Bobo is an amazing host and will do her best to cater your every need. Location is great, rooms are clean and food is cheap and tasty! If I were to return to koh phangan I would stay in first villa again without any hesitation. A family run resort that will make you feel very welcome.

At the first sight the First Villa Beach Resort seems like a normal Bungalow resort on Phangan, like there are so many others. A few nice bungalows and a pool overseeing the ocean surrounded by palmtrees. But thats not what makes this resort so special and worth every single bath...if not more... The real treasure of this resort is its... More

We stayed for 5 nights in September 2015 and had the best time! Whilst there we were able to attend a Black Moon Party and Bobo, along with the rest of the team, set up the dining area with body paint and bucket deals so everyone in the hotel can get together, have some drinks and most importantly paint everything!...

Possibly our favourite place in Thailand! We stayed here for 5 days in April and loved every minute! The view from the restaurant/pool was second to none! BeauBo and her family really do make this place. From the moment we arrived BeauBo was welcoming and couldn't do enough for us! She arranged for all of the residents to go to... More

This has to be the friendliest place in Thailand, and by far the best place we have stayed. It is a family run hotel that makes you feel like one of the family as soon as you arrive. We booked 3 nights and stayed a week, we would have stayed even longer if we could! Location is perfect, 15 minutes... More

I basically liked this place, it was situated in a nice environment and the staff was also very nice, especially Bobo (she is crazy..in a good way). There are many shops, supermarkets and restaurants around. However, when you are looking forward to swim in the sea and chill on a beautiful beach-this is not the right place. Whole beach was...

Randomly found this place and can not recommend it highly enough.. Feels like your staying with family. Great atmosphere in the bar and around the pool. Rooms are standard beach bungalows cleaned daily. It is the perfect place to stay when in ko phangan. Bo bo and Baby are the perfect hosts.

If you're looking for 5* luxury then this isn't the place for you! The room is very basic with a shower which barely produced more than a dribble and a shower head which didn't stay on the wall. The TV had no aerial and the safe didn't lock. You may be thinking why have I given 4* then, here is... More

We stayed at First Villa in October 2015. The staff were amazing and very accommodating. Located on the beach front its the perfect relaxing place to stay. I highly recommend this hotel if you want to stay away from the full moon party. The full moon party is held 20mins away by taxi. (which cost 5euros) The restaurant in the... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and we really enjoyed it. First Villa is a family owned and operated facility and they are all super friendly and very helpful. The food was really good and we basically ate curie all the time. If you order the curie, get it with the roti, its amazing! Rooms were clean... More
