The Varinda Garden is a very unique resort perched on a hilltop overlooking the ocean and south Lamai Beach, it is a little hard to give an exact description, because it is so many things at once. Over the course of 20 years, the same Thai family has been running the resort, what started out as a few simple huts on Lamai beach developed into a sprawling laid back hill oasis. The multi-level design offers lots different areas to explore, to best sum it up the Varinda Garden Resort is one part hippy counter-culture, one part artistic melange and one part tropical jungle oasis. It’s impossible to walk around it at first without having a smile with the multitude of different little visual aspects and funky decorations all around.

The bungalows are set in a lush tropical garden setting, surrounded in think vegetation and secluded from one and other so you’ll hardly hear or know any other people around. While rustic they are quite cozy. The resort has is a lovely infinity pool area and restaurant offering open view over the bay. Above of which there is a huge, again open view lounge area with hammocks and chairs to relax in. The walk down to Lamai beach takes around 10 minutes, motorbike would be suggested while staying here otherwise it’s 15-20 minutes walk to the beer bar area, coming back at night on foot you need to be extra careful coming up those stairs. Definitely not high end luxury, but very peaceful and unique retreat. Have a look below for the pictures of the room and hotel amenities.
