“Best bungalows on the beach!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Asia bungalows is situated approx 35 mins from thong sala pier costing 200baht per person in a group taxi. Situated in lovely grounds on haad salad bay are 10 bungalows, 3 of which are directly on the beach. All bungalows have seaview from veranda. Mrs bee (the owner) is a very sweet lady that can organise anything for you during your stay, for example she provided us with a taxi (her husband) to take us back to the pier at 5:30am on New Year's Day which they charged 300baht for the pair of us (150thb each). Rooms were basic but very clean and well kept. We found the air con was too strong but the fan was just right. Room had a safe which didn't work but we was provided a key to a cupboard with a lock. Rooms cleaned and sheets and towels changed every other day. Got given 2 bottles of water every day in our fridge. Room also has kettle and bottle opener. Plenty of places to eat on the beach when you turn left or right. Our favourite for during the day was 'my way'. Of an evening we enjoyed the restaurant right next door when facing the sea on your right great food and even better value for money. We also enjoyed haad salad beach restaurant (next door to my way) and haad salad villa (turn left when facing sea). Several shops behind the back of 'my way ' all provide taxis. Ours to the full moon party was 200thb per person one way.

We stayed her for 2 nights and it's a great little find. Cute little bungalows set in tropical gardens and as there's no restaurant or bar on the property it is really peaceful and laid back. Not having it's own restaurant isn't a problem as you just walk onto the beach and turn left or right and there are plenty of places to eat. Our choice was Salad Hut just to the left of Asia Bungalows. The bungalows are quite spacious with large bathrooms and the old couple who run the place are lovely, they also offer taxi service which was cheaper than the ones we found further along the beach.

Room Tip: The rooms that overlook the beach are great, but do get the really hot afternoon sun.

This place is a hidden gem, the rooms are spotless. Sea views to die for. This is easily the best place to stay on Haad Sallad. We visited with friends it perfect for relaxing, the staff there are so welcoming and happy to help. The sea is warm and very clean at this part of the beach. It is located close to restaurants and l would go back there every year if I could. There are swings attached to the palm trees it is totally stunning excellent value for money.

Room Tip: The sea views and the front bungalows are the best views and the tiny bit extra to pay is really wor...

After travelling for 8 months we treated ourselves to 3 nights here right on the beach. Our bungalow was modern, clean, had an en-suite, small area with sink and fridge, kettle and glasses. Two balconies, one round the side and one facing the sea where we sat most nights to watch the sunset. Its only a small resort immaculately kept by very friendly owners. The beach front bungalows are only 300 baht more than the others but definitely worth it. Waking up to the view through the patio doors every morning was heavenly. Would definitely stay there again and thoroughly recommend it.

The most amazing place to stay at when you're visiting Haad Salad, absolute a great price when you're looking for some more luxury on this island. Beautiful view over the sea from an amazing green garden with beautiful palm trees and flowers every where. Also the lady who works there is so incredibly nice, pleas do say hi from me when you visit!

Room Tip: All great bungalows, but you might want to choose for one near to the sea to enjoy the best view fro...

Fantastic place. My family and I (2 adults and 2 children aged 4 and 6) stayed at this place for 12 nights. It is without a doubt the best place to stay at Haad Salad beach. Small bungolows situated in a large beautiful garden right on the beach. The family that runs the place is very serviceminded - they even have a taxiservice. Only "problem" is that there is no breakfast included. This is not a reason not to choose this place. When you walk from the bungalow to the beach, turn to your right and walk 150 m. Right after the My Way place you can buy a breakfast buffet for 200 baht pr. adult and 100 baht pr. child. If you are looking for a great place to dine at night we highly recommend this place as well. My Way makes the best cheeseburger on the whole island though.
Asia Bungalows gets our best recommendation...

If you are looking for a marvelous low key place to rest your head, this is it. It is located in the middle of Haad Salad beach on the NW (lee side) of Koh Phangan. Very romantic location and good place for families. There are great restaurants along the beach, a cute little village at the end of the beach and all necessities within easy walking distance. Ocean is great for swimming and snorkeling. It is quaint and quiet so don't come here if you want to party. The 9 bungaloes are clean and modern and the owners are very gracious and do a marvelous job of meeting your every need. The grounds used to be a coconut plantation so are spacious, clean, and well maintained. Everything about this place is perfect-five stars without the price. Best to book early in high season because it fills up early.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect but only two are actually on the beach. All others are within 30 meters of bea...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Asia Bungalow is located on idyllic Haad Salad, a pure white sand beach in a picture perfect bay with all the trappings of tropical island life. The beach is fringed with coconut palms and as Haad Salad is relatively undeveloped for Koh Phangan, it is usually deserted and so peaceful that you feel the beach is all yours. Crystal clear emerald green waters are home to a vibrant coral reef that lies just 80 metres from the shore and attracts both scuba divers and snorkeling enthusiasts to one of the Island's premier dive sites. The accommodation at Asia Bungalows is built and finished with a total of eight rooms, all equipped with all air condition, bathroom with hot and cold shower and Mini Bar. * Air-Con Room * Family Bungalow Air-Con * Superior Bungalow Air-Con As Asia Bungalows has just ten rooms, the family atmosphere is always friendly and intimate and all of the rooms make the most of their excellent beachfront location with stunning sunset sea views. There are five basic island style huts Asia Bungalows and four modern Thai-style villas. Each of the villas are newly built and finished to very high standards; with hot and cold shower, separate kitchen area, western bathroom and ceramic floors throughout. All of the rooms contain a double bed and a single bed can be added at a cost of 150 Baht per night. There are mosquito screens on the windows and the rooms and balconies are generously proportioned to ensure your complete comfort. The restaurant at Asia Bungalows is right on the central beach section of Haad Salad. It serves a vast range of speciality and local Thai dishes including excellent seafood and also provides a good selection of western food. Weather you are having a meal or taking a break from the beach with a cool refreshing fruit shake, you can rest assured that the taste will be as good as the surroundings. At Asia Bungalows there is more than enough to keep you occupied and all in a place where it is so easy to do nothing! There is volleyball, badminton, great swimming, snorkelling and even kayaking! A nearby minimart has all the bits and pieces you might need on your visit to Haad Salad and there is also motorbike hire, internet, international telephone and fax services available. Boat and fishing trips are easily booked and massages can be arranged either on your balcony or right on the beach. If you're looking for things to do and see around Haad Salad, the west coast of Koh Phangan has something for everyone. The rich coral reef that surrounds this side of the Island is a haven for marine life, making the region a hotspot for divers and snorkelling enthusiasts alike. Nearby Koh Ma is a small island just off the west coast of Koh Phangan and is the only National Marine Park within Phangan's waters. Here it possible to spot turtles, harmless reef sharks and swim amongst shoals of colourful tropical fish. The region is fairly mountainous away from the coast, and there are a number of mountain trails and walks to follow; and with the large concentration of beaches in the west, it is possible to beach hop up and down the coastline. Wang Sai waterfall is within walking distance and nearby Laem Son is a giant freshwater lake, shaded by tall pine trees with giant rope swings! ... more   less
