“WONDERFUL!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Having visited the island several times, this really was the best.
The hospitality (thanks to Paola) was perfect. As was the location, bungalow and services.

20 minutes (max) south, on a rented scooter takes you to the Islands capital Tong Sala. A lovely, scenic and safe ride.
20 minutes north and the charming Chaloklum, great snorkelling.

Me and my gf stayed at the seaboard for 4 nights and had an amazing time there. We stayed in an Ac Bungalow, which was very clean and spacious.
But besides the fantastic location on the west side of phangan the owners (Nader and Paola) made our stay memorable. It was the best accomodation we had in Thailands islands. We will defininitely be back soon.

Thanks so much Nader and Paola for the very nice stay we had. We hope to see you soon again.

Thanks and best wishes,

Julia & Borna

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Seaboard Bungalows. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the property and the views were spectacular, and the food was very good. The bungalows were new and extremely well-decorated, with outdoor patios and sometimes hamocs. Overall excellent experience.

For us the best place on the Island, enough bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood on a beautifull beach. Comfortable well made "bugs free" bungalows, some with more "woody" outer details than others but with good & silent clean aircon :) We had the beach front giving a perfect on the beach feel with terrace including a big sea view relax bed. The Italian couple running the place are wonderfull people (Paula rocks!) like the very friendly staff. If you need anything just ask is the idea. Nice restaurant (Italian chef makes finger lickin' good parmigiana!) with hammocks attracted nice people also from surrounding places for a drink, wifi and relax.
Forget all the negative reviews you'll find on the I net, it's outdated!
No swimming pool but hey, the nicest cleanest one is just in front. Matrasses found a bit firm but that's question of preference I guess.

The aircon sea view bungalows of Seaboard are really solidly build, clean and bug free :-) we had one with a cool lounge bed overlooking the ocean.
We checked all beaches on the island and the colour of the sand and the sea is for sure best at Haad Yao. Next to that it has a nice variety of bar/restaurants but stay home at Seaboard for great drinks in a great atmosphere and to taste wonderful Italian meals and coffee. We have stayed for two weeks and we saw people come and go and in different ways (different nationalities, live guitars, food lovers or playing kids) it was just a really great atmosphere! (Must be the most welcoming Italian hostess on the Island who is as diverse as the place she owns - check her knowledge on parties or history, she knows it all). we travelled with a teen ager and tot and for all of us this was a perfect relaxing and fun place to spend our holidays!

we spent wonderfull two weeks at this place and felt like at home! Paola & Nader are lovely owners - very helpful and welcoming! If you rent a scooter it's easy to travel merely everywhere on the island. Haad Yao is a beautiful, relaxed and quiet beach - if you want to stay away from the fullmoon-crowds, it's perfect to stay here.
The setting on the beach is great, probably no to get any better on Koh Phangan.
We can highly recommend this place!!
