Larger than most bungalows fetching similar rates, the cheapest huts come with thatch roofs, hardwood floors, mosquito nets draped over firm queen beds, portable fans and raised bamboo platforms with cushions and small tables. Walls are open towards the top, allowing in the breeze along with the geckos. Cold-water bathrooms have partially open ceilings to go with proper sinks and Western flush toilets.

Simple, but well-sized fare.

Some bungalows have attached porches with hammocks, while others come with tables in bamboo salas. A few larger bungalows are made of dark wood, concrete and bamboo, and the best of these is situated right on the beach. You’ll also find six fully enclosed “sea-view” rooms set in the main two-storey building that tend to be darker and noisier due to the attached restaurant. Tents are also available when the bungalows fill up.

The attentive staff offers free WiFi in the restaurant and electricity runs all night and for most of the daytime. The resort boasts a long stretch of beachfront with a bunch of lounge chairs and salas. This part of the beach feels more secluded than central Ao Yai but parties are sometimes held here as well. Sabai Jai, Palm Beach and Big Tree are smaller bungalow operations found nearby; all of these places draw lots of Scandinavian guests.
