“Nice location, great food and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a great experience. Big, slightly basic room, though had everything we needed (especially given the price which is very reasonable). Warm showers and very good AC. The food was excellent (amongst the best we've had in Thailand) and the dining/chill out area is right on the beach so great place to relax. The owner, Pot, is a really nice guy and arranged our trips/transfers etc for us, which was a great help. In a quieter area, so if you did want to visit the 'livelier' parts of the island, you would need to get a taxi/tuk tuk, but this does mean the resort is always quiet and peaceful.

I have been to stay here on three different occasions now and every single time feels like the first. Simply stunning. Pot, the owner is the dictionary definition of legendary. He is the waiter, the travel agent, the guard, the photographer, the comedian, the painter and if you become lucky enough through friendship...your taxi too. The list is endless and I haven't even started on his place! White sand beach for miles, volleyball and beach front lounge area with bean bags and hammocks and the little huts/rooms are just bliss. I never want to leave. He makes this the most relaxing experience in the world. Forget the Maldives, forget the Virgin Islands. Pot's v-view is exquisite. Only place I would ever consider staying in Koh pha ngan. Cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms opposite the social area. A little more expensive but the best of the bunch!

My girlfriend and I came here from Haadrin beach following Full moon Party.
We stayed in an air-conditioned cabin with a private ensuite.
The room was great, it had a huge double bed and the bathroom was very clean. It helps a lot that the bungalow had a hammock!
The common area on the beach was very comfortable and had good cheap beers and reasonably priced food; although the serving sizes are rather small.
The owner was great too, very helpful and kind.

Room Tip: Get a room with an air conditioner, one of the newer bungalows with dark wood exterior.

Nice place at the beach, and not too far away from Thongsala.

Bungalows with a fan are small and simple, it is better to take one with the air-con, as those are new, comfy and bigger.

Food at the restaurant is moderate, but portions are tiny. Better to go some neighbourhood resort for a snack, for example at CoCo they have better kitchen.

I stayed here in July this year (amazing time- please see my original review)

I came back with the intention of staying a few days, but my travel plans changed and I could only spend a day on Ko Phangan. I came and just had some lunch and enjoyed relaxing on the Hammocks on the beach.

I met some of the staff who I had seen last time and it was great to be back! Location, food and warmth of the staff was still the same and I know I'll be back again.

Highly recommended and Baan Tai beach is so much calmer and chilled out than Haad Rin (Full Moon beach). Recommended for singles, couples or families to meet friendly , like minded travellers :)

while koh phangan island itself wasn't the most picturesque part of thailand, v-view was certainly one of the best places we stayed in during our travels. spacious bungalows which are a tad dark but the fact that they are literally on the beach with hammocks swinging from the trees totally makes up for it. most of the time the beach is peaceful and we had it to ourselves. there is a lovely food/chill out area laden with huge bean bags and cushions you could lounge around on for as long as you like.
the owner, pot, was amazing and allowed the chill out area to be turned into a cinema at night at our request so we could watch films on the large tv. he even went out at 6am to buy cigarettes for my drunk friend!
while the resort is generally quite calm, during full moon period this all changes. we hadn't anticipated the massive increase in price for all accommodation on koh phangan during this time, but when we turned up and were told there were no rooms we could afford, pot kindly said we were welcome to sleep on the chill out area for 200 baht. he then went above and beyond this by supplying us with tents and blankets for those sleeping in hammocks. the entire place comes alive and fills up with travellers as pot brings out countless tubes of brushes and glow in the dark paint and joins in with everyone painting patterns on each other, drinking and playing music. obviously, this isn't ideal accommodation for families during this time but for travellers it is the social peak of their trip as they will be mixing with about 100 more of their kind. then, as if it couldn't get better- free ride from the resort to the full moon party!
despite the party atmosphere, the place still remains laid back in the sense that the next day, feeling far too bad to get up and make the boat back to the mainland, pot allowed us to sleep on the bean bags for another night.
i would recommend this to all travellers, solo or in a group, and will definitely be staying there again should i be on the island

Great location away from the main strip but close enough to get involved in the evenings.
Great food served all day by the host and his family.
Safe and friendly with a good chance to meet other travelers.

The USP however is the host "Pot", once of the nicest guys you'll meet and he has plenty of bantz/jokes to keep you constantly entertained.

A great choice for Koh Phangan.
