  • If you're looking to escape from it all, this is the place. Nestled under a national park…

  • I loved the remote location and the staff were lovely. This is no luxury spot by any…

    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.

    Such a nice piece of beach

    Location can’t be beat, out bungalow up on a hill overlooking the gulf. So beautiful.

    Einzigartig ist die Lage ganz direkt am Meer, somit auch ziemlich laut. Und in der Bucht ist es nicht so voll wie an anderen Stellen. Das Mobiliar ist Marke Eigenbau: rustikal, haltbar. Die Kehrseite: manchmal nicht mehr so funktional. Insgesamt eine tolle Unterkunft an einem besonderen Ort.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Die Unterkunft ist vom Pier aus in einer 25 minütigen Taxi Fahrt über sehr steile Straßen zu erreichen, daher ist die Bucht sehr abgelegen und es gibt lediglich 2 Restaurants in der Anlage, was aber ausreichend ist. Eines direkt am Strand (coole Musik) und das andere höher gelegen mit atemberaubenden Blick aufs Meer! Der Strand ist traumhaft schön und man fühlt sich wie Robinson.... Die Zimmer genügen etwas unterschiedlich hohen Standards, die neueren mit betonierten Fundament, die älteren nur aus Holz, es gibt Ventilatoren und Moskitonetze. Zum Teil sind die Unterkünfte in die Felsen bzw an den Hang gebaut und über abenteuerliche Wege zu erreichen. Insgesamt ein wunderschöner Platz, den wir nicht vergessen werden.

    The perfect getaway!

    A perfectly secluded bungalow on the rocks just above the ocean! You just get the basics here with no Wifi in the bungalow but an absolutely amazing nature view instead! Mai Pen Rai offers amazing food and especially the Thai food dishes and fried fish dishes are absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is totally laid back, boheme-like and chill as are the staff. Just what I needed! It's also worth mentioning that Mai Pen Rai are very focused on minimising plastic use and only have water in glass bottles, as well as a refill option! The beautiful beach is guarded by a healthy, well-nourished and friendly pack of dogs and a super cute pet pig. All in all it was a true healing experience to be here and I booked another week in one of the beach bungalows on arrival. Thanks a lot, Mai Pen Rai -- I'll be back!

    Autentisk naturoplevelse

    Fantastisk naturoplevelse, havet var bogstavelig talt lige ude foran døren. Bungalows trænger til en opgradering/renovering, specielt badeværelset trænger. Flinkt personale i restauranten. Forskellige retter at vælge imellem, thai food og børneretter til fornuftige priser. Skal besøges for naturoplevelsen ved stranden (og ikke værelset).

    Piękna plaża, ośrodek zostawia mieszane odczucia.

    Po pobycie mam mieszane odczucia. Z jednej strony piękna plaża, ale stan techniczny domku i jego wyposażenia pozostawia trochę do życzenia. Jedzenie w lokalnej restauracji smaczne ale ceny zdecydowanie za wysokie w porównaniu do okolicznych realiów. Na szczęście można pożyczyć skuter i być niezależnym, choć trzeba pamiętać że ośrodek leży naprawdę na uboczu i koszt dojazdu taxi jest wysoki.
