Overview

The resort is situated on a secluded private cove in Baan Tai beach located on the southwest coast of Koh Phangan, next to an almost forgotten stretch of the most beautiful coastline the island has to offer. The "Phangan Beach Resort" will offer superb sunset views across to Koh Samui, the Angthong National Marine Park and out over the Gulf of Thailand. The resort is within easy reach of all the facilities that the island's vibrant southwest coast offers.
Baan Tai is a beautiful sleepy little fishing village conviently located between the island's two biggest towns of Thong Sala and Haad Rin. Situated just a 15 minute drive away is Koh Phangan's busiest and most popular beach Haad Rin, the location for the world famous "Full Moon Party" which regularly attracts over 10, 000 tourists each and every month.

Our restaurant specialises in thai and western cuisine ,right on the beach,so you can enjoy some of the most beautiful sunsets on the island

ACTIVITIES
Phangan island is famous for the Full Moon Party. Besides great parties, the island also offers plenty of fun activities such as:
Snorkeling
If you enjoy snorkeling Koh Phangan has some of the best spots in the south of Thailand. Just off the northwest coast you will find the little island of Koh Ma opposite Mae Haad beach. There you will find amazing coral and colorful fish of all shapes and sizes.

Diving
Ever try scuba diving? If not, then why not get your scuba diving certificate here on Koh Phangan. We can arrange diving for beginners as well as advanced divers. There are daily diving trips to reefs and other interesting dive sites around Koh Phangan. The professional instructors will make sure you'll have a fun and safe experience

Fishing
Fishing can be a fun and relaxing sport. We can arrange fishing trips around the island or you can purchase a rod and fish off the rocks on the coast. Many of the locals out there are happy to offer help and advice on the best bait to use. One of our favorite hobbies is squid fishing off the pier in Thong Sala. Squid are attracted to the sun sparkling on the water and bite best at sunrise and sunset. Come out and give it a try.

Wind Surfing
If the breeze picks up this is a great way to have some fun. There is a wind surfing center in Ban Tai that offers rentals and lessons for all skill levels.

Kite Surfing
Learn how to Kite surf with professional instructor at our shallow safe for learning beach at Phangan Beach Resort. We have the best wind all year around. Equipment are available for rentals. Please ask front desk for more information.

Boat Trips / Kayaking
We can arrange boat trips around the island or to the neighbouring islands. Kayaks can be rented on the beach.

Paintball
Have you ever dreamed of being Rambo or a military sniper from your favorite video game? Well here on Koh Phangan you can shoot your friends in the jungle at Phangan's first and only paintball range. The paintball arena is located at the Big Mango Restaurant just outside of Thong Sala. So grab your friends and head out for a day of fun and war.

Muay Thai Boxing
Koh Phangan has several Muay Thai stadiums around the island that hold fights throughout the month. Our favorite is Kobra Stadium in Ban Tai. Around the week of the full moon party you can watch boxers from all over Thailand compete in full contact matches. If you prefer a more hands on experience, Master Trainer Kob offers private Muay Thai lessons.

Elephant Trekking
One of the tourist favorites is elephant trekking. There are two locations on the island that offer 30 to 90 minute rides through the mountainous jungles of Koh Phangan. In addition to the rides you can feed, cuddle and take pictures with the elephants. Interacting with these magnificent creatures is an unforgettable experience.

Beach Volleyball / Beach Football
Every day as the heat of the sun starts to subside, volleyball and football matches begin on the beach. It's a good way to meet new friends and and keep your body in shape during your holiday.

Wakeboarding & Kite Boarding
Wakeboarding and kite boarding is offered by several companies on Koh Phangan. Both of these activities are done in the Chaloklum or Ban Tai area as not to damage the coral reef.

Thai Cooking Lessons
Thailand has some really delicious food. Why not try your hand at learning Thai cooking. Same-Same Restaurant has a Thai cooking school which is certified by the ministry of Education Thailand. They offer courses for 1, 3 or 5 days with an English speaking chef.

