The very helpful director welcomed us one day in advance (we messed up with the dates) and managed to find us a very nice room. We spent 4 nights in the very downtown of fishermen's village of Chaloklum, which was a good choice to stay in Ko Phangan : far from Fullmoon Parties crowd, but with a lively local life.

Far away from the overrated full moon parties at Haadrin and Thongsala lies Chaloklum Village. The fishing port, beach, and town are set in a deep, lush, and protected North facing bay. The town itself is composed of a 1 kilometer strip of low-level traditional Thai shop houses, small restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops that line Chaloklum Bay. Just as... More

We booked 12 nights through Agoda who led us to believe that this was a fabulous luxury hotel going for an amazing bargain price - from 250 us dollars to 38 per night !! We were bitterly disappointed to discover a pretty but smallish room with no balcony, although advertised as a suite didn t even have a small table... More

Don't expect a four star hotel with all luxurious facilities. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful environment you are definitely in the right place. Grate location with opportunities in overflow to visit the most lovely and not crowded beaches by boat. Just a few steps outside the hotel you are in a very small authentic village and... More

We' ve staied recently three nights in this hotel. Size of the property enables a familiar athmosphere, which we greatly appreciated. The hotel manager is a great help in booking some trips, organising taxi service etc. The rooms are big, the suites have even a whirlpool. Pool and beach access provided. You have to be aware of the fishermens' village... More

Nice people in beautiful hotel situated on the fisherman village. Big beds in big rooms, in a quiet street. I guess I will go back for sure! They have friendly staff who always found solutions for all our inquiries. Nice job to the new owners, you make something good!

Just writing to warn people the hotel is closed. We went past the hotel late April and it nas a for sale sign on it 50-60 million baht I think is the asking price. It is a great location right on the beachfront of a beautiful fishing village. hopefully someone will buy it and do the necessary repairs.

I wouldn't book Mandalai... We had our resevations for this hotel 3 months before our trip and 2 weeks before arrive to the place they contact us saying that the hotel is overbooked for the period that we pay. Now we can't book other place because all of them are completely full in Ko Phangan. Sooooo desapointed!!
