“great beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

My wife and I stayed here Oct 2012 for 3nights and would have stayed longer if we had not already paid for accomdation on the other islands.We were upgraded from standard bungalow to a deluxe which had all we wanted, safe, coffee making, balcony with hammock, great views,clean and well serviced. Good showers hot/cold.Aircon worked well. In all could not find a fault with this bungalow.The beach which is classed as private was beautiful and peacefull with plently of sunbeds scattered around.The restuarant is almost right on the beach with nice views. Breakfast was well served with plenty of choice. The meals were good valve and the price of a bottle of beer was the same as in the nearby town, so if you didnt want to leave the hotel it would not be worth the walk into town.The staff were very good and offered a good service.They arranged our transfer to boat for our next destination. We would definity stay here again if we came back to Koh phangan

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

It is not long ago when Koh Panagan was a cheap destination with great beaches and wild nightlife (if you consider Haadrin beach). this has probably changed for the most part. New real estate constructions, bad infra structure, stink from sewer, and bad food. even the famous Mamas Chicken does not quite taste the same.
But i thought at least the room at Sarikantang (which cost us 2400 Bht + not cheap for this island) will be appropriate. it was not. horrible shower, hard bed, no mousqito net, and bugs all over.
you better off paying bit extra and have a wonderful room at the adjacent resort.
but its not only the room which ruin it for us - the access road to the hotel is pure mud road. some taxi refuse getting there. walking to town is a pain too.
I imagine that some other room were better, which is why we gave it 3 stars and not one!.
The beach itself is nice, bring memories of old times where we were young and naive, like this island was once. Not anymore.

Room Tip: take the villa at the front of the hotel. worth it, if you can pay.

After a long day of work, this place is exactly what you need for a real vacation. The room is cozy with great view of well-decorated landscape. The beach is clean and serene.

My favorite part is the restaurant by the beach where you will have complimetary breakfast of your choice and fresh seafood anytime. The dogs here are so friendly too making me feel like home.

Phangan island is famous for full moon party but this place is recommended for family and couples. Not far from the party place but still have a space for peaceful privacy.

Cant wait going back there again for my next days off.

We stayed for 3 nights in a pool access room for about 4200 B for night (not during full moon).
The room wad very spacious and nicely decorated. The pool was much better than the hotel major pool.
Location: haad rin, on the quite side of the area. Good location to my opinion since it is right on the beach which is far enough from the noisy part of the area and only a five min walk to the center.
During Sept there were about 3 shuttles a day to the center but again, its only a short walk.
Free Wi-Fi arround the lobby and restourant ,the signal was good enough on our balcony as well.
We found 2 problems during our stay:
1. Brown water came out when we tried to fill the bath with hot water.
2. Breakfast: it took too long to take the orders and to serve them.

In total, we had a great stay and we highly recommend it.

We stayd here May 2012. Appriciated professional approach to customers. Everything was just good. Exellent restaurant, exept the terrible music there, which spoiled the atmosfer of beautiful surrounding. I would stay here again.. And the SPA is just great..

My fiance and I had a great 6 night stay here. Over our two week trip to Thailand this was the nicest and most expensive (~$76/ni USD) place at which we stayed but we felt it was worth it. Access to two pools was great since the water is quite shallow at the beach by the resort. In fact, we never actually swam at the Sarikantang pools but instead walked the 2 minutes next door to the nicer Cocohut pool area.

Our room was nice but since we booked pretty close to the full moon party (Same-Same blasts music until 10pm the day following full moon parties and it's quite noisy) our unit (#50) wasn't as well maintained as some of the others may have been. I had to rig the TV cable to get any stations, small ants in the bathroom (they weren't that bothersome but we're pretty low key). The safe was out of batteries when we arrived so twice someone had to come open it manually for us... a stain or two on the bed, some drip marks on the walls... small things like that. Compared to other options, however, we were quite pleased with our room over all. Two free waters each day and decent mini-bar prices were kind to our wallets.

The grounds are beautiful and breakfast was the best we'd had (for free) in Thailand. If you're going for the full moon party this place is great. About a 5 minute walk from Haad Rin and because it's on the other side of a hill, the noise from the main party isn't audible. The beach is quite walkable with a cool pier of about 200 meters in length going out to deeper water where there is some decent snorkeling (at least when we went there was!).

The food at the restaurant is really good and we were able to release the hot air globes in celebration of the full moon which was fun. Other guests were either families or people in their late twenties to mid thirties.

The staff was fantastic and even helped us for hours trying to change a flight. They booked us taxis, day trips and were helpful about everything.

We rented a vespa to get around the island, which I highly recommend. If you're not staying here for the Haad Rin partying, this end of Koh Phangan feels a bit remote. There are nicer beaches better for snorkeling and swimming in the north and the night market is in Thongsala. Alternatively, the songtheows cost 100 baht to go pretty much anywhere on the south side of the island. HOWEVER, if you are taking a songtheow from the Pier in Thongsala, make sure the driver agrees to take you ALL the way to Sarikantang. The resort is up and over some rough roads and our driver just ditched us instead of taking us all the way. We had to pay another 200 baht total to get a nearby taxi to take us all the way there.

Room Tip: Ask for the pool front suits (newer) as they looked to be quite nice.
