“Pure chill and the best food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

My family and i throughly enjoyed our stay at Chills resort. The owner a german guy, was friendly and helpful. The food here is incredible the best massaman curry i had in Thailand. Rooms are clean and nicely done. Kayaks and snorkelling gear available and a private taxi to take you to the pier or full moon party. Great stay.

Me and my girlfriend Anne had the best time here in chills resort. The owners, Eric and Nid, are so nice, very friendly, helpfull, funny,...

Besides that, the rooms are very clean and provide you everything you need to chill out (we had the airco bungalow -with great seaview). There is an infinity pool from where you can see the most beautifull sunsets ever (chills is located at westcoast, so very ideal).

As this is not enough, chills resort also has the best food EVER (thx to Nid who really knows what you can do with food :))! Also, if you like good music, talk to the owner Eric, he knows his way and you can really relax, have some beer, listening to some Johnny Cash :)!!

Last but not least, as my girlfriend got sick and had to go to the hospital they really did everything they could to help us with this. Will never forget that :)!

See you soon Eric, Nid, Yum and Meung (is this the correct spelling? :)) .... Hopefully sooner than later, we still need to see the island haha!!!

Greetings from belgium,
Anne and Alwin!

Tucked away at the end of a short but steep hill. Beautiful views over the sea from the wherever you are on the resort. Sunsets are gorgeous: you cannot help but stop and watch.
The bar/eating area has fantastic open views but is sheltered from the sun. Food is great so no need to eat anywhere else.
The family and staff that run this resort are incredibly friendly and helpful. They helped us with all our questions and made suggestions and recommendations on what we could do and where we should visit.
There are 5 bungalows and 5 apartments. We stayed in a bungalow and loved it. It was clean and air-conditioned. Only gripe that I have was that the bed was a little too hard, but that was minor.
Give this resort the highest recommendation and would definitely stay there again.

Chills Resort is a family owned facility. Located on the Northwest side of Koh Phangan, which means you end up with gorgeous sunset every night. It is a small place and all the bungalows have an ocean view. The food is suburb, as the owner went to one of the most prestigious cooking schools in Thailand and takes pride in everything she cooks.

As a solo traveller it's important for me to feel welcomed and safe while traveling. Chills Resort is one of those places where you walk in and feel like you just stepped into a family or close friend's home. The owners are lovely people, and I wish I didn't have to leave.

Oh - they offer pick-up from the ferry. Which is about a 20 minute drive or taxi ride. The Taxis are these awesome blue trucks, they pile people in and throw the luggage on top. It cost about 200Baht (6.00$) for a ride in the trucks.

This place is total paradise. It is now under new management and they have renovated the bungalows and grounds so Chills is now exactly how you see on the photos. The food is superb and well priced. Kayaks to explore the reef (only 50 meters away). A little awkward to get to as its down a steep hill but you soon work out how to ride down it with brakes. They have decent mopeds/bikes for rent. Erik and Nidd (the new managers) speak very good English and are so helpful and friendly. You will never want to leave this place - ever. But if you are compelled to go to the FMP they will organise a taxi to take you there for £2 a head and arrange to pick you up again (although you do feel guilty for bringing him out in his pajamas). Top class gaff run by top class people.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and even the cheaper fan rooms are spotless and have seaview

Stayed there in december 2011, First of all Robert picked us up at pier in thongsala, very good service... he also helped us to rent a couple of scooters from his friend without any problems.
(although the scooter guy was a bit different) anyway.. Both Robert and his family was very helpful, and also invited us to the jam sessions at his bar.. the bungalows was not so clean inside, a couple of ants and some lizards... who cares?

the seawater pool was full of sand, but it didnt matter! This is the number one chill out place in koh phangan! just take it easy! :)

remember, its located far away from haad rin and thongsala, if you gonna stay here, you have to rent a Scooter!

Overall: definitve worth trying! :)

We booked a "deluxe" villa here for 3 nights in feb. all in all it was terrible. The sheets were stained, there was an ant infestation and a lizard in the room. When we complained we were told to "chill out". It's in a very isolated location and staff are not at all friendly.

kohphanganresort, Manager at Chills Resort, responded to this review, June 6, 2013
We had a management change at Chills Resort at May 2013.
As we invested a lot to improve your holiday expirience we kindly invite you to have a look at our location next time. We are only isolated from the party life in the south which is a major advantage along all the west coast of the island.
