“Avoid this. Terrible! Worst experience ever”
Reviewed 14 April 2010

After living 5 years in Thailand we never had such a bad experience!

No shower and the water had funny smell abs color. Our ac was barely working. When we complained we've been told they will check in the morning.

At 1am tge electricity went off at 1am and the room was so hot we could not sleep. Not even emergency lights. Power was restored at 6am. We had sleepless night. In the morning nobody in the lobby.

Pool was sooo warm it felt like bathtub. Restaurant was like home kitchen with fast food thai food only.

This beach in not nice. Pick another location. In fact - go to anothet place on thailand. The whole islabd is full of rip-off places wuth no basic services. Eeach ride on pickup will cost you 100 to 150 thb. No deals to be found.

We have stayed in a couple of places in Ko Phangan and we liked this one the most.
It looks a bit concrete from the outside but once inside it is a little gem.
First the location;At the beach and a 5 minute walk to Thongsala, where there are some nice restaurants and pubs and a good nightmarket for some delicious food.
And Thai people. After spending some time in a resort on Had Salad and on Malibu beach in a tourist-only environment in a bay with only other resorts this was quite a relief. Thongsala is a good location to explore the rest of the island.
Then the resort; It opened about 3 months ago so everything is new. They have about 20 separate beach bungalows with air con, a fridge, an outside bathroom, and satellite tv. There was wifi and a internet terminal at the restaurant for free. We paid 800 baht a night so that was a bargain.
Pool was nice, you can have a good breakfast and the staff is very friendly. Would definitely recommend this place!

This is a bran new hotel with a soft openning for my visit (My trip was Dec 22-Jan 10). It was a small with minimal stylish decor but full options for comfort( air con, mini bar,cable tv and hot shower for standard plus many more facilities for other room types) The room is big with an open-air style bahtroom(seperate shower from toilet) Nice and clean touch with a not too quiet ambience yet not too busy for people who seek privacy. I was on my own so I look for some place with a sense of friendliness and security and that is it!! First I booked for 2 nights for a start but got too comfortable to leave so I stayed there till the end of my trip. Tasty food and nice restaurant right on the beach with an outdoor swimming pool a step aways from the beach which offering an ocean view.
