The rooms are very average and do not get cleaned daily. The toilet is where the shower is also. The beach is extremely shallow therefore you cannot swim in it. The hill is very steep and that is the only way to get to the resort. No cab driver would drop us off at the bottom, therefore we had to... More

The beach is nice, the food is pretty good but the rooms (although right on the beach) are small and dirty, with the toilet actually in the shower. Also, there is an incredibly steep road that is very poorly lit leading down to the resort. Most taxis won't even drive down the road and instead will drop you off at... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here with the promise of a great time but it was far from what we expected. Hotel staff really friendly but was quite useless to be honest, for the 4 night we was there not once was our room cleaned just water left out side. The room wasn't what we was expecting for a deluxe... More

Whilst this hotel lays on its own beautiful private beach and has a lovely restaurant and friendly staff, me and my partner found many problems with this hotel. The 'deluxe'room with a sea view was anything but deluxe, brown water came up through the toilet and through the taps (a problem that wasn't fixed for nearly 24 hours, with no... More

My first time in Ko Phangan, arriving in Haad Rin at Songkran... yikes! Our taxi driver took us to The Bay Resort and the madness was history. The Bay Resort has a beautiful, private beach, a small salt water pool, a great bar and restaurant, lovely rooms and brilliant staff. Thank you to Gary and his staff for overseeing our... More

Myself and my now husband, got married on 13 April 2015. We returned after staying there last year, as this was where Mark proposed. The resort is a hidden gem down a steep hill. We had 13 people including ourselves attending the wedding. Firstly we arrived and stayed in a variety of both the bungalows and beach front, all which... More

If your looking to spend some time away from everything and enjoy doing nothing this place is idea. Got a taxi from the pier for 200b each. No point in negotiations it's 200b each person on the islands. Taxi dropped us at the top of the hill and we carried 2 packpack down the steep hill. We're both quite active... More

This is a lovely small hotel set in its own grounds in complete piece and quiet. The staff jo Jo, Gary and all the others can not do enough for you. The food is very well priced and probably the best we had whilst in koh phangan, the chef is excellent and will add extra spice if required. The rooms... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at beachfront terrace when visited Koh Phangan. This resort offered shuttle service from pier, just need to contact the resort prior to your arrival. We loved the layout design of this hotel. With pool, facing the sea and just perfect to catch sunset here. The lounge foods and drinks were good tasted. They offered... More

This place is amazing! Its the only hotel that really have a private beach and no one walk through. This place will be magical for people that know how to enjoy nature. Amazing views. We stayed most of the time at the resort just enjoying the amazing food and the pool and the beach. The rooms are pretty standard and... More
