In keeping with its low-key approach, Sonya doesn’t reach out and grab you from its location behind some trees along the main road.

Photo of Sonya Guesthouse
The guesthouse’s main building occupies an old wooden house that’s attractive enough to photograph for its own sake. Chilled out jazz and beats set the mood in the open-air lounge on the ground floor, where travellers play cards or kick back with a book in one of the hammocks. The place has accommodation for everyone from the lowest budget backpacker up to flashpackers seeking a quiet and comfy night’s sleep. Relying on shared bathroom facilities and fans, a mixed dorm is set in an atmospheric second-floor room with high ceilings and mosquito nets draped over soft mattresses that are spaced well apart on a raised wooden platform. Lamps and outlets are shared in the dorm, but a cheap and spacious neighbouring private room has a queen-size bed to go with its own fan and outlets. A walk into the backyard brings you to a cluster of clean and modern fan and air-con concrete bungalows with large hot-water bathrooms, wide windows and comfy beds, but no other extras apart from hammocks on the porch. The young nose-ringed receptionist and other Chuck Taylor donning staff members are laid back and helpful. An on-site restaurant does quality breakfasts, brownies, fresh coffee and Thai food, and the inviting Bulan Cafe is right across the street. It’s an easy three-minute walk to the beach. Add 50 baht for dorms and up to 600 for air-con rooms in December and January.
