Great hotel! Loved my stay here. Will go back!
Lovely location - views of the sea from the rooms.
Pick a Love room with a jacuzzi - these were great!
Food wonderful, breakfast great.
Shuttle service provided was excellent.
Staff great - booked trips for us and were so helpful - always willing to take you up to your rooms on the golf buggies.
Very nice hotel at the perhaps most beautiful beach on Sanyo. Really worth staying at this amazing hotel. Clean rooms, great located and very caring staff. We came back after a week on phangan. Really recommendable - but see yourselves!

We stayed at the Dakanda for the duration of the full moon party. We chose the Dakanda because of cost and location not to close to the party but not to far about 15 - 20min tuk tuk ride location did not let us down was perfect. The staff were great one in-particular "Ozzie", Ozzie went above and beyond and organised our transport to and from party and anywhere else we wanted to go he new us individually by name (even what we drank), and gave us Hotel Business cards and his number if anything happened to us while at the party for people to contract.
The Hotel was great we stayed in garden Villas the pool was nice and clean and the ocean was beautiful, the staff would go out a few times a day (on tide change) and sweep up any seaweed / leaves of the sand so it was always very clean.
My 3 favourite things about the Dakanda was:
1st the service and kindness from the staff
2nd the fantastic aircon mixed with silence perfect for hangover cure
3rd eating each meal overlooking the ocean and listening to waves - cant wake up to anything better :)
DAKANDA - you will most certainly be seeing us again thank you for the great stay :)

What can I say - had a wonderful time - staff were great (especially the restaurant staff) - food was lovely, beach and pool both great.
I went to relax and do nothing - it was a great place for just that - I will be going again
