It was a very social atmosphere and very easy to meet other travelers. We met other guests at the pregame who we then went to the half moon party with and stayed... More

We are travelling SE Asia and have stayed at quite a few places now, from big resort hotels to budget huts, all have been fine, but First Villa resort is just amazing.

This resort is beautiful. The pool looks onto the beach. The bungalows are simple but clean and comfortable. Bobo the receptionist was so helpful and friendly. The location is ideal if you like to sleep after the full moon party. Only cost 100 bath in a taxi. Would highly recommend staying here. Great value too
