“Best place in Haadrin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

The Palita lodge is a great place to stay. The location of the resort is wonderful- at the far end of the sunrise beach, so your very close to the the main street of the village, but not too close so the no ice of the night beach parties doesn't bother you at all. One of the best things about the location of the resort, is how close it is to the best and most beautiful beach of Haadrin. Just a few steps away...

The stuff of the hotel is very kind, gives service with an eternity smile, makes you feel like your the most important guest they have.. They are lead bu Sou, the resort owner, she is definitely one of the most amazing women I met in Thailand.

The resort itself is beautiful, with a great swimming pool, and really big a comftarble rooms. I had a 2nd floor room with view to the pool, it was a bitt expensive- I next time I will stay there (and there will be a next time!!) I will choose a different room, since they are all at the about same size, but other rooms were much cheaper.

I cant finish this review without a few words about the restaurant of the resort. I truly believe that it's one of the best thai restaurant I ever ate at. I warmly recommend it.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

I stayed with a group of eight friends for five nights during the full moon party. From the moment we arrived it felt like a home away from home. It's a family run, and you are certainly made to feel welcome.

When we encountered difficulty getting off Koh Phangan, there was no problem extending our booking and we were even given an upgraded room at no extra cost. The food was great quality and very reasonable and we found ourselves eating all of our meals there. We were also celebrating a birthday and the staff went above and beyond in marking the occasion.

I honestly could not say anything better about Palita Lodge. In terms of location, it's right on the beach but far enough away that you can sleep soundly. The pool and rooms were great and kept to a great standard.

All in all, if your looking for great accommodation in Koh Phangan, stop looking now because you would be hard pressed to top Palita Lodge.

I stayed at palita lodge for 3 nights and I enjoyed every minute of it ! I stayed at the pool room on the second floor and it was a great room and very clean! The staff are great and very thoughtful and I never met such a wonderful staff in any hotel in the world!
If you go to koh phangan you must stay in this hotel!

We stayed there for 5 nights on our honey moon. Great places, superb personal, the staff treated us as we were family. We will sure come back.
For people who are looking for a totally quiet place, this is not the place, because of the noise the coming of the beach.

We have stayed one night at the suite in Palita hotel for about 4000B (not during full moon).
The room was very spacious and clean. It had a big bath and hot tub.
Location: very good, just at the corner of the beach which you can take taxi boats to different locations. Located at the end of the main street but far enough from the noise.
Our main problem was with the roof which was partly transparent. The intention was nice but it was a problem early in the morning when the light came through and it was difficult to stay asleep.
Another problem was that there is no safe in the room.
Also, hot water ran out when we tried to fill the hot tub…
Breakfast was good, the staff was very friendly and the atmosphere in the hotel is very positive.
To conclude, good location however we think the room is a bit overpriced especially when there are better alternatives in that price range (we stayed the next three nights at Surikantang resort in a pool access room which was great and at about the same rate) .

We stayed here for the Full Moon Party in August. On arrival the staff couldnt have been more helpful and we were checked in with ease. They even gave us a free lunch to compensate for the previous nights stay we had missed due to flight delays from London.

We stayed in one of the smaller rooms, and it was perfect. Had everything you needed, the cleaners also light a oil burner to fragrance your room.

The breakfasts were plentiful and were always delivered with a smile. We had lunch at the restaurant and again the food was lovely.

The facilities are good - pool is imaculate however in peak season I imagine there wouldnt be enough loungers. However the beach is just at the end of the hotel and is perfect for lazy days lounging.

Room Tip: If staying over a full moon party, ask for a room further away from the beack to avoid any noise dis...

This was in a differnet league to the other places I stayed in Thailand - and the price reflected that but it was worth it.

Rooms were lovely. Despite the entire place being right on the Full Moon beach - the bungalows were seculded and quite - even on the night it's self. Its the perfect location - just far enough from the action to be plesent when you give up!

Great pool and bar area right by the beach.

Staff were wonderfull - so friendly and helpfull at all times. Highly recomend this place.
