About Mai Pen Rai Bungalows

Welcome to Teep's 'Mai Pen Rai' Bungalows. 'Mai Pen Rai' Bungalows is one of the oldest resorts in Koh Phangan, founded by Teep about 20 years ago. 'Mai Pen Rai' is situated in a tropical paradise infringed with swaying palms and green turquoise waters. 'Mai Pen Rai' which means 'no problem' is as the name implies - the restaurant is easy going with funky and artistic decoration, the ambiance is chilled out and unpretentious. This is the kind of place for those seeking something different, away from the commercial beaches of Koh Phangan and lively night life, this is for those seeking peace and nature in perfect harmony.

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 neighboring smaller beach of Thong Reng, infringed with beautiful palms, and soft white sands.

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 neighboring beaches on the East coast of Ko Pha-ngan. The atmosphere in Thansadet is still simple, rustic, and slightly bohemian, with the emphasis on keeping in touch with the roots of nature around. This can be felt whether sitting in the restaurant, enjoying one’s meal, while a Bharan meanders past in the river, or sitting on the verandah of one’s bungalow where every effort has been made to incorporate the beauty of the surrounding natural features into the design of the rooms.

Mai Pen Rai offers a large variety of bungalows to travelers on different budgets, with a choice of 35 bungalows on the beach, on the river, and 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.

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.

Due to the remote situation of Than Sadet and the factor that it is in National Park territory, government electricity has not reached Than Sadet. This in fact adds to the charm of the place. Power is run by generator and is switched on from 11.00 am until 4.00 pm, and then again 6.00 pm until midnight.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO PAY AT MAI PEN RAI BUNGALOWS WITH A CREDIT CARD, ALL BILLS NEED TO BE SETTLED IN CASH. PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT THAN SADET BEACH IS FAR REMOVED FROM TOWNS, SHOPS AND ATMS, AND THEREFORE IT IS ADVISABLE TO CASH MONEY BEFORE COMING. IF A CUSTOMER REALLY WISHES TO PAY BY CREDIT CARD THEN THEY CAN PAY IN THE MAI PEN RAI OFFICE (THAN SADET TRAVEL) IN THONG SALA, SITUATED BESIDE THE YELLOW CAFÉ.
