Kalume Village

Simple huts, great pizza

What we say: 3.5 stars

Run by a group of young Italians, Kalume Village offers a handful of simple bamboo bungalows and larger wood cottages clustered close to one another just off the northern side of the beach. The bamboo editions are well kept but tiny and rudimentary, with thatch roofs, firm mattresses on bamboo floors, cement cold-water bathrooms and tiny porches with hammocks. Directly facing the sea, the wood options are larger and more inviting but similarly Spartan. The value for either room type would be poor on many islands, but on Kradan you should expect to pay more for simple accommodation, and in fact Kalume is often fully booked. We arrived during a rainstorm to find a dozen Italians drinking festively around a table in the beachfront restaurant. The kitchen does pizza and espresso that's worth seeking out even if you're not staying here. Kalume isn't the most efficiently run resort on Ko Kradan, but certainly not a bad choice if you're the sort who can kick back and go with the flow. Power runs only in the evenings. Owners close up and head back to Italy for low season.
