The Bay lounge & Resort is a beautiful location with about 18 bungalows. My girlfriend and me stayed there for four nights and had a really nice time. If you arrive in Thongsala or Haad Rin you get a free pick up or if you leave to the piers, also if you stay there you get a free lift two times a day to the two cities mentioned above. The first is at 1 pm and the second at 8 pm.
The breakfast is excellent and delicious. You can choose between lots of different things, mark on a card what you would like or not.
The staff is incredibly friendly and lovely as the owners.
The restaurant is about 10 meters from the sea where you can take your breakfast, lunch or dinner with seafew.
We just arrived from Bangkok in Haad Rin ( travel guides say it's the most beautiful beach on the island. I didn' like Haad Rins beach because it was like Mallorca for Germans or Bali for Australians, a lot of partypeople and absolutely no nice Resorts and than we found the Bay lounge.) and wanted to have a nice and relaxed end-of-holidays time and so we did.
With it's private beach the Bay Lounge & Resort is perfect to relax. At the beach you can get a canoe, a beachvolleyball or snorkling equipment for free.
If you like snorkeling or swimming you can do both at the private beach, because about 50 meters away from the beach is a reef.
For free was also our upgrade we got from a normal bungalow to a beachfront bungalow, because no normal one was free anymore.
A minibar is available in every bungalow with a lot of drinks and snacks( to be true its not just a minibar, it's a big refrigeator filled with a lot of drinks).
On top of the refrigeator there are snacks and a modern sound system which is compatible to usb sticks, sd or mmc cards(there is already a usb stick with a lot of lounge music connected to it.
All in all my girlfriend and me are used to high german standards and thats what we found there.
We had a look to almost every Resort/Hotel along the shore but this one is our favourite and we recommend you to take your time-out there.
