We had a fabulous three nights at Milky Bay courtesy of their fabulous staff and fantastic facilities. The resort, located in Baan Tai, is a little further along the coast to the West of Haad Rin, where our friends were staying, however this suited us fine as we were happy to leave the chaos of the Full Moon Party and return home to the quiet serenity! We hired a scooter for a couple of days and didn't find the distance a problem, making it in to Haad Rin in 15 minutes. Taxis are also very cheap 100B per person each way. There is a collected of shops locally on the main road but it is mainly other resorts in this area.
The resort itself is stunning. It is right on the beach and has a fabulous pool and so many activities to keep my partner and I occupied, that included table tennis, pool and volleyball. The hut we stayed in was beautifully decorated, with a large bed, TV, air-con and sofa. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a superior room which was presented well with flowers on the bed and other nice touches. Our room was serviced/cleaned everyday and we had no such problems sleeping or with our blinds. The only noise came from the geckos outside, however that added to the attraction of the place!
The breakfast, included in our hotel room price, was very filling and extremely tasty. We rarely had lunch as we were still so full from our full breakfast, omlettes, pancakes or fruit and museli! One evening we had fabulous pizzas and one lunchtime we had some tasty Thai cuisine. All in all we were very happy with the service, prices and food.
We'd definitely recommend the resort. It is a great place to kick back and relax but don't be put off by its location.. I think this is really a blessing in disguise!
