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

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
