My new fiance took me here for 3 nights of sun, beach, and relaxation in paradise that is Koh Phangan, and we had a magnificent stay!
Let me first say that Koh Phangan island is gorgeous and heaven on earth. Skip on Koh Samui or any of the other touristy islands (unless you like crowds), Koh Phangan is more pristine, unspoiled and tranquil. The island's brought to fame by its Full Moon and Half Moon and (insert the blank) Moon parties.
Utopia Resort sits on top of a hill on the north side of the island. It overlooks a private beach and is ultra peaceful and romantic. We stayed in the "F" section that directly overlooks to the waters and loved our room. There is outdoor shower (in au natural) and a jacuzzi that also sits out on the balcony. At night, there's absolutely no noise and you can truly enjoy being one with nature and appreciating it all.
Staff is friendly and helpful. Gal at the counter arranged day trips as well as helped us book speedboat tickets to return back to Bangkok. The restaurant serves delicious food, in particular the Utopia Fried Rice! Free WiFi in the lobby area only, but that's okay because the point is to catch a break from technology and the outside world, right?
There are mosquitoes on Koh Phangan. So be prepared and bring your bug sprays. They tend to come out at dusk. We were fine during the day.
We were so sad to leave this place. Utopia Resort and Koh Phangan left us with treasured memories though. Would love to return one day, soon!
