Milky bay is an all round fantastic resort. The people truely are amazing (particularly win and Mai), the food is top class, fantastic facilities (great pool, badminton, pool table, table tennis) and beach at your doorstep. We stayed here during the full moon and it was ideal. It was away from the hustle and bustle of the party but still... More

The staff are everything and they create a happy positive atmosphere or not, and this rubs off on our guests so when you tell us you were thrilled with the friendliness and service we... More

Stayed here for 5 days around the full moon party. We wanted to be a reasonable distance from the full moon beach though and this resort is about 15 mins drive away. The resort has its own private beach too. We stayed in the cheapest bungalow but was ok, a little small but perfectly adequate. The restaurant serves excellent food... More

Had a very short but sweet stay at Milky Bay and it was great. The bungalows had everything we needed, the short walk to the beach was ideal and the staff were very friendly.

My partner and I recently stayed at Milky for two nights. We stumbled upon it while we were driving around on our scooter and it was pretty amazing from the get go, it's like you're walking into a lush bamboo rain forest filled with some very very happy staff members. We had the superior double room (hut) that sits away... More

Private beach, attentive and friendly staff and the owner is great fun too. Had an amazing time. Food is delicious. Unfortunately I didn't make it for breakfast but lunch and dinners were a treat. Staff are very helpful, booked tours and taxis for me and very reliable. Can't wait to go back!

Each "hotel room" is essentially a hut, but inside it's really comfortable - I'm glad we stayed here for the 4 days we were in Koh Pha Ngan. The restaurant and bar were open even during quiet times, with a BBQ in the evening, large variety of Thai and Western food, drinks, and breakfast. Reception was helpful at arranging excursions...
