We spent 5 nights here in march.
This place is wonderfull with a very nice quiet beach. The view from the restaurant is "postcard" perfect. The bungalows are a bit basics but very nice and in harmony with the nature, in wooden style with mosquitoe net and a big terrace with a hammock and a mattress. Even though our bungalow was not on the beach, it was very nice and relaxing, listening at the night's jungle sounds...
Also good because 5mn away by taxi or motorbike from the main village Thongsala. From the main road you can also climb up to a bar for a stunning sunset view.
Very good value for money, don't hesitate to come to this little paradise...
When you arrive by boat, don't take the collective taxis with the other tourists, they are very expensive (150 baths/pers). Walk straight to the center and get a taxi there, it will be cheaper.
