Booked to stay here for 4 nights during full moon, only stayed here for 2 in the end. The staff were great, as helpful as they could be. Our room was horrible. Incredibly dirty, especially the bathroom. We arrived to be greeted by a room full of lizards and bugs. The bathroom was horrific. The toilet didn't have a flush,... More

I so much wanted to like this place, but they just didn't quite make it. The location is good, with a really nice beachfront. As many reviewers have mentioned already you have to walk half a mile to get seawater to your knees, but to evaluate this place based upon the sea is missing the point. If you're after a... More

Place is run by a Swedish family who are so nice and helpful, makes you feel at home. We had the cheapest option, a bungalow just by the beach, no AC and only cold water, quite run down but the surroundings make up for it. They clean room when you ask them to. Reception staff always helps with excursions, motor... More

My partner and myslef stayed at the Charm Beach Resort over Christmas and we had a bad experience with the staff. On the day we arrived, we asked questions about their cancellation policies. The receptionist became very aggressive and threatened to call the police. Also we had booked a beach front bungalow. The Swedish owner took us to a bungalow... More

We were a group of 7 guys doing a bit of travelling around Thailand, coming to phangan for one reason - full moon party. We paid I think £3 a night for the basic package,you get what you pay for - an old fan as AC, an OK bed, OK shower and a self flush toilet. But every hut gets... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Charm Beach Resort is a classic thai resort with that genuine feeling and a well known name on the island. The resort has been around in one shape or another for almost thirty years. During this time the bungalows and the other building has changed, but the wonderful beach has stayed the same. Today is a perfect mix of tradition and modernity, featuring AC, Wifi and swimming pool. Today the resort holds about 30 bungalows and a restaurant in the main building. One of the bungalows is set up in one of the trees, with an own balcony where you can enjoy the sunset. It also features one of the widest beach strips for one resort on the whole island. This is the place for beach activities and evening happenings. BBQ, music and cocktails are offered several nights in the week. For the young ones there's a playground in the shade, and even movie time on the beach certain nights. We hope you come and visit us and this marvelous place on one of Thailands most spectacular island, with extraordinary nature. Be sure to ask for the special day trips that are offered in the jungle, at the sea or in the mountain. There's much more to this island, beside the full moon party.From May 1st 2014 the resort has changed ownership and are now managed by a Swedish owned company. The resort is now undertaking a facelift and modernization by the new management. ... more   less
