This has been one of the highlights of all the places visited during my travels all over the world. I loved it! Far from the maddening crowd in idyllic surroundings, close to nature, with the sea at your doorstep, the sound of the waves when you go to sleep and to wake you up - total relaxation. We stayed in... More

This small beach although difficult to get to offers something amazing to those who make the effort to get there. Waterfalls, quiet beach and bungalows that are quite different from anything else I have come across in koh phangan. My bungalow was built into the rocks and I could just step outside onto the rocks to sit and watch the... More

I have been here several times and love it. This year we stayed on the rocks in a family room and they had been done up- really nice finishing touches. It was a busy time, but the staff were always sweet. It is a fantastic place for those of us who appreciate the natural side of life and need a... More

This is my favorite place to stay in Thailand. I've been there two times. I stayed in the beachfront bungalows. The are modernized and really nice. Very clean. The beach is very beautiful and not crowded. The food in the restaurant is awesome. The staff is very friendly and helpful! I will go there again soon. C u there!

A belated review (still busy travelling!) but I loved my stay Mai Pen Rai! Secluded. Lovely beach, great beach front bungalow (spotless) and fantastic, (v friendly) staff and restaurant. I stayed a month on the island, on every beach, except Had Rin) and Mai Pen Rai was up there as a highlight. I first stayed on Ko Phangan nearly 20... More

My friend I stayed here during the time of the full moon party because we wanted to be far enough away so we didn't have to stay 5 nights but also close enough to go. Mai Pen Rai is very secluded and has it's own little bay with a cute beach. Therefore, it was very popular for families and for... More

We just returned from 6 days at Mai Pen Rai Bungalows and loved it. The bungalows on the rocks were lovely and the view to die for. It is peaceful and quiet and the perfect holiday destination to unwind. The resort is definitely not for all ages as it is a hike to the bungalows especially if you have suitcases... More

I was not brought up in nature... So I struggled with the fact that snakes are pretty much anywhere and spiders the size of a fist of a fully grown man! I did not sleep well! Some will love it!! There are way too many dogs on the island and without fail at 6 am every morning they bark and... More

I've visited this beach many a time over the years of living in Asia and stayed in most of the huts here. Mai Pen Rai is the slightly pricier one of them all, but worth it if you can spend the few extra dollars and still good value. Best huts are either on the beach or the ones on the... More

Let me start by saying this isn't the place for you if you want to be close to the hectic nightlife areas on Koh Phangan. This place is off the beaten track on a beautiful isolated stretch of beach. It was a bit of a mission to get there and involved a pretty pricey taxi ride then a jeep to... More
