We booked as it was close to KBA kitesurfing and it was a great find. We had a bungalow on the beach with a veranda overlooking the restaurant/bar and beach. The room was everything we needed, the big steps down to the bathroom can be a little challenging in the dark at night. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the loungers on the beach are great to hangout and chill. There is a restaurant on site but also plenty of places to walk to or short ride on a motorbike

Please please please try the salmon & or tuna! With vegetables and potatoes. Honestly, the best salmon I’ve had on the island! The staff are all so beautiful and helpful. It’s located on the beach, which nice weather you can be with your feet in the sand and if it’s raining there is also a gorgeously decorated inside area. It’s an absolute must to eat here a couple of times if your on the island. Also their fruit shakes, and cocktails are great! See you soon guys! Thank you for the wonderful smiles and service

Nice atmosphere and good bar, restaurant and games section. Office staff could have been a bit friendlier but overall I had a good experience. The food is good too, particularly the seafood and burgers.

Good clean resort on beach with kayak available, lovely small swimming pool, good staff and daily cleaning etc. stayed here for nearly a month in April 2020. nice beach aswell, great staff, only small issue is the resort is better if you have a bicycle or motorbike as the location is in Bantai, a bit out of Thongsala, about 20 minutes walk from Big C.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and very thankful that you chose to stay with us for such a long time. Bantai is actually very central though. It is the area right next to Thongsala.We hope to see you again once the Covid pandemic is over.Thank you again for staying with us at Milky Bay.

I stayed for four weeks during Covid 19 in Milky Bay Resort. I really can recommend this place. Not only the clean and comfortable bungalows. Even the food, especially the seafood is excellent. The restaurant next to the beach allowed a beautiful evening with phantastic atmosphere. All staff during my stay was very helpful and friendly.

I have been blown away by the kindness and friendliness of the staff working at Milky Bay. So helpful at every opportunity to make the stay a special one. The superior bungalows are in great condition, very spacious and you walk right out onto the beach. The beach is clean with white sand. Good selection of food and drinks at very reasonable prices. Walking distance of some restaurants, bars, massage places, with a FamilyMart convenience store next door - you really don't need to leave the resort though. In terms of Covid the place is fully open (July) but the surrounding areas are extremely quiet without international tourism. Top marks to Milky Bay, thank you again to all the staff.

We stayed here in Feb for the full moon party, the hotel is so lovely and the staff are very friendly. The hotel is located on a quiet secluded beach, so there is no traffic noise or anything! The hotel do a transfer to the full moon party and back at a charge, I can’t remember how much though! If you are looking to stay in Koh Phangan, I would definitely recommend this hotel and I was stay here again in the future for sure!

We stayed here a couple of weeks and enjoyed very much the clean room and a nice supporting staff. It's very good situated on the sandy beach with a Family Mart round the corner. We had tasty breakfast included and it was great sitting at the restaurant so close to the sea. Everything was well working. Easy to recommend.

They were racist. While we had booked a superior room. We were not given the same at the time of check in. They tried to compensate it by offering us a free dinner but it doesn't overcome their racism. They were reluctant to offer us an appropriate studio room while the same was given to white people who checked in after us. I can manage with sub standard service but not racist behavior when I have paid equivalent or more money for it. Breakfast was the worst among all the hotels we stayed in Thailand. Bread and fruits were lifted sharp at 10:30 am. I was extremely unhappy with the food box they gave us next day for breakfast (fruits cut from last night that were already smelling+ muesli and packaged curd) we simply threw it due to smelling fruits and it shows the effort they put in to serve us. Pro - good beach, right on the beach rooms, excellent restaurant & bar staff, no security deposit. Highly unrecommended for Indians unless you want be treated like cattle class.

Upon investigating your review I found that you booked a studio room which you were taken to on check in. This room was on the second floor and since you had a child with you, you didn't want an upstairs room and asked for a different room. We did not have any other studio rooms available and since we were almost fully booked the only rooms available were shown to you. You accepted the different room type available on ground floor as opposed to your studio on the second floor . Our staff offered you free dinner vouchers only to make you feel happier and more comfortable about moving to a different room type but not because they couldn't give you the room you booked. You opted to not stay in the room you booked since it was an upstairs room and you were happy to accept a different room and seemed happy to change so we are confused to now receive this mail. We have been established for many many years and are deeply insulted and offended that you would accuse us of racism. We are troubled that you would say this just because you feel that you didn't get what you wanted even though our staff went out of their way to find an alternative solution for you and even compensate you with dinner vouchers out of good service. We are in an international tourism industry and receive people from all over the world of all different races and religions every day and welcome everybody with open arms. Breakfast is ordered from an Ala carte menu and extra fresh fruit , pastries , tea and coffee are set out each day as a complimentary extra. This fruit is cut fresh every day and yes breakfast does end at 10-30 am every day, so I am not sure why this was seen as a problem if the staff start to clear the extra fruits and pastries that are offered with a full ala carte menu. Your accusation saddens us greatly.
