Relaxed atmosphere and the best authentic Thai food we tasted in Bophut. Would recommend to anybody. You won't be disappointed! We had green curry, tempura calamari, fried rice, mixed salad and pineapple shakes with a dash of vodka in it! Can't beat it...

Staying at Zazen we stumbled on Free House by chance. Had lunch there yesterday, Tom yum soup and spicy red curry. Good thanks! Tonight I tasted their Thai green curry fried rice and it was delicious. Throw in a Penang curry (a+) and it was one of the great meals. Thanks Tony Free-house!

We popped into this simple place on the beach for lunch,while we waited for a Thai massage. Friendly welcome as always in Thailand.
Two spicy soups, Vietnamese spring rolls, Papaya Salad & soft drinks for under £10 with tip. Lots of quality food at good price with a good view.

Stayed here 3 nights in an air conditioned bungalow. The rooms and grounds were clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. It's right on the beach with a restaurant and bar facing it. We ended up eating at the restaurant most of the time because we found that the food was surprisingly better there than some of the restaurants we ate at Chaweng. Wifi only works in the restaurant area.

My only complaint was that there was a sign posted in our bungalow stating not to bring in food to reduce ants and pests and also we would be charged for bringing outside drinks to the beachfront/restaurant area. Also, there were two dogs (not sure if strays or the owners) that would lounge around the restaurant area. It was kind of distracting and unsanitary if you think about it to, to be eating breakfast and having a dog sitting next to you begging for a handout.

Located right on the beach it has large fan room and 3 aircon bungalows. Leaves are swept up every morning . Has a great chef EGG. Massage availible. Located right between 2 of the most expensive places on Samui. Friendly staff. Free WIFI. Very quiet. You'll want to rent a motorbike though as its a bit of a walk to the main road

We went for lunch with friends and the food is fantastic, well priced and really great flavor.
Very relaxed with attentive staff right on the beach with view of the surrounding islands and down the coast of Bophut.
As with most places where the staff's English is their second language. Try ordering food as it should be cooked. it is interesting to try food without the complications of western ordering, ie can I have a curry with no curry as i heard a couple trying to order on the next table. The cooks have a fantastic spin on Thai food. It's that simple. They also do western food but didn't try any.
The entrance is down a small lane then the resort with lovely clean budget style bungalows.
We are retuning next week for a friends birthday as it is one of the less complicated spots on the island. Looking forward to the mango daquaris again.

We stayed 4 nights, 500 baht/ fan bungalow, clean, pretty, comfortable bed, new mosquito net, hot water at bathroom. Each bungalow seems different, some have hammocks on the porch, inside they look cosy, simply decorated with good taste. You wont miss the green as along the alleys the trees are making a beautiful curtains where you can spot squirrels. Resto on the beach, nice deco but most dishes are overpriced. Staff is nice and helpfull. Beach is fine.
For 200 baht/ day you can rent a scooter to travel around the island. Nearby, the Fisherman Village has nothing to do with any fisherman, nor any village, is just a bunch of new restos, pubs, bars and shops, full of tourists and high prices. For the cheapest good food you can go on the main road (pad thai at 70 bath, grilled snapper for around 170 bath).

TIP FOR SNORKELLING: take a scooter, go to the south of the island at Thong Tanod, enter the Coconut Villa and at the end of the road you will see a small messy house facing the sea. They do cheap trips: covered boat, 2 pers, 4 hrs - total 1400 baht, you can see 2 islands: Koh Tan for coral reefs and Koh Mudsum for swimming and chill out.

Room Tip: take one with hammock, of course!
