Hidden Gem
If you're looking to escape from it all, this is the place. Nestled under a national park, Than Sadet is perfect for swimming and Mai Pen Rai has a great restaurant on the beach and a wide variety of bungalows to choose from. Enjoy!

I loved the remote location and the staff were lovely. This is no luxury spot by any means (no hot water or ac) but this is the spot if you want to get away from it all. Glamping at its finest!

Sleep to waves crashing upon the rocks
Great for those that thrill in nature. Interesting, unique, basic, comfy, spacey beach bungalows in a gorgeous spot. Get some walking done and enjoy the waterfalls. Good thai food menu at restaurant. Would definately go again! Do take mossie repellent though!

I liked the unique location. I was hesitant when purchasing these bungalows for such a cheap price, that they wouldn't deliver on location. But they did. It truly was a bungalow on the rocks - on the rocks of the beach! Fantastic. I enjoyed every minute of my stay. Thank you so much Mai Pen Rai Bungalows. I think they are under rated and should sit at 4 stars.

If you like glamping you’ll love it here
Great location if you want to be away from it all and just chill and relax. We were in a family hut in the rocks. Tricky if you have very small children but fine for us. It’s basic but as I mentioned in the title if you like glamping you’ll love this place. The staff were lovely. Very welcoming and really appreciated it when we tried to speak a tiny bit of Thai. If we stayed longer we would think about renting a jeep to explore more of the island. We would definitely go back.

Beautiful beach
We planned to spend 10 days on this beautiful beach with our family, but unfortunately we didn't enjoy our stay as we hoped. The place describes itself as a family friendly stay, but by far it's not equipped for young children. The play area on the pictures is not function due to a fairly recent landslide and safety is not maintained anywhere really. We travelled with our 4 and 6 yrs old daughters and stayed on the family bungalow on the rocks. It is on the hill side, but we did not mind the walk, however there are no railing by the steps and the drop straight to the sea is massive. This caused a fair amount of tension a we were scared to let the kids walk alone in the dark and they found these restrictions frustrating. The same stands in the bungalow. The upper sleeping area - supposetly for the kids with two single bed - completely unsafe for kids if windows left open as the windows are low and they can easily fall out. As there is no a/c this area with closed windows is unbearable due to the heat even in the night. We found the restaurant on the beach very poor quality and used mainly the hill top restaurant, which had the most amazing views and fantastic food. Still, two restaurants are very limited options if planning to stay longer, especially that no opportunity to buy snacks or ice-cream for kids anywhere. These wouldn't play an issue if we travel as a couple, but with young kids they become important. There is poor wifi everywhere here, but we didn't mind that.
