There is a wide variety of accommodation options on Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thong Nai Pan Yai beaches. There still remain the cheaper beach bungalows but in many cases they have been upgraded to include bathrooms and air-con. There are hotel style rooms available at Panviman, Santhiya, Buri Rasa and Havana Resort. There are also luxury bungalows with private pools and jacuzzis at Rasananda, Panviman and Santhiya Resort.
There are a few mid-range options such as Thong Tapan Resort, Dreamland Resort, The Four Resort and Starlight Resort. Anantara Rasananda on Thong Nai Pan Noi is a collection of luxury 2 storey villas with swimming pools directly on the beach. It is the number 1 resort in Koh Phangan.
Over the past 5 or so years the focus of Thong Nai Pan has moved away from providing cheap places for backpackers to stay to providing more 'up-market' accommodation suitable for honeymooners and families. Thong Nai Pan Noi still has a good nightlife but the emphasis has moved away from regular parties. There are more bars for late night drinking in Thong Nai Pan Yai.
The roads in both Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thong Nai Pan Yai villages are concreted. Both villages have ATM machines, travel agents, shops, restaurants, bars and places to hire motorbikes. The road between Ban Tai and the Thong Nai Pan area is now completely paved. Furthermore, Koh Phangan Airport is due to be finished sometime in 2016.
It is hoped that with sensible management the Thong Nai Pan area will maintain its laid back, friendly atmosphere while at the same time modernising with a minimal impact to the environment.
