Meeting other travellers couldn’t be easier in the inviting restaurant with long tables that are shared among guests. There’s also a book exchange in the corner if you feel like being antisocial. The huts are stretched out over a large shaded area to the west of the restaurant, with some scattered amid semi-private beaches where signs suggest that you “Enjoy the sounds of nature”. There’s some excellent snorkelling to be done in this area, but the main beach is best avoided at midday due to the influx of daytrippers. It’s oh-so serene once they leave, with a volleyball net and wood platform perched over the water where you can sunbathe or take a dive. The cheapest wooden huts are tiny and have seen better days. These come with padlocks to secure very flimsy doors, a few small windows, rock hard beds (but soft pillows) on raised platforms and small front porches with wooden benches. A bit more cash gets you a much bigger and newer bungalow with wide windows and larger porch in a more private setting. All rooms rely on one of a few blocks of shared cold water bathrooms that aren’t too far from any bungalow. The jovial staff likes to pound Singha beer at Good Feeling during their 16:00 - 17:00 break, making them a little slurry during the dinner rush.
