We booked New Years accommodation for a very reasonable price, and ended up staying two nights longer than we'd planned. A nice place right on the beach, not too far from town (a bit of a walk but fine if you plan on hiring bikes). About a 20min taxi drive from the full moon party, but one of the guys who worked at the resort was really nice and drove us to where we needed to go numerous times! Staff were very helpful and the beachside restaurant was awesome.
The only downside was that the water gets shut off overnight, quite a pain if you get home in the early hours of the morning and want a shower!
Also, beware of the monkey tied to the tree! He has as a fondness for shiny objects, and remarkably fast reflexes!
A good place to stay though, relaxing, quaint and affordable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Charm Beach Resort is a classic Thai beach resort with an authentic feel. The resort has been around for almost thirty years and is well known to the island. During this time the bungalows and the other building have changed, but the wonderful, relaxing beach has stayed the same. Today the resort is a perfect blend of tradition and modernity, with classic rustic beach huts complimented with AC, Wifi and a guest swimming pool. The resort contains 32 room and bungalows, and a popular restaurant. The centrepiece is an idyllic treehouse, set in one of the trees on the beach, with its own balcony for enjoying the sunset. We have one of the widest beach strips of any resort on the whole island. This is the where beach activities, such as yoga, beach volleyball, fitness classes, SUP boarding and massage, take place. In the evening we offer BBQs, music and cocktails in our beautiful beach bar. For the young ones, there's a playground in the shade, and we hold regular movie nights on the beach. We hope you come to visit us, and this marvellous place, on one of Thailand's most spectacular islands. There's so much more to Koh Phangan than the full moon party. Be sure to ask about special day trips that we offer to the jungle, the ocean or the mountains. The resort has been under new ownership since May 1st 2014 and is now managed by a Swedish-owned company who are undertaking a facelift and modernization of the resort. ... more less
