Pan Beach Bungalows Ao Nang Reviews
Excape to a hidden gem May 26, 2011
Ok, This is a unique one. On the face of it, and by the stars I have given you would give this place a wide berth. You could argue that the location is pretty poor. It is a good 20 minutes on a moped from Ao Nang. However, I have stayed at this place twice, over 3 years, most recent visit was Jan 2011 and for good reason, although I would recommend no more than 3 nights here, for reasons to follow. If you want a beautiful beach virtually to yourself, away from long tail boats and other tourists for a tiny amount of money, this could be for you.
So upside, amazing (almost private beach) very friendly staff, cheap - 450bht for a small bungalow, breakfast extra, only about 6 or so other bungalows, so very few people to bother you, views of Islands to die for, very reasonable restaurant. Also,every bungalow has a veranda with a hammock, Bliss! It is very peaceful here.
Ok, the downsides, no electricity from 8am till 6pm, water to bathrooms is pumped from the ground and is a little bit yellow/brown when you fill the sink so you never feel really clean (hence why 3 days is enough) no internet at all, (although Pan has promised it for 2012) only the one restaurant, nearest alternatives are at least 10 mins to Khlong Muang or 20 mins to Ao Nang. The bungalows are very basic with a poor mattress and blanket and a mosquito net over. The bathroom is small and basic, toilet has to be flushed with a small bucket. Also, a big problem with this beach (Long Beach) is the sand flies which come and attack you from about 4pm onwards. They are so small, you do not even see them! To conclude, for all it's downsides, I love this place (in small doses) for it's tranquility and beauty, and when the sun shines it is heavenly! If you are in the bungalows nearest the sea (approx 30yds) you can hear the tide coming in and out as you wake up!
