Cookies's Salad Resort
Ranked #18 of 91 Hotels in Ko Pha Ngan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 November 2011

My husband and I stayed at Cookie's last year, we had a group of 13 of us and the staff were fantastic. We love the food in the restaurant and staff we very welcoming. We stayed in the brand new bungalow over the sand down by the pool. If you want your room cleaned you simply left your room key in a little basket near reception in the morning and it was done that day for you. Haad Salad is a beautiful beach. The rest of our crew had various rooms throughout the resort and they were equally fantastic, the other bungalows were great and the hotel rooms were great also. All offering lovely views. No one had any issues with the rooms or the beds etc. Yes, the resort is on a hill but even the high season rates here are very affordable. We also looked at it as our daily exercise. We hired mopeds through the resort too.

The pool is great too, the kids that were with us loved it. Any activity we wanted to do we booked through the resort and they organised a car to pick us up and take us to our destination. For those who didn't ride a moped we just asked the staff if they could organise us a taxi and that was never a problem.

We're heading back to Cookie's in January, we can't wait to relax there and see the staff again.

beautiful view but thats it.
the hotel is located on the side mountain with great view so sit and relax at susnet drinking coctail at happy hour time.
rooms were disgusting and i am not exaggerating, must have been 10 years since cleanup.
the shower was unbearable, the bed was terrible.
when you get in the room it smells like mold.
I would recommend going to salad beach, it is a beautiful beach.
just not to cookie's salad.

We've been to Cookies's Salad resort for 2 nights during our honeymoon in Thailand, and we've enjoyed every moment with the amazing staff.
First of all, when we've landed in Koh-Phangan, it was a very rainy day, but the hotel owner herself came to pick us up, and even gave us her umbrella!
The hotel is located in Haad Salad, a quiet little bay in north west of Koh-Phangan.
The view from the room was outstanding! the hotel observes the whole beach, and from every room we could have seen all of it.
There are only 2 "problems" with this hotel: It's isolated from any activities around (The area is closed at 10 PM), and the restaurant that serves a too small dishes.

This place is highly recommended for couples, who want to relax from all the noise and parties in Haad-Rin, and enjoy they beauty and quietness of the area.

This place is such good value. It has a lovely (small -ish) pool and is on a really relaxing beach. The breakfast was really great and filling. The rooms had mosquito nets, fridge, tv's and felt really clean. The staff were really helpful in helping us book various trips. We paid the equivalent of £26 a night for two people. Well worth it!

We got a bed that must have been 10 years old. The springs were completely ruined and we both woke up with a sore back.
The view from the balcony of our room was really lovely and we would have stayed if there was some atmosphere at the restaurant. The other big minus for us is that we like to travel on bikes and the hill getting to a from the hotel was an accident waiting to happen. Oh and the pool was not clean.
After the two nights we had already paid for on the net had passed we were already booked into another hotel for the remainder of our stay on the island.
I suggest booking one or two nights are seeing if this beach and hotel are for you. As I said we may have just been unlucky as it was the low season and they may not have had all staff on board, but we will not go back there.

Room Tip: Best to check the bed if you plan on having a decent nights sleep.

Cookies Salad was a great escape after the intense bustle of Bangkok. We felt like we had our own private beach oasis. We stayed in the room on the very top, right corner and it was just perfect. We had a beautiful view and a hammock to swing in while we weathered out the rain we had our first day there. The trek up to the top part of the hotel is pretty steep but it's not that bad. I recommend bringing a small flashlight in case you wander around at night as the pathway and stairs aren't very lit up. The restaurant had good food and there were some other nice options if you take a short walk down the beach. The staff were pretty friendly and helpful as far as getting rides places, etc. They picked us up from the ferry when we arrived and dropped us off as well, as it's pretty far north from where the ferry comes in. The setting is beautiful. There weren't many people there when we went (there were protests happening in Bangkok at the time) so the hotel was quiet and the pool area always had a chair, although their lounge chairs aren't very comfortable, so we'd usually go to the resort next door and lay on theirs with cushions! ha. I'm not sure if it would be different during a busier time. I wouldn't recommend staying in the room right over/next the pool (unless maybe you have kids in tow), as I think it would be pretty loud with people and kids splashing under you.
If you are feeling adventurous, ask some of the locals how to get to the bar up the hill behind the beach that is in a tree. We saw a local Thai band playing reggae and ska and it was the most fun night we had in Thailand!
If there were direct flights straight to Koh Phangan my house in the US, I would go back to this place in a heartbeat! (our train trek from Bangkok was quite the experience, you may want to inquire about flying if you're not up for the night train). It's a beautiful spot and perfect if you want to get away from it all!

We travel to Asia every year for at least a month and have stayed in many hotels of many standards. Cookies rates up there at the top. Fantastic location, the best staff you could hope to meet let alone look after you. Aom the owner is so helpful and business-like. She is kind attentive and helpful.

Food is great, view is spectacular, rooms spacious and stylish. If you are going to Ko Phangan you would be mad not to choose Cookies. Would love to go back one day. Thank you Aom and the rest of staff for the lovely holiday. Howie, Paula, Ethan and Reuben.
