Paradise resort with only few "flaws"”
First of all, the Thanya Resort is at the best part of the beach apart from the even more southern Koh Ngai Resort, but from there you'd have to cross the cliff every time you want to go to any other place on the island. The Thanya is a lovely place to spend a week or two, with a great pool, wonderful graden, very polite staff and a terrific beach and view. The bungalows are okay and satisfyingly clean (the occasional ants and a lizard or two are probably not avoidable in this climate), the shower is rather basic though. The mattresses are pretty firm but we slept very well.. The restaurant is good but not great, especially the burgers could be better. A bit pricey overall. The breakfast is okay, but it can become boring after a while (no bread apart from toast, for example, no cheeses or sliced sausage, and the croissants are rather bland). Omelette to order was good. The price for the accommodation is justified. Koh Ngai as a destination overall isn't cheap but it's worth it.
Lovely resort with amazing staff”
We stayed at Thanya twice during our trip and didn't regret that choice - the resort is nicely located at the end of the beach, peacefully and quiet with nice and clean bungalows. Personally, I would prefer if the SeaView Bungalows were right on the beach instead of having the pool inbetween, but I guess it's perfect if you have small kids you want to watch. On our first stay, the breakfast left quite a bit to be desired, but on our second stay a week later they had already listened to feedback and greatly improved breakfast, making it the best on our whole trip! But where the Thanya really shines is service: The hotel managers are more dedicated and concerned about the well-being of the guests than anything I've ever seen. I was sick the first 3 days of our stay, and they would do everything to make things easier for me and my girlfriend: When she went to buy some water, they sent her back and brought us a whole tray of water bottles (which they never charged!), when she wanted to get something to eat they sent someone to the bungalow to take our order, every breakfast from there on would be brought to the bungalow and they were constantly asking if there's something they could do to make things easier for us. As soon as one of the nicer bungalows near the pool & restaurant was free they offered us to move there, making things a lot easier while I was sick. Needless to say I would give them 6 stars for staff performance if I could :-). Wholeheartedly recommended for everyone searching for a nice and quiet resort with an amazing staff. If you're searching for party, nightlife or shopping look somewhere else, but then you shouldn't have come to Koh Ngai to begin with :)
A lovely break from the everyday”
We had 5 days/nights at the Koh Ngai Thanya Resort and our experience was good. Despite some early email confusion, once we arrived, check-in was smooth and we were very happy with our accommodations. The resort is beach front and has ample equipment for adults and children to go snorkelling or enjoy other water related activities. The restaurant was good, some days the food was better than other days. Breakfast was a pretty standard offering of Western and Eastern fare. My husband came down with a terrible cold/cough while we were there and the manager was most helpful in providing some syrop and couph drops. The entire wait staff was very personable and friendly. If you are looking to really get away from it all and do very little but swim and sunbathe, then Koh Ngai is the place to go. My only criticism of the place would be the fact that there is no town/centre and hence no real culture, but that has nothing to do with this lovely hotel.

Relaxing days with nice christmas celebration”
We spend 3 days at the Koh Ngai Thanya Resort. Snorkeling possibilities are in front of the hotel and the diving offerings are near to the hotel. To walk to the other beaches is a little bit exhausing because you need to walk cross the island over a mountain. The hotel stuff is very nice. The only pity was the number of available deckchairs (in reality a lot but not for each bungalow). The available are occupied starting early in the morning with towels from tourist all over the world. Overall we had a great stay and could imagine to stay longer there. Being the first time in Thailand we wanted to test some other island in addition.
Great Location ”
We stayed during low season. It was like, renting the entire resort to ourselves. Great beach and the pool is open 24 hrs a day. The hotel staffs are very kind and accommodating. Food prices are reasonable and plenty of dishes to choose from the menu. The place is very quiet and a perfect place for total relaxation. Koh Lipe is such a beauty, but Koh Ngai is even more beautiful. Will definitely come back to see the emerald cave. It was an awesome experience staying at Thanya Resort.
