PHI PHI ACCOMMODATION
CHOOSING A HOTEL IN THE HEART OF THE ACTION
Necessarily in the center of Phi Phi Don and even better, at the very heart of the Tonsai village... but in this case, you better have some earplugs and you expect very little sleep, this is where it's hot!
Ao Lo Dalam
brings together some of the most affordable hotels of the island, very close to popular bars and a ten minute walk from Tonsai village.
Larger hotels on Tonsai Bay
may also be a good option for those who like Phi Phi Nightlife (for example, "Phi Phi Island Cabana
" or "Phi Phi Hotel
"). A few minutes walk from the village, they are next to the popular beach bars where tourists dance until late at night by the light of fire juggling on electronic music...

CHOOSING A HOTEL AWAY FROM THE ACTION
Those who like quiet places are spoiled for choice in Phi Phi. Once you move away from the bustling Tonsai Bay, coconut palms and beautiful, unspoilt and isolated beaches await. For example, choose your paradise:
In Long Beach
, a long spit of white sand, south-east of Ton Sai Bay. This is the closest beach to the village.
At Phak Nam Bay, east of the island. Phi Phi Relax Beach Resort
offers isolation and heavenly setting, at low prices.
At Loh Ba Gao, between Long Beach and Laem Tong Beach. Phi Phi Island Village
enjoys an extraordinary setting on this secluded beach.
In the extreme northeast of the island, on the unspoiled beach of Laem Tong. Laem Tong Beach
hosts some of the finest and most luxurious hotels on the island. You'll find restaurants and grocery stores in the small village of Sea Gypsies.
Beware, however: Phi Phi Island is totally prohibited to traffic. These secluded beaches are often accessible only by water taxi
(long tails). Going to Long Beach from Tonsai Village costs 100 Baht (approx 3.30 USD), single fare. To go further, the price is negotiated depending on travel time, from 1500 Baht (approx 50 USD) for 3 hours, 2800 Baht (approx 90 USD) for 6 hours. Long tail boats also travel at night.
CHOOSING THE CHEAPEST HOTEL IN PHI PHI
At Ao Lo Dalam
, a little away from the village and the beach (ten minutes walk). Here, many thai families offer bungalows at unbeatable prices, clinging to the hillside overlooking Tonsai Village.
For example, Phi Phi Viewpoint Ingphu Hotel
offers nice rooms on stilts from 25 USD a night. Maney Resort
offers beautiful log cabins from 27 USD (fee may vary depending on the period of your stay).
Finally, our favorite, the Phi Phi Ivory Hotel
and its 10 design and personalized rooms, starting at 29 USD a night.
