          Nice place to chill”
          We spent 2 nights with our kids (13-11-10), we booked the beach front rooms (they have 2 available) with direct access to the beach. Small hotel with about 10 rooms which makes it a quiet place. No restaurant on the premises but enough available on the street! Also for breakfast. Rooms are clean and big. Only thing missing would be stairs to go to the beach direct from the front deck. We recommend this place!!

          Fascinating View and Peaceful Location”
          I'd called to request the sea view room on the second floor, the owner was helpful and his staffs were very nice, we felt very welcome 5 stars to staffs! We'd stayed here for 3 nights, the room we stayed was clean and bright, also offered a great view of Chalok Lam Beach and Pier. The beach was so good that you should go swimming, but if it's too hot, you could checkout their mini pool (in-room jacuzzi bathtub was nice too!). The location is quite peaceful, not so crowded. Even it's quite far from Thong Sala Pier (a 15 min driving) or Fullmoon Pary - Rin Beach (a 20 min driving) but it's okay for us because the road is easy and not so complicate (actually, the hardest driving part is near Rin Beach) For foodies, there are 'Ko-Rahum' and 'Three Sixty View Point' that is not far from the hotel (just a 4 min driving) to check in and snap some shots of wonderful views. Talk to the food, if this hotel can offer breakfast at hotel's seaside, it would be very perfect!

          New happy place!”
          This area became my new "happy place" in Thailand! Small, intimate, Thai fishing village with a slow pace. The Hotel obviously had new renovations, the paint and grout in the bathroom was fresh as was the whole room. Very clean, very friendly staff, incredible beach. One highlight was watching 4 young Thai girls do footraces down the beach, then watching young Thai boys diving off the pier. Very cool locals! The water has crystal clarity, and the sand is like fine flour. Very friendly at the restaurants, with incredible food. Will be back.

          They advertise a garden room on Agoda but there is no garden. They have one cheap room that opens out directly on to a main road and have the garbage piled up outside. They did give me a pool side room instead at no extra cost but I was expected to pay the higher cost if I wanted to stay on. The hotel is on the beach but getting to it involves climbing over trees and open drains. The room itself was very nice. Clean with pleasant decor.

          Nice boutique hotel for peaceful stay away from chaos”
          The boutique hotel is in Chalokrum, a fishing village. The taxi boat station to Bottle Beach is just 5 minutes walking. Accessible to number of seafood restaurant at beach side. The hotel is cozy with well maintained swimming pool and set up. The room is spacious with jacuzzi and comfortable. Staff are helpful and will try to answer your questions at their best effort. The only drawback is the toilet door is abit tear off and hard to close and the jacuzzi does not come with hot water.

          The only reason one goes to Koh Phanagan is the full moon party, so going by the rates on those nights and the facilities this is an ideal place. The only disadvantage is it's distance from Haad Rin beach. But they do provide you with a cab to and fro. Really helpful staff.

          The staff make this a gem! Shame we only got to stay 1 night as it is in a lovely setting with a nice stretch of beach (though please sort out the ladder down!!). My only reservation is the missed details for cleanliness eg hairs in bathroom, dust around tv...But for one night this is not an issue. A longer stay I would be bothered! The staff are super friendly and you have everything you need within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

          Ideal location for a quiet stay”
          This small boutique hotel is perfectly located in a quiet beach, with fishermen village. It's about 15 mn driving from the main pier Thong Sala. Not crowded at all, not that many tourists in this area, which is totally different from Had Rin where full moon party takes place. It's easy to go there though if you wish to enjoy dancing all night long ;-) The hotel itself is really nice, simple and contemporary, and the rooms facing the sea are amazing (only 4 rooms). No breakfast, but small restaurants are nearby with reasonable price, good quality and friendly people. It's our second time here : we came here 3 years ago, when the hotel just opened few months before. This time, we were a bit disappointed because there is a lack of maintenance and everything is becoming old so fast... If they don't pay attention to this situation and do everything needed to check and renovate, it might cause bad reputation for this place. It would be a pity, because it's really a lovely place and staff is friendly - but sometimes slow to respond... Anyhow, we still recommend this place. And we wish that they will take care of it.

          The hotel is currently in works they arr doing painting which leaves all rooms with very bad smell. Very unpleasant. However the hotel could be great as it is well locatif and small one could feel at home there. The pool is quite small and there is actually no garden . Hence no différence btw pool rooms and garden rooms.

          Great location, beautiful ocean views, cleanliness
          My partner and I had a fantastic mini break to Koh Phangan staying at this resort. We chose this resort as its in an area we love to visit in KP. The hotel itself was nestled quite nicely amongst the other decor of the little rustic fishing village. Inside the hotel was a large, clean pool with rooms set around it. Our room was on the beach front. We had ceiling to floor windows which meant we got a fantastic view of the sea from our bed every morning. The room was very large, with nice furnishings, a great bath tub/jacuzzi, and was very clean (always a must!). I would 100% recommend staying at this lovely boutique hotel. It's fantastic value for money.

          Location, standard, rooms
          This hotel is by far the best in this area. Really nice rooms with either pool or beach views. Huge bed, nice bathroom with PRESSURE in the shower! First time I came across this in Asia. Nice French owner which gives the place a western standard. Recommends a basic pool front room on the ground floor. You have the whole pool area as your terrace and the sea around the corner. Could be improved: * Some good and comfortable outdoor furniture outside the rooms. Like reclining chairs and maybe an umbrella. *Included breakfast *Safety box on the room.
