We had a particularly unfortunate stay at this "resort". The manager was awful. We stayed here in the off season in late April yet they charged full price for the rooms and refused to reduce the costs even when we rented two rooms. We would have gone somewhere else at this point but the couple we were traveling with preferred... More

We visted Koh Phayam as we had heard that it was a relatively untouched paradise island, not at all touristy like some of the other thai islands. Unfortunately we visited during rainy season! Which meant that we couldn't really sit out on the beautiful beach. We had a family room which was big, clean and well-decorated, but the shower was... More

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed the island very much. The beach at Payam cottage is quiet and clean. We paid for a room with AC. The room is overpriced since there was no fridge or a kettle. The Burmese staff at the restaurant was very friendly and very helpful. I felt she was doing the managers job... More

This island was what we were looking for: quietness, beautiful white sand beach, some restaurant options nearby, space. Payam cottage offered us a comfortable cottage to make our stay a good one that was absolutely memorable. The first night we had a cottage with sea view, just fantastic. It came with ants though. The nights after we had a garden... More

The resort is located at Ao Khao Kwai which is.. in my opinion.. such a beautiful beach in koh payam. Staff are lovely & friendly. Room is nice and clean. Breakfast may be a little bit small but it's ok. Wifi in the room is imposible to get it (I think my room is quite far from the router in... More

We had a perfect stay and can recommend the place. If available take a bungalow as close as possible to the beach, here you experience the perfect and relaxing environment. The food is great and the kitchen really clean (I had a "tiny cooking class" there as I asked for the recipe of the panang Curry).

Very nice and clean bungalows on beautiful and wonderful Koh Phayam. Nothing to complain about, right on the beach and a nice pool with a restaurant. Dont forget to visit Kwang Peeb Beach on the northern tip of the island.

Payam Cottage is suitable if you are looking for a place right on the nicest beach of Payam island. Buffalo bay has a white sandy beach and the water is clear but you cannot swim when the tide is low in the morning. There's the pool near the restaurant and the food was great as well. We did not have... More

30 bungalows or so, mostly empty during the week we stayed there. fantastic location, during the high tide, it feels like beeing in the Maldives. and during the low tide, the cosy swimming pool is a nice option we did not eat there except for a few occasions in the morning, and the breakfast is something they really have to...
