Compared to other bungalow sites on the island, this place is expensive and with very little love put into the details. Also the generator is very loud. If you get a bungalow in the back you will need to close the windows to sleep.

Located directly on the beach of Buffalo Bay at Koh Phayam island and open all the year, our club offers guests of all ages the perfect destination, with spacious, comfortable, modern bungalows at a very More affordable price. From family escapes to long stay opportunity for your retirement, our resort suits most travel tastes. We provide the privacy, services and amenities associated only with luxury resorts at very moderate prices for guests seeking quiet and relaxing beach holidays. We are only a small resort, located on an island without electricity, a good source of fresh water and limited supply of staff and logistics, so please don’t expect Club Med , when everything is included or Marriott Club service. We are private club and in pick season or some weeks our activities or tours organised only for club members.Our bungalows offer some of the finest accommodation on Koh Phayam island. 24 hours electricity, only 22 bungalows, all are with own balcony with chairs, fully furnished with stylish wooden teak furniture, modern amenities and offering the comforts for all budgets. We provide different rental prices for our bungalows – with or without full amenities and discount for long stay. Less

I prefer the northern end of Buffalo Bay, but the BB Vacation Club is still a good location. Clean, great food, and helpful owner.
