We stayed here for 2 nights around the full moon party. We were greeted on arrival by the wonderful Bobo who immediately made us fee welcome. We were given a refreshing drink and our bags were taken to our rooms for us. They showed us how everything in the room worked. Bobo and all the staff are extremely helpful and... More

I'm never one to write reviews, and this is the first one I've done as a 22 year old traveller that's been away more than a year, but as i had such amazing service at first villa i felt like it needed to be done! Me and my friends stayed 3 nights here over the full moon period and couldn't... More

Bobo is a legend! Stayed on the off season during the military coup/ curfew so there wasnt much happening on the island. It was a great place to just chill out. Bobo the manager is so sweet, very helpful. Food is great, rooms are great! Thumbs up all round! Would definitely recommend!

In a word, WOW! We were greeted upon arrival by the lovely manager Bobo who couldn't be any more accommodating if she tried. We were shown to our room (a beach view bungalow) (£20/1000 baht) which was lovely! The only faults being the Jacuzzi in the bath wasn't working and the air con was actually broken. Bobo moved us out... More

The resort can be easily reached from the main pier. If you arrive by the non-stop bus from Bangkok, they drop you off at the main road. It's a 5-minute-walking to the resort. The resort is located right on the beach. At the time I was there, swimming was difficult due to unclear water. If you do walking on the... More

Firstly - stay here for BeauBo. BeauBo is one of the funniest people I have ever met, we only stayed here for one night but we wished we had been here for a week. She had us laughing from the minute we checked in until the moment we checked out - she needs her own TV show! One thing I... More

Surely the best place to stay in Ko Phangan. The staff are here are so friendly and welcoming. They will introduce you to everyone. If youre travelling on your own and you fancy a change from the hostel scene for a couple of days this place is for you. If youre a couple or a group of friends you cant... More

I couldn't have asked for a better stay than this. I arrived with an extremely bad foot infection (couldnt walk), however the owner helped me bandage my foot, organize transport to the doctors & even drive and collect pizza from outside the hotel, how many places would do that for you? The place itself it fantastic, with a great pool... More

Great set of villas. We stayed here during the Full Moon. It is perfect proximity as it allows easy access to the party by taxi and is far enough to avoid having sick on your doorstep! Beaubo is the owner (I believe) And she makes the hotel what it is! Pre-Full Moon party was awesome. Highly recommended!

Nothing bad to say about this place. Clean rooms. Good air con. Really nice pool over looking the sea. Great place to stay for half moon party, pre drinks, music and face painting in the bar the taxis are booked for you to go to the jungle. Nothing to do near by this place so I wouldn't think coming here... More
