Baan Manali Resort – Koh Phangan
When would you like to stay?
In the magical island of Koh Phangan, Baan Manali Resort is a chic addition to the idyllic coastline of Nai-wok Bay. Only 14 secluded bungalows are located on the peaceful lagoon just a 10-minute walk from the authentic and welcoming village of Thongsala. Manali, free bird in Sanskrit, will open your heart and soul as soon as you walk into this tranquil beachfront resort. Each bungalow offer an elegant, unfussy design and homely feel with a direct view to the world’s famous sunsets. Guests are invited to hang out on their private terrace, enjoy a drink at the kokomo’s kitchen or just relax.Read More
I loved it here! I stayed here with a friend for 4 nights and the atmosphere is so relaxed. We spent most of our time relaxing in the terrace restaurant with fruit shakes and snacks. We ventured in to town a couple of times which is only a ten minute walk and also spent an afternoon on the beach in front of the bungalows. The resort is family run and employs local people. The owners Liat and Sebastian are always happy to offer advice and give tips on things to do. There is a deserted island opposite the resort which takes only 10 minutes by canoe. We didn’t get round to visiting but there is an abandoned restaurant there for exploring and another beach if you want to REALLY be away from the rest of the world. Highly recommended

This place is a gem! It occupies a perfect position, being right on the beach with a stunning infinity pool but only a short walk into the centre of Thongsala with all its shops and restaurants. The resort restaurant is great too though so you may well not to leave the comfort of your hammock for the duration of your stay. Very relaxing and definitely good value for money for such a lovely, well maintained resort.
