Mai Pen Rai offers a large variety of bungalows to travelers on different budgets, with Bungalows On The Beach, Bungalows On The River, Bungalows On The Rocks, Wooden Bungalows On The Beach, and also Family Bungalows On The Rocks.

Each bungalow is totally different, not one being the same. All the cabins are artistically and thoughtfully designed to harmoniously blend in with the beautiful surroundings, incorporating the large granite boulders into the design of the bungalows.


The paths up through the rocks and through the famous little cave have been re-landscaped artistically to fit in with the rocks to provide a beautiful and scenic route to your room. The rooms themselves have more special touches with the sense of the traveling spirit always in mind, making your Mai Pen Rai Experience something even more special and memorable.

Than Sadet Bay

This corner of Than Sadet has a unique, simple rustic feeling, that of the old Koh Phangan and is surrounded by wild jungle behind and a coast line of rugged wildness – ideal for treks and boat trips to the neighbouring beaches on the east coast of Koh Phangan.

What To Do
Where To Go

Here the famous Than Sadet river meanders down the mountainside through the dense jungle and exits into the sea beside MaiPenRai restaurant. The river and waterfalls once visited by their Majesties King V, VII and IX, who carved their initials on the huge granite rocks that grace this river, have now become one of the most tranquil and popular places on the island to visit and relax. Parts of Thansadet beach and Waterfall due to these royal connections are National Park land. A short walk across the bridge and over the hill, brings one to the neighbouring smaller beach of Thong Reng, infringed with beautiful palms, and soft white sands.

The atmosphere in Thansadet is still simple, rustic, and slightly bohemian, with the emphasis on keeping in touch with the roots of nature around.

The feeling of ‘old’ Koh Phangan!

This is truly a paradise where nature lovers and artists from all walks of life can come together, and enjoy the peace and serenity of this unique corner of the world. Here one is able to unwind and recharge ones spirit in the seclusion and tranquility of this very special haven.

Due to the fast development of Koh Phangan, this really is a one of a kind place where the pace of life is still as it should be, and the feeling of the ‘old Koh Phangan’ is still present in the atmosphere and feeling of this beach.
