“great pools!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Enjoyed our stay here, very beautiful location and the pools was amazing! However the rooms we booked was quite budget but we felt that we where in a block in the car park and away from the rest of the resort. We didn't get wifi in the room and you could hear every vehicle that pulled up. You was also quite a walk to the restaurants and pool. The BBQ on the beach was amazing, great price and quality, very romantic. Would recommend the resort but not the rooms we stayed in, pay the little extra.

Thank you Tanya! We all appreciate your stay and compliments.
Loyfa Natural Resort has total 10 rais (16000 sq.m.) area; the cottages, villas, swimming pools and restaurant are settled around the resort according to the geography that's why our guests enjoy the atmosphere and a feel-like-home touch.
Our Standard Double Room is the only room type that does not have a sea view. Others which are Superior, Deluxe, Suite, Beachfront or Pool Villa have the views of the ocean and closer to the beach. Also, please note that the resort provides free wifi all over, we will inform our maintenance team to have the connection checked up.

We'll improve our operation and take care of the resort in order to have better accommodation.
Thank you again for your comments. We're looking forward to your next stay with us :)

We stayed here for 4 nights and found the the Resort to be just what we were looking for. The room was clean, nicely appointed, and AC worked great! Our rate included breakfast, which was a nice variety of prepared dishes, fruit, cereal, fruit, coffee, tea, juices, and made to order omelets and eggs. We also enjoyed the BBQ Dinner on the beach. We would recommend this hotel.

Got a basic double room, and it was very basic, can get much more for your money (especially in Thailand!)
Decor very dated, bed uncomfy...just needs a massive upkeep! Our room was in a block practically in the car park of the hotel...even before reception so we had none of the
Lovely gardens the rest of the resort is built in.
Wifi didnt work in room for whole stay (3 nights)
We got woken up 2 mornings by building work at 9am.
Pool area is beautiful!! So relaxing. Had bbq on the beach whilst watching sunset which was lovely.
Location abut remote.

Basicslly...dont get basic double rooms!!!

Thank you for your review! Yes, the WiFi comes and goes on this island - the price you pay for staying in paradise! In all seriousness, though, we are very aware of the WiFi issues and we are currently talking with both Internet suppliers on Koh Phangan on how we can improve our coverage. We offer a wide range of accommodation for different budgets, and I apologize if you didn't find our double rooms to be suitable, but I sincerely hope the rest of your stay was enjoyable!

Yours truly,

Really lovely friendly & accommodating staff. Since we were travelling with our elderly mother they let us drive her down to the rooms every day. The bedrooms were very spacious which allowed us to spread our bags out. Free Dvd's to borrow. Bed's were very comfortable but could do with an extra pillow. Best rooms near the bar & pool area. Can get dinner served to you from the restaurant while you watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand. It was incredibly hot weather when we there so the air con was a blessing. The pool brand new just a little too warm from the sun. Our own exclusive beach with own masseuse. A BBQ can be held if you didn't wish to use the restaurant. Various types of dishes for all meals. We stayed 5 nights and didn't want to leave. It is a decent drive away from main port so hire of car or bike advisable but can be arranged at Loyfa natural resort. We will be back.

Not a beachhotel but with an amazing view over the ocean.
Great big pool and good tasting thaifood in the restaurant. We stayed only one night in a suite oceanview room. Average room with a big terrace facing the ocean. Sadly almost no waterpressure in the shower.

A nice hotel for 2-3 nights but this is not a beachhotel if you looking for one, takes 6-7 min walking by road to get to one.

Thanks for your comments. However, I'm not quite sure what you mean by us not being a "beach hotel". Loyfa Natural Resort has its own stretch of private beach, complete with clean sand, the sea, and even some coral. There are definitely other beaches within 6-7 minutes walking distance, if for whatever reason you find our private beach is not enough. I would love to hear your specific comments if you would like to e-mail me at aaron@loyfanaturalresort.com.

Thanks again,

Aaron

My friend and I stayed here two nights ago for full moon party. Upon check in we were very pleased with the view from our room as well as the gorgeous pool. All was fine during the day had we had lunch by the pool and then beach BBQ dinner on beach which was very nice and had I had been with my significant other I imagine very romantic little with beach torches etc. We were very confused when paying for all meals and drinks as this hotel as the stupidest system of keeping track of their guests expenditures. Basically I think they carry around a notepad for each room and just tally up whatever you purchase. It was so annoying because if you tried to pay in baht at time of purchase they refused saying you paid later at front desk upon check out so we assumed ok it goes all on credit card, but this isn't true you just pay in thai baht at end which made budgeting how much cash to take out difficult. They arranged our transport to party which was nice and gave us reasonable price, but when we returned from party exhausted and sweaty we found not one but five cockroaches in the bathroom!! huge ones!! as well as a lizard. so no shower post full moon party! real gross. we awoke next morning even more disgusting because electricity had gone out in middle of night killing AC. went to breakfast which was fine minus all the flies over the food but i think is just typical Southeast Asia. went to take quick nap before heading to airport to find a cockroach on pillow. needless to say this hotel just isn't worth it. I know full moon prices can be more expensive and we paid only 65$ for one night but there are some things I cannot deal with it.

Thank you Lauren. I'm sorry you did not have a more pleasant stay here, but we appreciate your comments as it gives us a chance to be critical and improve ourselves for future guests. Re: the cockroaches, there was a sudden influx of bugs and insects during your stay, due to the incoming tropical storm. Because we are a natural resort the trees and shrubs may have attracted more wildlife, but we can assure you and others that your case was certainly the exception and not the norm.

Our billing system was designed for guests who feel more comfortable enjoying their stay without carrying cash, and we realize it may not be comfortable for some guests. We apologize for that and will try to make our system more convenient for everyone.

Sincerely,

Aaron

This was were we stayed to end our trip. We booked it for the full moon party as we wanted to be away from all the noise somewhere we could relax after partying! This was the place to be. It really was like paradise, the reception girls were fabulous offering us water and cold towels on arrival and showing us around the resort. There was 2 pool areas both were amazing couldn't fault a thing, with massage shacks on the beach/private beach I may add! The food was five star by far and the bar staff, waiters and handyman were amazing couldn't do enough for us. Dropping us to the full moon party and into town when we needed it. The hotel organised our ferry and our flights home also. The best hotel we stayed in in our 3 weeks touring the south of Thailand. We will most defo be back!!!!!!

Room Tip: Garden view was perfect for us :)
