I have just spent ten glorious days unwinding at Scottish Fiona's and Thai Teep's stunning "Mai Pen Rai" bungallow resort. This was not my first time staying there and it wont be my last. The most glorious location and the staff are wonderful, the food delicious. My beachfront bungallow had direct views of the ocean and joyously lacking the incessant thud of air conditioning, it was a joy falling asleep to the sound of the waves. If you go, and YOU SHOULD, make sure to go and look at the prehistoric giant Monitor Lizards, swimming in the lagoon behind the restaurant. "Mai Pen Rai" is incredibly good value and a very peaceful, sand between your toes, haven from the worries of the world. If your looking for "Party Central", this is NOT the place for you. Noise and pandemonium will NOT be appreciated by those staying here for the tranquility of the location. I simply cannot find anything to complain about in "Mai Pen Rai" and I cant wait to get back again.
