We booked Lime n Soda for our stay on Ko Phangan. The hotel came and picked us up from the pier for free which was very nice. Once we arrived to the hotel we were able to check in early another great aspect for us. We booked a standard room with a fan. The first room they put us in was fine but shortly after being in the room the electricity would not work. We waited outside while they tried to fix it but no luck. We were moved into another bungalow type room. This room in my opinion wasn’t as nice as the other but at least the fan worked. The previous room also had a mosquito net for the bed so we asked if we could take it from the room and put it in our new room because there was not one inside. The hotel staff agreed so we were fine.
We ate lunch at the hotel and the next morning ate breakfast but after glancing over the prices and walking to town we found better options that were much cheaper. The food was good at the hotel but a little pricey for us. If you get a chance go to the Street Market it is located down from Tesco and you can get some really good deals on food. 40 THB for Chicken Pad Thai that tasted amazing! You can’t beat that price! Also, there was a Walking Street Market on Saturday closer to the hotel located in town. This is really fun to experience so I recommend going if you are there on a Saturday.
You really do not need to rent a bike if you are only exploring the town nearest to the hotel. However, we decided to explore more of Ko Phangan and rented a bike. We checked with the hotel since they offer bike rentals but they required to hold passport and if you didn’t want them to take your passport it was a 15,000 THB deposit (YIKES). We did some research and found this place called Kate Rentals located in town. We walked to this place from the hotel and found we could leave a drivers license and only a 5,000 THB deposit. You can’t beat that! We took pictures of the bike to be on the safe side but honestly, these guys don’t seem the kind to cheat you over small scratches. When it came to return our bike no problem they glanced over the bike and returned everything. I would recommend renting from this company!
The pool at Lime n Soda was nice however, the beach was not so nice. We maybe went there once but never actually got in the water and there wasn’t much sand. Better to stick with the pool and rent a bike to travel to some of the other beaches on the island. Overall, it was a nice time at Lime n Soda. Fan rooms are ok they do get a bit sticky but there isn’t much to do if you choose a fan room.
