“super place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I arrived in koh phangan without any reservation. I rented a scooter and moved to north to find a place where to stay.
the first I checked was sea scene.. and I couldn't have a better strike!
the place is absolutely marvellous, a quite oasis with a wonderful beach.
people who work there are absolely kind, polite, and available for any thing you may need.
there are 2 kind of bungalows, I tried both: the garden ones, nice and clean, with no view, and the front beach ones, who are s t u n n i n g!, at 3 meters from the beach, with the sea as only rumour.
generally, the place is quite, no noise at all.
the food is very good.
quality/price is amazing.
difficult to find better place at such cost, in my opinion.

close to surat thani (5 mins by scooter), not to hat rin (20 mins by scooter). if you wanna have night parties, this is not the right place. if you wanna relax, enjoying a marvellous, silent place, than sea scene is 200% recommended.
Ask for bungalow number 5.. I will miss it!

The resort is very near to the town (<10 minutes by motorbike which you can rent at the resort). The staff are very friendly and very helpful. The food is great too.
If you take a sea-side bungalow you will be able to see the sea and the sunset from your bed :-) and you can be in the sea within 25 seconds.
Ideal for couples but also for family with children.

Top location just out of town and on beach. I stayed for a couple of nights in one of the basic ensuite huts. The huts could do with a bit of TLC, but it was clean and comfortable. I really liked siting out on the veranda in the evening listening to the sea and the frogs.
The gardens are imaculate. The plentiful staff friendly and welcoming but leave you to yourself.
I ate in the restuarant a couple of times the food and mango smoothies were really good, but a tad expensive.
I stayed out of season, it was a little stormy- which was great for rain and electric storms but the manager explained to me not the best for the tides - or the turquoise seas. It was wonderful all the same.

Very good value for money. Far from the road noise, next to fantastic sunset beach. Hamocs and chairs at disposal on the beach. Excellent food and reasonable price. Leo beer is cheap! WIFI is also very good speed and quality, but only from the restaurant area. Rooms are clean. Not far from the Tong Sala pier, 5min by scooter.
I recoomend you to go there. I checked many places and most of them are either overpriced or crap. Hight season i paid 700 for fan room.

The resort is very quiet. Staff were lovely. The best part is the beach is right at your doorstep! No TV in the room but that's okay, who needs TV when the beach is right there?!? Everything is very basic, no phone, aircon is good but not much use for it since we have the sea breeze. We went to Koh Phangan for the Full Moon Party & so coming back from the party, a nice quiet relaxing place is really good.

We stayed for almost 10 days at Sea Scene. We came here with 2 families and we both stayed in family bungalows. The bungalows were great, they were cosy and big, had a comfortable big bed and 1 person bed, a terras to sit on in the evenings and a basic bathroom.

The small private beach was just wonderfull and perfect for our families. It is a white sandy beach enclosed by some rocks and palm trees. You can do some snorkeling or canoe if you want.

The restaurant offers everything you need, from Thai to European food. Price/quality is very good. We had a birthday in our family and the kitchen ladies made something special. We wanted fresh fish on the BBQ and the manager went to the market to get it. Anything you want...

The hotel staff is very, very friendly, we loved them, and we want to thank everybody, and especially the hotel manager. If we ever come back to Ko Phangan, it will be Sea Scene again!
