Fodor's Review

Of the guesthouses on Haad Kuat, this one on the western end of the beach is the best. Huts are on the hillside and have large wooden decks overlooking the water. The bright bathrooms are decorated with shells. The bungalows higher up on the hill are duplexes and have the best views. The restaurant has a comfortable seating area with both standard wooden tables and low tables surrounded by triangular pillows. The staff frequently hangs out with the guests in the evening, when the music gets turned up, the lights turned down, and cards and beer bottles cover the tables. The beach is great for swimming. The bungalows only have electricity from 6 pm to 6 am.
