Baan Panburi provides an excellent range of up-market budget accommodation on the island. Situated on the north east corner of Koh Phangan, it is called Thong Nai Pan Yai; white sand, crystal clear waters and lots of coconut trees. Natural beauty and cleanliness have been blended with simple huts to create an idyllic paradise for young and seasoned travelers alike.
Thong Nai Pan Yai is a beautiful long white sandy beach and the bay is deep which means that it is excellent for swimming all year around. There is little to see in the way of marine life, but there are some decent waves for body surfing.
The resort has a wide-range of island style huts to suit most needs and budgets. There are huts and bures. Bures is the word for island cottage made of local wooden materials. Here it is made of bamboo panel walls, palm leave roof with wooden floor, rustic and picturesque in appearance. The Bures also come with hot water. Island hut is a slightly smaller and less detail version, both are cleanly kept. The island huts do not have hot water. Ceiling fan is provided as well as mosquito net to cover the bed at night. A very rustic and wonderful experience to spend time here and guaranteed one would not want to leave when the time comes.
It is the perfect place to hang in a hammock on the balcony, with a scenic sea view and spend lazy time reading or taking naps.
The north east coast has a mountainous landscape which is far more rugged than the rest of the island and its uncultivated slopes are the most part original tropical rainforest, an untouched haven for wildlife. There are several impressive waterfalls to visit, Thaan Sadet National Park with is giant monitor lizards and a number of places experienced rock-climbing enthusiasts. A popular way to visit the local attractions and other beaches is by longtail boat.
