Thai Bamboo Guesthouse
Ranked #8 of 79 Cha-am B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This was our first visit to Thailand and a Thai friend had suggested we stay near to Cha-Am.
Cha-Am is a bustling, busy seaside resort. We didn't hire a car, so we only saw the town beach area- I understand that quieter beaches are very accessible by car/moped. Staying at Thai Bamboo was a perfect plan for us because it is a comfortable, tranquil, serene, lushly tropical escape from the chaos of Cha-Am.
Rudi (the owner) is the perfect host. He's a mine of local information and contacts, but unobtrusive when you want to be alone. He has a great sense of humour and speaks English superbly. Accommodation is first class. Breakfast is simple but adequate. We cycled to most places- it's a 40 minute steady bike ride into Cha-Am and you get to see some Thai agriculture in action. We would definitely go again.

My girlfriend I live in Bangkok. Whenever we can manage to have a break from our busy life, we try to go outside Bangkok as much as we can. Thai Bamboo is always be the choice for our holidays. For the the past two years, we have been visited the Thai Bamboo Resort for more than 20 times. It is only two-hour drive from Bangkok and is not far from the beach. Thai Bamboo is very peaceful, private and surrounded with nature. We can have sun-bathing and can be relaxed by the naturist friendly pool all day long. The bar, which is only a few walks from the pool, is full of our favorite drinks at reasonable prices. The room is bigger than the average hotel room. It includes hot and cold shower, refridgerator, hair-dryer, electric water pot, free coffee etc. Rudi, the owner, is always there to help you plan your holiday and to make it a very pleasant one.

Thai Bamboo Guesthouse is quite isolated from the beach and nearby towns. This wasn't a problem for us, initially, as we looked forward to some peace and quiet.

We didn't fancy cycling home in the dark or paying high taxi fares home from town every night, so evenings were spent either in the bungalow or at the bar with the owner, Rudi. This was fine for a couple of days, though we were limited to pot noodles from the small local shop for dinner, or left-overs from lunch we'd had out during the day.

However, things became uncomfortable when the owner's internet date arrived to stay for 4 or 5 days. With no-one else around and nowhere to go, we’d end up at the bar with them, sitting through many awkward silences. They’d both often make complaints about the other.

One evening the owner offered to drive us to dinner, along with the girl. Since we were fed up with our usual options we went along to a restaurant with them. A very awkward experience, and once we got back the owner left us with his date at the bar and disappeared.

The next morning we noticed that he had decided to add a full taxi fare onto our tab for the trip to the restaurant (to which he'd invited us and not mentioned a 'fee'). Also, he was nowhere to be found despite having agreed to take us to Hua Hin in the afternoon. The girl was still home but eventually got picked up by a friend and left. We were then left alone in the property for the whole day and night, main building wide open! We couldn’t even contact the owner to hire a moped to get out somewhere.

He returns the next day saying he stopped out for a drink and didn't return.

On top of this, we were experiencing frequent power cuts which left us in darkness and also total loss of wi-fi, which is very important for us and was one of the facilities advertised.

We decided to leave 6 nights early as we felt totally unhappy and uncomfortable with the situation. Rudi has refused to refund us for any of those nights.
