I was travelling by myself and had not pre booked accom, but on the boat over from kho toa I met the nice lady that owned the New Hut, it rang a bell with me that I had stayed there before a few years back so booked there and then. She actually drove me to the bungalows on the otherwide of the island. This was where unfortunatlly the hospitality ended!
The lady that seemed to be in charge when the owner was not there was rude to myself and others on many occasions during my 3 day stay. Making a huge scene in frout of the whole resturant when a guest rightfully sent a meal back.
It was impossible to sleep after 7am in the morning as there were large dogs barking, kids screaming and the cleaners sweeping the sand outside your door every morning. Not so much of a chilled beach time.
The Internet was turned off at 11pm, just the time the European travelers can contact friends and family at home. Not helpful and pritty pointless!
I was told to leave the resturant at 10pm even though I had only just bought a beer from them 5 mins earlier as they see shutting, this sent me to the beach to drink my beer by myself rather than meet other travellers.
Dispite this I ate ALL my meals at the restaurant, booked my onward travel and did my washing with them ( which they said would be back that evening and wasn't, then called me a liar when I told them I had handed it to them in the morning and it was my fault that it was t back. The washing was returned next morning but was not ironed and was 10 baht more than if I had gone next door.)
I became really sick on the day I left and was diagnosed by a doctor that I had food poisoning picked up in the last 2 days !!! Great end to a horrible 3 nights and days eating and trying to sleep at new hut.
I feel sorry for the owner in that if she was around a bit more at the new hut rather than on the boat her place would be a great place to stay as location wise and the settings are amazing. Just shame about the rest!
