Treehouse Silent Beach

Treehouse Silent Beach

Earthy crunchy, good value

More on Ko Samui

In 2015, the old Silent Beach Bungalows emerged after a major redesign under the new persona, the Treehouse Silent Beach. It offers excellent value as one of the few beachfront resorts on Samui that caters specifically to backpackers.

Travelfish says:

Colourful banners and Northern Thai lanterns join Tibetan prayer flags and bits of Buddhist-inspired wisdom in the beachfront restaurant, where you can chill on a floor cushion while listening to mellow music and munching on a falafel. We reckon that hippies will feel at home here, though it’s also a good option for families or anyone seeking an affordable room by the beach.

Made of wood, bamboo and cement, around 20 multi-coloured bungalows are set close together and come in a few different sizes with choice of fan or air-con. Spacey abstract art and stained blue-and-green glass mingles with orange walls in the pricier rooms. Beds are comfortable and all of the clean bathrooms come with hot-water showers. You also get free WiFi and a porch with hammock.

Treehouse is located towards the east end of Mae Nam Beach and there’s very little around for quite a distance – great if you like isolation but not so good if you tire of the scene and aren’t into renting a car or motorbike, both of which can be arranged at the resort. Otherwise this is a solid option on an island where cheap fan-cooled beach bungalows are hard to come by. It’s a popular spot; do book ahead in high season.
