“milky bay resort is delightful, the best in koh phangan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2010

i stayed at Milky Bay in feb 2010 for 3 nights. everything was perfect. my room was absolutely beautiful, this is a place you will certainly remember forever and want to come back to. one of the best places i have stayed and a highlight of my trip to Koh Phangan. the service is great and the atmosphere very relaxing and delightful. the friendly staff will bring you a cool drink to sip on the beach while you lounge on a beach chair and enjoy the famously beautiful sunsets and feel like there's nowhere else you'd rather be. also everything i tried from the menu was always excellent. although they do serve great Thai food, i would reccomend trying the Deluxe burger. being american i was raised eating burgers, but this thing is an expierience in itself. i dont know how they do it. their coconut shakes are also addictively delicious so,if you're going to Koh Phangan you will not want to pass up a chance to stay ay Milky Bay Resort. they also have easy taxi service to all the parties and events on the island. the owner is often there and will be glad to do anything he can to personally help you with anything you need, so don't hesitate to ask. i think all the staff seem to enjoy being helpful with any of your questions or needs. you will certainly enjoy your stay here. have a great trip.

We checked in for a month, well actually it was 5 weeks and were immediately upgraded to a deluxe studio at the same price. Initially we thought 5 weeks in the same resort would be a bit much, but to our surprise we could just not get enough of Milky Bay. The staff are super helpful and friendly and know exactly how to look after guests, the food was first class, with an authentic mix of Thai and Italian cuisine. The reception staff took care of all our requests, organising rental scooters, to ferry tickets, arranged a cooking class for us and even reserved accommodation in Koh Samui for me when I had to make an emergency trip to the hospital. The administration team were even willing to assist me with a number of business related requests. Would I go back to Milky Bay, of course I have already booked for April 2010.

Milky bay was a very enjoyable experience for us 4 travelling girls, we stayed here for 5 days in a fab villa for the full moon party, we had b & b which was also great! The location of the Milkybay is only 10 mins away from hadrin and about 20 mins to Salad beach, however the private beach we had was suitable enough! Mopeds were avaialable to us for 200 bhat per day..which was also an enjoyable experience! The staff are by far the nicest we have met and so happy! Only one thing i would say that is poor are the uniforms the staff have to wear - get rid of the boiler suits! Its a sin! :)

Thanks Milky bay for great stay!

The Scottish Girls.

I stayed 2 nights at the Milky Bay resort with the Half Moon party being our main purpose for the trip to Koh Phangan. The Half Moon party was a blast, the music and the location was great. Anyway, the resort had a nice layout and cool jungle atmosphere. The rooms were good enough and clean enough, no complaints. The amenities were nice which included the pool, restaurant and games (pool table, ping pong table, beach). The gym and the hot tub were closed due to renovations. I would recommend this resort since me and my wife did not want to leave after our 2 night stay and I would recemmond spending more time in Koh Phangan than Koh Samui. Had Rin beach has great bars and clubs, so be sure to check that out as well.
