This is a good place. You are right on the beach. The bungalows are pretty nice, the grounds are well maintained and there is a pool. We were there in green season so it was quiet which is a shame because the beach bar would be great when busy. Kids loved it here, especially the swing on the beach. Beach... More

Placed on a private beach with a nice snorkeling reef. A quiet location suitable for families. Many of the helpful staff speaks a quite workable english. Accessed by 20 minutes in longboat from Ton Sai beach, so few nighttime revelers disturb your sleep.

We originaly booked for 5 nights based on the giod reviews but we stayed an extra night in order to enjoy this amazing place. We had a villa with AC (well needed) with sea view. The rooms do need a make over but everything is super clean. The resort itself is surounded by nature and it's absolutely superb. They shoot... More

We had a nice stay at Relax Bay Resort. Mostly because of the nice beach and the chill vibe. The bungalows smelled like mold and could have been cleaner. Our last day there was a staff party without warning. Lunch closed early, and the party went on long after midnight :(

The resort is on a semi private piece of pristine beach with a few small beach bars further along. True island chill with fresh coconuts, straw loungers and lots of cats. Generally amazing massage especially from a woman called 'joy' who gives the best massages in the world. Super relaxed vibe. Especially at the end of the season where we... More

At first I was surprised by the other 1 star review of the rude french owners. However, when we told the staff that we would like to check out one day early of our week long stay we were met with resistance and told that we would not be refunded our last day. Good thing we had not paid yet... More

alainrelax, Owner at Relax Bay Resort, responded to this review

Wel sir, i rest my case. When you book à room and THE hotel accept it's a contract. The hotel is obliged to give you the same type of room or higher class in case of a mistake in the booking. A customer on the other hand engages himself to pay for the booked stay. Due to the changing world,... More

Went with my daughter we loved the resort and the front desk workers were always very helpful with all our planning needs. Loved that you could charge everything to your room. Makes for a very convenient way to buy your meals and drinks at the lovely beach front bar. We booked our snorkeling trip on the property they were wonderful... More

Relax Bay is a very pretty resort comprised of a wide variety of bungalows, some of which are close to the long wide beach, others behind them and clustered around a good-sized swimming pool, some on the hillside overlooking the beach, and others much further up the hill with great ocean views. We were happy with our clean, simply furnished... More

My husband and I just spent one night at this hotel. It was really nice to find how the beauty of nature is kept, it is still really wild and all the bungalows are in the middle of the nature. But only fans, no aircons : a bit hot during the day but you can have a refreshing time swimming... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relax bay is not your average hotel. If you look for a traditional hotel with AC, concrete walls and all amenities you can find in any deluxe hotel anywhere in the world. Well, we are not the place to be. Our rooms are Huts, spaced between 5 and 10 m from each other and set in a as Jungle-ish possible setting. There is almost no concrete and we constructed our bungalows under the trees. This means they are in the shade. Furthermore the grass-type roofs are overhanging and give protection against the sun and around the bungalows we planted flowers and plants to block out the sun. Shade means coolness but also darkness. Bamboo, a living natural product also soaks up the moisture in the air. We air the rooms, but they always smell a bit Bamboo-ish. They do not smell damp and not well kept, they smell natural.Our roofs are made from grass, so they disintegrate after a time. They are not as waterproof as concrete, or tar roofs. However they are much cooler. and they look much better. Prices on the net should be the same everywhere , but you are best served by making a direct reservation at the hotel. ... more   less
