I've just left Phangan Akuna after a 5-month stay and I really can't speak highly enough about this place. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings just a 5-minute cycle (on a pushbike, not a scooter, although they do rent those too) to the beach. I actually liked being near but slightly inland from beautiful beaches as it can get busy and hot down there. Phangan Akuna gives you the best of both worlds. There's a stunning, large pool, where I swam every day. The villas (I stayed in a one bed) are extremely comfortable and clean. But really, the icing on the cake is the staff and the way the property is run (thanks to them). Nothing is too much trouble - I printed out documents, made bookings with their help, got lifts places etc etc. I would recommend this place without hesitation and hope to return soon. …
My girlfriend and I spent here four lovely quiet days, enjoying the swimming pool, nice bungalow and good food, especially fruit shakes. We rented a scooter at the reception for the same price as anywhere else. The staff were extra friendly and helpful. Highly recommended if you do not mind, not being by the sea.
We stayed at Phangan Akuna for 6 days in a Deluxe Villa with a Kitchenette ! Firstly it was great value for price, extremely tidy, and spacious. Secondly, I it’s location is perfect for all the vegan food lovers, and only 10 minutes away from the beach! Not only are the facilities perfect but the staff take it to the next level. They were always available for questions and suggestions, provided genuine hospitality, which is lacking in many establishments! Special thanks to Anne (we believe in you that you will succeed with your bucket list) ♥️
If u want a nice and quie place for a good price this would be a perfect place to stay. You won't hear traffic or loud music. It's modern and super clean. The ladies at the reception are friendly and helpful. You wouldn't need a motorcycle (200Bht) a day as this place is a bit away from the beach. Pool is great and hardly used. Hope the maintenance remains as it is. It has more of western style.. I mean the Bungalow. Love to watch the birds.
We stayed a week and really enjoyed our time. Beds and rooms are super comfortable and clean. Nice quiet location (jungle side-no water views etc). Affordable scooter hire from hotel means you are at some of the nice beaches in 5-10 mins. The receptionist, Mie, was very friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable with good advice on where to go and what to do. Would recommend this place for a quiet get away.
Very spacious well appointed villas in the lush green of nature. Liked everything about the resort. Proximity to bantai & thongsala is a little away however if you have your own bike & car then no issues at all. We did most of our dinner in restaurant & it didn't disappoint us. Even though we liked the breakfast, I felt a little change in the menu everyday plus a few more addition to the spread would be exciting
if you are looking for a quiet place to take a complete shut off from travel stress, this is the place. the beds are super comfy, the pilows ultra smoothe and the bungalows spacious. The showers dont really provide cold water. Its jungle side. Pool is old school. the AC takes some time get serve the required temp.
Stayed 10 days on the first round and it was wonderful in every way. The staff is engaged, conscientious, and clean. The grounds are immaculate, as are the rooms. Great amenities, frig, electric tea kettle, coffee/tea, along with 2 bottles of water daily. Wifi is fast and reliable, and you don't experience that lull in the evening hours when everyone is streaming. A/C excellent. Lots of outlets to charge electronics. Plenty of storage space in the rooms for luggage, clothes and extras. There is a solid desk to get work done. Laundry is picked up at the front office. The bed is comfortable with fresh, clean linens. Robes and flip flops are a welcome addition, and they also give you a rattan bag and towels for the pool. The pool is clean and perfect temperature, great size and easy to do laps. The breakfast is well worth mentioning. Every morning you have the gambit of eggs cooked to order, breakfast meat, cereal, toast, yogurt and lovely cut fruit. Wonderful fresh ground coffee machine, loved it. But it is important to note (and I have included several photos) that the resort has taken a special interest in providing vegan options which are now copious and well-marked EVERY morning - just let them know when you check in. I am grateful I took the breakfast option. It is extremely quiet and peaceful here. A little out of the way, it is important to rent a bike at the resort or have some mode of transportation planned if you are wanting to visit Thong Sala or other beaches. It is close enough for an enjoyable walk to the many restaurants and shops in Sri Thanu. From the timely pick up at Thong Sala pier, to the efficient check-in and scooter rental, to everyday needs in the room and finally check out, the stay is perfect. I left to go to a yoga retreat on the island, but booked several nights to come back and couldn't wait because it has everything I need for a restful, hassle-free vacation. I was welcomed with open arms, because that is how they are here. I loved the staff and I will be back - never going to stay anywhere else on the island.…
The staff is fabulous. The downside is that you are not close to anything and unless you rent scooters you're stuck there. The scooters are cheap and easy to rent. Otherwise, you have to call for taxis. It's a pretty good hike to the nearest restaurants and shops and I wouldn't recommend walking it at night. Great if you want to get away from the noise and crowds though. The pool is pretty basic, we didn't take advantage of it. The breakfast was good and an opportunity to get good, non-instant coffee. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. We were there in high season and, although they didn't seem very full, there were so many less expensive options that we were a little disgruntled at first considering the added expense of securing transportation every day. However, the staff is so very friendly and accommodating, they made our stay worthwhile.…
Our stay was wonderful, the place is very quit Has everything a family needs to have a great vacation! The food is nice, but the real thing is the place... In the middle of the forest, between trees.. Amazing!
