Koh Samui , Surathani 84330
|Summary of 75 reviews :||
Moonhut bungalow is situated on the beautiful beach of Maenam on the north coast of Koh Samui. All twenty bungalows are in the typical Samui style and built between coconut palms and tropical plants, overlooking the sea. At the Moonhut you have the possibility to enjoy life with pure beach sunbathing and swimming, to take advantage of the watersports on offer, if you like it a bit more active, and to relax after sunset. All bungalows have a balcony and a private bath with hot and cold water, a safe, ceiling fan or air conditioning. The beach bungalows and family bungalows are equipped with a refrigerator. The restaurant is perfectly situated directly on the beach and serves delicious Thai and Western dishes and of course fresh seafood. The nearest village, Maenam is only a short 5 minute walk away.
A Place like a Paradies
We had a very nice stay at Moonhut, will surely return in the future
Very good, efficiently done
This is written from the perspective of a mother of a 15 month old. Moonhut Bungalows is a great little place to stay in Maenam, if you are a couple who want a quiet getaway, of any age. The beach is kept beautifully and you have the restaurant/reception no more than 10m away from you. It is easy enough to get a cab to a different beach if you want more activity but the beach and sea really are lovely just here. Food in the restuarant is quick and pretty good. No childrens options and no small size dishes so its full price rather than some great places we stayed at where they accomodated for children. Breakfast is not included. The young staff that work here are wonderful. Inparticular Sun who was excellent with the baby who formed a real attachment to him. All of the staff are lovely so its such a pity that the owners are so standoffish and occasionally rude. The English owner snarls around as if the world has done him wrong, dont take it personally, he s like that with everybody! Again, as a mother I write this comment, if I were a backpacker it wouldnt faze me but the owners have huskie dogs that are not trained at all. They regularly begged in the restaurant and would come up and into your room and snarl if you tried to get them to leave. They are on face level with children. I LOVE dogs, I did not trust these dogs one bit. The beach: As I said, it is beautiful but there are no umbrellas so no shade away from the sun, again fine for sunbathing, not for kids. And in the shady area there are millions of ants, bitey ones. This review makes Moonhut sound poor. It is not. The accomodation is basic but clean and the staff are lovely. The food is fine and the location briliant. As a backpacker I would give this place a 3.5 out of 5. As a mother I would give it 2. Tip: Dont bother about the beach facing bungalows as only Bungalow one is actually beach facing. (although these are the only ones that have fridges). If you are not worried about teh Fridge ask for B2, you can see the sea from your balcony and its 500 baht cheaper! Oh, if you want internet you have to pay 900 baht for the privillage!!!!
Moonhut is lovely. Not up market, but everything you need. Clean bungalows on the beach, friendly staff, good restaurant. A perfect place for a low cost holiday.
Professional and everything worked
great bungalow on the beach. the staff it s ok, the restaurant is ok but not very tasty, but not expensive. it was like what we hope a little dream. foot in the water just a thing, miss fish and coral on this beach. very quiet, big very clean bungalow, very nice decoration. NICE, NICE, NICE and friendly staff.

you can not go wrong with booking on this site.
This is such a great place !!! we loved it..cool chilling athmospere. the kitchen is also very tasty... the bar could be opened longer ;))
Located right on the beach. Bungalow had very cold water only and a fan (all A/C rooms were booked). Small room, bed very worn out with springs poking out. Staff was not accomodating at all-didn t seem to care about guests. When checking in we asked if we can book an extra day and be out by 6:00 PM and they said they would let us know. We had a later flight out and when we inquired in the early morning they said that they gave the room to someone else. If they were smart they could of let us stay and get the rental income from us and also from a late arrival that evening. Not very good communication with the staff.
My son and I spent 4 days at Moonhut and it truly felt like home. The staff is friendly and accommodating, they arranged taxis, tours and car rental for us and were organized and efficient. My son loved the swing set and there were many other children who passed through for him to play with. Our ocean bungalow was comfortable and clean, but when we switched to a garden bungalow it smelled very musty and had a leaky sink. The food was average but the restaurant was very convenient and we took almost all of our meals there. The beach had a terrific view but was nothing spectacular. It was raked often and the water was pretty clean but the area was small. We did not like the town of Maenam, there was too much traffic and no interesting shops.
Bungalows situated in quiet area of beach. The beach was probably the nicest spot along that stretch. We stayed in a fan bungalow, clean, basic and absolutely fine. Staff cleaned the bungalows and changed the towels every da, a really nice touch. Reception staff very helpful and after having left some items in the hotel at Surat Thani they arranged for these to be delivered to us, with no extra charge. All done with a smile. A good place to relax for a few days. Liked it alot and would go back there.
Very calm area and cozy bungalow in a jungle atmosphere in front of the beach. Friendly and helpful staff. Good food but small portions. Its worth a visit and the price!
Perfect work from Sawadee on every booking we ve made through them. Thanks!
