This friendly family-run bungalow spot was named "New" because it was the newer of Ko Jum’s two places to stay when it opened way back in 1993.

It has aged gracefully and remains a very friendly spot to forget the world for a while. The cheapest thatch-roof woven bamboo huts are a solid 200-metre walk back from the beach; they’re fairly run down with holes in the mosquito nets and squat toilets in the cold-water bathrooms, but acceptable for those seeking dirt-cheap accommodation. On the plus side, they do have shelves, fans and porches with a couple of chairs. Pricier, larger and newer are a line of tin-roof wooden bungalows set closer to the beach. Electricity comes from a generator that runs only from around 18:00 to 22:00, and the engine can be rather noisy for those staying in the rooms that are furthest back from the beach.
