Where to stay in Ko Pha Ngan

Stick to the southern coast for the greatest range of accommodations on Ko Phangan. Reasonably priced beach resorts and backpacker hotels offering basic rooms line the shore and the area surrounding the main ferry dock. The southeastern peninsula also hosts decent options, and generally offers a bit more luxury than the establishments located near the docks. Explore the remoter areas to enjoy resort-style accommodations, offering seclusion and privacy at relatively steep prices.
