In transit to Full Moon Party
Ko Samui is so big, we've split it up into areas, select one of the below for detailed accommodation and food listings in that area. Sights and general overviews for Ko Samui as a whole can be found via the icons above. Don't know where to start? Read an overview of Ko Samui's different areas.
Phalarn Inn Resort is located right by the Lomprayah Pier (towards the western end of Mae Nam) and is an ideal spot if you're looking for a transit resort on your way to Ko Pha Ngan.
The garden huts are ideal for backpackers, offering simple but clean accommodation, with packages including ferry ticketting to Ko Pha Ngan. The resort has been open for 30 years, but had a desperately needed complete overhaul in 2008. The garden bungalows come with the option of fan or air-con, priced accordingly, and there are also family bungalows. If you enjoy socialising with fellow travellers, then this resort is a good option. A personal trainer can be booked and runs aerobics classes and Thai boxing twice a week for 200 baht a class. The restaurant, bar and chill-out area look over the large swimming pool. There is a pool table and regular movie nights in the restaurant, as well as cooking classes at a reasonable 1,000 baht per person. Although not on the beach, a 100-metre path leads to a clean stretch of beach right next to the Lomprayah Pier, perhaps not the best beach if a beach break is your goal, but more than adequate for a transit night.
