It's hard to describe the raw beauty of this place but I'm going to try my best. My wife and I decided to travel to Thailand (for our honeymoon), more specifically, Koh Phangan, because of the many awesome reviews about the beautiful beaches. Well, we truly chose the most beautiful villa ever. Ian, the villa owner, was very helpful in securing our reservation (we stayed 8 days) and he also made sure that he provided us with transportation options of which we chose to rent a sports utility vehicle (highly recommended).
The villa is absolutely gorgeous! It's located in the tropical forest and is also super close to the beach. We were in the middle of two paradises. The master bedroom is separated from the main house which gives ultimate privacy (if needed). And at night, the outside lights, which are perfectly placed around the house, create the perfect ambiance. The master bedroom and additional bedroom (in the main house) have air conditioning. When you're ready to cool down a bit, this will be much appreciated :). Not to mention, the pool is amazing as well! In addition, our grounds keeper, Coco, was the most helpful, kind-hearted person we've ever met. He came every day to clean the house and was VERY helpful with suggesting cool places to visit. Between Coco and Ian, we visited some of the most beautiful places on earth. And we ate some of the best Thai food.
We took the liberty to cook some of our own meals while staying in our home away from home. So we visited the local market about 30 minutes away in Thong Sala and purchased fresh veggies, curries, and fresh seafood and beef. My wife tried her best to mock the Thai way of cooking and she did a pretty good job. However, next time we visit, we'll take some cooking classes so that we can nail it lol :).
If you're wondering where to stay while in Thailand, please do not overlook this beautiful villa in the most gorgeous town, Koh Phangan. The people are super nice and the beaches are picture perfect!
Thanks Ian and Coco for such a wonderful honeymoon. We'll be back!!!!
