Our daughter travelled to PhanGan 2 years ago and stayed at the Rainbow bungalows. The amazing staff looked after Alicia magnificently - what they did for her was definitely beyond the call of duty. Our daughter has since recommended to all her friends to stay at this place as the owners and staff treat all customers like family. Our daughter... More

This jewel in the crown of Koh Phangan is really special. Every comfort expected of 4 star accommodation was here, but at an amazingly low price (are you sure it's not more?). The rooms were clean and comfortable ... importantly for us the bathroom was spic and span. Home cooked food to our liking - either traditional Thai or Western... More

I've stayed at Pha Ngan Rainbow on a number of occasions and every time has been fantastic. The accommodation, the food, the atmosphere, the surroundings...I can't praise this place enough. Martin and Noy are the most welcoming of hosts to travellers from all over the globe. I've read some negative comments about the place-one complained about the tide [Martin is... More

I stayed at the Rainbow bungalows and had an AMAZING experience!! The private bungalow that my brother and I stayed in was SUPER clean and had a private bathroom. The beach was guarded by dogs who only responded to locals roaming the beach, not friendly tourists. The food served was incredibly tasty and did not result in any type of... More

Stayed there in feb 2011 and i have to say it was amazing. It was my 1st time in thailand and me and a few other friends booked to stay at the rainbow bungalows. Mine and my friends bungalows were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We ate breakfast there most days and had no problems with the food. Its location... More

My friends and I have stayed at Phangan Rainbow Bungalows twice now, two years running and couldn't fault it at all. The staff (including the dogs!) are incredibly friendly and welcoming and are full of great advice about what to do on the island. The food is delicious, a really good balance between Thai and western dishes and they offer... More

I've been there twice already on my stays in Koh Phangan. If you dont want to stay at the crowded and noisy beach of Haad Rin, this is the place to relax and hang out. Martin and Noy have built a beautiful place! The bungalows are new and clean, everything works prefectly, showers are good (theres actually real water-pressure, not... More

I was travelling around Thailand with my girlfriend and this was about the fifth place we stayed at, but once we arrived we couldn't leave! Sun, sea, local walks, lovely food, and Martin and Poy were the best hosts ever. With the Full Moon parties up the road in Haad Rin and many happy travellers (they all seemed to be... More

Stayed there for 2 days in Dec 2011. Nice place, I thought we had found heaven, until I ate. Got the soup and there were bugs in the food. Small maggots, boiled, with tiny flies maybe fruit flies. Also in the rice. I told the staff and they didn't seem to care. Within hours I had a very upset stomach... More

Thanks for the interesting review Candy. (Mind boggling to think this horrible event occured in early December... where have you been? LOL) We do however harbour a few reservations about it's accuracy. Straight off the top, Noy and I can't recall this, (or any other similar event) ever occuring in our 23 year history... Naturally you'd have to accept our... More
