“Expensive, but worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Gorgeous bungalows. Loved hanging in the hammock. Originally we booked a fan room to save money but showed up to find there were no bug nets or screens on the windows... so we would've been baking in there all night very uncomfortably. Fortunately we had the sense to upgrade at that point--there was actually an A/C unit inside our room already, but if you book a fan only room they remove the remote. The pool was great. There's a lot of families here so it wasn't very romantic at the pool or dining area but that didn't bother us. The breakfast was included and it was the best breakfast I ate while traveling all throughout Asia. They included coffee (with refills) and a smoothie with the a la carte item of your choice. The fruit and yogurt muesli was so filling I couldn't finish. The meals were expensive but comparable to the rest of the places on the island. There was a shuttle to the full moon party but it was way more expensive than the hotel a few doors down. Helpful staff also... my boyfriend stepped on a sea urchin on the beach and they had a stocked first aid kit and offered lots of support.

Firstly, the good. This little resort is so beautiful! The rooms are clean and spacious and the views of the beach from my hammock were amazing. Beds are comfortable and A.C worked well. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced. The swimming pool was nice and overlooked one of the nicest beaches in Koh Phangnan. I recommend taking a longboat to Bottle beach for lunch and swim. We travelled as a group of 3 friends for 4 nights and even despite the things I write in the below paragraph, I would still love to go back there again one day in the future.

We started out on a bad note with the lady manager as we had missed our ferry and therefore hotel pick up from pier, thru no fault of our own. We had to get a ferry to Haad Rin and then missed our complimentary pick up from Tongsala pier. I apologised when we did arrive under our own steam about 20 mins later in a taxi. It was obvious by the manageress' attitude and no welcome, that she was cross with us and she made us feel very uncomfortable. 10 minutes after arriving in our rooms, my friend leaned on the hand basin whilst picking a towel up and the whole ceramic basin crashed to the floor cutting her toe badly. Water and blood was all over the floor so they were moved to another room and given some bandages. After this, not one person asked over the next 3 days inquired about my friends injuries, even though they knew each day that she was having to see the local nurse to have the wound redressed, and all could see the massive black and blue bruising on legs. When we checked out and noticed that we had been charged 15 baht for a small bucket of ice, we asked the manager if she had considered the cost of all the nurses treatments that we had paid and the fact that not once had she had asked if my friend was ok. Her reply was only to ask how my friend had pulled the basin from the wall in the first place??? As if a 50 year old woman would do this on purpose!?

All the other staff were wonderful. We aren't the type of people that complain unnecessarily as you can see by my other reviews. If it wasn't for the Manageress' attitude, I would have gladly given Salad Hut a rating of 5.

Wow. This is paradise. The beach is beautiful. However, we arrived the day after full moon, so it was filthy and I was afraid that we made a mistake, but the following morning everything was clean and back to normal. The huts are very basic, but that is all you need. Great hammocks on every balcony. I am still sad that we didn't buy one to take home - they are for sale at their shop.
Pool is small but nice, but the best part is the restaurant - we usually like to try out a few in the area, but this one was SOOOO great that we had all 12 meals there. TV has some kids channels which was great, and the entire family had a wonderful time. I am looking forward to going back again!

Amazing time at Hut Salad Bungalows in Haad Salad Beach! December 2012.
A cousy resort with lush tropical gardens and a gleaming white sandy beach, a unique sanctuary of exotic beauty and comfort for people who seek a dream vacation. Nice weather, very beautiful bungalows, excelent thai and western food. Amazing sea facing bungalows with astonishing views of the sea for lazy sunset hammock time. Very clean, nice staff. Nice beach walks, Thai massage, Oil massage, enjoy also very much having dinner at at My Way bungalows bar-restaurant, seing the sunset at this place is also amazing, nice live music.
An excellent location, about 15 minutes drive from the main port of Thong Sala.
Very recommendable place to stay for a great beach holiday time!

Room Tip: Best bungalow: Sea facing bungalow on the corner, number 10.

Absolutely loved it after an average stay on Koh Tao. The beach is fantastic, but be warned you cannot swim at low tide. Loved the staff, the room, the vibe, the food. Can't fault it. One of the best places to have a bit of chilled beach time in Thailand for under £50 a night. As for Hat Salad bay-village, it has all you need for a relaxing break, about a dozen other bars-restaurants along the bay, with a small village and shops behind salad beach resort. Dived with Sail rock divers who I recommend too. I need to go back, right now :-)

We enjoyed 4 nights at Salad Hut and wish we could've stayed longer. Located right on the beach, it has a restaurant attached serving delicious home-made ice cream, wi-fi and a clean swimming pool. We visited during low season but weather was mostly fine. However this may have contributed to frequent power cuts (daily) lasting up to 2 hours - the perfect excuse to go next door for a massage or a dip in the sea! Rooms are spacious and clean with TV, aircon and safe. Staff were friendly and can assist in booking taxis, ferries, diving and tours. The library is the biggest we have come across in all our travels! We would love to stay here again.
