Klong Jark Bungalows

Klong Jark Bungalows

Old huts on a marvellous beach

More on Ko Lanta

Klong Jark Bungalows is an old mainstay with continued success despite the rundown rooms—a testament to the service and unforgettable location.

Travelfish says:

Bungalows range from cramped woven-bamboo fan deals to concrete huts sporting bright paintjobs that somehow remind us of punk rock. Holes in mosquito nets and overly grotty bathrooms are a couple of things to watch out for. Beachfront editions are larger and equipped with air-con, but none of these digs are anywhere near fancy.

The beachfront area includes a restaurant and bar with plentiful floor cushions and a reggae theme, although we usually prefer the bar scene at nearby Last Beach. An advantage of Klong Jark Bungalows is the full-service reception offering motorbike rental, tour bookings, taxis and even Pringles and Oreos.

Along with Last Beach Resort, the other option for budgeteers at Khlong Jak is to head slightly inland to one of the sturdy wood-and-concrete huts at Sun Moon Bungalow, arguably a better option for a long stay.
