“Another wonderful stay in this lovely resort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Another wonderful stay at Nang Thong Bay Resort. We were there 3 years ago (same time mid November) and I fell in love with it. At that time we couldn't get a beachfront bungalow, but this time we got one, and it was fantastic. It was really good especially for the kids (3.5 and 1.5 years old) as they enjoyed playing in the little garden in front of it. Good points:
• The staff is very friendly and very helpful.
• Booking very easily done straight with the hotel.
• Great value for money for a beach front resort.
• Their pick up and drop off service from/to airport is very efficient and worry free. Because of our 2 little kids we had lots of luggage. They picked us up with those people movers, a huge car only for us.
• The buggy ride up to the supermarket was really convenient and very helpful.
• Best beachfront bungalows are 103,104,105 and 106.
• Hotel location is very convenient, so close to the heart of town, restaurants, shops, supermarket, etc.

Points that NTBR1 could improve:
• Cots. We were given a cot that it was very unsafe. All the guards/sides were rusted. Very dangerous when a toddler's mouth is the same height as the guard. The mattress was not big enough to cover the gaps on the bottom, so when my son stood up holding the sides of the cot he fell in those gaps. Luckily I had taken with me a portable tent for the other child, but had to put the baby there, and the kid slept in our bed. One way NTBR1 could improve is investing in portable cots, they are better than the metal ones they have there.
• Massage tables in front of our bungalow was a turn off. That bungalow has the potential to be the best one in the resort, as it's the last one in the complex and it has more shade, but because the massage tables are opposite to it you lose a bit your privacy. If NTBR1 could move them to the restaurant side, this bungalow would definitely be the best one.
• These bungalows have a sort of outside shower, which is quite cool. However they are supposed to have a little inside garden next to it. But ours had just dead plants, it looked a bit barren. They could have maintained it a bit better.
• TV reception is bad. But they have a DVD player, in which I may have forgotten a child's dvd in it.
Overall, this is a fantastic place to spend a family holiday and if I could I'd go back every year.

Room Tip: Best beachfront bungalows 103,104,105 and 106

We have just spent 9 nights in Nang Thong Bay Resort and really loved it. We booked a family room for two people as we decided to go for an apartment and not a cottage for this length of time. The adjoining rooms and bathroom were spacious and the beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows and clean sheets every day. The bathroom was beautifully fitted, and we had plenty of towels (both bath and beach) changed daily. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay but the beach facing cottages looked absolutely gorgeous and were much better situated than our room. We faced the road that runs through the resort and it is quite noisy, even early in the morning.
TV reception was not good and there is very little to watch in English anyway. We could not use the closets as they smelled very musty. We were looking forward to unpacking after two weeks of travelling but had to continue living out of suitcases.
Another problem was the internet which was often non-existent in the room. The signal was weak and slow and intermittent. (We got a much stronger signal from the next door hotel). I mentioned this to reception and were told that that's the best there is and that the internet in the lobby is better.
We had a big cockroach in the room on the first night but it disappeared. This must be due to the high humidity rate and there's probably not much which can be done. Mosquitoes were not too bad but repellent is a must!
The air-conditioning in the room is excellent as are the ceiling fans. There are no phones in the room which was a bit inconvenient as we were quite far from the reception area.
The pool is lovely. Used it only twice as we usually used the beach. We didn't have much of a problem finding sunbeds but it is annoying that guests save sunbeds with towels and don't use them all day!
The restaurant has the most amazing view. It is right on the beach and the food is good, if a bit more expensive than other places in the area. We ate breakfast at the resort a few times but stocked up with fresh bread, jam, fruit and yogurt from the supermarket up the road. The room had a kettle but no tea or coffee. We would have been happy to pay a bit more and have an inclusive breakfast.
The staff were always pleasant and very friendly and the resort is very "laid back" and relaxing and conveniently located (a short walk to Bang la On town).
All in all, we loved it.

We first found NTBR1 in 2011 when staying at another resort in Khao Lak, we had a look around the grounds and beachfront bungalows and decided there and then that this is where we would stay next time. From the first email to Jist we knew that we had made the right choice, she was very efficient and helpful the whole time with all of my enqiries and booking
We arrived on a very wet evening on Oct 5th and had a very quick and friendly check in and finaly got to meet Jist who is just lovely. We were taken to our room, a beachfront bungalow in the golf buggy and shown into our lovely room. I was suprised at how big it was and it has everything you need, flatscreen tv, dvd player, personal safe,kettle tea/coffee, plenty of storage etc the outdoor shower is just awesome we loved it :)
The bed is very large and very comfortable, it was just great falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach, and what a lovely view to wake up to in the morning
The price of the rooms (which are very reasonable anyway) doesn't include breakfast but we would just order what we felt like on the day each morning and it was cooked fresh for us, so much better than buffet breakfast, and very reasonable prices too, great to sit there looking out over the lovely beach. You can walk up the street and eat elsewhere but we enjoyed sitting at their restaurant for breakfast and for the price and view who wouldn't? We also had a few meals here during the day and/or evening too and always had great meals, no complaints at all
All the staff were just wonderful, so friendly and couldn't do enough for us, the young guy would run us up to the hyw in the golf buggy when ever we wanted to go and also on a phone call from Nang Thong supermarket he would return to pick us up again.....service with a smile :)
The rooms were always made up and cleaned every morning by 10.30am with fresh linen every day, a better service than we have had in some of the big resorts
The pool is great and so relaxing looking out over the beach, plenty of sunbeds and pool bar service, great place for R&R and a few drinks
The location is excellent for shops and restaurants just a quick walk up to the hyw and you have more than enough choices there with it being located in the main town.
we got our laundry done for 50bhat kilo just down the road walking toward NTBR2, (opposite Seaview Resort) got it back next day all folded neatly and smelling beautiful
We loved our stay here and it wasn't long enough by far with only 8 nights, but we will be back for sure, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here :)
Thankyou and see you next time Jist and staff :)

