Candle hut The name of the place is: candle hut resort, so guys is it not a resort and this is the main problem. It is all about expectation. If u calls yourself a resort than treat your customers as in a resort, it is much closer to a spacious guesthouse. Poor maintenance, beach chairs are rotten rusty and broken.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the sea view villa. The room itself was very nice and spacious with a gorgeous outdoor shower. There were some large spaces under doors which allowed a cockroach to sneak in. So we had to shove towels under all the doors. The beach is amazing and beautiful, quiet and great for swimming. The...

I spent 7 nights at Candle Hut Resort in a bungalows. The room is simple but the view is exceptional and at night we can hear the noise of the waves. The fact to have an hamac on the balcony is nice but it should put some long chairs also. Windows should be cleaned and the curtains. The beach is... More

Stayed for just a few nights and it was nice enough....but found it to be overpriced in comparison to other locations in Koh Phangan. We were rather disappointed in the lack of friendliness of the restaurant staff and the need of TLC in the bungalow. The location and view and layout of the bungalows is great, but the overall upkeep... More

I've been coming here since 2002 and even though some of the huts are getting worn out it is still a great place to stay! I stayed in the older bamboo huts and the prices are much higher than a few years ago but the staff is still breast and the restaurant is still my favourite on the beach! It... More

Stayed one week on 111 banglow right in front of the beach and it was perfect, pretty cheap, the swimming pool was clean and the room was simple but with the ocean and the moon from the bed, simple is perfect!

I brought 70 people here for my wedding and we all had the most amazing time. Naklop and Noo were amazingly nice and helpful for the year leading up to the event. They went far above and beyond to make the trip amazing for us and all our guests. This isn't a 5-star resort but it's clean, nice, and friendly.... More
