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:

LOCATION
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.

THE BUNGALOWS:
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.

MOTORBIKE/CAR RENT:
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.

RESTAURANT:
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!

MASSAGE:
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.

YOGA:
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.

EXTRA BED:
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.

LOCKER/SAFE:
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 ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)ht).

HOW TO GET TO KHAO RA BUNGALOWS:
Direction will be sent once you make a reservation.

SUITABLE FOR BABY?
Not really.

SPECIAL LONG TERM RENT:
AirBnb system will automatically calculate the special discount for long term rate.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKES TO HIKE UP KHAO RA
The speed of course will varies to every people. Average time will be around 3 hours.

BREAKFAST
Food isn't included on the price (no free breakfast!)

HOW CLOSE IS RESTAURANTS, SHOPS, BANK ATM?
Thong Sala (where the pier is), is only 10 minutes ride by motorbike, and that's where you can get all of that.

First of all, we do not recommend to stay here. When we arrived at Khao Ra Bungalows after a short walk through the jungle, nobody was there to welcome us. We couldn't reach Zeea because her phone was turned off and it took us a while to realize there was a phone number written on one of the doors. With this number we reached a thai who barely spoke english but gave us the keys. However, the keys were useless to us because our bungalow did not have a lock and the door was open. Inside, we found dirty towels, empty water bottles and some insects; the mosquito net had a hole. The bathroom seemed dirty to us and was below our standard. Since we didn't want to stay alone in the jungle in a dirty bungalow with no restaurant or shop within the next 15 walking minutes, we returned the keys and left. If you're a typical backpacker looking for an adventure, this might be the place for you. But for most tourists like us who wanted to enjoy Koh Phangan's nature and get to know some locals while learning to cook thai and experiencing the culture, there are better places to stay on Koh Phangan.

Khao Ra2 is beautiful. Pee Mee is a wonderful host who is caring and receptive to the needs of her guests. Her food is also excellent! The Bungalows are in the Jungle on the side of a mountain, its lush and natural. The rooms are very simple but allow you to experience everything that is happening around you. If you are a light sleeper it may take you a morning to get used to the cacophony of insect sounds at dawn but I found it lovely. Most drivers know where the bungalows are now so don't feel that this is a detractor, (like they say it is easy to find on your own from Thong Lo) the remoteness is actually a really nice reprieve. Would stay here again and again.

We stayed here for 3 nights. It was a lovely accommodation Mae Pee was more than helpful and the freshly made food was delicious! You really are in the heart of the jungle and we had great nights sleep with the jungle noises around us, we would defiantly recommend a stat here and would love to go back there again.

Easy to book! The bungalows was a nice place to stay, with a terrific deck for eating, lounging, and watching the sunset. Unless you are coming on a scooter, I would advise making arrangements beforehand to be picked up at the pier. It took me quite a while to find a taxi who would take me over there. Pee Mee and the other women are wonderfully accommodating and make you feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this space for anyone traveling to Ko Phangan.

This is a wonderful and relaxing retreat location where you can literally tune out of city life and feel like you are living in the jungles of Thailand with your thai family. If you are looking to party in Hat Rin (for full moon), this may not be the place for you as it is a 20 minute drive and 200baht per person by taxi shuttle. We still went and got dropped off and picked up by a great driver who waited for us to finish partying. PeeMee the owner is wonderful and an amazing cook! All of the locals know her and talk about her amazing food. Her breakfast pancakes are delicious! She is super easy going and very kind and helpful . We wanted to get traditional bamboo tattoos and she got an amazing artist to come to the bungalow, show us his tattoos and escort us to the shop where we were treated like family. Word of caution, and this has nothing to do with how we were treated, this is not in anyway luxurious. There are a lot of bugs and the shower water is super cold. If you want a hotel experience, do not come here. If you want to escape reality and go on an adventure, then this is the place for you!

I enjoyed me stay at Khao Ra Bungalows. Pee Mee the owner, she was very helpful and friendly and cooked tasty and healthy food. Also on my request she prepared good vegetarian/vegan food for me. The bungalows are in a quiet nice location in the forest.
