Just left Bottle Beach and am already missing it! We stayed for three nights and it was not long enough at all. The beach is just completely beautiful - in a secluded cove, pure white sand, bright blue sea and not at all built up or touristy. We'd been to Ko Phangan a few years previously and were told it...

For anyone on a budget .these places can be a nightmare .. The money extortion techniques are crazy.. They know only they have the cars to bring you to the resort and take you ... Yet some of them can charge an exorbitant amount per head ... Not to mention they even tried d to add unnecessary stuff to our... More

The island tourist map lists the hike from Haad Komh to Bottle Beach as 1 hour challenging hike. IT IS NOT!! We are experienced hikers and it took us 3 hours with steep rock traverses, mountain climbs and ver dangerous terrain. Thank god for the bottles leading the way. If you do this hike DO NOT underestimate it!! Don't take... More

The staff are so friendly and treat you like family, definitely the best service I've had in Thailand. The location is great, a secluded beach where you can truly relax and disconnect. And get away from all the crazy full moon party antics. We stayed in a beach front bungalow, it was simple but spacious and had everything we needed;... More

Stayed here for a week with my wife and friends and we all loved both the hotel and the staff. The beach is beautiful, sandy and isolated (15 minute taxi boat ride from Chaloklum, you can also get there by 4WD). As all of the beach view bungalows were taken, we got a bungalow in the second row, not right... More

Great soft sandy beach to escape the hustle and bustle that you often find in Thailand. Very isolated about 1hr in 4WD from Thong Sala pier, at times using the 4WD! Once you get here you are not going anywhere else until you check out! We had a beach front bungalow that was basic but clean with comfy beds and... More

One recent review sums it up nicely- it is a lovely beach (some rubbish around but this is a developing country) but once you are here, you are staying. Great cautious driver picked us up from the ferry, approx 1hr car journey thru winding roads and requiring 4wd at one point. I get carsick but was ok. We loved our... More

This hotel is fantastic. Its a one of a kind. It has a huge pool with different levels. The restaurant serves very nice delicious food. The rooms are clean and very cozy. The resort is literally 0 meters from the beach which also is perfect. The beach is Surrounded by tropical rocks. And if you want to, you can see... More

We booked late and they only had 1 room available that we wanted so they upgraded us both to a garden bungalow for free! We were so happy with this we instantly booked another night. The service from check in to check out was perfect. Carrying bags, showing you to the room, explaining how things work. Great! The pool is... More

We were recommended to stay at this resort by a friend, due to the lack of crowds and partying that Ko Phangan usually has on the southern shores. Well, it was definitely a quiet hotel but I would say definitely geared towards backpackers. Very basic beach bungalow, which is fine and was an experience we could say we did, but... More
