Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We stayed at Moonhut in June and had an amazing time. We hadn't been in Thailand long and it gave a great impression. We had the cheapest fan room. The fan was enough, we didn't need air con. The room was about 20 steps from the white sand beach. There was a bar/ restaurant at reception that served delicious food and drinks and at reasonable prices. There were sun loungers for guests, a shower on the beach and scooters and kayaks to rent. It's really peaceful but still close to everything. A plus- rooms are serviced every day, which has not been the case in any other places that we have stayed for the same price.

Room Tip: Standard fan room is B550

We stayed here in May 2012 and were lucky enough to have the No 1 air conditioned bungalow which is literally 10 metres from the sea. The bungalow is right on the beach and you look right out on to the sea, at night you can lie on your bed with the doors open and see and listen to the sea, its amazing. The beach is lovely and is nice and secluded and quiet so you really can relax here. There is an onsite restaurant and bar and the food selection is great, many Thai dishes and also some western food but most importantly the food tastes fantastic. This was the best place we stayed at in Thailand due to the location primarily, its beautiful. The owners also have 4 very friendly dogs, so if you are not a dog lover then maybe this could be a problem. But honestly they really are no problem at all and its also rather amusing watching the gold labrador spend hours sitting in the sea watching the fish! I would highly recommend this place to anyone, its great value for money and a little piece of paradise on earth. we only wish we could have stayed longer, would definitely go back here when returning to Koh Samui.

We stayed in a fan only bungalow and absolutely loved it. Our bungalow was very simple with just a bed and a dresser, and a standard SEA style bathroom. Bungalow is free standing and really pretty from the outside, and is less than a minute to the water and is surrounded by vegetation and the (very loud) sound of cicadas. The water at this beach is not as clear as in Chaweng, but is secluded and very pretty, with views out to Koh Pha Ngan. Staff very nice and helpful, and the food at the on-the-beach restaurant/bar was very good.
Only down point was that there was no free wifi available, just a pay as you surf connection available at the bar

Arrived at Moonhut Bungalows at about 10pm after many hours of travelling and what a lovely welcome we received! A member of staff was waiting for us to arrive, greeted us and carried our bags straight to our (Beachfront!!) bungalow. He very kindly put some Chang in a cooler for us behind the bar and left us to relax on the beach. It was brilliant!
We stayed for 4 nights in AC1, a beautiful, spacious beachfront bungalow. We literally had to step off our balcony and we were in the water. If you are a light sleeper you might have problems as the waves are breaking right outside your door. I thought it was amazing! Also, the room was cleaned everyday.
The beach was lovely, although small and it was difficult to get a sun bed if you didn't get one right away in the morning. However, there was plenty of space for towels in the sand! I've also read other reviews that say the water is calm, but that was not the case during our stay. We didn't make it into the water very much as the waves were so big and lots of stuff was washing up on the beach.
The staff were great, patient, and really friendly, although there was one person that was decidely not! Didn't manage to get a smile out of her the whole time we were there. The food was so good, and good value, we absoluetly stuffed ourselves!
The location is good, depending on what you want out of your holiday. Moonhut is kind of tucked away from it all. There are rivers further up and down the beach preventing you from getting very far along the beach, to other restraunts, etc. However, you can walk back up to the main road and find plenty there, and find access to the beach further on past the river.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moonhut Bungalows and would consider returning if we ever make it back to Koh Samui.

my boyfriend and I spent a week here before moving to koh phangan for the full moon party for a week of relaxation. this place was perfect for us we paid $16/night for a double fan bungalow. it was great the bungalows are cute and very cool so we found the fan to be more than adequate. the rooms are very clean and the staff clean the room everyday as well as giving clean towels. the food at the restaurant was fab and great value we also hired mopeds through the bungalows to explore the island which was perfect as they had them right there and rental was no problem. would definitely recommend!!!

This is our 3rd visit here, but our first with our 4 yr old daughter. We had a great time yet again, The owners and staff are all really friendly and looked after us really well on our 2 week stay. The location is right on the beach overlooking Koh Pha-nghan, the sea is calm and great for swimming although not clear enough for snorkelling. It is only a 5-10 minute walk down the beach to the little village of Maenam where there are shops/bars/restaurants. Each Thursday night they have a street market with loads of food stalls which sell really cheap and tasty Thai food, definitely worth going to see

The food in the restaurant is excellent we didnt have a bad meal!

We are already planning a return visit soon!
