Whether you’re visiting Koh Phangan on a strict budget or want to spend a little more and stay somewhere truly beautiful, you’ll have no issues finding a hotel or resort that meets your needs on Koh Phangan.
Like nearby Koh Samui, the price for accommodation on Koh Phangan can vary depending on the time of year you visit. The high season, which lasts from late November until late February, generally has the highest accommodation rates.
During the low season, you’ll be able to find the same hotels for much less — often half as much, or less, as they would cost in the high season. Accommodation around Haad Rin can also jump up in price quite suddenly shortly before the famous Full Moon Party.
