Me and my partner came here for our honeymoon and weren't disappointed. The accommodation is better than average backpacker accommodation on a truly stunningly beautiful beach. It was our favourite place that we stayed all trip! The grounds that the bungalows are set in were very well looked after and very pretty. The food was lovely and not too unreasonably priced considering it is right on the beach. The staff were fantastic, 'A' (don't know how you spell his name, had us in hysterics and Watcharin was really helpful and gave us good advice when hiring a motorbike. You can now access the rest of the island by motorbike, although the drive is very dusty. They have fixed a lot of the roads, which is good. I wouldn't want to do the journey in the dark though and i wouldn't attempt it if I'd never been on a bike before.
We stayed in Bungalow number 1 (the best one) and the view from our balcony was superb. It looks like all bungalows were a decent size though (our friends stayed in bungalow 3) and they all had hammocks (vital I think lol). Also our had hot water, but we didn't really use it as it was so hot. Also our toilet was a western style toilet and the shower was in the same room, like a wet room (like most Thai bathrooms that I experienced on my trip) as opposed to have a bath or shower cubicle. The room was bigger than average and had shelves where you could keep your clothes. The fan worked quite well, but was a bit noisy on highest volume, so we kept it on medium volume. There were 2 beds in our bungalow, so it would suit a family (one double and one single).
I would fully recommend this place to anyone and I think it looked like the best value place to stay on the beach if you don't mind not having a pool. the sea is so gorgeous I don't see why you need a pool really. If you need a pool, you can use Dreamlands very nice looking pool with a swim up bar for I think 200 baht a day. at the other end of the beach
We wish we were still there!!!
