HCPR... This is a place for the traveler, the backpacker, and the adventurous. To some this will not be comfortable, but everything you need is provided and it readily can become "home" when you given it a chance. My bungalow had a mosquito net, fan, hot water, and towels. There is good wifi in the reception area, and the chef for the Indian restaurant is incredible. The reception area is right on the water's edge, and there is a friendly mix of people that keep the place running. Most of the staff are volunteers, traveling for months on end and earning their stay by working. They have incredible stories and a wealth of insight!
Haad Chao Phao is located just a little south of Samma Karuna's, a known yoga venue. It is an easy walk to many cafes, beaches, shops, and bars. There are scooters and laundry services immediately near the entrance. Taxis are also readily available, and reception can call one for you if you'd like.
If you are looking for a nice resort with air conditioning and room service, this is not the place. If you're looking to meet people and have a place to safely store your things between exploration and sleeping, then you'll be happy here!
