Chills Resort
Ranked #44 of 91 Hotels in Ko Pha Ngan
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Chills Resort is a family owned facility. Located on the Northwest side of Koh Phangan, which means you end up with gorgeous sunset every night. It is a small place and all the bungalows have an ocean view. The food is suburb, as the owner went to one of the most prestigious cooking schools in Thailand and takes pride in everything she cooks.

As a solo traveller it's important for me to feel welcomed and safe while traveling. Chills Resort is one of those places where you walk in and feel like you just stepped into a family or close friend's home. The owners are lovely people, and I wish I didn't have to leave.

Oh - they offer pick-up from the ferry. Which is about a 20 minute drive or taxi ride. The Taxis are these awesome blue trucks, they pile people in and throw the luggage on top. It cost about 200Baht (6.00$) for a ride in the trucks.

This place is total paradise. It is now under new management and they have renovated the bungalows and grounds so Chills is now exactly how you see on the photos. The food is superb and well priced. Kayaks to explore the reef (only 50 meters away). A little awkward to get to as its down a steep hill but you soon work out how to ride down it with brakes. They have decent mopeds/bikes for rent. Erik and Nidd (the new managers) speak very good English and are so helpful and friendly. You will never want to leave this place - ever. But if you are compelled to go to the FMP they will organise a taxi to take you there for £2 a head and arrange to pick you up again (although you do feel guilty for bringing him out in his pajamas). Top class gaff run by top class people.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and even the cheaper fan rooms are spotless and have seaview

Stayed there in december 2011, First of all Robert picked us up at pier in thongsala, very good service... he also helped us to rent a couple of scooters from his friend without any problems.
(although the scooter guy was a bit different) anyway.. Both Robert and his family was very helpful, and also invited us to the jam sessions at his bar.. the bungalows was not so clean inside, a couple of ants and some lizards... who cares?

the seawater pool was full of sand, but it didnt matter! This is the number one chill out place in koh phangan! just take it easy! :)

remember, its located far away from haad rin and thongsala, if you gonna stay here, you have to rent a Scooter!

Overall: definitve worth trying! :)

We booked a "deluxe" villa here for 3 nights in feb. all in all it was terrible. The sheets were stained, there was an ant infestation and a lizard in the room. When we complained we were told to "chill out". It's in a very isolated location and staff are not at all friendly.

We had a management change at Chills Resort at May 2013.
As we invested a lot to improve your holiday expirience we kindly invite you to have a look at our location next time. We are only isolated from the party life in the south which is a major advantage along all the west coast of the island.

My partner booked a 5 night stay in Chills resort for 24th Jan to 29th Jan through WebSawadee. We paid full amount by 10th of January and were promised that after we paid full amount our booking will be confirmed. We booked for a deluxe bungalow that was really upfront d beach as we saw the room was different from other resort that attracts us. However after a long journey from Bangkok that almost took more than 12 hours we reach Chills Resort and was told that they were fully booked. We didn't get it actually because our agent told us that it was a confirmed booking. After a tired journey i actually told my partner just to follow along n moved to Loyfa Natural Resort which Chills resort management actually booked for us. The room was much smaller and of course we were so angry with the agent that we decided to email them. To our suprise Chills Resort actually cater for their relatives and the reason is because their relative didn't want to move out n so we were suppose to put up somewhere. I don't think it's fair for us. They also promise to let us stay in their resort for the last 2 days but they kept silent and didn't bother to let us know of the outcome. So if you guys want to book a room with Chills Resort do call them up personally and asked if their relatives is there cause they cater more for their relatives. I will never recommend this resort to anyone due to their bad service and the way they solve it. However you can check out Loyfa Natural Resort!! They are 100 times better then Chills Resort. I hope the caucasian owner is reading this because he wasn't of any help either!

Room Tip: Try out their neighbour Loyfa Natural Resort.

The leaking pipe under the basin splashed out a lot of water on the legs and feet. Also the toilet tank was constantly noisy with its running water. Even if we told the Dutch owner, he didn´t do anyting about it. Just said "yeah, yeah, I will fix it" And nothing happened. Also the room was very hot so we needed to have the window open during the night. But there was no mosqito net so we got some bites. Finally it´s expensive for what you get on the rest of the island. Even the restaurant is overpriced.
