Situated in the last bay at the southern end of Kho Lanta, Bamboo Bay is well placed to be a fabulous retreat. Sadly it's great location, beautifully designed bar and restaurant and friendly staff are marred by very neglected rooms. Ours was like a concrete boarding house, filthy bathroom in need a good scrub and imbued with a general air... More

This resort is awesome! Nice, big and clean rooms with an awesome view. The staff is very, very friendly and speaks good english. If you want to have party every day or do shopping trips, this resort is a little bit far away, so you need a scooter or something. But if you just want to relax - its perfect!

Just stayed at Bamboo for 6 nights and absolutely loved it! The bungalows all have breathtaking views of the bay below. We stayed in big bungalow #18 and the view was one of the best... But all the bungalows have amazing views. If you are thinking ´´hilton'´ then go elsewhere because obviously if you paid so little for a bungalow... More

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
