"Loved having two pools, we especially enjoyed the one surrounded by sand with the swim up bar and music."

Better than we expected!”
I’ve stayed around Koh Pha-ngan lots of times, mainly Haad Salad and Haad Thien but I have looked at hotels and bungalows across the East coast also. Maehaad Bay Resort was exceptional. We stayed a total of 9 nights. Staff are beautiful, the rooms are comfortable and luxurious for the price we paid. (Great deals online via Agoda) other sites and at the hotel is much more expensive. It’s worth paying extra getting a deluxe room for something special (was our honeymoon) but then we moved to a cheaper standard room which is in a different building. Less fancy but really comfortable, private and clean. Breakfast is a quality buffet with a huge variety. It is a massive hotel. Two pools. It’s not a small little villa and because of that it’s less intimate but it has been perfect for us! Maehaad is s beautiful area. Lots to explore and easy access to greats eats and wonderful waterfalls as hikes. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend!
Wonderful secluded place!”
We had a wonderful stay at the Maehaad Bay Resort during the Full Moon Party. It is 45 minutes away from the party location and exactly what we wanted (For 300 Baht per person they organize a driver to the party location). The resort is simply beautiful with a massive pool in the middle. The rooms (and bathrooms) were surprisingly large with each also having its own private terrace. The resort is directly at the beach in a very quiet area. There are also other food outlets next to the resort but all in all this seems to be one of the most secluded areas on Koh Phangan. I would definitely recommend staying. It was great value for price!
Peaceful stay with a fantastic pool”
I enjoyed my stay here. A bit far from the action on a quiet beach. Beach directly out front isn't that great, but a 2 minute walk to the Maehaad Bay. The view from the room isn't amazing, but the rooms are huge and well appointed. I was upgraded on arrival to a suite, so it was a good start. Hotel is relatively new. Good service at reception. Lady at breakfast was a bit stand-offish and not very friendly, but generally smiles and good service everywhere else. Had lunch/dinner there once or twice and the food was generally good. The main beach is big and has some nice snorkeling, and there is a little island you can walk to during low tide (though I never did). But definitely not a party beach. Nothing happens here at night. Rent a scooter from the place outside and go Chaloklum for seafood grills and nightlife. About 15 minutes away. Haad Salad and Haad Yao are also easily accessible by scooter. In fact there is a main trunk road connecting Chaloklum and Tong Sala, so there is good connectivity to the main part of the island , though it takes time to get there obviously.
Excellent hotel - great rooms and friendly staff”
This was our second stay at the Maehaad Bay Resort this year and it was a great break. The hotel rooms are very good with everything that you need. The restaurant serves tasty food at a reasonable price for a hotel of this quality. The pool is the focal point of the hotel and is well maintained. Just yards/meters from Koh Ma - excellent snorkeling. A great place to unwind, relax and to enjoy the breeze. We have already booked next year's break
quiet, scenic corner of Koh Phangan”
Lovely hotel, room and bathroom were excellent. Pool is absolutely massive with a very nice surrounding area and sun deck. Maehaad bay is very nice beach and has good coral just off beach but is a quiet area of phangan. Reception can organize trips and taxis, provided transport in thier airconed mini buses to full moon party for small fee, made our own way back which was not difficult. really nice relaxing area of phangan.
Best hotel experience at Koh Phangan! ”
This is our best experience in Thailand during our 3 weeks here! The staff is fantastic and unbelievable friendly! A hide away from the Haad Rin area. 100m from the hotel you have Koh Maa and a fantastic beach, another small resort next door with great thaifood! We had a deluxe room which were very spacious with a big terrace, the only thing is that you don't have a toiletdoor, just wardrobes doors and a half glass door, but what the hell for us was no problem. We came from the Thongsala area and asked the hotel if they could pick us up, and they did, for free! Well cleaned, well maintained, good restaurant(not fantastic) but a great bartender(Tuk-Tuk) who made the best Long Island and Margerita we tasted in Koh Phangan!
