Payung Guesthouse & Chalets Cherating Reviews
Charming chalets with great staff Jun 11, 2013
This place in Cherating offers chalets of varying size and with somewhat different facilities. I stayed in a chalet with a queen size bed and I had my own bathroom. There was also an open closet and a table with a fan. Outside was a table and two chairs. The bed had a mosquito net, but this had quite a lot of holes in it. The walls were stained wood, and it got a bit dark inside, however, there was enough light in the ceiling and by the bed.
The bathroom had a toilet, small sink, shower and a little mirror. Soap and toilet paper was provided.
The chalets are situated in a nice garden area, and the river flows by at the edge of the area. Tea and coffee is available all day, and you can refill your water bottle for a few cents. There is a bathroom that guests can use after checking out.
Next to the guesthouse is a laundry and a selection of eateries. There is also a bar, Bali, and a karaoke place next door, where they offer drinks until the early hours. During weekends and events they have a live band. The place can be a bit loud, so ear plugs can be a friend if you are a light sleeper.
Payung Guesthouse has great staff, and they organise various tours like turtle nesting watching and fireflies tour. They will book your bus for you and take you to the bus stop to make sure that you get on the right one, as it is just a stop along the road and no bus station. One of the evenings when I was there, the owner of the hostel took me and a german couple to a restaurant in Kemaman to try local fish.
