This is by far my favourite place in Thailand! We were only supposed to stay four days but extended our stay to 10 as we literally fell in love with The Smile and Koh Phangan. We would have stayed longer if we didn't have any engagements that dragged us away. The location is great with the most beautiful sunsets, nested... More

We had the standard bungalow with air con. The inside was beautiful, very nicely decorated and had some handy storage, a TV, a fridge, a window seat and a rather big bed. The sink in the bathroom however drained straight on the floor which made brushing you teeth end with washing your feet. Outside we had a raised porch/terrace with... More

We went to Koh Phangan for one and only one motive, freakin' FULL MOON PARTY. This place has served its best in making our party more funny and with all comforts. I would say: -- The place is nice with friendlier staff and cheap & good food. -- The rooms are clean and properly maintained. -- Place is quite close... More

The bungalows are basic, but clean & the beds are comfy. You get your private hammock and the bungalows are just across the street from Hinkong beach (great sunsets, beach itself is ok). There are several restaurants, a supermarket and a tourist information (they also offer motorcycle rentals) and it is only a 10 minute ride to Thong Sala. You... More
