If you want good food, great hospitality and a chill out then Bon island is perfect! We got a long tail boat over from rawai for around 1200 baht, just tell them what time you want picking up and they'll come back for you. We got there early in low season so for the 1st hour it was just us... More

After a short longtail trip from Rawai Beach, you land on Bon Island. There are no flashy restaurants or other developments but we loved the fact that it was unspoilt, uncrowded and 'rustic'. The beach was beautiful with some snorkelling areas and plenty of fish eager to see if you had any food for them. Dawn, the restaurant owner was... More

It's a very nice restaurant in a small island. The owner is from England, and she's very friendly. The menu is rich of choises and thai specialities. You can enjoy the beach and eat some steps from the sea. Like in a paradise!

We took a trip over to Bon Island for Christmas Day and we were so glad we did. I reserved a table on the beach with Dawn before we went, which I was glad of as it was a very busy day for Dawn and the team, as expected, being Christmas Day!! We got a longtail boat from Rawai for... More

Everything in this restaurant is about twice as expensive as thai restaurants on the main island of Phuket. Sodas are 60 baht. Curries are 240. The quality of the Tom Kha Gai and other dishes were below average. The Tom Kha was missing many ingredients you would take for granted to be included. It almost felt like they just added... More

Take a long tail boat from the shore from a man called Chain. He is a honest guy and won't rip you off. In approx 10 mins you reach Bon Island. Staff at the restaurant only arrives between 9am and 10am. Better if you arrive at about 10am. By then they have cleaned the beach and set up their kitchen.... More

A short long tail boat ride from Rawai beach takes you to Bon Island and this lovely little castaway island restaurant. To get here can become a little adventure from negotiating your boat ( I paid a 1000 Baht ) as a guide to arriving on this little Island. The boat waits for you so take your time and chill... More

I have to say that I was slightly disappointed by the whole experience - do not get me wrong it is a nice little beach and the restaurant is OK, but some of this reviews suggest that you will be going to an amazing island and have a great time when the reality is that the beach is no any... More
