Rooms are clean, nice quality, nice designs. Really comfortable beds and hot shower! Front beach, nice restaurant looking over the beach, but is a bit overpriced, meal for 2 more than 600baht and breakfast 400baht, they even charge for extra butter... They don't have motorbikes to rent and is not much around, a few more resorts but not much to... More

The bungalow/restaurant is located on the beach which gives a great view during our dinner. They are specialized in Italian and Thai cooking and the dishes we ordered were excellent. The atmosphere is very friendly, laid-back and refreshingly unpretentious.

Lovely chilled out place serving great food and playing cool laid back tunes. Proper pizza oven too if you fancy a change from Thai food and a good cocktail list. Wish we we stayed there instead of nearby Peace Resort. A little oasis in Bophut.

Cactus is a wonderful place to have dinner with a beach view. Or if you just want a drink. The food is excellent, the staff is very friendly. I recommend the pizzas, Italian style and delicious. Make a reservation during the day as they also have bungalows and it can be busy.

Incredible a place allong a beautiful coast to sleep and eat. We stayed here for four nights in a four person apartment with airco. They also serve great food and even a very good Italian style pizza. You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner or just a quick bite. Prices at very reasonable. The restaurant looks like a small club...

Great place for all nationalities with lovely good value food. Hosts are very friendly and attentive. Open front with brilliant views! Tip: the pizzas are fab :) Both Thai and western food available, it's really worth a visit. Much better food than the majority of the area

We decided on a whim to book the sea view room for our last day in Thailand to be closer to the airport rather than travelling from Koh Tao on our departure day. It's a quiet little area right on the beach with a decent restaurant and not too far to walk to the main road. The pricing for the... More

We spent 10 nights at the end of March/beginning of April at Cactus and it was just perfect. We stayed in one of the air conditioned bungalows which was very welcoming in the heat. We had fresh towels every day, the bed was made and the floor was swept. The bungalow also had a safe for passports etc. and the... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend. The location was perfect for us, quiet and right on the beach. Amazing views! The bungalow was great for the price. We wished there had been an air conditioned room available. Maybe next time :) I would definitely recommend staying here for a few days. The only negative was the lack... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the middle of Bophut Beach. Created 13 years ago and designed by the owner. Still considers itself as a guest house. One of the last old school getaways in Samui. Attractive prices. Great food from traditional Thai to home-made pizza. Cocktail bar (great mojitos) and free pool-table. For the ones who like it smooth and simple. ... more   less
