The wooden bungalows were set up with plenty of space between them, with those in the second row enjoying largely unobstructed sea views from big porches with hammocks and chairs. Rooms are available in two sizes and made mainly of wood, with bucket-flush toilets in the large tile bathrooms. Several windows allow the sea breeze to blow over decent beds with mosquito nets. The two rooms that we checked out both smelled fresh.

Comfortable inside too.

Chang Thong has one of the more convenient locations of any place to stay on the island, with easy access to a couple of beach bars, Minimart and the lane that cuts inland to the village. It makes for a good, central base if you’re doing day hikes around the island. The owner is an older Thai woman who has always been quick to show us rooms and seems like a good host.

The staff at nearby Sabai Jai seemed more jaded but they offer similar bungalows stretching up a wooded hillside with a more private feel.
