“Great option but a smile would have been nice!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Great option. Beach is lovely and not far from boat. The bungalow are basic but fine and clean. The pool is little but really handy for kids as the bungalow are facing the pool so we can keep a look.
Amazing for kitesurfing. The beach is beautiful.
The food is cooked from scratch and is v tasty. Although go for the Thai option because as for everywhere in Thailand they try to westernise the food for us and the results are ok but not as good as their Thai meals.
Now I am the kind of person that gets really upset if people aren't friendly. The owner always Seemed to give looks and we never knew if we were welcome or not.. Not very smiley and always commenting in Thai. So on the welcome level it's a zero. What a shame!

Room Tip: A bungalow is facing see and has a bigger terrace.

Music all day long, owner's kids screaming in the resort and pool.
Impossible to stay in bed in the morning or having a nap.
Bathroom is disgusting, fan is very dusty and not rotating anymore, broken toilet seat, very old and not confortable bed, no place to store your stuff.
Wifi not always on and very slow.
The owner is barely speaking english.
Too bad because there is a great beach.

Lovely pool and little lounge/bar/restaurant. Staff very laid back. Clean. Average bungalows. Beach very quiet and laid back.
Multiple little beach bars/restaurants within 5 min walk on the beach. Family friendly, good tunes, beach fire, and great place.

We booked a week stay here over new year, firstly it was hard to find but it is just before the Amsterdam bar (approx 200/300metres) on the left, next door to shambala resort.
We booked the beach front villa which was a little over priced but any problems we had they were sorted immediately. There is a westerner helping there who was lovely and helped us with any issues we had.
Nice music was played from the bar and the owner and her mother (I believe) were fantastic chefs and every meal we had was great.

We then moved to a fan room for the extra nights we stayed and was much better value for money, they helped with taking us to the docks when we left also.
They have bikes to rent and it's in a very good location. When I return to koh phangan this will be my first choice of resort.
Lastly the only problem we had was that the owner lets her kids play in the swimming pool which was a little loud and seemed to happen everyday but I still believe this resort deserves a 5 star rating.

If your after a good place to stay on a lovely beach then Pimmada hut is worth a stay. They have a range of fan and air con bungalows but the big draw card is the beach front pool. The staff are friendly and can assist with local tours etc.

Next door is possible to hire water sports or just sit in the nice restaurant and watch the sunset.

Pimmada hut is suitable for travellers who want a chilled out time- a mixture of families and solo travellers stay here. The young backpackers who go to full moon party are not found on this beach. Its a cool crowd who are after a relaxed / chilled out vacation.

If you want to go to the big 'full moon party' its not that far away in a shared baht bus.

Room Tip: Theres a really nice triple room above the restaurant which is beach front with amazing views. Other...
