This was one destination that I was quite nervous about. The website said no electricity and huts. As we arrived I knew I had got it wrong, not here long enough! This is paradise. No crowds, unbelievably peaceful and absolutely beautiful. It doesn’t have the long white beaches, so ignored by the masses. Electricity was connected in September, it will unfortunately change the island. About two thousand locals here and now their lives will be different. Everyone now has lights, TV and internet.
The view is out to Koh Jum and Koh Phi Phi. The beach is nice and coconut palms everywhere. Mr Chung is fabulous to his staff, they are employed both high and low season and get on like a big family. Accommodation is basic, but quite ok.
At the end of the working day, Mr Chung got the male staff and our kids together for a game of soccer, with the female staff in stitches watching. They played for an hour and had a fabulous game.
Food is excellent and like everything else, quite reasonable. We'll be back, like so many others.
