We hadn’t really thought about going to Koh Phangan, but after enjoying a few amazing days at Explorar Koh Samui, we were so impressed that we’ve decided to extend our adventure and explore their second location.

Explorar Koh Phangan is situated in the southern part of the island, renowned for the famous full moon party (which is just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel). Being an Adults Only Peacefulness destination, you’ll experience positive vibes, a prolonged happy hour by the pool, and DJ sunset sets.

Getting to the resort is a breeze if you’re coming from Koh Samui. Simply hop on a boat from Haad Rin Queen Ferry (with a fare of 200 Baht), and once you reach Haad Rin Pier, a complimentary shuttle will be waiting for you.

For those arriving from the mainland or Koh Tao and disembarking at Thongsala Pier, the hotel can help arrange transportation for your smooth transfer.


We chose the deluxe pool view room for our stay, and it didn’t disappoint. The room featured a spacious layout with a large, comfortable bed, a TV, a well-stocked mini bar, a wardrobe equipped with hangers and shelves, a secure safe, and a practical desk with a chair—covering all the essentials for a cosy stay.

The attached bathroom was well-appointed, featuring a roomy shower stocked with toiletries, a toilet, and a sink with a large mirror.

The real highlight, however, was the beautiful balcony. Furnished with a table and chair, it provided a captivating view of the pool and the sea, particularly breathtaking during the sunset.


The resort treated us to the ultimate experience with Koh Phangan’s best infinity pool, complemented by a spacious bar, comfy lounge chairs, and bean bags that we happily carried down to the beach, conveniently located just in front of the pool.

Lounging by the pool was a special treat, especially during the magical happy hour. The best part? We could grab our drinks directly from the pool, adding an extra touch of relaxation to our day. 


Just like at their sister location, the Oddysey restaurant here is a culinary gem, offering a delectable fusion of Authentic Mediterranean & Thai dishes, including mouth watering pizzas. The menu is quite extensive, ensuring that even if you decide to dine here every day, there’s always something new to try.

In the morning, kickstart your day with the amazing breakfast spread, where you can also order eggs and coffee just like you want it. 

Beyond the restaurant, Explorar enhances the dining experience with convenient room service, delivering the delightful flavours of Authentic Mediterranean cuisine and pizza straight to your doorstep. However, the pièce de résistance is the unique beach dinner experience, featuring a captivating setting and a carefully curated set menu. 


For the ultimate travel treat, don’t miss out on a spa day at Explorar, home to the best SPA in Koh Phangan, a haven for Modern Wellness. In the offer you can find amazing  treatments like rejuvenating Thai Oil Therapy, classic Thai massages, and mood-enhancing light therapy.

And for those who crave an active escape, their fully equipped gym awaits your workout cravings. It’s the perfect tandem – a day at the spa for serenity and a gym session to keep that adventurous spirit alive. 


At Explorar Koh Phangan, your stay is not just accommodation; it’s a collection of unique experiences that leave a lasting impression. If you find yourself on the island during the full moon, Explorar becomes the ultimate hub, seamlessly transitioning into a place where the party never stops, offering an immersive Full Moon Party experience right at your doorstep.

For those seeking a more tranquil retreat, the lush garden serves as the perfect backdrop for a yoga session. And if you’re inclined towards culinary or mixology pursuits, consider booking a Thai cooking class or, soon to be available, a mixology class. 

My time at Explorar Koh Phangan was absolutely amazing! The friendly staff made me feel right at home, and the best SPA in Koh Phangan provided the perfect modern wellness retreat. The amazing  infinity pool with beachside vibes was my go-to spot for relaxation, the deluxe pool view room was a cosy haven and dining at the Oddysey restaurant was a culinary adventure.  If you ever find yourself in Koh Phangan, make sure to stay here—trust me, you’ll love it!

I have collaborated with Explorar Koh Samui, and I want to clarify that all opinions expressed on this blog about the hotel are solely my own honest perspectives.
