Tiew Khao is one of a few small and simple bungalow outfits peppered amid the wooded hills on either side of the inland road that links with the forest trail to Railay.

Half an hour after receiving a warm welcome from one of the older Thai women who runs the place, she was still chatting away while feeding us her own homemade sticky rice banana sweets and boiled pumpkin drizzled in sugar and coconut. Apparently she gives out these treats freely to guests. Perched on stilts and connected by dirt paths over a fairly steep hill, the dark-red woven bamboo bungalows are in good shape, with firm beds raised off wood floors, mosquito nets, moveable fans, porches and tile-floored cold-water bathrooms with bucket-flush toilets. Tiew Khao also has some larger log rooms closer to the dirt road and a small on-site restaurant. Climb up the hill and you’ll probably see some macaques, especially if you bring some of those sweets to share. Open in high season only. No phone number was provided, walk-ins only.
