This is our second recent stay at Sandy Bay Bungalows, staying last July as part of a round the world trip we returned last week for 6 nights and I can honestly say the beachfront deluxe bungalows offer the best location and views of anywhere we have stayed in Thailand. Other aspects unfortunately stop this resort from being 'perfect' however... More

We had the weirdest experience here. Our room was decent - nothing fancy, but it was clean. The pool is amazing, but full of kids during the day. You can watch the sunset from the pool which is quite special. We didn't eat in the restaurant because of the way we were treated. The staff was not friendly and would... More

We didn't stay in the bungalows, but after trying all the other restaurants, we ended up eating here all the time. The staff is really friendly and we were really sad to say good bye... Thank you very much, we had a great time! Love u Danny ;-))) Kate and Lucie

Sandy Bay Bungalows was a great resort in an awesome location - far, far away from the madness of Haad Rin and the Full Moon Party activities. It has a great restaurant with delicious food and awesome fruit shakes. The pool is lovely, there's tonnes of loungers along the beach for hotel guests to use and a bar on the... More

The room was very much overpriced for what it was, very old and plain and the bathroom was not 'western' as it had been described (the toilet was western, you just had to shower over it.) However in saying that the room was comfortable with a nice balcony. Danny was great, a real asset to the hotel - he seemed... More

Sandy Bay Bungalows is one of the earliest resorts in the fantastic bay, family owened and with updated standards of the bungalows along the way. Was recomended by friends, who have been here several times, also for 3 months. Very nice sunsets over the bay, a very good barbecue with fresh fish and gigant scrimps every night, a good bar...

We just got back from an amazing trip to Thailand and we spent 4 nights at Sandy Bay. We were a group of five, with three in one bungalow and myself & my boyfriend in another. We had a great, basic bungalow right on the beach. Haad Yao is a beautiful, quiet beach that looks exactly like a postcard! There's... More

We stayed here for 5 days and had an absolute ball. The pool and beach area was awesome and the whole vibe was enjoyable. The staff are very friendly (Danny is a nutcase, in a good way) and assist with taxi's, tours, scooters, ferry's and much more, The food is great and reasonably priced, the burgers in particular are unreal...

Sandy Bay is located directly on the beach at Haad Yao giving guests fantastic access to the beach and the sea. You don't 'go' to the beach at Sandy Bay, you 'are' the beach at Sandy Bay! Rooms are clean and well maintained with daily sheet and towel changes which couldn't be nicer after a hard day in the sun.... More
