We stayed here in Feb. 2018 for 4 nights but wish we could have stayed a little longer. The bungalows are cute as can be and very comfortable. It was so nice to be barefoot for all the time we were there. Soft sand from beach to all of the buildings. The views are spectacular and there are great outer islands to explore. Wonderful snorkeling at Ngai and the other spots including Koh Mook and Koh Wen. The food and drinks were great. Jay, the Head of Reception (I think) was just lovely. All of the staff were so much fun to converse with and the service was top notch. We hope to return next year
Great relax place ever”
Hotel location is super private. It is suitable for take a time to relax and enjoy smooth life here. Staffs are very friendly. Breakfast is very nice many choices to choose. The hotel is very nice, it is decorated with the Bangalo style. I love it and would like to come back again.
Good location ”
Koh Ngai is still have nature. Look like private beach . All staff have service mind and food is delicious , not too expensive . Clearn room. However, Beach still have many stone . Please be careful when you swimming . Overall is very good place . Recommend to come and stay here.
Lovely bungalows and nice people”
For people who like to read books and rest in a deckchair I recommend Ko Ngai and specially Thapwarin resort. For those who want a super beach and swimmining around I recommend the island Koh Muk instead.
Impossible to swim due to coral bottom; bathrooms need modernization, expected more for the money paid. lacked sufficient number of flat beds on beach front, price high in restaurant.
A must do!”
If you're thinking of going down to Koh Lipe, you should make a stop past Thapwarin on Koh Ngai! If you're not into crowds, loud music and being harassed to buy trinkets or even massages then this place is for you. Staff were amazing, restaurant serves quality food and the view is to die for. This being our 2nd time to Thailand island hopping so we probably won't be back this way again too soon but it was by far our favorite out of every resort we've stayed at from Koh Lanta, Koh Ngai, Koh Mook (Koh Muk), Koh Kradan and Koh Lipe. Highly recommended!
Island Paradise (but it will cost you)”
Koh Ngai was beautiful and relaxing. The resort staff were attentive. The food was good but expensive. There are a few standalone restaurants down the beach where you will pay half for a pad Thai and 30 baht less for a beer. But given the remoteness and peace and quiet it was worth every penny. We stayed in a Warin cottage for 3 nights and loved it.
Great beachfront bungalow”
Ko Ngai is still a nice remote island in Trang area! The Thapwarin is in our opinion the best choice on the whole island! It is located nearlly at the end of the beach, far away from the busy areas. We stayed for 3 nights in a beachfront bungalow which is really great!! If you go there, this is the only choice! You have really seaview of your bed and you have your own sunbeds on your private terrace outside. Breakfast is great, food is great!
Fantastic 7 nights at Thapwarin”
We had faboulous 7 nights at Thapwarin Resort in a Garden Bungalow. We were already the 6th time in Thailand and this was one of our best weeks we had so far. The bungalow was spacious and clean, equipped with everything you'd need (moskito net, queen size bed, shower). But the highlight of Thapwarin is the restaurant in combination with the staff. Extraordinary friendly, very fast and attentive, very obliging and they never forgot something we ordered (forgetting is very common in Thailand but not here). In addition, the taste of the food was unique and need to be highlighted. We will see u again Thapwarin / Koh Ngai :-)
Quiet and peaceful stay”
Quiet and relaxing stay. Beds were quite hard. Don't book the ferry through the hotel as overpriced and wouldnt budge. Walk 100 metres down the beach and you can get the boat to Phuket for 1000 baht less. Outside shower was a nice novelty and use lots of mossie repellant around the spa area where there is a river/pond.
A very relaxing stay at a beautiful location.”
I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff greet you with a warm smile and friendly service. Lets get the negatives out the way. On the first night i was eaten alive by mosquitoes, the romm was thick with them, as soon as you turned the light off. The staff did sray in the morning and it was fine after that. Getting there is a bit of an adventure but i like that, so not a negative for me. The outdoor shower was not really my cup of tea, but i went with it as it was a bit novel (don't shower at night or the mosquitoes will suck you dry.. lol) Every thing else was just brilliant. The food was good. There are no cars or scooters on the island, infact, there is only about 6 hotels. I got there in the off season but the weather was great, the sea was postcard beautiful and right at your door step. I had great adventures, snorkelling, canoeing and tacking the somewhat strenuous walk over themountain, through the jungle to the other side of the island. But it is well worth it if you love peace and quite and just the sound of nature. Plenty of food from the 6 hotels and a few back packer places as well. In the on season, they have scuba diving, parasailing and all the other things you would expect. So, go here if you want a very romantic time with your partner and peace and quiet and a very relaxing time. Not a place for clubbers and thrill seekers. Plenty of beautiful corals and reefs to see off the island. And one last thing, iwent out for a snorkel before midnight just to see if anything was out there that i didn't see in the day but to may delight, as i swam, millions of tiny lights appeard in the water. It was a very magical moment and kept me amused for hours. I think there is some kind of plankten in the water and when they are disturbed, they light up like a million tiny water fairies...The kid in me just came pouring out...lol. So, go, if it's your thing , you will love it.
