Phuket beach huts

I am afraid the beach hut you are thinking of is long gone from most of Phuket. Much more upscale now. They want a richer crowd than BPers spending $5/nite in a hut.

You can do this over on Koh Lanta, Koh Jum, the Krabi area. I would recommend that you look at Phuket, then move on to less visited islands if you want that beach bum experience.

Vegas is right... long gone on phuket. lanta is good.
koh chang an Island by Cambodia has a few good places on lonely Beach, place called the Treehouse, google it or try a Very useful travel site.
I might also mention the coast of Cambodia, place called Chiva Shack.

This is true - but it is very easy to get a boat over to Lanta/Krabi from Phuket (in season) where there are plenty of nice, cheap places to stay - we stayed at a place called Baan Phu Lae on Koh Lanta which was about $5 per night and had nice bungalows and great food.
