“Beautiful Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We stayed in a bungalow on the beach. It was quiet and a great place to relax. The only noise at night was the lizards :). The food was OK, we popped out to Thong Sala or Haad Rin in the daytimes so didn't try too much. The bungalow itself was relatively basic, but being right on the beach was great! They have hammocks and sun beds along the beach, and the whole place was just very chilled. The only problems we had were with the staff. The waiters and waitresses were very rude and clearly couldn't be bothered. They shuffled over to take our orders and then usually got them wrong. My boyfriend ordered a sandwich, they brought out a totally different one and then suggested that 'it is basically the same' and that he should be happy with it. It was completely different from what we asked for! They just had bad attitudes and seemed very disinterested, as did the guy running the place, who seemed more concerned with flirting with the female visitors and getting hold of some weed. Although it is a relaxed resort, we felt a lot more quality of service was needed.

Stayed here just for one night with a Dutch friend but visited many many times to hang out and chill. For the money they have the best most characterful beach bungalows I'd stayed in on Phangan and I've stayed at over 6 different bungalow resorts all over the island, not to mention countless others I've visited and nosed around! Perfect location, very attentive Thai staff and Andy and Adam the managers there couldn't be more generous and helpful connecting you with everything of interest to you on the island. You feel safe here and can really relax. Kick back on the beach watching the world go by or learn to kitesurf at the school next door. Delicious fresh food, both Thai and Western, really nice modern swimming pool, chilled beach bar with good music and wide selection of drinks, pool table and huge flat screen tv in the lounge to catch up on any sports that you like. I can highly recommend a stay here.

This place is designed for travels and that's about it...

The bungalows/huts aren't great... They have beds in and a TV and that's it... The bathroom is outside and when it rains the drains get blocked! You have to ask for your room to be cleaned and this wasn't done properly!

Air conditioning didn't always work, and there were quite a few power cuts but that's probably because it rained all the time...

The food however was pretty good! Both English and Thai food was good...

Pool area was clean... Bit of dog pooh here and there but that was the least of my thoughts...

It's not expensive to stay there and you do get what you paid for...

Last thought... If you want to experience "proper" Thailand then the isn't the place to go... Full/half/quarter moon parties were good... Not much different to partying in Ayia Napa/Ibiza etc...

Me and my friend stayed at phangan beach resort for the half moon party.
It wasn't right on top of it all but was only a cheap taxi away.. Which is just what we wanted. Our room was a basic fan room, which did get quite hot but it was very clean.

The manager Adam is brilliant. He'll give you advice on where to go and how best to go about getting around!

Our 1st night there he invited us to go watch a mai thai fight, which was brilliant. It also gave us the opportunity to meet people. He arranged us a lift to the fight, then met us after and took us all on a little pub crawl! We made some great friends whilst there.

There was a lovely pool and the food was delicious.

There isn't wifi in the rooms, only in and around the restaurant area, but why does this matter really.

A few days after leaving our 1st visit we actually returned to meet up with other friends. Adam sent someone to collect us from the dock and our friends said it was the easiest transition they'd had.

We're definitely going to try to go back and visit one day!

I stayed at this resort in December 2012. A great resort with friendly and service minded staff. The location is just perfect - right on the beach! I have been around a bit in my profession (free lance photographer) and this is a place for both party and relaxing. The owners have made this resort into a little paradise.

I stayed in one of the front row bungalows and it is a wonderful experience waking up looking out the window and all you can see is beach and water. Restaurant offered GREAT food. Nice bar and pool area too.

I can recommend this resort if you ever travel to Koh Phanang. BTW, I made a small 360-degree virtual tour: 360factory.com/th/phangan-beach-resort/

Room Tip: Go for the front row bungalows.

Our stay at the resort was very good. Rooms were clean, Adam the manager was very helpful and a nice guy, the beach is beautiful, hammocks and places to relax evrywhere and the restaurant is very good also (we nearly ate there all the time). Our room was a basic wooden room but it was clean, had a/c and basic amenities.

Only thing i would comment on would be one of the thai staff, which basically never smiled and looked tired all the time, and seemed snobbish. For the rest i would recommend and would definitely come again should i come to koh phangan.

I was at this resort only a few months ago and I just had to get back. The resort and the beach as well as the view are so beautiful! The staff is very kind and helpfull. The food was excellent as ever; both the Thai and western food.
Adam, the manager is a star!! As always going out of his way to ensure every one has a great time. Doesn't matter if you are on honemoon, vacation or a solo traveller, people connect at Adams bar! I cant wait to get back there again asap..!!
