Usually chalets located right by the beach but this time it shook me to see it was built on top of rocks by the hills, it has got the most lovely views amongst chalets in Air Batang Jetty, even though right at the end but very accessible to everything u need within walking distance, keep it the way it is...

Someone wrote a review of Bamboo Hill Chalet here on Trip Advisor a couple of months ago with some very wise words: know your comfort level. This really sums up the place. Because if you can't live for a couple of days without hot water, a/c, reliable wifi, tv, etc, you might end up a bit disappointed. But if you... More

Bamboo Hill is a place i would recommend for both families and couples. Is a beautiful romantic place and the view is lovely both day and night! We had to boys at the age of 8 and 10 with us, and they loved the beach in front of the hut. They could run around and play, while us adults could... More

We love this place, no television, no hot water - this is a glorified hut but there is no better place to relax. This is our second year coming to Bamboo Hill & this time we brought a friend for our daughter as the chalets are so reasonably priced it was not an issue to get them one of their... More

I actually visited this place April of 2014. We were welcomed by the friendly staff. Well, the owner actually. I love the place because it's so private and I can just relax. I stayed at room #4 at the time and get to see a really beautiful sunrise. Amazing view really. Just can just snorkel by the beach. I'll definitely... More

Bamboo Hill is perfect if you're looking to shack up on the beach in a clean, affordable place. Make no mistake: it's no fancy resort with air conditioning or hot water. But it's cheap, it's well-run, the people are friendly and responsive, it's close enough to everything in ABC without being right smack in the middle of everything. Honestly, I... More

Me and my family have been to Bamboo hills over 5 times... We come back every time, simply because the place is great! It is defiantly not a luxury hotel, but that's exactly how I like it. It's down to earth, and is located almost right in the jungle. The feeling of being so calm is amazing. Would DEFIANTLY recommend.... More

one of the best place to dive and feel nature. cheap and really nice. every morning you wake up with monkeys on the roof, jumping and see the beautiful view on the hill looking to sea. staff are nice and friendly. have a rainforest behind. feel and live the nature in that beautiful island.

Hi all, I've been trying to get in touch with the owner to make a booking...anyone know a way of doing this? Really want to stay here this summer! Have tried emails and phone calls - I'm guessing closed for monsoon? Any advice would be very much appreciated!

We stayed in the top cottage on the highest level of the cliff in Oct. Although we climb a ladder like little monkeys to get in, It was a fantastic venue because we had the ocean breeze, ocean view and wildlife around us. It was the highlight of my accommodation around my trip through Singapore, Philippines and all of Malaysia.... More
