Wonderful position right facing the beach and sea. The rooms would have been beautiful a couple of years ago and still could be, in need of a little thought, tender loving care and attention to detail. Fans so noisy, air conditioning not working properly in need of attention. Curtains had seen better days and were ready to be replaced.

We found this hidden gem after a recommendation from a local. Staff here were a husband and wife, very friendly and nice to us. Room was large and spacious. There was a small pool and a view of the beach which had a little sand to make your own private beach.

This is our second stay at this hotel which our party took over booking all the rooms. We stayed in one of the front rooms which has a wonderful view across the bay. Beds are very comfortable and the small pool in the centre of the courtyard is very nice. It would be good to have a few sunbeds and...

We had one night in Koh Phangan and wanted something a bit nicer than usual, and we found this place, very clean and modern, with a Spa in the bedroom, epic and perfect for us with a good price also. Just down the road we also found the best pizza place ever. We will definitely be returning to this hotel,...

The very helpful director welcomed us one day in advance (we messed up with the dates) and managed to find us a very nice room. We spent 4 nights in the very downtown of fishermen's village of Chaloklum, which was a good choice to stay in Ko Phangan : far from Fullmoon Parties crowd, but with a lively local life.

Far away from the overrated full moon parties at Haadrin and Thongsala lies Chaloklum Village. The fishing port, beach, and town are set in a deep, lush, and protected North facing bay. The town itself is composed of a 1 kilometer strip of low-level traditional Thai shop houses, small restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops that line Chaloklum Bay. Just as...

We booked 12 nights through Agoda who led us to believe that this was a fabulous luxury hotel going for an amazing bargain price - from 250 us dollars to 38 per night !! We were bitterly disappointed to discover a pretty but smallish room with no balcony, although advertised as a suite didn t even have a small table...

Don't expect a four star hotel with all luxurious facilities. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful environment you are definitely in the right place. Grate location with opportunities in overflow to visit the most lovely and not crowded beaches by boat. Just a few steps outside the hotel you are in a very small authentic village and...

We' ve staied recently three nights in this hotel. Size of the property enables a familiar athmosphere, which we greatly appreciated. The hotel manager is a great help in booking some trips, organising taxi service etc. The rooms are big, the suites have even a whirlpool. Pool and beach access provided. You have to be aware of the fishermens' village...
