Amazing hotel! Such a good atmosphere at the pool with deadly music. Staff were so kind (especially Kib) ! Very welcoming right from the start. May be a 10 min walk from the FM but it is definitely worth it! Cannot wait to go back at the end of our trip! No where compares to it!

Room Tip: Room 1 - 5 are the best :)

Hey Sally well after this review we’ll be even more welcoming when you come back in July! Thanks so much and you gave Kib a big smile from ear to ear after I showed her your review. Enjoy the rest of your trip and we’ll see you poolside in a few weeks.

A truly great place from which to base a vacation. My wife & I always look for a boutique places with restuarants, pools, wifi and when available, beach & sunset views. This resort satisfied all of those requirements and simply made it a wonderful place to wake up to each morning.

We stayed in Room #2 which was an ocean view spot with a bathtub on the balcony overlooking the pool & ocean. The view itself was fantastic. Room was modern but simple, with a finished concrete floor. Not huge, but you should either be doing something cool in Thailand or sleeping here, and that was perfect for this.

Pool had 3 exceptional things about it: the amazing "infinity" view from the pool chairs & pool itself, the walk up pool bar with stools underwater, and the 1 foot deep "reading deck" where you could lay back, be dry but have the rest of your body in the water.

The sunsets at the COAST were outstanding and depending on the time of year, you can either see it from the beach or from the pool or sometimes, both.

The staff were very friendly & helpful, everything seemed to work just fine so we really had no issues to complain about.

The resort's restaurant was good, plenty of meat, seafood & vegetarian options for dinner and an egg / alacarte dining area that was just fine for breakfast. Good juices & toast / cereal / muesli / yogurt combos available. Pool & pool bar were very enjoyable hangs with mellow but melodic electronic music filling the air & providing a nice vibe. A couple of days they also played some Cuban music which was nice, but the Brazilian ballad versions of top 40 cheezy hits were a bit too much for breakfast.

The location was also fine, about 10 minute walk from the business district & beach of Haad Rin and about a 15 minute songtaeew ride to Thong Sala & Ban Tai. Only a couple good restaurants in Haad Rin, we most enjoyed Beach Lounge up the road in Thong Sala. Seems like it's location is convenient place to go as it is close to the Haad Rin pier, a very short 45 minute ferry ride from Big Buddha Pier on Koh Samui. And then just a quick ride to most places on the west side of the island, about a 45 minute ride to Koh Ma, great snorkeling up in the northwest corner.

The hotel also offers a complimentary shuttle / van ride to & from the Haad Rin Pier on Koh Phangan so make sure you get a ferry ticket to that pier and not to Thong Sala, which is quite a bit further away. If you make this mistake you won't be completely screwed, it will just cost you a bit more time & money but you can get there with a songtaeew.

Overall, probably a 4.5 review total as the rooms themselves were more 4 star than 5 star, but the quality of the experience & feel were excellent. Pretty good value for a seaview room, it was expensive for Thailand but well worth it. There were a few families here and the kids loved the pool, but overall I'd say this establishment leans toward a younger, trendier & cooler vibe, which was great for us. Definitely the best spot we saw on Koh Chang, we were thrilled with our choice to stay here.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms or penthouse room is where it's at.

Thanks for the “solid” review as promised and I don’t know where to start other than a thanks and a hope that you can indeed rejoin us early next year for us to show our appreciation and make our resort and Haad Rin Nai beach an even more wonderful place to wake up to each morning. It’s heartening to hear that you loved not only the service and atmosphere but also the little extra features and services the resort has to offer …. I’m also a big fan of the 1 foot deep "reading deck" that allows you to lay back (with a cocktail), be dry but have the rest of your body in the water and take in the sunset. We’re always taking on board guest comments and recommendations for improvement so hopefully we can perfect the rooms by the time you return so that next time you’ll feel like giving us a 5.5 review. Take care and you see both n 2014.

Stayed here on my third visit to the island. The resort is well located to the ferry. The staff are very friendly and the pool and gym are very good. The water quality in the pool was below par as at night you could see a lot of dirt In it. The rooms are nice but quite basic if you look beyond the initial minimalistic design, i felt that the price was high compared to similar spec hotels I've stayed in on the island.

Dear Steve, I’d firstly like to apologize for the condition of the pool during your stay as this is such an important feature of our resort and such an important part of creating the positive holiday feeling during your stay. We unfortunately experienced one or two problems with our pool filter system in the first half of the year but with a new system now in place we’re thankfully assured of crystal clear water all day every day to make the infinity-pool view and feeling perfect. I hope that you choose us again for your fourth visit to KP so you can get the full 5/5 feeling that we usually give and don’t forget to contact us direct and take advantage of our previous guests’ Friends Of The Coast privileges to ensure you feel you’re getting 5/5 value for money. Thanks for the review and please feel free to email me direct with any suggestions for further improvement; your experienced views as a traveller to this island would be greatly appreciated by myself and the team here.

Sooo many amazing things to say about koh phangan, it's truly paradise!! But what really made it memorable was the coast resort :).... Everything from the rooms, the location, the food, the bars, the pools and beach were unbelievable.... We stayed at a lot of places in Thailand and nowhere came close!!! But what's so amazing about this place is the staff, so warm, genuine and attentive to every need. Adam and the crew there are the best! Without them our holiday never would've been this good.... Treat yourself next time you're in Thailand and stay at the coast!! Guarantee you won't regret it ;) ;)

Hey Matty I couldn’t agree more; Koh Phangan is truly paradise and I’m glad that me and “the crew” made it even more memorable. But it’s easy to be genuine when our guests are too; you were just as friendly and genuine to all the team here. Hope to see you guys back here for New Year’s Eve; Mitch tells me he’s bringing half of Australia …. I’ve kept his Nike Swoosh in lost property by the way; he left it at the pool-bar!

My wife, 3 children and I have just returned from koh phangan after two fantastic days staying at the lovely The Coast resort.
We arrived at the resort on Friday the 3rd of may evening. To our pleasant surprise on arrival at haadrin pier, there was a driver waiting for us. We had travelled on a passenger ferry from Samui full of people heading for the half moon party and were so relieved when we arrived at the resort which seemed like a tranquil oasis in the midst of koh phangans party scene. We were travelling with our 2 year old, 5 year old and 7 year old. Steven and his eteam at front office were very attentive and efficient. The rooms very clean with a lovely design in the bathrooms. The next morning we awoke to the amazing view of a gorgeous infinity pool with a very unique finish to it. The sea was just beautiful our kids swam for 5 hours straight! The swim up bar is a must try. James and his fllo

Hi Mr. Brian sir and the family. It appears that you’ve given your review a second thought and decided to upgrade your scoring; well thanks for taking the time in the first place to write a supportive review and then thanks even more for upping your rating of us. I’m glad to hear that each member of the family enjoyed their days here with us and I think it’s a testament to what we’re trying to do here that not only can we provide a trendy resort for the islands party goers to come to (as we’re near to all the action) but that we create such a hidden away feeling that peace and relaxation is able to be found for couples and families. It gives me great pride in my team when I see guests on first-name terms with them as it shows that they’re making our guests feel truly welcome in The COAST Resort way; you really now are Friends Of The COAST.
