Fodor's Expert Review Dolphin Bungalows
61 Moo 5, Koh Phangan, Nakhon Si Thammarat, 84280, Thailand
These are the perfect beach bungalows, built entirely of wood with shuttered windows and hammocks slung on the decks. They are situated in a veritable Garden of Eden on the southern end of Haad Tong Nai Pan. They're not on the beach, which is on Koh Phangan's north shore, but rather sit behind an ultracool beach bar with various shaded lounge areas where you can play cards, sip cocktails, or just laze away the days. This is a cool spot for those wishing just to hang out. Booking can be difficult as the resort deals exclusively with online portals. Walk-in deals are sometimes possible, but don't rely on it.
