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

Cactus bungalow was a nice, peaceful little spot with a beach just outside your door step. Cute little place just outside the business of cheweng. Grab some scooters and make your way to cheweng, where you can eat delicious food and go do some shopping! Ps. Cactus bungalow has a nice pancake breakfast! 😎✌🏼️

I stayed here with my family for 3 nights in April 2016. The rooms are very nice, clean and well decorated. The resort is located in one of the quieter areas of koh samui right on the beach which is lovely! The food here is absolutely amazing!! We didn't go anywhere else to eat as we didn't want to miss...

I have spent few days there with my friends that came to Thailand for the first time. And we couldnt wish for a better place on the island. Quiet beach, no music or crowds, fresh fruits and snack sold on the beach by a local lady. Nice massage. The bungalows are simply furnished but clean and spacious and very close... 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
