With over 25 years in the trade, Mai Pen Rai Bungalows dominate the beach at Haad Sadet and with several rooms to choose from, this is the most popular choice on the beach.
The rooms range from rather rustic, lumpy bed affairs through to larger beachfront rooms with modern stone-finished bathrooms, bamboo-posted four-poster beds with glass fronted doors and a great outlook over the beach. All bungalows are cold water only and fan cooled. Solid balconies have been designed with a view to lazing away the afternoon. Some of the rooms are a bit of a hike and you might have to cross a bridge which may be partially-located under the water (depending on the tide) to reach them. The restaurant offers a wide selection of food – even their own special "Mai Pen Rai" curry, which is a bit of a cross between yellow and green curry. They also do a popular BBQ -- all are welcome. Consider the rates to be extremely negotiable, particularly for stays of over a day or so.
