What we say: 3.5 stars

The oldest and largest bungalow operator on Than Sadet, Mai Pen Rai is very popular among backpackers as well as families with small children. Mai pen rai means never mind or no worries, both of which appropriately convey the relaxed attitude here. The restaurant is Than Sadet's most popular hang-out with its comfortable new-hippy vibe and wide selection of delicious food. Most of Mai Pen Ria's 35 bungalows are found on the southern edge of Haad Sadet, either on the beach or along the small river that flows into the sea, but there are also several set along the sea at the base of the northern cliff. The pricier beachfront bungalows are in the best shape, though all of Mai Pen Rai's huts are clean and spacious. The huts along the river are drafty, which can be nice on hot nights but allows for plenty of insect and reptile activity. Guests will also hear a nightly chorus of cicadas and assorted lizard calls. The low-prices huts also feature worn linens and tattered, yet functional mosquito nets. With a great English-speaking staff, internet access, and a small shop and bookstore, Mai Pen Rai has it all.
