My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights. Nice location and quiet. It was a nice experience to live in a simple bugalow. Though I felt they where not maintaining the place.We did not sleep so well so we moved to a better place. We all loved the massage at the beach. A young man gave very good massage.... More

The hotel is perfect from nature lovers as the bungalows are ecological. We stayed for 4 nights. The view is perfect, the beach not crowded and the stand massage is great. First I was afraid because it was a guy but finaly he's very kind and look after you very well. The only negative point is the owner : not... More

Origina; huts made of straw, thatched roofs, plain plank floors (mind the gaps, little things tend to fall through to the sand underneath ). Huge, comfortable beds, realaxing hammocks on the verandas! Simply paradise! We booked 2 nights and stayed at the ocean view huts. Laying on the hammock and enjoying the magnificent sunset and the sea from your veranda... More

If you're looking for an authentic beach bungalow holiday in a magical setting this is my pick.certainly not 5 star but thats not what I wanted. Its no frills, very comfortable mattress, cold shower, towel provided.The hosts and staff are lovely and their restaurant also looks out over the water and food is good. The hammocks on the balcponies are... More

We stayed in the 'small garden view' bungalows for 9 nights over New Year and it was perfect for us. It was very simple, raised up on stilts, the bungalow was just made of wood and bamboo, with gaps looking down onto the vegetation below. Sometimes we were joined by little insects, but it truly was like being in nature.... More

We stayed in the third row (800thb a night) and the bungalow was just amazing. Beautifully made out of bamboo and wood. Bathroom is seperated from sleeping room by a selfmade shell curtain. The bed was huge and very compfy and the mosquito net was needed, due to no glass windows but that was nice as we could hear the... More

This was meant to be the relaxing part of our trip but failed to meet our expectations in so many ways. We had paid way over the worth of the room for a beach front hut and when we arrived were given a room with the view of next door resorts massage room with the next door resort music playing...

Great atmosphere and beach. Quiet location. If you have a problem sleeping in an open bungalow, then do not book here. Nice, big comfortable beds with mosquito nets, cold water bathrooms and inviting porches with 2 hammocs and 2 big comfy chairs. Would definitely recommend this place, the staff were lovely and very accommodating.
