More about Salad Beach

More about Salad Beach

Located on the secluded Salad Beach, this namesake resort promises a quiet and relaxing holiday. When in Koh Phangan, dive trips and snorkeling are a must in the clear water. The resort can help arrange these trips as well as fishing and kayaking near the resort. And with bike and jeep rentals available on-site, it is just as easy to explore the island. The island is popular for its Full Moon parties which should definitely not be missed. The beachfront Salad Beach provides value-for-money accommodation on the extremely popular Koh Phangan.

Beautiful beach resort...”

Quiet location, lovely beach.
none

We stayed at Salad Beach for 5 nights over new years. Staff were really friendly and our room was lovely, overlooking the sea and swimming pool! Salad Beach is in northern Koh Phangan, so it is quite quiet....there arent many bars near by althought the Reggae Bar was good, 2 mins walk from hotel. Its perfect if you want a relaxing break. The Beach was beautiful....the hotel is right on the beach so every morning that is where breakfast was served. We went to the Full moon, it is about 40 min drive, so not that close but as we went over New Years the hotel provided a shuttle service for 300 baht each for a return which was a really good deal! We would definately recommend this hotel. Excellent stay!

Located on one of Koh Phangnan's best beaches”

Incredibly friendly staff and beautiful pool

We had a lovely three night stay at Salad Beach Resort to attend a full moon party. It is located on the other side of the island to Haad Rin beach where the full moon parties are held but the hotel will organise cheap transfers to and from for you. Please note that it is about a 40 min drive, however for the peace, quiet and relaxation it is well worth the trip. The restaurant is fantastic and the staff make customised pancakes at the buffet breakfast e.g. elephants, bunnies, crabs etc! While the room decor is less fancy than other Thailand hotels, the lovely pool, well priced massages and very friendly staff all added to a great stay. I would definitely stay here again. One other tip: If traveling to or from Koh Phangnan in the 3 days before and after a full moon party, make sure to book your ferry tickets in advance as they book out quickly.

Excellent resort for the price”

Good rates, secluded beach

We went to Koh Phangan for the Full Moon Party but didn't want to stay in the craziness of Haad Rin. We made an excellent choice with the Salad Beach Resort. Haad Salad is a cozy little cove with a nice beach and calm waters. The hotel provided taxi service to and from the Full Moon Party (400 baht roundtrip). We stayed in a Superior Building room. If we go back to this resort (and we definitely would), we would book one of the cabanas in the garden - they were only $10-15 more than the room we booked. The pool was very nice. The restaurant was sufficient - good food at good prices. Service was also fine, not great, but ok for the price we paid to stay here.

Amazing staff! Wonderful stay!”

Amazing helpful staff. Great beach. Nice hotel.

We loved our stay there. We are at koh Tao right now and missing out time at salad beach resort. The staff were so helpful when we were probably their pay annoying customers. We were so needy haha and I kept on locking ourselves out of our room and safe. They also helped us reheat the food we cooked on our cooking class and presented then on their nice restaurant bowls and plates. They did everything with a smile. Salad beach... The beach is the most beautiful on this northern side of the island. More than cholaklum, haad yao, etc. One negative I would say is that I didn't see a whole lot of street food vendors... So if you're looking for cheap cheap food you'll have to bike it down to thong sala

Absolutely fantastic - can't beat this!”

Best area of the island at unbelievable value!

The Salad Beach Resort is as good as it looks in the photos! A selection of standard rooms, superior and bungalows. We opted for a superior room overlooking the gardens and were not disappointed. Very tranquil and clean and comfortable as you'd expect. Rooms have all the facilities you'd imagine - AC, fan, good TV and a safe. Resort is exceptional, lots of staff constantly making sure everything is just as you'd like it. Very nice gardens and pool with the restaurant and beach beyond. You can hire kayaks and snorkelling gear for good prices to go and explore the area, Hat Salad is the best bay that we visited-beach is fantastic. Breakfast included which was excellent, buffet style with eggs of your choice made for you, along with bacon, other meats, tempura, toast, cereals, fruit etc etc. Also, if you're travelling with children they will make pancakes for you in the shape of your favourite animal, very skilful and a nice touch! The restaurant is great for dinner too, tables on the beach and on the decking over looking the beach and very high quality food. We had some of the best food on our trip here. Overall, I really can't fault the resort at all, and if you can get a good rate (around 1000 Bhat), then even better!

Right on one of the best beaches on Koh Phangan

We loved it so much that we ended up booking an extra 2 weeks and spending our whole trip there. The staff were lovely and extremely helpful. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable and the facilies were brilliant. It was directly on Haad Salad which is one of the best and most beautiful beaches on Koh Phangan. We will definitely return!

Salad Beach Resort is a great place to stay! ”

Beach access, restaurant with a view, secluded and beautiful location

Staying at the Salad Beach Resort was one of the highlights of our trip to Thailand. My husband and I enjoyed this resort thoroughly - the beach is amazing, the food is great, the staff at this resort are helpful and friendly, and it's great value for money. We were upgraded to a nice, big room right in front of the pool at check-in. The room was large and spacious and it felt quite homely. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful folks and quite fluent in English. The shop right opposite the hotel is also well-equipped. Although Salad Beach is a bit away from the main Koh Phangan hustle and bustle, it's perfect if you want to take some time off and relax at this resort/beach because even though we hired a scootie and went South, we didn't really feel like leaving Salad Beach at all.

