Ban Nai Wok is a small village located on the west side of Koh Phangan. There are basic amenities in Ban Nai Wok with a limited number of houses to rent and long stay accommodation. There are also a number of resorts further along the beach which offer different types of accommodation from basic bungalows to slightly higher end accommodation and several villas available to rent for short stay and long stay holiday lets.
There are a couple of new Muay Thai schools that have opened here and so Ban Nai Wok is home to a number of Thai and expat residents. The popular Masons Arms is a slice of Hampshire in Koh Phangan and is a great place to grab a drink and a bite to eat in the beer garden. If you are after some pampering, the Pure Relax spa provides luxury massages, pedicures and manicures and receives consistently good feedback from its clients.
Its close proximity to Thong Sala makes Ban Nai Wok the ideal combination of peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle whilst being close enough to everything that Thong Sala has to offer.
Another reason that Ban Nai Wok is becoming increasingly popular is the fact that it is just a short walk from Ao Nai Wok stretch of beach. This beach has a selection of resorts, which offer some popular choices of accommodation. Walk to Thong Sala and the pier to stock up on supplies at the shops and markets and to revisit the hustle and bustle. It is also the best place to book tours and excursions around the rest of the island.
