As soon as you arrive at Shambhala you feel like there is just you in the all island and nobody else, is nice, quite and you really feel part of the nature. The restaurant is REALLY good and all the people who are working there are friendly and smiling... I left there a part of my heart! Thanks!!!!!

First I want to start with the positive, the place itself is wonderful, really nicely built wooden huts, surrounded by lush vegetation, the beach is also nice, great for swimming and secluded, so it's never crowded. It's close to Thong Sala, which allows to get to town easily (though a motorbike is needed). That's why I give 4 stars to...

We stayed 5 nights in a standard fan bungalow with seaview and it was definitly the most incredible place at our tour through southeast asia. It felt a little bit like the jungle book. The bungalows are basic, in a wooden style with really nice terraces with hammocks. The food was excellent (if you are vegetarian: try the veggie burgers!...

To begin with, the location is lovely. I stayed on a beach front bungalow and the view was breathtaking, even the bungalow was good but it gets too warm in the night. You need to have an A.C. Also, if you are looking for a beach to swim, this isnt one. We walked for a km on both sides but...
