Freedom Hut

Great location, funky atmosphere

What we say: 3.5 stars

This funky bungalow joint with a lively bar is set at the far southern end of Andaman Beach. Here the coastline curves east at a cluster of rocks, creating the sense that you're on a sandy peninsula. Some made of wood, others bamboo and still others almost completely of thatch, the bungalows are spread out in all directions over a wide area. Most are quite spacious and come with partially open-air cold-water bathrooms, fans, firm beds, mosquito nets, several windows, rattan mats and big front porches. Several family bungalows and a treehouse are also available. Freedom Hut added 24-hour electricity in 2013 and now charges a premium to stay here; it's the only such option on southern Andaman Beach. Even so, we couldn't help but feel that the rooms were overpriced compared to other options elsewhere on Jum that also have 24-hour power and WiFi. We saw several families with young kids staying here, which might conflict with the weed-smoking hippies who have been coming here for a while. In short, Freedom Hut still has a laid-back atmosphere but appears to be shooting for a slightly higher-end market, even if the rooms don't quite reflect this. If you want a cheaper hut with a more low-key reggae vibe, head next door to Coco Bungalow.
