Rustic flashpacker style
The very rustic Pa Hin Sai runs along the northern edge of glorious To Khian beach and that is every bit what you are paying for -- the beach.
The wooden bungalows are each a little different but they're mostly oversized, with beds just mattresses on the floor and little in the way of creature comforts aside from lazy deck chairs and a table to place your drink on. The bathroom in the room we were shown was fume-y and a little grotty. On the upside the rooms have decent terraces and nearly all would enjoy good beach views. There a restaurant and bar area that overlooks the beach and there's an eclectic collection of hammocks and lazy chairs cast about. Overall, it wouldn't take much to much this a great place to stay, and the beach is stunning -- it's just a shame the bungalows are not better maintained.
