Long-standing budget spot
The decent bungalows at Paasook offer a slightly shorter walk to the beach than other options thanks to a location at the far northern corner of the only lane running through Tonsai.
The large and re-painted (again, this time blue!) shacks are spacious and quite inviting, with hardwood floors, fresh sheets on firm mattresses, mosquito nets, fans, several screened windows and large tiled wet bathrooms—cold water only and definitely a critter or two. We’ve always liked these rooms and it’s great to see them being kept up.
The rest of the rooms, set in a couple of small motel-style cement structures, are down at the bottom end of the price scale and they are dungeon like indeed. Either way you’ll be close to roughing it on tree-draped grounds that are removed from the parties and shrouded, also, in various types of flowers.
The same group operates the adjacent Mountain View and Jungle Hut, both of which were closed in June 2018, but expected to reopen. Pop into the office in front of Paasook and the experienced team will sort out a budget room for you, no doubt.
