This was our last stop on a whirlwind, week-long Thailand vacation, and a wonderful opportunity to relax in seclusion. With such incredible views from our private stilted bungalow, I took the opportunity to propose to my girlfriend! She said yes, and we spent the evening on the private balcony, watching the sunset over the beautiful island of Koh Phi Phi Don. Obviously, this hotel will always hold a special place in my heart.
The location in general is absolutely stunning, but I would not recommend staying here if you have any interest in visiting the small island town. We were swindled by the lone boatman willing to take us the 15 minute trip to town, and it was even worse on the way back, where we were almost stranded for the night! If you stay at Koh Phi Phi The Beach Resort, you're better off literally staying there the whole time, with the exception of a boat excursion to the smaller uninhabited neighbor island to see the picturesque hidden bay where the movie "The Beach" was filmed. You can arrange for this through the hotel, and the prices are fixed, so you won't be ripped off by an opportunistic boat driver.
Other than the boat-ride swindling, and an abundance of ants in the hotel room (which are probably inevitable in these type of bungalow structures), we had an incredible time, great food, a gorgeous beach, and the best views imaginable. Would recommend and would definitely return!
