We stayed at Thapwarin for 2 nights after coming from Koh Lanta and before going on to Krabi. We had a nice time there, but would not have wanted to be there longer than 2 days. The beach is not ideal for swimming as there are too many rocks and sea urchins and when the tide is low there is no water at all. The bungalows are loveley, although may be a bit too close to each other. Everything was nice and clean and we really liked the open air bathroom and had no problems whatsoever. The staff was very friendly, but the service in the restaurant is very slow. Also, the food is average at best compared to all other places we've been to in 3 weeks. (There is a small seafood restaurant only a ten minute walk away on the beach, which is fantastic and even serves breakfast.) As there really isn't anything to do on Koh Ngai and the beach is not inviting for swimming ist is probably not the best place to go unless you want to spend a few days just reading and relaxing. I would not recommend to stay more than 3 days max though as that may get depressing for a lack of things to do. People we met at the resort told us that they had the best time on Koh Mook, which is only 20 minutes by longtail boat from Koh Ngai. Apparently, there the beach there is sandy with no rocks and great for swimming and snorkeling. The place that was recommended to us is called Sivaley (or something like it) but we didn't have the chance to see it. I would probably not go back to Koh Ngai because we would check out the place on Koh Mook instead. However, I liked it and would recommend it for 2 quiet days of relaxing in a loveley atmosphere.
