Visited Kradan in Jan 22 and was gutted to see this place had closed. In fact the jungle has pretty much claimed it back now....real shame. I doubt it can be restored either, but maybe another budget place will appear in the future.

A short walk in to the jungle on the island, this pearl serves the best and most tasteful thai-food on the island. However, our 10-y/o son's favorite was their Pasta Bolognese! We made a routine out of having lunch here after a nice morning on Sunset beach (which we often had to ourselves), but as it also is so nice and friendly we came here in the evenings too. Highly recommend Paradise lost!

I am sorry to write this, but we had a really horrible experience. The bungalows are extremely basic, with no hot water, no air conditioning, even no proper floor!! Moreover the few poor items that are there are extremely dirty and cheap, the mosquito net with holes (included some pics). The owners and staff are unfriendly, they do not even offer a glass of water when you arrive (there is quite a walk through the beach and on a small path through the woods, depending on temperature and humidity can be challenging with luggage...). Insects are everywhere. Breakfast is not included. There is a sinister atmosphere everywhere around the place. In the evening, if you want to go to the village, you have to take the pathway through the woods, very dark and unbelievably full of bats and wandering dogs, it was really scary!! I admit I am more a city lady, so maybe this was more challenging for me than for others, but I travel a lot and what I really did not like is feeling that this place was an intentional rip off for the tourists. On other Islands the price for this "service" would be 20/25 €, here for 2 people 50€.... STAY AWAY

The huts are not on the beach but it is actually quite convenient as it gives you access to the 3 beaches of the island instead (one for snorkel, one for sunset and one for a nice run) it is also nice to wake up in the Lush of a tropical garden instead of opposite boats. Only down side was the cold water for shower, we got caught in the middle of a storm so it wasn’t as warm as usual and tricky for our two 2 years olds.

Not to be mistaken for a resort, this place is definitely on the rustic side and suitable for travellers who can do without the luxuries. We had planned to stay for two nights and extended to five as we loved it so much. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfy, mosquito net needed a little repair but did the job fine. The food and drink was outstanding, though expensive. But this is to be expected on such a small island. Really great that they had free filtered drinking water, so bring a bottle and save on plastic! Though they could do with paper/reusable straws as they serve most cold drinks with plastic ones. The accom is only a short walk from both front and back beaches, and we enjoyed the walk as it was through the jungle. Being tucked away from the beaches meant it was quieter during the day (as there can be many boat-loads of people arriving for day trips) If you like secluded places, beautiful beaches and don’t mind sharing a bathroom then this will do the trick. Would recommend.

Paradise Lost is a collection of rustic wooden bungalows in the middle of the jungle on Koh Kradan. Things are looking a bit tired and it seems like they are mid-construction trying to fix things up (for example, there were only 2 toilets for 7+ bungalows without bathrooms and a dorm). But really the whole point is the location - you are in a prime spot to walk to Sunset Beach or any of the other beaches on the island. It's quiet and away from the hordes of day-trippers that descend on the front beach each day where all the other resorts are. The food is excellent (though pricey) and there is no wi-fi, which means it's easy to chat to other guests and enjoy being off grid for a while. Free water refills are really great too! We were expecting it to be a bit rustic but it's still comfortable, even if it could use a bit of maintenance. We'd read about the vibe and were expecting a little more but it sounds like things have changed since one of the owners passed away. The staff were helpful but not super friendly and it lacked a little atmosphere which is a shame.

Basic bungalows in a fantastic location. In jungle surroundings yet the beaches are about a 5 minute walk through the bush. Only downside is there is no fridge in the bungalow which means no basic supplies like cold water or the ability to make coffee in the morning until the restaurant opens at 8 am which doesn't help early risers like myself.

On arrival at Koh Kradan, a young man helped us with our cases with a scooter with side cart as the resort is 400m inland from the beach. On arrival at the resort, a lovely lady called Chan checked us in with a big smile. We stayed in a bungalow with no bathroom as there were no others available. At first we were a bit concerned about sharing a toilet and shower with other guests, but it turned out that these were kept very clean at all times. In fact they were cleaner than private bathrooms in other resorts we have stayed at. The bungalow was big enough for a large double bed and our cases. It also had a patio looking over the garden, perfect for enjoying a drink before dinner.I have to say it is one of the most peaceful places we've ever stayed at. All the noise you could hear was from the birds and other animals in the jungle. We had dinner in the resort restaurant every night and the food was very nice. They do both Thai and international food, mainly Italian as the owner is Italian. We met the owner on our last day there and he is a charming Italian man whose Thai partner also runs the resort and does a lot of the cooking. Gianni also owns an ice cream business in Thailand and you can savour his authentic Italian ice cream at the resort. I can highly recommend the chocolate and the coconut ice cream. The resort is not 5 star, but what it lacks in luxury, the staff more than make up for with their cheerfulness, kindness and willingness to help. It felt a bit like being amongst old friends. If you don't mind a bit of roughness around the edges, I highly recommend Paradise Lost!

After visiting Thailand for many years and seeing the tourism industry inevitably develop, I wanted to spend some time trying to find at least a hint of how it used to be. It can indeed be found at Paradise Lost. The rather ramshackle accommodation and relative piece and quiet can remind you of times gone by. This place suits the hipper - or wannabe hip - euro crowd. The walk through the jungle to the nearby beach is a real step back in time, and well worth a visit. However, I just couldn’t understand why the island as a whole was so expensive/overpriced. There are islands nearby which are literally half the price, have equally good beaches and are much quieter. Supply & demand I suppose. Overall, worth a few nights here; the staff are super friendly and the garden area is quite pleasant. Don’t go to the restaurant if you’re hungry though - the portions are inexplicably small - thought tasty.
