15 Best Gay Hotels in Koh Phi Phi

HOTELS

Gay Popular Hotels in Koh Phi Phi

As with most small island party hubs, the nightlife in Koh Phi Phi is not particularly gay. There are no LGBT bars, clubs or beaches, but the overall vibe is welcoming and open-minded. You won’t find anything exclusively gay, but you also won’t struggle to make friends and have a good time.

Koh Phi Phi landed on the Thailand tourism map in the 90s, after being featured in the film The Beach. People from all over the world started flocking to Koh Phi Phi, seeking out the stunning natural vistas they had seen in the film. Nowadays, after decades of development, this group of islands is no longer the serene, remote paradise it once was, and the beach that started it all – Maya Beach – is now closed due to overtourism.

However, that doesn’t mean that Koh Phi Phi is not worth the visit. Many spots on the islands remain as beautiful and remote as they ever were, with most of the development focusing on the thin, central strip of land in Koh Phi Phi Don. And while you won’t find pristine stretches of untouched coastline in this area, you will find some of Thailand’s loudest, rowdiest, and liveliest island partying.

The central island, Koh Phi Phi Don, is the only one that is inhabited. You would think that having all the accommodation concentrated on one small island would mean you don’t have a lot of options, but you’d be very wrong. Every beach and bay in Phi Phi Don has its own distinct vibe, and many of them are separated by impenetrable jungle and rock. As a result, there are several areas that can only be accessed through longtail boat (or a relatively intense hike).

Due to this unique layout, visitors to Koh Phi Phi have a choice when they come to the island. Staying in a luxury resort and heading down to the main strip at night is not really an option (and neither is getting a longtail boat, since they don’t have any lighting). You either stay within walking distance of the central area around Ton Sai Bay, or you head out to a more remote corner of the island.

The former is for those who want to party, the latter for those who want to chill out in style. If you want a bit of both, you may want to consider booking two different hotel stays. This will allow you to observe both sides of the island and get the full Phi Phi experience.

In this list, we have included options in both styles, in and around the following areas of the island:

Ton Sai Bay

Ton Sai Bay is the “center” of Phi Phi Don. This small bay sits along a narrow stretch of land that concentrates most of the island’s tourism and party development, and it is where you will find the bulk of bars, cafes, shops, and restaurants. Unless you are staying in a remote resort with a private boat service, Ton Sai Pier is also where you will be arriving on the island.

Accommodation in Ton Sai Bay tends to be party-oriented. That said, there are a few high-end resorts in the area, as well as some quality mid-range options. If you do want to both party and relax, look for hotels that sit slightly outside the main party hub – places near the pier are good for this.

Loh Dalam Bay

Loh Dalam Bay sits opposite Ton Sai, on the northern side of the narrow part of Phi Phi Don. Both areas bleed into each other, since it’s only about a five-minute walk between the two bays.

Hotels on the western side of Loh Dalam Bay can be quieter, but the eastern part of the bay has one of the largest (and loudest) groups of beach bars and nightly parties. If you’re in town to party, look for hostels in this part of the island – you’re guaranteed a good night out.

Hat Laem Thong

Hat Laem Thong is known as one of Koh Phi Phi’s most beautiful and idyllic areas. It is home to some of the best luxury resorts on the island, each of which offers everything you need to keep you entertained during your stay.

This is necessary, since most hotels in Hat Laem Thong can only be accessed by boat. Do make sure to count this into your budget, since you will have to pay (usually about 2000 THB each way) every time you want to go somewhere else on the island.

Long Beach

Long Beach offers a great compromise for travelers who want some freedom of movement, but also want a more peaceful beach experience than you would find in Ton Sai or Loh Dalam.

The beach is accessible by a 20-minute hike on a jungle path from Ton Sai. This means it’s easy to get around during the day, but – and this should go without saying – it’s not a viable option for going out at night. There are a few entertainment and dining options in Long Beach, but they are limited. However, the area does maintain a chilled-out, family-friendly, hippie feel that has been lost in many parts of the island, and accommodation options here tend to offer good value.

