My friends and I stayed here mid November. We stayed in 2 x luxury tents and one sea-view bungalow. Both were comfy and clean. The luxury tents were surprisingly luxurious. We all had a good nights sleep in the tents even with the sound of...More

About
Description
Our resort is called 'Friends' because we like to see our guests not just as customer but like friends who stay with us to have a good time. 'Friends Bungalow' is located on the north half of Aow Yai beach at Koh ...More Phayam, a beautiful island in the Andaman Sea southwest of Ranong in Thailand. The nature and the wildlife are amazing, white beaches with clear water and only a few tourists. There are no cars on the island. Aow Yai (big bay) is on the west side of the island, the north half of the 3,5 km wide bay is the quieter part of the beach. We have 4 sea view bungalows, 2 garden bungalows and 6 furnished tents on elevated wooden platforms, each with private bathroom and a roof made from nature materials that protects the tent from sunshine and rain. All the windows have mosquito nets that allow the sea breeze to come in without having the room full of uninvited animals. Our mattresses are clean and from good quality. Our restaurant has a beautiful sea view and you can choose to sit under palm trees in the sand, on our wooden platform with Thai pillows and Japanese tables or in our open restaurant underneath a palm leaf roof. We serve delicious Thai food as well as Burmese food, steak, pizza, pasta and other western dishes. We use solar energy and offer 24 hours electricity in our restaurant. Less
