“Cosy & Friendly Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Arrived at this place with my friend for New Year Celebration and could not ask more! Very near to the beach which is crystal clear water & nice natural rock; you can snorkel too! The room is basic but with powerful aircond. Restaurant food is good too! There is free wifi at the restaurant and you can also book to massage & the masseur will massage in your room. But what I like the most is the friendly owner! This place is a family resort so they really care and will help you most for any information. You can ask them to book motorcycles for you, and they will try to find (even when it is peak season!). The place is near to Thongsala, (5 mins drive) but a bit far to Haad Rin (20 mins drive). Just be careful when you want to drive there because the road is small & the taxi drive very fast there. Really enjoy my stay there and will definitely recommend and come back there again. Thank you Gwaa for the lovely stay! :)

Friendly and familiar atmosphere. Nice common room, very cosy and includes a very good restaurant. We love the smoothies and tried almost all off them. Our favorite is the mango one ;).

Very lonely and quiet beach with white fine sand and palms. The bungalows are in a nice and well maintained garden. Even the cheapest bungalow (700) is with ac and clean. Our had view to the sea.

Staff is very encouraged to help.

We would definitely recommend you to stay here, if you want to relax! There was nothing which we could complain about.

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.
