Bamboo Huts Koh Phangan – FAQ
Is the bungalow private or shared? Can I share if I choose to?
Each bungalow at the Bamboo Huts has a double bed with fan, and a private bathroom with cool-water showers. The huts can be shared between friends or partners, however please be advised that space is intimate and intended for single occupancy. At this time, there is no extra cost for sharing a bungalow.
Can I arrive early / extend my stay?
Depending on availability you may be able to extend your stay once you are here. You can speak directly with the Bamboo Huts staff about this once you are here. We also have the capacity to book an extra Saturday night for you before or after your retreat. Most accommodation in this area is first-come first-serve, and do not accept advance bookings
How can I upgrade my accommodation?
At this time, Pure Flow Yoga is able to book accommodation with Bamboo Huts exclusively. Pure Flow Yoga offers a Simple Yoga package in which you book your own accommodation and otherwise participate fully in the retreat program.
I hear there are parties on Saturday nights, what do I need to know?
For those of you arriving early on Saturday, or staying the weekend, please be aware that there is a all-night party at Eden Garden. Our magical location attracts Yogis and parti-goers alike. We recommend bringing earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
How basic is basic? Can you tell me about the bathrooms?
We have a small number of individual bungalows with private bathrooms that we can book through Bamboo Huts, a beautiful and rustic budget option very near to the studio. Like most of the budget accommodations in this area, Bamboo Huts has 24-hour electricity, bucket flush toilets and cool water showers, which is much nicer than it sounds! When you arrive here and realise that you are on tropical paradise island, footsteps to the beach and living the simple lifestyle that yogis recommend, you will likely begin to realise that zen-like simplicity offers so much more than you could ever imagine :). Each bungalow also includes a veranda with hammock for your maximum chilling pleasure.
