Best Haad Yao Hotels

Haad Yao is one of Koh Phangan’s best beaches, and the most popular on the West Coast. There are lots of resorts and hotels to choose from. Here is our choice of the best three mid-range to high-end accommodation options.

Haad Yao Bayview Resort

Overall this is probably the best accommodation option in Haad Yao. This is a large, good standard, value for money, mid-range resort on the beach front.

What we particularly like about this resort is its beautiful pool and beach front terrace. This is complimented by a designed restaurant featuring hardwood and built around the existing large granite rocks. Add to the facilities an on-site supermarket and a bike rental shop.

This hotel is very popular all year round with families and couples. When we last visited (pre-pandemic) it was full, whilst other nearby resorts were nearly empty.

There are four room options – two room types in a hotel block, two in individual bungalows. All room types have a sea view, except the Standard Room, and all rooms have satellite TV, air-con, safe and mini-bar.

Standard double – 700 to 1,700 THB
Superior Sea View Hotel – 1,000 to 2,700 THB
Superior Sea View Bungalow – 2,100 to 4,200 THB
Beach Front Bungalow – 2,500 to 5,100 THB


Sunset Cove

Sunset Cove is a lovely peaceful family run resort. Nothing impersonal about this place.

The resort is made up of wooden buildings in a peaceful garden setting. This has an ‘old school’ Phangan bungalow feel to it albeit more comfortable. There is a really nice beach front bungalow and restaurant. WiFi in public areas.

There are four bungalow options. All rooms come with air-con, safe, fridge, TV and DVD player. Some rooms have open air bathrooms.

Standard cottage – 1,200 to 1,800 THB
Deluxe Cottage – 1,800 to 2,550 THB
Suite Cottage – 2,300 to 3,250 THB
Sea View Cottage – 2,700 to 3,850 THB


Sunset Hill Boutique Resort

Located on a hill top location overlooking Haad Yao beach, this 30 apartment resort is probably Haad Yao’s most luxurious accommodation option.

The big selling point of Sunset Hill Apartments is the panoramic sea-views. One of the best views on the West coast.

This resort has an infinity pool and a viewpoint restaurant. The rooms here are good quality. All the facilities you would expect from a luxury hotel. Some rooms also have a kitchenette.

This resort also caters for groups of people travelling together with room options for 1 to 6 people:

Studio – 1,975 to 7,950 THB
1 Bedroom – 3,250 to 7,550 THB
2 Bedroom – 3,250 to 12,000 THB
3 Bedroom – 7,950 to 15,000 THB
