    Paradise!”

    Couldn’t really ask for much better than this on the island! The location is amazing, right beside Haad Yao beach, amazing pool on the cliff over looking the ocean, the bungalow is clean and beautiful, has nice big windows and cozy bed. The staff are so friendly, the food is great. Good vibes all around. Definitely would come back!

    not exactly what we were expecting but was ok”

    It looks a lot nicer in the pictures than real life. The pool is noce but a little murky. We chilled out at the pool a couple of days and did enjoy it. The view is fantastic. We didn't try their restaurant as we went out every day exploring on a bike we hired from down the road. We also contacted them to collect us from the ferry port as it says they supply this. I assumed it was complimentary but its 150B per person. If I'd have known this we would have just taken the taxis that are there waiting off the ferry. So, our room was pretty nice, steps are steep up to the actual hut from the ground and its all stone steps from the restaurant, be careful as some are loose. Also the bungalows where we were were above the restaurant level and therefore near main road so was noisy and music morning til night from next door restaurant. Also both got a bit unwell which we think could be from damp/mould in the wooden hut. My pillow had mould on when case removed. TVs do not work in room.

    A lovely hotel”

    Before I booked this hotel, I had read some negative reviews about the staff. My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The staff were wonderful., the views were amazing and the food was really good (we had breakfast, lunch and dinner at various times during our stay). The room was clean and had everything we needed. I would happily stay at High Life Bungalow next time we are in Koh Phangan..

    Good location on Haad Yao ”

    Decent room with garden view. Bathroom was a big mosquito place, whenever I entered the bathroom it had a lot of mosquitos. If you close the bathroom door, there was no problem with mosquitos in the room. Depending on location of the room there is plenty of street noise. I am sure if you have one of the bungalows closer to the beach it is a much better experience. Nice pool with a great view.

    If you are searching for a well priced Bungalow with stunning ocean view and a gorgoeus beach, definetly visit High Life Bungalows. The owner is very nice and offers good accomodation, the staff is very friendly too. Breakfast was well, too. If searching for great authentic Thai Cuisine nearby you have to visit the 9 million Restaurant nearby.

    Fantastic ”

    Location: near to the sea, stunning view and you can do laundry and rent scooter next to the bungalows. The location is relaxed but not too low. Food: you can do breakfast, lunch and diner very good. We’ve just had Thai cuisine for dinner, which was really delicious!! But you can have western cuisine as well. Breakfast was good too and also various. Accomandation: We slept in pretty nice bungalows which were really good equipment and clean. From time to time we had little guests(Geckos) in our bungalows but you don’t have to be afraid, it is quite normal for Thailand and they are really shy and harmless and the best thing about those, they eat mosquitoes and other little bugs:) Staff: really really kind and friendly. Bar: of course you can have a little drink in the end of the day with really cool barkeepers while you’re listening to relaxing reggae music. Summed up is this such relaxed and nice place to slow down and to have a great time in Koh Phangan.

    Cute little bungalow ”

    Great staff, great food, and super great beach area. My friend and I really loved the beach. Although the location is “far” from the touristy part of the island, it was well worth it. We personally thought the beaches and vibes were better on this side of the island. You can also rent a moterbike and get around super easily. Highly recommend! The bungalows are super cute too. The beach is beautiful and not rocky at all.

    Awesome Views with Beach Access”

    We used the resorts van service from the ferry which cost 150 per person. Staff was very welcoming on our arrival but they are not going to 'suck up' or wait on you hand and foot. We stayed in Deluxe Bungalow with Seaview room A17 and had a great view of the beach and sea. Room was as advertised. There were rooms/balconies on either side of ours so there was not a feeling of secludedness. The Balconies rocked as they had a Hammock, 2 chairs, and 2 lounge chairs. We were unable to get room A1 which all of the reviews we read say is the best. Hotel had a pool that offered a great view of the sea, beach, and an obstructed sunset. The food selection at the hotel is varied and everything we ate tasted great. We did a fishing trip on our last day and the hotel prepared and cooked our mackerel for us. It was delicious and very reasonably priced. The walk to the beach was easily accessible and Haad Yai beach is about 1km away. There is an ATM about halfway down the beach at another bar/resort and a good mini mart at the other end of the beach. Plenty of spots to drink and eat directly on the beach.

