We booked this place with intentions of just staying a few nights over the full moon party. Yes it is basic, but for the kind of people who go to the full moon party it's perfect. The fan rooms are quite warm at night, but keep a bottle of water handy and it's really not that bad. The food was great, we ate breakfast here most days and always sat down in the lobby for a drink with the guy that runs it, he's a good laugh. The location is perfect! It's right on Haad Rin beach, but just set into the trees enough so there's no pissed stragglers wondering around the bungalows, and the view from out room was incredible. If you're looking for quality accommodation look elsewhere, but for backpackers looking to stay over a party weekend, it's perfect! Will be back soon for sure!

We booked in to stay with them 3 months in advance before new years, when we got there they had given our rooms away as they said they had not received the money from the booking agent. We spent half a day trying to sort things out to no avail. The booking agent showed us that they sent them the money but they still refuse to refund us even though we had to settle for a hostel as an overpriced rate since it was 2 days before new years.
BE VERY CAREFUL when booking with venus as we were told when we were there that they have done the same thing before.

Its been almost 5 months and we still have no got our money back and are now in the red for the amount.

We stayed at the Venus Resort for 5 nights and it was quite nice. Although the Resort is hard to find it is set on a hill and away from all the tourists. The only negative thing is that you really hear every single music box from the beach because you are on the hillside!!! So sleeping can become hard...
Although if you like to party all night and all day the Venus Resort is a nice place to relax.
The Bungalows are very nice and clean and the view over the ocean is great.
If you rent a bike it can be a little hard to get there with your bike because it is a really bad gravel road leading up the hill. Just try out how to get there.
As we stayed there for the Fullmoon party, which we really don't recommend, we had to book in advance for 5 nights. But I think in Haad Rin this is everywhere the same.
Another negative thing is that they do not offer free WiFi or Internet. The have a computer for which you can pay for to get online.

So the Venus Resort is a nice place to stay not in the middle of the Haad Rin event. But if you don't want to go to the Fullmoon party we would really recommend some other beaches at Koh Phangan, maybe even those which can just be reached via boat...

And don't forget: keep Haad Rin clean and don't forget all ecological rules while partiing!!!
