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.

The space


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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Since we’re located around the middle of the island, to go to various beaches would take around 10-15 minutes.

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).

Direction will be sent once you make a reservation.

Not really.

AirBnb system will automatically calculate the special discount for long term rate.

The speed of course will varies to every people. Average time will be around 3 hours.

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

Thong Sala (where the pier is), is only 10 minutes ride by motorbike, and that's where you can get all of that.

Khao Raa Bungalows is a wonderful place to stay if you are doing some soul searching, if you need some privacy a complete getaway from everyone, or if you need to press the pause button this is the place to be. Very basic simple accommodations in the middle of the jungle on a mountain right next to a waterfall, you can hear the water rushing from your bungalow. The spirits of nature will be working on you. Keep in mind this is the jungle and you will not be alone at night in your hut be prepared to see some very large discovery channel lizards and rats and they make alot of noise. There were nights I had to take natural sleeping pills. The bed is hard, made my neck stiff for the first couple of nights but my body got use to it. But after traveling around Thailand hard beds seem to be the standard even in luxury hotels. Bring your mosquito spray or oils because the mosquitoes are thriving. Staying at the bungalow was really relaxing and grounding. I felt layers of ego being shed off of me, my mind was more clear in making decisions. Like I said the nature spirits will be working on you. Khao Raa Bungalows is also a great place if your a leader and want to hold spiritual retreats here. The owner is a really nice women, very welcoming speaks good English. So, have a great time, enjoy yourself I highly recommend this special place.

We had a roughy start in these cabins but it still ended up being quite a nice stay. We didn't have a fan for the first three days until we had to go and ask for one, despite the add saying it had a fan. The first cabin had rats and when we told the staff they did not seem very concerned as the rats were "not there to hurt you" but we did move to another one of their bungalows. The second one did have a lizard infestation but they weren't that bad, just the smell at times, but they were hours of entertainment when we watched them eat all the moths around the lamp at night. The place did look exactly like the pictures and it was all gorgeous. The only other thing was the road going up to the bungalows was quite tricky (especially at night or after it rained, or both is suppose). In the end it did end up being a very nice place to relax and hang out, and the island is amazing, amazing beaches, shops, and great people.

We loved our stay at this amazing place. It's one of the most magical places we've ever been! We only booked four days but ended up staying eleven. Pee Mee took great care of us. She's a great cook and she also invited us over for a familie diner. We got great advice on how to get around the island and she took care of everything (transport, scooter rental, etc.). We made great friends and were sad we had to leave and we're definitely coming back!

The place is really nice. If you are looking for a relaxing, remote location, right in the middle of the nature, this is the place to stay. Really good food in the restaurant as well, and not expensive. Since it's in the woods, it can be tricky to get there the first time, especially if you try it on your own, after dark. The contact number we had was not available, probably because Zia was out of the country. Pee Mee was really helpfull.
