“Do stay there, even if the place is kindda crappy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Got one of the cheapest rooms ; 1500 bath for a fan bungalow is expensive, but you pay for the place.

The bungalow has holes in the walls and windows and isn't even equipped with a mosquito net (!).
The extra bed they made us pay 600bath for was a 1cm large futon...

But the view was amazing and it is extraordinary to be able to snorkle in Koh Nang Yuan when all the groups left the island (after 5pm and before 11am) ; so I'd suggest you go there and be prepared to waste money on a crappy accomodation.

Room Tip: If you chose one of these cheap rooms, the F5 that we got has a beautiful view.

We stayed here for one night. It was perfect. The room was nice and air conditioned. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was delicious and large and included. You can't Beat the location. Recommended for a short and romantic stay. Good Internet in the lobby only.

Tv had no English channels. Bathroom shower pressure was a little low, but still warm.

Room Tip: A view of the sandbars

We were only passing through this island however we were disgusted at is dirtiness considering it is a privatley owned island. In addition to this everything was overpriced including food, alcohol and the dive school on the island. It would be a rip off to stay here in general. There is alot of hype towards this island but we were stuck there for two hours and had enough after fifteen minutes, I would of been really disappointed with my holiday if I had of booked accommodation here.

Well, only ok for a short term stay !!! First what kind of stupid restaurants you need to pay for the water ??? Their restaurant staff will use their terrible English to stop you fill in water from counter, no matter cold water or hot water , and plus their food has so limit choice. Yes, live there can enjoy the beach and snorkeling after all the tourist go away. But the restaurant just maxxxxx terrible! It almost ruin my impression of koh nang yuan. But never let your happiness effected by others lol


However the hotel reception and staff is very nice. They are super nice so I feel its lucky.

Nangyuan island is nice and quiet, but that's it, it is not as good as diving in koh Tao, if I still visit next time, I might bring a max number of water lol

I'm reviewing this as an attraction, not a hotel because I can't find it listen elsewhere.

I DID NOT STAY ON THE ISLAND.

However, I took a day trip from Koh Phangan and really enjoyed myself with friends.
We stopped to snorkel in the mid morning, before arriving at the (I believe now privatized) Nangyuan Island. We got free time to ourselves and after a buffet lunch (average) we decided to climb to the summit. The path goes along the beach and then up into the jungle. Highly recommend insect repellant! And take water, it is hot and steamy under those trees!
The view from the top is amazing though and definitely worth sweating it out with your companions! you will laugh about it later when you're dumping a big bottle of cold water on your head!

Be warned though that up at the summit it is not pathway friendly. You WILL have to climb up rocks!

Stayed November 2012, traveled with friends

After staying at the amazing Sensi Paradise we thought we would spend 2 nights on what was said to be "paradise" but the service and actual rooms were shocking. This island caters for all the ferries that bring in day trips, not the guests staying on the island. The food was shocking, service shocking, rooms old and smelled of moth balls. But the views were the most spectacular views I have ever seen in my life and the actually snorkelling is amazing. But this should be kept as a day visit ONLY

Room Tip: Do not stay in any of the rooms

Stunning Island. Once we got there we had to extend our stay. The beach is perfect, the sunset is wonderful, diving staff very professional, hotel staff very friendly. Regarding the restaurant the buffet is poor but the a la carte menu is very good.

The bungalow was nice and clean with stunning view over the island.

It is expensive having in mind Thai standards but still affordable for European or American standards.

Just have in mind that this is an Eco Resort so there's no luxury. If you're looking for the real thing and to keep in simple with the best natural location possible. This is the place.

Room Tip: You can choose the room from the resort's site.