Due to unforseen circumstances, I had to cut down my stay to four nights here, in a garden bungalow during the October "Green Season" at NZ$48 a night, as part celebration of my four score & ten. I would like to commend Manager, Khun Jist and her team, on the efficient handling of my medical emergency, which was speedily resolved, by a combination of them, Khao Lak Inter Clinic and Bangkok Hospital, Phuket ;- before letting me back to recover in this ideal spot, with the help of all, including the hotel electric shuttle vehicle driver. This place compares very well with anywhere and at these prices is on my future list. I appreciated the thoughtful and pleasant assistance of the resort.
Regards Gordon.

Stayed for 4 nights in a Beach Front Bungalow and wow just amazing. Low season rates worked out to be approximately Aus $50 a night which was just outstanding value for money. Nothing could beat the sound of waves crashing at night as you drifted off to sleep.

The rooms were good size with an outdoor shower which just added to the charm of this resort. All the bungalows had a verandah with chairs and small table where you could just relax and take in the views of the beach. Great position to watch the magnificient sunsets over a couple of cold ones.

Although the rates didn't include breakfast there were ample choices in the restaurant at resonable prices. Such a great way to start the day enjoying the beach view from your table. The restaurant also served a selection of fantastic meals throughout the day.

All staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The resort ran golf buggies free for hotel guests if they were feeling relaxed and didn't feel like a walk up to the street. Which was only a 5-10 minute walk up the road.

I highly recommend this resort, and have already booked to stay here again next March

We stayed at NTBR1 for 6 nights from 5-11 October. This was my 1st time to Khao Lak but certainly wont be my last, and I will be staying here again.
The resort itself is wonderful, quite and peaceful , lovely gardens, right on the beach.
We had a beach bungalow which in my opinion was the brest place to be, with direct views to the beach, nothing better than sitting on your balcony, listening to the waves, and watching the Sunset over the ocean.
The rooms are very spacious, we had 3 adults in one room and had plenty of space, and the outdoor shower is a fantistic idea .
Breakfast is not included in the room price, so you can either go up the road to one of the local eateries or just have it at the resort which is what we choose to do, you cant beat having breakfast by the beach. Prices were very good, you can choose what you want and only pay for what you want that way. Best thing is they make real coffee so it was a few Lattes for me each morning. The resturant was also really goood value for dinner, and we had a few there.
Location is fantastic, approx 300-400m from the highway, where you wll find the Nang Thong supermarket, heaps of cafes and little bars to frequent. You can either walk, or the hotel will take you up in there golf cart at any time. Infact they were fantastic, we even got one of the girls in the supermarket to call the hotel after we had done a shop and they came back up to pick us up, took us too our room, and carried all our groceries in for us!!! You cant ask for more than that.
All the staff were super friendly and helpful.
The pool and area around it is lovely as well.
Will certainly be back

We stayed at NTBR 1 for 8 nights from 6/10/13 to 14/10/13 in a Beach bungalow. It was my wife (53) & myself (49)

We were so glad we chose this resort, it is a nice quiet resort with beautiful grounds & although the beach is not great it is still ok. The weather wasn’t the best during our stay.
We loved our beach bungalow, listening to the waves at night & watching the beautiful sunsets when the sun was out. The bungalows have a good comfortable bed & has enough room in the bungalows. We also loved the out door shower. The pool area was also good.

The location is good, 5-10 minute walk up to the highway & if you ask the staff will drive you up in the golf buggies.On the highway in Nangthong there are plenty of options for restaraunts. The Nangthong supermarket on the highway is good for all your supplies. If you turn right when exiting resort there is a lovely little Café called Café Ó’for good coffee, some restaraunts & also a mini mart if you didn’t want to go up to highway.

We had breakfast at resort every morning & this was really good, the restaurant is on the little stream running thru resort & when the weather is good you can sit right on beach side.We ended up sharing breakfast as it was big enough. We also ate at the restaurant 3 or 4 times & all the meals we had were fantastic.

The staff are so friendly & nice & couldn’t do more for us, we loved them, & thank them for all of their services.

We can highly recommend this resort for anyone thinking of staying here.
