Candle Hut Resort

Candle Hut Resort is located at the northern end of Thong Nai Pan Yai beach. It is a mid-range resort with 40 bungalows for rent. The cheaper bungalows are wooden and the more expensive concrete with folding glass doors. The pictures of Candle Hut Resort shown on promotional literature and on the internet have been 'beautified' digitally. It is a nice resort, but not as glamorous as you might be led to believe. The pictures above are real, and have not been tampered with.


The accommodation varies from cheaper wooden bungalows to more expensive villas. Except for the cheaper woodern bungalows all the accommodation comes with air-con, TV, mini-bar and open-air bath. You can choose a bungalow with one or two double beds. Bungalows with two double beds can accommodate 4 people.


The beachfront pool villas represent excellent value (2,800 THB - 4,500 THB). There is a big communal pool. In 2013 the bar / restaurant was re-vamped and is now the stylish 'End Bar and Restaurant'.


The resort rents out kayaks and can arrange fishing trips. Candle Hut Resort also offers money exchange services and Thai massage to their guests. There is internet but no wi-fi. A safety box is available at the reception.


There is a minimum stay of 3 nights for the Full Moon Party. All rates are inclusive of tax and include a free breakfast.
