Cool spot near the full moon party”
We really enjoyed our stay here. Its close enough to walk to haad rin (where the full moon parties are) and far enough that it's quiet. Its got the friendly vibe of a hostel but is a good step up from a dorm room. Each room has a double and single bed, so you can split the room between 3 ppl if you really want to save money. We opted for the ac room and were very glad we did. It was very comfortable. There are two fans on the ceiling that are independently controllable as well as an ac unit, so you won't be uncomfortable. The bathroom was pretty standard except that there is actually hot water (not the ubiquitous suicide (electrical unit) shower). So we were pleased. There is a restaurant with a huuuuge variety of options, though this makes everything sort of mediocre. The portions were a little small and they charge separately for rice so the cheaper items are a little deceptive. The pool is great and most importantly, the drinks are STRONG. A mojito bucket is 250 baht and there is about a third of a bottle of liquor in it! We stayed in 3 different bungalows on koh phangan and this was BY FAR the best. Highly recommended. Rent a motorbike when you get off the ferry (150 baht per day) so you don't have to take a taxi there and back (100 each way).
Had the best stay at Coral Bungalows, room was clean and huge with a double bed and single bed for 2 of us. The hotel restaurant had loads of choice and food was really nice every night. The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough to help. Hotel is about a ten min walk from the main area of Haad Rin but it’s well lit and there are always people about. Stayed over the Half Moon party and taxis were organised for us. Would definitely stay again as it was the best value for money.
Best stay ever!”
First booked for 1 night. Booked 5 nights more, because we had a very good time at Coral. The staff was very friendly, making you feel like home. In the evening it is very cozy in the restaurant. The pool is very nice and clean. Haad Rin beach a 7/11 are at walking distance. All in all had a great 5 days at Coral Bungalows.
We booked for 2 nights initially but expended our stay for one more night because we loved it! and probably because of the low season it was a great value for money/quality service. Initially we were accommodated in the ac room next to the restaurant and the beach but because of the music till 23.00 we asked to change the room and we're located at the very end without any disturbing noise in the evening. So the staff was very helpfull and efficient. We had wonderful 150 bhat massages (250-300 on the island), very resonably priced meals at the restaurant and 150 Bhat moto bike rent on site (250 on island), which was great. The room it's self quite basic but clean and spacious. Nothing to expect more for a such price! And just 10 min walk to the beautiful Haad rin beach! Recommend it very much!
Good but possibly not for everyone!”
Fantastic location and good value for money for the 'Home of the Original Pool Party'. Less than 10 min walk to Haad Rin beach and right on the sunset beach. Clean pool and lots of space to chill, either in the bar, restaurant or poolside. The pool party was a bit tame when we were there (due to alcohol restriction on a Buddhist holiday) but wouldn't have been bothersome from a noise and sleep point of view, as the bungalows are set back from the pool. Staff were helpful enough and very inoffensive - not sure quite how some reviewers had a bad experience with them! The main drawback to the place is the bungalow rooms themselves - pretty poor efforts have been made to keep them clean, stained bedsheets, walls in need of painting. I can only speak for the fan room but it got pretty hot and sticky two of the nights. Fortunately the windows/mozzie mesh were effective at keeping insects out. Also the bathroom was decent enough. Overall I'd stay again!
Great place, great deal”
Great place and a great price... friendly staff, good deals on motorbike rentals, Thai massage, and laundry. I will always stay at Coral Bungalows when I’m in Koh Phangan...
Coral bungalow is a great place. Friendly staff, great power shower excellent fans and air con. Felt safe and secure. Restaurant food was delicious and very reasonable. Overall I would strongly recommend coral bungalows for a place to stay in haadrin/koh phangan.
I stayed for one month at this place and I can say that is a big place, with a big pool, big restaurant, cheap prices, the cheapest price for a thai massage I've seen all around thailand for only 150 thb! Cool staff at the restaurant, amazing staff at the reception (THANKS!!), they accept credit cards, the rooms are big and confortable, the location is very good, steps from the beach, close to haad rin beach if you want to go to the full moon party. All that you can need is inside that resort!
Don't listen to the poor reviews ”
Our first night we stayed in a bungalow for 330 baht. Checked out this one for only 230 and was hooked. Cheap restaurant with great variety. Amazing staff. Perfect location. Cheap scooters. HOT showers. Decent wifi. HUGE rooms. Best value for money in koh Phangan. Stay here, it is GREAT. They book cheaper boats and give you a free drink when you check in. Would come back without a doubt. If you're interested in any tattoos, go to skull tattoo for an artist with 20+ years bamboo experience.
