After reading and relating to previous reviews I can only wholeheartedly agree with them all and add that I cannot overstate how much Peter and Nang added to my Koh Phangan experience.
Invaluably helpful and superb company.
Their place is a multilevel labyrinth of fitness, great dining, views, mint pool table on the highest view point and a sauna three stories below.This is a pristine venue with a great atmosphere that I highly recommend.

“Great food, location and hosts - a Haad Yao must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

We discovered Haad Yao Lounge and Fitness more than a year ago when looking for a regular gym to use during our long term stay on Koh Phangan - we saw various choices on the island, but chose there as we loved the idea of working out to such a great view so near to the beach, and the facilities are more than suitable for us (outside cardio machines, stretch mats etc., with weights and resistance machines inside). We soon discovered that it had much more to offer. The upstairs open lounge is far away from the atmosphere of a gym – though you can buy protein shakes and health drinks – basically a great place to hang out or relax after the beach or a workout e.g. good music and conversation, TV, pool table and plenty of space to lay back or find a hammock to swing in should that be where your mood takes you. Sunset often runs into fun evenings as it's the perfect spot for a party warm-up. Nang runs the kitchen and turns out great food, be it authentic Thai or good solid European 'comfort food', and Peter does a fine cocktail should that be your sunset choice. As others have said here, Pete and Nang both really are great hosts, always cheerful and helpful with any questions about the island life, providing reliable recommendations if you need them.

“Wonderful atmosphere and great hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

I've stayed in Haad Yao for a month and been working out in the gym every day. The atmosphere and the hospitality of Nang and Peter is the best. They are so nice and helpful, and everyday I'm looking forward to chatting with them.

The gym is small, but enough to make a proper workout. Many cardio-machines situated outside together with an area for yoga exercises. The view from the outside area is amazing (see the image).

Nang is a marvellous cook and she makes the best Chicken Massaman and green curry I've tried in all of Thailand!!

I can only give my best recommendation!!

“Highly recommended! Would defiantly go back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

I was recommended by a friend to come here, and it did not disappoint!

The food is incredible, Nang caters to your taste and not once was I disappointed with a meal I had there, and I had many!

The lounge is a clean, chilled out vibe where you can eat, drink, play pool, or just enjoy the good music and amazing views out to the ocean.

Nang and Peter are so friendly and make you feel welcome straight away! Always smiling with lots of helpful tips about the island and they know all the best parties to go to!

I didn't use the gym but it was by far the best one I'd seen on the island, set in a nice area with views out to sea!

I would defiantly come back here and Nang and Peter couldn't of done enough for me during my stay here, great friends made, this is a must visit if your on the island!

Thanks Nang & Peter for everything love Bex
