“Perfect hotel on koh phangan, good value for money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is not very expensive even for the full moon party if you book long time before coming. We had the basic room (garden view bungalow) and it was really nice. The room is quite small and the TV is very old but when you are in Koh Phangan, you are always outside, on the beach, by the pool... So it does not really matter. Housekeeping is perfect, quick and efficient. Breakfast is really good (pancakes are yummy!). And the location could not be better. We were here for 5 nights so we enjoyed the full moon party which was on the haad rin beach. Really fun! But if you are not interested into partying, you might be disturbed by the loud music in bars close to some bungalows during the night. Our bugalow was perfectly located (#206). We enjoyed our stay very much, the restaurant is good and cheap. The staff is really nice but sometimes they have troubles inderstanding you because they do not speak english very well, which is totally normal actually!
I would totally recommend this hotel.

Amazing for the full moon party! Just enough down from all the action to get good sleep. Brilliant really made our stay best hotel whilst in Thailand! Food amazing and good prices too especially for a touristy Area! One day we had the seafood dinner which they went out to catch in the morning! This worked out expensive as the wine we had was £16 a bottle!!!! Think they just tried to make their money up here! Amazing stay I would stay again anytime! Beach the best we visited in a thailand!
Full moon party.... Imagine Glastonbury on a beach with no rain! It's just brilliant!

Room Tip: We had 4 rooms near the top and they were all good... Our room was the biggest but can't rember...

It took all day travelling to get here and as soon as we got into the beach front room it was worth it! The balcony is set up with chairs and a small table facing the water, which is lovely in the afternoons. The room is a decent size with a day bed by the window, a small bench top with coffee,tea and water which also doubles as a vanity bench. The bathroom is divided up with the toilet and sink in one part and the shower separated by another door. A fully stocked mini bar in the room which is reasonably priced.
You can either swim in the sea in front, which is pretty shallow or use the pool which has more shade. There is a pool table and table tennis to keep you entertained around the pool. Its only a short walk into the main area of Haad Rin, with restaurants on the beach at night and bars later on in the evening. You can hear some of this noise from the beach front rooms. We were not there over the full moon so it wasn't too bad.
Breakfast is great, especially after having buffets for the week before. It is al a carte style where there is about 10 choices such as bacon & eggs, pancakes and burgers which come with juice, toast and coffee/tea. We tried the omelette, french toast and cheeseburger which were all really tasty.
We decided to extend our stay an extra night since we like it so much and the staff were very accommodating and helpful, even ringing our hotel in Samui to let them know we are arriving late. We changed to a garden room and these are nice too. The only real difference is the view and they don't have tea & coffee in the room.
The only negative is the TV reception which isn't very good but we didnt really watch that much TV. Staff are lovely and provide free transport to Haad Rin Pier. I will definitely be back!

I had a great experience staying here. The service was very personal and it felt like they really appreciated their customers. Breakfast choice was great and the food in general here is well priced and cooked well, and it's right on the beach!

Location is very central, on the beach and not too far from town. I'd stay here again for sure as it feels like a quiet escape amongst party central Haad Rin.

We stayed here in June for the Full Moon, knowing full well it was the on the party beach (albeit the quieter end, but that doesn't really make a difference). We booked one of the 3 bungalows right on the sand. The room was great, our own decking, amazing view.....the shower is TERRIBLE. Like someone dribbling on your head. That was the only real flaw with the room.
If you are there for full moon, during the day its definitely the best part of beach if you want a bit more space, however, even at the end of the beach, at night time, ESPECIALLY full moon night, the noise is INSANE. on full moon night the stage is closer than other nights and the music went on till 8am. Our room was literally shaking as if a dinosaur was approaching, but as long as you know what you're in for and don't care if you lose a bit of sleep as you're there to party anyway, then it's bearable and a fun experience. Sleep on the beach instead! It's the best beach ever! Perfect sand, perfect sea.
The rest of the hotel was nice too, lovely pool area and outdoor restaurant with great friendly service from everyone. Would definitely go back even if it was that noisy. Take ear plugs and drink a lot!

At Hadd Rin Beach you dont have so much to choose if u want high standard.

This hotel is probebly the best one at the Hadd Rin Beach.
So rate it against other hotels on Hadd Rin Beach i would give it 5 of 5 stars

Compare the hotel with hotels at Koh Samui i would give it 3+ (We also stayed at Amari Palm Reef Resort 5 stars)

Palita lodge good thing:
+ Excellent location, exactly at the beach and close to everything. BUT at the calm part of the beach so not so noisy and we appreciated that very much!
+ One of few hotels with good pool are at the beach
+ Service minded owner and staff!
+ Excellent food at the hotel restaurant and good prices
+ Nice rooms but chose suit

Could be better:
- No safety box in room
- Watch out with the cleaner. First day they stole my girlfriends iPhone. But after talking with manager it showed up.
- No gym

Room Tip: Choose the nice rooms not the cheapest!
