Garden View Villa at Sun Moon Star Resort and walk to Haad Yao Beach (West), Koh Phangan, Thailand.

What’s good?

Simple villa suitable if you don’t mind staying a couple of minutes stroll away from the main attraction in the area; Haad Yao Beach (West). Far from a fancy place but good enough for a night sleep and a fairly clean interior. The lady in the reception was the highlight as she was very welcoming, classically thai-style-friendly and helpful.

What’s not that good?

It’s kind of a budget feel so I would not recommend this resort if you are on a honeymoon. Perhaps on a backpacking-honeymoon in one of the rooms with a better view. The bed backrop had some kind of light that was broken, to me that is, while a minor detail, yet unacceptable and should be checked and fixed before any customer arrives. It’s a sign of disrespect I think. It’s a budget-style place but I think the price was 40% too high for what it was. Those dual-Glade-scent-things where also disturbing. I mean come on, you don’t expect to find stuff like Glade in a resort, it’s just weird.
