High Life is a nice hotel - the views from our bungalow and from the pool area are fantastic. We had a bungalow overlooking the bay with a bath on the terrace which was lovely. The walk into haad yao is not far but it is up and down hills and is very dark - no so bad that it... More

We stayed for a week over the New Years Eve period and enjoyed every moment. The Haad Yao side of the island was chilled out with beautiful beaches literally 1 min walk down from the cliff/beachfront bar. Not that you needed to leave, with the restaurant having cheap cocktails and a vast range of authentic and western cuisine and an... More

The resort is built on a cliff overlooking Haad Yao beach and the beautiful beach is just 49 steps away from the bar. Definitely make it a point to head down to the beach where they have many bars, restaurants and massage stalls. For 300-odd Thai Baht, you can get hour long massages! All the amenities one would expect of... More

Situated on the quieter side of the island, High Life Bungalow Resort looks out of the beach, where you can find massages, beach front bars and restaurants, paddle boarding, and kayaking. The Resort itself has a salt water pool with an amazing view and was still refreshing after numerous beach swims. The menu contains both Western and Thai options at... More

High Life offers many of the amenities you would expect from something labeling itself a resort: on-site bar and restaurant, swimming pool, laundry, transportation, access to rental and activities. However, it offers its own spin on all of these things. You will find no uniformed bellhops; no cross-marketing; no Ikea furniture or tacky decorations in the rooms. Truth be told,... More

February 2015 was not when we travelled. We visited here August 2010 and August 2013, both times were part of a larger trip exploring thailand. We love the atmosphere at this place. They settle the bill weekly and you log your expenditure as you go. Beautiful views from there swimming pool and the whole site is on the cliff top... More

To be fair the room was good for £50 a night. Spacious, clean, big balcony. Jacuzzi was dirty though, but the weather wasn't great when here so that didn't help. Bathroom I absolutely hated! and very scary dark long walk as are room was the furthest from everything. However the location of the hotel, and the beach it is on,... More

Beautiful resort with see view from the bungalow at very good price.The rooms are beautiful and charming and very big. The swimmingpool blows up your mind. However staff's service and food are not extraordinary. The resort is approximately 20 mins from ko phangan's main city. The resort is surrounded by beautiful beaches .

We stayed in a Deluxe Double room overlooking the sea. The room came with a Jacuzzi bath and hammock on the balcony. Overall the stay was good, the views were amazing out of the room and for 40 Euros a night we felt it was reasonable value for money. However, there were a few things that would mean should we...
