Cannot Fault anything about this place! Loved every minute of it from the moment we arrived. Our room was spotless and the food was delicious! So much so we never felt the need to eat anywhere else! What makes the hotel is almost definitely the staff , All extremely welcoming and every member who see's you whether it be the resturant/bar staff or the kitchen staff. We loved them all. We came here for the full moon party and everything was organised for us.. transport there and back and even some Neon paint!!! We are definitely coming back here! Infact we dont want to even leave for our next hotel!

Room Tip: We had the HoneyMoon room :)

To get a five out of five is certainly a wonderful feeling.Thank you so much.The cheff will be happy to hear that you enjoyed his food so much.I am glad the staff took care of you and made your full moon a memorable one without any hickups.It is guests like yourselves that make it all worthwhile in the end.

Stayed three nights and was blown away by this place. It is beautiful, the staff are so nice and it is reasonably priced. The massages onsite are fantastic, I left this resort so relaxed. We stayed here during the half moon party and the resort supplied paint and a taxi to the party. We also rented scooters at the hotel reception and had such fun exploring the island! Loved everything about this resort, the pictures dont do it justice!

Thank you for the amazing comments.We are so chuffed to hear you loved Milky Bay Resort.I am glad you took advantage of the very reasonably priced massages in Thailand.They are truly a treat for all visitors.Exploring the island by bike is the best way if you can avoid the Koh Phangan tatoo.Please visit again.

We stayed one night in this resort after the full moon party and before we took our boat to Koh Tao at Tongsala pier. The resort is lovely, the restaurant is very nice and our room (we had a studio > got a free upgrade) was very big, clean and comfortable. I think this is the most friendly staff I ever met in Thailand. They really seemed to like their work, were very motivated, funny, congenial and spoke very good English. The food from the restaurant was also very good. Only disadvantage; the beach was not very nice (but maybe that depends on the season). They also offer a free shuttle to Tongsala pier. I was a bit sad that we only stayed there for one night - next time.

As Zurich has just come out of winter Im glad to hear that you had a good time and enjoying Thailands hot weather and hospitality.Its a pity you were only with us for one night but hopefully you will some day return.Its important to us that our staff are happy as it is ultimately the guest that will feel this and the english language is also important as communicating easily makes all the difference.Yes you are right about the sea, the tide is out at this time of year so sorry about that.Thank you very much for your lovely feedback and hope you enjoyed Koh Tao with its lovely snorkelling.

The Location. Milky Bay Resort is situated in Bantai which is a great location if you're going to the half moon festival psytrance party. It's also quite close to Tong Sala and the hotel provided free transportation from there and back for free in their truck. Rent a jeep and drive to Tong Naipan.
The Accommodation. Lovely grounds, happy and peaceful feeling, friendly and happy staff, good food, clean rooms, no hassle, cheap car and bike rental. Perfect for independent travelers who know what they want and don't need constant pampering. Part of the swimming pool is in the shade, so you can swim all day, great idea. Mainly younger party going people, no kids. We enjoyed our stay and will be back again :)

Room Tip: Surprisingly, upon check-in the girl asked for full room payment, even before we'd seen it. I re...

We always found swimming pool water really warm in Thailand so thats why we decided to do a half shaded pool as this keeps the water a little cooler and of course offers relief from the hot sun, so I am pleased that it made a positive difference to you.Thank you for the room tip.It has prompted us to recheck all the airconditioners again.We are pleased you found the staff to be happy with a peaceful feeling as this ultimately transcends through to the guests and hopefully make you feel happy and at peace during your stay.Thank you very much for your positive review.We hope you are enjoying Samui island just as much.

Our wooden Bangalows was dark n dinji the light was not good we was always tripping over the bed edges cos you can't see what you doing. If u opened up the one window for flight all the air con escapes. The pizzas are nice, service wasn't that great a bit anoying at times. Better value elsewhere on the island or even on the same road.

The standard bungalows are our first entry rooms and always advise guests to upgrade to a more spacious room as the bungalows are just that, a "bungalow" and can be very tight.We will look into the lighting and making them brighter.Dissapointed that you only enjoyed the pizza but thank you for sending in your review.All points well noted.

Stayed for 4 nights in January around half moon time. The resort sent someone to pick me up free of charge from the pier and room was ready upon arrival. They also organised onward travel to koh samui including drop off and transfer at the other end - in general, the staff can't do enough to help! Travel to the half moon party was also organised by them upon request. Absolutely no hassle stay!
Room itself was very nice and air conditioned - came across the odd gekko but that's par for the course in this kind of setting so didn't bother me - the rooms are cleaned and maintained to a very high standad in general !
Aside from the room, there is a bar with pool table - bar staff like the rest of the resort staff were very friendly (Burn and the manageress especially were stars!). Cocktails were pretty decent but the really highlight was the food - the barbequed chicken and fish were awesome. The pizza is also worth a try - one of the best I've come across.
Breakfast was also included and was always a top experience with the beach view within a stone's throw and some good banter with the staff to start the day.
Tried the on site massage on penultimate day and it sorted me right out - again, one of the best I had in Thailand.
If you're looking for a hassle free break with outstanding customer service and a really friendly vibe, I can't recommend this place enough!!

We stayed at the Milky Bay for 5 nights in a superior double room. The staff are very friendly and there is a good atmosphere. The resort is mainly all traditional Thai huts which all look amazing. The Resturant is situated right on the beach with gorgeous views. During the day the tide is out and you can walk out quite far. The pool area is nice with a shelter over some of the pool and lounging area to keep out the sun and cool down. My only gripe were the ants in the room, where the hut roofs were traditional materials they would constantly be on the bed and I had a few restless nights. Other than that it was a lovely place to stay!
