More on Ko Pha Ngan

If we weren’t so attached to My Way, Double Duke, set at the southern end of Haad Salad would be our number one pick for a budget bungalow by the beach.

Travelfish says:

These are classic Ko Pha Ngan beach bungalows – a single cloth hammock slung over a wooden deck and frame on concrete posts with rattan and wooden walls and a couple of small boxy windows. The bed is a mattress on a raised platform and the bathroom is out back. The bungalow we were shown had a big minibar on a small wobbly table that made the minibar look even larger given the confines of the bungalow.

Bungalows are staggered back from the beach and the first few have some water views. The wooden beachside restaurant here is surprisingly good – the fried Thai curry we had was almost Burmese (and yes, very oily) and the afternoon happy hour on food makes for a good deal. Staff are friendly and casual.

Double Duke do not have loads of rooms, so if you know when you’re going to be on Haad Salad, a reservation is a good idea. Double Duke is located at the southern end of the beach which is quite rocky in close, so the swimming isn’t the best and you’re better off to walk up past the centre of the beach. Other similar places to stay on Haad Salad include My Way and Coral Beach.
