"Great little resort near Thong Sala pier."
Charles - March 8, 2020
I stayed in the Standard room and the Standard bungalow room, both were very clean, comfortable and great for the money.

Best resort ever!!!!”
We stayed at Da Kanda for our honeymoon from August 23-26, 2018 and again from August 28-September 1, 2018. We left in between to head farther south on Koh Phangan for the full moon party and planned to go to another island, however our initial stay was so incredible all we wanted to do was go back! The beach was the best we encountered on the entire island (and we scootered around about half of it), the staff, especially Nan and Yu, were the friendliest and most accommodating hosts you could ask for, and the resort ambience was unparalleled. We travelled during a low season and had the beach and entire resort to ourselves much of the time. We spent the days playing cards on the balcony of our beachfront villa, walking the beautiful beach, and swimming in the perfect pool. We truly couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing, beautiful, and memorable honeymoon spot. When we returned the second time Nan and Yu knew we were coming back due to our reservation and made sure we had the BEST villa at the resort. They put sweet smelling flowers and swan towels on our bed and lovingly showed us to our room with huge smiles. It was an unforgettable trip and we will absolutely return. We are so grateful to have chosen this resort and it continues to be the best decision we made while in Thailand.
Great place by the beach and very attentive staff”
This is our 2nd stay at Da Kanda, the first being in December 2013. We decided to come back to Koh Phangan to complete the agama yoga course and didn't hesitate to stay a 2nd time. Agama yoga is a 20 minute drive from here (Sruthanu) and we were planning on staying in this area originally whilst doing yoga but we managed to get such a nice bungalow on the beach for such a good price we decided to stay for the full month. Rooms are serviced daily and are large enough for both of us to practice our yoga in. We opted for ones right on the beach (new ones built in December 2013) but you can get cheaper ones closer to reception. As it's by the beach, it's about a 10 minute walk to where the street markets are and most of the shops, bars and restaurants, but the walk is a pleasant one. The main thing for me are the staff at the resort. They are always smiling and willing to help you with anything. They even arranged a jeep for us to get back and forward to yoga every day. The resort is ideal for couples, families and everyone really and I would definitely recommend it.
I couldn't believe how well I was treated at Da Kanda. The woman who works the front desk has a real "service" heart and a warm personality. A friend and I went diving out on the beach, brought back a catch of clams and crabs, and brought them back to the hotel restaurant, which cooked them up for us. As a connoisseur of fine drip, my only complaint is that the coffee they provide in the morning is the "instant" variety, and definitely not worth 30 baht a cup. I stayed two nights here and then moved to another area of the island, but came back to Da Kanda because they really make you feel at home. I will definitely go back if I return to Phangan.
great location, nice and quiet”
The Da Kanda Villa Beach Resort is worth it , the location was perfect away from all the busy crowds and only a short walk into town. The room i had was very big and also very comfortable, the breakfast was fine , there is this little kitchen not far from the resort which has meals for 50 baht , just turn left
We enjoyed pretty much our staing in Da Kanda Beach Resort: the place is amazing, our bungalow (beach front villa) was directly on the beach and we could enjoyed an amazing view of the seaside. The cleaning service was good (but you have to call them to provide it), the restaurant's food was nice and not expensive at all. Pesonnel staff was so kind and always willing to help. We really look forward to come back there!!!
Very nice hotel”
We had a pleasant stay at Da Kanda. The room was immaculate and we really liked the open air bathroom. It felt very modern. The pool was really pretty and we had the beach all to ourselves. It is very close to Thong Sala but felt isolated and was very quiet. Thee staff was very friendly and the pet pig that roams the grounds was very cute until it tried to eat off my bathing suit.
First the location. It is max 15min walk from pier and the centre of Thong Sala so you can save money on taxi. The bungalow itself is really spacious with huge bed, wardrobe and a sofa. The bathroom is also big with separate shower and a bath. The air-con works great which is sometimes problematic in Thailand (no too cold not to hot). The ocean is just a few steps from the bungalow, at the beach there are resort's sun loungers on which you can lay down. The water is calm and not too deep (reaches the waist of adult man) which is perfect for family with children. It is also a great place for kitesurfing. The dishes at the restaurant are tasty and if you want you can order a dinner to you room and eat it at your terrace and admire the breathtaking view of the ocean. At the resort there are scooter rental and travel agency what is very comfortable. When it comes to staff this requires a longer description. The lady at the reception was extremely helpful, always smiling and was speaking English really good. We would like to thank her for all her help after our scooter accident in which we were injured. She was asking all the time if we need anything, is everything is ok, she arranged us a discount for the damage of the scooter, let us stay beyond check out hour while we were waiting for a ferry and what is more, she also arranged us a transport to the pier. She is lovely person and because of her attitude towards us it will be a great pleasure to visit this place again in the future. We sincerely recommend this resort.
nice resort, good position”
We had a very nice stay in Da Kanda Resort. The room was comfortable, the position is very good (to the port and to the city centre) and they can provide you everything (scooters, tours, etc) and the same price than outside. All the team members have been very nice, friendly and helpful with us. They even have a free trasfer to the port, very appreciated. The pool and the beach were great, as the breakfast and everything. Highly recommended.
Great affordable hotel with awesome staff!”
