Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Jomtien Beach, Thailand

Ziggy Stardust is an established resort situated on the West Coast of the island of Koh Phayam. This is my second time visiting the island. The resort is now under new management and is currently being upgraded in all areas.
I was happy with a Fan Room, with connected bathroom, hot water and and 24 hour electricity. My friends requested rooms with A/C, those rooms are some what more spacious and a bit closer to the beach. Each room has a balcony and hammock. Beds are comfortable and clean, clean towels are available upon request. Soap and and body wash are also available in each bathroom.
The new managers of Ziggy Stardust are brining their expertise in beer making and baking to the resort. During my stay the menu, and was limited, but the Pizza's were excellent as well as the draft beer.
The staff was most friendly and accommodating in request we made, I suspect in the next few weeks to months the upgrades in both the rooms, kitchen and grounds will be complete, making this a very popular place in Ao Yai, Koh Phayam.

Had an amazing 4 nights at Ziggy Stardust! Stayed here once before years ago and I have to say the improvements the new management have made recently are incredible, including the addition of a/c in all rooms, repainting, electricity 24/7 (not always the case elsewhere on Koh Phayam), and a huge deck extension at the restaurant for watching sunset.

Food was delicious at Brew Lagoon. Breakfast was included and came with many options, including vegetarian and vegan. They have a big menu with many options you won’t find on Ao Yai, which is a nice change from the typical beach menu at other resorts. Not to mention they have their own craft beer + wine on tap!

The staff were excellent and always very polite and helpful. Rooms were clean and steps away from the beach. Location is quiet and peaceful but still within walking distance of the other sections of Ao Yai.

Would definitely recommend staying here!

Booked at Ziggys for 5 nights and were lucky enough to add 5 nights. It's one of those places where you can just chill and relax. Very clean room. Waking up and walking to the beach for a morning swim. Eating a yummie fresh burger and drinking a freshly brewed beer while overlooking the Andamam Sea for lunch....... priceless! The staff is great and always helpfull. Can't wait to visit again next year!

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT.

Ziggy Stardust has been transformed from a beautiful paradisiacal location to a tacky gordy tourist trap. The new manager has decided that basically no Thai food on the menu and no Thai beer is a good idea. Gone are the days of some of the best food on the island coupled with well priced Thai beer cans, only to be replace with a disappointingly predominantly western menu with the only beer being a craft beer at THB180 per glass, served from a very tacky tuk-tuk on the deck.

The renovations to the room were well overdue and credit where credit is due the rooms are massively improved. The bed is comfy and the pillows are nice, as is the inclusion of a safe and mini fridge. Unfortunately that’s where the positives end.

“Assistant manager” is rude and unwelcoming, completely unlike what Ziggy Stardust was before.

The new manager seems to have no clue of what this resort was and should be. It used to have the most amazing menu of Thai food with some western staples, only to be replaced by a western menu with an insulting three Thai dishes. To top that off it is now displayed on an extremely tacky light up menu display above the “bar”. Throughout our trip the restaurant was empty every night, except New Year’s Eve. There is also no breakfast menu at all for guests, which seems a weird choice as you are essentially asking an entire resorts worth of paying customers to spend there money elsewhere.

The location is still amazing but I worry for the direction the new manager is taking this resort in.

It breaks my heart to write this review, as someone who has been coming to Ziggy Stardust since 2016, but the new manager has taken something special and removed everything that made it so.

We absolutely loved our stay here, right on long beach and amazing air con in the villas. The is a restaurant on the beach also here. Great service from all the staff. We booked directly with them and got it a bit cheaper than the accommodation sites. We are definitely staying here again next year.

My partner and I had a blast during our beachfront bungalow stay right before Songkran 2024. The room was clean and had everything we could ask for. We opted for the transfer service from the airport to the pier and then straight to the resort – talk about convenience! ✨⭐️

Our room was spotless upon check-in, and one side of the window faced the ocean, making it a dream to wake up to those stunning views right from our bed. 🌊

Breakfast was a treat! We were offered a choice of freshly made sandwiches or wraps that were absolutely scrumptious. On my last day, I tried the Thai rice boiled soup, and it was a flavor explosion! 🤤

And the highlight? Swimming with plankton at night right off the beach where we stayed. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Just a heads up, this activity requires caution, but it's definitely worth it for the magical glow! ✨🌊

Absolutely recommendable accommodation!
The rooms have been freshly renovated: large and clean. The bungalows are located directly on the beach of Ao Yai, there really is no better location.
Service staff are always friendly and helpful and solve problems immediately.
Be sure to try the homemade pizza!
Looking forward to the next time! :)
