I stayed at this hotel for two days, the view, food and service was all very nice, not much luxury but that doesn't affect the rating for me. The staff was very nice and helpful, they supplied motorbike rental and personal taxi service which is way cheaper than the local songthaews.

Nice rooms but a bit far off. Takes 10 minutes to get to the main street which doesn't have much to offer at that spot. Bobo at the reception is incredibly helpful an friendly. Ok pool but not very much of a beach. Perfect stay for moon party guests though (which we were not)

My friends and I stayed at this hotel during the full moon festivities and it was the perfect location, far enough away from the party to not have any noise issues and just a cheap taxi ride down the the party. Staff were amazing and even painted me a kangaroo on me for the full moon party. Food, pool and... More

We are currently staying here and while I wait to rent a bike to explore the island I thought it would be a good opportunity to write a review of my stay here thus far. Good points: Lovely spacious room with a comfortable bed, aircon, safe, balcony. The pool area has sunbeds, big pool, jacuzzi and a view of the... More

I stayed here for two nights after just landing in KP. The Not good: I booked a Deluxe room, which does not have an ocean view of any kind and overlooks a poorly maintained "garden". The property is lush, it just needs some upkeep. I had no hot water, even asking them to fix it three times. The linens need... More

5 of us set out from Bangkok to Koh Samui then by speed boat to Koh Phangan then by an over crowded non air conditioned bus to the First Villa Beach Resort. We were grumpy to say the least and then we saw the beautiful ocean looking back at us and we became a little calm. Then we met Bobo,... More

Me and my boyfriend booked this place as we wanted to stay longer on koh phangnan, we booked 2 nights but ended up booking another because of how good it is. The rooms are basic but comfortable, we booked a standard room which had a comfy bed, tv, air con and a fridge. There's more superior rooms you can book... More
