First of all, I had a first impression with the owner. They gived me all of the information about my room, how to pay, lovely Manicured gardens professionally styled with lots of grass, plants and greenery!
Myself and 2 friends decided to stay at the top end of the island when visiting as we hadn't heard great things about Haad Rin where the main parties were held. When we first arrived our impressions were quite low as you're dropped off at the road side and have to walk down an unkempt pathway with a few dogs loitering around. Once we had hoofed ourselves and our backpacks down to the main entrance we were greeted by the lovely lady owners who checked us in and showed us to our rooms. The bungalows are slightly unfinished and do have quite a few gaps in the roof which allows cockroaches to make their way in (imagine 3 young women tackling a cockroach with nothing but glow sticks, a converse and a can of deodorant. My stomach still hurts from the laughing now) The shower was hot most mornings and we also had a fridge and a mini kitchen which we never used as we ate out every night in places along the beach. The hammock on the porch was lovely to chill out on and we also had a table and chairs so we could all sit together.
The location is fab as you are literally a 2 minute walk to the beach where there are lots of restaurants and bars to choose from and also about a 10 minute walk to the local town where they have shops and a pharmacy.
All in all we loved it here e:)
Notre bungalow : grande superficie, en bois, coin chambre, salle d'eau et un coin cuisine. Grande terrasse avec table et deux chaises, un hamac. Manque cependant de meuble à l'intérieur, obligation de laisser ses affaires dans la valise et par terre. Pour peu de temps, c'est pas grave. Les bungalows se trouvent à une minute de marche de la plage où se trouve le restaurant. Plage jolie, sans plus et pas large. Ce qui laisse peu de place pour se mettre à l'écart des autres et ne pas entendre les conversations. La nourriture du resto est moyenne, facile de trouver mieux. Le coin des bungalows est reposant, il y en a peu (5 ou 6). Bien pour ceux qui restent un bon moment et avec un scooter. Les patrons thaïs ont l'air sympathique et certainement prêts à vous apporter un petit plus au niveau meubles, au moins deux chaises, de la ficelle pour pendre les habits avec quelques cintres. Un ventilateur est suffisant pour la nuit.
We stayed 3 nights in salad grand. It was just perfect. The staff was always ready to give us satisfaction. This is the best place on the wonderfull haad salad. Thanks again for your smile. We will be back for sure
