Damian and Nadege met and fell in love with the island of Koh Phangan and have dedicated the last few years to making their dreams a reality. As you will see from the photos we are ready now to share this beautiful island with others. Having both been on the island some years with a good local knowledge of what the island has to offer we are sure we are in a great position to make this a memorable holiday. While we are on call and there is plenty of full service options we are also very happy to step back and allow our guests to enjoy the privacy of this stunning beach location.

Liked · When we arrived to the bungalow, our neighbor said "Welcome to Paradise". This could not be more true. The bungalow is a perfect place to relax for a few days or even weeks. There are 3 bungalows, all very private and located right on the beach. If you think the photos of the place looks nice, you're in for a surprise. It is probably the most beautiful location I have ever lived in, and I have visited over 80 countries in my life.

Nibbana is the perfection location and pictures do not do the views justice. There is a real attention to detail with coffee machine in room, free use of paddle boards & snorkel sets. There was opportunity to get a moped arranged by Nibbana for 250 baht per day. Tip was very helpful and arranged us a taxi upon our departure.

Amazing bungalow. It's just perfect. The pool, the location, the beach, the staff. Nice restaurant across the street. We had some problems with the lights, sometimes they didn't work for a few minutes, somehow the system is probably overwhelmed, but it wasn't really a big issue. Its was around full moon time and the staff advise sometime the eletric can loose power when it get busy.

Cute little place! Good location right in front of the ocean but bear in mind the tide can get very low at certain times and the beach becomes a nice walk away

The perfect get away Nibbana bungalow was the perfect relaxing place with your own terrace, pool and hammock. The views are just beautifull and the bungalow itself is very cosy. The host Thip is very friendly. We had 3 nights here, but wish we would have booked 7 nights. Phangan itself is not that big and 3 nights there is perfect, but Nibbana bungalow was the place you could stay for the whole day. There is also lots of good restaurants and bars just few min walking distance. Disliked · Only minus I would say is that we rent scooters through them and the helmets that came with the bikes were just more like riding helmet, too light for motorbikes. 3 nights · April 2023
