“perfect restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I didn't stay in the hotel but preferred their restaurant to the one in my hotel. Just excellent place! Great food, friendly staff and amazing location straight on the beach. It seems to be get together place for the entire area in the evenings.

We stayed there for a night after the full moon party in Oct 2012. We checked in to the hotel at around 4 am (or may be even later) and the staff were welcoming (even though we disturbed their sleep) and showed us to our rooms. We were a group of 6 friends (3 couples) and had booked 3 rooms. Loved the rooms and the facilities. The staff were very friendly and even offered us late breakfast. There was some construction and maintenance work but it didn't spoil our fun... Love their private beach... Definitely going back!!

How on earth could anything go wrong with our stay when your host is named Banana! She was delightful, friendly and awaited our arrival by speedboat (a definite recommend to anyone) on the beach. She even contacted our next hotel on Ko Tao to arrange our pick up there.
Buri Rasa itself was perfect, great rooms, awesome beach and plenty of other restaurants to go to besides their own Beach Club which has wonderful sea front tables. As mentioned in other reviews, the hotel is still under construction and you will notice it, so if you like perfect quietness this might not be the place for you, however the lower rates make up for that.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are definitely great. We had room number 5 which was next to the beach club and w...

We booked through expedia android app which stated (still does) that the swimming pools are open and no mention of building work. I was obviously disappointed at check in to find out that the pools are still being built and that building work was taking place. however........dont let either of these 'problems' cloud your view of this hotel. The manager dealt with my frustration in a totally professional manner and instead of staying for the 2 nights as booked we ended up staying for 5!!

The rooms are gorgeous, the beach is surely the best on Koh Phangan, the food was varied, always tasty and good value and the staff were exemplary! Infact,we left a thank you card expressing our gratitude - that's a first for me!

The buri rasa went out of their way to make sure that we had a good time on our trip. The receptionist Banana was able to plan our whole trip for us while in phangan. The food at the hotel is reasonably priced and delicious. The breakfast is included and excellent quality. Every night we had desserts delivered to our room from the chef. This hotel is still under construction but it appears it is almost complete, so the pool was not open as of October but it is located right on the beach so we were able to still get some sun and relax. The hotel is secluded if you want to get away; but has a nice little street of shops, restaurants to eat or spas to get a massage. If you want to go elephant riding or zip lining it is about 30 min away in a taxi so it is farther from most tourist attractions. If you just want to lay on the beach this is the perfect place for the price. I would stay with buri rasa again in the future.

We loved Buri Rasa, especially the restaurant/bar ambiance on the beach, the lovely staff, the tasty cocktails (try the mojito), the cheap drinks at happy hour, the village, and did I mention the fabulous staff. We could not resist their Gorgonzola pasta dish, we loved it so much we had it three nights in a row!! The café was great and served the same drink and food at reduced prices as it is not on the beach. They also put on a show every week, we saw the fire show by the same guys who do the full moon party – they were excellent. We visited this beach twice during August and September, every night visiting the beach club bar happy hour for their fabulous drinks (delicious mojitos).

The second time we stayed at the hotel as part of the soft opening we got a good deal for Agoda for Buri Rasa at NZ$100 and stayed 4 nights in a lovely room overlooking the village. The turn down service was a lovely touch, the breakfast was fantastic, so many delicious choices and did I mention how fantastic the staff were.

Only complaints - I know this was a soft opening but the room was just not finished, the room had a lack of lighting so much that you could not read inside the room at night. The bed was up against the wall and the room was small for the price. Also it had rained the night before and there was some rubbish in the sea, I preferred Thongtapan end of the beach to swim. Noi is our favourite all round location to stays in Koh Phangan, its swimmable all year around, silky white sand, many fabulous restaurants, accommodation to meet everyones budget and it has Buri Rasa restaurant, bar and staff for great beach front cocktails and dining.
