We came here for the last two weeks of our Thailand trip. All we wanted was a quite place with a balcony overlooking the sea and boy did we find it at this place! We stayed at the second seafront bungalow and it was awesome. The sound of the waves lulled us to sleep every night, we had great sunset...

If you like nice and quiet beach life, this is the place for you. Basic bungalows for the right price on the best beach on the island. The Burmese chef cooks excellent food, although the prices are a bit high.The only drawback is the useless WiFi only available in the restaurant. The owner has however promised to fix this.

For the cheapest accomodation on Buffalo bay, this place is awesome. Clean bungalows, good food, awesome sunset view and the cutest little girl on the island: the owner's 4 years old daughter! 2 minutes walk from the legendary Hippie Bar.

Could be a nice place if the moldy bedding was replaced, the bathrooms properly cleaned and the steps up to room were repaired. Still have to endure noisy generator from neighbour and monthly raves that keep the entire stretch of beach awake until 4.

First to say: Koh Phayam is awesome! And we stayed one more night longer in Starlight than we planned on our trip. The bungalow itself was nice, but also very basic... We had a stone bungalow in the back-garden. I think the beachfront-bungalows (out of wood) are nicer. So first the positive: - Very good E-Mail contact and fast responses...

Very nice place. Starlight has very good food and staff. The bungalow is cheap and standard is ok with the price. Lication is ok. Many mosquitos but the place is in between trees so it's natural. The staff is very friendly and speaks great english. Nice beds. A little scary for families with small children I think but perfect for...

Ko Phayam is great island, away from the crowds. Stayed at Ko Phayam for just under a week, the accommodation is the cheapest on the island I believe. The cheaper huts where I stayed were basic but did have their own toilet and severed their purpose. The bigger Bungalows were a lot better quality, but double the price, so it...

We' ve very much enjoyed our stay at Starlight Bungalows. This place is extraordinary - in the nature, right next to the beach and away from the mainstream tourism. The bungalows are rather simple and clean. Food is all day freshly prepared and excellently coocked; eat whenever you like. The stuff is very friendly and helpful. We and our three...
