Hipster style with shaded bungalows
Long Beach, Ko Chang Noi T: (080) 693 8577, (084) 339 5224
Not sure if it was an odd coincidence, but when we arrived at Sunset Bungalows we found virtually all the guests and several staff members to be sporting full body or at least full sleeve tattoos.
In any case, the resort has a distinctly gritty hipster vibe, although it's not an unfriendly spot if you're clean shaven. Large wood and bamboo bungalows are among the best Ko Chang Noi has to offer with plenty of space, big front porches and soft (!) beds. Better yet, they're set back in a shady, cool, wooded area facing the beach. Well maintained paths connect adequately spaced apart bungalows and there are hammocks hanging amongst natural vines throughout the grounds. A comfortable and stylish restaurant faces a great stretch of Long Beach and includes several wooden lounge chairs and a sizeable shelf of books in several languages. There are also some kayaks that may be rented for 60B per day, and a volleyball net on the beach.
