“Stunning resort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This resort is fantastic. Great location, allowing you to relax by the beach or infinity pool, very clean modern rooms, yummy food and very friendly staff - James in the pool bar was awesome and made the best cosmopolitan cocktails! I can not fault this resort at all. Highly recommended.

Hi Julieanne thanks for your review and support. Its quite easy all this; we just get James and the bar staff to ply our Guests with drinks and then your all happy :P
On a serious note it's great to see that we ticked all your boxes at a 5-star level and that we did not let you down.
Your appreciation is much appreciated.
See you again !

The COAST is a sleek, stylish hotel close to Haad Rin beach in Koh Phangan. While it lacks much "Thai" character, the hotel is clean and comfortable, with an awesome staff.

-Location: the hotel is around 15 minutes walking from the partying at Sunset beach. The property's private beach is rocky and not very good for swimming, but there are comfortable chairs and cushions for relaxing.
- Room: going for a modern look, but it comes off as a bit stark. Other than that, absolutely no criticism. The beds were comfortable, shower had excellent pressure, A/C worked great.
- Amenities: really nice gym with modern equipment: treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, free weights and weight machines. The pool was also really nice: infinity with a swim-up bar. When we were there, the hotel was not very crowded so we never had issues getting a seat by the pool/beach. However, when we checked out, the hotel seemed to be filling up and seating was an issue.
- Wifi: internet was pretty good (by Thailand standards) and worked consistently.
- Food: The breakfast was great, with a wide selection of fresh fruits, eggs, pancakes, bacon, etc. For lunch/dinner there are Thai and international menus. Although we opted for Thai most of the time, the western options were very good - a nice break.
- Front desk: really friendly and nice! They had good advice on restaurants and nightlife and spoke excellent English.

Hey Josh glad to hear that you had a perfect few days of fun and sun in KP as that's what holidays are all about; enjoying some carefree time in the sunshine. We can't always promise sunshine but we can guarantee that we do our best to make sure our Guests enjoy themselves.
And it seems the things that are in our control you've given us top marks; so thanks.
One comment about the room seeming a little stark is one that we have taken on board from your and one or two other reviews and we are currently looking at solutions to liven up the room whilst keeping true to the overall design concept. Thanks for your contribution to improving our resort and we hope to see you again for an even brighter stay.

Thanks for your review and positive comments.
We've also looked at your comment regarding the noise from the rain due to the rain falling from the roof above onto the skylight roof in your shower-room. We have now installed a more effective gutter that should ensure peaceful nights in addition to your relaxing days in future.
Regarding our ponytailed barman this is our main barman James. We are very shocked to hear this as as you will read on this site alone James is quite liked by our Guests but rest assured we have shown him your comments and he is fully apologetic for any illmannered behaviour he may have shown you. He has a complimentary cocktail waiting for you on the house.

We stayed here for two nights when the island was quiet (i.e. no Full Moon Party). First of all, we wish we had just skipped this island and spent more time on Koh Tao. But this resort is not bad. A great pool with swim up bar. Made watching the sunset really fun, and everyone at the hotel seemed to be there. The room wasn't great, though. Bed was okay (softer than normal in Thailand), drab room. The bathroom wasn't great and had no ventilation at all. Overall, I didn't think the room was worth $90 but it was one of the nicer hotels we saw on the island.

There's also a great restaurant across the street. I would go there rather than eat at the hotel.

Dear Ryan we're sorry to hear that our resort or island wasn't entirely to your liking and that you realized too late that KP off full moon is a completely different experience; its more about chilling out and relaxing as the party people move on to Koh Tao, Chaweng in Samui or even Koh Phi Phi.
Good to hear that you at least enjoyed sunsets from the pool and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Thailand.

Stayed at The Coast during Full Moon Party time in August 2013. Very laid back, cool and trendy decor. Staff are extremely friendly always stopping to say hello, even the owners are welcoming and always up for a chat! Rooms are very spacious, clean and very modern. The beds are SO comfortable!! The grounds are beautiful with cool bar and pool as well as private beach perfect for relaxing. Breakfast was not warm however still a good selection. Easy to get a taxi outside for travels around the island. Will definitely stay again!

Dear Katarina and Mandalena may I say that with 4/5 but with the title "Best of the best" says that you guys are hard to please :P
Joking aside its pleasing to see that you appreciate the atmosphere we try to create here from the owner through to the operational team; in that stopping to even simply say hello makes the world of difference. We'll look forward to saying hello (or sawadee) again in the future and we're glad to report that the hot-plates have finally arrived to warm your breakfast and give you an even better start to your bright days with us.
See you in 2014 !

We stayed at this hotel over the last full moon party and had a great time. The staff are really what make this hotel amazing. The Manager in particular was really nice and knows how to look after his guests.

Once you get off the pier at Haad Rin we were picked up by the hotels complementary shuttle which is a short 5 minute drive to the hotel. Check in was simple and easy.

The hotel itself is a very modern, the rooms are trendy and pool and beach area is nice and clean. The beach is not the best in KP but is certainly easy to sunbath on. We were upgraded to a suite which was a really nice touch and that room was outstanding overlooking the sea. The sunsets here on a good day are amazing!

The breakfast in the morning was delicious with hot and cold food and freshly prepared until 10.30am so no rush to get up and it was a short walk along the beach to the main town.

If you want to go to the full moon party then it is easy to walk to but you can escape the madness of it all if you so wish.

To really appreciate KP you need to hire a bike and go around the island. The beaches on the South West and North East are the best. I think we hired a bike for the day for about £2.50 GBP ...not bad at all. The better beaches are by far at those ends of the island. I think were were able to see half the Island in a few hours and there are some nice resturants and views along the way. We also took a boat to the harder parts to get to which was the North East of the island, ie bottle beach. That again was not too expensive.

We did eat out a few nights but in all honesty KP town has everything although it was slightly lacking in up market resturants.

If you are going to stay here make sure you take lots of mosquito repellant, this is not the hotels fault there just appeared to be a lot of mosquitos around KP generally.

I really would recommend The Coast Resort, the people are really friendly and cannot do enough to help you. I would certainly return there if I ever went back to KP.

Biggest thanks to the Manager who made our stay extra special.

Room Tip: Room 79.... really god views!!

Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed commendation of our resort and team Kelly and thanks for the comments towards myself too. For me its easy to look after our Guests as I've been a holidaying Guest too and so know what's important and how much holidays matter. I simply then try to pass this onto our team. Add to that a trendy resort and we've hopefully got a winner :D
As for the island your recommendation to get a bike and explore KP is spot on; this is my top tip too. Even for beginners, KP (off Full Moon) is one of the best places to learn. And the views you can find are breathtaking; they're nearly as good as the views from Room 79 :p
Take care and hope to welcome you back to our island again sooner rather than later.

Great location, beautiful set up and nice design. This hotel is one of the newer ones on the islands and a welcoming one indeed. The rooms are small but convenient. The gardens perfect and you are right next to the beach. It only takes 10 minutes by foot to walk to where the action is, meaning that you are close enough but not too close (noise wise). We hope for many happy returns.

Thanks for your support and its good seeing that more and more people appreciate the beauty of our location; only 10 mins away from the action of Haad Rin town and Sunrise Beach but hidden away on the sunset strip making you feel like your in the most secluded place possible. Unless its Full Moon of course and then everywhere steps up a gear. But for the rest of the month its an absolute perfect getaway for couples like you guys. We wish for many happy returns too.
