“good value, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

this is a nice, family run resort. it's not about luxury, but has a snug atmosphere, and own mr pimol offers just enough service to keep his guests happy. no less, no more. get your own drinks from the fridge, use the computer, borrow the snorkel gear: nothing is a problem. the bungalows are clean, little problems were fixed immediately. the fred-flintstone hut is quite original! there is no beach, but the haad salad beach is a 5 min walk. or the owner is happy to take you to his brother's resort at haad yao, which has a beach as wel as a cold swimming pool. lucky's swimming pool was not really cold.

I stayed at Lucky Resort because when I got off the boat in Koh Phangan a tout offered me a very good deal (300B/night with free transport there). I was excited to see the west coast as I had heard it was very peaceful and beautiful, but was disappointed that Lucky Resort did not have a beach. They have a nice pool but with no cushions on the hard wooden loungers. It is a very isolated location, not near anything else so is basically your only choice for food/drinks which are of course at hotel restaurant prices. The meal I had there was decent but service was lacking. I moved on the next day to Baan Tai beach which was closer to what I was looking for.

Landed on the pier from koh Tao and got handed a flyer for Lucky Resort and 300 baht rooms, wasn't expecting too much for the price but was pleasantly surprised! Had a wooden hut on the hill with a double bed and mozzie net with a fan. The resort is really peaceful and most of the time all you can hear is the sea. The resort has a really nice pool overlooking the vast gardens. It is tucked away so you will either need to get a bike or they run a taxi from the resort every day for 100baht.

I stayed in their lowest price hut but they had some pretty nice other accomodation there, pretty sure you will find something based on whatever budget you have :-)

First of all, I want to clarify that this place is in the north of the island and quite issolated. For us that was the point and what we wanted.
Most of the people come to Phangan for the Full Moon, Half Moon and all the daily parties around. It's a pitty if you loose the real island. Nice beaches and nice places to visit. For us the north was the best.

The place is AMAZING. Just in front of a small beach but not for swimming. Our bungalow had a balcony with sea views and we slept with the wonderful waves sound ;)
Also you can relax at the swimming pool watching the sea just in front of you.

Staff and people are really nice. Our advice is to rent a motorbike there (150 B) and ride over the island.

Food is also very good. Breakfasts are amazing.

They had 2 lovely dogs and they slept in our balcony ;)

For sure we'll come back!

+ friendly staff
+ comfortable rooms right near the water
+ good food at the restaurant
+ snorkel gear free to use

-a bit far from restaurants and bars, you will definitely need to know your way around a moped
- pool could use a cleaning

Very happy with our stay and would stay again

By mistake we happened to spend 1 night in January, 2012 in Lucky resort.
1. All what they show you on the picture is not true - you don t find sandy beach and nice surrounding.
2. The swimming pool is dirty, that is why they say as an advantage - you can use it at night - that is the only time when you don t see how dirty it is.
3. There are no window in bungalows and it is scary inside.
4. There is nothing around - closest village may be in 2 km
5. After we decided to leave the manager became very rude and offending. He was screaming on us. We were about to call the police. He refused to call us a taxi and said us to go to search on the highway, which is 15 min walking up hill.

Lucky resort almost ruined our holidays, hopefully we did not trust the manager, who said the rest of the island is very bad, and moved away.

This is a lovely place, by far the best I stayed in in Thailand. The fellow canvassed at the pier, and the resort lived up to everything he said. When you get there and realise it is quite a way from other shops and bars etc, I was worried prices might be hiked etc - they aren't , everything is very reasonable, and the food very good. When you get the lay of the land, you realise there is a nice deserted beach 100 metres along the coast, accessed by a bridge, and Hat Salad (amazing beach) and Hat Yao are about 15 minutes walk (though you have to be quite fit!!) The swimming pool (which I swam in at 1am) was lovely, and rarely more than three or four couples in it. It really filled up for the full moon party, and people who went did so in taxis.
There is a review on here about a green pool, dirty rooms and an owner who tried to stab them - this must be a pi** take - NOTHING could be further from the truth, they were so nice and helpful, there is NO way I could imagine them behaving like this in a milliuon years!!
