“A true gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Seaview Rainbow is North-west part of Koh Phangnan in Ao Srithanu, completely away from the partying and crowds at Thongsala - which may or may not be what you're looking for. A songthaew ride away from the ferry port of around 20 minutes, also further to the North is the bottle beach which is worth the trek. Seaview Rainbow is basically a collection of beach huts set out in a semi circle facing towards the sea. We were welcomed by Gao (sorry bad spelling) the owner who was very laid back and after showing us to our hut, told us to relax and enjoy his swimming pool (the sea) with a cheeky smile. Rooms are spacious with Thai style bathroom/shower, veranda and hammock attached. This family run place is so friendly and homely, it's like your own slice of paradise. Couple restaurants, pharmacy and ATM nearby. Enjoy!

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.

Wow rainbow was the most beautiful, charming, idyllic place to stay, from away enough from the hustle and bustle of Ko phangan, but only a very cheap and usually rather fun tuk tuk/taxi journey away from it all! we found it really good for the notorious full moon parties as we could get their safely and in good time but didnt have to hear it all when we wanted to go to bed! The bungalows are so much fun to stay in, a backpackers dream, set right on the beach, the most comfortable hammocks are sited all around and on every bungalow porch, the food was completely divine and so reasonably priced, internet was great and the people who run it are so fantastic, full of advise and so kind. I really loved staying here!!!!

Room Tip: paradise! peaceful, fun and beautiful
