I spent the last three weeks here. It was fab. Beautiful views, sand and sea. You can snorkle just a couple of feet into the sea and there are so many things to see. The restaurant has really good freshly made local food. The monitor lizards were pretty cool too. It is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the...

By coincidence we "stranded" at Mai Pen Rai Bungalows and their lovely Than Sadet beach. Planned were 2 nights. We stayed 7 and would have extended. (A visa run made us leave). We stayed in one of the 2 floor bungalows built in the rocks at the far end to the left facing the sea. The mattresses on the top...

The magical peace and beauty of Thansadet Beach and Mai Pen Rai Bungalows embraces one the minute the sea comes into view through the tall palms as one walks out over the sensational white sand. It is a friendly family run business which caters for their visitors in a relaxed and professional way making them feel welcome and at home....

I was in Mai Pen Rai Bungalows for the 2º time in my life, and like the first one, it was such a pleasure to be there. The staff is amazing, the food from Heaven and the owners are such an amazing family. The beach is so quiet and we could hear all the living Nature around us all night...

I have been dreaming of returning here in years to waking up to blood orange sunrises and at last I have been back. The road is a new addition that i was a bit shocked with but Mai Pen Rai is like a last remnant of the old thai style places of Phangan. Having been here many times but years...

My jaw dropped when I saw the natural lagoon beach in front of me. We had to cross the white sandy beach to the other side, then climbed the rock. Then we had to walk on the rock, passing a low pass that we had to bow lower to pass under the big stone. When I arrive in my bungalow,...

First time at Mai Pen Rai, and I´m totally blown away by the view and surroundings. A beautiful spot on the island. The perfect place to go if you totally want to zone out of your everyday life. I stayed in a bungalow on the beach, just 30m walk on the sand down to the sea. The bungalow was clean,...

I have visited this wonderful place already a few times, it's actually such a beautiful spot, that you would want to keep it all to yourself and at the same time you would like to share it with the whole world.
