Me and my wife booked Rainbow because it looked a good location, right on beach and near to Hat rin where the full moon party is held but far enough away we wouldn't be effected by it should we retire before sunrise. I'd say it's the best place we have stayed out of 5 different venues accross thailand on our... More

Simply brilliant! There are some very obvious reasons why people keep returning to Rainbow. Firstly , Martin, Noy and their family are incredibly welcoming and attentive during your stay. Taking the time to talk to you in the restaurant, and make suggestions for things to do when you simply have to prise yourself off a lounger. Secondly, the rooms are... More

What a brilliant stay, everything was perfect. From arriving Martin, Noy and all the family make you feel very welcome, it's a very relaxed atmosphere and a great meeting point in the seated area which is the heart of the place. Great for chatting and everyone was so friendly and met some lovely people. The rooms are a good standard... More

Had a lovely aircon bungalow right on the beach, huge with two queen beds and the price is definitely the best value on the Island. The restaurant food was great, had a lovely Massaman there. The owners are relaxed and helpful, booked airport return which included transport to ferry port. Beautiful sunset view from the beach. The grounds were very... More

Generally we had a fine stay at rainbow bungalows. Let's face it, for the price, you are getting what you pay for. A very basic bungalow right on the beach. We opted to go cheap and had just a fan but this did the job for us, even with +30 temps. Shower and toilet was clean and worked. Small balcony... More

...that's what a fellow traveller said to us and it's the only bad thing we could say about this charming little retreat. We arrived there tired from a long journey, tired from the cold weather in Europe and tired from the hustle an bustle back home. We immediately felt the chill and relaxing atmosphere this place has. We loved every... More

Owner and his family was nice, they worked all the time to keep the place running. Price was great for the bungalow during the full moon party.... More

My husband and I decided on a last minute trip to Thailand. I contacted Martin via email just a couple weeks before our arrival and luckily snagged his last bungalow during peak season. Our communication and transaction was super easy. After spending 2 nights in the chaos of Samui we were so happy and pleasantly surprised to have scored a... More
