The Blue Parrot

Good-value air-con

More on Ko Pha Ngan

The Blue Parrot is a small British/Thai-run resort with good-value air-con rooms and a mature atmosphere.

Travelfish says:

Accommodation comes in two rows of concrete buildings, either in grey-brushed concrete or painted amber. Fronted by terraces with bamboo chairs and tables, sliding glass doors face a central sandy area – a handful of flowering trees look good but don’t quite provide privacy, so you’ll need to keep the heavy curtains drawn when changing. Rooms are spotless and spacious, with tile floors, soft mattresses on concrete platforms, good-size bathrooms with showers placed behind partitions, and some Northern Thai tribal woodcarvings placed on light ocher or sky-blue paintjobs with a swirling texture.

Rooms with two twin beds are a bit cheaper than those with one queen-size bed, but there’s no other difference. A couple of fan rooms are also available, though these tend to get hotter than a regular bungalow would.

While The Parrot does not have a swimming pool, it does boast a breezy seafront restaurant with floor cushions and tables spread over a huge wood deck within spitting distance of the sea at high tide. The laid-back owners serve tasty Western and Thai food along with an Australian craft beer or two.

The location puts you about halfway between Thong Sala town and Baan Tai village – it’s a bit far to walk in either direction but quick on a motorbike or bicycle.
