We stayed 6 nights in January 2012 at this resort. The bay itself is absolutely breath taking and it is one of the most beautiful and secluded spots I have ever seen. However, the experience of our stay in Mai Pen Rai Bungalows was a bad one, deciding never to use this resort again during any future stays in Than...

Mai Pen Rai bungalows are a lovely place to stay. We kind of knew what to expect after reading many reviews and the resort lived up to our expectations! It is a very chilled and relaxed place and the rooms and bathrooms are nice. We stayed on the rocks which was really unique and had great views. The rooms on...

With the trails of Asia becoming harder to make your own we felt lucky to have found, we feel by chance, this remote and relatively untouched piece of paradise. We travelled by scooter over roads that may have helped this little pocket of Koh Phangan remain so relaxed. There were 3 of us staying in a 3 bed family bungalow....

We stayed here for 1 week in a family bungugalow on the rocks. We loved it! Our children ( 4 and 6 years old) had a great time and are still talking about this place. good food and great vibe. The view was also one you have never seen before only one minus; the laundry was not really good, it...

We stayed at Mai Pen Rai back in December 11, and although we were hit by the bad weather that came in over Christmas we still had a wonderful stay.  We had a bungalow on the rocks - it was family sized/duplex so huge for the two of us! The build quality was amazing. Obviously we saw a few ants...

Well what can I say, this place was perfect from the time we set off on the 4wd jungle ride to just get there till the time we sadly had to say goodbye. The accommodation is exactly the relaxed traditional Thai bungalow on the beach that we needed after the full moon craziness. The staff were all very very friendly...

These bungalows are some of the best value rooms on Koh Phangan. You can choose riverside, beachfront or ‘on the rocks’ – and each has it’s advantages. We chose to go up on the rocks again (our second stay here) as the views are great. We were lucky to get one of the newer rooms (43) which has a solid...

I was looking for a quiet, unspoilt beach to unwind for a while, and this place ticked all the boxes! The bay is on the quieter part of Koh Phangan, away from all the craziness of Had Rin, so it's not the place to come if you're looking for buckets of booze and dodgy techno. Instead, what you'll get is...

OK, so this should have been the holiday everyone here seems to go on about but our experience was underwhelming. The bungalows we saw and stayed in ranged from below average to average, such that we moved to Plaa's up the hill. People talked about the bad weather over Xmas/New Year so I won't repeat it. But the overall impression...
