Pa Hin Sai’s large and rustic bungalows stretch for some distance in a single row overlooking glorious Ao Ta Khian.

After a kilometre on a bumpy dirt lane you reach the resort marked by a large restaurant and reception pavilion just off the beach. Just beyond it sits the first of perhaps two-dozen bungalows that were built with plenty of space in between and causing minimal damage to the forest behind—some rooms have trees growing straight through the roofs.

Built of wood, bricks, logs and bamboo rising to high thatched roofs, the rooms are quite spacious and most seem to have originally been designed for Thai families. Firm mattresses and mosquito nets are placed on raised platforms that take up much of the interior space with no other furniture to speak of apart from small closets and drying racks.

Porches only come with benches; the addition of hammocks or loungers would add a lot to these bungalows. All rooms are fan cooled with cheap linoleum floors and hot water in brick-walled bathrooms that are a bit grotty in our experience. The rooms have a lived-in feel, not surprising given that Pa Hin Sai is often full and has been around for quite some time.

While most bungalows are the oversized deals described above, you’ll also find one smaller fan bungalow and one air-con bungalow with concrete walls painted forest-green right in front of the restaurant, where the free WiFi may work. The staffers we noticed seemed friendly but a Thai woman who appeared to be managing the place was not particularly welcoming to us.

Overall we think Pa Hin Sai’s rooms are a bit overpriced for what they offer, but we can’t blame the owners as this is a popular spot that’s not quite like any other on Ko Kut in terms of the setting and room style. We reckon it will suffice for non-fussy flashpackers and families after a very quiet getaway.
