Positioned in the heart of Thong Sala, the main port town of Koh Phangan, this hotel is only a short stroll from Ao Nai Wok Beach and just a short taxi ride of 15 minutes from the renowned Full Moon party. Apart from its convenient location and breathtaking beach, there is plenty to do here. There are numerous national parks and waterfalls which are definitely worth visiting, or try an authentic Thai massage after a long day of exploring the city. It is also an excellent spot for adventure travelers with scuba diving, jungle trekking, and elephant riding in close proximity. Accommodation at Baan Busaba Hotel provides a warm feel with an aromatic ambience promising to revitalize your senses.

Nice hotel with friendly staff.”
Clean rooms. Very helpful staff. Alec in reception was a real nice guy. They go out of there way to help u. Only bad thing was that it was dead around that area after 11 o clock. But that is not the hotels fault!!! Nice and quite here with swimming pool. If you are looking for some where a little lively stay in haad rin. We like our stay here
Value for money”
Excellent room for the price. Good breakfast included too. Staff very helpful despite limited English for some. The hotel has some dilapidated areas around the pool and a former games room, which could fairly easily be rectified. But we were generally very happy with our stay.
The location is alright. Close to night market with heaps of good cheap food. The room is clean but the air con is really bad. The room is still hot and humid during our 6 days stay, no matter how we adjusted it still doesn’t work. The bathroom is extra wet and humid. Other than that, things are okay.
Need trees cut back around swimming pool
Good value hotel with very clean big bedrooms”
Unbelievable value and including a simple breakfast. The manageress was particularly helpful with bookings and sorting things out. An easy walk from the ferry and into town.

Staff were really nice and helpful.
I read before the reviews and was so - so.. well i have spent 3 night, big room, with double bed. Everything clean, nice pool and 7 mins walk from the pier, they do all kind of services rent moto wash, 7/11 is also just a few minutes far. I had the breakfast included you could choose from a menu and included also a juice and a hot drink. For me so far my best hotel for also the price in thailand I can just recommend.
3x times in a row coming back”
Worth every baht. The rooms are most important clean and fresh. All have ac and bath, unfortunately it takes ages to fill it up - but he it’s there :) In 5 minutes walking you’re on the food market. This was the 3rd time in row to go back to this location and will be back soon again for 1-2 nights.
Good for price”
Staff were really nice and helpful. Location was good and we had scooters to easily get to any other places. Loved the markets down the road. Only issue was they lost my drycleaning which was all of my clothes but they gave me lots of baht in exchange for losing them and were really sorry about it.
terrible. we handed our key into reception so as not to misplace it when out. when we returned the next morning the staff at reception could not find our key. to which we were accused of the following 1:not handing it in 2: coming back during night and taking it 3:a friend collecting it 4: rang our room and accused us of party in room even though we came back in morning end result staff gave our key to wrong room. fortunately they were honest and did not open our room and take all our belongings . as the staff could not remember what happened to key do accused us of been liars. them they refused to apologise until they were pretty much told to by other guests. and then morning of last day refused us breakfast as we were 3 minutes late which after the ordeal we had you would think they would be a bit lenient.over all if you want a hotel where your belongings are in jeopardy when your out seen the island i would recommend this hotel otherwise avoid like the plague.
Clean & comfortable.”
Good stay and very clean. On the day of full moon there were three shuttles to haad rin for a flat 100baht fee per person. Lady at front was helpful. Breakfast was a bit slow but standard for Asia , toast or croissant or eggs or cereal etc. TV had Fox which was an added bonus when we weren't well. If you go to haad rin not on full moon expect to pay 500 path per taxi return even if only one person. Lacked atmosphere but walking distance to the pier and harbour.
i always like this island.”
i come here with my family, the swimming pool is great, in the afternoon, there are some shade can protect child from the sunburn. the breakfest is worth the money i paied. when we check out . the hotel get taxi free for us to pier, i will come back again!
worth of money”
+ location - close to main city road (5min walk), but far enough for quiet sleep; close to pier (10min walk) + swimming pool - nice & clean + poss. rent a bike - no admin obstruction + very pleasant management - breakfast could be a bit better
Great place to stay for one or two nights.”
I am giving this place a high rating because it is a good place to stay for one or two nights. It has a lovely pool and is within five minutes walk to the famous, nightly, food market. It is around ten minutes walk to the ferry pier. The staff are friendly, polite and helpful. Rooms are clean. I used it as a base to look for resorts that were located in nice beach locations. I had two nights here and then booked for 6 nights at a place on the beach in the North West of the Island. The breakfast is small. I would certainly recommend this place for a one to two night stay.
Pleasant stay at Baan Busaba”
I stayed here on the 19th Sept whilst I attended the full moon party so I didn't get to sleep in the room, but, I did find it to be a good size and it had a fridge, air con and a bath. I would return here if I needed to stay by the ferry port. This was less than a 10 minute walk, I managed it with my rucksack. (When you come out of the ferry port, turn left, turn right at the roundabout (you'll see the shops etc), walk up the road a few mins and when you get to the purple Bangkok bank on the left hand side take this road, the hotel is on the right hand side about 5 or so mins up). As for the area itself, I didn't like it much. I walked around a little and had an ok massage and then headed to the party. This took about 25mins to get there, the hotel does also take you to the party but I was with friends not staying so didn't use it.
Clean, comfortable, budget”
We just needed a place to put our stuff for the full moon party. It is really close to the pier so it was a good thing that we could catch the ferry the next morning. I didn't actually sleep there though but the hotel was nice and clean.
Honestly is the best policy”
Had a lovely 3 night stay at Baan Busaba during the busy full moon period. Room was good value for money and most importantly clean. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. Great location away from the hustle bustle in the day with the main beach parties only a 100 baht, 15 min taxi ride away. Having partied hard during the full moon party we were a little hazy the following morning when checking out and catching our boat to Koh Samui. Upon arrival the sickening realisation that we were in Koh Samui and our passports and ipods were in Koh Phangan Baan Busaba safety boxes!!! Contacted the hotel fully expecting to have to get the hour ferry ride back, but Baan Busaba insisted they would have our passports sent over to us in Koh Samui. They even paid for the cost of it. We collected our passports and ipods from the port the following day safe and sound. Would like to take this chance to once again thank the staff for their assistance. I would recommend staying here to everyone. Great place on top of everything else they did for us.
Great hotel, very clean, good location.”
Reaally loved our stay, came in a big group for the fool moon. The pool and rooms are nice, its clean, has a poolside bar, right near a night market so food is cheap as chips. Lovely staff. Very reasonably priced aswell. Only downpoint was that some of washing got ruined but wasn't too bad. and very easy to rent scooters also. Would highly recommend staying here.
Good hotel in good area”
Booked here originally for 3 nights and ended up staying 6. The hotel is located in a quite area of thong sala but only a short 5 min walk to the heart of it. The rooms are very clean and air con works brilliant. The pool also was good and it had a bar aswell. The staff were excellent on my stay as l actually injured my foot one evening and the staff made sure l was ok and got me any medical stuff l needed.
Really nice service. good hotel!”
it was really nice, include everything. only wifi in the room was missing. the pool is great. nice and helpful staff. have safe. have bath in the rooms. (really) hot water in the shower, and a good water pressure. include taxi from and to the port. it is alittle far from the hadrin beach (100 bhat taxi to one way), but close to nice main road, and not too loudy.
