The bay is a stunning hotel. It's down an incredibly steep hill. Be warned! They don't offer transfers from the pier which I think is misleading in some of there ads. The grounds are very well kept and the rooms are goods. Bathroom in need of a bit of tlc. ..

Really awful experience at this hotel. I cannot understand how this hotel is apparently 3/4 star. Location is horrendous alone, down the steepest hill I have ever seen, taxis will not go down this long winding hill. No reception area. Ant infested. The beach is very unpleasant, cannot swim in the sea. The pool is filthy and you would be... More

My brother, two friends, and I arrived on Koh Phangan several days before Full Moon Party. We stayed at a cheap hostel the first night, and spent the first day touring the island trying to find the best spot to stay for the next week. We came across The Bay and instantly realized it would be the best value and... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights over full moon... we wish we had stayed longer. The pictures on here do not do it justice, it is sooooo beautiful and peacefull it feels like you have the island to yourself! The rooms are pretty basic but are clean, with aircon and wifi. The hill is an absolute killer!... More

we stayed here for three nights over the full moon party, the staff were friendly and helpful, the beach attached to the hotel was stunning and the hotel has kayaks which you could use for free, although the sea is right there it is extremely shallow and then goes very deep with a lot of rocks further out which make...

We went to Thailand last may and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights whilst we went to the full moon party. We loved it and it was my favourite hotel out of the 3 week trip. I would go to ko phangnan again just to stay at this hotel. We had a room in the tree house. The rooms... More

This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had in my life. This hotel is not as advertised at all. We had to leave early as the conditions were disgusting and we felt unsafe. The location is in the middle of no where and there is a crazy hill you need to go up and down to access the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was one of the best hotels we have been to in Thailand. The private beach is absolutely gorgeous and the pool is lovely, right by the sea. We were at the end in a small bungalow with the sea right outside our window! The room wasn't amazing but we didn't plan on... More

We have travelled around different beach resorts in Thailand and this was our favourite. The room wasn't perfect but you can get over that when the other parts of the resort are so stunning. Staff are very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. A perfect way to spend a day.
