Stayed at Blue Lotus Resort for the Black Moon party 2 weeks ago. The party was a short walk along the beach from Blue Lotus so the resort is in a very good location. The bungalow we had was very clean, spacious and had a nice terraced area outside to sit on. Pong the manager was very friendly and even collected our tickets for the ferry the day before our departure without us asking him to!! He then gave us a lift to the ferry terminal for free too! His restaurant had amazing food which was cheap so we ate there every day. We felt really welcome and got far more than we expected for our money - a very attractive proposition to any traveller!

Room Tip: Sea view bungalows are less crowded together but all rooms are basically the same. Price only varies...

We were staying here during the full moon period in august 2012 and stayed here for 6 nights. The bungalow is very, very basic. I think you could get better bungalows for the same price on the island (we had some better for the same price around Thailand). The bed was hard but the room was spacious. The bungalow is okay if you only need it to sleep in it. We enjoyed our time at Blue Lotus Resort. Especially Pong is very welcoming. The restaurant has a nice menu with a couple of good Mexican dishes.

Pong offers scooters for a good price, we hired one, and we found out that this was the best scooter we hired with good maintenance! So we felt pretty safe on it. The location of Blue Lotus is very convenient on the island. With scooter it is a 10 minute ride to Haad Rin and also a 10 minute ride to Thongsala. The 7-11 is at +/- 2 km. During the full moon Pong offered us cheap rides (cheaper then shongtaew/taxi) to the party. Also a big plus: at Blue Lotus it is quiet with no noise of the parties at Haad Rin.

When we left Blue Lotus Pong offered us a free ride to the pier! High service! I would highly recommend this place (also when there is no full moon because of the location).

Stayed here during the half moon, went of a basic sea view fan room 400bhat a night, and have to say was well worth the money, we were the only ones staying on our first night and were treated like royalty it was like having out own private beach, the owner and his wife are really welcoming and willing to take u anywhere for a small fee, beach is lovely but it's abit out of the way for most things so taxi or moped is a must! remember this is a budget hotel so you get what you pay for, but it was clean and comfortable. And the food was amazing! You need to try the chicken baguette its huge and so cheap! Really enjoyed our stay here!

Pong and his staff are fantastic. They were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The food is great value and very tasty! I would recommend booking one of the rooms with AC when the weather is very hot.

the best place in koh phangan!
i went with 7 of my friends and we had an absolute blast at blue lotus.
Pong, his family and staff were wonderful and caring people with the most amazing food menu on the island!
they have a range of all sorts of foods and put a lot of effort into making sure everyone was always happy with the service.
It was about a 10 minute drive from Haad Rin where the full moon party is and was a perfect distance away from all the noise if you wanted a quiet night in.
Pong also has scooters you can hire for 24 hours.
It was an amazing place with amazing people and I highly reccommend blue lotus. It was one of the highlights of our 5 week adventure!
Thanks Pong, Family & Friends

This is a perfect place to relax, play with the dogs and do nothing. It is right at the beach although there isn't much water in June, when we were there.
The service and Mexican food are great, the owner is a really nice guy. We were in a room across the restaurant and got WIFI in the room.
We would come back and recommend it for sure!

Me and a friend stayed here whilst travelling over thailand on a 2 week trip. when we got to the resort we were both a bit apprehensive as it is very basic. but in fact just what we needed and for the price we paid, couldnt complain!
it is a 10min journey into haad rin where the full moon party was held but only cost 100baht (about £2) sometimes less into town if you bartered with the driver!!
Pong and his staff were so welcoming, and they really made you feel like part of the family. with a great selection of food from all corners of the earth, they were always happy to cook you up whatever you wanted anytime of the day.
On our last day in koh phangan, Pong the owner even gave us a lift to the ferry port!
All in all very basic accomodation.. but didnt spend too long in the room as the beach was literally on our doorstep... most days we were the only people on the beach! heaven!!!
would highly reccomend for a peaceful getaway!!

Room Tip: Would suggest an aircon room as it is very hot with a fan room!
