We absolutely loved our stay at Da Kanda! We are in our early 20’s and were there for 7 nights around the new years eve full moon party on ko Phangan. The staff were amazing! They were so friendly and helpful and they were always willing to answer our questions, make recommendations and regularly checked up on how we were doing. While we were there another guest had had a bad fall off a scooter and the hotel staff cleaned and dressed her wounds regularly- I think this just shows what a friendly, helpful bunch they really were.
The rooms were really nice and very clean. The pool was great also and the location right on a really nice stretch of beach was unbeatable. Lying on the deck by the pool & looking out over the water was priceless. It was a peaceful location yet only a few minutes walk into Thongsala which was great. Thongsala had great shopping and lots of yummy food places, the night markets (just a 1 minute walk from resort) are a must see. We also found it no trouble getting a tuk tuk into the full moon party, this only took about 15minutes and usually cost 100B each which we thought wasn’t bad at all. It was even quicker to get to the half moon party. The hotel staff were happy to organise for a tuk tuk to pick us up but they also regularly drove passed the resort. We loved the location and would definitely stay there again if we were going to the full moon party- it is nice to be able to get out of the hussle.
The food at the resort was delicious and very well priced, not resort pricing at all! We ended up eating there lots of times and thoroughly recommend the beach BBQ’s! These were fantastic, tables and chairs were set out on the sand with fairy lights. You picked out what type of fresh seafood you would like from a display and they cook it up for you in delicious spices/sauces, and once again this was also very well priced. The BBQ’s attracted many people from other resorts also.
We would 100% recommend Da Kanda to anyone and would certainly stay there again in a heart beat. We have stayed at a total of 4 resorts in Thailand so far around Ko Samui, Ko Phangan, Phi Phi Island and phuket and Da Kanda was my favourite!!
