When I arrived at Haad Rin Pier there was a fellow waiting to pick someone else up and take them to Sea Breeze Resort. He gave me a brochure and I accepted the offer of a short ride up the hill to check out the resort. I’m really glad I did, as this place is a secluded gem! I had my own idyllic bungalow with a deck and a hammock overlooking the beautiful jungle vegetation. While nothing fancy, it was pleasantly peaceful and relaxing, and suited me perfectly. I didn’t check out the accommodation in the lodge itself, which is likely higher end and offers views over the Gulf of Thailand. This property is a convenient walk midway between Haad Rin Beach and the small group of tourist businesses where the boat docks. I really enjoyed the spectacular swimming pool that overlooks the ocean, which was very quiet, as it was between Full Moon parties. This isn’t the sort of property that most Full Moon partiers would seek though. It’s more of a place to get away from it all. I enjoyed several meals in the open air dining area, and the food was consistently excellent and great value, and the friendly service provided by Thai youth was charming. As others have stated, this appears to be a family run business. I left with a very good impression of the place, and did not encounter any of the issues that other recent reviewers did. Incidentally, I was disappointed that most tourist resorts in Thailand I visited were overcrowded and not so authentic. I definitely preferred smaller scale and slower-paced Koh Phangan, and the bohemian atmosphere and beach at Haad Rin exceeded my expectations.

We arrived - a little bit alarmed by the steep hiil the taxi struggled to get up.
Got to the top - first point the photos are old, this place looks run down in real life and the pool area does not look clean - no way i was going to go in the pool, sunbeds falling apart etc.
Went to the room - no safe, no fridge, not one plug socket, bathroom falling apart - went straight to reception and said I am not happy for the money I have paid (we were in Thailand for 4 weeks, stayed in 10 hotels) she said basically up to you cancel but no refund - we argued until we got a upgraded room but it cost us another 500 bht a night.
Luckily we were only in Koh Phangnan for 2 nights as we travelled down the islands - thank god, the hotel was bad but not as bad as the resort centre - what an absolute dump, Nothing but neon vest shops - funnily enough hardly any actual drinking bars which surprised us and poor restaurants - probably the usual clientele are too drugged up or drunk on buckets to care - WE WILL NOT BE BACK!
Only one saving grace was that the beach was actually ok but saw one person get rescued due to strong under currents so beware.

Do not stay here. Upon arriving to this hotel my friend and I walked for about two hours trying to find this place. Once we got there and checked in and got to the room we found we had ants all over the room. They were coming in by the bathroom window that had rotted out. I asked them to fix it and they did with some chalking to fill the holes. The bathroom is a toilet and a shower and a sink. That's it. No shower curtain. Nothing. No soap was provided either. No hot water just luke warm Being that we were two girls there was no hair drier either in the room which is pretty essential. We asked for one and were told there were none to be had. Breakfast was gross. Cold French toast and bacon. There was paint on one of the bed from the full moon party. I was so disgusted with this place I decided to go back to ko samui for four of the six nights I was supposed to stay. The only thing about this place that is good is the staff. There isn't enough of them but they do he best with what they have. Don't stay here. It's a hole in the wall.

Thank you for your review Colette! In the meanwhile we have renovated and refurnished all our rooms. As we are located on a subtropical island surrounded by lots of nature, we occassionally have wildlife visitors. We are trying our best to keep our rooms clean and free of animals. We hope you enjoyed your stay on Koh Phangan anyways!

This experience felt like a fraud.
We have booked this hotel for the required minimum stay of 5 nights (Full Moon period) and we wanted to leave this hotel 10 seconds after we for there.
Of course the answer we got trying to cancel the booking is "No refund".

The hotel is on a hill top, and it's not that easy to climb there.
The rooms are dirty, the sheets are full of ink signs and the window at the balcony isn't 100% closed, resulting in a terrible noise when ever there is wind.
There are ants everywhere, you go to sleep and they are climbing you.
The shower/toilet are absolutely disgusting (You can see the photos).

After 1 night at the hotel, we have met 4 more couples at the lobby wanted to leave (The answer they all got was "No refunds").
When people reported spiders and ants at the rooms, they got an answer "Don't be a baby, it's a little spider".
We just couldn't stay there any more and left this hotel ( we have booked another hotel, for the same price, but 10000 times better).

Bottom line, DON'T GO THERE.

Thank you for your feedback! Considering that we are located on an subtropical island surrounded by nature we are challenged with wildlifes visitors once in a while. We are trying our very best to keep the rooms clean and the animals out. In case some spiders or insects appear in the rooms we are taking action instantly to guarantee you a comfortable stay. The 5 days around Full Moon are the busiest of the month, thats why we are not able to accept cancellations on arrival. We hope you enjoyed your stay on Koh Phangan overall.

Me and my friends have stayed here twice and would again if we ever go back. We loved the place, it has an amazing pool, views and even though it is the other side of the island from where the full moon is it is only a fifteen min walk to that beach and is nice to be able to get away from that busy beach to the other side to have some quiet.

The food and drinks were excellent and the rooms are lovely and very clean. Defo recommend to any of my friends.

stayed here in May for 2 nights, very nice staff, wonderfull views, away from all the noise but still only a few meters away from Haad Rin. We had a standard hotel room, which was very nice, and had a nice looking bathroom, something you usually don't expect in Thailand :-)
