“Simple but great retreat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

It seems there is some confusion about this place. Seaview Rainbow is located in the village of Ao Srithanu, North of Thong Sala harbor. The pictures here do not represent this resort, unless there is another resort with the same name on the island.
The bungalows are on a big, white sandy beach. There is a mosquito net over the bed and a fan in the room. The bathroom is in the Thai style with cold shower and a western toilet. Simplicity in a great spot. So quiet and so beautiful. The restaurant has a full card with delicious food at very, very moderate prices. Overnight for a bungalow costs B 500. Ao Srithanu is small but provides everything from ATM machines, restaurants, cafés, small supermarket and a 7-Eleven open round the clock!

Room Tip: All the bungalows are on the beach and look very much alike.

We stayed at Rainbow during the Full moon party week so the area was a bit crazy. Rainbow was a nice retreat close to the entertainment but thankfully not in the throes of it. It is owned by a local women and her Australian husband. They provide a beautiful setting at a very reasonabl price. There is a restrauant on site and the food, both local and western, is very tasty. You can get there from Koh Samui by ferry and rent a car or motorbike about 200 hundred yards from the ferry. If needed Rainbow will be happy to recommend area attractions and dive guides. We had this arranged before we arrived so didn't need the service. I have recommended this hidden gem to lots of my friends heading to the area.
