Stayed here with my partner for a couple of nights whilst travelling and glad we did! So welcoming and friendly, we were upgraded to a studio for free on arrival, even giving us breakfast vouchers which were not originally included in our reservation price! Beautiful resort in a beautiful setting. The food in the restaurant was also some of the... More

Milky Bay was one of the many hotels we stayed in during our month long vacation in Thailand and we are still talking about it! We went to Panghan for the Full Moon Party in July and wanted to stay close enough to the action but in a chilled place. This was perfect. Everything you need is just a few... More

We stayed at the Milky Bay 3 years ago and loved it that much we decided to stay there again in July this year. The staff are super friendly, happy and fun. The resort is clean, food is fantastic, cocktails are fab too, and it has its own private stretch of beach and a lovely swimming pool. It also has... More

We stayed here for one night at a villa which has 3 single beds. Hotel offers pick up from ferry and to the Half Moon Party. There is no wifi in the room itself, but wifi is available around the common area.

My girlfriend and I bagged a late deal on Milky Bay ready for our trip to the island for the Full Moon party in July and our three days here were amazing. Roughly halfway between the pier and Haad Rin, its location is ideal to not be in the heart of the Full Moon Party and the hotel ran transfers... More

We loved our stay here! On arrival we had a free transfer from the pier waiting for us. The resort is beautifully set right on the beach only about a 10 minute drive from the main pier. Very easy to use for the full moon party. They sorted everything from taxis to free body paint and cheap drinks. Extremely friendly... More

We stayed at the Milky Bay Resort for three nights and really enjoyed the experience. It is very comfortable for a budget priced resort. We were lucky to get a room there as we had just checked out of another resort that we had booked and paid for before we left home that was unsatisfactory. They sent transport to pick... More