Yoga
Koh Phangan is also home to several yoga schools. You can relax and revitalize your body using this ancient Indian method of exercise. Depending on how much time you have and how serious you are you can go for a single lesson or stay for up to six months learning to be a yoga instructor.

Boat Cruises
We can arrange cruises around the island, to Angthong National Park or Koh Tao. The boats are fully equipped with snorkeling equipment, bar, toilet and buffet lunch on board. This is the great way to experience the island and beyond.

Jewelry Making and Design Class
Learn how to create your very own one of a kind silver jewelry at the "Workshop Silver" located in Thong Sala. Study the techniques of traditional jewelry making right here on Koh Phangan. This is a hands on class and the students' creations are theirs to take home.

ATV
One of the island's most recent arrivals has been the "4-wheeler" or "ATV". They are a fun and exciting way to see the island and navigate some of the sandy and bumpy roads. Many places around the island offer day or weekly rentals.

Mountain Biking
A great way to see the island and get some exercise during your vacation. Rentals are available in Thong Sala and other locations around the island for about 50 Baht a day. Some of the hills and trails can be a bit adventurous so be cautious and always wear a helmet.

Massage & Meditation
At most resorts and beaches you can get a traditional Thai or oil massage. Koh Phangan also has retreat centers offering various courses in Thai massage, meditation, chakra healing, Pilates, Reiki and reflexology.

Wat Pho Herbal Sauna
This traditional herbal steam sauna is run by the monks at the Wat Pho temple in Ban Thai (on the road to Thong Nai Pan). The sauna uses the traditional method of heating natural herbs and leaves on a log fire. Herbs such as lemongrass and tamarind have many health and skin benefits.

Kao Ra Viewpoint
Kao Ra is the highest mountain peak on Koh Phangan and offers the most spectacular view of the island. There is a long winding foot trail leading up to the scenic point from the village of Ban Madua Wan. The trail can be steep in places so make sure to be cautious and wear good hiking shoes. Bring plenty of water and you may also want to bring along your bug spray. There is a guide service available at Phaeng Waterfall for about 500 Baht.

Domsila Viewpoint
This viewpoint is located on the trail from Phaeng Waterfall to Domsila. The trail begins at Phaeng Noi waterfall and continues down the stream. One of the most beautiful areas is Tan Gluai. Here you will find beautiful orchids, birds and other native jungle wildlife. If you are looking for the perfect "romantic" spot you can stay and watch a wonderful sunset. Just remember to bring a flashlight for the walk back after dark.

Chinese Temple
This Chinese style temple is found on the North-West of Koh Phangan island and has a short but interesting history. The woman responsible for building the temple is said to have had a dream in which the (Chinese) Buddha spoke to her and asked her to build a fire light for the people. When she awoke she began planning and working on the temple. It was completed in 1990 and is considered a place of luck.

Wat Phu Khao Noi
Koh Phangan has many temples. Wat Phu Khao Noi is the oldest temple on the island. The name means "The temple of the small mountain" and is located on a small mountain on the south west of Koh Phangan just outside of Thong Sala. The head monk there is very friendly and is happy to give you a tour around the temple.

If you interested in any of these activities, please ask our staff for more information.

Location & Transportation

The island is located in the gulf of Thailand just 20 kilometers north of Koh Samui. The name Phangan comes from the Thai word "Ngan" (sandbar) which surrounds the island and protects the white sand beaches and beautiful coral reef that lies just off shore.
For many years Koh Phangan was inhabited only by local families of Chinese fishermen that settled here about 200 years ago. Then in the early 1980's wandering back packers discovered the island. Word of the and more and more travelers made Koh Phangan a must see during their travels.

Today Koh Phangan hosts the world famous Full Moon Party. Every full moon night close to 10,000 people gather together on Haad Rin Beach to celebrate and have an unforgettable night
