“Nice bungalows”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011 via mobile

This is a really nice place to stay if all you're looking for is to relax in a hammock. Bungalows were clean and a decent size. Free wifi throughout. The location isn't that great as it's a bit of a walk to get to any shops that are worth going in to. But there is a really great British pub just around the corner that is definitely worth a visit. The beach is a bit scruffy looking and the water isn't too nice to swim in but that's no fault of the hotel as most of Koh Phangan's beaches seem to be like that. The hotel owners seemed nice enough. Sometimes felt like the staff were a bit rude, struggling to speak English when the owners weren't there and then had perfect English when they were. Never really used the hotel restaurant mainly for the reason above but it's also quite expensive. Two pieces of toast cost 70 Baht! It might be homemade but it's still only hot bread. You can hire kayaks etc for a reasonable price which was good. Nice sunsets and all that but can't help thinking this place is a little over rated. Nice enough but the area was a bit too quiet for us.

We had an amazing stay at Baan Manali. The location is simply stunning with fantastic views from our room. It is an ideal place to explore Koh Phangan as it is walking distance to the town of Tong Sala and only 15 minutes away from the venue for the Full Moon Party. The room itself is simple but well equipped with a large balcony to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The owner and his wife are a very friendly and welcoming couple and they are always on hand to provide helpful advice. The restaurant served some of the best food we have ever eaten in Thailand and the breakfasts were superb. Baan Manali is a peaceful and tranquil resort and we will certainly return.

We booked this after reading some good reviews - its is an amazing little place close to the port , but don't let that put you off. The location is truly peaceful within a stunning little cove - all the bungalows have a view of the ocean and a hammock to lay and take it in!! The owners are really relaxed and friendly and the food is some of the best we had. They have kayaks to hire and you can easily paddle to the isolated island in front of the resort or down the coast to some of the other bays. This place was really special!!

Place is very nice and quite!
Bungalow are very cleaned and all with seaview.
Despite the fact that during August the water level on the beach is very low, the beach is great and far from any chaos.
Staff is really friendly and we enjoied the food in the small restaurant.

Strongly reccomended.

Me and my girlfriend spent just short of a week here in March 2010. We found the rooms great, they were clean, the setting was great in a very quiet area. Breakfast was simple but good and the wifi could be picked up in the rooms.

If you stay here turn right onto the beach and take a long walk down the beach around the headland, some better beaches and a few places for a drink and a it of lunch.

Would definitely go back if i was visiting the island again.

Stayed here for 6 nights. Very nice and helpfull staff. After a day of discovering the island the Baan Manali resort is a quiet and peaceful place to come back to. Enjoy the view when you wake up in the morning.

Awesome, amazing place with great service and beautiful rooms. The owners really care about the residents and it was fantastic. To stay here during the half moon party. The bungalows look over two gorgeous islands and have a great view of the sunset. I definitely would stay here again and would be excited to do it!
