Tommy’s Resort Haad Rin: Where to Stay in Koh Phangan

Tommy’s Resort Haad Rin is part of the Reunion Tour Trip Report.

The first time I went to the full moon party I was en route to my study abroad program in Shanghai (see The Pointless Global MBA: Take 2 ). My father offered to pay for me to stay in my own bungalow with hot and cold water, a luxury for a backpacker. As an old lawyer, I came back twelve years later wondering how much these ‘luxury rooms’ right on Haad Rin Beach, home to the full moon party, cost.

Randomly, I selected Tommy’s Resort and was shocked to learn that it only cost $197 for four nights. That rate included breakfast. I found it funny that $197 was way beyond my means a few years ago.

TPOL’s TIP: I didn’t stay the night of the full moon party. That night is for amateurs (see Full Moon Party: 3 Times Wasn’t Enough. Maybe Once More?).


The room was a private bungalow. It had great Wi-Fi and crisp AC. It also had a nice patio.a walkway with a pond and trees and buildings with a pond and trees a path between buildings with trees and a body of water


There was hot water but it was not one of the best shower experiences in terms of pressure (see I Need a Shower: The Top 7 Spots to Lather Up).


I am typically not a fan of breakfast (see Free Breakfast?! The InterContinental Bora Bora Says No). But, wow, this basic breakfast rivaled many of the overpriced, overhyped breakfasts that bloggers overwrite about (see Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome: Overrated Breakfast).

You don’t come to Haad Rin for the pool. Nevertheless, there’s one if you are in need a quick dip. a pool with a deck chair and a building at night a pool with chairs and a building

Tommy’s on-site green curry was excellent.


There’s a bar right off the beach. We spent many hours drinking mojitos, daiquiris, and everything in between.


This is the place to say if you’re going to the Full Moon Party. If you are going for rest and relaxation and it’s not a full moon, this is a great place to stay.
