Just want to say a massive thank you to Sam and his team for making our time so special here. They made us feel like party of the family - invited us to eat with them, painted our faces and came to the full moon party with us! We already miss you!! We wouldn't hesitate to come back to Smile...

We had lunch at Smile bungalows. The food was absolutly tasteless and very overpriced. When we said something to the waiter, he didn't react at all. The spot is nice and the bungalows look comfy but I recommend avoiding the restaurant... You've been warned !

We had a brilliant stay at Smile! Being a travel agent myself I would recommend this property to all my customers. The owner and staff made us feel welcome and the customer care far exceeded the level we received in many 5 star hotels! We were made to feel so welcome! We was even invited for a meal with the...

Stayed in a bungalow on the beach at this secluded beach of Koh Phangan for a couple of nights. Charming old world style bungalow right on the beach. The bed was comfortable and they had nets and a fan. Clean and friendly. Make sure you hike up to the rock overlooking the beach for beautiful vistas.

Bottle beach is amazing, smile bungalows is very good. Cheap, clean and well placed bungalows for about 500 baht, nice view, friendly staff. One Contra is the kitchen, which tastes ok, but is slightly overpriced. Better go the 300 m to had khuat resort for a meal ;-)

Stayed here 4 nights with the fiancee. Totally laid back, quiet, and off the grid. The grounds are beautiful on a hillside and the restaurant is the best on the beach. Everything runs on a generator, not sure if there's A.C in any bungalows but we had a basic fan room, which was fine but hot at night. Highly recommended...

Looking for high end resort luxury? Think you're on the wrong island, let alone the wrong beach. Bottle Beach is where you head to get away from it all. Yes, it isn't easy to get to, but that is half the appeal. Access by Longtail, or a 4x4 if you book ahead. Yes, the place is basic, but it's the...

We stayed 2 nights in a family bungalow for 4 people. This place is all about its beautiful and pristine beach, quietness, and remote location. The bungalow itself was clean and comfortable - although quite small for 4 pax. I suffered a bit from lack of light in the bathroom and heat in the room but it was totally fine...

First off, staying all the way out on bottle beach is such a cool experience. We sat in the back of a flatbed truck and drove to chaloklum beach on a road reminiscent of a roller coaster. Then we boarded a longtail boat to the beach. What an entrance! Bottle beach is so secluded and cool. Great soft sand. Smile...

The first problem we faced was getting there. You can take a boat, but the water was to wild, so we had to go all the way back to the pier to find a different way to get there. After we called to hotel they came to pick us up, because no one else wanted to take us. Everything together...

“Ask NOT to be in a room at the top of the hill. We paid for the most expensive room (S11) but rooms lower down had a better view of the sea”

“Budget rooms are pretty much the same, just a little less space. Ours was budget and it was right near the beach and restaurant. Our friends paid a little more and they had a room a but further up the hill but it was on 2 levels.”