Hat Phak Nam

Want to get away from everything? Hat Phak Nam is the place for you. This tiny bay is especially quiet and remote, with only a couple of low-key, eco-friendly resorts and a small fishing village. Perfect for nature lovers and those looking for a real piece of remote island life.

This beautiful Hat Laem Thong resort is designed to make you forget the rest of the world. It sits along a pristine, powdery-white private stretch of beach, fringed by palm trees and facing the stunning blue expanse of the Andaman sea. Like most resorts in this part of the island, it is completely remote, accessible only by boat, placing you worlds away from the rowdy nightlife in Ton Sai.

All the rooms are modern and elegant, combining dark polished woods with comfortable furnishings. However, if you’re going to enjoy Phi Phi in style, you might as well go all out. Opt for a private beachfront bungalow to wake up every morning with the sound of the waves, or book one of the new hilltop Ocean Sunset Villas. These come with your own pool and a deck from which you can enjoy the best sunsets on the island in complete privacy.

There are three pools to choose from, including two gorgeous infinity pools, as well as a range of activities to keep you busy during the day such as yoga, Thai cooking classes, and Muay Thai boxing. The resort can also help you discover the beauty of Phi Phi with experiences like diving, snorkelling, island hopping, and even fishing. If you like to keep up your workouts on vacation, there’s a compact but well-equipped gym sitting among the tropical gardens. Then, wind down with a massage, either in the spa or right on the beach.

You may not be able to get to the bars on the other side of the island, but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to do at night. The resort boasts several great bars and restaurants, from the low-key beachfront Mongthalay Bar to Cha Bah, where you can dine on fresh grilled seafood with your feet in the sand.

    If you can drag yourself away from your villa, you’ll find an exceptional spa, a swimming pool, fitness suite, and even a diving school offering PADI courses. In fact, the resort is perfect for those wanting to explore Phi Phi’s legendary reefs, since it specializes in organizing diving and snorkeling experiences for its guests.

    There are two restaurants onsite, both of an incredibly high standard. On the beachfront, Tocada specializes in Mediterranean cuisine, while Baxil serves up authentic Thai food set under a canopy of trees.

      P.P. Blue Sky Resort is less luxurious than some others on the list, but it’s a great option for those who want to enjoy Phi Phi’s more laid back side without breaking the bank. The location on Long Beach means you can enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere than you would in Ton Sai, while still being within walking distance from the bars and restaurants of central Phi Phi.

      Independently owned and run by a lovely team of staff, the resort is made up of 13 charming bungalows. They are all decorated in a soothing palette of white and blue and feature all the standard amenities. The beachside bungalows are a particularly good deal, offering sea views while still feeling private and secluded.

      The facilities are limited, but P.P. Blue Sky Resort can help you organize activities to keep you busy on the island. There is also some great snorkeling to be done directly on the resort beach, and equipment rental is available from reception.

        Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort is a sprawling 4.5-star resort on Laem Thong, featuring over 200 well-appointed bungalows and villas which blend traditional Thai elements like thatched roofs with clean, modern design.

        All the rooms are fairly spacious, but the Deluxe bungalows and the suites are especially generous. Unlike many resorts in the area which only offer accommodations for couples, Phi Phi Island Village has a small number of Family Bungalows that are perfect for small groups of friends. If you are, however, looking for a romantic getaway, you could do worse than the secluded hillside pool villa with its incredible views of the bay.

        Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort can organize activities throughout the area and even has its own PADI-certified diving center. If you just want to relax, you will enjoy the huge central pool or one of the smaller infinity ones, as well as the direct private beachfront access. Massages and other wellness treatments are offered in a serene beach pavillion, and several bars and cafes throughout the resort will keep you refreshed.

        Phi Phi Island Village is committed to sustainable tourism, running several conservation and education initiatives to preserve the island’s marine life. These include beach cleanups, mangrove plantings, and an on-site Marine Center to teach guests about local species.