Friendly and Beautiful ”
Maehaad Bay Resort is beautiful and right on the beach. I came with a friend and we both enjoyed it. We also happened to be there while caught in the cyclone— one that hasn’t hit since 1962 so we were a bit scared. But the hotel took care of us during that time of uncertainty and maintained all its facilities even during a cyclone. We felt so safe and happy. Would recommend!!
Fabulous holiday at Maehaad Bay”
Longing for a laid-back relaxing beach holiday, Maehaad Bay offered us exactly what we had hoped for and we're very happy about it. After coming back from a long day out exploring the island, dipping into the swimming pool was a bliss! Our room featuring spacious bathtub and balcony are well appointed and kept clean, staff always pleasant. Just loved their discreet way of services. There's a mini-mart run by an honest couple just in front of the hotel (Nawin Minimart) offering various conveniences to hotel guests where laundries can be nicely done at THB40/kg. Hotel's restaurant was fine, we wanted a little more spiciness though. Only downside was sporadic Wi-Fi connection. All in all, highly recommended!
Very nice surprise! ”
We booked this hotel not knowing what to expect. It’s hard when you’ve never been to Koh Phangan to know where to stay. We were nicely upgraded to a superior room with a view of the whole resort, pool and the sea. The rooms are new, big and elegant. The staff are super friendly and the smiles at the reception make you always feel welcome! The breakfast was ok, you get all you need just that there was a lot of guests and sometimes the personnel are overwhelmed. One of the few things that needs improving is the cleanliness of room service.. our shower and bathroom floor was not cleaned for at least 4 days till we mentioned. All in all a perfect hotel to relax, get your value for money and the location is just perfect if you are looking for peace and quality holiday. We rented a scooter and were able to drive around, the roads are mostly new made and the traffic is low in comparison to Koh Samui. Will be coming back in the future!
The hotel not only met our expectations, it exceeded our expectations. This hotel is world class and not the usual facility found on Koh Phangan. The hotel is on par with the 5* resorts located on the North East of the island. Promotional pictures used for marketing do not do the hotel justice. This hotel will be our one and only choice when we return to Koh Phangan. Well done to the stall and management.
Excellent stay-put resort”
This is our second annual week-long stay at Maehaad. We would happily return next year. The room quality is 4-star; very comfortable. We stay in the "ordinary" rooms, and find them excellent. Not inexpensive, but fully worth it. Enjoy the balcony a lot. Lots of international channel TV. Breakfasts were excellent; a pleasure. Staff were all attentive and pleasant. We are older, read a lot, swim a lot in the wonderful long pool. No need to go off-campus to find entertainment. The next-door "backpacker" resort has excellent food in their restaurant on the beach, with good swimming in the ocean. A mini-market across the street from the hotel's office has snacks and Internet. There were lots of family groups (the hotel was pretty much full; July 2014). Pool is so big that we never felt invaded by the children. We were present during the "full moon" thing, but the younger people never forced that issue on us: we noticed no extra noise or commotion. Live and let live really can happen.
A wonderful resort with very nice staff. ”
We had a great stay at Maehaad Bay Resort. It is a relatively new resort and is very beautiful. It's a little away from shops and restaurants but easy to get around by taxi or motorbikes. If you want a wonderful relaxing holiday, this is the place to stay.
This place was absolutely brilliant! The destination is amazing and the pictures don’t do it justice! The beach is amazing and you can snorkel in the sea with beautiful fish! The rooms are also lovely, we stayed in a Deluxe Double and the room was clean, so spacious and the bathroom was brilliant! My boyfriend got ill while we stayed and the staff were amazing and did everything possible to help! The staff at the resort as a whole were so genuine, polite and helpful! The restaurant food was lovely and also not too pricey either! 100% would recommend and I would stay here again in a heartbeat, I was so sad to leave Koh Phangan because of this place!
