hey there, just thought i would ask for a recommendation for hotels and places to stay in koh phangan? im looking forward to going to the full moon party on 4th march but would also like a nice place to stay for a few days! i have read a few reviews but still cant make up my mind!!
well it all depends on your budget. how much are you actually willing to spend? if you don't mind spending around 150 US dollars, i would recommend Santhiya Resort and Spa. if you are looking for something extremely cheap and still nice, i would suggest baan panburi village. i suggest you make an online booking as you would probably get a better deal. i've used excelloz.com for booking hotels in singapore and malaysia. i'm sure it's pretty good for thailand hotels as well. you might want to check it out. good luck and have a nice time!
What about this place
I met the owner, in a bar in Koh Phangan.
He speaks fluent English and will help u with just about anything. He will even pick u up, at the pier, if u arrive at Ton Sala pier. U will find his email address, in the above link. If u are staying for some time(over a week), u can negotiate a good price, for the bungalows, with him.
Beach bungalows are better to stay in, than hotels. They usually have double beds, fans and a bathroom. And there is a cafe that goes with each group of bungalows
Dont stay in one, near where the full moon parties are. These often get broken into and things stolen,during the parties. And the prices go way up, during the full moon parties.

sorry cant help with your question but do you know if there's a website at all that i can check out to find out where the various full moon parties are and when?
theres a website for the Koh Phangan full moon party. but i dont have any others. http://fullmoonparty-thailand.com/schedules.html
I am also off to this on in April but i just want to know if i could get away with just finding a hostel in a city in Thailand the day before and just getting the ferry over?
