“Ant and bugs world”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I had to write this review to worn everyone.
If you dont like living with ants dont stay here they are everywhere!!!
Its a beautiful resort with an ok beach and a very rocky sea.
The service is average and after ten pm the entire place gets dark and theres only a security guard at reception!!
Also no phone in the room and no easy access out
Sorry but i was really dissapointed of our ants infested room.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in early August after being unable to get seats on a ferry to Koh Tao (book this in advance people!). Doing so changed our view of Koh Phangan for the better.

The beach it is located on isn't the best nor the cleanest on the island, but the resort itself is well kept and efficiently run. The staff were very friendly and the food is very nice and reasonably priced. The breakfast included as part of the room rate was varied and tasty.

The bungalow we were staying in, the superior deluxe, was clean, well laid out and in good condition and we thought it was worth the 2,200 baht a night.

Given the option, we would happily stay at Sarikantang again and would recommend to friends.

Quiet resort with lovely small restaurant and bungalows in many different styles. Not a good idea to expect the 5 star luxury of Samui as this resort is clearly unique in offerering something different. The beach is stunning and every one seems to find their own private space in it, trees align the sand and the views are spectacular. It is true that the water tends to get a little tricky as the ground can have weeds or rocks at the bottom. This did not stop us from swimming.

Our room was a deluxe lanai with bath. The bathroom is beautiful with a very nice stone built bath and great shower. The room itself good size, nice decor and efficient with comfortable mattress. Lovely balcony with hammock.

If you are travelling with small children, it would be a good idea to request a bungalow at a ground floor. There are also nice bungalows overlooking one of the pools which gives a feeling of private access to the pool. During our stay there were many families here with young children. The atmosphere was very nice.

Haadrin centre is a 5 mins walk from the resort although we understood after 2 days that there was no reason whatsoever to leave the place.

Words of warning; the pace at this resort is on the relaxed side so it's better to expect it as you come in. Also the toilets near reception are terrible so if you are unfortunate enough to visit these upon arrival...don't worry it's uphill after that.

I found it hard to leave this place...

Sarikantang is an ok resort if you're in koh Phangan with friends or full moon party...we went for our honeymoon and it didn't exactly feel romantic like our resort in koh Samui did.

Our room and breakfast were fine but the overall appearance of the facility is a little run down. A little landscaping could go a long way there! The beach is just ok too. The sand is a little rough with a lot of rocks and the water wasn't too clean here.

For a honeymoon in Thailand, I would stay on koh Samui...maybe go to koh Phangan for a day trip...

I stayed at Sarikantang over new years with as a group of eleven. It is over the hill from Haad Rin, an easy walk, which ensures that the resort is quiet at night. We found the restaurant to be one of the best on the island. The staff put a lot of effort in to the new years eve celebrations, and were generally very helpful although the front desk is not available 24/7. The beach is clean and very pleasant with small trees overhanging the water. The pool is next to the beach but views are obscured by a hedge (but perhaps providing the privacy you want).

We stayed here for 3 nights while in Koh Phangnan. It is a nice hotel, quiet & low-key. Location was good-a 10 minute walk to the main part of Haad Rin. Included breakfast which was average as were the other items on the menu. The staff are friendly. The pool is nice but the pool deck is super slippery! My 3 year old fell pretty hard as well as several other guests we saw. We did find we were itchy after swimming. Nothing a shower didn't fix. The beach & ocean had lots of seaweed & is much nicer in town. We had a very nice room but had a big ant problem. The staff fixed it right away though.
The hotel was able to arrange a couple boat trips for us. 1st we went with Sababa boat trip. They were great! Took us to several secluded beaches, waterfall, snorkeling etc. They were a lot of fun. I heard that they are a party boat but it was pretty mellow the day we went (but it was off-season). Thanks David, Captain & Bok. 2nd we went on a private long boat tour. Went to many of the same places but went further into the waterfall to a little natural pool & found a nicer place for snorkeling. Captain John was great!

Stayed over full moon party in the room that had direct pool access (amazing) and was located right on the beach. Room was modern and clean and had everything we needed. Beach was great with free hammocks and lounge chairs. It was a short walk into town and to the big beach. There are signs and even a waiver when you check in (and other warnings on trip advisor reviews) that you will be charged for room damage. This made us a bit paranoid so we photoed and pointed out every little knick we found in the room to the reception and they said the policy is really for people who have parties and completely trash the room and/or get paint every where.
