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.

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.
