A stunning location but difficult to get to and no wifi. The bungalow was up a lot of steep stairs and you are really back to nature (Not good if you are with a child as they can fuss a lot). Fantastic location, so beautiful with great staff! A fabulous place to relax and enjoy the scenery and beach.
We loved the setting! The bungalows are set among thick tropical plants and tall beautiful trees. Lots of wildlife like birds, monkeys, snakes and lizards...all harmless and beautiful to observe. The beach is really beautiful! Probably the best beach on Koh phangan. I will definitely return to Bottle beach someday!
We didn't like the beds. They were super hard and the sheets felt like thick winter sheets. If they could use 100%cotton like most of the other resorts the sleeping would be far more comfortable. The internet connection was not great, we kept loosing signal. The restaurant was a little dirty, it felt like they never really clean or wash or the tables or condiments...everything was grimy.
Every bungalow had a hammock on their porch. It was really great to sit in it and look out onto the beach. Because you can only get to the beach by boat, it was a great place to start our vacation and just eat, lay on the beach, swim and sleep. The beach and water is clean and not very busy. The food there is also really great and at a great price.
We booked this last minute so we were unaware how difficult it was to get to the beach. If we would have called ahead of time then they could have scheduled to have someone get us, but since we did not have a possibility to call we had to take a taxi boat to the beach. This was fine but if it was dark then it would have been more dangerous.
We booked an economy bungalow and it was right on the beach with an incredible view. The beach itself is spotlessly clean and very peaceful. Crystal clear turquoise water, great for swimming. Fantastic hike through the jungle to the viewpoint which looks out over the bay. Tricky climb but so worth it.
The bungalow and balcony were very small. My husband and I are quite tall and it did start to feel a little claustrophobic. The bed was very hard but most beds we have had during our travels in Thailand have been the same. Most of the staff were very friendly but there were a few who were quite grumpy, ironic given the name! Service in the restaurant was extremely slow. We ate our evening meals at Restaurant 1 just down the beach where the food was good and the service was excellent
Nice Beach/surrounding area, quiet place. Perfect to relax beyond the busy touristic places.
When you stay at Smile Bungalows in Ko Pha-ngan, you'll be on the beach, just steps from Bottle Beach and a 1-minute drive from Haad Khom Beach. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
