Situated right on the beach, has lovely views. Hotel staff where very friendly and helpful. I would recommend booking in advance overheard a conversation between staff and a group enquiring about price and they where charging nearly double because of the full moon party. Brilliant place to stay also for the full moon party only a 100 baht to it... More

Rung Arun is good value for money, by the beach and has a good pool. The staff are family run and are very friendly too. The wifi however is poor, the beach it lies on isn't fantastic and its a long walk to the nearest restaurant (around 20 minutes) So a taxi or scooter is recommended. One of the dogs... More

Rung Arun is a silent resort..it is away from the full moon party arena...having independent huts/bungalows and having a private beach. Staff is friendly..they have travel desk for cab ferry bus etc booking...beach is clean with white sand and silent environment. You can get a tuktuk to go anywhere in Koh Phagna. Pool is not too big but who goes... More

I didn't actually stay at this resort, but I got bitten by their dog as I was running along the beach (a golden retriever). The workers were very nice and helped me clean up and everything, and it did seem like a great place to stay. I just wanted to warn people to be careful! Ko Phangan is definitely not... More

we stayed in a cheap room due to a mess up at another hotel down the road, he charged 1,400 baht a night as the dates we needed fell on a full moon party date - despite the fact we were not interested in attending the full moon party! We found out that the nicer cabin rooms were only 400... More

What should I say, we arrived in Ko Phagan, rented a scooter and checked out several bungalows and ended booking 2 nights at Rung Arun. After 2 nights we extended our stay for another 3 nights and finally stayed 2 weeks at the resort as it is simply a great place to stay. Beds are comfy, showers depend a bit... More

We were introduced to the Rung Arun last year by some good friends who had stayed previously. Im pleased to say that on returning this year, nothing has changed. Its a place for complete relaxation, there is no formality and the resident pets are all as friendly and welcoming as the owners and staff. We have a beachfront cottage this... More

My friend and I booked on Booking.com to stay 3 nights in a bungalow for the full moon party. We did this as we didn't want to risk not getting accomodation as it gets busy for the full moon party. Seemed a good deal, but when we arrived we were charged the booking fee of 5,200 baht for 3 nights... More

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
