A cheap and nice place to stay in thongsala. Clean rooms. Very nice and helpfull staff (the owner is a cool german guy), good food served all day, and one of the best coffee in town. We would definitely stay there again.

This guesthouse was a really good find it's out of the noise and hustle and bustle of haad rin but close enough to go in for the night. The owner mike is so helpful and the coffee shop he runs down stairs does the best sandwiches in Thailand and the milkshakes are pretty good too! All in all a really...

I had a feeling when we booked the glass cottage that it was going to be a very special place, and it was. Michael, the host, met us upon arriving via boat in Koh Phangan and was so welcoming. We arrived at the cottage and it is just gorgeous. It's small and cosy and has everything you need, like bath...

We spent a month in Koh Phangan just outside town and visited A's coffee on a regular basis as they did great coffee.... On our last night we wanted to stay in town as we were catching the early morning ferry so asked about staying at the guest house above the coffee shop. We thought because it was low season...

Found The Glass Cottage by chance, and what a find! It's absolutely beautiful, the views are stunning and the owner, Mike very friendly and helpful. Every little thing has been carefully considered, the cleaning ladies even left homemade cookies everyday! There is a little bar right next door run by Piu and is lovely in the evening, all lit up...

Just 5 minutes walk from the main pier, we walked into Buakao Inn without reservation as it was during the green season/ low season last year. We get to know about this place through Lonely Planet and read some good reviews about it, after inspecting the room, we agreed to stay on. Mike, the owner was accommodating and made every...

Buakao Inn is a great little spot in the heart of Thongsala not far from where the ferry lets you off. It's billed as comfort on the cheap--and trust me, it delivers. The bed in Room 5 was extremely comfortable, there's an excellent diner/cafe with tasty and relatively inexpensive breakfast just downstairs, and the staff are all extremely pleasant, particularly...

We turned up here at 6pm for a coffee after being so disappointed with another resort we had to leave. Luckily they had 1 room left for the nights we wanted. It was so nice to realise the great coffee shop had a connected guesthouse upstairs and the staff were really helpful in getting us set-up. The location is excellent...

We stayed in the Glass bungalow while we were visiting the island for the Full Moon Party. We would recommend that anyone wanting to stay in luxury stays at A's Beach Place. The Glass bungalow is amazing. The bed is huge and so comfy and there are two couches and a writing desk too. The view is simply breathtaking and...

I had a TERRIBLE experience at this inn. I booked a room at Buakao Inn on Sawadee.com a couple weeks in advance and paid the entire room fee 450 BHT per night. Because I was unsure of my travel plans, I inquired whether it was possible to add an extra person or change the dates for my stay. Since I...

Thanks for the review. Obviously this guest did not stay with us. The "friend" who did make a booking also did not stay. A customer booked a room during our busiest time of year for one person. The booking inquiry was done with our online agency who clearly requires full prepayment. The customer then asked not to make any payment...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Phangan's most luxurious guest house. Buakao Inn has ultra comfortable rooms with luxurious beds, free WiFi connection throughout the property, hot water showers with ensuite bathrooms, air-conditioning, safety deposit box and cable TV. Daily housekeeping services provide clean towels and bottled water for all guests. Returning guests to the island or first time visitors, this is the perfect place to begin to explore the island. The central location is great for a clean, safe home base. Located only 5 minutes walk from Koh Phangan's main piers and taxi stands, our guesthouse is perfect for divers taking a scuba course, yoga students and teachers or beach lovers looking for the perfect place to get some sun. Dance party goers too will find this central location great for a long and luxurious sleep before and after the all night raves our island is famous for. We are in the middle of Thongsala but our rooms are very quiet. Even if you are looking for a house to rent and want some time to find for the right place, we are the ideal central point to start your house hunt. ... more   less
