“Quiet and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2015 via mobile

we're (6people) staying there already 5th time in a row for about a month. bungalows are right at the beach for an excellent price. clean and spaces with AC and fridge. food in the restaurant is very good and the best part is that the beach is most of the time just for us with nice breeze and view on Kom Samui. the owner and staff are very friendly sharing their own food with us. if you're looking for quiet place to stay with nice beach this is the place.

I've been there in 2004, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 1014.
I'm coming back in 2015.
Good location: not far from haad rhin, not far from the parties in Ban tai and the afters in Ban sabai.
Bungalow 400-600 baths with fan, now they have small fridges.
The staff is super friendly.
It's a peacefull place.
The dogs can be anoying sometimes. But their presence avoid thieves!!
The rooms in front have air-conditioners and are more expensive (1000 baths or more..)

Have a nice stay!!

We had overall a good 3 nights stay in Thong Yang Bungalows. There was a confusion on arrival as the booked bungalow was finally no more available. So we stayed one night in bungalow 3, and two nights in bungalow 22, for the same price as initially decided (no extra charge).

The bungalows are clean and spacious. There is a fridge and enough electricity slots in the room.
Bungalow number 3 is very large, and can accommodate 4 to 5 persons. It is build on the rocks, with some parts visible, it's very unique.
Bungalow number 22 is a little higher on the hill, on the same side like bungalow number 3. It can accommodate 2 to 3 persons, has a huge bathroom. It is more like a wooden chalet.

The way the bungalows are built, as well as the setting, is very enjoyable. You can actually stay there and relax, read a book, ... If you want to explore the island, location is Ok but not ideal. There are not many shops and restaurants around, you need to rent a scooter. It is quite well located if you plan to attend the full moon party and cannot find availability in Haad Rin, as you need only 15 min drive to reach by shared taxis.

We did not try the food served by the family there.

Overall pleasant stay, though the hosts are not friendly neither helpful. They only recommended us someone for a scooter rental because we insisted. It is a pity for such a beautiful place!

If what matters to you is a beach side quiet bungalow, then it is for you. If you look for helpful staff and easily accessible shops/restaurants, better go to a more lively area of the island.

Room Tip: Better to come and see for yourself which bungalow is available and what it looks like, anyway they...

If you're in need of pure relaxation, away from the sounds of the city, this is the place for you. On arrival we met the charming, energetic Mr A, who instantly created the perfect holiday atmosphere - calm relaxing and attentive to our every need. As we sat in the shade of a coconut tree, we watched traditional fishermen at work and savoured the sublime turquoise waters, tropical flowers and peaceful coves. When we inquired about the types of fresh fish on the menu, Mr A suggested that we try the Red Snapper, which he would personally source from the local market the next day. Well, the fish was absolutely delicious and was cooked by his lovely wife (Mrs B) in a traditional sauce. As it's a family run business, you get to see his little daughter who has a great playful character! Definitely a place to stay if you wish to enjoy a piece of paradise! Cheesy but true!

A great little spot about 5 min drive from full moon party. Basic but all you need. The bungalows are quite cute and the surroundings very different, not a high-maintenance place which is what we loved about it, makes for the whole Thailand experience. The restaurant serves up wicked food with exceptional service from the manager, A. The western food served there was of high standard and the Thai food even better. Loved every minute

First up, my rating is based on our overall experience, not just the quality of the resort. The rooms are basic bungalows and have a nice balcony, ac and a fridge. The beach is shallow and calm but at low tide, the water retreats a fair bit.
The restaurant serves all types of delicious food and drinks and is very well priced.
And the staff are just lovely, in particular A. He is such a well mannered gentleman who is always smiling and wanting to make you feel welcome. About a 5 minute dive to haad rin if you want some bars/restaurants. Had a really nice stay.

Stayed there for 3 nights in May, was so lovely and peaceful and tranquil, the beach is private and very chilled out and the bungalows are perfect! The man who owns the place is a genuinely lovely guy who only wants the best for you and is so clearly grateful for the booking, as mentioned in previous comments it's family run so bookings obviously make a difference to the family. One note I'd make is that if you don't like dogs/are scared of dogs then I wouldn't stay because they do bark from time to time and when they did I thought it would be a huge problem for my brother who's scared of dogs, but if you don't mind them the place is paradise!
