When we last stopped by the Cashew Nut, the mother of the family who owns it sat busily cracking open roasted cashews in front of the open-air restaurant.

Seeing us, she shouted back to her son who was tending the fragrant cashew trees that give the otherwise scraggly grounds some ambiance. So we’ve established that the place is aptly named, but should you come for the bungalows or just the cashews? Though bare-bones budget travellers might be better served by Laughing Gecko, which is right next-door, Cashew Nut’s ageing beige concrete fan bungalows offer reasonable value. They appeared clean and are designed with tile floors, a few windows, hot water wet bathrooms and fans mounted on the ceiling over firm beds. Air-con rooms are a little bigger and also come with mini-fridges, though you’ll find better air-con value at Blue Bayou and Noppharat Resort. The Cashew Nut has practically no online presence, not even an email address, and there always seem to be plenty of rooms available for walk-ins. The good-natured family rents out motorbikes and provides tour bookings. They’ll also let you try your hand at cracking open those cashews.
