We loved so much your hotel. Very contemporary, so beautiful spot on the beach. Food is maybe the best place in the island of Kho Phangan.Kids loved the pasta and Tuna Sandwichs.
The Atmosphere is chic and good music with the DJ cession.Rooms are simples, but elegants.Just near Hadrin Beach so shopping by feet....Thanks Adam for this special moment...

The hotel has a very cool and modern design; a bar is located near to the pool so that people can drink shakes either from the pool chairs or from the other side. In the pool there is also a shallow water part in which people can lie down and lean their head on its sloping side.
In some days during sunset time, a D.J. plays party warm-up music from the bar which is a perfect match of good music (not too loud), beautiful sunset and a perfect atmosphere.
But more than all is the excellent customer service, great staff, and a manager that spends time sitting at the bar and in the restaurant, happy to help when needed; making sure everyone is having a good time.
We stayed at the beach front villa which is located right next to the pool with an amazing pool and beach view. The hotel was so good that it was really hard to convince our children to go out to the Haad Rin city.

Room Tip: If you're traveling with your family, the beach front villa is an excellent solution

Hi Sarit, Ronen and the kids sorry for the late reply; maybe I spend TOO MUCH time sitting at the bar :) Actually the last few months have been surprisingly busy for our first year and I can honestly say that this success is due to the kind support from people like yourselves; so many many thanks.
May I say that you were an absolutely lovely family from top to bottom and I personally enjoyed your company very much. We all hope to see you back with us next summer if not sooner.

We found The Coast Resort a very quiet resort which is perfect for families or a couple like us. The room that we stayed in (the Sea View!) is spacious and clean, and fully equipped with amenities. We had a great time in our bathtub on the balcony; taking a bath at sunset was amazing. We did try the food at the restaurant and it was very good, especially the duck in tamarind sauce and chicken satay - highly recommended. As for the location, it is not far from the nightlife at all, only 10 minute walk to Haad Rin town or you can pay for the taxi for 50 baht per person. However, the best part is the staff, from the driver to the receptionists to the waiters, everyone had a smile on their face and was willing to help, thumps up to that. Staying at The Coast is definitely the
highlight of our Koh Phangan trip.

Thanks for the review, thanks for the 5 star support and thanks for the "Thumbs up" :D
Seems as though we ticked every box and that we gave you some unique highlights; the smiles from the staff and then the bathtub on the balcony. Hope they're enough to bring you back for another visit in the future.

The best hotel on the island with very helpful staff willing to always go the extra mile. Beach front infinity pools, loungers and bean bags on the beach front (almost all yourself, very quiet). As close to paradise as you can get on an island such as this.

Hi George
Thanks for the 5's all round and your support and great to hear that you appreciated not only that we've created a location that allows you to both enjoy and escape from the island's party scene but more importantly that in our Guest care we try always to go that extra mile ! Glad you loved the beach bean-bags too :)
Hope to welcome you back again!

This was my 6th trip to Koh Phangan (May 2013) and a friend of mine told me about this hotel so I decided to give it a shot and the hotel turned out to be marvelous from every possible aspect.

First, the location was perfect being minutes away from the full moon party yet it's located in a quiet area which is a must in this island. The whole design of the hotel was just amazing and beautifully structured with a breathtaking view and an amazing and pool-bar. Also the staff were very nice and all friendly.

I personally would definitely go back to the same hotel (as a matter of fact, plans being made for November) and more importantly I would definitely recommend this it to anyone visiting Koh Phangan .

Hey Mo
I've said my thanks in private and its about time I said it here ! Thanks bud
It's a shame that we're fully booked for Full Moon November and apologies that we couldn't squeeze you in anywhere last minute but there's always November 2014 and all 12 months between :) Hope you will still come visit us daily this month as you're more than welcome to join us poolside no matter where you're staying.
My eternal thanks once again and hope to see you in a few days!

An uber cool, boutique designer hotel in a stunning location, that's within very easy reach of the action of Haad Rin if you want it, but far enough away if you don't.

If you're a fan of hotels dripping in ostentatious bling or old-world elegance, then The COAST isn't for you. Myself and my wife loved The COAST. It's hip, cool, minimalist chic design really appeals to us and the designer crowd that the hotel attracts.

