Oh my goodness! Not for the unfit - a very steep winding track to the resort on the beach- but worth the trek as taxis can only stop at the top! What a beautiful family and team there, especially 'Loy' and 'George' who are so helpful and kind. The food is probably the best I had in my entire fortnight... More

I have never dealt with staff who do not acknowledge they have guests, who roll their eyes and who pretend they do not hear you when you are speaking to them. We booked a four night stay at Bay Lounge for the full moon party in December. When we arrived we were literally the only guests on the resort, we... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during the full moon party on our honeymoon. Things started off good as we were picked up from the ferry port as arranged. We decided to come a night later than we booked as we were enjoying ko Samui and we had booked a beach front 'luxury' room. We told the hotel this and... More

We stayed 3 nights and found it very relaxing. The resort is very quiet and the bar/restaurant area is very nice. Sea is literally boshing up to the restaurant at high tide and sounded great in the evening. A private bit of beach, but the pool area is very very nice with a very clean pool, so we stayed there...

I stayed with my partner for 5 nights at the end of January. The location: If you don’t want to be surrounded by tourists, this place might work for you. There were a variety of guests staying… typical party types, quieter pseudo-spirituals, and a nice mix of heterosexual and gay couples. The resort never felt crowded, and privacy wasn’t really...

Perfect place to stay at for the full moon, its not in Haad Rin, but just outside. The hotel does a free taxi to the full moon and taxi's for good prices any other times. Taxi's back are easy to get and 100baht where ever you stay on the island. The hotel is in a amazing spot, the bay has... More

Stayed there for 7 nights in August 2013 and I have much to say. Let's begin with the pros: - the hotel is set in a beautiful location, where you'll enjoy beautiful sunsets - it's a boutique hotel with only 12 rooms. It makes you feel comfy if you don't like big resorts. - good beds Now the cons: -... More

We stayed at the Bay resort for three nights after staying just around the corner at the Coast hotel. Although the Coast was good and has some great reviews, in my opinion it does not offer the same feel or atmosphere as the Bay. The rooms are relatively basic but offer incredible views and have everything needed. It is true... More
