The small Bulon Hill Resort has a handful of simple but sturdy bungalows set on a tree-lined hill directly behind Bulone Resort and a three-minute stroll from the beach.

Bungalows come in a few sizes, starting with small bamboo huts and going up to spacious wooden editions with metal roofs, including one suitable for families. They all include thick mattresses draped in mosquito nets and raised off hardwood floors along with portable fans and bucket-flush Western toilets in bright bathrooms with cold water. Electricity runs all night long and bamboo chairs and tables are set out on the porches.

Various size bungalows are on offer but all have fairly similar interiors.

The bungalows are squeezed in close together behind a Thai-Western restaurant and common pavilion, where the free WiFi should work. We think the similarly priced bungalows at Marina Resort are more atmospheric, but Bulon Hill’s rooms are just as comfy for less cash. They also have much narrower gaps in floorboards, though you won’t find screens on windows with wooden shutters.

The Thai/German-run resort has a mellow vibe and we like the hidden-away feel despite the close proximity to Bulon’s best beach. It’s also one of the only places on Bulon with a functioning website and email address. To find it, look for the sign pointing uphill as you leave Bulone Resort heading inland.
