“Very nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

The beach village is such a nice place to go. The pool and beach are very nice at day and the chill out and restaurant are good in the evening. They also pick you up at the pier and can arrange a tuktuk anywhere you want. We slept in the dorm with 12 people, very cosy. And the beds are soft! But the bungalows looks also nice.

stayed here for a night before the full moon week, but came back very night after we had moved to different prebooked accomodation to hang out. again all the staff were amazing and super helpful. the pool area is fantastic with the huge new bar and the management did a good job to keep people entertained before parties w dj's by the pool etc. i didnt get a chance to go to the Ku Club but hear its a good night. rooms are good i just stayed in a dorm airconditioned, clean and comfortable.

Not sure how to begin.
we stayed here for September full moon island was not as busy as usual (so im told) but this didnt stop the management from putting on the most action packed fun 5 days we have ever experienced!
Jungle warm up pool party,
Full moon party warm up party;
Full moon recovery chilled music all day,
Studio 54 at the Ku club a disco boogie night which was nothing less than brilliant
Accommodation was good we stayed in a 6 bed garden dorm that was really nice and shared with two very funny german guy's.
The food at the restaurant was very good and was reasonably priced.
swimming pool amazing.
Staff friendly and helpful and the management are very cool they seem to enjoy partying as much as we do.
over all i would highly recommend the Beach Village if you are going to Koh Phangang

Room Tip: if you want peace and quiet book room away from pool music playing all day

we intended staying at the Beach Village for 5 nights Koh Tao 4 nights and 4 nights Koh Samui but instead we stayed here for 10 night.
we only left because the owner insisted we moved on to see more of Thailand (Peter who is like your second Dad while you stay there).
made some amazing new friends for life from all around the world
this place is just an awesome social hub run by young enthusiastic people.
the pool and parties around it are just so good, great music from some very talented dj's
7 of us stayed in a beachfront dorm that is next to the swimming pool as well.
nothing was too much trouble for the staff and management.
we are not the type of people that would normally write reviews but these guy's deserve a shout and our thanks.
Thanks for looking after us and the life long memories you helped create and we are already planning our return visit on the way back from Oz.
Peace and Love

Room Tip: dont challenge Jack to a drinking contest

Stayed here over the full moon period, amazing vibe. Had pool parties on site as well and the menu in the restaurant was fantastic and very affordable. Had an absolutely brilliant time all the staff are really friendly and helpful. Accomodation was great and very clean. Would highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning in the future.

Excellent location right on the beach. We stayed in a bungalow right by the pool and our toes were in the sea within 30 seconds.
The owner Jack is a really nice helpful guy nothing too much trouble.
Really nice chilled out bar.
Aircon was fantastic. Great HOT shower!!
Good choice of food on menu.

Arrived in Koh Phangan for black moon party Sept 4th. It was getting late after a long day travelling from phi phi and we were relieved to hear a familiar London accent when booking in. We got a double room when arriving but the owner soon changed it to a twin for us and we got a bungalow close to the great pool and beach!! Eating at the bar wasn't our thing as I'm gluten free and no carbs but many a backpacker would welcome the choice of pizza, Thai, pasta and breakfasts. We came in quiet season so place wasn't jumping but you can't hold that against the owners. We hired a moped from another agent not realising the site have them and as luck would have it we couldn't get ours started, one of the owners happily took a look at it for us though it wasn't their own bike. All staff friendly and happy to help. Funny freindly dogs running around the place and one slept on our balcony every night. Checking out we lost our deposit slip but no problem we still got our money back no questions. To top off a great stay the son (who is pretty cute by the way!!) gave us a taxi to the pier in their own veichle as no taxi around. Great place to stay, great staff, and location is 5minutes from the town and pier. Thanks guys we will be back when we return.

Our multilingual reception staff are always willing to help, and can assist in booking tours, excursions and onwards travel. Please note this is not a quiet place to be during Full Moon!
