What we say: 4 stars

Located just past Phutawan where the trail to Tonsai begins, Cabana Garden is the antithesis of Railay’s sprawling upscale resorts. A small collection of rustic but well-kept bamboo and coconut wood bungalows are nestled over a hill with a shaggy limestone cliff rising up behind. Similar to the simple rooms found over on Tonsai, they come with rough wood floors with small gaps between the boards, firm beds with mosquito nets, wall-mounted fans, a couple of windows and dark cold-water wet bathrooms. Often catching the sea breeze as it blows inland from Railay East, large private porches are the stuff that traveller daydreams are made of. This is a family-run spot with plenty of breathing room and chickens clucking beneath the mango, guava and banana trees. We arrived to find two young ladies casually munching on curry and rice while watching TV in the open-air reception area. Limited English is spoken but the people we’ve met here are pleasant, in the slow-paced sort of way that you’d expect. Cabana Garden has no website and is not on any of the booking sites; you could try calling but most guests are walk-ins.
