Ageing hexagonal cottages
This place used to cater almost exclusively to Thai travellers, but a very friendly staff member named Ishmael told us that his excellent English-speaking abilities now make it possible for everyone to stay.
Spacious concrete hexagonal cottages have bamboo siding to make them look a little more "exotic", but inside they’re rather utilitarian and a bit worn down. Still, they all have TVs (though probably no English channels) to go with light blue walls, soft beds, desks and wall-mounted fans in addition to air-con in some rooms. Bathrooms appeared well kept, but come only with cold water. The cottages are spread relatively far apart on a lawn that’s shaded by trees, and most have sea views. While there’s no WiFi, a small restaurant serves tasty Thai food, and some huge sea kayaks beckon guests to embark on an expedition. Prices are negotiable for long stays.
What we were quoted as a walk-in.
