Oasis towers atop a hill around 200 metres behind the village to afford sea and sunset views from a treehouse along with quality bungalows peppered into the forest. It’s easily our favourite option in Lonely Beach for less than 1,000 baht.




Available with fan in small log cabins and air-con in larger concrete villa-type rooms, the bungalows are spaced far apart amid dense foliage, some with porches almost completely hidden by all of the palms and branches. The priciest air-con rooms sit all the way at the top of the hill and bag you sea views from your porch furnished with hammocks and wooden chairs.

The cheaper bungalows are more inviting than most with mosquito nets draped over comfortable beds, wall-mounted fans, hardwood floors, several windows and cold-water bathrooms sporting open roofs and stonewalls. These also have small safes, an unusual extra in bungalows like these.

Tile-floored air-con rooms also offer good value thanks to vaulted ceilings, spacious bathrooms with partitioned hot-water showers, LCD TVs, fridges and funky patterns on the bedding. Some of these also boast ceiling fans on the porches—right on! These “deluxe bungalows” are all identical but the upper editions with sea views fetch an extra 200 baht per night.

Smart bungalows.

Though Oasis is a long-running bungalow joint, a Dutch couple took over in 2014 and elevated it from “good” to “outstanding”—and we don’t mean “elevation” in only the figurative. New since our last visit, a circular tree house had materialised atop the spacious thatch-roofed restaurant and common area with a pirate flag flying on the roof. Don’t fret if you’re not up to the steep ladder—the view is almost as breathtaking from the main floor.

Free WiFi works in the restaurant and deluxe bungalows, but most likely not in the fan bungalows. On a previous visit we met one of the owners and appreciated her laid-back yet service-minded attitude, and most recently we also had a great experience with a young Thai man at reception. We haven’t tried the food but the restaurant is a popular sundowner venue.

Though you’re looking at a 15-minute walk to the beach, the location is far enough away from the parties to stay reasonably quiet late at night. A bunch of shops, restaurants and bars, including Magic Garden and Margaritaville, are found just down the hill from Oasis in the village.

Oasis’ hillside neighbour is Eden Bungalows, a solid and similarly priced substitute if Oasis is full. In that case you also might consider Kachapura, which has square-shaped fan and air-con bungalows at similar rates on the other side of the main road, closer to the village and its noisy bars. Also on the lane to Oasis is Easy House, an ultra-laid back Thai Rasta spot with its own cheap bungalows and bar.
