Andaman Sunflower Bungalows

Andaman Sunflower Bungalows

Worth seeking out

More on Ko Lanta

We stumbled on Andaman Sunflower in its hidden away location between the beach and the main road at the very end of a research day, and it turned out to be a case of saving something good for last.

Travelfish says:

Set in rows amid a quiet area set 70 metres back from the beach, many of the spacious woven-bamboo bungalows are draped in bougainvillea in the shade of coconut palms, each with a yellow lantern and hammock on the porch.

They’re equipped with portable fans, comfortable mattresses on four-post beds with mozzie nets, hardwood floors and tiled bathrooms with Western flush toilets. Outside you’ll find foot-cleaning hoses and fire extinguishers attached to all front porches—you do not often see the latter on budget bungalows in Thailand. Most huts come with cold-water showers, but a few have hot water.

Two massive, drooling Saint Bernard’s welcomed us before galloping onto the lawn, and the owners hailing from Thailand and Germany take good care of them. There is no direct beach access but you can stroll beside neighbouring Hut Yee Boat, which is another decent choice for a budget hut, and be at the far southern corner of Haad Phra Ae in a few minutes.
