“A great hotel on the beach in a great village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

Pros : Great situation on the beach and the village is the most beautiful place of the island with nice restaurants and little shops, it is especially animated in the evening. The service is very good and the staff here is amazing and helpfull. the hotel is as good for lovers as for family (lot of children and babies but not bothering at all). They also have a restaurant and a bar with various meals on the beach with animations, firework... We spend 5 beautiful days resting and enjoying the place.

Cons : I was disappointed by the spa, girls barely speak english except one. My massage was not very good and near the beach so I could hear the sea as much as people around. the village is quite far from main towns, spots and from the pier so it's expensive to moove around and come back by taxi, especially as the road to reach the hotel is on work so it's hard to rent a bike to move (but not impossible).However we didn't regret to stay here because this place was great! We booked a tour with the hotel to visit the island but we were upset because it didn't worth what we payed for (3500bath for a dry waterfall, a crapy chinese temple, a fishermans village with no animations, and a beach overcrowded), it just confort us in the idea that we choose a good location! The breakfast could be improved. The decoration in the room is quite basic and the room was dark but it stays confortable and very clean.The swimming pool is useless because small and without a view on the sea but we didn't use it as we had the beach and the sea at few steps. What was really bothering is the lack of place on private long chair at disposal on the beach when the hotel is full. At 9:30am there is no long chair available because people leave their towels on it to keep it clear... But in spite of these points we recommand this hotel!

Room Tip: we had a deluxe room but they have room given on the beach with private long chair, a terrace and I...

I can give the highest recommendation for this resort. The location is fabulous the accommodation truly excellent and the customer service outstanding. The experience starts with the speed boat from the hotel facility on Koh Samui which takes about 45 mins. Every aspect after that was superb.
We stopped off in the Koh Samui sister facility before our flight back to Bangkok. The experience was just as good and we were treated expectations lily well.

Room Tip: Get a beach front room if possible.

Right on the beach and in a great area of Koh Phangan, Thong Nai Pan Noi. The resort was great, the room very comfortable and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely with one of the best showers and best beds in any hotel, and great decor! The gym is tiny with very limited equipment but offers a nice view. The restaurant had great food and a great view but the service was a tad slow....had to flag someone down every time we wanted to order or to order more drinks. But town is just steps away and there are all sorts of great restaurants and bars to chose from. Also more great options and an even nicer beach are at Thong Nai Pan Yai. Overall, a great hotel and one of the nicest areas in the island....very secluded and should be kept adults only...this area is perfect for couples. Will definitely return.

This is my second visit to Koh Phangan and to Buri Rasa. My husband and I took the semi private boat from Samui. It was amazing! They dropped us off right at the hotel on the beach. The water was calm so they were able to do it. Huge plus. We are in a beach front villa which I highly recommend. Beside the killer view and proximity, you get reserved lounge chairs on the beach. The beach is gorgeous, clean and warm. The breakfast is really good. Lunch too and you can order from your beach chair. The rooms are basic but nice and clean. There are lots of families with kids here but also couples and singles. A good mix. The location is great. There is a cobblestone street and a village feel here. Every restaurant on the street we have tried is wonderful. I love this island and this hotel. Totally recommend.

Room Tip: Beach front villa.

After reading the reviews I had high expectations for Buri Rasa - and they were met above and beyond!!

The grounds are beautiful and meticulous. The staff couldn't be nicer and more friendly. We had a room facing the street and it was just fine. We got a super rate through hotels.com. They offered us an upgrade for an additional 2700 baht a night but when we saw the rooms facing the beach we were content to stick with our room.

Yes the pool is small but adequate for a refreshing dip. The beach is gorgeous if a bit rough. There always were ample lounges available.

The town has lots of options to eat at but quite frankly the food at the restaurant was top notch and not terribly expensive. ( though the bbq was not as good as the ala carte...) and worth paying a bit more for the ambience and cleanliness. Happy hour every day at 18-19 drinks 120 baht each. Even the minibar prices were less than what you'd pay at a convenience store. I was sick a few of the days and there's a pharmacy there that had medicine for nearly any ailment you could imagine!

Breakfast was divine and very consistent with enough changes a day to give it some variety. The wait staff took great care of us and our baby daughter making sure she had a highchair and baby utensils. Everyone knew her by name and spent time making her smile :)

Banana is as lovely as they say! We took the speedboat both ways since traveling with a baby and even though it couldn't make it straight to the hotel and there was a car ride it was fast and pleasant.

All in all we were sad to leave after our week there and look forward to coming back. Thanks Buri Rasa!!

We Stayed at the Buri Rasa Resort, Koh Phangan in early January. Our room was on the first floor facing the ocean. The views from our room were amazing and the room itself was extremely clean and comfortable. The Resort itself offered a great place to relax. The little village just off the Resort was an absolutely beautiful place to visit. The people are extremely friendly and there is so much you can do or you can choose to do nothing at all except relax and take advantage of the great Thai massage available. The staff at the resort were exceptionally helpful and attentive. Their attention to detail was wonderful and they truly ensured your stay at the resort was comfortable.

Room Tip: The staff are truly at your service and are extremely friendly, whatever we asked for was organised...
