“Excellent!”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Me and a friend stayed here whilst travelling over thailand on a 2 week trip. when we got to the resort we were both a bit apprehensive as it is very basic. but in fact just what we needed and for the price we paid, couldnt complain!
it is a 10min journey into haad rin where the full moon party was held but only cost 100baht (about £2) sometimes less into town if you bartered with the driver!!
Pong and his staff were so welcoming, and they really made you feel like part of the family. with a great selection of food from all corners of the earth, they were always happy to cook you up whatever you wanted anytime of the day.
On our last day in koh phangan, Pong the owner even gave us a lift to the ferry port!
All in all very basic accomodation.. but didnt spend too long in the room as the beach was literally on our doorstep... most days we were the only people on the beach! heaven!!!
would highly reccomend for a peaceful getaway!!

Room Tip: Would suggest an aircon room as it is very hot with a fan room!

if you have a walk around the beach you can see how well chosen this spot is. its right next to a resort that costs almost 10 times as much. Pong is a great guy who really treats his guests well. i was here for full moon and i think since it is a bit smaller maybe it is better for a group of friends, but he even offered us a ride to the parties in his truck and the food was delicious! best mexican food on the island! lol

Great family run operation. Bungalows are comfortable and all have a nice front porch to relax on.
Food is prepared by experienced staff.

i highly recommend the FISH CURRY, it's a special dish of Southern Thailand. You are in for an experience in eating.

The owner, Pong, family and staff were really helpful and friendly and always had time for us. Fantastic location right by the beach, lots of great palm trees swaying. Idyllic place, not really crowded beaches, although Hat Rin - Full Moon party beach is only a 10 minute taxi ride away, or you can even walk along the beach when the tide is low - which we did and it took about 40 minutes. This was the best place we stayed on Koh Pha-Ngan. Excellent restaurant. Very reasonable prices. It was an easy taxi ride from the port to get here as well. Will stay here again.

We visited Koh Phangan for the full moon party and didn't want to stay in Haad Rin. The location of blue lotus was perfect for us. The beach was lovely and it was easy to get into Haad Rin each night. The beach was quiet and there was no hassle, unlike some other islands. The staff wete friendly and gave good advice, even a lift tp the full moon party. Pong also gave us a lift to the port when we left which was greatly appreciated. I would happily stay here again if I returned to the island.

I stayed at blue lotus for five nights over the full moon party. We were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. The bungalow we had was a sea facing bungalow which wasn't right on the beach but pretty much was. The staff here are lovely and the food is really good. It's a little bit out for the full moon but you literally walk up to the road and a taxi is 100 baht pp each way. You are away from shops but can walk in 20-30 mins. Overall a really lovely place and the view from the restaurant is beautiful. Very relaxing.

If you are looking for a cheap but beautiful accomodation combined with a peaceful surrounding, this would be the perfect location for your stay.
The Blue Lotus Resort, owned by Pong, is located directly at the beach, whereas the bungalows are build in two rows within a nice garden.
The food is delicious and the service very kind.
All over, we had three perfect days and nights at the Blue Lotus Resort and will come back soon.
