Overpriced fantastic view
Built on a hilltop at the southern end of Ya Nui beach, Nai Ya Beach Bungalows are rustic with a price that does not match.
The 20 wooden bungalows are tiny with thatched, bamboo interiors and individual balconies with enough room to hold only a small chair. The only thing separating the standard and superior bungalows is a mini-fridge that will set you back 200 baht. It was quiet in comparison to the other surrounding properties so this is a good choice if tranquility is what you’re after. We found it to be both friendly and clean. The fantastic view comes at a price — a tough walk up a very steep hill or just a drive. Motorbikes can be rented on-site for 250 baht and the on-site restaurant is open 08:00 till 12:00 only. Laundry services are available. On our visit in February 2015 we were told WiFi was unavailable but that they hoped to have it set up for next season. Nai Ya closes for the off season from May to October.
