Utopia Resort on Phangan - a cult hotel and restaurant with a view

About Mae Haad Beach there is a hill with a beautiful view of the northpart of the Gulf of Siamese. The hill is not the highest on this bank of Phangan, so the sunsets and sunrises here begin and end behind the mountains, and the horizon is a bit boring due to the absence of any hints of land. People come here to break away from reality, forget about their lives for a while and just sit on the balcony, watching the horizon line, where the sky and the sea meet. Great views are the only thing that is valuable in Utopia on Phangan.

Hotel Utopia Resort on Phangan

First of all, I must say that Utopia Resort

- this is a hotel. Moreover, the cult and everyone has heard, in the season everything is usually occupied. Approximately the same as Haad Son Resortwhere I was too. Only in Haad Sona I lived, but I did not become in Utopia, I just went to a restaurant, which I recommend to you, but about the restaurant below.

Reviews and good and bad, but the rating is high. Stop for a few days in the Utopia Resort is, but only in the houses overlooking the sea (Delux Seaview), they look better, and the amazing sea view from the balcony compensates for the simplicity of the tired interior. In cheaper bungalows (Standard, View of the pool) there may be no Internet, the interior is even simpler, there is no beautiful view and a lot of insects.

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.

In my opinion, it makes no sense to take a bungalow without a view, it’s better to live downstairs for the same money, only in the best conditions, and to come to a restaurant in Utopia. But then decide for yourself.

Alternatively, book deluxe is not in peak season. Then prices fall and already correspond more to the level. For example, in January, bungalows with a view of the sea cost about 3,000 baht, and in summer only 1,400 baht. Noticeable difference.

And green territory

You should remember the following. The nearest beach is Thong Lang. It is located at the foot of the hill on which the resort is located, and the beach is within walking distance. And for those who like to swim, a small wooden raft was built, from which you can jump into the sea. A quality staircase leads to the raft, from the territory of the resort itself. If you need other nearby beaches, then you can get there with the help of a transfer from Utopia or on a rented bike, which is preferable - then you will not depend on the schedule of the free shuttle. Until the same Mae Haad Beach, it’s literally about 10 minutes.

Restaurant Utopia Resort

And if the hotel is not suitable for everyone, then it’s worth going to the restaurant at least once. Alone or for a romantic dinner with the second half. True, the view is pleasant.

I would not say that prices are too high here. So let's say they are average for such restaurants, which are popular with a panoramic-type chip. But mostly they serve Thai dishes and make them so-so. By and large, if not for the view, then nothing special. Therefore, probably, some people write about high prices, because food court Pantip Market Typhoid costs 2 times cheaper, while the same or tastier.

European dishes are also not ice. At least that's what they say. I did not experiment (enough for this Orion or Herd) and ordered the usual coconut soup Tom Kha and rice to him. Plus shake pineapple.

Information to visit

Be sure to go to Bar 360it is located on the same hill and a path leads to it straight from Utopia. There, the view is probably even better, but there is no food, mostly just drinks.

The hotel provides its guests with freetransfer to one side of the pier, and which one - you decide. I would choose a transfer upon departure, for I met reviews that the guys sometimes forget to meet you. Transfer to the beaches decreases from the hotel at 11 and at 14 o'clock. Come back at 16 and at 18 o'clock.

Rent a scooter in the hotel - 250 baht per day, per click. Lower prices in the restaurant.

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.