Lovely staff and great pool”
We stayed at the resort for 6 nights. The resort pool was lovely and along with the friendly staff, the best assets of the resort. The common areas could do with some maintenance, though mainly cosmetic. The biggest disappointment was that the bar used very cheap/nasty spirits and I suspect were filling main brand bottles with cheap equivalents. This seems to be the normal on Koh Phangan as I experienced it at all the bars along the beach at neighboring resorts, though have not experienced it in Koh Samui or Phuket before at resorts. Me and my friends decided to buy bottles of spirits from the store across the street and only order mixers at the bars to avoid serious hangovers from the cheap spirits. This was a disappointment. The Restaurant Manager was amazing and helped arrange a lunch for 40 of us, on the same day we advised. This was greatly appreciated. Overall a great experience, though bring your own spirits.
Great Resort, Great Pool”
We have returned for the 3rd time to this great Resort for the following reasons: Big nice wonderful clean rooms which you will like as single, double, os we with 2 kids, 7 and 2 y ; Special the big bathroom withb jaccucy and separate shower is wonderfull; A Phantastic big pool, ( 50 m in the side facing to the open shore and the MaeHaad Iland; Very clean water and well mainteaned all the time; I would lake an additional stainless bar between kids pool and the deep side; All rooms and villas have nice view to the pool and partly also to the sea; Pool and garden are very well maintained and big enough to serve all guests even in high season; The shore facing restaurant is servicing delicate food in a middle price range; As I mentioned we were there in low season, so breakfast which were included in the roo rate, were served a"la card, but additions were available at no extra charge; We were there3 in low season, quiet relxing place, but Chalokloom with excellent seafood restaurants not to faar; My wife and kids asked already when we will be back there ! ( We travell already 10 years for holidays on different beach- locations in Thailand )
Amazing hotel and staff”
What an amazing stay.. Great facilities and such amazing staff.. we stayed 7 nights and then moved to a resort in Haad Rin and it does not compare to the quality and enjoyment of Maehaad. Would 100% recommend and will return again...
We stayed here for a friends wedding. The resort is nearly a half hour from the pier where you arrive in koh phangnan, but we liked being away from the main areas. It's very relaxing at maehaad bay, scooters and kayaks are easily hired right outside the hotel, and the bay is a beautiful place to explore and swim. A short walk around the beach and you'll find cheap massages ( mumma's massages is great), and more eating options cheaper then the resort. The pool is lovely but there is no swim up pool bar and we got the feeling the staff weren't used to dealing with people that enjoyed a drink as service was very slow. Breakfast is fine- nothing amazing but it does the job. All in all I would return to the maehaad bay resort, but would also consider cheaper beachside accommodation as well for a different experience
Overall good quality hotel, but not perfect”
Pros: Haad Mae Haad reachable per feet Extraordinary (!) sunsets on the beach Taxi Boat directly available at the beach Rooms (new part of the hotel) awesome Very good restaurants around (I recommend Sunshine Restaurant) Bike renting supereasy Cons: Breakfast not optimal, cleanliness and options of food are problematic, too few places to sit down - this needs to be improved for a 4 star hotel. Relatively difficult communication with the staff due to bad english. Sometimes no warm shower water Construction works in progress in the new part of the hotel ————- All in all a very nice stay, but improvable. What it makes exceptional is the enclosed koh ma beach, which is a lovely place with options to drive to different beaches with the taxiboat. Sometimes quite crowded, but bar options are there to sit and watch the sunset. We loved the island. People are very nice and warm, very welcoming and flexible. Reception is always there to help out, no matter of the language.
Lovely peaceful place”
Lovely place: very high-quality room (4-star, for sure), nice staff, wonderful huge pool, useful mini-market across the street, excellent breakfast, good beachfront restaurant in 2-star hotel next to Maehaad resort. Perfect stay-at-home place for relaxation.
We stayed already for the second time in this resort and in the Garden Villa and we were very happy, once again. Clean and spacious room(s). Very helpful staff. Very good breakfasts. We did not use the pool(despite the fact it's nice and spacious) because the resort is located right next to the sea and lovely Maehaad Beach near Ko Ma island. See you soon again!;)