Great Location.”

Stunning location, pool and comfortable spacious rooms.

It is the second time we have stayed at the Salad Beach Resort. We love the fact that the hotel is right in the middle Haad Salad. The staff were always willing to please and very pleasant. The resort is situated right near the top of the island but still very easy to explore the island from there on a rented bike or however you choose. They have a great pool situated in a beautiful tropical garden. Dinner is served right outside the diningroom and on the beach every night while watching the beautiful sunsets from there.We will be back soon!.

Quiet place with nice rooms and service. The beach was beautiful and good for swimming. The staff was very friendly which made our staying even better. The food at the restaurant was good, but when it gets too busy the dishes take a long time to be served. Haad Salad is the most beautiful beach to stay in Koh Phangan.

Friendly hotel with excellent staff”

Great staff, very clean good sized rooms, lovely pool

I can't think of a bad thing to say about my stay here. The hotel is very reasonably priced offering large rooms in the superior building (the chalets looked enormous but I didn't stay here, and felt the superior building offered more privacy). Great free wifi, good food at a reasonable price in the beach view restaurant. The swimming pool was clean and a good size in a well planted garden giving lots of shade. Very nice to have friendly, professional staff who were great with my young son. Salad beach is pretty and shallow for young children. Some snorkelling a fair swim off shore, but sadly some coral loss through bleaching (a sad affair affecting all the coral around here and on neighbouring Ko Tao)- there is better snorkelling on the next beach north, but I'd stay here and get a taxi there!

A nice stay at Salad ”

Tuna steak, nice surroundings and a quite beach

We enjoyed my stay at Salad. We did not have a very nice room at the beginning but they changed it promptly when requested. Our new room had a nice way to the garden, it was clean and spacious. We and our friends rented a bike and we had no issues when returning it (which is quite rare in Thailand since people want to trick you and charge you for scratches that you did not make). Definitely try tuna steak, I have never ever had a better steak in my life. You will get a salad for free with it, so it a good deal. Please bear in mind that the beach has very shallow water which is good for children but if you are after swimming than you should rather go somewhere else. I can highly recommend this hotel for people who are looking for a quite place to stay.

Alright week”

Location, Staff, Air conditioner (really was not too cold, not to hot)

Although our stay at Salad Beach Resort was nice, I still have a few complaints. One, when I decided to stay for an extra few days and pay directly the front desk staff blatently lied to me and said that the deal on agoda was gone. This was not true and I had to argue with her about the price. Second, the bacon in the breakfast buffet needs to be cooked. I know that not everybody likes crispy bacon but this is Thailand, please cook the bacon more. My wife and I got food poisoning and the only things we both ate were ice cream, bacon, and coconuts. Not 100% sure which one of these caused our issue, but one of them did. Third, two years ago this hotel was worth every penny you have to pay, but it has gone a little into disarray. Until they actually do some upkeep and repairs they cannot keep charging the price they do. Painting, leveling out the walkway, new showerheads in the bathroom, etc. For what is offered a $30 a night charge seems more reasonable in Thailand.

Sea is very warm and less wave so we will feel like we have a sea swimmimg pull surrounded by a beautiful mountain view This hotel is also located very close to Koh Ma, a narrow beach connecting between Phangan Is mainland and a tiny Koh Ma. Totally, this place is good for us who went Phangan for a fullmoon party perfect amenities with very kind staff.

Review of Salad Beach Resort NYE 2010”

We stayed in the bungalows for a night but had previously stayed in the hotel during a different trip. The room was spacious and the pools were excellent and clean. The place is always well kept and has a tropical and friendly atmosphere. I have also heard the onsite pedicures and manicures are great and well priced considering you can opt to have the service done in your air conditioned room.
Last time we stayed there was a really good breakfast and a good selection of complementary toiletries, There has been a management change and the seem to have cut back a bit on these luxuries. This was not really a big deal as the breakfast was still passable, but if you wanted a really good feed you could go next door and get something really tasty for 120baht. There were a lot of Mosquitos, so if you are one of those people that get bitten a lot I suggest you bring repellent from your home country because the stuff they sell at salad beach is really weak and ineffective (I learnt this the hard way)

This is an excellent hotel for the price.The place was always clean and offerred immaculate service. In fact, we had frinds who were staying at the other end of the beach in a 5 star hotel and they said that they would prefer to stay at the Salad Beach Resort because of the size of the rooms and the friendly staff. I personally don't think you can go past salad beach for it's chilled out atmosphere and great food. This is one of the best value hotels we have stayed in and we are regular southern Thailand visiors.

Food, pool, beach

We spent 3 nights at this hotel in a pool view bungalow having been upgraded from a garden view because of a problem with our room. The room we got was spacious with a huge comfortable bed and a balcony from which you could see the beach. It was clean but a little dated. The bathroom was also clean but poorly designed. Wifi worked ok in the room. The pool was also very clean and refreshing. The highlight of our stay here was the beachside restaurant which had wonderful staff and food. All the local dishes we tried were among the best we have tried on several trips to Koh Phangan. The prices for food and drink were also cheaper than similar standard hotels. We would return to this hotel without hesitation.
