I much prefer staying in Haad Rin. Baan Tai and Baan Kai are okay to fall back on though, if you turned up at the last minute and all the cheap places in Haad Rin were full.

Basically it's just handy being in Haad Rin if you're out on a night-time down the beach knowing you can pop back to your room whenever you want.

Hi there,

I went to a FMP last year and stayed at Stonewall Bungalows in Haad Rin. We hadn't booked anything in advance when we arrived two days before the party and Stonewall turned out to be a great choice. It's about a 10 minute walk up the hill from the main beach (for the last bit they have an elevator, so no worries ;)) yet far enough away to get some sleep (if you're intending to stay near the beach it will be VERY noisy!).
On top of that the owners are super sweet and friendly, bungalows are clean and cozy and they keep your valuables in a safe for you. Also, from the veranda you have the best view ever and you can get pancakes and fruit for breakfast !!!

All this said, I heard lots of stories from people who didn't have accomodation in Haad Rin and had to go back to other villages by TukTuk or with the scooter at night. Not only it was a bit of a hassle for them, but also it was extremely dangerous, because the roads are really windy and people drive intoxicated. So definitely would advice you to keep that in mind.

Another option instead of booking by internet could be to book by phone. That way you might be able to book at one of the cheaper places.

The travelfish website has most of the phone numbers for the resorts in Haad Rin.
