Modern hotel and a giant pool
The biggest hotel on the island, the 162-room Cabana almost certainly breaks local building regulations because of its size, and you'll either love it or hate it.
On the plus side, it has a very well-sized, freeform pool, attractive rooms -- some with cracking sea views. On the downside, it's huge, garish, made from block cement, and one of the only hotels you can spot from the ocean. Whereas the other accommodation on Phi Phi leans to the subtle, Cabana doesn't know what the word means. The rooms are of good size, many of them corner units which offer awesome views of Lo Dalam bay. Other rooms have views of Ton Sai bay. Fine white linens and polished wood floors are complemented by some modern Lanna fabrics and artwork. Some rooms have a Jacuzzi on the balcony. Facilities include WiFi, minibar, air-con, hot water and cable TV. Its newest addition is an open-air beachside restaurant, which is overpriced but offers good views of the busy Ton Sai bay. The proximity to the pier is a bonus if you are a family struggling with luggage.
