Just 5 minutes walk from the main pier, we walked into Buakao Inn without reservation as it was during the green season/ low season last year. We get to know about this place through Lonely Planet and read some good reviews about it, after inspecting the room, we agreed to stay on.
Mike, the owner was accommodating and made every effort to make sure that we have a comfortable stay. Wifi was working great from the room. The street leading to the inn is properly lit and felt safe. I would stay here again for my next visit. Highly recommended.

- Phangan's most luxurious guest house.

Located only 5 minutes walk from Koh Phangan's main piers and taxi stands, our guesthouse is perfect for divers taking a scuba course, yoga students and teachers or beach lovers looking for the perfect place to get some sun. Dance party goers too will find this central location great for a long and luxurious sleep before and after the all night raves our island is famous for. We are in the middle of Thongsala but our rooms are very quiet. Even if you are looking for a house to rent and want some time to find for the right place, we are the ideal central point to start your house hunt. ... more less
