About this listing
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.
FAQ ABOUT KHAO RA BUNGALOW:
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 (ht).
