Island View Cabana Koh Phangan Reviews
Pretty quiet and affordable! Jun 22, 2016
I found this place with a simple search of hotels on Koh Phangan and sorted the results from price: low to high. I originally saw a room listed at 9 bucks a night.
It's a pretty long and fairly expensive taxi ride from the Thongsala port, but when you get there it's a really nice setting. The beach right outside the bungalows (about 40 ft) is very nice and clean. The restaurant is a little overpriced but you do get great service and good quality food!
Room: The room had a simple layout with a queen size bed and a wardrobe to hang your clothes and put belongings. It was a latch on the inside for privacy and a padlock on the outside for when you were out and about. The wifi was not reliable in the room, but in the restaurant it was ok. It cut out intermittently.
Bathroom: The bathroom has a tankless water heater for the shower. There is not a shower area, only a shower head so keep this in mind when booking if this isn't something you're comfortable with. There was a western style toilet in my bungalow.
Pros: the beach is amazing.
Koh Ma is literally right there.
Friendly and helpful staff
Clean toilet and bathroom.
Cons: The bed is not very comfortable.
At night there are loud insects sometimes.
A solo traveler will need to find a group to split a taxi with, or pay a taxi 500 BAHT to get across the island.
I personally had a good stay, but will try and find another hotel on my next stay on Koh Phangan.
