We stayed here after a resort called the beac village cancelled our booking the day before we arrived. Apart from this hassle I am glad they did as we found this gem...the owners were perfect hosts and the bungalows are far cheaper, clean and and right on the beach...we will be back...thankyou

This is a great place with even greater people. The bungalows are very clean with nice bathrooms, private and calm beach, on the South side of the island with a nice breeze all day long. The owner Martin is a friendly, helpful and humorous man with a good heart - and seemingly great connections all over the island. His wife... More

I have stayed in many places in Thailand but I always end up going back to Rainbow Bungalows. It is definitely the best value place to stay with the most interesting visitors. I recommend the food, the cabins, the atmosphere and the beach! Love it all!

My partner and I stayed here for two week's. This place is paradise.The family who owns Phangan Rainbow are so hospitable. They keep this place looking beautiful and clean. The beach is amazing. The landscaping is outstanding. I'm going to miss my mornings laying on the beach with no one in site. We're definitely going to come back here in... More

I have traveled throughout Thailand and Rainbow Bungalows is a place that I come back to and suggest to people I know when they are planning a visit to Thailand. Rainbow Bungalows is a family run business in a professional yet laid back and friendly manner. Martin and Noy are so welcoming and the bungalows are absolutely fantastic. Thong Sala... More

This is the second time i have stayed at Rainbow Bungalows and I will keep coming back. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent. The location is amazing. I couldn't ask for anything more in an extremely affordable holiday location. The bungalows are awesome and it is a very safe environment. I would absolutely... More

My friend and I stayed at Rainbow Bungalows due to the comments and rankings here. Unfortunately, our experience was a very different one. The location itself is nice and the food is good. However, the service was a disaster! The bungalow was never cleaned, towels not replaced, nothing! On day 4 we had to insist that someone comes to at... More

Phangan_Rainbow, Owner at Phangan Rainbow Bungalows, responded to this review

Please note, for a $10 a night room you do not really have the privilege "to insist". All rooms have brooms, and we fully expect our guests to sweep the sand out all by themselves. If you believe that you warrant a higher level of service, you probably need to spend more than $10 a night. We do our best,... More

Rainbow Bungalows has it all: quiet, peaceful little beach (which you won`t find often on Ko Phangan, party central), clean bungalows directly on the beach (good mattresses&shower) plus a wonderful restaurant with very reasonable pricing with direct view of the ocean. Martin and Noi are great hosts and have made my stay very comfortable and memorable. I highly recommend staying... More

We spent three weeks at the Rainbow, and loved every minute of it. For people like us who don't like to party every night, the location is perfect, quietly tucked away between Thong Sala and Haad Rin. The bungalow we stayed in was great value for money, clean, and had a comfortable bed and a lovely view of the beach... More

Best place to stay in Phangan, bungalows are clean and comfortable, the beach and garden are immaculately maintained. Noy cooks the most amazing food, the best on the island and possibly Thailand :) It is a little piece of heaven on earth, looking forward to visiting again!
