We booked this room for our stay extending over the full moon party in Koh Phangan. We booked it through Expedia a day or so before our intended stay. With a few options available this seemed a little far from the party, but it seemed very nice online.

We took a songthaew to the hotel and had to hike up a long, very steep driveway. We now know that if you call a day ahead, they will meet you down at the docks!

We checked in at a small desk on the right and then over a welcome drink they go over the hotel and what they have available. Very nice and helpful people there.

They have a beautiful lounge that is open till 10pm. They play some great laid back music and sometimes a movie or two. You can get drinks and food out there. The best is relaxing on the Thai Pillow Chairs looking out to the sea and Koh Samui. The front windows open up and exposes the entire front wall to an amazing view.

We had the end room on the ground level. It was a great room. Only one bed, but they brought a cot in. One side of the room opens like the lounge to a great balcony and view. LCD tv with cable tv and a stereo. We had a small kitchen area and a nice bathroom. The entire hotel has wi-fi everywhere. Their connections are very good and free of charge.

They just opened last March and only have like 15 rooms. So book it online! They're in the middle of adding more rooms in a separate building and are very considerate with construction noise.

It's a little further away from the port and other partying, but it stays nice and quiet here.

I highly recommend this hotel if you're on Koh Phangan!

If Steven is there (one of the guys that check you in and helps with everything), say hello for me. Is his foot better? ;n)
