We stayed here for 2 nights and we wish we could have extended or at least gone back at the end of our trip. It was hands down by far the most amazing accommodation we stayed in overall for the whole trip. The staff are so friendly and warm- Wyn and Nee (not sure of spellings) were especially memorable- reserving... More

Milky Bay is an oasis! The staff is magnificent (especially Moon, Oom and gay Kai), we had a lot fun and even went to the half moon party with them. The food is great. Especially the fish BBQ and the bruschetta blue and the chicken cashew was the best we ever had! The restaurant is nicely set on the beach,... More

I took a studio room for the coast of around 2k baht. I'm not sure of the prices now. Anyway it is somwhere I would love to return to... More

It was by shear good luck that we learned about the Milky Bay Resort. In a poolside conversation a fellow tourist suggested that we consider this resort as the book end to our five month journey. The resort turned out to be a real winner and it deserves it's reputation as one of the finest resorts on Koh Phangan. These... More

This was one of my favorite places during my time in Thailand. The resort is right on the beach, so it has a beautiful view and atmosphere. It has it's own restaurant and bar (both great), and has a daily happy hour. The whole environment is very serene and relaxing. Everyone that works here is also very nice and accommodating.... More
