How to get to Ibiza House Phi Phi?
From Ao Tonsai Pier, you won’t have to walk long to this hostel. Thus, is pretty accessible. Furthermore, it is a beachfront property so you are only a few steps away from Ton Sai beach, and other top things to do on Phi Phi. It is also 2.5 km away from Long Beach so you can explore other beaches for different views of the sunset and sunrise. Ibiza House is also near a lot of restaurants and bars for you to explore. The place gets lively at night so better put on your sandals to do some night walking to enjoy the Phi Phi nightlife.
You have the option of checking into a dorm or a villa in Ibiza House. The villa is definitely better as it comes with free breakfast, a TV, and lockers. However, it is a bit more expensive than a dorm. You are going to have your own toilet too. The rooms are pretty spacious so you have a lot of space to move around when you decide to have a few people over.
As for the dorm, you are going to be there with other travelers so you are going to meet a lot of new people from different parts of the globe. There is nothing like sharing travel stories with new people each day. You are going to hear stories from new people all the time. The dorms have gotten a lot of complaints about being a bit dirty and not having any lockers.
You can expect the floors to be a bit wet since some guests came from the pool. Yes, better be careful as the floors can be a bit slippery at times. Some guests have complained that the air con is not on for the entire day. That is because Ibiza House does not leave the air conditioning one for the entire day as they leave it on for just a portion. Therefore, the dorms are for tourists who don’t plan on staying in their rooms for so long. Some people have complained about mosquitoes at night. That is pretty normal for a hotel located at a beach though so better put on something that will repel the pesky bugs.
The Ibiza House Phi Phi party hostel
Everyone is talking about the two pools this property has to offer. There is a pool that is exclusive to villa guests and this one is peaceful. It is called the Rawinanda pool and you can the crowd to be more of couples and families enjoying a short vacation.
The other one is Ibiza pool has pool parties three times a week with live DJs. Therefore, expect a lot of people who are looking to have a great time. The crowd there is more of backpackers and party goers who are keen on partying until the sun sets. There is a bar there where the drinks are more expensive than the other bars at the island. There are times when there are events at the pool and there are more people than usual.
There is a Thai restaurant there with awesome Thai food. When you go to a hotel, it would be a fantastic idea to try the local food. Ibiza House has some experienced chefs who are ready to whip up some awesome food. The restaurant also has a lot of food for you to choose from. You may even decide to come back the next day after sampling their yummy food.
Price per room at Ibiza House?
The price per night of the dorm is around $13 per night. That is pretty cheap for a place that is on an island and so many people to meet. On the other hand, a villa with a great view of the pool would cost around $138 per night. It is a pretty hefty amount indeed and you will immediately notice the difference between their hotel and hostel accommodation.
If you don’t mind paying that much, you will certainly enjoy your stay. Yes, they have not receive much complaints when it comes to their villa. As for the dorm, a lot of people have complained that they have a hard time sleeping at night. Due to the pool parties, you can hardly blame them. Included in the price is Free WiFi. Wherever you are in the property, you have WiFi access. However, the Internet tends to get slow due to the number of people trying to access it at the same time. If you really need to access the Internet, it would be better to do it early in the morning when everyone is still asleep from partying the other night.
The Ibiza House Phi Phi pool party
If you love a good pool party, then you’re going to have an awesome time at the Ibiza House pool party! This resort has just two pools, and one of them is used for one of the most epic and famous pool parties in Thailand,
If you want to join the pool party you can just turn up in your swimming trunks and get joined in! It’s free to enter the pool. But, of course, you will have to pay for drinks. I wouldn’t turn up without buying a drink.
Although, if you don’t want the noise all night, then I would book another hotel on Phi Phi nearby.
Ibiza House Services
The reception can arrange you an island hopping tour that will take you to islands like Monkey Beach. Better make sure to book a few days in advance though. During the island hopping tour, you’re going to kayak and snorkel so save a whole day for that. Also, don’t forget to bring your waterproof camera or your smartphone may get wet if that is the only thing you are going to bring. Currency exchange is also available for those who would need to change their money.
In addition, there is laundry service especially if you decided to extend your stay at this amazing place. The staff are very friendly here as they will always greet you with a smile on their faces. They would want nothing more than to help you with what you want to accomplish in your trip. They can also give recommendations when it comes to what to do and where to eat in the island.
There is also an option to have their staff fetch you at the pier. They are pretty helpful when it comes to helping you with your heavy luggage. It may be a short walk but it can become a long one if you are carrying your heavy luggage.
Phuket to Phi Phi House
You will have to get the Phuket to Phi Phi ferry if you want to stay at Ibiza House or do the pool party. However, the last ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi leaves the port at 3pm.
The best thing to do is to get the ferry over, and then stay on Phi Phi for 1 or 2 nights.
