Hillside retreat

What we say: 4.5 stars

The owners of this isolated hilltop bungalow joint may have sold themselves short by naming it "Garden View" when, in fact, many of the bungalows afford great ocean views as well. Wood bungalows are spread fairly far apart over a forested hilltop with no shortage of tropical flowers. Though simple, rooms are very well-kept and have thoughtful touches like woven bamboo walls, chill spaces on the floors with traditional Thai cushions and ceramic basin sinks in bright, clean bathrooms with hot water. All rooms are spacious and come with desks, comfy beds draped in mosquito nets and great front porches. The manager who showed us around was very relaxed and down to earth, which was refreshing after dealing with often apathetic and/or overly business-minded staffs at many other spots on Railay. WiFi is free in a pleasant restaurant area with sea views. Breakfast is included in high season rates, while coffee and tea are free at any time. The disadvantage, or advantage depending on what you're after, is that Garden View is in a remote locale that's a solid 20 minute huff from either Railay West or Phra Nang Beach, and it's reachable only by a steep staircase. But if you want a great bungalow in peaceful surrounds, Garden View offers outstanding value.
