In 2009, I got a boat from Surat Thani to Kho Samui and had no idea where I would be staying the night I got to the Island. After meeting an Irish fella on the boat who recommended New Hut, I got off the boat found the rep and paid for two nights.
FOUR WEEKS later, I had to leave to meet a friend in Singapore. If not for them, I would have stayed longer.
The staff are so friendly and accommodating that they practically became family. On the minibus from the ferry to the huts, the driver stopped and bought us all a bottle of water because 'it no cloudy today'. I could happily live here.
If you don't like getting back to basics, this is not for you. If you want to appreciate life, nature and everything the world has to offer...this is as good as it gets. I travelled for two years and stayed in some of the most amazing hotels the world has to offer...none of them compared to this. This is one of few places that is on my 'must see again' list.
Food is slightly pricey but you can nip out the gate, turn left, walk 500yards and get what I believe to be the best Thai food Kho Samui can offer. Proper old dear cooking for her kids each lunch time yet cooking enough to serve the public.
For the price...it's paradise as you would imagine.
