Two Rocks has a small collection of blue wood and concrete bungalows peppered around a sandy seaside property with lots of hammocks strung to broad umbrella trees.
Small and well-worn wood bungalows come with with metal roofs, mosquito nets draped over hard beds, a few windows, ceiling mounted fans and bucket-flush toilets in drippy bathrooms with hot-water showers. Concrete bungalows come with choice of fan or air-con, though you’ll find better air-con value at nearby First Villa
Hammocks are strung to the log porches that front all bungalows, some with partial sea views. While one of the concrete rooms that we checked out was a tad musty, the fan-cooled rooms all smelled fresh and we dug the low-key ambiance. It’s the sort of place where we could settle in for a long stay, taking advantage of the convenient location to explore the island before returning to a breezy bungalow to sleep.
Two Rocks is named after the rocky outcrop between Ao Baan Tai and Ao Thong Sala, which hosts a bar and chill space with a bunch of hammocks and floor cushions set on a roofed deck with sunset views – worth checking out even if not staying here. Narrow and grainy strips of sand stretch on either side. The staffers were lazing around listening to reggae when we arrived, rising slowly to see what we wanted. Two Rocks also has a sports bar located out on the main road.
