Gotta say, this place exceeded my expectations. It's a cheap 2 star bungalow place right on the beautiful Bophut beach in Samui. We originally booked for 19 nights but had to leave after 10 due to torrential rain, but we enjoyed every moment at Cactus Bungalows regardless of weather. Jeff, the manager, was always very accommodating and was constantly asking...

The Cactus is situated on Bophut Beach. It is a 2* resort with air-con or fan bungalows. We stayed for 8 nights and only paid £80 for the stay. It is very basic, no fridge or wardrobe, etc, but for the price it is clean and comfortable. The staff speak english and the snack bar serves nice food in a...

We didn't stay here, but discovered this fantastic, relaxed bar, with comfy, rustic seating and a laid back vibe... Great elevated views over the sea, ice cold glasses, Chang and more besides - low prices, what more could you ask!! By the end of 10 days we were welcome regulars and also had an easy lazy supper one night which...

The bungalow/restaurant is located on the beach which gives a great view during our dinner. They are specialized in Italian and Thai cooking and the dishes we ordered were excellent. The atmosphere is very friendly, laid-back and refreshingly unpretentious.

Lovely chilled out place serving great food and playing cool laid back tunes. Proper pizza oven too if you fancy a change from Thai food and a good cocktail list. Wish we we stayed there instead of nearby Peace Resort. A little oasis in Bophut.

Cactus is a wonderful place to have dinner with a beach view. Or if you just want a drink. The food is excellent, the staff is very friendly. I recommend the pizzas, Italian style and delicious. Make a reservation during the day as they also have bungalows and it can be busy.

Incredible a place allong a beautiful coast to sleep and eat. We stayed here for four nights in a four person apartment with airco. They also serve great food and even a very good Italian style pizza. You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner or just a quick bite. Prices at very reasonable. The restaurant looks like a small club...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the middle of Bophut Beach. Created 13 years ago and designed by the owner. Still considers itself as a guest house. One of the last old school getaways in Samui. Attractive prices. Great food from traditional Thai to home-made pizza. Cocktail bar (great mojitos) and free pool-table. For the ones who like it smooth and simple. ... more   less
