I have been browsing the accomodation options for Koh Phangan for a few days now and don't seem to be any closer to deciding on what is best.
We are 2 couples who are going for the full moon party but are not the biggest partiers i.e. want to be able to go to sleep at say 3am without hearing too much noise.
We're also not sure we want to be tied to 5 nights on Koh Phangan when we are only in Thailand for 2 weeks.
Is it best to be close to the action and book somewhere like Leela Beach bungalows and slum it for 3 nights, or would you recommend getting a nicer hotel up by Thong Nai Pan and then getting a cab to the full moon.
On the other nights are there enough bars and restaurants up there to keep us occupied in Thong Nai Pan? And is it easy to get a taxi back after the party?
Budget wise, we're happy to spend up to say £60 a night but don't want to spend that on something overpriced and grotty.
Would like air conditioning and a nice room, with a pool if possible.
Thanks for any advice
