“Excellent Relaxation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

My partner and I stayed at the Nice Sea Resort at the end of our Thailand travels. The Nice Sea Resort is a wonderfully run family owned resort. We went to Koh Phangan for the full moon party and were a little concerned that we would have no time to relax. However, the Nice Sea resort was in a very nice area with its own beach front. The rooms were exquisite new cabins on the beach. The area was quiet and very personal which was exactly what we needed to finish our trip and return home. The resort is actually approximately 30-45 mins away from the party area. That being said Mr. Nice (owner/manager) arranged for transportation for all the guests wanted to attend the full moon party. He gave us advice for staying safe and instructions on how to get home. Mr. Nice and his family were very warm people and added a very personal touch to the feel of the resort and our stay. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable at the resort and assist us with our needs during our stay. I would definitely stay at the Nice Sea Resort again and would recommend!

it is far if you interest haadrin parties. it is great for people who want to relax but I dont advise it for people who wanna party mostly in haadrin. but I think if you manage to drive a motor bike any time would be great. food is nice and it is really quite place. taxi from the hotel cost 150 baht to thongsala then you have to catch governmental taxi to haadrin ,, however , there is a taxi stop outside the hotel close to the shops ,you can get taxi directly to haad rin for only 200 baht ,

We had a great time at nice sea resort. It is a quiet place but absolutely beautiful. The restaurant is good as well. You can rent a scooter and explore the island. Our bungalow was clean and the airconditioning was working well. We would definitely go back!

We stayed in nice sea resort in November 2012, we were collected from the port by mr nice which was good as I'd lost my backpack on the ferry. Mr nice and his family couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome, he took me to the shops to buy new clothes and the police station to report my bag being taken, and when it did finally turn up at the port 5 days later, he drove me there to collect it.
The whole time we were on koh phangan it rained, I'd lost my bag but mr nice and his family made this a enjoyable experience, I will never forget their kindness.

I can't believe that there are so many amazing reviews for the Nice Sea Resort. Did you all stay at the same place that I did? We had a Standard Bungalow and paid $76 USD per night, which included breakfast.

This was in a good location but the bungalow was just awful. It smelled like urine, was stained, mold-ridden, not updated, and just not clean at all. The door was unsafe since it had been damaged at the lock site. We stayed here for almost a week and I was so uncomfortable just to be in the room.

Please, look at my pictures if you are considering staying here. For the same amount elsewhere, you can have a much nicer experience. We paid $30 USD at another resort and were much, much happier.

The positives here were the location (if you like a somewhat quiet spot with some things close by) and the food. The food was good and reasonably priced.

I absolutely LOVED this place. It is a family run small resort offering a room and a private section of beach where you can relax away from the hustle and bustle. We had a great room with air con, double bed,

The great thing was the family has a small restaurant where they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. All traditional Thai home cooked food of nice quality. Also they things like fries and toasted sandwiches, again all prepared fresh to order. I really loved the homey feel of the place and I will definitely be going back!

Thanks to Mr Nice and the family!!

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. We stayed in both a fan bungalow and aircon bungalow due to a mix up.

Fan Bungalow
Not bad at all as far as basic fan bungalows go. Had a bed and a rotating ceiling fan in the main room. The toilet wasnt a flushing toilet and the shower was cold. No mosquito net around the bed as advertised when I booked so I did get bitten a lot by mossies. It had a nice outside balcony area with chairs and 2 hammocks. The curtains also didnt fit the windows so was very light in the morning. Room was clean though.

Aircon Bungalow
Was really nice and has many windows so is very light and airy. There was furniture in the bed room like bed side tables, wardrobes and a comfy bed. The shower was a hot shower and the toilet was a flushing toilet. The balcony was nice with a hammock and chairs. The only thing we found was the room lock wasnt particularly secure.

General Info
The bungalows themselves are on a beach and so can be fun dragging bags along the sand. The family that run the hotel are very friendly and kind and Mr Nice speaks very good English if you have questions. The food in the restaurant is good and reasonably priced. The location of the place is in a little village with a few restarants and 7/11. The hotel is located on a quiet beach away from the parties but in driving distance if you want to go. The taxis drive past regularly if you need one into the town. Thong Sala is about 15-20 mins away (150 bahts) and Haad Rin is about 30-35 mins away (200 Bahts).

We found the prices of the bungalows expensive for what they were really. The fan was 750 bahts and the Aircon is 1500 bahts/night. And we were a bit annoyed that the resort passes all costs onto the guests (e.g cost to pay by paypal or costs to pay by card or cost to book through booking.com).

Overall a lovely place to stay and we reccomend it if you want a good hotel in a quiet location,
