THE ISLAND: The Island is covered in tropical jungle with small roads to navigate across. Island tours include elephant trekking, temple viewing, beach exploring/snorekeling, snake shows, 'wipe out' water course, zip-line canopy adventures, Thai boxing and more. Ko PhaNgan is famed for its “Full Moon & Half Moon" parties which are hosted on the other side of the island.
You can walk everywhere in the village/bay or rent motorbikes to get around faster. (We do not recommend motorbike travel over the mountain unless you are very experianced rider.) Thongnaipan-yai beach has taxi services to/from the pier at 2 scheduled times a day (10AM, 3PM) or private taxis at your request. To visit other beaches around the island, day-trips can be arranged at the adjoining Longtail Beach Resort.
LOCATION: Ko PhaNgan is one of three tropical islands located in the gulf of Thailand. It is assessable by boats that leave Ko Samui Island several times a day or from the mainland embarking from Suratthani city and DonSak pier. Both Ko Samui and Suratthani have airports and connecting flights to/from Bangkok city. Ko Phangan does not have an airport. Thong Nai Pan Beaches have two crescent bays lined with beach bungalows and 5 Star resorts. The bigger of the two bays is called Thong Nai Pan-Yai (TNP). “Yai" means big, and the house is tucked in the hill at the end of TNP, Yai (big) beach and the end of TNP main road. This area is considered a remote part of the island, requiring 30-40 minute truck transport over narrow, dirt roads through the jungle. *The road has been under construction the last few years and is mostly concrete but expect road construction delays on the way to the bay.
Other Things to Note
This is a "Holiday House Rental", NOT a "Bed & Breakfast." Guests must provide their own meals or eat at nearby restaurants. Longtail Beach Resort will deliver their full menu to the house.
Also remember this is a "House" not a "Hotel" and does not have the same services as a full service hotel.
The road to TNP is now concrete! With the improved road, comes more travelers exploring. Longtail Beach House is located at the entrance to a small bungalow resort. Expect some motorbike traffic to pass by. The house is cozy and nestled at the end of the road with the jungle behind and has a few friendly staff neighbors to smile, sing and help service your needs. If you are looking for a "Remote Sanctuary" with silent solitude, this is not a good fit.
