With five independent bungalows set among sandalwood and jackfruit trees, in a pretty setting that backs on to a thickly wooded area, Sun Bear is one of the smarter options close to the middle of the village.

Photo of Sun Bear Bungalows
Sun Bear is a five-minute walk from the CBET centre. We were told you can sometimes hear gibbons here but the bird song is lovely whether or not you’re lucky enough to hear a gibbon’s siren call. The bungalows are made from bamboo and have a small bedroom area and bathroom. We kept the windows open to keep the air circulating so that that mosquito net is wholly necessary. The mattress was the most comfortable we enjoyed in the whole week, which was very welcome. The bathroom is a simple wet bathroom — as will be most of the bathrooms you see — but had a western toilet. The water is cold, as pretty much everywhere else, which can make the mornings in December, January and February a little hard to face. Call it character building. The owner was very helpful and spoke excellent English. A small bar/restaurant in the middle of the gardens that make up the greater part of the property serves drinks which you can consume there or on your balcony overlooking the forest behind. A beautiful way to wind down your day.
