Back must stay, will be back when in Thailand for the best mussaman cooked by Noy & all other dishes. Good prices and easy to do a tab for food/drink day by day. Best hosting I've come across out of koh Tao, krabi, Railay & other travels. Martin, what a GC

Me and my boyfriend have been travelling south east Asia for the last three months before ending up at Phangan Rainbow Bungalows. We have stayed at some really good bungalows during this trip but this is on a whole new level. Martin and Noy who owns and runs this establishment knows what they're doing and there friendliness makes it hard... More

We stayed here in March and it was the best place during our 3-week-tour through Thailand. We planed to stay only 3 days but since we kinda fell in love with the place and the island extended for another 3 nights. Martin is a really nice and relaxed host and his wife makes the best thai-food ever! We rented a... More

This place isn't a hotel so people complaining about air con etc i find quite strange you get what you pay for which i thought was very reasonable. As stated rooms are very basic but i was never under any illusion they where anything else. The food was delicious, the beers where cold and company was great, all on a... More

The Bungalow are basic but very good value for the low price. Food is always fresh and very delicious. You have a wonderful view in the... More

First of all, the owners Martin and Noi are so welcoming and friendly and always willing to help. The bungalows are absolutely clean. I was in one of the AC bungalows. AC was nice and quiet, new beds and clean linens. There was a bath tub with hot water. They have a private little beach overlooking the Samui Island. Restaurant... More

We love the vibe of this spot! Hanging out in the restaurant, chilling on the beach…all good! The rooms are nothing special - so don't set expectations too high for the bungalows but you don't come here to hang in your bungalow! For this part of the island there is a better beach here than elsewhere but know ahead of... More

We arrived a few days before the full moon party back in July and I think we actually stayed here 12 nights.. I can't quite remember... but it was so safe and relaxing that I didn't want to leave! We were lucky to get a bungalow at this busy time and we paid less than 600baht! We almost snapped the... More

Booked in advanced for 5 nights. Payed a large amount of money, and due to the great reviews expected to get a luxury bungalow. Instead of that we got a room with just a fan and a bed. Less than a basic room which of course doesnt reflect the high price. Except that we had no cleaning service, although we... More

Your review is complete nonsense. You are a compulsive liar it seems. You did not book a luxury room. You booked a mid-range garden room. The website makes it abundantly clear that the room does not have AC. It also states what facilities it does have. It says we have WiFi in public areas only. Also, you did not pay... More

We paid an expensive price for 5 nights and due to all the comments we expected heaven. We walked in the room and it less than basic- No a.c, no safe, no refrigerator, no T.V, only beds. We were told that our room will be cleaned after 3 days but it never happened (during 5 days)! It seems like they... More

You and your girlfriend have already written four bad reviews of our place. We were very nice to you, and we firmly believe that you decided to write the bad reviews after you became angry with us after we requested you do not smoke marijuana and ice in or around our resort (it is illegal and penalties are very high)....
