I stayed here for 2 nights over the full moon - close enough to get to Haad Rin (100BHT and 15mins on the back of a truck) but far enough away to recover the next day! Rooms have good AC, pool is lovely &perfectly clean, bungalows are right on the beach. The owner guy gave us a lift to the... More

Pros: - Friendly and helpfull staff and owners - Good food offered in the restaurant - Nice and clean pool... More

Its a nice resort with clean bungalows, swimming pool and a beach. The owners are very nice and helpfull. For example, there was no hot water in our bungalow and the owner immediatly tried to fix it but it didn't work. After his failed attemption to fix it they called a mechanic (it was dark allready) and they fixed it.... More

We met some friends, who are regulars at the Rung Arun, for the final week of our holiday. We received a warm welcome from the owners and dogs alike and were shown to our room which was just a couple of steps from the sand; literally beach front. We wanted a relaxing week to end our holiday and this place... More

Loved Rung Arun! I was traveling solo and actually skipped out on a lower grade hotel down the way to stay at Rung Arun. I didn't book before hand and when I arrived, the only room they had left was their best and most expensive room. It was my birthday, so I said why not?! It was right on the... More

If you are looking for somewhere that is away from the mad moon parties then u could do a lot worse than Rung Arun resort. It's location is beautiful. Away from the parties but close enough to get everywhere with a taxi or with scooters which can be arranged at the hotel if needed, the resort has a lovely pool... More

When we arrived on Koh Phangan, we were unhappy with our accommodation, so we hired a motorbike and searched the whole island. From the northernmost beaches down to Ban Tai. There is a plethora of resorts on Koh Phangan, but not many are worth visiting in our opinion. It was therefore only on our second day of searching that we... More

Rung Arun is in a nice spot, relatively close to the pier (by taxi) - not the best beach by any stretch of the imagination, but the team is out cleaning the sand up every morning. The pool is a very pleasant extra, especially considering the price. This place is Quiet. OMG, So quiet, realised just how bad my tinitus... More
