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

We stayed in chalet 4 for 6 nights. This was very private and had amazing views of the bay. The room itself was nice , simple wooden chalet. Nice breeze when windows are open. Not too hot even with fan. Unfortunately bathroom could have been cleaner. Staff were all very nice and friendly. Helpful service when we needed anything. Abc... More

We stayed in Bamboo Hill for 6 nights at the most upper chalet (rooms 5 and 6). The view from that chalet was great. The guesthouse itself is very nice and the staff is extremely friendly so you really feel welcome. Wifi works ok (in reception area only) but the internet connection is quite bad everywhere on the island so... More

Lots of bugs, but thats to be expected in a jungle, has lots of gaps where bugs and lizards come in, so as long as you get on with them you'll be fine. Amazing location beautiful views from all the rooms and gives you an amazing island feel. The guys running it are lovely and very friendly. Had two young... More

Location was perfect, at the very end of Air Batang Bay. Quiet and calm, you had the nature all to yourself. Saw some monkeys and alligators passed by, as long as you don't feed them, it's fine. We stayed 3 nights in Chalet 4, the view facing the sea was amazing. Had to do a bit of walking and stair-climbing... More
