We had a lovely five days with Mart and Noy and our accommodation was very comfortable and clean. We stayed in the family rooms. Loved the proximity of the bungalows and although we visited at a time not great for swimming, we could see how extra fantastic it would be when the tide came in more. Noy's cooking was exceptional... More

Had a great time here with my girlfriend. The owner is very helpful if you have questions and his wife makes really good food. We stayed in a bungalow with a fan and cold water and it was really affordable. Tip is that you rent a bike from their neighbours, which is family from him if im right. Ban tai... More

Stayed for 5 days in a big group and had the best time. We hired a hired a car to get to the other side of the island and see a few attractions further away which was well worth it. However it's easy to get a cab or walk to other places from Rainbow too. Highlight staying here would have... More

Close to Haad Rin. Good food. To many Beds in the room. No hot shower. No place to put your stuff in the room. For example no wardrobe. No shelf. No hooks. Still a nice place to stay but could use a few little improvements.

Staying at a beachfront bungalow at Rainbow Bungalows was one of the highlights of our trip. Our room was clean and spacious, and there was even a bathtub. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed playing the games that were available for us -- including golf clubs to play golf on the beach, kayaks, and board games. The staff... More

Phangan Rainbow Bungalows were incredible! My partner and I travelled with another couple on our first trip to Thailand and landed here. The Owners: Noy and Martin along with their lovely family and staff treated us all like Kings and were so helpful in every way. Our first night Martin gave us a tour of the local village and Noy...

Very cool, laid back and peaceful little spot. The view is spectacular and Noy made us an incredible breakfast. Martin was cool and very hospitable also- and The gardens were gorgeous. Got to learn a little about wacky Australian sports also. We were out and around most of the time, but being back at rainbow was very relaxing and enjoyable.... More

Thanks Heath for your good review. To anyone who reads this, I would like to say that of the 596 accommodation properties on Koh Phangan, Phangan Rainbow Bungalows is the 75th cheapest. This means there are 521 more expensive options, (at the time of writing). And nearly all the cheaper ones are backpacker dorm style roadside guest houses. So, with... More

I decided to stay at Rainbow Bungalows as it is half way from the Pier and Haad Rin... Where all the party goers stay. Noy is by far the nicest person I have met since my arrival to Thailand. She does not only runs the place, but also takes the time to talk and know about you. In my case... More

Hi Juan, some very wise philosophers once said that there may be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Of this I cannot be certain. However I can assure you that somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true. Glad you had a good time, and... More

We booked this place for a few nights for the full moon party due to the many reviews on tripadvisor. We were instantly disappointed, we were expecting paradise and this place was far from it! We had booked a 'mid range' bungalow, there was nothing mid range about it. The only difference to basic was its size and the fact... More

It was a great shame you only stayed 3 nights. We were terribly sorry to see you go, you were so much fun and the life of the party... in fact after you departed everyone asked where you had gone, (the place just wasn't the same without you.) I think the key grievances you had (and there were several!) revolved... More

Me and my wife booked Rainbow because it looked a good location, right on beach and near to Hat rin where the full moon party is held but far enough away we wouldn't be effected by it should we retire before sunrise. I'd say it's the best place we have stayed out of 5 different venues accross thailand on our... More
