“Basic, but awesome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

My husband and I spent 4 nights here. We where planning to stay only 2, but decided to stay as it was just great place to chill and get away from the resorts and business that we had experienced in the time leading up to stay here.
It is VERY basic - 4 walls, a bed and a bathroom (with only cold water) but we found it clean and comfortable. All of this right on the beach! Plus the snorkling is great there!
The people who run the place are awesome! They are a big part of what makes this place so great.
They run a restaurant and bar from here as well and their food is really good! We ate the there most of the time and spent the evenings chilling on the beach with fellow travelers, drinking beer and enjoying the sunset.
Highly recommended if you don;t mind basic accommodation and mozzies.

This is a simple and no-frills experience; so don’t book expecting anything other than the most basic accommodation. It’s also a long walk down a soft sand beach if you are dragging a heavy suitcase – so be warned. Mae Haad is a great place to come for a few days if you are touring around Koh Phangan – but there’s not much here apart from a nice beach and a few bars and restaurants, so it might not be the best spot to spend more time than that unless all you want is somewhere cheap and cheerful to top up your tan. We went for the beachfront bungalow option and got room number one. It’s the closes to the bar though, so you get kitchen noises early and late, which might be an issue for some people. Watch out for mosquitoes as we got some nasty bites here – but if you take a decent repellent you should be OK. If you need cash then the nearest ATM is at the SevenEleven in the next village along the northern coast. You can walk it, but it’s a bit of a hike.

Room Tip: The rooms set back from the beach are probably a little quieter late at night and early in the morni...
