1st Choice for Holiday Rentals on Koh Phangan

 

Phangan Koh

No longer a secret location for a few errant wanderers, the island of Koh Phangan has become the choice for savvy international travellers looking for the best Thailand has to offer. It is located in the southeastern Gulf of Thailand and situated only 12 km from Koh Samui, from where most visitors transit by a short ferry ride. The flight from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport to Koh Samui takes about an hour, while overland travel and the ferry from the mainland 70 km away from Samui takes quite a bit more time.

What makes Koh Phangan a great place to take holiday is that the island boasts all of the original bohemian feel to it that drew early visitors, but now also has more modern conveniences. These include a Tesco Lotus outlet and many well stocked stores and shops. Also, there is plenty of holiday or long-stay accommodation to choose from, and activities enjoy. Visitors can totally unwind on its many beaches and go snorkelling to their hearts’ content in azure seas; or they can have an active and busy time exploring the various towns and villages, never getting bored.

There is quite a variety of places to stay on Koh Phangan. Each of the beaches and accompanying town settings differ quite a bit. One finds quite a few hotels, even five-star resorts, along the well-known Haad Rin beach, where the monthly Full Moon Party is attended by revellers loving its raucous music scene that goes night and day. However, the isle also has many isolated and peaceful beaches, such as Ao Hin Kong, a mostly undeveloped stretch of oceanfront with some bungalows used more by long-term renters. There are also several wellness centres and detox resorts, such as The Sanctuary, that cater to those looking for peaceful retreat and a refreshing rebound from life’s stresses.

The trend among many visitors is towards the convenience, savings and privacy offered by exclusive private villas, which are located all across the island. Locations vary from those in the hills amidst lush jungle, to secluded villas perched on hillsides with amazing sunset views of distant islands. Amenities can vary as well, although even the smaller places often have options available for daily cleaning, a visiting cook and watchful managers who are available to help with bookings and special requests. More luxe appointments can include a full kitchen, entertainment centre, spa-like facilities, with standby staff to attend to your every need.

In either case, the wisest of travellers book with a company that knows the area, such as Koh Phangan Holiday Homes. Their expert agents know local contacts, speak the language, and can help to choose accommodation that meet guests’ budgets and needs. In short, they can turn a simple trip into a dream vacation.

If you choose to do more than laze on a white sand beach in the sun, activities on Koh Phangan include jungle treks, elephant rides, scuba-diving classes, cruise trips through wondrous Ang Thong National Marine Park’s several geographically stunning islands, sailing, motor-boating or deep-sea fishing day trips, and much more.
