Its gonna be quick post, as I'm busy with Tree Owners Club, holy trees & plants on Koh Phangan and possibility of translation of our new Rudraksha Life.
Changes-changes all the way, but some areas still hard and slowly accept the development, this is Haad Yao beach of the east side of the island. Years-years ago, in a times of party-boom, few attempts to arrange one were failed due to the heavy rains and strong winds. Couple of resorts on a rock (Than Prapard) and behind (Kung Bungalow) not far from Haad Yao also disappears now,as their owners moved to live closer to the town. Then it was a time of something new, and "Lost Paradise" bungalow represents that era - simple bamboo bungalows next to the beach, with electricity few hours/daily from generator - real paradise don't require much.
Its became really "Lost Paradise" in a rainy season, when no car and no boats can come to Haad Yao - sometimes its lasts for weeks. As I see by my left eagle-eye, there are no reasons to expect decent road to here which will last more than part of season, as this serious road obviously will destroy half of the jungle nearby - that jungle belongs to National Park and highly protected by army men, equipped with military vehicles & guns (no roses). The boat transfer also has a limitations with time and season, however good speedboat should works fine all the year.
For last few visits we noticed the construction of something big at the right side of the beach, but the feeling was that the place delaying its opening too - its lasts for years, "maybe Haad Yao East don't want to be 1 more tourist place at the divine island?!" - we heard here. Now I feel its good to share contacts of "Lost Paradise" bungalow, as its hard to get from out-world I heard.
But that time we come to see the house at the rock on a left side of Haad Yao - this is one of the most amazing spots on the whole East of the world, hidden gem to meet the Moon- & star-rise, and Sunrise as well. Its doesn't has a name, but has 3 floors and hammock, 5 rooms needs to be finished plus more land to create more facilities or accommodation. Own water source. This property is available for rent now - please request only with serious intentions!