Very nice resort in a very nice place”
We loved Koh Ngai and Thanya Resort. We had a beach front bungalow which was very clean and nice, even if not luxurious. The owner and all staff were always very kind and helpful. The sea is fantastic but I appreciated also the pool in the evening, when the water is warm and makes it very pleasant when the air gets a bit colder. I would definitely recommend Thanya resort if you go to Koh Ngai
Beautiful hotel on a quiet beach”
Thanya Resort is a beautiful property on Koh Ngai. The accommodations are simple and perfect for a relaxing vacation on a beautiful quiet island. The food is good and the staff is fabulous. There's not a lot to do on Koh Ngai but enjoy the beach, kayak, SCUBA, and hiking around the island....a perfect vacation get-a-way!
Beautiful hotel in a wonderful island”
We really enjoyed our stay at Koh Ngai and Thanya. Beautiful hotel in front of an amazing beach. Great swimming pool and garden. Really nice rooms (although they need some updates). Our bungalow was located in front of a small lagoon, wich made it really quiet and with nice views (others were not that nicely located). We missed some organized activities like snorkeling trips to the nearby islets, they were offering only private longtails. Price is high for Thailand but good for European standards.
The four nights my partner and I spent at the Thanya resort were perhaps the most relaxing and idyllic we've ever experienced. The island itself is wonderful, with a long, sandy, quiet beach and shallow, clear water that's perfect for snorkelling or just cooling off. The hotel grounds are attractively arranged with flowering Frangipani trees and our bungalow was clean and comfortable with a view of the sea. We received a friendly welcome and continued to be met with good-humour and conscientiousness by all of the hotel staff. The food was excellent, with our particular dietary requirements catered for without fuss. Although there were a few cheaper places to eat on the island, we found that the food at Thanya couldn't be beaten, so we returned there for at least one meal a day throughout our stay. The breakfast (included in the price of the room) was particularly good value. I rarely review hotels online, but Thanya was so genuinely excellent that I couldn't pass up the opportunity!
Loved the location and ambiance”
Thanya was one of our favorite places in Thailand. The bungalows and beach were amazing, and the staff was really helpful. A few of the fixtures and infrastructure pieces around the property were abbot dated, but those things are easily overlooked when staying there. Highly recommend koh ngai and thanya!
Wonderful place, wonderful island”
we stayed at thanya for five nights as the first part of our three weeks in southerns thailand and the place was everything we dreamed for. thanya is located as the last resort on the beach which makes it quiet and relaxed place. the beach here is definately the best we experienced on the island. the sand is white and garbage free, the water is calm and clear which makes it perfect for kids and snorkeling. only a few meters from the coast you have a great coral reef. everything at thanya is beautiful and aesthetic. surrounded by lush tropical forests, with swaying palms and blooming trees, and an azure horizon dotted with small rocky islands in the distance. this is absolutely paradisiacal! the staff at thanya is kind and helpful. from the moment we got of the long tail on the beach to the moment we left we were met with kindness and warmth. they make you feel so extremely welcome here. especially the young waitress nong who worked so hard to make everyone feel welcome. the restaurant is fin but won't leave a long lasting impression. they serve classic thai dishes as well as some european classics. the breakfast is simple but decent enough - yoghurt, fresh fruit, muesli, white bread, omelettes, pancakes, juice, coffe, tea as well as some warm thai dishes. you won't leave hungry but neither overly impressed. we stayed in a tropical garden bungalow and though we would envy the fully booked beach front bubgalows but we were mistaken. out bungalow was at the back of the resort and the location turned out to be perfect. we enjoyed peace and privacy here at the back as well as a great view thanks to the location on the hillside. the beachfront and family bungalows may be closer to the beach but they also have people passing by all day. so i would recommend the cheaper and more peaceful option in the back.
It was such a perfect night at the Koh Ngai. The resort and staff are great with private location which located at the end of the beach. If I could visit there again, I would definately stay at Koh Ngai resort.
Relatively new and fresh hotel.”
short: nice, clean resort (most comfortable on the island?). nothing extra in service or personality. the hotel is quite modern. hot/cold water, fridge, etc is not standard in these parts of thailand. thanya provides probably the best conveniences you can find on the island. however, koh ngai is a tourist-only island. therefore you will miss any expected family-friendly care and service. the staff works there - they do not live here. staff are correct, but not more than that. without putting any valuation in it, i concluded that the majority of the staff in thanya are gay.
