“Return trip”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

After 3 days here last year we loved it so much we came back for 10 days. Because of the full moon party, we deliberately chose to stay after the full moon party, not realising that the party date had changed, so we opnly missed it by one night. We booked a beachfront cabin, but only lasted 5 days because the consistent dance beat between sunset and sunrise (actually from lunchtime to sunrise) was torment. The management was fabulous and offered us ear plugs, but the beat and bass was so loud it was like it was coming through the floor. So we moved back from the beach, to a beautiful, much bigger suite, and although the room and setting were beautiful, it did not stop the beat. We also enjoyed the food here very much, and much as we kept on promising to try different restaurants, we kept on coming back to the Palita Lodge to eat because the food is fabulous.We have enjoyed staying here very much, and would love to come back but the lack of quality sleep is the only thing that stops us. If only there was some regulation with the noise, perhaps stop at 2am instead of all night.

Room Tip: As nice as the beach view is, it is much quieter in the Garden View rooms, and the suites are superb...

Great place at Haad Rin Nok (Sunrise Beach) and their location is great with pool and beach front. The staff are very friendly. Stayed here off the Full mon season, so was very quiet and relaxing.

I stayed here in mid-January 2012 and it was great. The bungalows on the beach are fantastic and each have there own balcony/verandah overlooking the beach. The breakfasts are absolutely beautiful and I ate at the restaurant for lunch one day and it was similarly excellent. Would receommend if you are visiting Hadd Rin however I imagine it would be extremely loud during a full moon party.

Room Tip: Beach bungalow rooms are great and each have a private balcony overlooking the beach.

I was planning on staying three nights and ended up staying for two weeks. I loved it here! The staff at Palita lodge are lovely, the food is great and the bungalows are very nice. An oasis of peace and kindness!

On arriving, it did not seem to be what I was expecting, but then as you got closer to the pool and beach, it opens out into a lovely property. Incredibly friendly English speaking staff, lovely rooms, good food, and absolutely central to Haad Rin beach which has to be one of the most beautiful in Thailand. Don't stay in the seafront villas as the nightly beach rave can be heard from there, unless that is what you want! Highly recommended, out of season, and out of 'full moon' time, the place was almost deserted. I promise I will return sometime, god willing.

Room Tip: Make sure you arrive at Haad Rin pier, boat Seaflower/Queen. If you end up in Thong Sala, it is che...

We stayed here as part of our family vacation in Thailand.. I wouldn't make Haad Rin my preference beach in Haad Rin but Palita Lodge was a great choice..
They have been very kind in upgrading us for the 2 new rooms they had with great showers.. You can't avoid bugs here on the beach so expect creatures in your room.. but much better than any bungalow you could imagine.. Nice clean showers, meters form the beach.. Breakfast was a la carte so expect to choose only 1 thing you want to eat, can't have yoghurt and eggs, or juice and fruit at the same time :( which is disappointing.. they should definitely improve breakfast.. Thought the quality was great and very tasty.. Just like the meal in their restaurant.. The seating is straight on the beach and though white plastic chairs is not very appealing, the food was excellent and not expensive.. I would recommend this place as its in the nice part of the beach and although we could still hear the music form next door party establishments it was definitely a clam oasis in the haad rin ! Service was great, the staff were attentive and had no problem giving us that little extra we needed to make our stay a total pleasure! The pool is just as great as in the pictures..

Palita Lodge has definately the best location at Haad Rin Beach! It is far enough away from the noisy bars that open on the beach at night but close enough to walk there if you want to join the parties. The beach is among the most beautiful I have seen in Thailand.

The Hotel itself has very nice bungalows, a clean and large pool and a gread outside area to chill out and read or play board games (the hotel has loads of books and games available) while enjoying the beach and sea view. The breakfast is very good and the staff also takes care of any extra wishes. The hotel managers are very friendly and offer free pick up services to and from Haad Rin peek.

Overall, the best location we stayed in during our entire trip. We actually stayed there for 3 nights, then moved to Koh Samui and came back 2 days later because we liked it so much. I highly recommend everyone to stay at Palita Lodge, but book ahead, because it's popular!!!
