Lovely pool, great restaurants little bit prices. The beach is not the best on Thailand but it doesn't matter due to having the pool. Close to the local shops, room was a good size, air con could stay on all day to go back to a cool room as didn't need the key. The shower was terrible! Had to use... More

Short and simple these are bungalows for fullmon party goers, it has a spring break vibe to the whole resort, and it's packed with party people that as long as its close to the party it really doesn't matter that most rooms have no wi-fi, that the bed frames are moldy and that there are cracks on the walls and...

This well run backpacker hostel is suitable for everyone. Situated on a beautiful beach which can be seen from the dorms we stayed in, the location is perfect. Since FM party is only one night it was perfect to be 15 mins outside of the chaotic Haad Rin (location of FM party), and stay in a more tranquil setting. The... More

We had a great time staying at the beach village. Rooms were nice and the bar had great drinks. However eating at the restaurant you will not get any service unless you walk up to someone and ask to Oder your meal or ask to pay your bill. And once you do get someone's attention they are very un-enthused to... More

The ground were beautiful, right on the beach and the pool was always clean. The food is a little over priced for the... More

The title says it all. Staff was amazing, the AC in my room broke and the next morning they had a crew replacing the broken unit with a brand-new one. The bungalow was right in the beach close to the pool and it was clean. The office will help you purchase your moon party tickets a arrange transportation. Part of... More

Came here twice within the space of 6 months, need I say more? Couldn't really ask for a better hostel to stay in Koh Phangan, made good friends with the people staying there and the owner, good location and lots going on. Will be back as soon as I get time of work!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Party or relax at our beautiful beach resort overlooking the picturesque Gulf of Thailand. The Beach Village is a backpacker friendly resort designed in a village style, spread along 200 meters of stunning Baan Tai beach. We offer a wide range of accommodation, ranging from bungalows with sea or pool views through to our spacious air-conditioned dorm rooms. We have everything that you need to have a great stay without leaving the resort; our restaurant serves a mix of both Western and Asian dishes, catering to those homesick or adventurous. You can enjoy a meal at our latest addition, the Grub Club. A huge success, our newest venture, situated on the beach, offers gourmet burgers, hotdogs and Fish ‘n’ Chips, all freshly cooked everyday. You can choose from a selection of cocktails or beers at our purpose built Tiki Bar next to our stunning beachfront pool. We also boast our very own nightclub, the Ku Club, a beachfront venue which has hosted DJ’s such as Netsky, Goldie and members of the Prodigy. We are located 5 minutes from the bustling port of Thong Sala, which as the main town of the island offers all the amenities you would expect. In the opposite direction we are just 15 minutes from Haad Rin, and the famous Full Moon beach. We are also only 100 meters from the First Western Hospital, opened in early 2015. Our multilingual reception staff are always willing to help, and can assist in booking tours, excursions and onwards travel. Please note this is not a quiet place to be during Full Moon!
