“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

A great little spot about 5 min drive from full moon party. Basic but all you need. The bungalows are quite cute and the surroundings very different, not a high-maintenance place which is what we loved about it, makes for the whole Thailand experience. The restaurant serves up wicked food with exceptional service from the manager, A. The western food served there was of high standard and the Thai food even better. Loved every minute

First up, my rating is based on our overall experience, not just the quality of the resort. The rooms are basic bungalows and have a nice balcony, ac and a fridge. The beach is shallow and calm but at low tide, the water retreats a fair bit.
The restaurant serves all types of delicious food and drinks and is very well priced.
And the staff are just lovely, in particular A. He is such a well mannered gentleman who is always smiling and wanting to make you feel welcome. About a 5 minute dive to haad rin if you want some bars/restaurants. Had a really nice stay.

Stayed there for 3 nights in May, was so lovely and peaceful and tranquil, the beach is private and very chilled out and the bungalows are perfect! The man who owns the place is a genuinely lovely guy who only wants the best for you and is so clearly grateful for the booking, as mentioned in previous comments it's family run so bookings obviously make a difference to the family. One note I'd make is that if you don't like dogs/are scared of dogs then I wouldn't stay because they do bark from time to time and when they did I thought it would be a huge problem for my brother who's scared of dogs, but if you don't mind them the place is paradise!

Some of the nicest people I've met in Thailand run this place, a wonderful family, 3 generations. They have a quiet and beautiful beach, they rent motorbikes, good food, everything you need.

I've stayed here more than once and always feel at home here.

I fall asleep to the sound of waves and crickets, I love it.

Room Tip: I like to not stay right next to the restaurant, but a couple bungalows away where it's totally...

hey people! So here is the thing :) I was in Thong Yang bungalows and they are really the best ones I ever been on Thailand :) Staff are really friendly and helpfull, you have your own private beach wich is quite away from the parties, but not to far away. If you rent a motorbyke you have only 5 minutes to the center. Bungalows are okey. For that price we paid around 700THB a beach front. Great view. you also have a refrigerator, in your room which is not that usual for that price :) It is a very good thing that you are away from the noise. I recommended a Thong Yang Bungalows.

When I looked for a hotel on Koh Phangan and read reviews on tripadvisor.com, I've took note to this hotel because it was number 1 in the category B & B. Now for some reason it has moved to the category Hotels and lost there in the third decade . Of course it is much more gesthouse or B & B, than a hotel.
Segment coast of the island less than 100 meters in length is limited on both sides by huge boulders . House of owners stands a little in depth between them. Kitchen and veranda is used as restaurant and reception. Behind the house and up the slope to the sides huddle over a dozen guest houses of different sizes. Bungalow's furnishings is modest - bed with a very hard mattress, fan on the wall , cupboard and fridge. In the bathroom are sink, hot water shower and toilet. If you want to use air conditioner, you should pay extra.
You get this bungalow for a very small price. Do not expect that this price includes daily cleaning of the room - you can do it by yourself, the room has a broom, daily replacement bed linen and towels, daily replenishment of refrigerator with water bottles and other attributes of the hotel service. But you get something more meaningful - a personal touch , as the presence in of a large Thai family life, representatives of three generations of which greeting you, cook your food , help address emerging issues. Yard of their home becomes a place of your stay - lying on the beach or in a hammock reading a book or working on the computer - anywhere on the territory is excelent WiFi.
When number of guests a little , it seems that this piece of land - yours, that you just visit friends in their country house and everything is only for you . It's an amazing feeling.

Got to start by saying some of the reviews below seem very dramatic. I didn't even consider suicide and if a fan isn't sufficient you really should consider a/c.

Thong yang is reasonably priced and although not perfect isn't bad. Me and my partner stayed here for 5 nights over the full moon party. We found it really peaceful and a great escape from the noise of the more busy parts. The room was sufficient and paying the extra for a/c is definitely worth it. There was also a fridge in the room which is handy.

The food was good and again reasonably priced but the service was terribly slow at times. There was a nice lounging area to the side of the restaurant with some nice cushions could probably do with a couple more though as only enough for two to sit comfortably.

We had one of the bungalows on the front. They are small but the bathrooms are fine, I would prefer a flushing toilet but it wasn't a major issue. The showers maintained a good temperature for as long as needed. I did find the porch area slightly cramped however as there was a bench on there but facing sideways rather than towards the sea due to lack of space which is a bit of a shame as can be nice to chill outside your room in the evening from time to time. There was one larger bungalow that allowed this so if you like to watch the sea in the evening it may be worth enquiring to see if you could obtain this room.

The dogs are on the most part fine, one in particular is pretty smelly and tatty but when the owners do see them near the eating area they do try to shoo them off. However a bit more vigilance with poo clearing wouldn't go a miss.

All in all this place is a nice stay very peaceful and friendly staff and a nice crowd. You feel like your belongings are safe also. So not perfect but not bad either.
