Coco Cottage

Our rating:

Cushy coconut-themed Coco Cottage nails the tropical vibe with style by way of coconut-themed bungalows and a broad thatch-roofed restaurant on the low-key northern stretch of the main beach.

Made of coconut wood with high thatch ceilings and glass doors accessing front decks with loungers, the freestanding bungalows are built amid towering coconut trees just behind a beachside moat. Five price brackets depend mostly on proximity to the beach; we’d go for one of the cheaper rooms at the back of the property rather than a pricier second row edition, as sea views are obstructed from all but the most expensive first-row rooms.

Clean, comfy rooms.

Inside you get a good-quality mattresses raised off varnished wooden floors, backed by bamboo rods and draped in thick mosquito net. Woven bamboo walls stretch up to the high ceilings and there’s also a safe and a day bed with Thai axe pillows. With bamboo showerheads and sinks carved out of sanded tree stumps, the hot-water bathrooms are lovely.

Coco Cottage also boasts one of Ngai’s best restaurants, focusing on Thai food and serving cocktails and espresso under a beautiful pavilion with wood tables and a book exchange. Loungers dot the sandy top of a seawall shaded by casuarina trees out the front, with a wooden footbridge leading over the moat. Staff has been consistently polite and welcoming on all of our visits.

Plenty to read at Coco Cottage.

While Coco is our first choice in this price range, neighbouring Thapwarin Resort is another quality midrange option with similarly helpful staff and smart bamboo-and-concrete villas. For something cheaper you could head to the northernmost resort, The Cliff, for blander air-con concrete rooms set up on the hillside and starting at around 2,500 baht.
