Nice place over all. Good location, 10 min walk from the full moon beach So still quite. Two kinds of rooms, I would recommend taking the better kind, its worth the difference. nice quiet beach in front of the hotel so you can escape the busy and crowded 'full moon' beach daily. Shower was a bit weak and beds hard, but we had a privat balcony with a hammock!


Great staff, great location, wifi was very slow unless you were right beside the office. Room not cleaned over 4 days but you could ask for a broom to get the sand out and toilet paper each day. The doors aren't really secure, even with own padlocks. A cheap screwdriver and 2 minutes and your in, but there were enough people around that it felt secure (During full moon). A22 doesn't have a sink/mirror. Well...It does but it's outside hidden around the corner by another bathroom.


We liked our stay at Charung. The staff was helpful and very kind to us. Laundry and a bikerentals were very easy to organize. Thank you so much once more. Sunsets are incredible just a few meters from the bungalows. Although, the doors of some appartments need to be fixed. Lock is merely a formality, when you are able to rip the door open. Even though the area is very safe :)

Staff were delightful, location great for full moon would be nice to have the bathroom cleaned every few days and the tap under the sink was leaking.

What I liked most about this place the location to the main party beach. It was a short 5min walk but far enough to get some quite sleep time. The accomodation was decent with good beds and bathroom - low flow shower heads were a downside. The staff were really friendly. Wifi was became worse the further away you got from the main office on the park side. Not much of an area so socialise except for a couple tables and chairs outside some rooms. Overall, the best price was here for new years.


Didn't return my key deposit when I checked out because they couldn't find they key for the safe, conveniently when I need to leave for the ferry, this along with the island as a whole are very good at running basic scams and plays on tourists, avoid Ko phagnan seriously.

The bungalows have a good location as the sunrise beach (where the Full Moon Party takes place) is not far away and it's quite. No hot shower!
