Wonderful little Gumm Lonely Club was named not after Juicy Fruit but rather the owner himself, a laid-back guy offering four budget rooms in a wooden house standing on stilts beside the mangrove-lined canal.

Set at the far western corner of Khlong Phrao Bay and within easy walking distance of the same-named beach, Gumm’s spot appears in an understated way as you stroll around the small fishing village near the canal’s mouth. The wood-floored house opens on one side to a spacious deck filled with hammocks, tables, dream catchers and potted trees hung from mangrove branches. Here you can hop in a kayak for a paddle upstream or out to sea.

Step inside the house to find a large central common room with more hammocks and entrances to the two cheapest rooms relying on shared hot-water bathrooms on the same floor. Small but clean, these have only portable fans and thick mattresses placed over the floors. They may seem overpriced, but at Gumm you’re paying for the common spaces and hospitality as well.

The other two rooms, which were full on our visit, are larger and built directly above the canal with floor-to-ceiling windows letting in sunlight. An occupant we saw lounging on his private deck looked to be in relaxation heaven—feet up and head hidden beneath a hat, book on lap. All rooms have mosquito nets and we reckon those will come in handy here.

Relax by the khlong.

This being a small and intimate property, the experience mainly hinges on the owners and other guests, many of whom are solo travellers sticking around for weeks at a time. Gumm seemed like a great guy in our short encounter. His place really is a “club” of sorts where everyone gets to know each other between their beach naps.

Though it does have road access, Khlong Phrao is a remote beach in the far south of Ko Kut with no non-resort restaurants that we saw. Gumm has a small kitchen and bar for your food, beer and coffee needs. WiFi is free but this is a great place to turn your devices off for a week or three.
