Bottle Beach 1 Resort
Ranked #41 of 91 Hotels in Ko Pha Ngan
Reviewed May 5, 2012

I have been to Bottle Beach a number of times and really like it. I like the fact that the bungalows are directly on the beach and that the beach is a good one where you can easily swim (which is not the case on all the beaches in Koh PhaNgan).

The bungalows however are starting to show their age and will probably need to be re-furbished in the near future. It was particularly warm when I was there (Thailand was having its hottest period for years) and so the fan in the room was really struggling. A number of people moved from the bungalows when I was there to some of the rooms in this or the neighbouring resorts that had air-con. I stayed there but got them to swap the fan for a better one, which was ok but still not great.

However I came for the location not the room!

They have changed the menu in Bottle Beach 1 since the last time I was there and the new menu is probably the least extensive of the 4 restaurants in Bottle Beach.

Room Tip: If you want a bit more than a basic room with a fan, choose the Beach Front Delux room and if it get...

We have come back again and even though we were able to stay for a few days this time, it was great to see all the best staff still there. Keyo, Yod were on good form and we were so happy to see them again. The new manager Aey is extremely efficient and was friendly and really helpful throughout the stay.

Still my favourite place to stay on the island and I've now travelled to most places. Quiet and beautiful with super friendly staff, I'm looking forward to going back again.

Room Tip: Executive Beach Front Air Con are my favourite rooms.

Bottle Beach 1 is a pretty good joint but I wasn't sold on the beach itself. It's beautiful but not particularly more so than any other beach on Ko Pha Ngan. The pool area here is nice and they do probably the best food on the beach but I would give Smile bungalows a look as well. If you are looking for bungalows, try Smile; if you want A/C and a telly then go to Bottle Beach. The other two places definitely weren't appealing.

After India it is refreshing to be in Thailand.

We stayed in the resort for 4 nights. What a stunning beach and a beautiful resort. The food was fantastic and the staff were helpful. Thank you for a great stay and we hope to re-visit later on in our travels.

i didnt like the place at all. we were staying in a bungalow which was stinking (smelled like pee) and had a lot of cockroaches in our room.The beach is dirty. Most horrible are the young waiters, who think they are american gangsters and always want to high five. Started to getting on our nerves after a few days. The pool was dirty, i was not going inside once! The only plus is the food: Really good but expensive. Dont stay there!

We arrived without a reservation, which is not the best idea around this beach, and were lucky to get a simple bungalow (wooden, raised above ground on poles) which had fan, cold shower, but it just fits into that idea of lonely beach so we were satisfied. The place is really quiet, staff is helpful and entertaining,but sometimes they need a break from all those smiles.) Food was tasty, teethless boat driver was always on time and beach was very empty and overall excellent in comparison with other ko phangan's destinations.
You have to ask for a room service. There are 2 overpriced shops runned by the resorts, so buy what you can in chaloklum if you are a budget backpacker.
oh, and check that viewpoint which is amazing!