The beach front/poolside bar plays chill-out tunes through the day, whilst the hotel's stylish patrons recline on loungers and lazy boys or sip amazing cocktails in the black granite infinity pool which edges onto the beach.

The restaurant is more expensive than those in the local town, but the quality of food is very high. My only negative on the restaurant was that the cooked breakfast selection was usually tepid to cold, which was a little disappointing, especially as this is easily solvable with a few metal trays and tea-lights.

The gym is well equipped, perfectly suited to the needs of the tourist looking for a workout and was rarely busy.

The grounds and gardens around the hotel are immaculate.

The rooms are designer stark, with minimal fuss and beds and linens that are super comfortable. The bathroom was big and well designed, my wife's only criticism was that there wasn't enough light with only one high level ceiling up-light and one small spot above the sink.

The staff are friendly and engaging and it's clear that Adam, the excellent, hard working, attentive GM, encourages them to express their individual personalities - something which is often missing in the large hotel chains.

Of all the hotels I stayed in in Thailand, this is by far and away my favourite 5/5.

Room Tip: The pool view rooms are on the ground floor and look over the pool and ocean. The sea view rooms are...

Hey guys hope you're doing well.
Firstly my sincerest apologies for not getting on here sooner and giving you the thanks and appreciation that you deserve for your kind words and support.
Secondly let me expand on those words of support.....
We're happy knowing that we've catered well to the needs of not only a 'Top Contributor' but also a lovely couple; from the design, furniture and facilities to the friendly and attentive service. As for the positive words directed towards myself I am humbly thankful. Such commendations give myself the encouragement needed to keep my team and I doing our best to take care of our Guests.
Thanks so so much and we truly hope to see you both again sooner rather than later !
PS we've finally got hotplates for breakfast to make sure that you can start your days even happier :)

We stayed here for 5 days, travelling with a baby. We expected this hotel to be modern and stylish, which it was. But we also expected it to be a bit noisy, with a younger party crowd, which it was not. It was family friendly, very relaxed, and quiet. The staff are very good - many expats working there, (possibly because there is another resort belonging to the same company soon to open?) Food was nice.
The beach it is not much to look at, but clean and peaceful. The nicer, popular beach is on the east side of the island, but this is only about 1km away, so easy to get to, and you will be happy you are not staying over there, as it is a bit cheap and noisy over there, especially at full moon time.
Minor Criticisms -
There were some ants in the room, but this is probably hard to avoid completely, considering it's a tropical island.
They seemed to be a bit short of housekeeping staff, as it could be quite late in the day before rooms are cleaned.
The rooms are a bit spartan - concrete floors and lack of furniture. Would be nice to have a chair to sit on, or somewhere to put things. There is a small wardrobe, safe etc. Comfy beds.
Breakfast staff a bit scatty. (And the humidity means that none of the salt shakers work!)
Suggestions:
Get the hotel van to collect you from the ferry. We were not in the mood for looking for a taxi, and we were delighted when the driver was waiting for us, grabbed all our bags, and we jumped into a lovely spacious air-conditioned minibus, instead of the local taxis which are just pick-up trucks with bench seats in the back.
Overall - we would go back there again. Very nice.

Room Tip: It is a long property, sloping from the road down to the beach. Reception is at the top, and the bea...

Dear Conor and family
It's good to hear that your holiday with us was more relaxing than expected and that the service team seemed to have taken good care of you.
I'd like to respond to some of your feedback if possible.Unfortunately I believe you were here at the time when we had an unusually low tide which exposed some old coral along our coastline leaving the view not at its best; however this beach is usually beautiful as you said clean, peaceful and when you add palm trees, sand, blue waters, views of Samui across those waters and then daily colourful sunset .... its not so bad :) Its one of the reasons we chose the location; plus its in walking distance to both Haad Rin Nok and Haad Leela beaches.
For the rooms we are looking at design solutions to add a bit more life to the rooms and although we're looking at ways to combat the ants we are as you said on a tropical island so on rare times they'll sneak through; its one of the reasons we don't provide room service unfortunately. As for breakfast we've worked hard on many aspects of this over the last months and feel now that we provide an excellent service to ensure our Guests have the best start to each day.
Thanks for the review, the support and the feedback ... and thanks for the pier transfer tip we offer this free of charge from Haad Rin pier so would love for all Guests to take advantage of this extra luxury.
Take care and hope to see you, Maren and the baby in the future !
