My last review of Rainbow was back in 2013 and the place is just as good as ever. If you are looking for a very chilled out piece of paradise, far enough away from the road to make it a very quiet place, with great people and excellent food, give this place a try. We spent 10 days of absolute...

Lovely little family run set of bungalows. Incredible location right on the beach front. You can walk almost a half mile out into the ocean before it gets deeper than 5 feet. The food, oh the food. It was INCREDIBLE! Everything we had was the best version of anything we tried the entire 2 weeks we were in Thailand, over...

Unfortunately we found that restaurant not earlier but on the last day of our 2 week long stay. The food tasted so delicous and - bearing in mind that Island-prices are of course a little bit higher - the prices were more than fair. They were very friendly and the english language skills are probably the best ones we met...

I stayed here for nearly a week with 6 friends, ages 25-31. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and the showers are some of the best we have had in 5 months in Asia. Zero complaints about the facilities, and I truly mean that. Aside from that, this property lacked any sort of charm and community. There was...

Thanks John for your review. Allow me to translate your alternative facts. Your six friends were actually two friends, which made a group of four including you and C, (unless you were travelling with clones which would then bring the total to eight.) Thank you for the details of your age, the relevance of which we are uncertain. We have...

We have just left Phangan Rainbow Bungalows after spending 4 nights here. We wished we had stayed longer. We arrived on the day alot of young people left following the full moon party. We are older so relished the quiet and peaceful stay we got. The family that own and run this place are so friendly and really make this...

Very nice bungalow resort right at a beautiful bay run by a cute and polite couple Noi and Martin. Noi cooks herself aided by her staff and there is really no need to go to another restaurant because the food is so good. Bungalows are simple style but comfortable and clean and a very nice atmospere in the whole resort....

Great bungalows. As a large group checked out the day we got there, the place was a little quiet so the staff upgraded us to the ocean view bungalows. Amazing family run business! Would absolutely stay here again. Quiet and relaxing.

The hosts, the location, the fellow guests, made my visit to Koh Phangan of the best vacations I have ever had. The bungalows are basic, beds, bathroom, cold water, fan, cool ocean breezes, shower, nice porch with a hammock--that's exactly what I wanted. The hosts were great Martin and Noy make you feel at home, just take something from the...

We were there for just three days, the view is so amazing, the beach is so soothing, clean and peaceful! The best part is you won't find it crowded at all, and to top things up Linda is an amazing cook. Martin is an Aussie so he speaks fluent English, he's really helpful as he can guide you with whatever...

originally stayed here for three nights during the full moon party (of course) and was seriously stunned at how nice of a place it was considering its run by just a family, the main man martin will gladly help you out with what he can and its also somewhat refreshing being able to have a solid conversation with someone who...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Phangan Rainbow Bungalows, located between Thongsala and Hadrin, just a stone's throw from Hadrin, but not too close! We have beautiful wood bungalows, well built to western standards. With a wonderful garden, on a quiet beach, it's chilled when you want it, and can be wild when you want it! We maintain top notch security, and work hard to provide our guests with a really friendly, family vibe. Excellent value for money - one of the cheapest bungalow operations actually situated right on the beach! Nearly everyone rates our efforts favorably. ... more   less
