Great unique experience on top of the hill, great food, great pool, lovely staff. You need a scooter to get around though. Felt like we were in a tree house, very novel experience. Lovely to enjoy Italian food as a change to Thai everyday!

Bamboo hideaway was our first meeting with Thailand, and we fell in love immidately. It is an idyllic, quiet and relaxing place. The hosts, Fransesca and Massimo, are friendly and dedicated to their work. The cambodian workers were also very nice. The restaurant had an relaxing atmosphere, and the food were excellent. After three nights we travelled further to Ko... More

A lovely Italian couple runs this quiet family hotel. A beautiful place a bit higher up, so no sand flies. No excessive luxury but all the basic comforts are in place and it has a sea view from our balcony. The Italian kitchen offers different dishes with fresh seafood regularly, while the Thai kitchen also is excellent. My children found... More

This was like staying in a well-appointed, well-staffed treehouse. The rooms, discrete bamboo huts of sorts, are rustic but smart and can be enjoyed with the windows all thrown open; or, for privacy, with everything closed up and the A/C running, you can curl up under the mosquito net with a laptop and browse TripAdvisor. Francesca, Massimo, their staff, and... More

We stayed at Bamboo Hideaway in February 2014. It is situated around 10 minutes by taxi from the two main piers. It is run by an Italian couple with the help of Cambodian staff (a bit strange considering the fact we were in Thailand!) The huts are constructed entirely of Bamboo and are quite quaint. Our main criticism is that... More

Francesca and Massimo are great hosts. The bungalows are as expected, relatively simple, but 100% bamboo as advertised. Feels a little strange if barefoot at first but you'll get used to it. The pool is very nice and good for chilling in the afternoon or at night. Although a bit "out of town" this is not a problem if you... More

This is a fantastic hotel on a beautiful island. The hotel is run by Francesca and Maximo and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel also has an Italian and Thai restaurant serving delicious good. The staff are very attentive and courteous. Each bungalow is set in a way not to overlook another. They are large and spotlessly clean. I... More

We are a Family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children, 2 and 5 years). The pool was good for our girls, and the italian food at bamboo hideaway was a (needed) change from the thai food.