Perfect paradise retreat for tropical holidays”
We stayed in Thanya Resort 6 days and we enjoyed each minute from the warm welcome by the Management to the very last moment when we had to leave this wonderful hotel. Everything was perfect - hospitality of the staff, quality of food, the setting on the best part of the beach, amenities (great swimming pool!) and quality of the accommodation. It was definately a highlight of our three-weeks trip to Thailand. We felt totally relaxed and could not expect more. The Christmas Eve Dinner was a real feast! If you are looking for quiet chill out on one of the most beautiful beaches that's the place! Very intimate place, no crowds, loud parties, hordes of children, etc. If we were asked what could be improved we would point out just two little things: sunbeds (some are broken) and safe deposit boxes (not available in the bungalows). Overall - perfect paradise retreat for tropical holidays.
Overall great experience with caveats ”
great location and general facilities, we were there in the low season so resort was about 30% occupied, resort is on the best patch of the white sand beach on koh ngai, peaceful water with reasonable amount of fish but few corals are alive. a few caveats during our stay: for a couple of days there's a constant smoke coming from the wet tree branches and leaves piled close to the bungalows in the back, this was quite disturbing as we came all the way from beijing where the pollution is horrible, the staff reacted promptly to put out the under burn but thd is definitely something to watch out for if you're sensitive to smoke. dining is ok but not a huge variety and a little bit expensive for what you get (up to 200baht for a pad si jew). overall a good experience but there're rooms for improvements.
Beautiful bungalows in a stunning location”
We stayed in room 503 which I would recommend as you can see the ocean from your bed but it backs on to the jungle so you don't have people walking past all the time to get to the restaurant. Our room was also brand new and it was wonderful - everything was spotless and smelt wonderful. Breakfast was great but the menu is a bit limited for dinner. We walked past all the other hotels on this island and believe that the Thanya resort is definately the best! There is also a jungle hike you can do (not suitable for small children) where you can find a small beach for snorkelling (20 mins) or you can carry on to a fantastic view points (1 hour).
Loved it...Even in the Rain.”
Thanya Resort was beautiful. Individual bungalow style rooms set on their amazing beach. If you aren't ready to relax don't come, if you aren't ready to not have TV (golf Channel LOL) don't come--If you are ready for amazing staff with amazing food/drink, beautiful setting with the beach and jungle and relaxation rain or shine then stay at Thanya Resort. It was awesome.
Exceptional Staff... hard bed!”
Two couples stayed for 4 nights at the Ocean Front Villas. To be fair, we travelled to Ko Ngai on the first open week of the season. Most resorts were still closed. We were able to buy items (alcohol, snacks, mozzie spray, etc) at the shop at Fantasy Resort. Ko Ngai had about 6 occupied rooms so it was very quiet. PROS: beautiful! located right on the beach with a gorgeous hike up the back side to the other side of the island long tail boat available from hotel for day trips attentive staff (even gave me Tiger Balm to keep for my trip when I cut my foot on coral) pool (but there were no chairs or shade)- was also dirty sweet Thai dogs on property can arrange transport (we came from Phuket). Estt arranged for a pickup from our Phuket airport in a private van. We then had a private long tail boat to the resort. It was costly but VERY worth the hassle!!!!! CONS: bed is VERY uncomfortable because it is hard we ran out of water on our last day and nobody could shower or wash their hands! Waters and alcohol is expensive compared to the mainland (1.5 L water was 50 baht. Patong Beach: 13 baht) only one bar on the beach (quite far down): didn't allow for "chillin" with other travellers at night none of the books for loan are in English ;) Overall, we had a great experience except the bed! We would stay there again, but there are so many incredible islands that we probably won't. We took a day trip out for snorkelling!! Was awesome!!! Our boat driver called himself "Malaysia" and was amazing!!! We had beers on another island which was fun! We enjoyed our trip. Estt, the main receptionist, is awesome!! He does everything he can to accommodate you and it is important to mention his name! The ladies in the restaurant were also exceptional. The staff really made our trip worth it. Thank you to all of them.
Thanya resort is fantastic! ”
We are so happy that we stayed at Thanya. There is something peaceful about that place, and we loved that it had a location at the end of the beach, this made it more relaxing. Our bungalow was great and the food was good! I took massages every day and I was so relaxed. The hotel staff was very service minded and helped us with everything that we needed. I have been to Thailand many times, but it was the first time for my partner, and we could not have chosen a better island and hotel for our romantic trip. Thank you Thanya! /Sara and Fredrik
