We stayed at Blue Ocean for 5 nights in September and wish we could have stayed longer- it was the highlight of our trip to Thailand.
The bungalows are spacious, clean and comfortable. The service is excellent, everyone was always very friendly. Rooms are regularly cleaned, and you get 2 large bottles of water per day.
The location is beautiful, about 200 meters out is an amazing reef for snorkelling. The lounge chairs on the beech were a nice touch. A note in regards to the negative review below- yes the location is more isolated and the best way to get around is by motorbike. We rented one without any issues with the reccomendation from the lady at the front desk. She evebn got us a map and showed us a nice route to take and where to stop for lunch and hiking- it ended up being our favorite experience in thaialdn. yes you ahve to leave your passport- this is stnadard and you had to on all other islands we visited. If you choose a taki be [prepared to pay for it.
The restairant- Was fabulous. The best Italien food we've ever had, they have home-made pasta, even better than the food in Little Italy back home. They also haev delicious Thai dishes. The breakfast is included and is also excellent. They also have massage on site which are also excelllent.
We loved the atmosphere at Blue Ocean, it is quiet and relaxing with beautiful sunsets and friendly people. We plan on returning from Canada some day.
