Hotel on Haad Yao Beach on Phangan - long swimming pool and 1st line

Another review of the hotel in Phangan, where I stayed. Situated on Haad Yao beachwhich in my opinion is one of the best oneast coast. If you are interested in beach holidays, but not far from everything, then I would consider this area first. So read my review, there is a weird design, but the pool is chic.

Price and reservation

I took a deluxe room on the second floor overlooking the pool for 1,800 baht (the peak of the season). In See Through Resort Haad Yao

there were also bungalows for 1,400 baht in the neighboring territory and rooms in the same building, but on the first floor for 2,300 baht with access to the pool. That is, I had such a mid-range option for the price.

Be sure (and I insist) check availabilitydiscounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. It will quickly and simply show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.

Not at the peak of the season (I was in January) my number is about 800 baht, generally a great price. Checkout is standard at 12, but I left at 13.30 and no questions.

And it looks like the neighboring Haad Yao Bungalows

also belong to the same owner, because the photos of these two hotels intersect. Where to book, I think, all the same.

Interior

The design is quite controversial and an amateur. You know, “we didn’t finish repairing this at all, it’s the designer’s idea”. Ala loft-style. I have already met this many times in Thailand. But in principle, I like it, or even it can be said that all the same, I calmly perceive the option “without finishing”. Moreover, the outside looks even more unfinished, the inside is not so noticeable. Maybe someone will not like concrete and plastered walls.

In general, the hotel corresponds to its rating (7.8). Good Haad Yao beach straight next, count the first line, spacious andnot yet old rooms (not directly new, but also not old), a large and long and swimming pool. By the way, the beach is probably one of the best on this side of the island. In general, it is suitable for those who want to live in the hotel, and not in a bungalow. I, frankly, the bungalow is already tired, especially simple.

From small minuses: so-so water from a shower poured, it is dark in the room, the legs by the bed are rather controversial, which protrude to the side, you can catch your foot. But in general, the Thais with design, furniture and layout are not always smooth. Sometimes you are amazed how uncomfortable it was to do.

2 bottles of water are free, there is soapaccessories, safe. By the way, the safe is bolted to the wall, which is not often found. No kidding, sometimes he just stands on the shelf, take it and carry it away. In order to get out, you need to leave the keys at the reception. About this hang signs in each room. Apparently not everyone reads them, and then write negative reviews that the room is not cleaned.

The Internet is not very, to put it mildly. Wifi is caught normally and connects too, but the Internet speed is bad, it works, it does not work. Below is a screenshot of the measurement when it almost does not work.

Exterior

The pool is long and it's great! Much better to do them in length than in width, even though you can swim. But! In the middle, for some reason, they made an increase in height and it is very inconvenient to swim it, there is only about 40 cm, therefore it is easier to swim only on one half. The pool itself was somewhere along the shoulders with a height of 170 cm, I would not risk jumping from a balcony or roof, well, suddenly, someone would come up with such a thought.

I know this is not something worth choosing a hotel,but it was fun for me to climb onto the roof and see the views from there. Almost free viewpoint on Haad Yao. Although it is a pity that only 2 floors, there would be 4, then I would have seen much more.

My breakfast was not included. On the resident I learned that with him the number would cost 200 baht more expensive. Although if you book on the booking site, then for some reason there’s more expensive than a 500 baht room. Strange pricing. Therefore, it is easier to take breakfasts on the spot.

By the way, breakfasts are held in Vagga bar right on the beach (the hotel goes to the beach), this type of reggae bar, but this is in the evenings, and in the morning and in the afternoon the usual Thai cafe.

Decent hotel, where there is, and a two-story building, and bungalows. Hotel on the first line, near the excellent beach, a long pool. But controversial interior.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
