We didn't book through agencies, we contacted them directly by email, paid in cash upon arrival. They have sent AC car to pick us up from the ferryboat, and they drove us back when it was time to leave (all free of charge). I guess that staying here really depends on few factors. My boyfriend (41) and I (34) enjoyed... More

We booked a fan room. We were given one at the very top of the hill. The bathroom was not clean, toilet was blocked and door didn't close properly leaving a bit gap in between. Because it was extremely hot we just went to the reception and ask for a AC room. The women kindly showed us one next to... More

Me and my friend booked Bamboo bay over the internet and got very little information about the place. We arrived at Koh Lanta late at night and had trouble getting to Bamboo Bay because no tuk-tuk wanted to drive there. We didn't understand first but when we finally found a car that could drive us there we got it. The... More

This is a very old review (December 2004, not 2014) but I wanted to write because my sister and I stayed here for a wonderful week over Christmas, 2004. We had a tiny, very simple little bungalow on stilts, ate every day in the wonderful restaurant, and enjoyed daily massage. The private beach was beautifully quiet, but we still met... More

As a tourist in Thailand (especially on an island as popular as Koh Lanta) you'll be hard pressed to find a beach as secluded/private as the one at Bamboo Bay. It's on the very opposite end of the island from the ferry you'll arrive on and the entrace is white-knuckle steep. Don't rent a scooter out here unless you're experienced.... More

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
