“Chill out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

lovely resort with beutiful nice vilas and bungalows on tong nai pan beach.
I was looking for this chill out atmosphere all over koh phangan and only on this beach we have found both quite and beuitiful beach along with chill out music on the pool bar.
the bar resturant is very good and has its own pool to cool your self between courses,
the maintenance of the place is a bit lacking but the staff is excellent.

Room Tip: we had the family rooms which are not yet on the website. it has a seperate room for kids - very con...

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at the Candle Hut resort. We stayed in the family suite which had a large living room/bedroom, a children's room, a standard bathroom and finally a little back patio with a warm shower. The suite and the resort grounds have a really cool vibe to them, not just your standard assortment of bungalows. The kids loved the pool and the bean bags at the restaurant, and the beach was beautiful with soft clean sand. The staff were also very nice and helpful.

Stayed there with my partner & two friends. It is a lovely place with a rustic feel that makes you want to nap in the hammock sipping coconuts all day. Everything is within walking distance, from the convience store and other restaurants. The owners were very welcoming and friendly they even prepared chocolate covered birthday pancakes on the house when they discovered it was our friends birthday!
"The End" bar & restaurant, which is part of the resort was fantastic, probably the best cooks along the entire beach. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and attentive with more than resonable prices. It has a huge range of cocktails, so many we didn't manage to get through them all and a fresh seafood BBQ for dinner.
I would definately return again!

Room Tip: The concrete buildings are prettier and seem more modern inside but they are circled around the pool...

I shared a clean, bright, private bungalow here with three friends.The staff was nice, the pool area was clean, the food was good, and it's right on the beach. Within short walking distance there were several restaurants (they all serve the same stuff, but it was nice to be able to walk to somewhere new), convenience stores, a post office, and a fun bar. I would definitely recommend this hotel to other travelers.

How could you resist this place??? Away from the throngs of tourists and tacky restaurants on koh Samui this is the Thailand of 10 years ago.

This hotel is at the nicer end of the beach which is better for swimming. We turned up with no booking and got a beautiful beach front room.

Such a nice change Ffrom koh Samui. Great restaurant and bar with reasonable prices. Wifi in my room. Massage next door. Everything you want but cheaper than resorts in koh Samui.

This will be a much shorter review than they deserve. But I'm afraid this would turn out to be a novel if I should write about everything that's good about this place.
Seaview bungalow was great, the beach was great, total paradise!
Best of all were the food and the staff. The food was delicious and always tastefully arranged. Finally, the staff. Me and my girlfriend miss you every day. We'll be sure to return, probably already next year!
This is nr 1 so far for us, after five years of travel in Thailand. (Actually it's nr 2 now, lol, we found a new nr 1 after this place. Can't believe our luck. Look for another of my reviews to find out the new nr 1...)
