Having dived long beach at Koh Adang from Koh Lipe, I was anxious to spend the night on this very unspoiled island. You can rent a bungalow for as little as 600 a night at the ranger station, they also have tent options. The bungalow was clean, airy - unexpectedly high ceilings etc. It came with twin beds clean sheets and towels although the mattress is quite hard as previoulsy mentioned by another reviewer Couldn't figure out what it is made of? compacted sawdust was my closest guess. In any event the view from the balcony overlooking the stretch of sea back to Koh Lipe was beautiful, as was the hike up to the viewing point - don't be fooled that you are nearly there... when you get there it says only view point 1 and you have to keep climbing to get to view point 2 and view point 3, but worth it. The restaurant is open air, has a basic thai food menu. I was looking for rice with vegetables through it, but along came white rice with a side of veg in soy sauce. However, at dinner time I ordered fried rice and it was a lovely mix with veg through it. Electricity shuts off around 10p-11p so handy to have a torch with you. Considering the remoteness of this island the facilities are very good, I had expected to rough it more. The monkeys are supposed to be problematic if you leave food lying around, unfortunately having obeyed all the notices I didn't see a single monkey ha! not even on my climb to the top.
By the way I had booked from Koh Lipe and the 600 turned in to 1000 by the time i paid 100 each way for a longtail and 200 for a pass to enter the national park.
