Set at the northern end of Thong Nai Pan Yai, right before the rocky headland, Candle Hut Resort is a solid flashpacker option with over-sized bungalows on spacious lawn grounds.

We preferred the wooden bungalows with sliding glass doors to the more luxurious concrete ones, but all the fare here is of a pretty good standard and very generously sized. Balconies have chairs and a hammock on the deck and they're staggered so that many (though not all) get at least a partial beach view.

Oversized rooms.

The more luxurious rooms are tile floored with a floral theme throughout that you'll see on the decorative tiled wall behind the bed, on the brightly coloured pillows and scattered across the bed. Roman blinds are a nice touch for privacy. The older wooden rooms lack the polish of these more luxurious rooms, but they're a good deal cheaper and we thought, the better deal for the money. Rooms are all air-con with hot water bathrooms, minibar and TV.

There is also an imaginative and well-sized free form swimming pool, set back off the beach on the spacious lawn gardens. By the beach, shade trees are strung with comfy string hammocks and the beachside The End Bar and restaurant offers a near-endless cocktail list.

The beach out front of Candle Hut is excellent, though there is a creek that flows out just to the north of here, making for some murky water after heavy rain – in dry season it isn't an issue. Candle Resort should appeal to families who want a bit of space for the kids to run around on and the pool is an absolute sweetener. You're also just a short walk back into the village for more eating options. If you're looking for something a bit more traditionally styled, Dreamland is just down the beach from here and is also a popular one with families.
