“Nice Beach But Not The Snorkelling”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We did not stay at the resort but visited as our last stop for our full day snorkelling trip. This was our last stop and we arrived at 1530. Paid THB100 pp for entry. Plastic bottles and flippers were not allowed. There were many tourists waiting to depart at the time we arrived, so we were thankful. Not many people at the beach which was a relief. The beach is nice and soft, but we were disappointed with the snorkelling. Nothing much to see. Perhaps the fishes worked too hard for the day and are all home resting =) Sea was clear and nice to swim in though.

The only good thing about the island is the view (from the view point for example). Dirty beach and not comfortable for swimming. I would close my eyes on bad work if stuff and dirty ugly rooms (seems like they had never cleaned their carpets and toilets cause they are stinky!), but the price is too high for such a teribble hotel. The personal had broken our luggage and they also don't speak English at all.

Nice view. Clear water. The beach not so clean.

The restaurant: everything so expensive but no choice for ppl who stay there. There is only one restuarant on the island. The taste was just ok.

The room: i stayed there 3nights. First i stayed in the executive room (Q3)for 4800baht a night but its not executive like the name. Only with nice view from the balcony. Its so tired to get the room, the room so old, there are 2big rocks in room on the floor and its rough. You may get accident from them, Old TV,the bed is small and hard hard and dirty pillow, the floor a bit dirty, the bathroom is big and old style, the toilet seat broken so i asked them to fix it, So i couldnt sleep good for first night.
Then my husband had to upgrade the room to the beach villa one (D9) for 6000baht a night, the room is better than the one above, soft bed, i feel more clean, the water flow so slow and the bathroom a bit dirty and flood. The toilet smell bad and i saw some trace. I guess they never clean them. The AC not work so good and its hot in day time.

Service: their workers on island are from Burma. So for sure you will not get good service mind from them. They not clean the room during the day. They just came to make the bed. Thats it. We used same towel for staying there evryday.

So i dont recommend to stay here. Better you stay on koh tao and just come to visit koh nangyuan.

when we visited KOH SAMUI, we made one day trip to
koh phangan a day
angthong national marine park
koh tao, then stay in nangyuan, not back to samui. the agen agree to take our baggages

if u do '1day trip' u only spend 2 hours or 3 to relax and enjoy the stunning view on this island..

the manager (mrs) was helpful, arrange our ticket back to koh samui, transit phangan.
th

we can take a shoot at sunset. beautiful..
and enjoy the beach so quite, after plenty of people went home from visited their one day trip in nangyuan.

but, if u bring heavy baggage, make sure the porter help u carry.. u have to cross the sand/ and also hike.

nothing to do at night. just great and relax dinner. so spend all ur energy till sunset :p
climb to the view point of nangyuan.

Got one of the cheapest rooms ; 1500 bath for a fan bungalow is expensive, but you pay for the place.

The bungalow has holes in the walls and windows and isn't even equipped with a mosquito net (!).
The extra bed they made us pay 600bath for was a 1cm large futon...

But the view was amazing and it is extraordinary to be able to snorkle in Koh Nang Yuan when all the groups left the island (after 5pm and before 11am) ; so I'd suggest you go there and be prepared to waste money on a crappy accomodation.

Room Tip: If you chose one of these cheap rooms, the F5 that we got has a beautiful view.

We stayed here for one night. It was perfect. The room was nice and air conditioned. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was delicious and large and included. You can't Beat the location. Recommended for a short and romantic stay. Good Internet in the lobby only.

Tv had no English channels. Bathroom shower pressure was a little low, but still warm.

Room Tip: A view of the sandbars

We were only passing through this island however we were disgusted at is dirtiness considering it is a privatley owned island. In addition to this everything was overpriced including food, alcohol and the dive school on the island. It would be a rip off to stay here in general. There is alot of hype towards this island but we were stuck there for two hours and had enough after fifteen minutes, I would of been really disappointed with my holiday if I had of booked accommodation here.
