“Perfect Hoilday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Although we had a short stay in The Coast Resort we had an amazing time. The staff were very friendly and were more than helpful. The hotel pool was very picturesque and relaxing. The bar in the pool was an extra bonus. Every room standard or villa, was very modern and spacious and still really private. Location was perfect for the Full Moon party as Had Riin beach was only a short trip away. I would highly recommend The Coast Resort to anyone planning a trip to Koh Phangan.

Hey Lyndsey it's always great hearing that couples enjoyed their stay here at The COAST Resort and so I'm happy to hear that you and Anthony did just that. Particularly as this was during Full Moon as it shows that even during the island's festival week we can keep a good balance of responding to the FM feeling whilst keeping our usual relaxing and chilled out atmosphere. I'm sure you enjoyed our Sunset Sessions event held the afternoon before and day of the Full Moon Party but sounds like you mostly enjoyed the peace and quiet provided outside of this. We know that everyone loves to let their hair down but then we all need to relax either side of that.
We hope that next time you visit you can stay for longer and come another time of the month to truly experience Koh Phangan and truly relax.
Take care and thanks for your support.

My Wife and I had some of our fondest experiences and stays on our honeymoon trip to Thailand at The Coast ! The whole complex is very modern and clean. The staff went above and beyond with their help and all round kindness. The pool is great and having a bar attached to it is even better ! Food was also very good. We will be back for sure

The villa, you can't compete with it. The huge glass door opens up onto the deck which then leads into the infinity pool, then just over that is one of the cleanest and nicest beaches you could hope for. This place is truly paradise. The staff were courteous, efficient, funny and not too intrusive. The resort itself is spotless, so well kept and secluded enough to be quiet but still only a five minute walk from the main part of town. The ferry port is literally a 200 metre walk along the beach. The food is incredible with a nice mix of Thai and Western food. The cocktails are dangerously good also. We had alot of requests and the staff were always helpful.

Room Tip: The villa is to die for.

Hi Martin; great knowing that you found paradise on our island and with us ! But it's difficult not to enjoy life with a holiday spent in our villa. Saying that it is of course so encouraging to us knowing that life outside of the villa in and around the resort was also enjoyable. Your comments about our staff here are greatly appreciated and will only serve to motivate our team here to keep doing the positive things we're trying to achieve here. Thanks and hope to see you again at The COAST Resort.
PS Really looking forward to seeing your photo's taken during the beach camp-fire we had !

Personally I had a lovely holiday. Is a magnificent property ... "paradise" is all I can call it. Lovely pool, Lovely ambience and great rooms. Staff are definitely warm and friendly.. always taking an extra mile. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!!

Room Tip: During the Full moon I wouldn't suggest taking the rooms by the poolside.. :)

Hey Donabelle thanks for your kind words and positive feedback about The COAST Resort both direct to me and now here on Trip Advisor. Once again its great to hear when our guests have been happy with the facilities, have been treated in a warm and friendly way by our team and it is rewarding to know that the extra mile we try to take leads to you calling our resort paradise!
May I put a small caveat on your room tip? In that during the Full Moon Festival period the Poolside rooms are suitable those who want to be involved in the build up atmosphere as we host our poolside Sunset Sessions event 3pm-7pm the day before and day of Full Moon and of course of this period the pool is at its liveliest. However outside of these times the pool is very chilled and these room are then all about the views of the pool, the beach and the sea. So it depends on the period and wanted experience.
Thanks again, we look forward to your next visit and if your here during one of our next Sunset Sessions then hopefully we can have you perform and entertain our other guests. Take care.

