The Bungalow Scene on Phuket:
give Phuket Flavor

Though there is a well established, and rapidly growing five-star resort scene on Phuket , you can still find the odd bungalow resort tucked away here and there - and a few of the newer resorts still maintain a selection of bungalows.

Baan Krating Jungle Beach

 The resort shown here  - has bungalows sitting on a bluff overlooking Ao Sane Beach - and Nai Harn Beach.  Some say the best snorkeling on the island is here.

You'll never find this place unless you drive through the parking lot of the Yacht Club, and past on a small road - you'll think you are going to the service entrance, but stay on the road and you will get there.

The resort has a small beach all to itself, set in a quiet and secluded area.  If you seek a wider variety of restaurants and a longer beach to walk on - go along the road and walk back through the Yacht Club to a series of small restaurants you saw on the drive in.  Nai Harn Beach is just past there with even more food vendors.  This area is near the "Phrom Thep Cape Loop" on the Best Drives web pages.

The drive to Patong Beach for night life fans - will be about 35 minutes.

Andaman Bang Tao Bay Resort

This is an unusual absolute beachfront resort - difficult to find on the island anymore.

This small resort has an excellent restaurant.  It sits right on Bang Tao Beach - with just a few bungalows - but you'll find it to be quite a sweet setting.  You'll feel like you found a secret few people know of.  Sorry, but even the photos on their photos page don't quite show you how nice this place is.  The resort was a bit beat up after the tsunami of 2005, but is completely rebuilt now.  Bang Tao Beach is my favorite - learn more about it on the favorite beach page on this website. 


Bungalows were the original accommodations of Phuket.  Many of us, the first time we visited, stayed in bungalows near the sea.  There are fewer these days - particularly after the tsunami of 2005 - but they can still be found - and add a flavor to Phuket that is unmistakable.  They are my preferred place to stay - you might enjoy them too.
