A special place you'll never want to leave

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Nov 2012
Sabai Sabai is something more than just accommodation. As a place to lay your head it is comfortable and unique as the beachfront bungalows are made inviting through decor from many different countries in keeping with the bungalow's themed name.

But what I think makes Sabai Sabai really great is the sense of community that James, Jay and Jam all encourage. With meals under the lanterns and stars or with a cocktail in hand at their circular driftwood bar, Sabai Sabai attracts a lot of lovely and interesting people including visitors who return year after year; those who choose to stay for several months; as well as locals and ex pats who choose to hang out in their comfortable bar and listen to a variety of music.

So whether you chance upon one of Sabai's popular beach parties or just find peaceful solitude in 'Africa's' hammock, it will definitely make your experience on Koh Phayam a memorable one and you will no doubt return again and again like I do!

Not to mention that Koh Phayam is one of the most beautiful places in Thailand, Sabai Sabai is definetly the best place to stay when you get there.

Very nice and lovingly designed bungalows for reasonable prices at a really beautiful beach. But not only the bungalows are adorable, also the surrounding is really nice. The owners are absolutely helpful and friendly and make this place really special.

We have been there in low season and could watch them preparing sabai sabai for the high season. Unfortunately we didn´t see the completion of the beach bar but i guess it will be amazing. And anyway one of so many reasons to come back.

I can highly recommend this place to everyone who´s going to Koh Phayam. But make sure you book in advance as already in low season most of the bungalows were occupied.

All the best to James, Jay and Jam

We´ll be back for sure

My partener and I travelled pretty extensively around the islands of Thailand and when we arrived at Sabi Sabi, Koh Phayam we knew we had found our little slice of paradise.
Everything about Sabi Sabi is perfect, from the chilled out vibe, the many little areas to kick back and read a book, the beautiful beach and the amazing owners who will pull a stool up to the bar and have a drink with you.
The rooms are great, they are your basic Thai style bungalows but are done out beautifully inside, there is nothing better than waking up at Sabi Sabi and hearing the waves lapping onto the shore.
The island itself is an amazing place to go and get lost and spend time just chilling out, but there is also a pretty awesome vibe at night with loads of amazing little bars to discover, you can definitely party if you want to.
I would whole heartedly recommened Sabi Sabi, there is no way you can spend time there and not fall in love with it.

Room tip: The rooms at the front are amazing but to be honest there isn't a bad room here...

I stayed here for two weeks in a front row bungalow, and loved every moment. The food is great, the location just meters from the sea was heavenly, and sabai sabai itself has a great chilled atmosphere that allows you to just relax and enjoy. I had an accident whilst i was there, and everyone was so helpfull and kind to me, that i still managed to have a great last few days, even if my physical health was not top notch.
Have recomended it to lots of my friends, and will definately be back some day.

Sabai Sabai is the best! I have stayed here twice now and looking forward to going back again soon! Its location is fab - the beach is beautiful, accommodation is really special and the owners are just lovely. Its really chilled out, you can lie in the hammock and sleep or just watch the world go by! I could live here.... it feels like home :-)

Room tip: They are all excellent
