After two weeks and 6 different hotels in various areas of Thailand, Benjamin's Hut was my favourite. Coincidentally this was also the cheapest place we stayed. Our AC Bungalow was clean, new and lovely and with a comfortable bed. The only negative was that the water pressure was quite poor. The beach itself was nice, but not good for swimming... More

We loved Benjamin's Hut, a family run hotel business in the West of Phangan Island. They brought us and other backpackers with a shuttle to HadRin for Fullmoon. Besides of that we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the yummmmm food, the spacious and luxurious Bungalows and the sea. Next door you can rent scooters to explore the island (helmet - police... More

Lovely family run resort leading down to the beach in sleepy wee Haad Chao Phao. Good food, great service and an amazing view. We stayed in a fan room on the first night and an aircon room for the next two - the rooms felt like they had recently been built, that super clean / fresh feel - good beds,... More

A great place to stay if you are looking for a relaxed place next to the beach and are on a budget, a basic bungalow had everything I needed during my stay. Their motto "simple place for simple people" describes fully what this place is like :-)). The family that run this place are welcoming, nice and very helpful, the... More

Me and my fiance found Benjamin's Hut on trip advisor & booked two months previous to arriving. We both share the love of travel and exploring new places. However this was our first time in Asia so we decided to pre book our first two places of stay for our first week whilst in Thailand, opting for a luxurious first... More

If you book a room for 7 Euros a night you can't expect much. The room itself was ok even though we had some termites in the wall. The staff was very unfriendly and for the 2 requests we had almost convince them to do them. I guess that playing with the phone is more important. They gave us the... More

My girlfriend found this place and I was slightly dubious as it is quite far away from the "busy parts" - but I was 100% happy. It is beautiful and peaceful, with its own private bit of beach. The guys are modern and don't have the usual wear and tear most have. The staff are very helpful and friendly. At... More

My wife and me found Benjamin hut per chance.... and "chance" is the right word as we spent there 6 beautiful days. Friendly owner and staff, clean place, good food and very reasonnable price. Small, simple paradise.For sure we'll go back there some day.
