We stayed here in a large group of 10 friends. We got a bottle beach transfer taxi straight off the ferry and made our way to the resort! The ride was extremely bumpy and it almost felt like we were on an off road experience! (Perhaps arrive by boat, it's a lot smoother!) we stayed in one beach front hut... More

We stayed here with a family of 5 for 4 days. We were picked up by taxi from bottle beach resort at the pier from the Donsak Ferry. A bumpy ride, but the alternative boattaxi was not available after sunset. We stayed at one of the seasite bungalows. Do not expect luxury, but there is AC and warm water. Unfortunately... More

The bungalow we booked was right on the beach & whilst it was basic it was comfortable enough, with a large bed & huge bathroom/wet room (cold water only in the basic rooms, it was so hot we needed cold showers!).We were actually pleasantly surprised, as we paid very little for our 2 night, 3 day stay. Beautiful beach for... More

On first impressions, this resort is a dream. Accessed only by off-road or boat to the beach, stilted huts overlooking the sea, clear blue waters and pure white beach - it really blows your socks off! After about an hour or so, however, this postcard resort starts to fall apart. I booked the most basic hut for my stay as... More

We arrived by taxi boat which was a hidden extra cost but we booked the room cheaper non direct so why would there be a free pickup! Staff were friendly and the main young lady with the baby couldnt have been more helpful. The waiter did get orders wrong and spoke little english but maybe if most of us bothered... More

Stayed here in June 2013 after partying at Half Moon Party near Thongsala at other end of island. Needed a nice beach, somewhere quiet to recover and just mellow out. This place was awesome, had to take a songtow [truck taxi thing] across the island, then a small motor boat to this part of island as its REALLY hard to... More

You need to spend a bit more money in order to really make the most of this resort, it was apparent that the larger groups of people received far far much more attention then the couples! Our first room, the very basic room with just a fan, was brutal to say the least, the metal roof covered in leaves, let... More

I'm really surprised to read so many mixed reviews of Bottle Beach and this resort. I have just returned from my second visit in four years to Bottle Beach. It is the most stunning beach I have been to in Thailand and stepping out of a BB1 beach hut onto the beach is an experience you will rarely get in... More
