Jungle Garden’s dozen bungalows with fan and air-con are a good fit for backpackers looking to save cash in low-key Bailan village.

Identical apart from your choice of cooling apparatus, the attractive wood and woven-bamboo bungalows with thatch roofs are comfier than most. They each come with a soft queen bed raised off hardwood floors, wall-mounted fan, free WiFi and large bathrooms with hot-water showers behind brushed concrete partitions. Out front you get bamboo tables and benches on porches that often turn into meeting points for travellers.

The bungalow that we stayed in was well kept—not surprising after seeing cleaning staff work hard every day. Bathroom walls have a small open space at the top so expect some geckos inside the bungalow, especially if you forget to shut the bathroom door. The stilted huts stand close to one another on both sides of a small lawn—no direct access to the seacoast but with a convenient location off the main road in Bailan village.

Jungle Garden is a small property run by a young Thai/German couple who are a pleasure to be around. They live in the front house with their little boy and a couple of sweet dogs that may greet you at the reception porch.

Rooms are clean and well kept within.

Up front by the road sits the owners’ second business, Hammock Hut, which sells high-quality hammocks made by hill-tribe people of Thailand. Jungle Garden also runs a small cafe serving breakfast and fresh coffee—a good place to lie on a hammock or floor cushion and do some reading.

Budget travellers should also consider Elephant Bay Resort, and if both that and Jungle Garden are full, go for a similarly natural-style bungalow at Tarzan Island Resort across the road. Be careful not to confuse Jungle Garden with Beach Jungle in Lonely Beach, Jungle Mountain in Khlong Kloi, or Jungle View in Khlong Prao.
