Their e-mail isn't working, but when you arrive by bus you can call them. There are very friendly people, willing to show you the firefly, private beach, turtle, night market and other places around. Nice room, nice budget. Go here! There is no atm so take enough money with you.

I've stayed in Payung in all 3 of my visits to Cherating. Generally it is a good place to stay; perfect for budget travellers. Do expect some company when visiting the toilet, not that I mind frogs. Located beside the river, you may rent a kayak. The guesthouse is situated 5 minutes away from the beach and it is in... More

Booked a bungalow and made a payment that was authorized through its online website and Paypal.Received a confirmation email about bungalow booking. Unfortunately when we arrived at the hotel after a long drive from the city, the owner informed there is no booking pertaining to this and all bungalows are fully booked, in a rude manner. Furthermore, the landlord informed... More

I booked this place for next week and have paid the deposit upfront. I was trying to arrange transport with them and the emails have just ceased. The website is no longer there and the phone doesn't work. I've had to make last minute alternative arrangements as it seems like the place is no longer there.

I come here once a year since 2008 for surfing during the monsoon season. Payung's quaint little chalets has got its ups and downs over the years. Recent stay reflects notable maintenance and hospitality. Place is remarkably clean (check out the louvre windows, even those are clean!) - bare but clean toilets - clean beds with mosquito nettings - towels... More

Cherating didn't have the best weather when we went, but Payung did well as a shelter despite how basic it was. Kampung styled chalets with clean towels and sheets, new air-conditioning, mostly functional Wi-Fi and a few boards to rent, the place was cozy and did it for the two of us. Nick who runs the place is a great... More

Cerating is generally overpriced, but is a lovely relaxed beach scene without the modern embellishments of high rise and high pressure. Most accommodation is chalet style. At Payung Guesthouse you get clean well run chalets, a companionable atmosphere, and the extraordinarily friendly and helpful Mr Nick. He will organize activities, advise on food and drink, or explain your transport options.... More

This place is exactly what you pay for. No frills but clean and comfortable. The owner is excellent and has a lot of knowledge as well as helping to book onward travel and tours in the area. Cheating is a great stop and definitely choose payung if on a budget!

Stayed a night here. Booked 2 queen size bedroom, fan and attached bathroom for only rm60. Towel and mosquito net are provided. There's only 2 plug point in the room. One of it use for the fan, so the traveler only have another one. I prefer you guys bring along your external plug point.
