We loved this place. We spent a week there in the middle of February during a three week trip to Thailand. Milky Bay was just perfect for us. Friendly, food was great. I think we had dinner next to the sea every night. Stunningly beautiful setting. Highly recommend

I had a great stay at Milky Bay - wonderful little bungalows in a wood behind the beach. Staff went out of their way to be friendly and polite. Probably the best massages I had in Thailand, and some of the best food in the beach-front restaurant. The views from there are stunning.

I would say my standard room was slightly on the small side - I would have no hesitation staying at the hotel again, but would probably go for a superior room.

I always tell guest that whatever you do while you are in Thailand is take advantage of the relaxing and affordable massages, so I am glad you did and will let the masseurs know you enjoyed it.Another must is a cocktail while watching the sunset and beautiful views.It really does do something for the spirit.Thank you so much for your comments and glad you enjoyed the food and the staff hospitality.we hope you will one day return to Thailand.

Good Place to start to visit the island.
Cheaper (circa 30€/room) and very beautiful. Cleaned and large rooms. Breakfast excellent.
The restaurant is very good also. Cocktails fantastic. Very beautiful Sunset.
There is a small swimming pool but nice.
The only negative thing is the beach in front of the hotel, it is small and it's difficult to swim because the water is not so deep, but you can rent a motorbike and go a round the island without any problem.

Thank you for your very generous review.The sunsets are trully special from the resort especially with a lovely refreshing cocktail so yes you are right they are not to be missed.The sea tide is unfortunately out at this time of the year so the water is shallow but glad that you explored other parts of the island with better beaches at this time.Thank you thank you for choosing Milky Bay Resort and glad we were able to please you.

We stayed 5 nights for new year, and loved our time there. The staff are incredibly attentive and accommodating. Particularly recommend the traditional Thai massages in the beautiful ambient jungle setting.. Just watch out for the snakes.. Joke! I'd highly recommended the milky bay to anyone staying in koh phangan.

Arrived at the hotel at 2.00pm tired after a long trip to check in and found our room was not ready.
Unpacked in the not so impressive room and chilled out at the bar for a snack and fruit shake.
Paid for what we thought was the total bill and went back to our room.I left my wife to relax and
went out with my daughter to pick up some food and change some money in town.On return I learnt that the bar staff had been harrassing her for an unpaid "snack" bill which equated to less than $5 AUD.
The staff were rude and insistant on payment and of course she had no local currency to pay them.We settled the account immediately on return.Our stay was ruined by this stupid act and staff were stand offish towards us.I would not recommend Milky Bay as a resort destination.

As you know your comments are very important to us.As we strive to give the best possible service and have all rooms ready by 2pm it is sometimes difficuly when the resort is busy and other guests checking out possibly delay the process so really sorry you had to wait.I know you can be eally hot and bothered getting off from the boat after a long trip as it is really hot and tiresome.We certainly do try have all rooms ready on time.It is very disturbing to hear that a staff member was rude as they generally are really friendly and helpful and know that guests sometimes have to change currency and are therefore accommodating and will offer to put an unpaid bill to credit.We will certainly look into it.We are disappointed that we couldnt please you and will try harder.

Overall the resort was very nice decorated. But the biegest Problem was that the pool was Defect. They only laughed and Proposed is to go to their "sister hotel" Lemon n Soda.

In our bungalow , we had several animals like cockroaches etc. But the interieur was convenient facilitated.

The pizza from pizza Stone was TOP!!!! ;-)

If you don't care about animals in the room the Price is ok.

It is unfortunate that sometimes you do have to do some maintenance.All our guests were notified before booking and it was posted on all our websites about the 10 day pool renovation.The staff offered a free transfer to and from to our sister resort to use the pool which is only about a 5 min drive as we know that it is hot and you need to cool off.We realise it as an inconvenience and do apologise.I will pass on the compliments to our pizza chef.Being in a very lush garden setting it can be sometimes difficult to control the wildlife 100%.Thank you for your review.

Stayed here for 5 nights over the full-moon party. It's a great resort which offers amazing service at an affordable price. It's located away from the main party beach but they arrange transfers to the full-moon party and taxis are cheap. The food is fantasic but the beach isn't great so we spent most the time around the pool.
