Practising 'the art of doing nothing' at Sabai Sabai was an absolute delight. Not only are the grounds super relaxing and comfortable, there are also a couple of other small and secluded beaches nearby that ooze untouched nature. The Burmese staff are brilliant and also great cooks. Everybody vibed together and so many laughs were had. Thanks to everyone, you...

Sabai Sabai Bungalows have been our home for 27 days. A great team with Sarah and James in the lead, has made our stay as a sublime experience. Super cozy restaurant, relaxed and quiet, reasonable prices, excellent service from everyone in The Team and bongalows directly on a beautiful beach. We can highly recommend Sabai Sabai for long stayers as...

The location is a healthy but easily achievable walk from the pier where the ferry lands. Keep in mind that this is a small island and you will not find luxurious accommodations. If you are visiting the island, adjust your expectations accordingly or you may not enjoy yourself. While Sabai Sabai is wonderful for backpackers, many of our fellow guests...

Stayed for a couple of weeks for the third time now, and will keep coming back. Beautiful place, perfect for solo travellers due to the communal vibe and the lovely staff. The only bad thing is having to leave at some point and go back to reality after a few perfect weeks at the beach.

A Typical backpacker place. Good ambience and perfect location. Good place to relax and good restaurants nearby. Comfortable beds and good places to hang out. Very friendly staff who helped me with scooter rental and advice on where to go. Very happy with my stay.

Really looked forward to our stay at Sabai Sabai after looking on the internet at photos and reading the reviews. Unfortunately the reality was so very different. The Bungalow was dark, small and dirty. The bed was hard, the bedding and towels grubby and the mosquito net ineffective due to the holes in it. The forest which was right next...

We booked two nights at sabai sabai and were disappointed with our stay! I usually do not give a review of my stay either good or bad, but this experience needed to be shared ! We had the bungalow close to the main deck area and had the pleasure to try and sleep through two parties held at the bar....

If you want a relaxing place to stay, good vibe and for a good price on Ko Phayam, away from the more popular (and expensive) Long Beach then look no further. We stayed for 5 nights in a beachfront bungalow for 800B per night, and could easily have stayed for longer. Tidy comfortable room, fan, 24-hour electricity, mosquito net, balcony...

Simple accommodation -- and not the best beach --- but we chose to stay here because it looked welcoming and had the social vibe we were looking for...cool places to sit and hang out so it's easy to mix with others. Comfy hammocks everywhere and massage available on the beach. Another plus was the great food - we sampled other...
