We stayed 10 nights at the beginning of March and had the perfect holiday at Relax Bay! The bungalows are in a lovely, jungle setting, really pretty. We loved the fact that Relax Bay is nice and tucked away, not crowded. The beach is gorgeous, paradise! The sea is so nice and refreshing after a sunbathing session! The hotel restaurant... More

We stayed at Relax Bay for two periods in uor trip to Thailand, and it is no coincidence, that we wanted to come back. The place has a great vibe, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable, and we enjoyed hanging out in the cosy beach bar with fruity drinks and a cosy playlist. :) The... More

Relax bay is really what we werr looking for when we booked. Amazing location, a bit secluded, really nice and friendly staff, nice bungalows, great beach, very relaxed atmosphere. Our only disappointment was the restaurant, it is not at level with what Relax bay can offer. The Thai menu is kind of ok but the western menu is really not... More

Sorry about your disappointment in the Western menu. However, we use via Farang Food, a Cie in Phuket imported Italian Parmesan "Gran Panado'. And as far as it concerns the Palm oil: since beginning of this season, after having read the comments on palm oil in European food magazines we stopped the use of it and use the more expensive...

We just spent 12 days at Relax Bay, and it was really worthy. The bay is very beautiful and never crowded, even when it was fully booked, you always find a semi-deserted beach, and you can always have a spot just for yourself. If you walk a little bit further you can find completely desrted smaller bays. Beautiful landscape, just... More

It doesn’t have to be expensive to be good. We asked our travel agency – the crew at Andaman Sky – they did great work too ! if you could find a nice place to stay in Thailand for under 100 bucks per night. They recommended Relax Bay and we were happily surprised ( it may have helped that they... More

The hotel is set on a nice stretch of beach which when we where here 2 years ago was very private. Now a few more hotels have popped up but it did no spoil our positive experience.When we arrived we got uppgraded to a large bungalow with sea view because they had missed that we had boooked an AC-room. Nice!.... More

I loved it here and will stay here as often as I can! The hotel is on a very private beach which had no more than 12 people on it for the most part. No loungers or commercial beach life here, converted old longtail boats with palm leaf shelters and wooden beds were dotted around for beach lounging, other than... More

This was a nice resort. The island of Ko Lanta is a little rough around the edges and doesn't have a lot of luxury available so this was a great compromise. The rooms are clean and spacious. The property is right on the beach and makes great use of the semi private bay shared with another resort. There isn't anyone... More

Wow, Relax bay was everything i thought it was going to be and more! We stayed over the christmas for 6 nights. Every minute since we left Relax bay, we have talked about nothing but when we are going back. The hotel has it own private beach, that is much quieter and equally as beautiful as the much more touristy... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Relax bay is not your average hotel. If you look for a traditional hotel with AC, concrete walls and all amenities you can find in any deluxe hotel anywhere in the world. Well, we are not the place to be. Our rooms are Huts, spaced between 5 and 10 m from each other and set in a as Jungle-ish possible setting. There is almost no concrete and we constructed our bungalows under the trees. This means they are in the shade. Furthermore the grass-type roofs are overhanging and give protection against the sun and around the bungalows we planted flowers and plants to block out the sun. Shade means coolness but also darkness. Bamboo, a living natural product also soaks up the moisture in the air. We air the rooms, but they always smell a bit Bamboo-ish. They do not smell damp and not well kept, they smell natural.Our roofs are made from grass, so they disintegrate after a time. They are not as waterproof as concrete, or tar roofs. However they are much cooler. and they look much better. ... more   less
