I'm a travel agent and I booked a big Thailand trip in January. I organised most hotels through our wholesaler, but had trouble finding accommodation in Koh Phangan as we were booking late and over the Full Moon Party. I went onto TripAdvisor and found the Chantaramas. It had great reviews and looked like it was close to Haad Rin beach without actually being in Haad Rin. I was a little skeptical as it wasn't one of our preferred properties but we booked it online anyway.
When we got to Koh Phangan and pulled up to the Chantaramas we were flabbergasted! It was absolutely stunning, with tall tropical trees, lush vegetation and a great reception. After tasting our delicious welcome drinks and cooling down with their cooled towels we were graciously shown to our room. The room was large, clean and modern with a nice big bed. We booked a room with a Jacuzzi on the balcony and we got exactly what we paid for. The Jacuzzi was AMAZING! It was like a bath so you could put hot or cold water in it. The food was delicious and cheap, and the pool, OMG, the pool. It was an infinity pool right on the beach. Stunning! It was also in a perfect location, only a 10 minute TukTuk ride to the Full Moon Party.
I really don't understand why we don't contract this property when it was the best place we stayed at in Thailand but I'll be getting to the bottom of it asap! The only downside was when we went to book on their website, the price of their room went up by a couple of hundred dollars without letting us confirm the currency change... was a bit weird... either way it was well worth what we paid for it anyway. Would recommend to anyone, especially couples or friends.
