“The service was best yet in thailand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

My partner and I stayed at tantawan bungalows for 2 nights after spending a week in koh samui. If we had more time available we would have been sure to stay longer. The bungalows are fantastic, everything you need and the balcony and hammock were perfect for watching the sunset.
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant both nights and the food was top quality. Whether thai, italian or seafood we loved it. It was also great to find decent red wine at a reasonable price.
The service provided by the owners and their staff was what really set tantawan apart. Friendly, polite and great for a chat!
Finally, we have been travelling throughout s.e. asia for 2 months now and this is the first time we've been compelled to review one of our stays! Strongly recommend!

While we did not stay there, we came here for dinner and drinks and thoroughly enjoyed the casual atmosphere of the resort and the lounge terrace. The 180 degree view of the ocean and the sunset are to die for. The food and service are great. The new owners of the resort put a lot of efforts into transforming this resort into an up and coming resort in Ko Phangan.

We were truly blessed to spend the holiday season at this amazing resort. Upon arriving we were greeted with huge smiles & an overall amazing vibe.

The setting is perfect! Perched high above street level, looking out over the beautiful sea we were all in paradise. Together with friends and family from all over the world we felt as if we had arrived... arrived in that speechless place of BLISS.

With all this praise I must put a little disclaimer, the property was only recently been taken over by the current owners and running a new business takes time. Be patience and remember your in Thailand.. If you can't relax here and go with the flow, when can you?

As for those who complain about the location I challenge you to experience more of Thailand than the hustle and bustle. Ko Phangan is a beautiful island that has more to offer than the full moon party(which is worth experiencing) but not the only thing it has to offer.

Reading this reviewing I just realized I didn't mention how CLEAN it was; usually the first thing I mention when reviewing a lodging option. Choose this bungalow if you want to find the happiest place on earth!

Room Tip: If you want to climb a few extra stairs choose the sea view rooms which may not have aircon but an...

We found the place in Lonely Planet. We arrived at a very steep hill, but when we finally 'climbed' up, we came to the most beautiful place. We were welcomed by a very friendly staff and checked in at a very nice hut! Had our own terrace, living room with TV, nice bedroom with a wardrobe and a fine toilet with warm water. The staff was very helpful at all time and we really enjoyed our stay. The food there is good as well ! Thank you!

don't look at reviews before july 2013, because its a complete different resort with new owners!! I booked 16 nights through email, because I found it only on internet and no agoda/booking.com. We had a good deal, but only now I realise we had a great deal, because the pictures Idid see, were the old ones. the place is completely renovated and lioks very luxe, and it is! very nice bungalows, maybe not everything is working perfect, but thats just time, they opened only decembre 2013! pool great, restaurant great with great oceanview. all bungalows have super oceanviews! we loved our stay here!! Owners are nice frenchmen.
