Photo of Mr. Chuoi Bar & Hut
Chuoi’s was one of the first places to open on Ko Phra Thong, and his rustic huts remain the most popular budget choice. Set a good distance from one another about 200 metres from the beach around an unmanicured sandy area, bamboo and wood bungalows are spartan with fully thatched roofs and walls, floor boards with enough space in between them to drop your keys down to the ground below, and very basic cold water bathrooms without sinks, although it’s a relatively hot shower in late afternoon after a sunny day. Firm beds are covered in some rather tattered mosquito nets and rooms include nothing else apart from a line to hang clothes and a single electrical outlet. There are however large open air windows directly over the beds, and small front porches with a chair or mat to sit on. They might not sound like much, but for those who don’t mind roughing it these huts do possess some sort of wild charm. Mr. Chuoi is a welcoming, talkative character, and his restaurant serves memorable home cooked Thai food at reasonable prices while also providing the island’s best atmosphere for a lively scene where it’s easy to chat with other travellers. Mr. Chuoi rents out bicycles and motorbikes, and has proven reliable when it comes to arranging transport to and from the island. Recommended, although you might have to get lucky to find them open during low season (they say they’ll stay open most of this rainy season, but we’ll believe it when we see it).
