“Good value for a few days' R&R”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Bottle Beach 1 is a pretty good joint but I wasn't sold on the beach itself. It's beautiful but not particularly more so than any other beach on Ko Pha Ngan. The pool area here is nice and they do probably the best food on the beach but I would give Smile bungalows a look as well. If you are looking for bungalows, try Smile; if you want A/C and a telly then go to Bottle Beach. The other two places definitely weren't appealing.

After India it is refreshing to be in Thailand.

We stayed in the resort for 4 nights. What a stunning beach and a beautiful resort. The food was fantastic and the staff were helpful. Thank you for a great stay and we hope to re-visit later on in our travels.

i didnt like the place at all. we were staying in a bungalow which was stinking (smelled like pee) and had a lot of cockroaches in our room.The beach is dirty. Most horrible are the young waiters, who think they are american gangsters and always want to high five. Started to getting on our nerves after a few days. The pool was dirty, i was not going inside once! The only plus is the food: Really good but expensive. Dont stay there!

We arrived without a reservation, which is not the best idea around this beach, and were lucky to get a simple bungalow (wooden, raised above ground on poles) which had fan, cold shower, but it just fits into that idea of lonely beach so we were satisfied. The place is really quiet, staff is helpful and entertaining,but sometimes they need a break from all those smiles.) Food was tasty, teethless boat driver was always on time and beach was very empty and overall excellent in comparison with other ko phangan's destinations.
You have to ask for a room service. There are 2 overpriced shops runned by the resorts, so buy what you can in chaloklum if you are a budget backpacker.
oh, and check that viewpoint which is amazing!
