This beautifully structured minimalist hotel is located perfectly on Koh Phangan's sunset beach. Just a 10 minute walk (lees than 5 in a taxi) to the main town Haad Rin it is close enough to the night life and shopping that surrounds sunrise beach, but gives you the choice to stay in the relaxing atmosphere that The Coast Resort provides.
The hotel is a pleasure to walk through and as you reach the end of hotel where the pool, bar and restaurant are located you are greeted with the stunning views of sunset beach and in the distance Koh Samui. Sunsets at The Coast Resort are truly special, there's something about the vibrant colours the sunset provides which reflect and sink into the infinity pool that make it a truly magical experience and memory. The best thing is you can view this sipping on one of their delicious cocktails whilst sitting in the pool itself (especially during happy hour, buy one get one free!).
My partner and I were lucky enough to stay in the suite, giving us the most spectacular view over the sea. Waking up to that view every morning was priceless, it just made you want to go out and explore the island straight away. Also in the suite you are provided with a well designed bathroom with a separate bath and shower. The view from the shower in the morning is quite special too. There's also a kitchen area with microwave (not that you'll need to use it, the food from their is magnificent), and a massive TV and sofa area. If it's in your budget it's definitely worth the extra money.
We also stayed in one of the garden rooms, which although was more basic than the suite was still a pleasure to stay in, both the bed and the shower were massive!
The staff at The Coast Resort are second to none! Always greeted with a smile and very helpful. They recommended the best things to do around the island and also helped us pick out some brilliant excursions.
I can't remember this particular member of staff's name, (he was British) but he deserves a medal after coming to save my partner and I from a jumping sider in our room!! Especially as he was scared of them too!
The barman James was fantastic, made the best cocktails and even let us adapt some of our own!
The General Manager, Adam, apart from his obsession with the cocktail cherries is an awesome guy! He really makes you feel at home at The Coast and makes a real effort to get to know you and make your stay as good as possible. He was always around to ask for advice and made it an even better holiday for us. THANKS!

Take good care guys, try to enjoy the cold of Blighty and we hope to see you both on Phangan again soon.
