We stayed a week in the Tongsai Bay hotel. Friendly staff, unbelievable nature in the domain and the restaurants are good. I admire the respect the hotel shows to its environment. One of the best holidays in a long long time. Tip: try the local cocktails at the pool bar!

The last time we stayed here the weather was awful so we thought we would try again and this time it was perfect. This place is just beautiful. The gardens are well maintained and yet look natural, everything is absolutely spotless too. We stayed in a Seaview Cottage and were lucky enough to have one at the far end of... More

The photos can not prepare you for the beauty and tranquillity of this location & hotel. The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and in typical Thai nature they are constantly friendly & helpful. The whole ambiance and setting make this one of the most relaxing holidays I have ever had. If you want to come here to... More

The hotel is beautiful and well located. There is a private beach and great pools. The breakfast is pretty good and the service is flawless. Our stay at Tongsai was perfect and I'm pretty sure I will pick this hotel over and over again if I have the chance! I loved it!

Great place for vacation with family (with young kids). Very friendly staff - made a huge difference. Both restaurants made vegetarian food to order on request and had them on menu too. The sand on the beach is coarse though not smooth. The rooms or bungalows are nestled in a very natural environment. Only downside was need to take to... More

Recently returned from our 8th consecutive stay at Tongsai bay. I am pleased to say that standards are as good as ever. The management are professional, friendly and treat you on a personal basis but without being invasive, just superb. I must also thank all the staff, without exception. They can't do enough to make your holiday a pleasure with... More

What can I say about this magnificent place? In my opinion, words do not describe just how perfect this place actually is. Me and the newlywed wife stayed here for the 2nd leg of a 3 leg tour of Thailand...naturally, it was the wife's choice (which she gloats about). The service is exceptional. The waiting staff know what you want... More

We have recently stayed at the Tongsai Bay Resort for three fantastic nights. The resort has an Eco theme and has very beautiful gardens. The resort is in a private cove so the one resort is in the cove. This is a great place to stay where you can switch off and relax, let your mind chill, and enjoy the... More
