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.

A secret place yet within easy access to all beaches. A fabulous welcome from our host and hostess, and some of the best cuisine on the island. Delightful staff and beautiful accommodation made this a must re-visit destination. Cant speak highly enough of this holiday choice.

We stayed at the Bamboo for 5 days with my two daughters, husband and mother. It is a really nice place with a great view and clean bungalows made of bamboo. And there is a nice pool.

Bamboo Hide Away is a small resort with eight small cottages of bamboo on poles. There is no direct access to the sea or beach. The resort has a small swimmingpool. The cottages are very simple with no refrigerator or coffee maker. There are no closets in the cottages and the two seats are hard and uncomfortable. Breakfast is included... More

I stayed at Bamboo Hideway with my two sons and daughter in law and although the place itself is nice the problem really is that it is run by a couple almost single handedly so both myself and the boys felt that we were almost imposing on them by being there.

Owners are very friendly and attentive, lovely & peaceful place, great for taking a deep breath and just slowing down. We enjoyed our stay and the location was convenient. WiFi worked well in the rooms, overall a good experience.

Francesca & Massimo are most helpful and runs this small and very tastefully build out of bamboo resort with a friendly italian atmosphere. The kitchen is superb with Italian and thai on the menu. A lovely pool overlokking the sea together with Francescas readiness to drive you compensates for the poor quality of the local beach.

High on the hillside, but only a few minutes walk from the nearest beach resort, Bamboo Hideaway is exactly that. Made of bamboo and hidden away.
