This place is right on the beach and is so relaxed. The beach and the view are exceptional and it's great to watch the sunset. The rooms are basic but very good for the price. We received great service from Martin and Noy and would like to thank them. We also ate in the restaurant a few times and the... More

Seriously, I can't say enough good things about this place. We arrived late at night, and the staff were so friendly they decided to open the kitchen again to feed us. They look after you to no end. The location is as good as it gets. Right on the beach, only a 10 minute drive from Hadrin Beach for the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in November on a recommendation from a friend. The location is perfect, with the bungalows right on the beach, and a chilled communal area where you can get a bite to eat / drink and watch the sunset. Service and chat from Martin and Noy is exceptional, and food is some of the best we... More

We stayed for five nights at rainbow bungalows and had an awesome time! The bungalow we had was very low priced and clean. It was basic furnished, which was more than sufficient for us. The view is lovely - and that's only the garden view. There are bungalows right at the beach where the view is even better. The owners... More

Where do I start with this place. We read all the reviews, good and bad. Some of Martin's retorts are quite hilarious and, to be fair, very accurate. If you want five star luxury and staff chasing after you all day then this place is not for you. If you want away from the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui... More

This is lovely place to stay. It is pretty, very clean and away from rowdiness. Noy and Martin are very helpful and welcoming. A great place to relax and unwind. Made even easier by the fact Martin sent me an easy link to paypal so I could pay online.

My best friend and I had such a good experience at Phangan Rainbow during our trip to Thailand. We couldn't believe how little we were paying to stay in such a beautiful, clean, comfortable bungalow right on the beach! The food in the restaurant was delicious too. The surroundings were idyllic, and conveniently close to Haad Rin and the other... More

We had a great stay for 5 nights over new years eve. Martin and his family were super friendly and helpful in every way. The bungalows are clean and with perfect see view and private beach. We (a couple) even got a 4 person bungalow for the regular 2 person price because all other bungalows were occupied. It is perfect... More

I fell in love with Phangan Rainbow on my 1st visit to Thailand in 2011. They were recommended by one of my suppliers and I was not disappointed. Noy, Martin and the Family (this includes Ouma, Oupa, Jack, nieces, the staff and the dogs!) are the most amazing and genuine people. The accommodation is comfy and the food is to... More

Firstly WOW. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this wonderful place never fails to amaze me. Every time I come back I never want to leave. Not only are the bungalows reasonable, you get so much for your money and all of this right on the beach front. The food is out of this world and I... More
