Fantastic villa for a group of friends to stay in. Plenty of space to relax, by the pool, out on the balcony, in the living area. The villa manager was extremely helpful in helping us hire bikes. Highly recommend this one - it's fantastic and in a great location. Make sure you explore the island too - the beaches further than the touristy ones are GOLD!

“A most excellent stay”

We were a party of 11 friends (24-25yos) who came to Koh Phangan for just over a week's stay. We spent our days exploring the various facets of the island and chilling on beachs, evenings were spent partying at various places around the island.

We wanted somewhere nice and comfortable to stay - Serenity Lodge definitely fulfilled that. Nice big house with lots of room for dining and just chilling out (huge living room and terraces). The air-con worked in all rooms and there are safety deposit boxes. The swimming pool is great for cooling down after a night out/morning after. The lodge also has a kayak which we took down to the bay (at foot of house) and would paddle around in. The villa also has wifi.

Penny (the manager and chef at Serenity) was welcoming and very spirited - she came out with us one night(!) and also showed us our favourite local beach restaurant (went there everyday for brunch - delicious!). She is also on site all the time so can sort out problems, make bookings etc... The other staff were also very helpful - just stick the "please clean me" sign on your room door for cleaning.

There aren't any self-cook facilities in the kitchen but you will not be cooking given local restaurant food is so good and cheap (we were always intending to eat out). There is a laundry and 7/11 nearby (walking distance). The villa's private beach is quite small and not really suitable for sunbathing but the bay is great - and some of the nicest beaches on the island are 5mins drive from the villa (our favourite was Koh Mae). For those going out to Haad Rin (full moon etc...) it is about a 30mins drive from the villa - Klaus (the driver) drove all 11 of us out there and it was quite fun in the back of Hilux in pre-party high-spirits. It's quite easy getting taxis back from Haad Rin and the other big party spots - they're readily available. You will need to sort out transport if you want to get around the island - we always went with Klaus, he was always reliable (promptly collected us from port on arrival), had good recommendations and good chat (a truly idiosyncratic individual!)

We all had an awesome time on Koh Phangan - Serenity Lodge helped make our trip memorable. Would recommend to family and friends - and we would also book again if we ever manage to return.

“Delightful Villa”

Serenity lodge was a great stay in a well equipped and really comfortable villa.Pen and Lee who manage the villa were attentive and charming. The position is good but the sea view at low tide when there is no water is a little disappointing. Pen offers home cooked meals which were excellent but you do pay a premium of multiples of what you can eat for at the local very good restaurants. Also be aware of the laundry charges which are stated to be at no cost. A disappointment was not having the bathrooms cleaned on a daily basis.
