Phangan Island View Hotel
Phangan Island View Resort has smart hotel rooms with A/C, wifi, hot water and TV around a swimming pool. The resort is located next to the road just outside Thongsala and has a good reputation.
It is a pleasant resort that features friendly staff as well as a restaurant and bar. The only downside is that it is a 5-minute-walk to the beach, and none of the rooms command wonderful views of Koh Phangan.
There are 3 room options at Phangan Island View Hotel. The price for these rooms depend on whether you opt to include breakfast. All the rooms are similar - they are smart and comfortable with double bed, wardrobe, TV, en-suite hot water shower and air-conditioning.
The cheapest rooms have no pool view. The next up has a pool view and the most expensive are on the ground floor with easy access to the communal pool.
This is a good spot to stay during the Full Moon Party as they don't lock guests into a 5 night stay. Their mimimum stay for the FMP is 3 nights.
The resort will pick guests up arriving at one of the piers at Thongsala.
Phangan Island View Hotel has good quality hotel rooms in a quiet area away from commercial areas. It is however, just a short walk to Thongsala and all its attractions such as the Night Market.
The hotel also has its own restaurant that serves good Thai and Western food. All the rooms are in a courtyard style overlooking the communal pool.
The staff are friendly and helpful as many reviews testify. They will arrange taxi transfers as well as do laundry. The hotel has free wifi but it's not very fast.
