Top-ranking bungalow spot
The bamboo beach huts at Bee Bee Bungalow stand tall on stilts, each with a different aspect and all strung with multiple hammocks.
Some have floor cushions in cosy lofts beneath the high thatch roofs, while wraparound wooden porches boast two tiers of hang out space in others. Fans join an open design for airflow and nets keep the mozzies at bay. Sitting perhaps 20 to 100 metres off the sand in the shade of palms, they all have a cold-water bathroom attached.
We had a pleasure chatting with an owner as he oversaw the building of a new beachfront treehouse. A small restaurant and bar do a steady trade by the beach, but Bee Bee is more relaxation station than party house. It’s set at the centre of Haad Khlong Khong within walking range of the freestanding bars.
Bee Bee, which is not to be confused with Bee Garden up in Khlong Dao, is often full. This is especially the case since the closure and subsequent move to Haad Phra Ae of Where Else, formerly a Khlong Khong budget institution whose original property was being redeveloped into a new resort in early 2019.
Green Chilli Bungalows is a reasonable alternative to Bee Bee, and some of the beach bars on Khlong Khong rent out a few huts for cheaper.
