My boyfriend and I stayed here during low peak season in July and although the area was quiet we found it as a great location to relax and chill for a couple of days. It is down as a 3 star hotel but for the value, the standard seems much higher than that. The rooms were modern, clean and well... More

We booked through agoda and got half price deals through low season which was awesome and made it only just more expensive than a hostel. The staff are very nice and friendly, the rooms are nice and the air conditioning is strong which is a blessing in Thailand! The menu is pretty good at the restaurant but the buffet breakfast...

We were initially in a hostel and ate lunch here on our first day but the staff we so nice we decided to stay there a couple of nights. The rooms were clean, quiet... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Golden Bay Cottages. The highlight of our stay was that we were given a newly renovated bungalow in the first row - only 2 steps distance from the beach. Perfect! :-) The bungalow was very clean, the beds comfy and the bathroom very spacious with a walk-in shower. We liked very much... More

Good hotel to relax for family! But the standard of the room so not fit the price... Too expensive for standard room. But a car will pick you up and bring you back to the pier for free. Nice staff really helpful kind always smiling! Beach is really close and at night that's appreciable too

First the positives. 1. Great location. Right on the best part of the beach. 2. Couple of Ocean view cottages with best possible views. Similar cottages in other hotels would cost much more. 3. Size and cleanliness good for its price. 4. Reasonable breakfast spread. 5. Quick and responsive front desk. 6. Very near Saladan , seven eleven, and eating... More

The north is definitely the most developed part of Koh Lanta. As the Golden Bay is located on Dao Beach you will not be able to truely relax at the resort. Go further south to Klong Nin Beach, the resorts there are more relaxed and you get the same value for less Bahts. Do not trust the receptionists at Golden... More

We visited this resort in January 2016 as part of a 10 week tour of Thailand, and it was a wonderful place to stay. The individual cottages are spacious, well furnished and maintained and very comfortable with efficient air con. Our room was cleaned each day, and the variety of towel art that was left for us was worth many... More

No. No. No. And for the benefit of the visually impaired or the hard of hearing.... No. Pros: Location. On the beach. Air con is quiet and works well. Egg chef makes a... More
