A short walk further past Sea Breeze brings you to this rather quirky place that falls somewhere between 'resort', 'hotel' and 'guesthouse'.
Though it's easy to find, it really does have a “lost” feel to it. When we arrived, a lonely-looking Thai guy popped up from behind the tiny reception hut, and it didn't seem like any guests were staying here. Accommodation is also a bit odd. The wooded hillside would have been perfect for a string of simple wood or bamboo bungalows, but instead it has a big, out-of-place two-storey brown and cream coloured concrete building with rows of rooms on either floor. As the rooms have become more “lived in” over recent years, prices have come down accordingly. Rooms come in a choice of either fan or air-con (they just shut off the air if you don't want it) and are well equipped with ceiling fans, little fridges, desks, basic wet bathrooms and comfy beds -- even if the linens have seen better days. Each room has a decent porch out front (don't forget that mosquito repellent). If you're not expecting the lap of luxury, you should do fine here. It's a five-minute walk to Ao Phai and 10 minutes to Ao Tubtim.
