Jungle Bar and Bungalow
Jungle Bar and Bungalow is a long-running business located in the jungle on the north side of the main Thongsala to Haad Rin Road. It is set in a quiet, leafy jungle location. It is a friendly place with just a few bungalows. The bartender has been making cocktails for more than 17 years and definitely knows his trade. He alledgedly makes the best Long Island Ice Teas on Koh Phangan.
Jungle Bar and Bungalows consists of a shady garden in the jungle with a bar (of course) and 7 bungalows and 2 rooms for rent. One of the bungalows is considerably larger and can sleep 4 people. The fan bungalows have a TV and hot water shower. One of the fan bungalows also has a useful kitchen for those who want to self-cater.
Similarly, the A/C rooms have TV and hot showers, and one has a kitchen area. The big bungalow has 2 double beds.
The accommodation overall is clean and well maintained. It is 'old skool' in the sense that there aren't any attempts at interior design.
The minimum stay requirement for the FMP is 4 nights. You are required to arrive at least 2 days before the party.
What Jungle Bar and Bungalow lack in terms of facilities they make up for in friendliness and willingness to help guests.
Naturally, some guests come primarily for the bar atmosphere and the proximity to the parties in Baan Tai and Haad Rin. The staff also provide good Thai food, laundry service, taxi service and moped hire. This is a possible spot to self-cater for those with dietary requirements or who want to save a bit of money.
