Lamai Beach / Hua Thanon are further down from the popular Chaweng Beach. It is generally quieter, with calmer waters and a more “chilled out” vibe at most of the resorts. BoPhut / Choeng Mon Beach are more laid-back than Chaweng and offers views of Koh Phangan.
This property is 15 minutes walk from the beach. Alpha Gentlemen’s Retreat (Gay Resort) in Chaweng features adults-only accommodation with a fitness centre, a terrace and a shared lounge. This hotel is always fun
