Cozy resort not too far from Thongsala center. Bungalows were quite ok and clean. Few minuses: no hot water in the morning, awful thai karaoke in the middle of the night and a noisy fan. Cute dogs living in the hotel area, nice pool and good service. 600baht/night for a room with a fan.

I spent time a in few locations while I was in Koh Phangan but this place has got to be one of the best!!!. Fantastic large pool overlooking the ocean,great bar/club on the beach not to mention some very good honestly well priced food. I believe the new owners just took over recently and they have really made this place into something special!!!!. Will be back next year for an extended stay....Thanks a lot Holiday beach

un veritable cauchemar a tous les niveaux.............
All day music non-stop for nothing. I hate this plkace, and the room are really small and dirty.
They seem to not even care about other resort very peacefull all arond, just put music sometimes until 3-4 am with 2 customers. really a nightmare.
On vous aura prevenu !

Room Tip: go in another place. For the same price u can have much more quiet and beautifull

I have stayed here before and it was quite poor the new owners have turned the place into an absolute must for all visitors to the island.
Pool party's amazing.
Beach bar awesome.
Authentic Thai menu and western food for those pangs of home sickness.
Can't wait to return for Christmas.
I honestly could not fault my stay.
Thanks guys.

When I got to Koh Phangan I was booked in to stay at the Or Rawarn Resort which is two resorts up from Holiday Beach Resort. It was so horrible that I checked in and checked out the same day and moved over to Holiday Beach. From the minute I got there I enjoyed myself. Stuart, Woody and the very lovely Kim who run the resort were amazingly friendly and welcoming and I very quickly didn't want to leave.

The bungalows I stayed in while there were clean and comfortable. The pool was amazing and the food at the place was great. At night I would often enjoy myself sitting at their bar on the beach. Every Thursday they run a night at the bar with really good music which gathers a nice group of people to it.

The beach at Holiday Beach Resort is not the best beach. You have to go about 50 foot out from the beach before it gets deep enough to swim but for everything else that the resort has going for it I considered that a small price to pay. Renting a moped on the island is very cheap and the island is small enough that you are always only a few minutes drive from a decent beach anyway.

As I said in the title, I came to Koh Phangan for 5 days but I stayed for over a month. I would definitely recommend Koh Phangan as an island to visit and I would definitely recommend Holiday Beach Resort as the place to stay.

Woody, Stuart, Kim, I loved your place and you will definitely see me again!!

Great resort right on the beach fantastic bar/club on the beach front as well - great value for money staff are very very friendly. Fantastic location for full moon party but also quiet on the beach. Food and drink prices are very reasonable as well.

Stayed here just a couple of nights over full moon. Great Pool, biggest i've seen on the island, and nice big resort spread out, not right next door to everyone else. Great location but too far to walk to 7/11 or Thongsala. You get what you pay for basically. Like every other bungalow along Baan Tai beach. One little thing, the staff all seem rather grumpy, especially the girls behind Reception. Also the ceiling fan rotated and so had to move the bed into the middle of the room otherwise got very hot at night

Room Tip: Best to pay a little more and get a room near the pool
