“A Place From Your Dreams”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

We visited this cute little resort awhile ago, but I have been meaning to leave a review to let others know what a magical place this was. We arrived by a rickety pick up ride through some crazy roads, but this was all part of the experience. We just picked a cab from by the ferry port, as we did not want to wait for a ride from the resort. We arrived at our room and were speechless. The view was one of the most beautiful we have ever seen. The outdoor bathroom was an experience I thoroughly enjoyed as well. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us, and dinner and drinks (reasonable priced considering they are all the way out from the city) were delicious, and the view and service second to none. We honestly would have stayed here for days if it was not for the terribly uncomfortable bed. Maybe some of the bungalows have better beds, but ours had flannel sheets (in 100 degree weather with no AC) and was as hard as sleeping on a slab of concrete. I loved this place so much though, that I would seriously go back with an air mattress. The snorkeling was remarkable as well, though may be dangerous for small children as you had to be careful getting into the sea. All in all this is a place that I dream about returning to, and for the price, it cannot be beat!

We wanted rustic, inexpensive lodging and we got it here. The views from the dining area and hut were magnificent. And we ended up spending all 12 nights here and hung in the dining area every evening cuddling up with the dog, talking to Tony, the down to earth host with a good humor and ordering dinner from the menu. Its secluded , therefore, add to your budget cost of their truck taxi. We leave at 830 am everyday and got picked up every evening in the center. No beach. After dinner drinks and listening to music was our past time, preferring this to the center's loud atmosphere. You must be prepared to feel the breezy evening air and do not much of anything but chat, and feel close to each other. We loved our stay and only recommend it to people who appreciate low key atmosphere. Just remember, since English is not Thai first language, practice patience and be a globally friendly visitor always.

Room Tip: Room 13 , the farthest one. Has the best breeze . Wake up to the sunrise at least once during your s...

The views at the hotel are incredible, they have great people working there as well. The hotel is far from anything you pretty much rely on them for everything. It's also a bit pricey for their taxi because of the hill area they are in. Large balcony with hammock! The food could be priced a bit better as well. The only bad thing about the room is that you hear everything around you including your neighbors. Depending on how long you stay in ko Tao, I recommend you find a place in town but at the end of that stay give this place a go for a night or 2.

We stayed for three nights and loved it. It was so good to get away from the annoying and hectic Sairee beach.
The eco-friendly bungalows are surrounded by the jungle, looking out onto the sea with views of Lang Khai bay, and the next (I don't know the name) and even across to Ko Pha Ngan. The have balconies with hammocks which were lovely, but beware of ENORMOUS mosquitos that bit us through our clothes.
The walkway down to the beach was a little sketchy, so be careful, but it was so worth it. Make use of their free snorkelling equipment, the water is clear and there are hardly any other people around.
I thought the food was tasty and reasonable and all the staff were friendly.
It would have been useful to know beforehand that this place is only accesible by 4x4 and taxis are expensive, plus the hotel's driver is grouchy and refuses to drive at night. We booked a taxi into town at 5pm (the latest he would take us) and he turned up on our balcony at 4.30, shouting that it was time to go! I was in the shower (this place has out-door bathrooms that don't offer a lot of privacy) ans was not impressed. Then when we left the hotel to go to another on the other side of the island he got really angry with us for not knowing where it was. We had the name and address and he had been told by Moondance staff where we were going, but after a few minutes of driving he kept stamping on the brakes and demanding that we tell him where it was, then he would drive another 100m or so and do the same. Very odd.

Room Tip: Room 10 was mosquito central.

This resort is really located in beautiful place, but there is not much to do if you arrive with family.
The entrance to water is not suitable for children and it becomes problem taking into account the climate in Thailand. It is possible to book transfer to other beaches (they have own taxi and driver in this resort) but they terrible overprice for that. What I disliked very much is that we agreed about "total price" of the transfer to the beach and back with their driver and when we returned out of sudden the price doubled. We had quite an argument about it and in fact it spoiled little bit our stay in Moondance Magic View. Another think when out of sudden after using the service we where asked to pay something extra was breakfast for our daughter. Nobody mentioned we should pay extra for that until 3rd day of our stay. And one more thing, after we booked stay in this resort we tried to contact the resort by email and phone couple of times but without success. Nobody responded to our emails. It was adding some uncertainty to our trip.
I admit that the bungalows are very interesting, staying in these bamboo huts is attraction itself and views are fantastic, but but staff in this resort is really spoiling vacation. I do not recommend this resort. There are nicer place in Thailand.

The hits with hammocks are great, all with sea views. The toilets are open (don let this put you off!) - its something different and helps make a holiday.

Tony is a good laugh and the evening spent with beers, listening to music and watching the stars away from the gap-yaaar masses is well worth the price...