          Located in tiny Phak Nam bay, this is as remote as it gets on Phi Phi. The accommodation is made up of stunning Thai-style island bungalows, featuring thatched pointed roofs and exclusively natural materials.

          The amenities are decidedly rustic: all the rooms are fan-only and do not have hot water (not that you are really likely to need it in this neck of the woods). There is an on-site beachfront restaurant serving authentic Thai and Western cuisine, and Thai massages are available. This is very much a place for getting away from everything, with the beauty of the Andaman coast doing most of the entertainment.

          As always, Phi Phi Relax Beach Resort can help you plan some activities around the island. In particular, it offers some great fishing packages, which include the opportunity to cook your catches right on the boat.

            This spot on Ton Sai bay is a gay Koh Phi Phi hotel favorite for the party crowd. It benefits from a great central location, while still being large and secluded enough that you can get a good night’s sleep if you want to.

            There is an excellent swimming pool, with plenty of room for everyone and lovely views of the beach. Meanwhile, several bars provide the poolside refreshments and make it easy to meet fellow travelers before a night out.

            The rooms are basic and, at times, quite dated. Definitely go for a room with a sea view if you can get it. Generally speaking, Phi Phi Island Cabana Hotel is a good choice if you want to be able to stay near the party scene while still having some of the comforts of a large resort, but do not expect anything particularly fancy.

              This is another gay-friendly Koh Phi Phi hotel, popular with gay party visitors on a budget. The biggest draw of Phi Phi Hotel is its proximity to Ton Sai pier – it’s literally a couple of minutes from where you get off on the island to the front door of the hotel. Also, since the pier is slightly removed from most of the nightlife, the hotel doesn’t get too noisy, which means you do have the option to sleep if you’re not up for partying.

              Phi Phi Hotel is basic and a bit run down in places, but it is clean and comfortable. The rooms are spacious, and some of them have nice sea views. There is a decently-sized pool, although the beach is just a short walk away. The staff is excellent, super friendly and helpful no matter what you need. It is worth noting that the hotel does not have an elevator, so those with big bulky suitcases may want to look elsewhere.

                This Ton Sai resort manages to combine a party vibe with a more relaxed, grown-up resort atmosphere. Both the Deluxe rooms and the Pool Villas are spacious and stylish, with a simple contemporary design. The Pool Villas are an especially good choice, however, since the main pool closes at 7 pm most nights.

                PP Princess Resort has a great location close to plenty of bars and restaurants, and there is also a good selection of them on-site. There are two pools, one large central infinity pool and a smaller, quieter one. The bigger pool is home to a weekly pool party on Fridays, which is attended by people throughout the island and is a good place to meet new friends.

                  Sitting on a massive cliffside overlooking Ton Sai bay, Phi Phi Cliff Beach Resort is one of the newest hotels in Ton Sai, and one of the classier choices around. The hotel features plush and elegant design in its spacious rooms, most of which feature exceptional views. We particularly recommend the pool rooms, which give you direct access to the hotel’s infinity pool, as well as the beachfront rooms.

                  Phi Phi Cliff Beach Resort has limited facilities, but it’s only an easy 15-minute walk to Ton Sai pier and the local bars and restaurants. Since it’s a little bit removed from the main action, you are guaranteed a much quieter stay than you would get in a hotel in the center.

                  One particular quirk of Phi Phi Cliff Beach Resort is that there are quite a few monkeys in the area. While they are generally friendly, many guests have complained about the creatures coming into their rooms and stealing their food. In short – remember to lock your door!

The rooms are not always as well-maintained as you would hope, but they are clean and pleasant.

                      Since it is a little bit removed from the pier and the main hub of nightlife, Gypsy Sea View Resort presents very good value for money on the island. It goes without saying that, given the size of Koh Phi Phi, this still places you within very easy walking distance from everything you need – about a 10-15 minute walk from Ton Sai pier.

