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

Had a fabulous time while I was here last May with my beach travellers group! Food, service, rooms and beach were great! Yoyo is a great guy! There is a lookout nearby- it is quite the hike but definitely worth it! Overall I had a great time and would return here in a heartbeat :)

I can not stress enough how bad this place is. The good reviewers are either high or have been paid off. The rooms are filthy, nothing works, the food is inedible, the staff are not interested, they do not stock cocktail drinks, the pool is filthy, the manager is an absolute joke. I lasted three days and left. I was... More

The only good thing: The staff tried their best to help us. Not the owner! They didn't charge us for the hoteltaxi to leave again. First of all we couldn't reach the beach by boat because the sea was too rough, the locals knew but the taxitriver took us anyway up north just to take us back again and charged... More

On paper Bottle beach 1 sounds fantastic, a cut off paradise to escape and unwind..."Float away to Paradise" they say, well unfortuantely this was not our experience. Initially we thought wow, everything looked great, friendly staff, they got our room ready for us early, welcome drink etc, then the cracks started to appear. We had booked 5 nights over new... More

Who is Yoyo? Well, Yoyo is just one of the great people you will meet at Bottle Beach. Coming from the crazy Bangkok, Bottle Beach showed us why Thailand really is the land of smiles. Everybody here was great, always helping us in whatever we needed. Now, for the bungalows. If you're city boys and girls, born and raised, like... More

What a mess. It's well documented that is it a 'bit of a trek' to actually reach the resort which wouldn't be a problem, but they only run a taxi service at particular times and the costs are hidden from this. Not sure where to start with the resort itself. The staff are all over the place and and nice... More
