What a brilliant stay, everything was perfect. From arriving Martin, Noy and all the family make you feel very welcome, it's a very relaxed atmosphere and a great meeting point in the seated area which is the heart of the place. Great for chatting and everyone was so friendly and met some lovely people. The rooms are a good standard... More

Had a lovely aircon bungalow right on the beach, huge with two queen beds and the price is definitely the best value on the Island. The restaurant food was great, had a lovely Massaman there. The owners are relaxed and helpful, booked airport return which included transport to ferry port. Beautiful sunset view from the beach. The grounds were very... More

Generally we had a fine stay at rainbow bungalows. Let's face it, for the price, you are getting what you pay for. A very basic bungalow right on the beach. We opted to go cheap and had just a fan but this did the job for us, even with +30 temps. Shower and toilet was clean and worked. Small balcony... More

...that's what a fellow traveller said to us and it's the only bad thing we could say about this charming little retreat. We arrived there tired from a long journey, tired from the cold weather in Europe and tired from the hustle an bustle back home. We immediately felt the chill and relaxing atmosphere this place has. We loved every... More

The whole experience in my 3 days here, was great even if the weather wasn't. I traveled all over thailand and this was the friendliest, most downto earth place/hotel i have been to. Owner and his family was nice, they worked all the time to keep the place running. Price was great for the bungalow during the full moon party.... More

My husband and I decided on a last minute trip to Thailand. I contacted Martin via email just a couple weeks before our arrival and luckily snagged his last bungalow during peak season. Our communication and transaction was super easy. After spending 2 nights in the chaos of Samui we were so happy and pleasantly surprised to have scored a... More

$54 usd for 3 nights, in peak season, no reason to complain even if our rooms had a corpse. In a jungle area bugs are expected and although Mosquitos bit me at least 20 times, I could only blame myself for not putting in more spray which is sold everywhere. We came mainly for half moon festival and we enjoyed... More

Thanks DC and C for the 5 star review! Regarding the corpse, I was wondering where I left that, and now I guess we know! Thanks a million, people of your ilk, friendly, easy going, and open minded (even to the odd corpse) are always welcome at our humble establishment. Sincerely, Martin. More

Many times we've stayed here at Phangan Rainbow. And it's still wonderful. Right between Thong Sala and Haad Rin, the location is great. The resort is really quiet and peaceful. It's got terrific food. Noy's a great cook. If you like comforts like air conditioning and hot water, the bungalows on the beach are perfect. Some rooms in the back... More
