Reclusive backpacker hideaway

What we say: 4 stars

Hidden beyond a rocky outcrop past the western end of Ao Kao and only accessible via a steep road at high tide, Baan Ing Kao is the original bungalow joint on tiny Laem Tookkata beach. Here you'll find a super-relaxed atmosphere, with travellers who need a break from the “real world” lounging on hammocks and enjoying the excellent snorkelling opportunities found just off the coast. Bountiful flowers and birdsong make up for the lack of WiFi. The relatively spacious and rustic wood stilted bungalows are perched on a hill overlooking the sea. They come with firm beds on raised platforms, mosquito nets, simple cold-water bathrooms and front porches, some of which have hammocks. The relaxed and friendly owners serve home-cooked Thai food in the small hillside restaurant. If Baan Ing Kao is full, the newer Baan Laem Tookkata has similar wood bungalows at similar prices next-door, though we didn't receive the same welcoming attitude from the staff there.
