Cactus bungalow was a nice, peaceful little spot with a beach just outside your door step. Cute little place just outside the business of cheweng. Grab some scooters and make your way to cheweng, where you can eat delicious food and go do some shopping! Ps. Cactus bungalow has a nice pancake breakfast! 😎✌🏼️

I stayed here with my family for 3 nights in April 2016. The rooms are very nice, clean and well decorated. The resort is located in one of the quieter areas of koh samui right on the beach which is lovely! The food here is absolutely amazing!! We didn't go anywhere else to eat as we didn't want to miss...

I have spent few days there with my friends that came to Thailand for the first time. And we couldnt wish for a better place on the island. Quiet beach, no music or crowds, fresh fruits and snack sold on the beach by a local lady. Nice massage. The bungalows are simply furnished but clean and spacious and very close...

Although this place may not have the same finish as some of the other hotel resorts on Bophut Beach, Cactus Bungalow is an incredibly friendly, welcoming and authentic place to stay. The rooms come with air con and are perfectly functional and kept very clean. We stayed here as part of a larger wedding a party and without a doubt...

Cactus Bungalow is one of the very rare place on the island where you still can enjoy a bungalow on the beach while being a budget traveller. In addition the place is very friendly and the restaurant is very attractive. Pizza are excellent and few dishes signature are worth to try such as the tuna carpaccio. Last but not least,...

Most appalling breakfast I've had in a long while. Greasy omelette, warm bread and the icing on the cake, a 100 Baht Cafe Latte which was a watery pod, not even from an espresso machine, with some milk added. Yuck! You've been warned!

We got there by accident. We wanted a quiet spot on the beach and we found it. We stayed for the whole day. We took a message for the whole family. We ate a great lunch - food was realy tasty. Used the beach beds for free. All in all we highly recommend this beautiful place. And on top of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the middle of Bophut Beach. Created 13 years ago and designed by the owner. Still considers itself as a guest house. One of the last old school getaways in Samui. Attractive prices. Great food from traditional Thai to home-made pizza. Cocktail bar (great mojitos) and free pool-table. For the ones who like it smooth and simple. ... more   less
