Popular and famous hotel in Phangan - Haad Son Resort

Overall, the Haad Son Resort is a pleasant place for meLiked by a combination of factors. But as always, there are nuances. Despite the fact that this is a popular and very popular hotel (actually, for this reason, I came here first of all), he was already tired. In general, I just want to say that I had the opinion that prices for hotels in Pangan are too high. On the same Samui for the same money you can get a room or service better. However, if the price suits and the location is like, then you can consider.

Price and reservation

Took "Deluxe with a balcony" for 2500 baht / day, which is not near the beach. At Haad Son Resort

there was also a “Standard Bungalow” for 1800 baht and"Deluxe on the beach" for 3300 baht / day. Such prices in January during the peak season. Please note, in a review they did not advise taking certain “Villa Deluxe”, they say, the old ones are already very. In the summer, when there are few tourists, prices fall by about 2 times.

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.

. The checkout from the hotel, by the way, is normal - at 12, and in some hotels they want to leave at 10 already.

Interior

3 stars and 7.7 rating. Probably, somewhere it is, although I would put a lower rating, yet the price-quality ratio suffers here. Expensive! If it were not for a cozy cove, a pleasant beach and an original restaurant, the hotel would be much less attractive.

So, what was my number. It was located on the second floor of a two-story building, which stands right on the shore, consider the first line and beach front. But my room was simply called “Deluxe”, and “Deluxe on the Beach” is located on the first floor and has direct access from the balcony to the beach, while the rooms are almost the same. But! the beach in this particular place is unwelcoming and is a strip of sand and a retaining stone wall. To swim, you need to pass 50-100 metro to the left. Therefore, in my opinion, there is no point in overpaying for Deluxe on the Beach.

The room is slightly shabby already, it is clear that the repairwas good, but how many years ago it was unknown. Guys, well, make redecorating on time and your rating will go off scale. Weird people. Trite any hooks in the bath there, to hang a towel, and those that are, you can see what they look like in the photo. Shower watering is also not ice, switching modes was broken. The room smelled damp, and on the walls of the balcony on the street was, or mold, or stains from the water. But in fairness it must be said that before my arrival for several months it rained, without ceasing, heavy rain, and such that half of the island was flooded.

From equipment: small square TV, air conditioning, safe, mini fridge and everything. But at the same time, the lighting control of the room from the remote near the bed. Funny, it would be better to hang a normal TV.

Wifi was caught in the room, but the speed is not to say that it is very large. Although surfing is enough.

Territory and restaurant

The whole resort is located on the mountainside, thereforethe size of the territory is limited, and once again you do not want to go up and down stairs. Everywhere everything is cleaned and clean, paved paths and all kinds of shrubs. Visually beautiful and pleasing to the eye. Near a large building, where the reception and office has a swimming pool, which is not particularly popular, as the beach is close by. Beside it is a seating area with tables and chairs, a pool table is worth it.

The restaurant is pleasant, and the surroundings, and sunsets, andlocation on a small peninsula. We sat there several times with friends in the evenings. True, the food seemed to me rather ordinary, nothing special, but I am not a gourmet. How many do not go to various cafes in Thailand, in terms of food I normally (everywhere, except some individual cafes), it remains to evaluate only the interior, the atmosphere and the view. With this, everything is in order. But the breakfasts are so-so, I had breakfast once and decided that I would eat in another place. Breakfast is 200 baht, if not included in the room rate.

By the way, no one bothers to visit restaurant Koh Raham or Secret Beach without checking into a hotel, there is free access. I will have a separate post about this restaurant, as the place is a cult.

Map and location

The main advantage of this hotel is that it is located right next to the Secret Beach or as it is called Haad son beachnamed resorta. The beach is not the best on Phangan, but by the standards of Phangan it is quite a good one. On this side of the island, all the beaches, plus or minus, are similar.

However, the beach can and be considered a minus, if youlove total solitude. The fact is that many third-party people come to this beach in a season, but the problem is not their number (there is enough space for everyone), but the fact that they take up parking space and pass through the hotel’s territory. Of course, they walk along a separate path, and not along bungalows or deluxes, but still the entrance courtyard, even from the side, can strain someone.

Very close to Haad Yao beach, where you can walk, the truth will be the ascent and descent, as the whole hotel is on the mountain. Neighboring Haad Salad and Shritan are also very close, if you are on a bike.

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.
