A perfect place to chill out after a nights partying in nearby Chaweng and we are also located walking distance to the piers that transfer you to and from the nearby island of Koh Phangan for the Full Moon Party (speedboats leave every hour during party time) and Koh Tao a well. Also within walking distance is the popular Big Buddha Monument and the popular Diving Schools.