The coast resort is a relatively new hotel (5months) and was found by chance when looking through top places to stay. Having been to koh phangan a few times before, and stayed on the full moon beach, we fancied something a little further a field and quieter. The Coast Resort is a 10 minute walk away from the centre of Haad Rin and is situated on Ban Tai beach. My initial enquiry and further correspondence was answered by Kamila. She was Very informative and kind. She met us at reception and checked us in smoothly. Another colleague won the toss to take us to our room, our bags were taken by another. On arriving to our room (sea view deluxe) we were greeted by a pool party with a Dj! Loads of people dancing/frolicking in the pool.. So we decided to join them and had some delicious cocktails with brilliant music! What a first impression! Everybody we encountered were extremely friendly, from housekeeping to the bar staff. The room was gorgeous, with an outside bath and glorious views of the pool and beach! The room itself was modern yet comfortable. Good quality linen and pillows. The air con was a life saver and turned our room into a little ice box. We had breakfast included, and on the times we managed to drag ourselves down, it was delicious and plentiful! Dinner also was good. Although the service could be a little slow. But we put that down to teething problems and to the fact the hotel was full!

A couple of things which I think could be done to improve things...
1, Somesort of shelf in the bathroom. There were 3 of us and all of our toiletries were left homeless. I get the minimalist theme, but a hidden cabinet or a glass shelf wouldn't intrude to much.
2, There were not enough sun loungers round the pool or on the beach. So unless you were up really early, you had to use the beach. They do provide beach towels though!
3, During happy hour the bar service was poor.. Especially on full moon day. As I have read in a previous review, poolside got served a lot quicker. Better organization is needed there.

Overall a fab place to stay, a little on the pricey side compared with other similar resorts but would highly recommend and will be visiting again in the future.

Ricky, Marc and lee.

Thanks for this review lads; from your thanks to Kamilla and your list of positives to your appreciated points for improvement.
Let me first touch on those. We've responded to your first point and have installed shelves into all bathrooms and we hope that we've done it in a way to compliment the minimalist design. The sun-loungers are on the way to us so we hope to have double the current amount available by July (2013) along with some cool bean-bag chairs to create some more chilled out spots and atmosphere. For the madness at happy hours we've set up a few procedures to help organize this a little more and a few more targeted promotions that not only give good deals to those at the bar but make life a little easier for the barmen.
I think next time you stay with us you may want to give us 6/5 and we hope you guys return so we can give that a try. Take care and thanks again.

Hi,

I came over to Koh Phangan for the first time, all the way from Dubai UAE. After reading previous reviews about the full moon party i was expecting a real scary experience as it was a wild beach party known all over the world. After staying in an amazing hotel and experiencing the safety and security of The Coast Resort, i was able to have a fantastic time and i cannot thank the Manager Adam and all his team enough for the best experience of my life. i am a flight attendant and i do travel all over the world and i can honestly say that this is one of the best hotel/resorts i have stayed at so far. There is nothing i can fault about this place. i stayed in room 08 for 11 nights in total.

The rooms was very clean and spacious along with a king size bed, a huge wall mounted TV, 2 showers and a bath tub also not forgetting our fridge/freezer mini bar that comes with complimentary water daily. Allot of the guests at this hotel travelled on from Koh Phangan after the May full moon party but as i loved it that much i stayed allot longer than i was supposed too. Even though the food took longer than expected to be served it was totally worth the wait. It may be the best food on the island for sure.

On 2 separate occasions i had problems with my shower but from the time of reporting the shower to the time the shower was fixed i must say it was around 10 minutes which is very quick. The maintenance was there to help straight away As a new and upcoming hotel The Coast Resort is the one and only place to be before and after the full moon party. The pool parties and DJ's are fantastic. Very lively and friendly place to be. This was recommend to me by a college from Emirates Airlines and now i am going to recommend this to all my friends, family and colleges in the future.

One word AMAZING, Thank you again for everything. I cannot wait to come back and visit you all again. X

Hey Jay; thanks for such a glowing review. Great to know that not only did you enjoy the Full Moon Festival period but also got to experience and love the other face of Koh Phangan. The chilled side. What I see as the real Koh Phangan. But that's what's so amazing about this island, that it hosts one of the worlds biggest and most famous parties and then provides the perfect relaxing tonic for it too. When the party's over and the masses move on you can almost feel like you have the island to yourself. Well, we're still here to keep our guests company and it feels good to know that being in our company gave you such a positive life experience. Thanks for that and thanks for your support. We cannot wait for you guys to come back and visit us again !
