Follow the faded Silent Bungalows sign from the Ring Road down a dirt road and past water buffalo, and you'll find this backpackers' dream.
The old-school bungalow-style rooms are small, with the option of either fan or air-con, and all have bathrooms with showers. Other than a bed, there is not much room for anything else. Although slightly rundown,this is a perfect budget place for those wanting a true break from the world, particularly with both sides of this place being vacant land. The staff don't speak much English but are friendly enough. The resort is simple but clean and has character with features such as hammocks and a small pond. WiFi works in the TV lounge and restaurant, which has well-priced Thai and Western food. This resort will satisfy the budget traveller who is looking to chill out under palm trees on a quiet beach, but is not the place if you're out to party. To reach Silent Bungalows, turn towards the beach at the Silent Bungalows sign, which is about 300 metres past Save House Resort, and follow the road for about another 300 metres. It's a long walk from the road, so going by motorbike would be best, though do beware of slippery mud during wet season.
