Great location

"Definately the best resort and restaurant on this beach. really beautiful place and friendly staff.

We thought that the bungalows were quite simple (it didn't feel very Thai and had no TV. Fridge only worked when key was inserted). cleaning of room was poor, especially of the bathroom. Also, towels were only changed every two days. We also had quite a selection of insects in the bungalow. Sunbeds need cushions as they are quite hard and there are no beach towels.

BUT we really liked the owner (free pickup from ferry), staff and the location.Food was fantastic, we didn't want to eat anywhere else and this was definately the best place on this beach (believe me, we tried to at other places, but it was horrible and bad service).

I would suggest this to people who want some lazy days on the beach and total tranquillity.

A small paradise

"Before coming to Ko Phangan, we visited almost all the resort websites offering typical bungalows on the beach and hesitated between a few ones.

Finally we chosed Blue Ocean Garden resort and hoped we would not be disappointed as pictures can show only a part of reality...

Arriving at the resort, we discovered a real paradise where we found 10 nice separate bungalows, located in a very well kept and nice garden, directly on a beautiful, quiet and clean beach.

(I insist on this point as after visiting the other places we had hesitated with, we found out that many resorts have in fact 1 aisle going to the beach (no real garden) and bungalow are really too close one from the other one)

We had booked a Bungalows Deluxe and inside speaking, it was very cosy. The room was so close to the beach that we had each night the waves melody !

The ocean was so warm with its 30°c that we could spend hours, snorkling and walking on the beach. I forget another advantage : at 5mn walk on the beach, we also found the diving club Haad Yao Divers, who proposes dives and snorkling.

Food speaking, as asian food addicts , we are used to eat Thai / Chinese in lot of excellent restaurants in Geneva and its french border.

We tested different places on the island.

Re. BBQ on the beach, we enjoyed Haad Yao beach BBQ restaurants, but gastronomy speaking, we did not find a restaurant as good as the Dolce Vita.

The Chief cooker Mr. A could easily work in a 4 stars here. Excellent tastes and flavours.

As far as the team is concerned, Phaeng and Luciano have been very welcoming and F and Sai servers were really kind and smiling.

To sum up, we spent 2 wonderful weeks there and just dream of flying back to Blue Ocean Garden.

"We booked to stay here for four nights for the full moon party and extended our stay by an extra two nights, and were very sad to leave. As we were coming from Samui, Luciano collected us and our luggage from Thongsala pier. We stayed in the standard bungalows which were a stones throw from the beautiful tranquil beach. The room was spotlessly clean and perfect for us. The hotel restaurant was fantastic and we ate there every night except Tuesday when it is closed. We ate both the Thai and Italian food, and of course the delicious Coconut shakes!!! The waiting staff we wonderful, always helpful and smiling. The reception staff were always at hand to offer advice. We also rented kayaks from the hotel which was great fun. We also used to beautiful attached spa which is very good value and has a beautiful setting and view.

We would highly recommend this friendly and tranquil resort for couples who wish to escape the madness of Had Rin! It is however very easy to get to the full moon party, its about 200 baht and 35mins by taxi if you want to drop by the party!

The epitome of tropical tranquility

"From the moment Luciano collected us from the harbour we knew we had found a special place. Everything was exactly what we had been searching for, a beautiful and pristine sea front bungalow, an exquisitely located restaurant with an excellent menu (italian and thai) all set in a well maintained tropical garden.

We had initially intended on staying only 2 nights, but within hours of settling in we extended our stay by another 4 days. The team at BlueOceanGardens were friendly and helpful but not intrusive and the resident cat made us feel at home!

With Wi-Fi reception on the beach I was able to sit in the shade of a coconut palm and complete some long overdue office work, with the occasional interruption for a refreshing fruit shake.

With such a relaxing location it would have been a travesty not to partake in some of the spa treatments on offer at the Blueoceangarden beach massage hideaway, and I sampled a few. Although the traditional treatments can be quite painful,(especially the deep tissue massage) they all leave you feeling on top of the world and ready for a balmy evening on the beach front restaurant, eating seafood, drinking thai rum with the sea lapping on the shore just metres away.

All in all, BlueOceanGardens were my ideology of a tropical paradise and I wouldnt hesitate in recomending it to anybody looking to chill out, relax and catch some sun at one of the finest places in Thailand.

Just perfect

"I stayed for 3 nights. New structure, well furnished, very nice and clean rooms. Italian management with the best food on the island (thai & italian). Luciano is more then the resort management, is a guide and a person in which you can trust for advices and all you need on Ko Phangan. If you are planning to visit Ko Phangan you can't miss Blue Ocean Garden and ask for an Iced Fruit will be an experience!!!"

wonderful place!!!

"We visited this beach because we looked for a Bungalow. Last year we found Seethanu Resort which is right beside and that time Blue Ocean was not yet reopened. But when we saw The Blue Ocean Resort we did not want to stay at any other place. The green garden is just wonderful with those thai salas in the middle and the Bunglaows all offer seaview.

The Bungalows are really big and have open bathroom. The management is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very romantic and the italian food is really good, as well as the thai food. The owner picked us up at Haad Yao and the lady from the reception drove us to the Pier without charging anything!

I could not stop looking at this amazing beach which is really the best part at Blue Ocean. The only thing that was missing was a table on the Veranda and maybe breakfast. But they are still in the very beginning and do have only one cook. But there are some places on the beach where you can go, like Sunset Cove or Seaflower Resort.

When we go back to Phangan we will stay there for sure!

all you need!

"i found the ressort just by accident. originally, i planned to stay for 3 days but i ended up spending my whole vacation there.

the ressort is special, because the bungalows are just at the 'borders' of the area. all other ressorts there try to optimize the space for rooms but blue ocean garden has really a beautiful garden which is treated with care. it is a very calm place right on the sea side with its own (but publically accessable) beach. even when the ressort is booked out it is not crowded at all.

the staff there is very reliable, polite and always helpful.

the bungalows are very clean. the whole ressort appeared to me as a perfect fusion of italian design approach based on thai culture - probably the output of the two persons running the ressort (italian/thai).

besides the always fresh fruit shakes (i strongly recommend the coconut milk shake!!!) the restaurant offers a phantastic range of original thai AND italian food. (you get pasta everywhere there - but it never tastes like italian pasta ...) that was one of the most amazing experiences. but be warned: i really gained weight!

i had a phantastic time there. i was looking for a simple but high quality vacation directly on the sea-side, an affordable high-end vacation place WITHOUT a tv-set and directly on a lovely beach. well, i have found it.

A Heavenly Place!

"If you're looking for a bit of heaven then Blue Ocean is the place for you.

My husband and I and another couple stayed at Blue Ocean for 5 nights and loved every minute of it. The setting of the place is magnificent - located at the end of the bay, on the water with a gorgeous white-sand beach, the grounds are very lush and the resort is built stylishly from dark wood. The Bungalows are nicely sized, clean and esthetic. We had a beautiful view of the water and it was lovely sleeping at night with the a/c on AND the window open while hearing the sound of the waves!!!

The resort has its own restaurant, La Dolce Vita, and it's fantastic - we tried just about everything on the menu and it was great.

The resort's spa is located right on the waterfront. Don't skip the Royal Thai Massage!

To top it all, Luciano, the owner of the place, goes out of his way to accomodate his guests needs. His Italian touch to the place is very much detected and aprreciated and gives the place an edge. He really made sure we had a great time!

Bottom line - if you're looking for tranquility, for a comfortable and beautiful get-away - Blue Ocean is where you should go.
