“WE LOVED THIS PLACE!!!”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

We stayed at Blue Lotus for three nights and absolutely loved it... Our favorite place in Thailand so far!  Our bungalow was clean with a beautiful view of the beach.  We had dinner at the restaurant every night and the food was delicious... Great Mexican!  Pong and his staff were very hospitable and it was great getting to know the three resident dogs.  We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxed place to stay with a super friendly atmosphere.  Thanks for such a great time!

My boyfriend and I fell in love with the Blue Lotus resort when we stayed in February 2012 for 4 nights (wish we could have stayed longer). The owner and his staff are so hospitable and welcoming - you feel right at home here!

The little bungalows are simple but clean and cozy. You have everything you need!

Pong (the owner) took 3 stray dogs in as puppies. They are now 11 and really contribute to the lovely atmosphere on the resort. They are so sweet and well trained.

The food here is excellent too! We only ate one meal somewhere in town and we regretted it. The meals at the resort are good prices and very tasty (Thai, Mexican and Western).

I can see why people keep coming back here. If I ever come back to Koh Phangan, I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I miss Tigga, Shiba and Fuzzy already!! :-)

We stayed for the new year party and have to say we couldn't be happier with our accomadation.
Nice clean rooms with comfy beds. Best attributes are the excellent restaurant and the awesome hosts.
Highly recommend staying here.

We stayed for couple of days just before the full moon party's and it s absolutely lovely. It is basic, fan cold water but you don't need much more in the summer. The location is very pretty especially at sunset. The food is really nice! Only downfall is if you are planning on going out a tax is roughly 100-200b pp each way and no where close to walk too. A bike is only 250 a day and you can hire from the place but the roads are sketchy at the best of times. I would stay there again.

My partner and I booked for 5 nights and ended up staying for 16 nights. Pong, Shauna, Jung and uhan were all brilliant, could not make us feel more genuinely welcome if they tried. The food was absolutely amazing all home made (large portions) you definitely will not go hungry. The bungalow's are a good size and clean with a comfortable mattress. They have three lovely friendly polite dogs that contribute to the lovely atmosphere. The views from the resort are beautiful. Would definitely recommend and go back again and again....

Room Tip: Excellent budget accommodation

I've stayed here a few times for a couple weeks on different Thailand trips. If your looking for a quiet place to sleep but still close enough to the actions, this is your place. Also it was so nice to have good Mexican food, after 8 months of Thai food (don't get me wrong, love the thai food but changing it up is nice). The owners are super helpful and great to chat with. Local knowledge and good English make them a helpful resource.

I am not sure about the negative posters experience as I have stayed there twice seven years apart. The food homemade and actually quite legendary. People for the last 20 years make a point to stop at the Blue Lotus for its Mexican food when they visit Koh Phangan. It is a little tucked away place with bungalows and a restaurant known for its food. The bungalows are clean and comfortable. Certainly not the amenities of a 4star hotel, but it is Koh Phanghan and people come for the Full Moon Party in the jungle. Check out the fan base of Blue Lotus on facebook and see what regulars have to say first. -------. This page was started by one of the regulars who come back year after year, just like I have. Blue Lotus is true blue Thailand!

Room Tip: Almost all rooms are less than 100 feet from beach, so dependent on whether you are a couple (get a...
