More on Ko Lanta

Blue Sky remains our preferred bungalow joint in Haad Phra Ae’s northern backpacker village thanks to the sturdy huts and a position that’s further removed from the bars than similar options.

Travelfish says:

Set in two rows on either side of a sandy path that leads straight to the beach, stilted fan bungalows have high ceilings, woven bamboo walls, hardwood floors, comfy beds with good linens and mozzie nets, and basic cold-water bathrooms. You also get a doorstep waterspout to keep sand out of the hammock.

The bungalows are a tad better than others we’ve checked out amid the clutch of small bungalow joints in the village, beating the smaller hexagon-shaped huts at nearby Somewhere Else by more than a hair. While that place and the Funky Fish both have large and lively bars and restaurants, Blue Sky is mainly a bungalow spot tucked behind a small beach bar with a billiards table.

Blue Sky also has a few air-con rooms with hot water set in a longhouse to go with some newer, utilitarian concrete rooms set closest to the beach. Somewhere Else would be our second choice in this vicinity, but you could also head inland to cheaper places like Ozone and Whalecome, or go for one of the Funky Fish’s dark, damp and dirt-cheap concrete huts.
