy evening. He was very helpful and gave us advise on where to eat, activities etc. The chalets are basic but very cute. We had fresh mangos when... More

The guesthouse is quiete cheap (but there are some even cheaper ones) but therefore the chalets are quite basic but nice. I went there because of the fantastic feedback on tripadvisor and it met my expectations but it was not that brilliant as it as rated back in march 13 (but still good). Its close to the beach and to... More

I stayed here for 2 nights only but could have stayed much longer. Unless you are looking for upmarket accommodation, this place has all you need for an uncomplicated stay. And the guys running it will bend over backwards to help you with just about anything - well done guys!

Travelling as a budget traveller you could stay propably cheaper in Cherating but at Payung guest house you get in our opinion a great package. Good accomodation for a fair price, very friendly and helpful people and great service. We booked the night bus to Melaka and surprisingly the guy from the travel agency (Yahja) gave us a lift to...

After reading the great reviews, we stayed 3 nights at Payung Guest House and could have easily stayed longer. We were warmly welcomed by Yahya who was a great source of information. We booked the firefly cruise and turtle watching with him and had a wonderful time. The chalets are a little run down but they maintain a rustic charm... More
