“Comfortable, well located and great staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Palita Lodge has become one of my favourite places to stay in Thailand. The infraestructure of the Hotel is great. Nice swimming pool, great beach view and spot, really comfortable and clean rooms, good and affordable restaurant with international and very fresh and typical Thai food wireless internet all over the place, including at the beach in front of the hotel, beach towels and laundry service. Also, they can recommend the best places to visit on the island and they can actually take you there and provide a tour along the island on a very affordable rate. It's a great place to stay for Full Moon Party because it has one of the best spots in Haad Rin, but also during the low season and other Moon Parties. Staff here is really really considerate, thoughtfull and they make the best to make your stay as comfortable and great as it can be. Ao, Su, Yrad are great hostess and they will do their best to provide all the things necessary to make your stay in Ko Phanghan memorable. I was by myself for 6 days there, but it's suitable for any kinds of guests: families, friends, couples. This is the place!

Room Tip: Pool view and beach view rooms are the best choice.

We stayed first in the suite room for 3 nights, which was fine, but we didnt use the facilities, decided to move to the garden room, compromising on price over size for another 3 nights. We (2 adults + 1 1 year old) only planned to stay the 3 nights, but had such a relaxing time here stayed for 3 more. It wasnt necessarily the hotel that made it relaxing, Koh Phangan does that for you, but it certainly helped. Right on the best beach, sunrise beach,the hotel food was good, pool very refreshing, clean rooms, not far from haad rin center and I cant over emphasis how amazing and lovelly all the staff were, especially with our son. Would love to come back here in the future.

Stayed for 3 nights(booked ahead, so couldn't leave). The "Villa" (Bungalow) is quite small, but the room is nice and modern, the bathroom was awfull! No window, just a net.. The hotel is located at the end of the good beach, so the location is not bad but not great. Getting to the hotel through the streets is not the best experience.. Datk allies and you feel like you are walkinh through the jungle.. Many kinds of insects..
Breakfast was good though.

As a former flight attendant, I gained lots of experience in hotels and the quality and level of service.
I'm happy to determine that this hotel is the of the best, regarding the level of service, food quality, and comfort of the rooms.
The hotel Manger and her wonderful staff are doing everything possible to ensure that a request would be granted.
Truthfully, there are not many high-class hotels in Koh Phangan, this one is definitely the best hotel on the island.

Room Tip: Highly recommend Suite A or B.

Went here with me and 10 girls and it was fantastic!!! Best time ever we were travelling round thailand on holiday for just over 2 weeks , We stopped here for 4 days for the full moon party and to enjoy the area. I cant compliment the staff enough!! nothing was to much trouble, Our rooms were always clean and tidy! The food was fantastic, One gentlemen named 'o' probably not how you spell it recommended we got fresh fish caught that day and had a feast in the evening it was gorgeous!! great fresh fish great salad and accompaniments.

We were 2 adults and 6 kids (ranging ages from 23 to 10 years old) stayed 6 days including August full (fool?) moon night.
Palita Lodge is very well located, in Haad rin but 300 m from the party, enough to let us choice between sleeping or partying.
Simple appearance, including showing the backside of the hotel and a sheet with "special warnings" about damages to pay if... made us to hesitate if we choose right.
6 days later we were convinced that we made it righ!
Location (close to everything but still far enough), service, quality of food (very good breakfast, try the Dr. shakshuka, you will love it), very low food prices, atmosphere, etc. All was excellent, simple and relaxed, at our request they prepared low alcohol bucket safe for our teens.

We (myself and three buddies, all twenty-something males) stayed here for five nights during the July Full Moon Party. We had a "Garden View Bungalow" or something like that. We had literally a perfect experience here. The location was unbelievable for Full Moon (right on the famous Haad Rin party beach, but slightly further down from the bigger dance parties, so felt more secure, little less noise when you're trying to pass out at 8am) - everything in Haad Rin is walking distance. The resort itself was also awesome - very clean, the rooms were great (not just for the price), grounds well maintained, awesome pool, and the food at the resort's restaurant was decent as well. Each bungalow has a patio which was great for hanging out on and pre-gaming before going out for the night.

That said, although everything else was near perfect, what really made our stay was the staff at Palita, and particularly the manager Arh (sp?). From the first night we arrived, he (and the other staff too!) was around attending to anything and everything we needed. He planned a boat tour for us and some other friends staying on the island (if you do this ask for Captain John, he is hilarious), put together a special fresh seafood lobster/prawn/fish dinner and went to the pier himself to pick out the food, gave us rides wherever we needed (including to pick up friends staying across the island at another resort), took us to the clinic when one of our friends broke her foot, and just generally went above and beyond to make sure we had fun, partied hard, never had to worry about anything, and stayed safe. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here for Full Moon (or for any other visit to Koh Phangan) - seriously couldn't have been better.
