Koh Phangan is beautiful no matter where you stay but if you are looking for something a little luxurious then here's your answer. Although originally known as a backpacker destination and a hotspot for yoga, over the last few years Koh Phangan has really evolved to accommodate a luxury market as well.
Most luxury resorts and hotels have quite a few facilities. You can expect room service, ironing and washing, and a concierge service at just about every large luxury hotel – and the workers will be well trained to be polite, courteous, and responsible. Many budget hotels would not provide these services. If you’re looking to holiday in style, a luxurious hotel is typically a safer choice. If you intend on spending a lot of time at your hotel, and you want the most relaxing stay imaginable, a luxury hotel is a perfect option – particularly if you are not travelling alone. With that being said, it is still very possible to go off exploring the island and involving yourself in activities whilst staying in a luxury resort or hotel and enjoying the more luxury options on Koh Phangan.
Budget hotels are inexpensive for a reason. Sometimes, the buildings can be badly managed. Space may be smelly or unclean, or devices like the air conditioning may not be of the highest standard. This depends on the place, of course, but for the most part, a luxurious hotel is going to be safer, well-maintained, and more relaxing which is what you will want from a holiday.
Luxury hotel suites typically provide larger quarters, as well as dining and living quarters, and also kitchenettes and additional connected spaces, in some instances. This makes them better for bigger families, including those that like to spread out a little further.
Many luxury lifestyle customers choose to come to Koh Phangan as it is a truly beautiful island, perfect for relaxing, unwinding, indulging and soaking up the sun, sea and good energy.
It was only a matter of time that the luxury and the 5-star market came here, adding another dimension of tourism to Phangan. The island also boasts attractions to cater to this lifestyle such as all the natural wonders like trekking gorgeous viewpoints, beach-hopping, boat trips, sunset watching and ocean adventures. Plus many people love to enjoy the party scene or nightlife and spiritual activities such as yoga or retreats, whilst staying in luxury accommodation to enjoy their vacation in style and comfort.
