The Relax Beach Resrot
Ranked #86 of 91 Hotels in Ko Pha Ngan
Reviewed 3 February 2013

I went backpacking with my best friend and we booked this room at a travel agents in Bangkok to guarantee we had somewhere to stay on Phangan for Full Moon Party. We were not shown any pictures and told it would be a shared dorm. It was a fantastic surprise that it turned out to be a luxury mini-villa with spectacular views and a lovely beach footsteps away. It was nice to come back to a more tranquil and peaceful resort after the partying at Haad Rin Beach. It was a little bit more pricey than we had been paying anywhere else but was lovely and worth the money. It had a nice food area, (expensive) internet access, a good sized swimming pool and friendly staff. Our room had a TV which was a nice bonus and a lovely ensuite. The only downfall was that it was a little too far from the Full Moon Party atmosphere and was more of a couples retreat.

It was also the only place we stayed in (some of which were no way near as luxurious as this) with cockroaches!! It made sleeping a little uneasy as we lost track of chasing them round the bed! Though as a whole it was very clean and didn't put us off too much!

These guys really need to shape up - load of employees who are doign nothing. They sit next to Relax beach resort who are cheaper, have a great restuarant and offer a great service. Power beach offer none of these and should really up their game. I only stayed there as everywhere else was full.

The rooms were nice... but too far away from the full moon party.

The beach was beautiful but I kept getting wiffs of poop... We rented a scooter and hung out at Haad Rin beach which was much nicer and the place around Haad rin looked better too.

Stay closer to the party!

So myself and 2 friends booked online to stay here. The price seemed high but then, it was peak season so we thought it would be like that across the island.
The room (power bio bungalow) was gross. It was dark, damp and dirty. The bathroom, if you could call it that, had mould and a shower that barely worked. In fact, the shower broke when we were there and we could not turn it off. It took them two days to fix this! So we had a constant running shower for two days. I won't even go in to the amount of bugs in the bathroom. Or even the resort in general- the mosquitoes devour you at night and the flies pester you all day. I know this is Thailand but having travelled south east Asia for the last 3 months I have never experienced mosquito or flies like this. I think there is an infestation.
Breakfast, which was included, was also disgusting, covered in flies and I stayed away despite it being included in our room rate.
Anyway, after the disaster that was booking this place in the first instance, we found out from some other people who just turned up at the resort that their (same room as ours) rate was two thirds the price we paid! I mean 2000baht a night cheaper, not just a small amount. When we challenged this with the resort, the man got aggressive at us and told us it was the website's commission we booked through. 200% commission? Yeah right! It was a total scam by the resort and handled so badly.
Oh, and the beach is not kept clean, the sand is horrible. There are resorts next door to this one which I wished we had stayed in instead.
Just stay away, there are better deals on the island. Ignore the free transfer they offer at the pier to get you in. Horrible place, horrible people.

Power Beach Resort is located on the beach a short walk off the main road in Baan tai. The cottages are basic & few cottages face the sea. Has a decent sized restaurant & a small bar facing the beach. Pool/pool table,internet is available. u can book bikes or a boat trip around the island from here. to get to haad rind just walk to the main road & wait for the taxis which run by every few minutes. Getting back from Full moon party at any time of the night is no issue as taxis are available.

The staff are outstanding and bend over backwards to ensure that all guests enjoy their stay, there is ample opportunity to meet fellow full moon party goers in the communal areas as they have 3 pool tables and at least 12 tables with an on-site restaurant not to mention the 2 swimming pools, on-site bar and beach access.
The rooms themselves are basic but that perfectly suits the nature of Koh Pengang and there is on-site motorcycle hiring.

Overall, I'd recommend Power Beach to travelers who seek cheap, cheerful and fun accommodation that will give them a story to tell their friends.

So I ended up here for the Half Moon party in November. As far as that side of things it was perfect. Big area for socializing and they sorted us out for a taxi to and from the event.

Howrver the place itself had no charm, nothing special and some pretty basic rooms. I had to stay an extra night and was pretty over it by the end.

It wasn't that they did anything wrong, the millions of staff were nice and friendly. It was just a bit placid and soulless, but for 400BHT you can't really complain!

I ate at the restaurant next door every meal and the food there was amazing, definitely recommend!
