Cozy Bungalow between the beach and Tonsai cliff. The place is perfect for back packing and nature lovers.
Our bungalows are simple but cozy - perfect for backpackers looking for the best price the best price at Tonsai beach/Railay Bay! All bungalows have mosquito nets and a small personal terrace. The huts are 5 min. walk to the beach. They are all located close to the bar if you need anything from our staff, or just want to have a drink and meet other Travellers.
We are situated on Tonsai Beach, directly in front of Tonsai cliff - very popular among climbers! From Krabi towor Aonang beach, take the longtail boat to Tonsai beach . Cross from Railay beach using the mountain path or take the longtail boat. Krabi is reachable from Bangkok and Phuket by plane, ferry or bus. When you get to Tonsai bay, ask anyone for the Chill Out Bar. Tonsai is not big, it is very easy to find us.
Tonsai is the perfect place to climb, or learn to climb as a beginner. Unusual rock formations have caused Tonsai´s popularity amongst climbers in recent years and the Chill Out Bar is directly between the famous Tonsai cliff. Find beginner lessons through a professional agency with good equipment a little further along the beach - we can give you more (email hidden)ere are many other stunning islands within short distance from Tonsai, reached by long tail boat. There are tour shops close to the bar. Islands include: phi phi island, chicken island, poda island, james bond island etc.
Our place is unique because we build everything with love. My husband is an artist and used a lot of wood and everything what mother nature gives us to decorate.
We have a restaurant, where you get Thai and international food, three food stalls with local dishes, one small mini market, a really lovely coffee bar with handmade coffee and a reggae bar where you can enjoy your night live with Dj and live music.
But please understand that it is not much community during low season (June to September).
There are some Restaurants, Bars, Mini markets, Internet Cafe, Tour Shops and Climbing Shops on Tonsai beach..not many but you will get every things you need there.
From Krabi airport you can take a public airport bus or Taxi to "Aonang beach" ( approx. 30-40 min.)and from there take a Longtailboot (10-15 min.) to Tonsai beach. Our Bungalows are on the hill side (main road), 5 min. walk from the beach.
In the Day time you will pay 100 Baht for the longtail boat (one person, one way) but you will pay more after 6:00 pm. I recommend you to come during the day.
In the low season (June to September) / rainy season is often windy in Southern Thailand. You can reach Tonsai Beach only with a long tail boat but sometimes if it's really bad weather, windy and big wave, the boats don't drive to Tonsai for safety reasons...but they will drop you off on Railay beach. You can walk from Railay to Tonsai but you should know that the way is not comfortable! Hiking and climbing over a small hill...or you can walk at low tide down the hill long...but the way is rocky. If you love adventure and don't have "big" luggage, it will be a interesting experience. Otherwise I recommend you to cancel the booking and stay on mainland.
Normally you will pay 100 Baht for the Longtailboot and one boat will take approximately 7-10 people for one way. Sometimes in low season is not enough people who want to take the boat that means the boat will charge you more..maybe 200 or 300 baht for one way!!
Other Things to Note
Please understand that our bungalows are in the Jungle. We recommend you to bring mosquito spray and a small flashlight just in case.
(Tips : The mosquitoes come at sunrise and sunset ... in time either hanging out at the beach or in the hut in mosquitos net)
We moved from the beachfront to the hill side (5 min. walk from the beach) Some reviews are from the old location.!!
We produce power by ourselves with a generator and therefore there is electrics of about 6 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

The (email hidden) was super friendly. The accommodations were somewhat what I expected, my only issues were the busted light and the super cheap to the point were it barely functioned faucet in the sink.
The chill bungalows were such a nice escape from the tourist hustle we have experienced on the rest of the trip. They are very clean and the staff is by far the most friendly we have experienced. If you need a nice retreat, I recommend coming to Tonsai Bay and staying here. Thank you!
The Chillout Bar/Bungalows is a special place that I will definitely come back to next time I'm in Tonsai. Next to the Bungalows there is a restaurant, coffee shop, smoothie place and small market. They also have a great 'chill out' area with pillows next to the bar. Perfect for lounging and reading. The guys that work the bar are so warm and friendly, I throughly enjoyed their entertaining stories.
Know that the bungalows are VERY basic. If you don't like camping you probably won't like the accommodations. For a few nights it was perfect for me.
Chill Out was our first stay in out Thailand trip. We were right back to basic and loved it! The beds are great so we slept really good. The vibe is wonderful and the people are so nice. Great place to stay if you're not afraid for a visiting frog while you shower.
Basic accomodation with good beds. Unfortunately close to loud power generator. Furthermore we had an unexpected suprise when we left, namely having to pay for the last night in cash. This was unclear in our communication. Otherwise Lerrin, whom we never met, responded quick and accurate.
Chillout is on a beautiful setting at the end of the 'main road' in Tonsai.
The bungalows are very, very basic (bring towels!) but quite spacious and the staff, specially Isabelle in reception, are really friendly and welcoming.
The bar has a very lively atmosphere in the evening, music and pretty amazing fire dance performances.
This place is awesome! We thought we were going to be homeless for our first night on tonsai, but then chill out totally had a bungalow for us, and we were even able to stay there for three nights. Chill out also has a bar and lively night scene, which was fun to be around; on the other hand, when we decided it was time to go to bed, we discovered that we really couldn't hear the music at all from our room and were able to sleep peacefully. The bungalows are pretty minimal as far as amenities and eventually we got a little tired of using our outdoor bathroom, but honestly the place is beautiful and we really liked our room. just make sure to bring your own towel, soap, TP, and water if you want to save money because theyre not included with your room, and the local shops are overpriced. This was an awesome place to go unplugged and chil out!!

Since seven years I live with my husband in Krabi. We have two small children and have a family business on Tonsai bay, Railay beach. I'm half Thai-German and had traveled everywhere in the world. Now I have a place at home and would like to give you the opportunity to know my beautiful "home"....Krabi!
Sometime I can't be there and meet all the guest because I have to take care of my two kids. I apologize for that. But my husband and our lovely Team will be there and take care of you during your stay. If you have any questions or need advice or "Tips" about Krabi...please write me an email or just call me. I speak Thai, German and English.
