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.

Kao ra is the best hidden gem on Koh pahngan, and also has the best cook on the island. It is beautiful scenery in all directions and Pee-Mee and friends became family as well as people from all over the world that come to visit. No complaints 10/10 :)

This is definitely an unforgettable place! The spot is great if you want to be in the jungle/woods. There's all the essentials-but of you're looking for wifi, hot shower, and aircon it might not be for you. The directions were my only pitfall, and it's my own fault I didn't know there were two ports on the island. Definitely recommend renting a scooter! I didn't meet Zia but she was helpful when I needed help finding the place, and the host family is very welcoming-and have great advice on beaches go see:) greatly recommended for a outdoorsy experience!

My experience was amazing, the place is so pacefull and beautifull in the midle of the jungle but not far to ko phang gan port (7 min by car) where you can find lots of restaurants, markets... The restaurant is open and really beautiful,it has really good food and incredible views of the jungle and the sea. The apartments are clean and simple with a good bed. If you are looking for luxury this may not be your best option, but if you want a place you won´t forget you must go there! PD: The owner familly is the best of the place, they take care of us all time. Thanks very much!

Luxuriant, quiet and isolated place which we shall not forget! The first night is very destabilizing because the jungle resounds with 1000 rumours (plan wax ear plugs for those who are a light sleeper) and that the strange insects and any sizes are many. But bungalow are comfortables and we become used fast. The peace of mind of the place is really considerable. Pee Mee, the owner, contributes to the charm of the place a lot. Her cooking is delicious and cheap. She gives of good advices, takes care with reserving the releases and the rent of scooter, discusses warmly and is very helpful. The view of the restaurant, on the jungle and the sea is impregnable. Original and inescapable for all those who want to take out beaten integers !

This is a really special place, off the beaten path, tucked away in the jungle Hills. The hills are packed with banana, Durian, and coconut trees and lots of flower. We had a great time here relaxing and getting away from the more touristy parts of the island, In the evenings we swung in the hammocks and read while watching the sunset. Pee Mee, the owner, is a great hostess and cook. She cooks great home made Thai dishes and is a wealth of information which she generously shares. A really beautiful and warn environment. I hope to come back one day.
