Photo of Bila Beach Bungalows
Placed over a steep hillside leading down to the beach, the bamboo-and-thatch bungalows sit tangled into the forest like bird’s nests. They come with polished concrete or bamboo floors, fans, firm beds with mosquito nets, large bamboo porches and partially open-air cold-water bathrooms with basin sinks; at least one of them also bags you a sea view from the shower. The value is solid, especially when you consider the private beach.

The place hasn’t changed for years and we’ve long dug the mellow scene created by longhaired Thai owner Tom, who shakes up cocktails and plays bass-heavy beats for guests and walk-in patrons hanging on the spacious seafront bamboo terrace. You’ll also find plentiful beach chairs, hammocks, kayaks, snorkelling gear and a few docile dogs. With a great northwestern outlook to Ko Rawi, this is prime sunset territory as well.

The kitchen whips up tasty Thai food and sandwiches, and you can pop up to nearby Forever Restaurant for some variety. WiFi is free as well. Expect a 15-minute walk to Walking Street—with some hills on the return trip. Bila usually closes for August and September.