                      The hotel itself is nothing special – both the rooms and the bungalows feature very basic decor and could do with a refresh. If in doubt, the rooms are nicer but the bungalows give you some more privacy. However, it is a good option for cheap, convenient accommodation on the island, especially if you’re not the type to spend most of your vacation in the hotel.

                      There is a good-sized outdoor pool with plenty of loungers for when you do want to just chill out. Alternatively, it’s just a 3-minute walk to the nearest stretch of beach.

                        PP Charlie Beach Resort sits on the edge of Loh Dalam Bay, about a five minute walk from the bars, restaurants, and shops of Ton Sai Bay. This means it’s both convenient and quiet, perfect for those who want to party but also get some rest. It’s a 3-star resort with very good facilities, for a more modest price than some of the more upmarket hotels in the area.

                        The pool, in particular, is a big draw. It’s both large and well-designed, with plenty of lounger space (including Balinese beds that sit within the water itself) and a lovely view of Ton Sai Bay. Unlike many mid-range resorts in the area, the food at the on-site restaurant is genuinely good, especially the fantastic breakfast buffet.

                        The rooms are relatively basic, offering little in the way of design or amenities. Some of the cheaper categories of room can also be quite small and noisy – ask for a room far away from the hotel bar if possible. We recommend booking the Superior Double Room for more comfort.

                          Located along on a party-heavy stretch of beach just north of Loh Dalam Bay, this hotel is made for enjoying the Phi Phi nightlife. The area gets very loud at night (and the rooms have less-than-ideal soundproofing), so it’s very much not for those who want a quiet, peaceful experience. If, however, you just want somewhere pretty to nurse away the previous night’s hangover, this could be the place for you.

                          Indeed, the views from Cobble Beach Hotel are some of the best in the bay, something which the layout of the hotel very much takes advantage of. Whether you’re chilling by the pool or having some drinks at the bar, you can take in the bright blue Andaman sea and the green-topped limestone cliffs of Koh Phi Phi in all their glory. Then, at night, you can head out to one of the many bars and beach parties in the area, the bucket of vodka in hand.

                          The accommodation itself is very simple, made up of basic rooms and bungalows. It does, however, provide good value for money if you are on the island to party. Make sure you get in touch with the hotel to arrange pick-up from the pier, as the hotel is up a steep hill (a porter carries your luggage for you) and can be hard to find.

                            A popular Koh Phi Phi party hotel, Ibiza House offers both private and dorm accommodation right on the Loh Dalam beachfront. Private villas are also available to book, which come with more space and access to a second outdoor swimming pool.

                            The rooms are quite simple but comfortable. The dorms have individual safes for your belongings and come in a wide range of sizes. This means that a group of friends traveling together could book a whole room to themselves, depending on availability.

                            However, the main draw of Ibiza House is its party vibe. The hostel bar is always buzzing, which makes it easy to meet people, and there is a big all-day pool party every Wednesday and Sunday. Meanwhile, there are many other bars easily accessible along the bay, so you are never too far away from a beach party.

                              Stones is 100% a beach party hostel and makes no attempt to disguise it. There is a fire show every night, followed by drinking games and partying, with music pumping past 2 AM. If you came to Koh Phi Phi to party, this is a great place to do it. If you came to Koh Phi Phi for literally anything else, it’s probably not the place for you.

                              Stones Bar Dorm Rooms Koh Phi Phi is located on the party-heavy part of Loh Dalam Bay. Aside from their own daily parties, there are plenty of bars a short walk away, as well as Ibiza House next door which hosts pool parties twice a week. During the day, you can enjoy the local beaches and take boat trips throughout the island – there is a long tail boat pier just seconds away from the hostel, and staff are on-hand to help you book your activities.

                              Stones Bar Hostel sits right on the beach, and the rest of the hostel is surrounded by lush greenery. The on-site restaurant serves good food in large portions, and there are convenience shops a very short walk away.

                              All the accommodation is dorm-style, and the beds could be a bit more comfortable. It’s also worth noting that, given the beachfront location, everything does tend to get very sandy. However, if you just want a convenient place to crash after a night of Thai beach partying, it very much does the trick.
