When my boyfriend and I decided to travel to Thailand, we wanted to experience what Thailand was like before the hordes of tourists came and commercial resorts & hotels dominated the beautiful islands - and we found that at Sai Thong.
If you're looking for a quiet, secluded spot where you have a private beach, beautiful sunsets and can throw a stone into the sea from your bungalow at an affordable price you can't really go wrong here... but the best way to think of it is as 'camping'. We loved the rustic charm, but understandably some may not take to roughing it.
The staff were very friendly and the food was good, if not a bit more pricey than the restaurants in the main part of the island, but consider the extra cost 'peace & quiet tax'. When their Malibu rum ran out (we went through quite a bit of theirs!) they made a special trip just to get some for us, and we treated our selves to many a full body massage with their home-made coconut oil - bliss!
Out of out three week stay in Thailand, this was undoubtably the highlight of our entire stay. For the 5 nights we were there, we truly were in paradise.
