The day before we were due to check in we received an email from the manager notifying us of some sudden construction work which was resulting in 'some noise and dust' and... More

We were drawn in by the cool arty vibe in the downstairs restaurant/bar and noticed it was also a guesthouse. The rooms are super clean and safe, ours had cable tv and a DVD player. It is situated 30 secs from Chaweng beach walk leading to the nicest end of Chaweng beach and on a few nights a week is... More

We only stopped for dinner and brunch and the food was amazing, the owner was really hospitable and couldn't do more for us. He makes all the food from scratch at the front of the restaurant. I definitely recommend eating there, the flavours are perfect!!!!

He has to be one of the most humble kind man I have ever met; he sorted us out with rooms straight away and offered us any advice we may have wanted. Cyril will... More
