The Coast Resort - Koh Phangan
Ranked #7 of 91 Hotels in Ko Pha Ngan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 March 2013

I was hoping to relive my backpacking days on the island but my wife refused to countenance such an idea and duly booked Coast. I was hoping to pick faults with the hotel and there are some but it has me won over and i am glad my wife booked it.

The room we are in is well appointed, it could do with a few more places to charge phones, ipads etc and with a shelf above the sink, a few more hangers and shelves for clothes and if they actually built out a balcony on the first floor that might have been clever and if the metal key actually did what it says on the plastic key card; but i am splitting hairs. The beds are massive with what feels like egyptian cotton sheets and duvet cover. The mattress is stiff but the softest of all the places we have stayed in thus far. The bathroom is clean and simple. There are plenty of english channels on tv.

The fitness studio smells new and unused. The resistance machines are overcomplicated, but the cardio stuff seems decent with x trainer, bikes and treadmill, It is a shame they jump up the weight of the free weights so quickly (for my wife). Still best gym i saw on the island.

Food in the restaurant is very good, but about twice the price of what you pay in town and there are annoying flies, maybe needs some more fans. Some of the portions are small, so it was a shame there is no desert. Breakfast is excellent with fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt and decent coffee.

Next to the restaurant is the pool bar. This and the infinity pool are the feature pieces of the resort. We just had some fruit shakes which were the best we tasted on the trip. I should also say wifi is free and readily available and it has yet to drop as i have experienced a lot in Khao Tao. It says in the in room info that there are kayaks and snorkelling but i did not see any. The resort is facing the beach which has coarse sand and nice warm clear water.

The resort is a 10-15 min walk to haad rin, i might not fancy it too much at night but let's see. The staff are really eager to please and have a mix of english management and thai can do attitude which we havent always experienced on this trip.

In summary some minor faults that i am sure wll be improved with time, but it really stands head and shoulders above anyplace else i have seen here.

Mark and Christine

Room Tip: We are in a room in the 70s, there is no sea view and disappointingly no balcony.

Very happy to her the word "Perfect" again on Trip Advisor even if the main reasons were the sunset and the Thai girl smile but we're happy to provide this. And of course we're happy that the resort impressed you and that we met your expectations. Thanks again from all the Team here.

I absolutely loved it! The resort is really modern and stylish, I especially liked the pool with the bar inside (nobody makes cocktails better than James!). The beach is lovely, you can spend hours sitting there. Staff is really nice and helpful, with the general manager on top, who literally did everything he could for us. I will definitely come back to the Coast Resort!

Matylda our service was everything and nothing as its really what we love to do ! But the kind words of appreciation and support are equally appreciated in return. James is getting a growing reputation with reviews of his cocktails so we'll make sure to keep him happy here with us for when you come back to The Coast Resort.
See you soon, Adam, James and everyone-else here

We had a very pleasant stay at The Coast Koh Phangan on in February. The resort is stylish and has a beautiful hill-like landscape with lots of trees which I personally like. Although it was just opened for less than 2 months but everything, i.e. cleanliness, services, food & drink, is perfect.

The room we stayed is facing the beach and has a jacuzzi at the balcony. It's clean, spacious and has all amenities we expect for a 4-star hotel (that's what we feel it is.) We also enjoy the sunset view from our room. We did not use the pool but it looks nice and is colorful at night! The dinner is great! We had delicious port ribs and beef burgers which are at a sizable portion and value for money. Breakfast is also very good.

In all, we feel great to spend a wonderful vacation here and will definitely stay here again next time we visit Koh Phangan.

Dear Oley although we have only been open for a few months we have tried to provide a perfect service since the day we opened our doors and its great to hear that some of our Guests such as yourself think we've achieved this already and that you feel we're performing above our star rating.
See you next time you visit our island.

We stayed at The Coast Resort for 3 nights in February 2013. After a fun ride to the hotel from the ferry we were welcome by the friendly staff. The hotel has a very clean design concept which was very appealing to us. We had the superior room and found it to be very clean and comfortable. By far the best part about this place is the pool and the bar in the pool. Best part of the day was having a cocktail and the wonderfully lit pool enjoying the sunset. You should not miss it. We also really enjoyed the fitness room.

If you're looking for a cool and relaxing place which is still within comfortable walking distance of all the action of Haad Rin (Location of the Full Moon Party) this is the right place for you.

Room Tip: If you like to sit outside and enjoy the weather go for the Deluxe Room which come with a terrace.

Dear Sven we're happy to hear that you received a warm welcome from us after a 'fun ride' from the ferry and hope that we kept this up throughout your stay. Thanks for informing future guests not to miss the sunset from the pool especially enjoying them with a cocktail in-hand; we couldn't agree more. We're happy that you agree with us that our location is just the right place; walking distance from the towns night-life but distance enough that you can't hear it so that if you wish you can relax of an evening with the feeling that there's nothing around for miles to disturb your peace.
Hope to see you again and provide you with the same appealing experience !
Adam and the Team

But with such feedback like yours we will make it our target. We try everyday to perfect our service and the motivation provided by your ringing endorsement is very much appreciated.

This resort made an instant impression on my girlfriend and I and continued to impress during our whole stay. The pool was awesome and the staff were extremely helpull.
We like to relax but also enjoy making the most of the nightlife. This resort is located in a perfect location. It is a short walk to the beach parties but still on the side of the island with what I believe has the much nicer beach.
Give this pretty much brand new resort a go and I don't think you will be dissapointed.

Dear Kyle thanks for returning the favour and being so helpful to us with this positive review. We hope that you and Georgia return so that we can thank you in person and try to impress you even more. It's great to see that yourself and one or two other reviewers have enjoyed the location of the resort; being able to get out and about for the town's night-life with ease and at walking distance whilst enjoying the peace relaxation and views that our spot on the sunset beach provides. We're happy we did not disappoint.
Take care
