The Neighborhood

THE BEACH/ACTIVITIES: Thongnaipan (TNP) Beach is a short minute stroll down the paved driveway leading you to an idyllic white sand beach perfect for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, floating, beach combing, jogging or sun tanning. A variety of other activities are offered including trekking, island tours, and boat, diving & fishing trips as well as day trips to Angthong National Marine Park.

THE VILLAGE: The local village is a tiny tourist town with amenities including ATM’s, 711, resorts, shops, kiosks, nursing clinics, travel agents, motorbike rental, elementary school, temple, restaurants, nightlife and guests from all over the world.

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.

Getting around

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 improving. 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.

  • A very nice place to stay if you like very simple life in a part of "jungle".....fantastic view, fantastic people at Longtail Beach resort just down the hill , we very appreciate the Villa but the comfort is a little too "rustic" for us.
    Impossible to stay outside because of mosquitos, A/C as an extra charge?! small bedrooms with small beds, nightlife of dogs, gecko and frogs very noisy, so difficult to sleep peacefully in this place, but thank you Brenda and Brian to let us know this wonderful Longtail Beach Resort in this TNP Bay , cause we finished our stay in a bungalow there and very enjoy it for a very cheap price.
    Anyway we spent a lovely time in Ko Phangan.

  • We really had a wonderful stay. You are at the end of the beach, a short walk up the hill from the water. The house is a part of a small resort with other cabins and a restaurant at the beach. The food at the restaurant was really good and when we were there it was the most popular spot on the beach. We really like the massaman curry, and noname appetizers. The staff is very attentive and helpful although you want to be patient to make sure you understand each other when speaking English. Overall, and amazing place to stay if you find yourself in this little piece of paradise.

  • It was a great venue offering a pleasant Thai beach house experience!

  • We spent five nights at Brenda's house and were extremely impressed with the home and its surroundings. Not your average bungalow, this is an honest-to-god house with two generously-sized bedrooms and an open-concept living room with floor to ceiling windows that can be pulled aside to fully appreciate a most impressive view of TNP Beach and its surroundings. Multiple hammocks and a series of ceiling fans facilitate chilling out after a long hard day of swimming in one of Koh Phanang's greatest beaches.

    The resort on which the house resides has an outstanding water-facing restaurant with reasonably-priced Thai food and drinks and friendly wait staff. Order "Thai hot" and they will not let you down. The resort owner, Mr. Oh, was incredibly helpful when it came to providing advice on activities, venues and transportation.

    Situated at the end of TNP Yai beach, you will feel especially secluded. We appreciated a lack of foot traffic cluttering the view of the water.

    I would advise being cautious about staying here during rainy season as there is only one road to TNP beach and when the conditions are really poor, land and water taxi drivers may refuse to take you there. On one occasion we were even denied a Jeep rental, due to the road conditions. Otherwise, if you are looking for a unique and excluded island experience in an especially nice living space I can think of no better option on Koh Phanang.

  • ok if ure thinking of going to the full moon party or just wanna get away from the hustle and bustle of bangkok. look no further and go no further koh phangan's very own bungalow is here to charm and mesmerize even the non-nature lover. exceptional place to stay only setback was it was 30 mins from haad rin, but who needs hadd rin when you have this side of the beach all to yourself. everyone is friendly . and the manager mr o what can i say about him he is the perfect representative for the ambassador of the island always thoughtful and caring to tourists and always willing to help. my recommendation from all my years of travel come and stay at this resort no regrets, whatsoever. will definitely go back. (suits families with children, couples, friends.)
