    As mentioned to you previously, I was on Koh Kradan recently. There are about 4-5 places to stay. There has been some lively debate on TF about the different places to stay (and some good info on Tezza's site). I suggest you do a search on 'Koh Kradan' - the one that I found useful was called something like 'Where is Wally?". There is also a fair bit of info on Koh Kradan in the travel guide section, including useful accomm reviews.

    Personally, I think Wally's (Lost Paradise) is the best. Other options include include Kradan Resort and Kalume, both of which have had positive and fairly negative reviews. (Tripadvisor.com had some useful info here). There is also an upmarket resort, Seven Seas (or similar) but this will be pricey.

    Personally, I would recommend Wally's. I think of the cheapies, he is the only one that has power running 24 hours. Cold water wwasn't an issue - I would have called it luke warm. The only thing that bugged me slightly is that the the fan bungalows had shared bathroom facilities, but the bathroom was kept quite clean and it actually wasn't a problem.

    You have to get hold of Wally by phone (SMS) rather than email. Check the threads I mentioned above to get the number.

    Sorry, I don't have links and no time to search. I'm connecting via dial-up, and I'm getting ready to rush out the door. But run a search in Travelfish - it's what I did when I needed the info. All the info is here.

    I'm sure the other other resorts have bathrooms, but the reviews and feedback of the accommodation was enough to put me off, hence I chose Lost Paradise. Like I said, I believe it's the best option on Koh Kradan, based on my experience and research.

    busylizzy did you make it to Wally's? How far from the beach? Nice views from any of the bungalows? Good snorkeling?