The Da Kanda Resort was a pleasant surprise after staying in some mediocre places around Thailand while traveling on a budget. The rooms were super clean and the staff was very friendly. They even gave us fresh bananas growing on the hotel grounds everyday. The rooms come with mini fridges wish is especially nice to keep your drinks cold in the scorching hot temperatures. It is in a decent location to access many areas. The beach side bungalows looked great if you were traveling as a couple.
Went the extra mile”
I recently stayed at Da Kanda. Whilst requesting my free taxi pickup by email. I happened to mention it my my birthday. Upon arrival, the staff were so friendly and welcoming, and greeted me with a big happy birthday. They then informed me they had upgraded us. We were shown to our beautiful garden villa. Inside they had decorated the bed with fresh flowers. It was a very nice surprise. The whole stay was excellent. The staff made so much effort. Would definitely recommend!
I was on a rolling holiday on Koh Phagnan, 1 week to 2 weeks, Re-booked back into Da Kanda as its a great location and has a stunning blissful beach. Really nice resort.
best service & nice beach beach”
We are very happy and enjoin during stay here all staff are very helpful and beast service The have offered free tax round trip from thong sala pier to hotel, the restaurant and beach very nice and not expensive We have went to haad rin for party not so far from hotel but cost for taxi 100-150/pax The room very comfortable and nice room , clean and have full of basic room facilities, ac, hot shower, safety box, tv and free wireless We are coming on next season and we will recommend for our friend
Excellent Stay ”
We had an absolutely delightful visit at Da Kanda. We were hesitant (and almost talked ourselves out of it) after reading less than desirable reviews. In the end, we were glad we stayed. We started in one of the double rooms overlooking the garden. Nice view, room was nice. Nothing extraordinary, but great value (off season rate). The pool is a great asset, and we spent our mornings at the restaurant with a cup of coffee enjoying the gorgeous view, ambiance and catching up on e-mails. We extended several days and upgraded to one of the bungalows. Absolutely extraordinary. Even spent one afternoon in the little window seat area enjoying the AC and comfort of the room. They just replaced the AC unit in the bungalow and it was incredible (even got cold). WiFi worked great, even for streaming, in both rooms. I did a conference call one morning (although it did go out right before, they got it up and running within minutes of me letting them know). We didn't use the pick up service since we our travel over was confusing (didn't know arrival time), but I imagine they would be reliable for pickup. Best if you call that morning. If you're looking for a swimming beach, this area of the island isn't it. Nice beach setting, but very shallow and not swimming per se. We rented a motor bike and went to Haad Rin two days (gorgeous beach).
one of the best hotels all around”
the food at the restaurant was so good we ate most of our meals there. the staff was as friendly as you get and they were always helpful! the location of the hotel was right on the beach and very close to the main part of the island for shopping and spas. the pool was wonderful to relax at and if i go back to koh phangan i will definitely stay at this resort again!
Nice place to stay”
Da Kanda Villa was suppose to pick us up from the peer but they didn't which cost us an extra 200 bhat so make sure to confirm pick up with them before you get on the boat. We spent about $36 canadian per night and I think the rooms cost a lot more now. Otherwise: - The people at reception spoke fairly good English but at times had some issues understanding what I was trying to say - They were a bit over worked at times and we had to wait to check out - The resteraunt had a lot of issues with our orders and tried to over charge us for items we never purchased, I would suggest eating somewhere else - The rooms were nice and spacious but the air conditioning turns off when you leave so it is very hot when you come home after a day at the beach - The location is really nice and you can easily walk to the peir along the beach and in to town
Nice Last Minute Deal”
i really enjoyed my stay here, but am glad i got the room half off online as it wouldn't have really been worth the full price. the room was really nice with a dvd player, and while i didn't love the outdoor bathroom it didn't bother me much. the food was really good, and yes it's a bit more expensive than going in to town but overall good value. town was touristy but good night market for dinner. staff friendly, though sometimes slow service (but where in thailand is that not the case?!). especially liked the guy from burma at the restaurant, very friendly. i was looking for peace and quiet and that's exactly what i got here. the place could use more beach chairs as there were only 3. my last day i took a walk and realized how the surrounding beaches were filled with debris, so i appreciate how da kanda keeps up with making sure their beach is pristine everyday.
really nice place”
I enjoyed staying here, the location is within walking distance of the town of thong sala which has a few bars and a good night market and shops. There was plenty of sunbeds around the pool area and right on the beach. The staff were helpful and friendly. They will pick you up from the pier if you call ahead
Great Hotel with great service and great staff”
My stay here was excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and very personable. They continually were ready to organise anything I asked. They treated me like I was family. The beach is lovely and quite, but you are only 2 streets away from shops, food and some great bars and restaurants. All in all I would continue to come back every time I'm in Koh PhaNgan!
Myself and my cousin stayed for 2 nights. It was fantastic! The room is clean, spacious with modern furnishings. The staffs are warm and friendly.The location is great, near to town and parties. It is one of the best resorts we stayed in Koh Phangan.
Definitly worth your money, we took the villa double (35 euros), and for having test different hotels in Koh Phangan, i'm not sure that so many hotels can propose the same amenities for this price. The staff was so friendly and helpful ( waiters and reception ). WOOOOW !!!! Only bad point : WiFi didnt reach our room
