We booked a bungalow here for 3 days in advance. Although overall the place is cute, we really had to try our best to get a "hello" or "welcome" from the bored looking staff (Except for Sen, a man a few words who actually gets things done). The second day, the staff decided to close not only their restaurant/bar for... More

We just return from a wonderful 12 days trip to South-West Tailand, after 3 days in the deep jungle, we arrived at the Shambhala where we had booked a "family sea-view" room in what we thought would be a very cute & Lovely Bungalow village. Instead we were given a plain "budget hotel" room, with main road on one side... More

The location is perfect to relax and do nothing, it was a busy time when we were there but this beach felt isolated and untouched. The staff treat you like family and are very inviting. They made us feel comfortable right away. I couldn't recommend this place enough if you are looking for somewhere to relax and away from all... More

What an amazing place to stay! We came for the Full Moon Party (minimum 5 night stay), and stayed in a beachfront bungalow. This place was such a paradise to come back to after nights of partying in Haad Rin and at the Full Moon Party. It is secluded away from everything else so it is very peaceful and quiet.... More

Shambhala Bungalow Village is, by far, the best place I would recommend you to stay in Koh Phangan. Whether you are planning to visit Koh Phangan for a romantic weekend on the beach, a solo travel to disconnect from the world, or with friends for a full moon party, Shambhala Bungalow Village offers all that you may need. One step... More

We spent a very relaxing 5 days in Shambala Bungalow Village. Our charming room (number 5) had a view of the ocean but was shaded by stunning tropical foliage, and kept cool by keeping all the windows open - we didn't need a fan. We locked our things away in a lockable cupboard, however, there is also a safe in... More

If you are looking for a warm, friendly place to stay with beautiful location and friendly company, then you should definitely consider Shambhala. My partner and I arrived here from Bangkok via Koh Samui and have thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights. We booked a superior beachview bungalow, only a minute from the laid back restaurant on the beach. Everyone working... More