What a lovely place to stay!”
, Freindly staff (most of them don't speak Thai). , Nice food and drinks. , Quiet place for relaxing , Beautiful quiet beach in front of the resort. , The room is nicely decorated and comfortable. , There might be some problem for water resource at night.
excellent location / beachfront / private resort”
The resort is not that excellent but pretty good since it's located on the separated island so if u r looking for a well equipped resorts, this isn't not a place. We stayed in a cottage which is nice but the bad thing is that the bathroom is outside. The location is just speechless...truly a getaway place!
Perfect getaway under the sun”
We traveld with our 10 month old daughter in oktober 2013. As it was the end of rainy season we got a great price for our room. Great pickup at the airport,first minibus, then longtail boat. From the moment we sat our feet on the Beach we felt very welcome. The staff was so friendly and our daughter loved them from the begining. They often walked around with her on their arms and she was just smileing and having a blast. The room was located right on the Beach, there where a good air-con, big bed, baby-cut, beautifull but not very varm shower/bathroom, nice balcony with sun chairs and a great view. The staff at the restaurant were also very friendly and helpful. The food was good ( we mostly had the thai dishes) and so was the drinks. Some of the dishes were sold out, but that is what you can espect, when you are staying on such a small Island. The resort arranged a snorkeling trip for us and while we were snorkeling, the staff were babysitting our Little girl - what a great service! If you want a quiet, beautifull and relaxing stay you shuld go there, we could absolutely recomend this resort. If you are looking for great snorkeling, big parties, many restaurants and shops, then pick an other place. We have traveld a lot, and this is one of the best places we have been to, so we really hope to come back!
Lovely hotel, excellent location and service”
Excellent service I never had! Very friendly and help me a lot of things when I had difficult problem about my trip during when I stay. Food at the restaurant is the best in the beach. Seafood grills are the best. Beachfront is crystal clear, private and romance if you are looking for. Excellent value the money you paid. I am very impressed the employees of the hotel. Knowdelable, friendly and helpful. Thapwarin will be my destination again when I am back to Thailand.
Lovely hotel, incedibly beautiful view”
the hotel staff is very nice, they take care of minimum details, decoration of dishes and drinks, when cleaning rooms, everything. dinner is a little bit more expensive than other hotels, but the price is already inclusive of vat, what does not happen in all the hotels. i have visited others during my stay, thapwarin beach can only be enjoyed in the morning, while in others you can use it all day, but still, based on price and what you get, thapwarin is a great deal. they can offer discount at transfer prices if necessary, just talk to the manager in charge.
Best Value for money on the island”
We did a lot of research on the accomodation in Koh Ngai - it was definitely worth it. The island is very heterogeneous in terms of hotel prices, Thapwarin is definitely the best. Bungalows are smal but very nice with outdoor bathrooms. The beach is great, staff is friendly. Only negative thing, restaurant is too expensive.
Tranquil, nice and beautiful”
at thapwarin i stayed for 9 nights, alone, since i needed time off from work, project, country i currently stay in and more. i chose this place due to the fact, that there are no roads, cars, motorcycles, disco's or similar on koh ngai - and it suited me perfectly. i have no doubt that i would like to return again one day, but then it will be along with my girlfriend. still, the stay did to me exactly what was the intention to begin with... i stressed down and re-energised again. lovely, beautiful and tranquil place.
Beautiful calm island and perfect situated resort”
The tapwarin resort was perfectly located right on The Beach. We stayed in a hut in The 2 nd row and it was basic but very authentic and had mosquitonet and af Nice shower wich was partly out in The open. The restaurant was good and there where great details like a fountane with fish, terrasse with pillows, fireshow in the evening and so on
Best on the beach”
lovely staff, the food's better at coco cottages next door but the rooms and general layout/ambience are great at thapwarin. having walked the beach it seems the best location of the 15-odd hotels, being a bit more secluded than most. would definitely stay again (in fact have been there twice already). super for kids too!
