French/Thai owned Aow Yai Bungalows was the first bungalow resort built on Ko Phayam and is still a very popular place to stay – it's usually full in high season.
It's one of the bigger resorts and has a large number of reasonably priced bungalows in various styles set in lush grounds dotted with coconut palms and other shade trees. None have direct access onto the sand but the beach can be seen through the tropical pine trees lining the front of the resort. The huts come with en suite bathrooms and all are quite decent.
