Q about Bandara Resort


I've read a couple of reviews that say there is a free shuttle bus between Bandara Resort and Chaweng although there is nothing on the hotel website to back this up... Anyone know if there is a shuttle bus and if it's free please?

the songthaew's are reasonable and a good way to get to Chaweng. I think there was a courtesy mini bus, but times were not necessarily great.

Hi Jumbo,

We returned from the Bandara a couple of weeks ago & didnt use the Free bus but this id the info that I had.

The hotel has a free shuttle to Chaweng twice a day, 1pm & 10pm they return from there at 1.30pm & 10.30pm.

We used songthaew's to get around as well as hiring a car for 2 days.

With songthaew's,They do a big loop between towns like a bus.You just start walking towards Chaweng and they come up behind you & beep there horn & if you want a lift you put your hand out.You negotiate a price & when you are ready to get off you press the buzzer on the roof

Cheers Mac

They'll tell you the price and you bargain from there.
