Hits you where it counts

More on Ko Pha Ngan

While you don’t get to gaze at islands from the balconies at Phangan Island View, the spotless and comfortable rooms do come with views of a central swimming pool within walking distance of Thong Sala town and the beach.

Travelfish says:

Set in a pair of white two-storey concrete buildings with dark-wood trim on either side of the long pool, the rooms are spacious and equipped with comfy beds, desks, TVs, fridges, safes, bathrooms with hot-water showers behind curtains and glass sliding doors opening to balconies with cushioned benches. White tile floors and white walls are punctuated by single framed prints – decoration was not much of a consideration here. Even so, we felt that Island View’s rooms are considerably better than the similarly priced digs at Phatchara Boutique Hotel, which goes for a trendier style on the northern fringe of Thong Sala town.

Several plastic lounge chairs rim the pool, while breakfast is served to rattan tables in a small dining area. WiFi is free and the English-speaking staff can help with bicycle or motorbike rental, ferry tickets and info on exploring the island. The location puts you just east of Thong Sala town, about a 10-minute walk from the ferry piers, making this a good choice for a night if you’re leaving first thing in the morning. It also makes a comfortable base for those who don’t need to be on the beach.
