New Hut Bungalows
Cheapest place in Lamai
Lamai Ring Road T: (077) 230 437
You will find New Hut Bungalows just past Manathai on the sea side of the road if coming from Chaweng.
A sign on the road points you to walk over a small footbridge, where a stream empties into the sea (surprisingly, it didn’t smell, at least when we stopped by). You cannot miss the brightly coloured A-frame rows of bungalows, freshly painted like candy as part of a much-needed facelift in 2014. They are bunched closely together on the beach, so if privacy is your thing, these are not for you. The fan-cooled rooms are very basic, with just a bed on the floor – two singles or a double – with a mosquito net and a window, but they are cheap. A few rooms also have their own bathroom and air-con. The beachfront restaurant was busy when we were there, and there is also a shop and a free WiFi hotspot. The cheap rooms are worth it for the location but for the price of the air-con rooms you can do better elsewhere.
