“Relaxing days!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We stayed for 5 nights, and had the bungalow with aircondition. The rooms are clean, bathroom very simple, but the rooms are nice, however there were blood spots on the mosquito net.
Nevertheless we had a fantastic stay. You leave your house and immediately are on the beach! It is quiet cheap and staff is really friendly. There is a red, friendly dog with the name Buddy, that became our friend. He liked to go with us to the ocean. You can't snorkle there but the water is like a bathtub and you feel the tides. So for swimming you need to go further into the sea.

The beach is very nice. You have plenty of restaurants to choose from but it is very relaxing and calm!

We loved our stay at the Baan Panburi, it was a great location and great price. As a family of six my husband and 4 children ages 4,5,6 and 11 we booked two beach front rooms. Both of these huts had a double bed and a day bed. We were happy to have one parent in each of the huts over night with the children we didn't feel it was safe enough to leave the children alone in a hut by themselves. But it may have been ok you never know. We made it work.

There was no TV or minbar fridge. We didn't miss having the TV as the kids seemed to spend most of the time playing on the beach or with Ting the resort manager. He was great, the kids went with Ting exploring the beach while we watched on from our deck chairs. The resort staff were very friendly and they we very accommadating in cooking plain food for our children. The kids favourite meal which sounds very boring was steamed rice and plain fried chicken. The staff loved our kids and they often kicked the football around with them outside our huts they would do our girls hair in braids. We also got free transfers to the other beach in the back of the work ute which the kids loved.

We missed having a minibar fridge as we couldn't keep any drinks we brought from the supermarket cold. In saying that the drinks from the resort were cheap enough. Just to give you an idea of cost of food and drinks: Large bottles of water were 40bht, A Chicken sandwich was 90bht, BLTs 110bht, Hamburger 120bth, hot chips 90bht, Garlich bread 80bth. The thai food 130bht for something like chicken green curry on rice. Happy hr from 5 til 6:30 Large beer 80bht small beers 50bht cocktails 110bht.

One of my highlights was no housework or laundry. We just gave a large bag of laundry in the morning and I think it was something like 40bht per kg the clothes were washed and nicely folded. The accomodation was basic but we did have the luxury of airconditioning not just a fan, for a family of six it was cheap and cheerful we paid 2000bht for the two huts a night no extra cost for children using the day beds. They didn't have bed linen for the day beds when we asked they just gave us an oversized towel to use as a blanket. Which was ok as it didn't get cold. The kids had to get use to the idea of not putting the toilet paper into the toilet. Next door at the dolphin is a great place to get coffee and listen to some relaxing music.

Overall we enjoyed our time there and happy to recommend the place if you are looking for a relaxing place to stay, that is clean and has friendly staff. Great value for money.

What a perfect little hotel with the sweetest little cheap bungalovs.On the best beach of the whole island. The staff is so sweet, helpfull and fantastic! The food in Baan Panburi, is the best on the beach, authentic thaifood. Amazing view, the sweetest little town. The hotel has 2 sweet dogs, that makes the place even more charming. There is room for anyone! They love childeren, which is really nice to see. We had so many plans, but they all changed when we got here to this paradise, and we stayed here the whole time. i would describe is as primitive luxury

Room Tip: You can choose if you want ac or just fan. Not fitness center and no pool, but sho needs a pool with...

Extremely cheap, however you certainly get what you pay for. Stayed in a basic room. Toilet and shower was deplorable. We felt dirtier after our shower than before.

We stayed for four nights and had already arranged a transfer to the hotel with their own transport. We spent the next 30 - 40 minutes rolling around the back of a pick up truck along with cases of beer and the hotels daily shopping. If you are familiar with the Island then you will know that most of this journey is on dirt track roads. We were filthy by the time we arrived at the hotel.

The staff were very dismissive. Arriving at the restaurant, we were ignored until approaching them at the desk. If they weren't ignoring us then they were pre occupied with children.

The food was just ok, not very authentic as they describe on their website. I got mayo as dip for a thai starter. One of only 4 Thai starters on the menu.

Canoes are provided however they were leaking and only one paddle for two canoes.

If you come here for the food then I would not only avoid this hotel but avoid this whole resort. If you have already booked, the only thing worth doing is easing the pain by spending your nights in YAI bar. Lovely staff and owner and great fire show.

Thong Nai Pan itself is extremely expensive. If you are visiting the island for the first time I would suggest you stay in the south.

This is a long due review: we arrived at Baan Panburi very late, past 11pm with 2 small kids because our flight from Bangkok was delayed. Oak, the reception manager, welcomed us and arranged for us to have a meal even though the kitchen was already closed. I cannot recommend the staff enough. Traveling with kids are much easier when you have lovely people around like them. We booked for 4 nights but ended up stay 11 nights. And every evening they worked beautifully putting up barbecue restaurant , like a clock. Food was delicious and perhaps the best on the beach. And the juices the best for sure. Try the papaya juice there. The staff is fantastic and we didn't find better in our month on the beach. We hope to go back soon!!
