I stayed here during New Years 2013 for over a week and it was one of the most beautiful places I've been to so far. The accommodation is great, good food and lovely, lovely staff. It's a gem! The location of the resort is stunning, it has it's own private beach, clean and a backdrop of the trees and hills.... More

Now this is what I imagined Thailand to be like. Near deserted beaches, very friendly people, great food, relaxed atmosphere. We stayed in a small air con bungalow, which was lovely. It was about 10 steps from the beach. The staff were all really friendly and helpful, and their food was amazing. If you like really spicy food, I recommend... More

I stayed here for three days. Prices in the restaurant fluctuated daily depending on the waiter that served you. Always check your bill against the menu. I also have since found out that I was heavily overcharged for my accommodation compared to prices advertised on agoda, trip advisor and booking.com. The staff are very friendly and do try to help...

We stayed in an amazing cabana style bungalow, back up the hill over the bar with a veranda looking out over a beautiful bay, and what a sunset, what a view! The staff were great to deal with, even arranging our trip back to Krabi airport for an early flight.. Some things are a little rough around the edges, but... More

This is one of only a few secluded beaches on Koh Lanta, and is a great place to stay. We had an a/c room with a great view over the water. Room is basic but nice enough. Mattress could use an upgrade, but linens were clean and nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Restaurant could be improved - we... More

As we sit in reception waiting to go after a 3 day stay here, we are both sad to be leaving this amazing place. The staff are truly fantastic, in particular Noot, Gee, and Siam. They have made us feel special since the moment we arrived and are genuinely some of the nicest people we have met in Thailand. The... More

We stayed for 5 nights at Bamboo Bay in February 2013. We loved our room with view - it was an AC room, and this was a luxury for us as our previous accomodations were very basic fan rooms on Koh Jum. It is not fancy at all, it has that backpacker feel (or 'flashpacker' if you want) that gets... More

From the moment we arrived at Bamboo Bay I knew we would be looked after well when we were warmly greeted by Nook. The food is great, the rooms spacious and comfortable and the setting idyllic. All of the staff were helpful and friendly. I hope I get the chance to go back some day.

You can't beat the location, the beach is stunning and deserted. The restaurant and staff are also lovely. Unfortunately the rooms really aren't very nice ( we had a fan room). I've done a lot of travelling and I'm not usually bothered by rooms but I really didn't enjoy going back to this bungalow. With a bit of renovation this... More

Bamboo bay has the great location and beauful view. It’s far from everything (located on the last beach of island) so it's very peaceful. However, the room ,especially bathroom, is bad and need urgent renovation.
