What Tiger Huts has going for it is location; neighbouring Panviman charges 7,000 baht for the privilege of staying on this wide, silky white sand beach.
The basic wood huts with thatched roofs are dispersed in loose rows on the sand as coconut trees tower overhead. They're quite small and come with fake panel floors, firm beds, mosquito nets, fans, small windows, moldy cold-water bathrooms and small front porches with plastic chairs that have seen better days. We found the huts at neighbouring KP to be a fair bit better, but then, those don't come with private bathrooms. The man who greeted us at Tiger Huts wasn't very friendly, and the beachside restaurant is quite pricey for what you get. It does however have a billiards table and is a definite congregating point for backpackers staying on this part of the island. Walk-ins only.
