Came to Koh Phangan for one thing and was to exprience the infamous Full Moon Party. My advice is to come a day or two before the actual party. Flew into Koh Samui and caught a 40 min ferry ride to this small quaint island. If you book this hotel make sure the ferry takes you to Thong Sala Pier and not Haad Rin Queen pier. It will eliminate 40 min of traveling time to get to the hotel, since Thong sala is only 15min away. With this being said the hotel is further away from the hustle and bustle of Haad Rin beach and is more peaceful and serene. WIth one one of those pick up truck bus shuttle (no taxi/tuk-tuk on this island) it can take up to an hour to get from the hotel to the party. However I do not recommend and do exercise precaution if you are daring enough to rent a scooter like so many people do in K.P. It is a very hilly and steep ride from the hotel to Had Rin beach (where all the action takes plc), can be super dangerous when it rains, but will save you time and give you the freedom to explore at your own leisure...................back to the hotel. A concrete block modern contemporary diagonal buliding right on the beach. The hotel was $55USD/night and we didnt have to stay for 4 nights like most place do during the FMP. As compared to other beach front hotel in K.P and during the time of the FMP this was a wonderful deal. However it is a tad bit away frm the party takes about 30min on a scooter and 1hr on those shuttle truck. If you plan to drink and be merry my advice it to hail a pick up shuttle truck and be safe. The hotel has a great restaurant on the beach, cheap and with a fire show on the wknd. The beach is perfect and nice to sun bathe and watch the beautiful sunset just steps away from your hotel. It has an amazing pool that you can jump into from your bedroom! It is located in a nice quiet area surrounded by mountains and greenery, very peaceful and tranquil. It really gives you that island exotic feel when your escaping to this remote part of the world. The rooms are big, comfy
the basic to change clothes and sleep,since you will be spending more time outdoors than indoors. My only irk is since we had the suite, (the only room with the balcony that faces the ocean) we were robbed from our sleep, cus the restaurant below us played nonstop House music til 4am (I believe they only do this during the wk of the FMP).
SO my advice get the room further away from the restaurant where your balcony faces the pool. Oh and do not lose your key! It will cost you $30USD. Overall a nice hotel, providing you the basic, good food with the beach in front of you and inexpensive just a tad bit further from the party.
