Loved everything about this hotel! We booked a bungalow with a sea view and although it was small you don't really notice as on your doorstep is the pool and then the beach. Incredible views to wake up to! Stayed for the full moon party in August and was so much fun. Bobo really makes the place and gets everyone... More

Stayed here for the half moon party in July and it was a lot of fun. Bobo (hotel manager) throws a big pregame where she paints everyone's faces. 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

She learnt our names immediately and was keen to help us in any way she possibly could. If you come here for not other reason but her and the... 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. We are travelling on a budget, so pretty much always pick the cheapest available room,... More

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
