“One of my best vacation”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

As you can see on my reviews before I stayed already on a very different places in Thailand and around the world. Mostly in up scale 5 Star hotels. This time we wanted to try something different, something back to the nature. And we found it here. For a very very low price we had one of our best vacations. Yes sure you will don't find any 5 Star room service or a large lobby. No but you feel like coming home to good friends when you arrive on this lovely small island and the wonderful Pranee Beach Bungalows. The transport from the airport was very well organised and the small boat trip was a pleasant journey. Our bungalow was ready to move in before 10 am and we find a small basic bungalow. But with everything you need for a beach vacation and very clean. We don't have high expectations as we paid for 9 days less than we often pay for one night. But what can I say? It was brilliant. Our bungalow was one of the budget bungalows. Yes its a small walk away from the beach, not longer than 2 minutes. But because its build behind the other bungalows in a urban field its very private and quite. You can watch nice birds and other animals and enjoy the sea view as well. The bungalow was cleaned daily and even the bed lining and the towels are changed often. So nothing to complain here. The staff and the restaurant staff was very friendly and you will find plenty cheap thai food at the restaurant. The only small shops on the islands are in walking distance and Pranee helps as well to organise day trips and helps with all the stuff you need. The beach / restaurant dog family was the cutest I have ever seen. And you can really see how much they enjoy there life. Sure if you are afraid from dogs you maybe have an issue with this. But they are so friendly that you have fun with them soon.
The island and the beach was one of the best I have seen in Thailand. Nice sand, perfect water and the best. You don't see a lot of people. On about 8 km we see maybe 6 or 10 others. And this is just brilliant. Not much hotels are build around the beaches, that makes them to a real perl on Thailand beaches. So all in all it was for us the best beach vacation we ever had in Thailand. And for sure we will come back. Thanks for the great stay to the complete team. And cu again next year.

Room Tip: Choose the budget bungalows if you want to be private and enjoy some very nice animal contacts. This...

no reception area, no office . very poor greeting did not even ask our name. room not cleaned on first day, queried it with owner and staff who were just sitting around talking. cleaner off sick, could have told us.bungalow itself was fine and situation was close to pier, shops and restaurants .ate breakfast at resort, dogs hanging around at your feet no attempt by staff to get rid of them. whole site very scruffy, motorbikes parked all over the place and the area between the bungalows and the beach was very untidy. could be so much better, clean the site up. have parking area on one side for vehicles and. get rid of the rubbish.

i was booked to stay in Good Dream Hostel and when I arrived it turned out they had overbooked. the man there kindly gave me the option of waiting to see if someone would check out, or staying even closer to the beach at the Pranee Bungalow dorm. i was a little bummed since i had heard such great things about Good Dream but i was excited to be closer to the beach. the room was super bare-bones but definitely did the trick for me. it appeared to be cleaned every day (though being right by the beach you can't really avoid the constant flow of sand and water). there was no hot water in the bathroom which didn't really bother me, and it would be nice if there were a few hooks in the bathroom and even in the dorm room (no place to hang my towel or my wet bathing suit)! it's actually located right at Big Blue Diving school so there are a tone of young people around. this made it pretty easy to meet people on the main dock and by the beach... though i did feel like i was the only one not getting my diving license! (i did the snorkeling trip that Pranee offered though and that was great!)

Pranee bunch bungalows are clean and spacious
Good restaurant here and eveywhere on the beach
Not to much things to do on ko kok kao and as water is not very clean ,forget diving.
you can easily do trip to ko surin and ko tachai (beautiful)
So good place to relax and read/eat but not for swimming.

Room Tip: Don't miss trip to koh tachai

We only stayed one night as I missed my hotel luxuries and do not enjoy sand everywhere in the room gets in the bed and i don't sleep too good. The location was excellent you are on the beach and the food was very good right on the beach. Its very busy with many divers.The rooms are small and we had no soap or toilet paper in the room. We did get a nice big double comfy bed. You can hear everybody talking and walking past outside so not much privacy through the thin wooden walls. I thought a bit pricey at 2000 baht a night maybe because we were only staying one night. Better value to be found but ok for short stay.

He has reviewed another accomodation: Pranee Bungalows in Ko Tao!
We are not busy with divers, and we dont have thin wooden walls.
Also, outside each bungalow we have a foot bath where you can clean your foots and
legs before you enter the bungalow

This was the last main destination during our 2 and a half week trip in Thailand after visiting Khao Lak and Khao Sok National Park. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful island before returning home. We were greeted so warmly by Pranee and knew instantly that we were going to love it here and it ended up far exceeding our expectations. The small bungalow resort is not luxurious (but the bungalows are clean and well equipped) and there are not many facilities apart from the restaurant and hair braiding (our Daughter had this done, highly recommended!!) but it was absolutely perfect for us. The service was extremely personal, the food in the restaurant was great, and it had a great atmosphere. Having drinks around the rustic beach bar overlooking the water with the sun setting was absolutely beautiful. Every morning we were greeted warmly for breakfast, and the view was fantastic sitting at the restaurant looking out to sea. Nothing was any trouble, even our Daughter wanting curry for breakfast one morning was absolutely no problem, and the staff would do their best to ensure that all of their guests enjoyed their stay. Family members stayed a few kilometres up the beach at C&N Resort which was a really lovely resort but we were so pleased that we chose to stay at Pranee Beach Bungalows, a really special, memorable place which we would love to go back to one day. As there were no reviews on Trip Advisor I was a bit hesitant in booking to stay here, but on this occasion my gut instinct was definitely correct.

Room Tip: Definitely book a beach front room. There aren't many rooms so booking early is definitely recom...
