Sweet base for exploring

More on Ko Pha Ngan

The friendly owner of Suan Inn serves up good-value bungalows strategically located within a 10-minute walk of downtown Thong Sala and a few hundred metres from a pretty stretch of Ao Nai Wok.

Travelfish says:

Lined up in a casual row beneath umbrella trees, the backpacker-style fan bungalows are made of dark wood and concrete and come with two screened windows, basic wet bathrooms with bucket-flush toilets, comfortable beds with proper blankets and a few extras that we wouldn’t expect for the price: TVs, fridges and hot-water showers. These are spacious and well kept, offering a lot more than your typical 500-baht bungalow on Ko Pha Ngan.

Air-con rooms are also excellent, with two large rooms configured into each of a few polished concrete buildings fronted by wide porches with dining tables on each side. These even bag you a shared kitchen with stove and dishes and available to guests of both rooms, making Suan Inn a great choice if you’re hanging around long-term or otherwise like to cook.

The helpful owner offers free use of a bicycle, free WiFi and home-cooked meals in a small pavilion up front. While there’s no direct beach access, you can walk a couple of minutes down a sandy lane to reach the beach. The location is convenient for exploring Ko Pha Ngan’s west coast and returning to enjoy Thong Sala’s abundant eating options in the evenings. Suan Inn has inconspicuous frontage and can appear closed at first glance – wander towards the pavilion and give a shout if you don’t see anyone at first.
