If you want to be in a lost and beautiful place, far away from everything, if you like to sleep in a beautiful treehouse bungalow above the sea, very clean and with basic comfort, then Mai pen rai is the place that your are looking for. This place is peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. Nothing much to do than relax on the beach and hike to the waterfall. The bungalows on the rocks are impressing. You hear the waves, the birds and your bathroom is on rocks. From your big balcony you can see all the fishermen's boats at night. Beds are big and very comfortable. The beach is beautiful and perfect with small kids. You can rent kayaks on the beach and take a trip around. And the restaurant is so nice. Dishes are generous and delicious. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxing. Last but not least, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
important advice: if you can, organize your transfer from the pier in Thong sala in advance with the hotel. We couldn't do it and when we arrived at 19.00, we had to pay the local taxi 1200bht as the road is really bumpy and difficult. With the hotel's taxi, it costs 800bht.
