For my daughter[:I] who wants to go to Ko Phangan for the New Year[}]
100 Island (name translated from Thai) is a surprislngly good. clean hotel, with nice rooms and good beds. We paid , I think, 650b in June, one of the best values.
Draw back it is not in a charming area, neverless quiet, situated vis-a-vis Tesco Lotus.
2 other options
1) is to get the night ferry to Phangan, leaves around 10-11pm, I have done it a few times to Samui, you get a matress to sleep on, and there is a direct ferry from Surat to Phangan.
2) other option is to stay the nite at Chumpon, then go via Koh Tao, I believe as mentioned on this board before, Chumpon is supposed to have the best disco in Thailand.
grin, John´s suggestion may have much more sex appeal to your daughter than a boring business hotel with good sleep probably guaranteed. I guess at her age sleep doesnt matter yet too much.
