Haad Yao Over Bay Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2012

I stayed here for a night in march 2012 in a lovely air on room with a big balcony high up in the hills! We paid 700baht for the night and was just 2 days before fullmoon! The resort is verrrrry steep but well worth it!!! It has a lovely pool with great views and has a really cute restaurant with low tables and thai syle cushion seating!!! Had 2 meals here, fried rice with fried egg on top which was Yummy, and a vegetable red curry which was extremely spicy! I love spicy food and have loved a lot of Thai curries but I couldn't handle this one!!! My cousin had a green curry and was really spicy too but he enjoyed his!!!
Haad Yao beach is STUNNING and only 2 mins walk!!! We checked a lot of places on the beach front and were all 1200 -1500 for the same standard of room!!!
I wouldn't recommend children staying here as the paths are steep, also wouldn't be ideal if you want to party as taxi fare is 200baht per person one way to haad rin!!
Perfect for a quiet chilled out time in koh phangan!! :-)

Stayed here around the Full Moon Party. Was a great little spot, bit far out if you want to keep partying around where the Full Moon Party area is but didn't really bother us as we just wanted to chill out after it. The area where the restaurant and reception is great for just relaxing. Pool was clean and had great views. Our room slept 3 adults, was cosy but adequate. The views from the room were amazing! Bathroom was average and was quite smelly. Rooms were not cleaned by staff through out the duration of our stay. Only negative would be that the grounds are extremely hilly and since our room was quite high it felt like we had to climb up a cliff every time we wanted to come and go from the hotel or get something to eat. Also I think the label 'resort' is a little misleading, but if you come expecting a bungalow/guesthouse type accommodation your more likely to be satisfied.
With that said I would defiantly consider staying here again.

I stayed at this hotel from Feb 6th till the 10 th 2012 , from the start the attitude of the staff was terrible , not welcoming at all ! it was like they were paying me to stay their . The view was nice but that was the only thing, our bathroom was dirty and had not been cleaned before we went in . when i asked to be cleaned she was not very happy . We had to ask three times for it to be cleaned and it still never happened . If we had not paided up front i would have left straight away . The location is not to bad but up a very steep hill and pool looked like it had'nt been clean in a while . All together do not stop here , can get much better and cheaper hotels down the road .

Room Tip: Do not stay in this hotel

Looks like this place has had some mixed reviews in the past, but we thought this place was great. New Dutch/Thai staff/owners are super friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed four nights straddling the full moon party.

I found the staff here to be absolute sweethearts. Sure, there was the odd lost-in-translation moment when a restaurant order might have gotten messed up; but not being picky consumers, we just went with it. Management is forgiving. We broke our deck hammock, and when told about it, management said they would send a boy straight away. Sure enough, when we came back from supper, there was a new hammock. To think we were afraid of telling them for fear of being charged for it!

We were picked up from the pier with a welcome and dropped back off when we left the island. The lady even hugged me farewell! What a sweetheart.

We spent three weeks hopping around the country and this bungalow-style room was the best value for the dollar (around $40 CAD a night). Our AC unit was new and exquisite; and when we first got there, I joked about our “champagne tastes” whilst in Thailand. Slept like a babe in the comfy bed, though it would have been nicer if the sheets provided as blankets would have been a little larger.

An “A” for the pool, an “A+” for the view from our room!

Be careful walking around the top of the grounds though -- the hills are very steep! Sandals can be a little risky if wet; and I cannot imagine how a wheelchair would navigate to the top. Perhaps there were wheelchair-accessible options lower down the hill ...

Me and my girlfriend stayed in the overbay resort for two nights we found the staff to be rude and unwelcoming. The room wasnt the best either, full of roaches and other bugs, the mini fridge in the room was moulding inside.i would advise people to stay clear of this resort unless you like getting ripped off....

Over Bay is a beautiful getaway overseeing Haad Yao (Long Beach) on Koh Phangan

With great food and friendly personable staff I found this the perfect place to experience views of the beach, within close proximity to other local night spots.

The pool is the perfect setting to enjoy the quieter days and get to know your neighbours and the bungalows a peaceful retreat from everything. Then when it comes time to venture out in search of island life or to bathe in the full moon, the new staff were more than knowledgeable.

It was the perfect beginning to my first Thailand trip. Highly recommended if your in that neck of the woods!
