Among the disappointing luxury resorts, it's a joy to come across a true budget haven that really gets it right.
In the business for over 30 years, Fantasy Hill Bungalow is set on a steep hill, with a variety of rooms that are much better than you'd expect for the price. All rooms come with balcony and sitting area looking out over the paved courtyard below, which is engulfed in plant life. They also rent three newly built houses that can sleep four to six people and have large verandas out front, complete with dining table and chairs. The one house on-site is spacious, spotlessly clean and has furniture that is a bit outdated yet very comfortable. Cheap breakfasts are also available as is WiFi for a small fee of 50B — all of which add to the reasons why we prefer this hillside bungalow operation to Kata on Sea. If you've got a pack on your back and you know the value of a baht down to the tenth of a cent, you'll head straight here.
