At the foot of the amazing Tonsai Limestone cliffs and only a short 5 minutes walk to the beach you can find our cosy Chill Out bungalows. Perfect for back packers wanting authentic back packing accommodation like it used to be

The space

Nestled in the jungle, below the towering limestone cliffs, just 5 minutes from Tonsai beach you will find our Thai style, cosy bungalows. The Chill Out Bungalow is minimally furnished with essential items which include its own bathroom with refreshing cold water shower.
Inside the bungalow you will have a bed, mosquito net and fan. We have also decked the bungalows with their own terrace so you can sit and relax and watch the world go by.
You can submerse yourself in the tranquillity of the tropical jungle but also have peace of mind that should you need anything our reception area and bar is not far away.
Tonsai and neighbouring Railay is famed for its rock climbing which has become increasingly popular in recent years and it is not hard to see why with the towering limestone cliffs. There are many reputable rock climbing shops on both Tonsai and Railay where you can hire equipment and receive tuition.
If rock climbing isn’t your thing then there are still many things to see and do. Diving and snorkelling are very popular in the area and we are also a gate way to many islands, the closest being only half an hour away. If you prefer to stay closer to home then you can explore neighbouring Railay bay with its hidden beaches and lagoons. If you prefer just to relax, then both beaches offer relief from the outside world.
We are situated 5 minutes from Tonsai beach and approximately 15 minute’s walk from Railay bay. Reaching us is very easy, take a long tail boat from Ao nang beach which is the main tourist centre over to TONSAI Beach.
If you take a long tail boat to Railay bay you can still reach us but it requires about a 15 minute walk which is challenging and not recommended if you have a lot of luggage. But for the more adventurous you may enjoy the scenic views along the way.
Krabi town can be reached from anywhere by plane, ferry or bus and from here you can make your onwards journey to us. Tonsai is not a big area so once you arrive at the pier you can ask many people where we are and they will point you in the right direction.
We are not the only bungalows on Tonsai, so what makes us different from the rest you may ask? Well that’s simple! Love! All the buildings have been handcrafted by my husband an artist. All the art works you see have been done with care and attention and all done to make a warm friendly atmosphere that you will experience during your time with us! We are a small community like a family and we welcome anyone to embrace that with us.

Guest access

We have a restaurant on site, and offer Thai and international cuisine, three food stalls with local dishes, one small mini market, a really lovely coffee bar with handmade coffee and a reggae bar where you can while away your evening listening to our house DJ and Live music. We also have a fire show which we receive very good reviews for.
Please understand that during low season it can be very quiet here but there will always be someone to chat with in our friendly bar area. (June to September).

Other things to note

Please understand that our bungalows are in the Jungle so from time to time you may see an uninvited guest or an insect you haven’t seen before. The geckos here are great at pest control and their unusual calls are quite relaxing. Embrace what is around you as it really is a wonder! We also recommend you to bring a good mosquito spray and a small flashlight just in case.
(Tips: The mosquitoes come at sunrise and sunset during this time I’d hang out at the beach or in the huts mosquito net) While we do not supply towels or toilet roll you can obtain these items from reception upon request.

We have now moved from the beachfront to the hill side (5 mins from the beach) to make way for a new resort area which is currently under construction. This does not seem to affect guests much but there may be some additional noise during the day time and also about 50% of the beach will be taken up by the construction when it starts. There is still plenty of room to top up your tan or sit and enjoy the amazing sun sets we have here but if you prefer you can just nip across to neighbouring Railay beach.

Great place with friendly people and awesome vibe. Off the beaten track but very safe and as the name of the place says, very chilled out. Highly recommend if you're into reggae, fire poi, slack lining, climbing, beaches, and general awesomeness!

I had an ok experience first two nights and better experience third night I stayed here. The highlight was really meeting the people outside in the Chillout Bar, which is very hippie and they play great music. My word of advice if to check room first, consider the location the fan is at specially during summer (make sure it points towards your bed) and make sure that you ask if there are any water leaks (specially during raining season) so that you are aware. Also, if you are ok with being outside in a bungalow with a bug net, scheduled availability of electricity/wifi (I think this is ok to get away) and maybe a few bug friends then this is ok. The vibe in the bar is great as are the Thai restaurant, coffee shop and people that run the bar are.

Thank you for your review. When it rains the frogs are really loud it's all part of the jungle experience. They can be heard from everywhere throughout Tonsai. We did change the room for you, as asked and we are sorry you had a leak in your room. All the bungalows are under going maintenance at the moment. We are glad you enjoyed the bar area and had a good time meeting people and enjoying time with our bar staff.

Ideal for people who like adventures. Very friendly and cozy. Beautiful garden. Cute bungalows. Tonsai beach is absolutely amazing and not crowdy. Perfect night life. We choose the hardest way to get there from Railay beach across jungle but it was really fun. You can choose easier way from east Railay beach by walk. Or by long tail boot. I would recommend it to people who are open to meet new people and to see hippie culture there.

Great stay for the price, very chill vibes and awesome people. Location is a bit secluded but still beautiful and easy access to Railay if you time it right with the tides.

Since seven years I live with my husband in Krabi. We have two small children and have a family business on Tonsai bay, Railay beach. I'm half Thai-German and had traveled everywhere in the world. Now I have a place at home and would like to give you the opportunity to know my beautiful "home"....Krabi!
Sometime I can't be there and meet all the guest because I have to take care of my two kids. I apologize for that. But my husband and our lovely Team will be there and take care of you during your stay. If you have any questions or need advice or "Tips" about Krabi...please write me an email or just call me. I speak Thai, German and English.
Thank you
