“Paradise on earth”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

This is paradise!

We have visited this beautiful island respectively in this resort for the third time now. The resort has everything you need to enjoy a perfect break-away from your daily routine. The staff is so friendly and helpful and will assist you with any wish or concern you have. The food is very delicious and for those who do not like authentic local dishes the resort offers some international food as well.

We always chose to book the beachfront bungalows because of the stunning sea view. You will find everything there you need for a vacation on this island. Certainly it is not materialistic luxury like a TV or anything else but you don’t need that at all. The island and the resort itself are very quiet. You won’t find locations to party every evening but will meet travellers who also appreciate the beauty of the island itself.

Ko Bulon Lae is not easy to access but in the past we have decided to spend some little extra money for a private car (Hat Yai airport to Pakbara Pier) and boat transfer to the island. On first glance this seems to be more expensive but in the end you pay this extra money to people who really need it. So we think it is worth it. Just ask the staff a few weeks prior to arrival.

If you do not need a 5-Star-Hotel, a disco or a TV but instead want to experience how luxurious simple life can be, then you should think about visiting Koh Bulon Lae and the Pansand Resort. The real luxury of this (not anymore secret) hideaway is that time doesn’t matter at all, the only constant things are sunrise and sunset as well as high tide and low tide.

And by the way, this is the perfect place to marry. Just tell the staff what you want (Thai or European style) and they will take care of everything. Inviting the staff and their families to your party is always a good option…

i found this peaceful beach and pandsand resort when i return trip from Lipe Island, the Bundhaya speedboat left from Lipe at 0900 am and drop 2 couples tourist at Boulon island around 09:30 am,, then i jump out from the boat into the local longtail boat to Boulone Island and i found one nice resort name Pansand resort (you have to pay boat fees THB 50-nett per person) there is no exaclty pier, you have to jump out from speedboat to longtail boat with your baggage (a bit complicated), luckily that i had one small handbag with me, the beach so beautiful, fine whitesand and less busy than Lipe at all, no long tail boat park infront of the beach as lipe island
i visted around Pansand resort and had lunch there, food was fine and staff were friendly (not many staff there), if you like to stay in air condition room, then, this is not the place for you, but, if you love to stay in peaceful beach and not crowded with group of tourist, so, here is the heaven for you to stay and lay down on the fine sand beach in front of the hotel, the size of room is not too big and the resort has about 5 different room type, all with electic fan and it is convenience for 2 persons, if you come with small kid, you may book family bungalow, i spent time about 3 hrs there and continue my tirp to other island by longtail boat, it was a fun trip under the sun but it was so wonderful trip, Pansand resort should be the best available hotel avaialble on Bulone island, i found another 2 resort on Bulone island but i still consider to stay at Pansand in my next coming trip to this beatiful and peaceful island, well, the resort is closed during monsoon season from May onwards

We left Ko Lipe for Ko Bulon without knowing this island, and it was really a very nice surprise for us to explore it! Wonderful nature, very clean and nice accomodation at Pansand Resort, nice sea and garden. Compliments to the professional and friendly staff, they just made us to feel at home. We met old couples who live on this island for 5-6 months, and we can understand them, why... It is a real paradise.

Pansand resort is quite simply wonderful. The beach is spectacular, clean and beautiful. The resort is nicely laid out with enough privacy even when it's busy. The staff are very friendly and efficient and always willing to help. Food in the restaurant is really fresh, beautifully cooked and served with a smile, plus they made alterations for me as a vegetarian and created new dishes not on the menu. It is the most expensive resort on the island but worth paying the extra for the view, the well organised way they do things and the sense of tranquility. The huts are clean, have a fan, a safe and many have great views of the beach. The showers are cold but this is not a problem as its so hot outside. There is also wifi and computers on in the evening. Its also possible to get a very good massage, for a very reasonable price, in the shade next to the sea (wonderful!)

We have visited a few times over the years and have never been disappointed, plus the staff have always helped us with our travel plans, organising any onward transport we needed, days trips out to other islands.

This is a special place and they helped us organise our wedding there, (including looking after our 30+ guests many if ehom had never been to Thailand before) which I would highly recommend to any couple thinking of getting married abroad (please get in touch if you want advice about this as I'd be happy to tell you about our experience). Definately worth a visit here to experience relaxation at its best and to experience this paradise for yourself

We did not have a booking or a plan, where to stay, when we arrived on Koh Bulon. From the boat, the neat little bungalows of the Pansand Resort at this sweeping stretch of the beach looked very inviting and we just walked in and sked for a room. They gave us a new, better bungalow at the end of the beach. But we had to pay 1.800 Baht which was really to expensive. The bungalow was nice, it was clean and there was room service every day. But there is only cold shower (which is fine - just the price is to high) and there is electricity from 6pm to 6am. Staff of the hotel is medium friendly. But they do have a nice restaurant - this staff is really nice. But you should not expect a professional service. This is still quite an untouched island and has a bit of a remote feeling - therefore, nothing is really professional which is nice. The beach and the island are wonderful! I would give the resort more points - but the price is too high.

Basic rooms with electricity only from 6pm - 6am. Which is a bit challenging fir us city folks! Nice relaxing setting, good beach. Sandflies are about - so be prepared with creams for bites. Good food and service in the restaurant but you have to eat during their opening times (I guess they go to mosque during closures)
English is spoken by most. Nice relaxing few days.

We've been to Koh Bulon Lae three times. We've not stayed in Pansand since it lacks cosy athmosphere and feels a bit abandoned.
Last stay (2010) we visited Pansands' restaurant for first time. We were warned that food might not be so fresh, but we just wanted to give a try. Bad mistake. We were group of six and four of us got really bad food poisoning (just 12 hours after lunch...). Two of us had to visit doctor at home since their condition was still so bad. The only common thing we ate was rice. Apparently it had been cooked and left in warm place for hours.
Island is full of really good small restaurants (chao lae seafood being most original, but also with amazing food) - so go there, not Pansand.
