“Nice place to relax in Koh Phangan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Me and 2 other friends only stayed here for a couple of nights, but it was really nice to just relax on the beach, by the pool, and not actually meet any other tourists!

The pool area itself is great, with comfortable loungers etc. Plus there is the perfect Thai beach a few steps away with amazingly clear water.

Food at the restaurant was average for a resort in Phangan of this price range. There are only a handful of resorts on Bottle Beach so finding a place for food doesn't take long.

We enjoyed sitting in the bar in the evening and playing some cards. If you are looking to party in Koh Phangan then Bottle Beach is not the place. If, however, you want a break from the partying on Koh Phangan, it's the perfect place!

This beach is beautiful and relaxing. Paradise views. The food here was pretty mediocre. The service was poor apart from the maitre di called chicken who was an absolute gem of a guy.
This resort is over priced as you have no where to go really.
It's nice don't get me wrong but could be much better for the prices they charge.

The most unpleasant experience ever. If you can avoid this place do it at all costs. Looks inviting from the beach, but AVOID! The beach is lovely though and the trip there with a taxi boat magical. The guy is a rather pudgy fellow with a hat. Very caniving :-(

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I wrote a review about my stay last April when I stayed in Bottle Beach 1. Last year I was charged THB 600 per night which is about the maximum it is worth.

I inquired about going back this year and the current rate is THB 1,200 per night. Although Bottle Beach is a very nice place the accommodation is certainly not worth THB 1,200 per night for a very basic wooden hut with only a fan and cold water! I believe that Bottle Beach 3 which is not in as good a position on the beach is still only charging THB 450 per night!

So in summary I would like to alter my previous comment to "Bottle Beach is one of my favourite places but not at today's prices!"

We stayed in the hotel and not the bungalows, if you want a chilled out stay on a beautiful beach then here is the place!! The rooms are large and very clean with a huge balcony or patio looking onto the beach. The restaurant has great food, and the staff really make it a great place! This place is away from all the madness of the north, I have never been anywhere else in Thailand that's so chilled!! If you don't like bumpy roads this may to be the place to stay but once you get there it's perfect!!

We had a fantastic welcome here and the staff were always friendly and fun, making it a really great experience. The food was fantastic and very reasonably priced so we chose to eat here most of the time at the beachfront restaurant. Would absolutely recommend this place.

A superbly run and managed low key beach paradise... get away from the madness of the north and head to this chilled, cut-off beach with excellent food and swimming. Definitely worth a trip but not a huge amount to do apart from swim, chill, eat and drink... perfect!