Great Backpacker Hotel”
We are in our mid twenties and came to town for the full moon party. We made life long friends at coral bungalows and truly enjoyed our time there. Our room was outdated but we didn’t mind. The pool area is incredible and the restaurant is very affordable. The staff was very helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend this to young travelers coming in for the Full Moon Party. Probably best for families to avoid Coral Bungalows during full moon time since it gets loud at night.
Amazing service, great facilities”
Truly made our koh phangan experience unforgettable, the staff are so nice and helpful in terms of booking transporation, activities, motorbike rentals (super cheap). We booked two nights, were able to stay one extra night with no issue. Bungalow was clean and big size but there was no daily cleaning offered but we also came during the halfmoon party and left during full moon so they were swamped. Wifi was good. Food was decent. Bed was comfy.
Good cheap resort-hostel”
We extended our stay by 3 nights here we liked it so much. 10 minute walk to Haad Rin beach, beautiful and clean pool and restaurant on site, and nice rooms. We upgraded to an A/C room due to the March heat but they changed us without problem. We came right after the full moon so it was quiet and relaxing. Our last night they hosted a pool party though and there was loud music blasting until 3am. The other nights it was nice and quiet though.
Nothing to complain about. Room was very basic but had everything a budget traveller needed and more - facilities exceeded expectations. Has a great restaurant/cafeteria/hang out area with great food (good prices) and a pool. Short walk to Haad Rin and cheap massages are a bonus. Would stay here again.
Great Value for money ”
I had a great time staying at the hotel . within walking distance from crazy Haad Rin. The hotel is clean , cheap massage , cheap food. I quite enjoy it . Give it a go. Excellent value for money. The reception staffs are the friendliest.
Lovely place but very quiet after full moon!”
We had a great stay here, only 10 mins to walk into the main part of Haad Rin and the pool was great. The restaurant also had a HUGE menu and we loved the food here! Room was basic but huge with a double bed and a single bed which was lucky as the blankets they provide are tiny so we had one each. We arrived after full moon so it was sooooo quiet and we didn't get to experience any of their famous pool party's! Can imagine it's good fun when it's busy though.
Superb staff and Thai food for the value!”
Food was fine and comfortable for the price. Stayed 12days and then moved to a "higher end" hotel. Corals staff and food outshines every other place I've ever stayed in Koh Phangan. There's been about a dozen. I will stay here when I next return.
Perfect Place for the FMP or for the Party Animals”
We stayed at Coral for two nights over the Full Moon Party. This is the PERFECT PLACE for young party Animals!! But that comes at a cost! The front desk demands everyone's Passports ( For any damage caused to the rooms), and as we had rented scooters we did not have have all our passports, so we had to pay 6000Baht per passport missing! I found this very unreasonable and the staff we rude about the situation. However after seeing how trashed and out of hand some people get, I now understand why. The Rooms were really Basic (a bit dingy to be honest) but for the price and the location it was worth it for the full moon party (FMP). Wifi could only be reached by the restaurant and not in the rooms The Restaurant was absolutely fantastic! Amazing food and great staff! Coral Really put in alot of effort to make the build up to the FMP a memorial one! We were able to walk from our hotel to the FMP and walk home after the Jol! The Pool is pretty awesome, however there is no swimming after 8pm, and there are camera's and if they catch you (which they will!!) its a fine of 2000Baht! There is no swimming beach here either as there are fishing boats (but you can dip in to cool off!). Overall this place was perfect for the FMP, 2 nights were more than enough. It has great locations for the Party Animals, a nice pool, good food and lots and lots of young drunk people!
basic but good location”
If you stay here then prepare to party. Very good location for the full moon party as its a 10 minute walk from haad rin beach. The room is very basic and dark and we were told there are many break ins for bungalows so don't leave any thing valuable.
okay, terrible pillow and bed”
coral bungalows was great if you liked to drink. It had a nice pool and bar. The restaurant food was basic. The rooms make you feel like you're on spring break in Mexico. The bed and pillow were terrible, woke up with hurt neck. They had nice scooters for rent. Good location on the beach and 10 minute walk to haad rin beach.
Great place to stay”
Staff were very helpful, located close to Haad Rin and the full moon party but still easy to sleep by night, plenty of facilities and the room was pretty big too
Take a look at these facilities:
