Cheap and colourful
Pasai beach, Ko Yao Noi T: (089) 240 8326, (087) 299 3522
With its classic bamboo and thatch huts given some extra splashes of colour, Pasai Cottage shows that cheap doesn't have to be cheerless.
The 10 simple yet solidly built fan bungalows stretch back in a row behind the large open-air restaurant with plenty of trees providing some shade in the quiet setting. Each room's equipped with double or twin mosquito-netted beds and not much else, and some have an extra single bed. The tiled private bathroom is clean but the showers lack hot water. Overall we found the staff here friendly and the funky setting convivial for travellers, with the restaurant providing sea views and a central place to meet up. Best to contact them direct to find the best deals, since prices listed online are rather high.
