This place is the only resort in the middle of the rocky section of the beach and it's not an ideal spot for swimming, though the views from the balconies are lovely if you just want to chill in a hammock most of the time.

Photo of Contact Bungalows You can get to the swimmable sections of Ao Kwai by walking and clambering over the rocks (roughly 10 minutes either way) though it's difficult to get to the northern part of the beach at high tide. The steps down to the beach from this resort are not well maintained or easy to negotiate so this is not somewhere for people with mobility issues. The bungalows have a sort of in-the-jungle feel and are quite pleasant but are perhaps a little overpriced for Ko Phayam considering the lack of a good beach. Two new bungalows were under construction when we visited. Access is by a dirt track opposite T&T bungalows and minimarket on the road to the northern part of Ao Kwai. The place feels isolated but is in fact the closest beach resort to a convenience store at this end of the island. Electricity runs 18:00-23:00, there's no internet and the phone signal can be temperamental.
