Stayed here for the purposes of visiting the Half Moon festival. The hotel is nice enough, we had the villa right on the beach so location was great, should imagine if you are more in land you would be disappointed. Beach is nice but has lots of annoying dogs and my mrs found the staff at the restaurant a bit... More

We had a fantastic 2 night stay at Milky Bay Resort. On arrival we were greeted with cold towels and a drink. The lodges are really quirky - all the amenities you need! We were located in B1 which was opposite the pool and right next to the beach. Staff are fantastic, so friendly and welcoming and remember you by... More

Last year we stayed at a separate hotel and regularly came down to Milkybay for evening meals and cocktails in the afternoon and the staff were very warm welcoming. This year we returned to Koh Phangan and Milkybay was fully booked so we had to stay elsewhere. Again we went down for an evening meal and the service was shocking.... More

Do not book the standard bungalow here! We stayed for the full moon party weekend in June and would have left if anywhere else on the island had been available. The room is very small and not sealed to the outdoors at all, so it was crawling with lizards and insects. We asked for a mosquito net over the bed... More

The sea is murky and less than knee deep for 300 metres, and then you hit seaweed. The restaurant plays endless wordless panpipes (elevator music). The included breakfast is poor (choose 1 of 5 mediocre things; no seconds, no buffet, no fruit platter, not even any herbal tea!). I've never had such a poor inclusive breakfast. Milky Bay has a...

We came to dinner here twice. The first night we had pizzas and cocktails, the second we had pasta dishes. The pizza was a lovely thin crust and really tasty.
