My partner and I spent nearly a week at the Hansar in September 2012. We had booked a Seaview XL room but on arrival found we had been upgraded to a Beachfront room which was a great start to our holiday! The accommodation was excellent with a comfy king bed and huge day bed on the verandah where there's also a ceiling fan to keep things cool.
The staff were courteous and helpful. Location is terrific - right next to the Fishermans Village at Bophut. Make sure you're there for Friday night when the whole village is transformed into a fantastic food and drink street market - it's a great night. There's also a good choice of restaurants along the beachfront.
The Thai food from the hotel bistro was excellent. Also some good international dishes but check the prices first as some dishes are pretty expensive.
The hotel pool is to die for, or you can lay on a sunbed on the beach. The in-house spa is also very good.
The hotel is in a great location for tours to Ko Phang An or the Angthang Marine Park - about an hour away by speed boat and you can hire jet skis or wave skis on the beach if you're feeling energetic. The view from the pool or from the rooms is beautiful.
One of the best hotels we've stayed at anywhere and a great place to unwind and recharge your batteries.
