Haad Yao beach is on the west of Koh Phangan meaning you get some stunning sunsets. The beach is a nice size and the sand white and 'au naturalle' i.e. has rocks and drift wood etc which washes in. Unfortunately the sea here is not for swimming... It's protected by a reef meaning its really shallow and there are loads of rocks and urchins just offshore. If you walk (with shoes) through this though you get to deep water which is great for a swim and snorkel.
The beach is majorly quiet and if you visit when the full moon party isn't on there is barely anyone else n the beach. It's lined with bars and restaurants all serving up quality fayre at good prices.
The hotel itself is a little corker... For around 1000 baht a night (maybe a tad overpriced) you get a lovely spacious and tastefully, yet minimally decorated room with huge and majorly comfortable beds and quality aircon and strong wifi connection. The pool here more than makes up for the shallow sea. I'd definitely recommend this place for some serious R&R. Oh, and there's a 7/11 right next door in case you need your sliced hotdog 'fix'!
