Pocket Guide: Ko Pha-ngan
Hotels in Koh Phangan range from simple to luxurious and cater for every kind of visitor. Whether you’re seeking a five star luxury hotel, a family-friendly resort, or a selection of budget options as you explore the island, Koh Phangan has a broad variety of accommodation to choose from. And with the island offering multiple white sand beaches, mountains, waterfalls and dive sites, there’s a reason to visit all year round.
What Areas Are Nice to Stay in When Visiting Koh Phangan?
Located on the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Phangan is part of the Samui Archipelago and is famous for its monthly full moon party, which takes place on Haad Rin Nok beach in the heart of the island’s booming nightlife zone. For a back-to-nature experience, the east coast is considered the island’s most untouched, with jungle forests, mountains and secluded coves in abundance. The northern coastline is dotted with fishing villages and popular day-trip locations like Bottle Beach, and on the west coast you’ll find quiet resorts in tucked-away locations, along with more developed spots like Haad Yao which boasts a varied range of bars, restaurants and hotels.
When it comes to activities, you certainly won’t be bored. Take a boat trip and explore the coastline, or head out to Ang Thong National Marine Park for a spot of snorkelling. Keen divers can discover marine life at well-known dive sites like Sail Rock or off the coast of Koh Ma, a small islet connected to Koh Phangan by a sandbar. Or go for a hike and get up close and personal with the island’s rainforest – numerous hilly trails offer tremendous vistas over turquoise bays and rocky outcrops. If you’re feeling really adventurous, take the challenging trek to Khao Ra, the highest point on the island, for spectacular 360 degree views.
Relaxation and Romance
Koh Phangan offers plenty of relaxation opportunities too. Try a Thai massage, an outdoor herbal bath or some time in a tropical steam cave at one of the island’s spa hotels. Or book a stay in a romantic hotel with your significant other, and do nothing but laze by the pool and watch the sunsets fade into night. Browse Expedia’s range of Koh Phangan hotels to see which one takes your fancy.
Explore the Local Shopping Scene
No trip to Koh Phangan would be complete without a visit to the Walking Street Market, held every Saturday afternoon in the main town of Thong Sala. You’ll find stalls selling delicious south Thailand delicacies lining the main street, along with colourful fabrics, crafts and other unique merchandise for sale.
Whether you’re after a family-friendly hotel near the beach, a budget hostel or a luxury spa with world-class views, Koh Phangan’s range of accommodation has you covered.
