Why Not Bungalows


Why Not Bungalows is a small bungalow resort a short distance from the northern beach in Mae Haad. It is located on a hill overlooking the sea and reached via a dirt track. There are both cheap fan bungalows as well as air-con bungalows available for rent.

This is very much an 'old-skool' accommdation option. A place where you turn up and get a bungalow. They don't bother with online booking.


Why Not Bungalows has a small collection of seaview bungalows on a hill overlooking northern beach. This is a typical bungalow resort that use to be all over the island in the 90s and early 2000s, geared to backpackers looking for a cheap bungalow. They offer the basics at a good price. Although online booking is not available, if you turn up and take a bungalow for 7 days or longer you should get a 10% discount.

There are 3 types of bungalow available for rent:

Fan bungalow - 400 - 800 THB
Fan hot water sea view bungalow – 800 THB
2 Bed air -con, hot water, sea view – 1,000 to 1,400 THB

The cheapest bungalow has a fan, bathroom with cold water shower and balcony. For an extra 400 Thai Baht you get a bigger bungalow with seaview and hot water shower. The other option is the air-con bungalow that has 2 beds and a hot water shower.

The bungalows are comfortable but basic. Not for those looking for a pampered luxury experience.
