Niramon Villas are just over the river that flows into Chalok Lam Bay on the very eastern edge next to Fantasea resort.The setting is spectacular for as the river bridge is crossed Niramon is the only villa or bungalow development in that immediate area and looks amazing the way it is all cut into the mountain.There are lots of different style bungalows on offer with the best being the poolside villas which are just above the pool, staggered higgledy piggledy with views over the beach - which is for the use of villa guests only.We also used the beach at Fantasea and so the setting is really good for choice of local beaches. Hiring a bike we could go around the islan...Read More

Yet again we stayed at Fantasea Resort and again we were not disapointed. This time around there were two new brick built bungalows just behind the beach front A frame wooden designs.These new bungalows had a double bed plus a single bed and all the usual facilities that would be expected - aircon etc. The beach at Fantasea is huge and sandy with really good swimming - gentle currents within a large bay.The restaurant had been expanded due to popular demand. I think this is because of the view over the beach which is really stunning and really adds to the dining experience. The food is great too and has a very well designed menu that gives all menu choices with meat...Read More

Wattana Resort is based at the very end of Chalok Lam Bay in koh Phangan.

With a huge range of bungalows that are laid out over the large estate there is plenty of choice for differing budgets to stay.

The resort has its own beach front with a private bay to protect swimmers and a beach front restaurant and bar to enjoy.

The accommodation is very cheap in all bungalow styles and the area is very laid back and peaceful. Ideal relaxing holiday destination. There is plenty to do in Chalok Lam - swimming, diving, elephant trekking and biking.

Overview

Koh Phangan is north of Koh Samui. It is being developed now, but it is still more relaxed than Koh Samui or Phuket. Best things to do include a snorkeling trip to Ang Thong National Marine Park a visit to Bottle Beach -lay on the beach or hike to the waterfall. The media portrays Koh Phangan as purely a Full Moon party island but in actual fact there are numerous resorts and fantastic beaches away from Haad Rin on the South. It covers an area of 168 square kilometres and Haad Rin the scene of the large paries is only a couple of square miles - so there is a lot more to see. For example moving North from the port of Thongsala along the West Coast are beaches such as Haad Yao and Haad Son tha...Read More
