Khao Ra Bungalows is nestled in the luscious foothills of Khao Ra, Ko Pha Ngan's highest mountain, with spectacular view towards the ocean. If you'd like to book for more than 2 people, please see my profile to see the other 7 bungalows. Our place is also famous for its Thai food (check the reviews!). Although only open in peak season.

FOR FULL MOON PARTY GOERS: Our place is located within 15-25 mins by car to Haad Riin Beach where the party is. Definitely not that close to the party noise.

The space

FAQ ABOUT KHAO RA BUNGALOW:

LOCATION
Our place is located in the center of the island. It takes 10-15 minutes to the closest beach/shop/restaurant, and 15-25 minutes to the Full Moon Party in Haad Rin.

THE BUNGALOWS:
We have 5 big bungalows and 3 smaller bungalows. In each bungalow, there's a queen size bed, therefore it can only be occupied by 2 people max. Ensuite bathroom for each bungalow. It has some space between one and another bungalow, so you wouldn’t hear people talking from the other bungalow. Our bungalow is also located in the middle of jungle, so it’s not close to the main road, and there’s no other accommodation around. Each bungalow has fan, mosquito net and hammock on te balcony! And as I said, IT'S IN THE JUNGLE, so expect bugs and its noises as well!

TAXI & PICK UP
Pick up from Thong Sala (please wait at 7-11) cost 200 Baht per person. If you’re coming from Ko Samui and arrived in Haad Rin Pier, the pick up cost is 400 Baht per person. For drop off and pick up service to and from Full Moon Party in Haad Rin in 600 Baht round way.

MOTORBIKE/CAR RENT:
Once you arrive on the island, you can find many motorbike rent. It usually cost you 200 Baht per day. This is the most recommended way to get to us, and the best way to explore Ko Phangan (taxi can be really expensive). To rent a car is not really common, therefore it’s quite difficult to find a place that rents a car. Pee Mee (the owner of Khao Ra) can also arrange motorbike rent once you arrive here.

ARRIVAL & CHECK OUT TIME:
Please arrive the earliest at 2 PM, and check out the latest at 10 AM. This because many times we will need to prepare your room for the next guest.

RESTAURANT:
Our restaurant usually only open during Peak Season (December - April). The price of the food ranged from 70 - 200 Baht. You can read fro our review on how good Pee Mee (the owner of Khao Ra)’s cooking is!

MASSAGE:
We do not have full time masseuses, but we can always arrange it for you. The price will be depends on the kind of massage that you want.

YOGA:
We do not offer daily yoga class. If you thought that we offer yoga class because there's a photo of yoga on our profile, it’s because that's a documentation for a yoga retreat that is held here in the past. Our place can be rented for a yoga retreat, as the multi-function hall that can be used as yoga shala.

EXTRA BED:
Each bungalow in Khao Ra can be occupied by max 2 person. Which means if you are a 3 people group, you will need to book 2 bungalows.

LOCKER/SAFE:
We do not have locker/safe. But our place is pretty safe, we never have problem with lost item, as long as you always lock your room. Our place is located in the jungle, where we have no other accommodation next to us.

THE CLOSEST BEACH:
Since we’re located around the middle of the island, to go to various beaches would take around 10-15 minutes.

THE CLOSEST AIRPORT:
Ko Samui airport is the closest one. But there is also Surat Thani airport which is in the main land and has airasia flight (cheaper option). From Ko Samui, you would just need to take ferry/speedboat to Ko Phangan (Thong Sala Pier is the closest to Khao Ra), and if you’re coming from Surat Thani, you can get bus-boat ticket from a travel agent at the airport ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)ht).

HOW TO GET TO KHAO RA BUNGALOWS:
Direction will be sent once you make a reservation.

SUITABLE FOR BABY?
Not really.

SPECIAL LONG TERM RENT:
AirBnb system will automatically calculate the special discount for long term rate.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKES TO HIKE UP KHAO RA
The speed of course will varies to every people. Average time will be around 3 hours.

BREAKFAST
Food isn't included on the price (no free breakfast!)

HOW CLOSE IS RESTAURANTS, SHOPS, BANK ATM?
Thong Sala (where the pier is), is only 10 minutes ride by motorbike, and that's where you can get all of that.

This place is rustic, no doubt, but I LOVED the hostess, the restaurant, the common area. Not accessible for someone with mobility issues, it's very close to camping in a cabin with minimal accommodations. It's a good spot to explore: Pee Mee will help you book everything you need and give you tips. And her food is straight up delicious mama home cooking made with love, plus she's great to hang out with. If you're OK with camping and are adventurous, if you want to experience Thailand with the lovely people of Kho Phangan and not a bunch of confused tourists rushing through their experience on this gorgeous island, this is your chance.

We enjoyed our stay at Khao Ra bungalows! The sight is something special and the view from some of the bungalows is great (specially at sunset). We booked 3 bungalows so we had the opportunity to compare.. To be fare, the jungle really is full of sounds and noises, but for us it was more intriguing than intimidating. Bungalows are quite basic but everything lively necessary is there. Pee Mee's cooking was great, so was her suggestions for hiking. We would definitely suggest you try and go for a hike to the Khao Ra viewpoint. The view really is magnificent! The trek is somewhat challenging but as we managed to do it with two under-3-years-old, I'm sure you'll manage just fine. One thing more to consider is the getting there. As the taxi doesn't drive directly to the bungalows (it is physically impossible) you should consider not to pack too many things as you would need to carry them up the hill a bit. So if you are up to something completely different from staying in a hotel or chilling in a beach, Khao Ra bungalows are definitely worth a try!

Zia is a great host, a great cook and was very helpful to organize out departure with transportation and ferry. The rooms / toilets are very basic but great for a value and charming

Well what can i say. This is probably the best place to stay while on Ko Phangan. Located directly on the way up to Khao Ra mountain in the jungle. Beeing two city kids we needed about two days to get used to the noises and sounds that dominate the jungle-nights and to the various insects you will inevitably cross paths with! But after that it was paradise. Pee Mee (the owner) is the nicest lady you could imagine and she cooks you the absolute best Thai-Food ever right there in the jungle, accompanied by an amazing view. She also helped us with everything we needed or had questions about. You should definitely rent a scooter, the perfect way to explore the island and find your dream beach. If you can cope with insects and noisy jungle-nights you`ll get a near perfect experience far away from tourist trouble! Plus the bungalows look like you`re staying in Ewok-Village!

Pee Mee your cooking is GREAT!!! We really miss it. The bungalows are 20 min away (by car) from Tong Sala, so if you are planning a beach trip, this may not be the place for you. But, if you want a rustic retreat in the middle of the jungle, wake up with the sound of crickets this is the perfect place!!
