“So nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We are a Family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children, 2 and 5 years). The pool was good for our girls, and the italian food at bamboo hideaway was a (needed) change from the thai food. Especially for the children. (You can still get thai food, at bamboo, so everyone was sastified.). The italian couple who runs the place were very helpful.

A secret place yet within easy access to all beaches. A fabulous welcome from our host and hostess, and some of the best cuisine on the island. Delightful staff and beautiful accommodation made this a must re-visit destination. Cant speak highly enough of this holiday choice.

We stayed at the Bamboo for 5 days with my two daughters, husband and mother. It is a really nice place with a great view and clean bungalows made of bamboo. And there is a nice pool. The Italian couple running the place are helpful, charming and accommodating. The Italian food is excellent and especially the home made cake. We really enjoyed our stay.

Bamboo Hide Away is a small resort with eight small cottages of bamboo on poles. There is no direct access to the sea or beach. The resort has a small swimmingpool. The cottages are very simple with no refrigerator or coffee maker. There are no closets in the cottages and the two seats are hard and uncomfortable. Breakfast is included but very simple and far too little. Lunch and dinner are also minimal and expensive. The forest in the area is cut down and has been replaced by yet another rubber plantation. The dirt road that leads to the resort was very bad and not passable for bicycle or moped. There is no street lighting and an evening stroll is therefore impossible.
All in all a bad experience.

Caro Jaap, grazie per esserti unito alla tua amica Ivonne per fare una seconda brutta recensione su di noi..... la prima evidentemente non vi bastava.
Venire in Thailandia con la coda dei monsoni è certamente irritabile, il nostro piccolo paradiso si trasforma, ma purtroppo questa non è Amsterdam! Nel nostro sito sono chiaramente scritti i servizi e con molte foto si può vedere come il nostro resort è fatto.
Per la colazione non ci sono limiti, avete avuto quello che avete chiesto... Le cene le avete passate tutte da noi eppure ci sono molti altri ristoranti e taxi per raggiungerli.. evidentemente avrete avuto i vostri motivi nel volere abbondante cibo e vino italiano in Thailandia :-)
Poichè avete esaurito le vostre recensioni non avremo altre occasioni per salutarvi, per cui vi inviamo i nostri auguri e saluti da Koh Mak.

I stayed at Bamboo Hideway with my two sons and daughter in law and although the place itself is nice the problem really is that it is run by a couple almost single handedly so both myself and the boys felt that we were almost imposing on them by being there. It really felt like you were invited guests in their home and as a result it was a bit awkward asking them for anything, and even impossible at times. One evening my bathroom door had been locked and when I went to look for them to open it at 9pm (ish) the bar was closed up and they were no where to be found so I basically had no use of the bathroom all night and had to use the loo in the bar area. Also they lock the fridges at night in the bar area so once they head of to bed, that's it and although I didn't want to party all night I would have enjoyed the facility to be able to order a drink later than 9pm!!
Another thing is that it is located very much off the beaten track and so please allow the cost of hiring motorbikes to use to get about as it is no where near a beach or even a small shop. The roads are pretty unmade so I actually did fall off my bike which made the trip even less attractive!!
The couple themselves who run it are lovely people but I think it really would only be suitable for anyone who wants to go and hide away or meditate for a few days as thats pretty much all you could do there.

Owners are very friendly and attentive, lovely & peaceful place, great for taking a deep breath and just slowing down.
We enjoyed our stay and the location was convenient. WiFi worked well in the rooms, overall a good experience.

Francesca & Massimo are most helpful and runs this small and very tastefully build out of bamboo resort with a friendly italian atmosphere. The kitchen is superb with Italian and thai on the menu. A lovely pool overlokking the sea together with Francescas readiness to drive you compensates for the poor quality of the local beach.

Room Tip: All rooms are good with aircon.
