“Love to go back.................”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

Having been to Koh Phangan a few times, The Bay Lounge is the best place that I have stayed at. It is situated 10 minutes away from Haad Rin, in a private bay. The resort itself is quite beautiful, and meshed well with the surrounding environment. The rooms are simple, yet cozy, comes with a safe for valuables, a double bed, a mini fridge, a stereo and a USB with some chillout music. A nice touch.

The lounge itself is where we spent most of our time, a very open space with a bar and pool table. There are plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs, looking out at the Gulf of Thailand. It is the perfect place to watch the sunset, listening to nicely selected lounge music.

The food was fantastic ( my compliments to the chef ). Apparently the Saturday evening Buffet has gained quite the reputation, although we were not able to attend the feast.

The owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. If you are looking for a peaceful place to relax and chill, while being close enough to Haad Rin, this is the place for you.

we love this place! nice rooms, super pool,very tasty food @ restaurant/lounge.
the service is great and the people are all very helpful and friendly.
the free pickup/bring service is also a fantastic and necessary way to reach the resort.
with motorbike it is also possible, but the cement road down is a little tricky. if you rent a motorbike ask the stuff for the more easy sandy way!

every saturday is asian buffet. very good food @ fantastic Lounge.

we will come back!!! we enjoy our holiday @ baylounge resort. thanks for everything!!!

Let's say it this way .. i've never seen such a calm & perfect place for holiday with amazing sunset view. very good service & staff, perfect chef with amazing signature dishes, private beach which is more than important for me & also cool music at the lounge ..
also you can add a special buffet event held every saturday that you can experience all the good that you can get in bay lounge at one single night ..

cheers ! :)

This is a relatively new boutique hotel resort with just 17 rooms. You get the choice of ‘beach view’ rooms that are on the beach level or ‘sea view’ rooms that are up behind the pool on the hill. Arrival off the road is interesting. The approach road is so steep that you could fall off it, and taxis probably won’t want to take you down. However you can call the hotel for a lift – or if you make arrangements in advance they will have someone pick you up from town. The ‘lounge’ is the centrepiece of the resort – a big airy space with a pool table, bar and lots of comfy sofas all looking out over the private bay and beach. ‘Bay View Lounge’ does what it says on the tin! The rooms (we had a beach view one) are quite simple, but nicely done. There’s more-than-adequate air conditioning, a small fridge and a basic metal wardrobe with room safe. The bed is comfortable with good pillows. A nice touch is the small stereo (tip: it turns on with a power switch on the back at the right) that has a USB stick loaded with a selection of the hotel’s favourite chilled out tunes. Someone unscrupulous with a laptop might ‘borrow’ those as a souvenier…The service is good overall, and the room and ground staff always seem busy. However you may find yourself waiting for a cocktail a little longer than might seem necessary at times – and don’t be to surprised if what you get isn’t what you ordered. Saturday night is a good time to stay – they do a great all-you-can-eat buffet with two glasses of wine for a very decent price. And the food is a full selection of what the hotel’s rather good chef serves up off the main menu, so it’s a good way to decide what to order on later nights. Breakfast is OK. The French toast with honey is very nice here, and you do get plenty for your money. The coffee and tea idea of presenting you with a hot cup of water and a sachet of Nescafe or a teabag and a packet of creamer could do with revision though. A walk along the beach at low tide in the evening is a nice way of getting into town (about 30 minutes gentle stroll) and you can check out the locals digging in the sand for whatever it is they dig in the sand for. If you like dogs then the hotel has some great four-legged friends to keep you company too.
