Come for the beach, stay for the food
This very popular and charming bungalow resort is set in a quiet spot that's a fair distance south of the nearest neighbours and a long walk north of the southern Andaman Beach resorts.
Offering more style than your average beach hut, the rooms are set well apart from one another in a shady area with no shortage of flowers and birdsong. Constructed from a mix of wood, bamboo and concrete, the bungalows have lines of screened windows to go with hardwood floors, soft beds in fine maroon sheets on bamboo frames, mosquito nets, good fans, clean cold-water bathrooms with modern appliances and relaxing porches. Larger bungalows have extra single beds and are a good deal for families. While the rooms are great, Woodland's biggest draw is probably the attached Fighting Fish Restaurant, which serves some of the best Thai and Western food on the island. Even if you don't stay here, be sure to stop by for a taste.
