Spend the night in a Similan Island Bungalow 

 

There are currently only bungalows available on Similan Island #4, which is the headquarters of the National Park. There are two kinds of bungalows, the expensive view bungalows and the more pedestrian ones with shared bathrooms. 

 

 

For the discerning traveler we might recommend staying on the mainland and only visiting for the day. The bungalows are simple and offer basic amenities. The Air-con bungalows do offer a very nice view of the Similan Sunsets. 

 

For the diver, staying on the boats or the mainland is a better choice. 

 

There are facilities on Island #4. A restaurant serves food until 21:00. The area bathrooms with showers available all night. Most nights the generators are turned off at 22:00. There is a gift shop with simple souvenirs and a small reading room attached. 

Currently the bungalows are 2000 Baht a night for the "luxury" and 100 baht a night for the fan cooled bungalows.

 

Now to book these bungalows you have two choices....with Khao Lak Life (they do charge a booking fee) or you can try to do it directly with the National Park. It is not the easiest process, bordering on insane. If you book with us, we actually just drive down to the mainland headquarters and do it in person (thus the fee).

Below is the qoute and links to the government website....
