“Lovley place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here whilst I was in Koh phangan for the full moon party.

It is a 15 minute taxi ride from Haadrin, and its great if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of party central during the day when your hungover. The restuaraunt is amazing, the surroundings are peaceful and serene. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The owner is very kind and will take you to the full moon party, cash points and ferry port- if you need it.

Overall I could not fault this place at all.

My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights. The bungalows are situated on the beach front and in a garden setting. The staff are lovely and so friendly and would go out of their way for you. Free taxi to the port at the the of out stay. And the best thing about our stay was the food everything they made was amazing. The best Thai food I have tasted. I have never written a review on trip adviser before but I really thought this place deserved an excellent review. Would definatly go back.

Great place to stay, we stayed for 4 nights for the full moon party. Its a peaceful location away from the hustle and bustle of haad rin, but close enough to get a cheap taxi or moped in!

The food here was amazing, proper english breakfast and amazing thai food! The staff were amazing, very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. They took us to the port free of charge when we were leaving.

I would definitely recommend!

Cheap, by the beach, peaceful, great food, and the owner is really nice. You get a lot for your baht here and you're in a great location for several of the non-full moon parties (half moon, waterfall, jungle). What more do you need?

Stayed here mid July with a couple of friends. The bungalows are basic but always clean and well maintained. about a ten min taxi ride from the party center. The beach connected to the place is really nice. The food in the restaurant was pretty tasty and good for value. The owner Pong is probably the place's best asset, really chilled out and very accommodating. Great place to drink before the full moon party and the fridge was always stocked with beer.

Very cute bungalow beside the sea! Very homely. Great breakfast! The Mexican food is a little bland, but fresh. The guy who owns the place and his staff are really relaxed and friendly. The bungalows are basic, but clean and remind me of some American outback! You have your own porch and chairs. The beach is beautiful and next door resort has an infinity pool which we used. Couldn't recommend the place enough

one good thing about blue lotus is its location. it is accesible everywhere, 10 of minutes ride from the pier, close to had-rin and still quiet and peaceful.

another positive thing is the owner and the staff. they are very friendly and helpful. they are responding the mails regularly, giving rides to the town if you are leaving etc. also the food is surprisingly delicious and the prices are reasonable.

rooms are basic but spacious and clean. not spotless clean, but it was clean enough for a solo traveller like me. toilet, shower and all facilities were in decent condition.

beach is not the best on the island. the waters are usually shallow and the beach is very narrow. but during the high tides, it becomes swimmable and it is clean. also the scenery becomes very picturesque during the cloudy days where you can hardly notice the horizon line. a calm infinite gray everywhere...

another good thing is, you can rent and "trust" your motorbike from there. i had ridden a bike with no rear brakes in koh payam, but if you are riding in phangan, your bike must be tip-top... in short, for 200baht/day, you get a good bike with a full tank of gas and return it full (which is the thing every rent-a-bike place should do!).

if you want a serene place out of town with a nice beach to chill put, this is not your place. but if you'd like to rent a bike, reach everywhere and make yourself comfy in the midst of phangan party lunacy, this is a good, secure and affordable option.

Room Tip: take the room nearest to the sea, that's all :)
