Classic Thai beach bungalows
23/2 Moo 4, Baan Tha Khao, Ko Yao Noi T: (076) 582733, (081) 676 7726
With ample space along the beach, this place has the feel of an old-school, swing-free-in-your-hammock Thai beach bungalow.
Originally built by the kayaking operator Sea Canoe, the bungalows are under new ownership but still retain a back-to-nature vibe. Each bungalow has private bathrooms with hot water showers and a double bed. Some along the beach have two double beds, perfect for a small gang of travellers or families. A few concrete bungalows with air-con are set behind the main area. This is a particularly beautiful bit of the beach, and judging by the number of languid people hanging around here it's a great spot to unwind and do little but contemplate the changing tides. There's an open-air restaurant attached and a reception desk to organise paddle tours, boat trips and other outings. Rustic but comfy with wonderful views. Recommended.
