Sunset Beach Bungalows
How about a swinging bungalow?
Lubo Beach, Ko Jum T: (085) 797 1602
In an idyllic setting where North Beach juts out slightly into the sea, the only thing that's not creative about Sunset Beach is the name.
Perched right over the sand, a recently refurbished "swinging bungalow" is literally roped to the coconut trees, while a treehouse bungalow is perched fairly high off the sand. Both of these have mattresses on the floor and rely on a little brick block of cold-water shared bathrooms. The treehouse is accessed by a somewhat daunting ladder -- not a good idea if you plan on drinking a lot. Other fan-cooled bungalows come with private bathrooms and include thatch-roof circular bamboo cottages with large wrap-around porches, and a family bungalow with two floors. The place is run by a very friendly islander named Mr Zen, who can often be found hacking open the green coconuts that fall daily from the abundant trees. There's also the funky two-floor Lubo Bar, which sits perched over the beach with no shortage of red, yellow and green.
