Until recently, this operation was one of the only options along this stretch of Mai Khao Beach.
Well, people have caught on and two pricey resorts now hug Mai Khao Beach Bungalows. Don’t worry — the massive building hasn’t altered the hideaway vibe. Due to strong monsoon rains and winds, the family has built new sturdy bungalows, rooms and an enormous concrete restaurant. We miss the entirely bamboo huts and old restaurant but it’s still a great spot. The friendly staff, beautiful beach, library sala and hammocks provide a setting you may find yourself staying in longer than planned. Rates do not include breakfast. Call ahead to arrange airport pick up and in low season contact them beforehand to check they are open as they were closed when we last passed in August 2011.
