“Best place to stay on Koh Phangan”
Reviewed 8 July 2011

We have been at the Rungarun Bungalows a couple of times in the last 4 years!! It is the best value you can get on the island. There is a nice and clean pool, beautiful bungalows, nice beach and also a beautiful garden. The owners Pan and Kit are very nice and they always care about you.

Enjoy your stay there! Gabi and Gunter

I stayed here with my partner and a few friends to attend the full moon party.

We picked this location as a few of my friends were actually travelling for the year and needed to keep the costs down, I can't remember how much it was per night exactly but it was very cheap.

The hotel grounds are absolutely stunning and slap bang next to the beach.The pool area was always spotless and very very pretty. The staff we're lovely and the owner couldn't do enough for us, we often had a snack at the hotel and never had a complaint. The hotel rooms were kept immaculate, they are very basic but still very quaint.

The Island itself is very quiet unless you go in the few days around the time of the Full moon party, we only stayed for a few days to relax once we were partyed out :-)

If you're attanding the full moon party, this is the perfect place to stay, we had no trouble getting a taxi there and back.

I'd also recommend this hotel for people of all ages just wanting to relax (when the full moon party isn't on), although as this hotel isn't in the same area of Ko Phangan as the Full Moon it was lovely and peaceful.

Oh and if you're planning a night in, get some drinks and snacks from the hotel down the road, the hotel didn't stock a great deal, although whenever we asked for anything the lovely owner would rush to the shops and get it.

I can highly recommend the Fishermans restaurant down the road, the food was simply gorgeous and so so inexpensive, the setting is out of this world and the staff were great.

Shopping in Ko Phangan is a must, I picked up about 5 dresses for approx £5 - £8 each
