Delightful Villa

Serenity lodge was a great stay in a well equipped and really comfortable villa.Pen and Lee who manage the villa were attentive and charming. The position is good but the sea view at low tide when there is no water is a little disappointing. Pen offers home cooked meals which were excellent but you do pay a premium of multiples of what you can eat for at the local very good restaurants. Also be aware of the laundry charges which are stated to be at no cost. A disappointment was not having the bathrooms cleaned on a daily basis.

A most excellent stay

We were a party of 11 friends (24-25yos) who came to Koh Phangan for just over a week's stay. We spent our days exploring the various facets of the island and chilling on beachs, evenings were spent partying at various places around the island. We wanted somewhere nice and comfortable to stay - Serenity Lodge definitely fulfilled that. Nice big house with lots of room for dining and just chilling out (huge living room and terraces). The air-con worked in all rooms and there are safety deposit boxes. The swimming pool is great for cooling down after a night out/morning after. The lodge also has a kayak which we took down to the bay (at foot of house) and would paddle around in. The villa also has wifi. Penny (the manager and chef at Serenity) was welcoming and very spirited - she came out with us one night(!) and also showed us our favourite local beach restaurant (went there everyday for brunch - delicious!). She is also on site all the time so can sort out problems, make bookings etc... The other staff were also very helpful - just stick the "please clean me" sign on your room door for cleaning. There aren't any self-cook facilities in the kitchen but you will not be cooking given local restaurant food is so good and cheap (we were always intending to eat out). There is a laundry and 7/11 nearby (walking distance). The villa's private beach is quite small and not really suitable for sunbathing but the bay is great - and some of the nicest beaches on the island are 5mins drive from the villa (our favourite was Koh Mae). For those going out to Haad Rin (full moon etc...) it is about a 30mins drive from the villa - Klaus (the driver) drove all 11 of us out there and it was quite fun in the back of Hilux in pre-party high-spirits. It's quite easy getting taxis back from Haad Rin and the other big party spots - they're readily available. You will need to sort out transport if you want to get around the island - we always went with Klaus, he was always reliable (promptly collected us from port on arrival), had good recommendations and good chat (a truly idiosyncratic individual!) We all had an awesome time on Koh Phangan - Serenity Lodge helped make our trip memorable. Would recommend to family and friends - and we would also book again if we ever manage to return.

Brilliant villa, loads of room and great view

Fantastic villa for a group of friends to stay in. Plenty of space to relax, by the pool, out on the balcony, in the living area. The villa manager was extremely helpful in helping us hire bikes. Highly recommend this one - it's fantastic and in a great location. Make sure you explore the island too - the beaches further than the touristy ones are GOLD!

Luxury stay for large group and great service.

The photos dont the place justice - the place is better than then the photos for once. A large group of 15 of us stayed in the Serenity Lodge & the chameleon bungalows before and after the full moon party - unfortunately we were only there for 3 nights. Lisa handled every enquiry within hours by email before arrival. We had transfer to & from the port included in the room rate. As its approx 15 minutes from Thong Sala port on average. Lee was brilliant when we got there - he was so helpful and informative - he knows his stuff. I have nothing but praise for the villa - , great views, brilliant space,remote& nice en suite bedrooms. Perfect getaway from the hustle & bustle of Thailand. It was perfect for us guys - as it was a break from being split in rooms and hotels on the rest of the trip & going out to clubs etc. There is a jacuzzi to the front and a pool to the back - The 7/11 shop is a 5/7 minute walk down the hill - where there's also a few bars and restaurants etc. The day after full moon party we used the steel drum bbq and preordered the meat from a street stall the day before full moon. They dropped off the meat & coal and we rolled out into the pool and had a day chilling by the pool. Which was a well needed rest from the full moon shenanigans. The full moon party - haad rin is a good drive [journey juice is required]- 30 mins - but there's loadsa taxis on the island on full moon night. We didn't have to wait for more then 60 seconds to flag one down. Lee gave us the best tip for getting back- the locals don't know Serenity Lodge - so remember Loyfah which all the locals know! Night after full moon we went to Haad Salad beach 5/10 mins taxi north which has a Reggae Bar with live band and chilled out vibe with seaviews. I know im correct in saying that all 15 of us from loved the Serenity Lodge. If in doubt - make an enquiry - you will see the prompt and simplicity of booking - as it will put your mind at rest - laying down the deposit and payments via secure payment aswel! Price wise - same as a hotel per person per night but with the luxury of having a massive lounge area/privacyviews/balcony all in one plot.

lives up to its name

Had a fantastic week long stay with new friends at Serenity. PROS: - away from the full-moon party shallow Koh Pangan Crowd - walking distance from Orion (an excellent vegan restaurant and yoga place) - 17 minutes away from Thong Sala Pier - the pool and jacuzzi are good alternatives for the beach - fantastic view of the beach - natural light makes the common areas cozy and breezy - friendly and helpful staff who will engage you in conversations - walking distance from a Family Mart in case you need to do some sunscreen or snacks run - fair value for money CONS: - you might find yourself turning on the AC 24/7 because the room doesn't really keep the cool air - you hear the footsteps of people on the second floor - lights in the rooms are too dim - the beach is rocky and can get really hot and humid - not too close to the city center - taxis don't usually pass by the area and will charge you a lot
