“Made to feel at home in a quiet, simple surrounding.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We stayed in a non-air conditioned bungalow 'Turtle' for 3 days over the Full Moon Party this month.

We were welcomed in by the owner who was a very sweet lady, she gave us lots of accurate and helpful information about the island and her English was excellent.

The bungalow was comfortable, with an open air toilet at the back. Iit was basic, but kept in good condition.

The surroundings of the accommodation were a bit like a lovely jungle, and the back of the resort lead onto a quiet beach. We expected the room to be unbearably hot, as we had no air-con, but luckily the canopy of trees that sits above all the bungalows provided plenty of shade.

The location of this resort is brilliant, very easy to access everything you need. Lots of restaurants and shops within easy walking distance, although we hired a bike so we could explore the island further.

The best part of the accommodation was the friendly and helpful nature of the owner, she even took us in her truck the short distance to the pier when it was time to leave.

Booked this place a couple of moths in advance because we wanted to stay at koh phangang at end december beginning of january for the full moon party and new years.

We were looking to stay near the beach, but somwhere where there were things to do, at night but not in the middle of haadrin where there is partynoize all night long and where the beach is dirty from all the partying. We prefer small places, like guest houses or bungalows, and not to expensive. Allready a lott of place were full booked in july.

Oceanus location is good, it's on coast road were all the resorts and bungalows are. As it is located in the middle of the island the location is ideal to explore both North and south of koh phangan. Cab to haadrin 20 min 100 bath, cab to North 150 bath.Quite to sleep at night, but just a 10min walk form tongsala town and its delicious food market. They only have 5 bungalows and it feels like you are staying in the jungle. The bungalows are well maintaned, we had a fan and AC. In the front there is a little terrace and at the back the open air bathroom. he bathroom was really ok and there was always hot water. They provide toilet paper and towels.

Upon arrival to tongsala try to walk to the resort, or make sure you dont pay too much for a cab there as it is only a 5 min drive! Cabs dont know the resort and as it was dark we did had some problems finding it. Just tell the cabdriver to leave you at B52, just on the left of B52 walk through the gras, dirt road and you will see the oceanus water tower.

When we arrived there were problems with our reservation. But the lady was really friendly and everything got solved. She runs the place with her mom. They dont serve foord or have a pool or loungers on the beach, but for that you can go to one of the places next door. When are friends arrived unexpected everything on the island was allready full booked and the lady let them sleep on the big porch of the reception, which was really friendly.

The beach is ok, atlhough after the full moon and new years party you even see rubish floating untill here. But on the other days it is ok. Another place i would really recommend for young people is 2 places further and called phangan villas.

Stayed here for the Full Moon Party in July. Was warmly welcomed by the owner, and shown to our bungalow which was simple, but had everything we needed. Hot water, western toilet, and air conditioning (worth every cent extra!!!).

Very convenient location; we walked to the pier when it was time to leave!

On arrival tell your driver to take you to the b52 resort, because they don't know Oceanus! It's right behind b52; you'll see the sign once they drop you off :):)

Room Tip: Get the air con; that island is HOT! :)
