Salad Hut Bungalows

Stayed here with my boyfriend for 6 nights and we couldn't be happier. Beautiful location (and the best spot on this beach), great rooms all with outside porch with chairs, small table and a hammock (we had the best room I think, called "deluxe", room nr. 10 which is right on the beach and bigger than the others), a small but beautiful and clean swimming pool, very good and friendly service (especially for Thai standards).
The whole resort is built up out of beautiful dark wood. Beds are ok but not spectacular.
They have free pick up service from Thong Sala (not Hat Rin so take the right boat), and take you anywhere when you leave for 100B.
We were here in low season and there were enough rooms available, the resort is small though (only 10 rooms and 2 family bungalows), so check out how things are in advance if you go during the high season.
Had Salad is a pretty quiet beach, with a couple of good places to eat, nice snorkeling and a little town with shops and ATMs where you can rent motorbikes. Don't expect a big party though!
Only one thing we think they can improve: the portions in the restaurant are a bit small, which made us order three meals for two on a number of occasions. Other than that, fantastic place!

We stayed two weeks with our two kids, the room was right on the beach, comfortable, spacious and very clean, the stuff very nice, the pool perfect, right on the beach, amazing service- one of the best we had. They clean the area and the rooms all the time so it's clear we highly reccomend. Just note that the food in the restaurant more expenssive than other places.

Wow. Salad hut is a welcoming environment to stay in! We stayed 4 nights within the beach bungalow. Nice bungalow at the beach, could not be better. 2 steps and you are in the sea, on the right after 30 meters swimming there is a coral reef which is great for snorkelling.

- The beach / bay is very restful. No big hotels, no chairs on the beach, no sales man dragging around, no water-ski rental, just perfect!

- Restaurant is great and very nice decorated. Food and staff are great and very help full.

We will come back for sure.

We stayed for 5 nights at the wonderful Salad Hut with our 2 children and it was perfect. We had been travelling around Bangkok and Chiang Mai and this was a great place to chill and relax.

We had one of the delux rooms for a family of 4 which was adequate in size. The bathroom is quite basic and the shower has fairly poor pressure but it does the job. There was a lovely balcony area with day bed, table and chairs as well as a much fought over hammock - and then of course the views... The sunsets are spectacular.

The Salad Hut does great food and is obviously enjoyed by non residents as well but the staff will take reservations if you want to eat there. They have a selection of different eating areas from tables almost on beach to Thai style cushion on the floor making for a very attractive area.

The pool is great, big enough to play in. There were several families staying at the same time but it never felt crowded and there are more than enough sunbeds in both sun and shade.

The tide is out most of the day so not such a great beach for swimming but has coral almost up until the shore which provided hours of entertainment. The coral is quite bleached from the sun but there is ample fish life to keep you interested. Definately a sea for shoes though - I got a coral cut with my 3rd step into the sea on the first day!

There are a few massage places along the beach which were great. The ladies will often call to you as you walk by but it is always in a friendly way that never made you feel pressurised.

Salad Resort, half way along the beach does great food.
Central Bar, very friendly and show football - a great favourite of my son!
Sail Rock Divers - fantastic company. my son did a taster dive which involved basic skills in a pool before 2 dives at sail rock the following day. Safe, organised and best of all we saw a bull shark!
Taxi's very expensive so if you don't have a scooter or car the bhats stack up!
Don Sala market on a Saturday evening disappionting apart from fantasic food... loads of stalls selling everything from noodles, fried chicken, pancakes, cakes and smoothies - Kids thought they were at a buffet, had there own money and just went around getting bits from different stalls.

Would not hesitate to recommend Salad Hut and Haad Salad. Can't wait to go back...

We stayed through the mid point of our honeymoon and we absolutely loved this place. we extended our stay twice.
We had the 2nd best bungalow about 10 yards from the beach but all bungalows surround the pool which is on the beach so nothing is more than 25 yards away.
The restaurant was great and the pool very clean and good fun.
We loved having families playing in the pool, if you on't like the noise go a bit further down the beach or head off to your day bed on the bungalow for a snooze.
Staff very friendly and massages great from next door.
We went low season so the prices were excellent and the place was very chilled. This is a beach for relaxing not partying or boozing beyond 11.

I reviewed at least 500 resorts using maps of the islands & Trip Advisor & decided the west coast with the sunset was the place for our 7 days on KPG. Seeing the great reviews on TripAdvisor I booked Salad Hut & we struck gold ! This place is now a firm favourite & we will return next year for longer ! The staff are wonderful, helpful, attentive, always smiling ! The motto is Shiny Happy People and it shows. We booked the 2 bedroom family bungalow ( we have 2 daughters) which had a large terrace with 2 sun beds and a table & 4 chairs. We could have food delivered here if we wanted & we had a cup of tea every morning & watched the fishermen wade through the shallow water to check their baskets they had set the night before. They would proudly come & show us the fish they had caught & were so friendly to our children. Next door we had a great massage daily - they also do hair braiding and face mask treatments & pedicures. The ladies were all very friendly and every day offered us a plate of fruit to try. At sunset we would marvel at the spectacular sky and have a drink on our terrace & each night a handful of people would walk along the beach to sit in front of Salad Hut to watch the sunset then leave as soon after or try to get a place in the restaurant - which was often full - as the food is excellent. We only ate here as why go somewhere else when you have great food on your doorstep? I could not have wished for a better location - the beach is lovely and very quiet.

The room was cleaned every morning & fresh towels were left. We asked for the room to be sprayed with anti-mosquitoe repellant and this was no problem. The next morning they did it again and this time left us a full can of spray. There are no more mosquitoes here than anywhere else - they just seem to follow me! The pool area is well kept, a good size with palm trees to give good shade plus there are enough beds for everyone.

If you are looking for paradise in Phangan then This Is It ! If you take my advice & stay here make sure you get to know Da in the restaurant and you will be well looked after !

Salad huts has a very nice staff. They will do anything to make your stay most comfortable. The bungalows are clean and comfortable. Stayed here 6 nights and we enjoyed the place very much.
Couples, please note that the majority of our fellow guests were families with children. Nothing wrong with that but it is good to know before you choose this excellent place.