    Friendly staff, peaceful location, awesome resident parrot

    We stayed in a nice bungalow which was much better than the usual tat you get further south in Koh Phangnan. It rained for our entire stay so we were a bit restricted in what we could do. But we enjoyed hanging out at the bar and beach there, they have a beautiful green parrot that comes and sits on your table during breakfast. I've stayed on Koh Phangan many times but High life is definitely the best spot for me.

    It seems they don’t care”

    Amazing potential with the location, views, etc., but the place isn’t kept very well and the staff seem unhappy to have to serve the guests. Our room was cleaned every day, but never seemed very clean and was extremely basic in its furnishings for this price point. To get to our room we walked past a spot where trash accumulated and what looked like runoff from the washing machines was released on the rocks right next to the sea. We would get an occasional smile and act of friendliness from the staff or owners but these were outnumbered by acts of indifference and even subtle rudeness. As we were leaving, their taxi was out and when I asked if they could help they told me to walk up the hill to the main road to get my own... no offer to call one or send one of the staff to bring one down for us. Definitely not up to par with my experiences from many years of traveling in Thailand.

    Beautiful location ”

    We enjoyed our stay very much. Loved the pool and the views from pool and restaurant. Good selection of tasty food - Thai and western menu. You keep track of your purchases by writing down in a book, this was useful for tracking our daily spend, then you settle when you leave. Beautiful beach could be accessed from the steps off the side of the restaurant. Reef at far end was a bit disappointing though. It was probably nice a long time ago. We stayed in a garden view bungalow which was fine for us, however might be difficult for anyone with walking difficulties, as it was a bit up hill and the steps into the bungalow were a little steep. Air con was nice and cold and could watch tv in English. Mini fridge available too to keep your drinking water cold. We loved it.

    Great place for family vacation”

    We stayed in High life bungalow for 4 nights and extended our stay for one more. It was a very nice experience. Room was big, the pool was awesome with great views overlooking the see. We loved dining in the restaurant and watching the sunsets. And most importantly it was just few steps away from a very beautiful beach called Haad Yao. The food in the hotel is very good and for a reasonable price. The guys who work there are not really customer oriented, but if you ask, they try to help (limitations of English is the key). We booked a day trip to Angthong park, it was amazing!

    great location but very overpriced”

    This could be a great resort if the owners could only be bothered to care about their guests instead of just caring about the money. We stayed 8 knights and often felt we were a hiderance rather than paying guests. Almost never a hello from the owners sat at reception The staff are so tired they were falling asleep on the dinning tables or laying around whilst playing on their phones. You have to fill out your own order book for any food so they don't have to bother training their Burmese staff or pay English speaking staff. We always had to ask to get the room cleaned and an extra ask for clean sheets after 5 nights We have stayed in many resorts in Thailand over many years and this one could be great if the owners could just be bothered to care about their guests but sadly not. I do not write many reviews and try and not to be too negative about hotels and resorts but the high life deserves special attention considering how much they charge.

    Friends trip”

    Stayed here 4 nights- two female travelers. Beautiful hotel and location. Very nice staff, beautiful pool. Arrived one day late and had called and emailed as requested but this information wasn't received by booking staff. As a result our Garden bungalows were rebooked and full upon arrival. The booking staff worked with us to get us into R2 bungalow together for an upgrade fee. The room was gorgeous with a fabulous view and we were very happy with it but had to move for our final night to A2. A bigger room, decent view but a little dingier/darker. Pros: beautiful balconies/views, large bathrooms with open showers. Attentive staff, great pool, relaxed vibe. Cons: VERY hard beds, rooms need general maintenance and a deep clean in bathrooms. Rooms with A/C have no fans which would be helpful in the hot months. We also had two items stolen off our balcony while drying but I strongly suspect this was fellow travelers not staff.
