What we say: 3.5 stars

Located just past Phutawan Resort where the trail to Tonsai begins, Railay Cabana is the antithesis of the upscale resorts found at Railay West. No more than a dozen simple but spacious cold water bungalows are nestled on a hill with a limestone cliff rising up behind. Both the smaller old bungalows and newer editions were fully booked when we arrived, but we were told they all have either one double or two twin beds with fans, wood floors and mosquito nets. The big porches sure look inviting. This is a family-run spot with chickens clucking about beneath the mango and banana trees. There's no WiFi, little English is spoken and the young lady who wandered over to the reception desk a good 10 minutes after we arrived couldn't even provide a business card. The atmosphere lends a sense of being miles from the nearest civilisation, but all of the beaches, including Tonsai, are no more than a 20 minute walk away. Railay Cabana is an especially good choice for long-term budget stays somewhere other than Tonsai.
