“Excellent choice”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This was our first visit to Koh Phangan and we were certainly not disappointed either with the island or Longtail Beach Resort. We stayed in the boat house (excellent choice) which was a little more expensive but as we were staying for six nights considered it was worth the extra cost for the additional space and privacy. I don't think the web sight does Longtail Beach Resort justice because it was far better than the photographs show. Found getting around the island was not particularly easy unless you had your own transport - was quoted quite highly for a longtail boat to take us to another bay but the owner of Longtail Beach Resort arranged for us with another couple to have a longtail boat for about five hours and we were able to see several different bays at a reasonable price. Found the staff at Longtail very helpful and friendly. Except for one meal we used the restaurant at Longtail Beach Resort due to the good reviews which were justified. Would certainly recommend staying here.

This place it's lovely! It's The best of The whole beach ( we tried other places but we didn't really like them), The food is amazing, the beach is nice and well equipped for what you need in a beautiful place like that : a shower, a chair and a few toys for The children. The staff wasn't over friendly but still very helpful, and above all they were cool people. We loved to spend 10 days at this resort, as well as our children ( 1 yo and 3 yo), they found many children of their age to play with and that was great. It is also cheap! I reccomend to book well in advance if you want a sea view bungalow, but in this way you will enjoy a beautiful view and not your own privacy as The restaurant's terrace it is right in front of those bungalows.

We just finished our stay at longtail and absolutely loved it. It is such an adorable and relaxing place on a perfect beach. The bungalows were so comfortable and cute! The restaurant was delicious and well priced. A great stay! Make sure to book this one in advance as it sells out.

I love this place. Nice little bungalows right on the beach at the end of Thong Nai Pan Yai Beach. We stayed in an air con room and it was really nice. Also comes with mosquito net over the bed, hammock out the front, and a hot shower. The resort has a restaurant which serves excellent food - lots of vegetarian options too all served up in novelty dishes in the shape of longtails! Secluded spot and quiet too. They offer a laundry service and taxis to other parts of the island. Friendly staff. Really impressed.

We were so impressed with this place! Really low cost beach huts, but still great friendly service, clean and beautiful setting on the beach front. We payed a tiny bit extra for an air-con hut (well worth it) and although it was small, it was fine for a couple of nights and had everything we needed. Not sure I could spend a week or more here though, simply because I'm used to staying in hotels/apartments that just have a bit more space/storage and I was feeling a bit nervous about bugs getting in! (There is a net on the bed, I'm just really paranoid about bugs!) All that said, we encountered no creatures other than the resident dogs, which were all very cute and friendly! (Although a note here on dogs... If you are afraid of them, you may want to reconsider this area of Phangan as there are LOTS of strays that although mostly friendly, will approach you/bark at you so you may find it hard to deal with).
Getting here can be tricky, better to dock at Thong Sala and get a taxi. We got a speed boat to Haad Rin with a load of Full-mooners and had a nightmare trying to get someone to take us to the north! Ended up paying wsy over the odds as we had no one to share with... And its certainly a menorable trip over the spine of the island from that direction! ha!
Longtail is located at the end of the beach, so feels nicely tucked away. The beach is lovely and the sea calm. You can get boats to the other beaches, although we didn't get chance. We had a wonder to the waterfall, but wasnt really worth it. Lots of lovely restaurants/bars to choose from along the beach front of an evening and the food at Longtail is fab. Very much enjoyed both the Thai & western offerings! You can also walk to the village easily for a couple of little shops/bars etc, which is handy.
Loved being in Thong Nai Pan - so peaceful and relaxing. It had a real laid-back hippy vibe and the jungle landscapes and scenery were just amazing. I'd say this is the perfect place to come if you are looking to get away from it all but still have lots of nice relaxed dining/drinking options for the evening. Stay at longtail for high-quality budget-basic accomodation in paradise.

Our Honeymoon on Longtail Beach Resort was INCREDIBLE! Longtail beach resort was such a fantastic start to our stay on Koh Phangan. We arrived in the afternoon (took a ferry from Koh Samui)....then a taxi (300 baht per person) and arrived after a bumpy ride to Longtail Beach Resort. Feel free to email me anytime with questions. The food was delicious, the workers are all so friendly, helpful and polite! We stayed in #2, right across from the restaurant and so so so close to the beach! (Hard beds, but this was the case at all 4 places we stayed in Thailand, so "oh well" !)
Thank you, Wacharin and your team, for a fabulous honeymoon!

Room Tip: We loved room #2. If going when it's hot, then we do recomment a/c. But your choice. Clean, s...
