This place was great and made my vacation. Stayed 6 nights leading up to and through Full Moon Party. Martin and his wife are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Not only were they fun to talk to, they were always approachable and helpful in providing suggestions and feedback on what to do on the island. The food was among the best... More

We stayed for 5 nights in a 'budget garden view bungalow'. It seems like for a budget room you won't get a mosquito net or nets covering the windows. According to the Australian owner there are no mosquitos in the area - I can promise you there are. Thankfully we had our own net with us. I broke the (very... More

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

You damaged our room, and were charged a very little amount of money (180 baht), and yet complain. It is plainly untrue that you were told there were "no mosquitoes in the area"... that is ridiculous. We show our customers that we have little electronic devices to control mosquitoes, and tell them that with the fan in use and repellent... More

Well what a lovely place, been back a few times now and still just as good as the first time. Perfect for all sorts if you are down to earth and up for fun. For the price you pay its amazing, dont expect 5 star accomodation for the price but Martin and Noy make it 5 star, both extremely welcoming,... More

Nice cheap bungalows. Will definitely come back. But I will remember to order with air condition next time, then it will be perfect :-) Nice owner and good prices in restaurant. We felt welcom from first minute. If you are going to fullmoonparty this place is perfect.

Hi Henry, Thanks for your kind words and constructive, well articulated critique of our inarguable up-gradable property - we can all do with an upgrade from time to time! However, most of your personal attacks toward me are not related to the rather long list of imaginary complaints you have conjured. For example, you call me "lazy"... but I am... More

Cannot recommend this place enough! A family run place that is super chilled and perfect for those wanting both somewhere chilled and idyllic as well as somewhere close enough to the party scene. The owner Martin and his wife run the place and we have to say, the way they run the place is really something special. You help yourself... More

Thanks Amy for your great review. We love our work, and although not perfect, and with some holes in the fabric, we try our hardest (we only have 2 staff). People like you who respect and appreciate our efforts make our work so enjoyable, and we are happy to serve you the best we can. We try to improve, and... More

After a quick transfer from the airport and a quick boat ride to Haad Rin, we caught a quick taxi to Rainbow Bungalows. What a hidden gem, as you walk from the road this family run resort appears amongst lush gardens and scenic ocean views. Our checkin was quick and we were then welcomed into the restaurant area where MAMMA... More

This was my favourite place I stayed in during our Thailand trip. My friend & I stayed here for the full moon party - it's in a perfect location in between Haad Rin/ Baan Tai. We made the decision to not stay near Haad Rin during the Full Moon Party as it can get very intense & unsafe. Rainbow Bungalows... More

Me and a friend stayed at the bungalows for 4 nights during the full moon party period. I have to say I was amazed with how homely the beautiful little bungalows were. The guard dogs Wally and Max really do make you feel safe and for 2 teenage girls we were on edge at first but they made us feel... More

It is with deep regret we must admit it took us a year to finally write this, but my girlfriend and I had the absolute time of our lives here at Phangan Rainbow Bungalows and we've talked about it every day since. This was the capstone of a 13 day tour of Thailand and what an amazing way to end... More
