Bamboo Hut

Great views and restaurant

More on Ko Pha Ngan

At the northern end of Haad Yuan you’ll see a wonky wooden walkway snaking around the edge of the boulders then carved steps climbing up and over the stone to Bamboo Hut’s large well placed multi-tier restaurant and jungle bungalows.

Travelfish says:

While the restaurant enjoys arguably the best views over Haad Yuan, the fan-cooled bungalows are mostly in the woods behind it and have no view to speak of. They’re typical Ko Pha Ngan fare, dark wood faced with hammocks slung on the deck along with a couple of wooden chairs. Inside they have double beds, a mosquito net and an open cupboard. Bathrooms are simple but well-kept, with cold water only. Additionally Bamboo offers two rooms on the bamboo path with a sea view, plus two larger rooms to accommodate families or travelling groups.

Bamboo is consistently busy and as it works with a number of yoga retreats and yoga studios, it can be very difficult to get a room here. If you’re not staying here as a part of some yoga retreat or programme beds are offered on a walk-in basis only.

Even if you don’t stay here, it is worth dropping by for a meal at the restaurant – the food is quite good, with very generous servings (we had a pork massaman curry here and it was enormous) and while the service can be very slapdash, the manager is friendly.

As it is so difficult to get in here don’t be surprised if as a walk-in you’re left to look elsewhere – we’d recommend down to the beach at Big Blue, or for the very thrifty, down on the rocks at Eden.
