This hotel is located on the beach. It has a nice beachy vibe to it, but it has some problems. The owner is not always in the best of moods. The bed is incredibly stiff. The rooms aren't the cleanest. And on one of the instances of dining at their restaurant, they tried to overcharge me. When I called them...

This is the place to stay to get away from it all. As a family of 4, we stayed for 3 nights. These cute bungalows are within meters from the beach, a bit rustic, and hot without the AC. The food was the best, great menu selection for all meals. Staff very friendly, and location was perfect. Overall, a charming...

We stayed in room 15 for one evening. We wanted a standard room with two single beds, but had to opt for a family room instead. No wifi in rooms, only down near the bar area, thought that was quite poor. No real place to hang clothes in the room if you're staying for a longer period than we did....

A beautiful and rustic place. My boyfriend and I stayed here after traveling through Bangkok and Chiang Mai looking for a place to kick our feet up and relax. This was couldn't have been more perfect! The bungalow is surrounded by plants and feels very private, the beach has beautiful crystal blue waters and white sands. We would definitely go...

Stunning and chill bungalows in jungle settings on the beach. For food, visit Village Bar and Restaurant in the village. Opened only 2 weeks ago by former massage therapist from Chiang Mai. Breakfast is great, but dinner is superb. Had the deep fried crispy whole red snapper with special tamarind sauce and crisped garlic. Best fish ever tasted - sublime.

If you feel like a relaxed rustic simple island Holliday then this is the spot. Beautiful forest feel to the bungalows. Decent Resturant/Bar on the beach. Room was basic but great value for the price. Great relaxed beach with lots of restaurants to choose from.
