Sandy Bay Resort, Koh Phangan
Sandy Bay is one of Koh Phangan's original Thai beach resorts. It has a long lasting tradition of providing the best in Thai hospitality while maintaining high standards of comfort in close harmony with the surrounding nature.
The resort occupies the entire southern beach front of Haad Yao and is surrounded by lush well matured tropical gardens and tall palm and tropical trees. This area has developed over the years in harmony with the beautiful surroundings, retaining the natural splendor and it's laid back atmosphere. Sandy Bay has helped shape this transition by building to high standards while integrating the natural beauty surrounding the resort.
The old palm leave huts from around 10 years ago have since been replaced with new bungalows all outfitted to meet western standards and fit for every budget. There is a wide selection of traditional Thai style fan and air conditioned bungalows all with private bathrooms to choose from. Either set directly on the beach, only few meters away from the ocean or high up on stills set in the small foothills that look over Had Yao, all bungalows have been designed with the guest in mind and provide unobstructed panoramic ocean views and a maximum of comfort and privacy. The bungalows are spacious with private balconies and the bathrooms have been finished to hotel standards.
The Sandy Bay Restaurant is well known to be one of the best in the area. It serves exquisite Thai and Western food at affordable prices.
