Buri Rasa Koh Phangan is a beachfront 4 star luxury hotel located on the island of Koh Phangan. It has a traditional yet a contemporary style that makes it authentic. The hotel is located on the northeast part of the island in Thong Nai Pan Noi.
The hotel opened in 2012, which is pretty recent, and it’s actually in amazing shape, very well maintained. It has excellent ratings in booking website such as Booking.com (9.3 review score) ; TripAdvisor (rated number 2 on the island). Well deserved.
Tongsala Pier is about 11 kms away, it’s on the other side of the island, about a 30 minute drive.
Right next to it is a small village with a lot of local restaurants; delicious restaurants and small shops for some island shopping. I would also suggest you try dinner at the hotel on the beach, it’s delicious. In the top foods I had all through my stay in Thailand.
Checking in at Buri Rasa Koh Phangan
Arriving at the hotel, you are offered a welcome drink (water or butterfly flower water) and small delicious cookies or muffins as you are seated until they fill in all the papers for you. Right then you can feel how the service will be like; a luxurious kind of service.
We stayed in a pool/beach view on the 3rd floor, which i loved. The rooms are spacious with a bed and a seating area; bathrooms are equipped with a rain shower, and amenities in ceramic jars (for ecological reasons) and a delicious fresh fruit basket with a guide to the fruits.[easy-image-collage id=580]
On top of it all, there is a pillow menu!! I love hotels with pillow menus <3 You can order whichever pillow you’d like from the menu just by dialing 0.
The hotel offers Free WiFi everywhere (in the rooms and in their public areas too). A delicious breakfast buffet each morning which is fantastic and fresh. Samples of local desserts brought to your room each night. An impeccable service to be honest.
Beach bar makes wonderful cocktails and the staff really goes the extra miles to make sure that you have the best of times.
