“A time in heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This place is a must visit when going to Thailand... have been here several times. The accomodation is very basic, and beautifully located. Great, great service and great food. Excellent snorkeling and kayaking. And several daily longboat trips to Phi Phi town if you want to go shopping in Tourist Hell or diving (private trips available). Fishing and sightseeing trips galore (to e.g. Bamboo and Monkey Islands).

Room Tip: Ocean front, if possible. You sleep 5 metres from the waves.

Our first visit to Phi Phi and we would definitely return to these beach bungalows again. We had B4 right on the beach and it was a 10 second walk to the sandy beach.
It was idyllic. Peace and quiet is what you get. No loud disco music.
It has a small bar but has a comprehensive cocktail list which we tried to work our way through. There is also a very comprehensive menu choice and the food was good.
Staff were welcoming and friendly.
Only negative was we had cold showers and there is no power during the daytime.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

I stayed there for a week and it was lovely. I had a great rime and the beach cabnas arethe best...the view,the place and the atmosphere we're incredible. The food was good,the drinks very nice.
I recomend going with them on the islands tour cause it's worth it. Do a bit of snorkeling-they know all the good spots for it.

Phi Phi Relax beach Resort can only be reached by taxi boat which means that every time you want to go out until Phi Phi village center you have to catch the taxi boat and spend an extra money and there is fixed schedule to go and return. However if you want to spend some relaxing days, with no worries, only in the beach and having massages in the end of the day, go ahead, this resort is perfect. The food is very good as well as the bar and the massages in the cabanas at the beach. Different day tours can also be booked in the resort reception with drop in and drop off directly in the resort. The cabanas are really nice, tidy, clean and guess what: there is no mosquitos!!! Regardless the humidity at night you can have a good night sleep. The restaurant has plenty of choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The resort is around 15 minutes far from Phi Phi village center and there is always a taxi boat awaiting newcomers guests just outside the ferry from Ao Nang.

Room Tip: Try to get a Cabana right in the beach.

If you came expecting a "resorty bungalow", this is not it. Phi Phi Relax Beach Resort is a very basic accommodation (electricity only available at certain hours, unstable wifi, very laid back and sometimes minimum service, lack of facilities ...) but offers a private and secluded beach front. I came here with a few girlfriends for a weekend trip and since we would be out most of the time snorkeling or just chill at the town, it didn't give us too much of an issue.

If you are particular, you may want to consider the following:
1) The shower water did feel like "filtered sea water" to me, you are likely to get a feeling that you have not showered properly even if you had.
2) It is true that mosquito and other insects may crawl in to your room if you are placed at the back of the property. We only had a gap for windows and had the mosquito nest down so it was ok for us.
3) The fact it is secluded, you rely on the property for everything which includes dining and getting out (for day tour or simply getting to the town) with a fee of course.
4) Wifi connectivity is the best at the reception / restaurant area.

We initially had a bungalow at the back but upgraded to the beach front straight away as soon as we arrived. We heard there are some problems with bugs / rodents etc at the back bungalows & it was a very dark when we were shown the room so we decided to pay more for the beach location which was fine. We found this a great place to relax and unwind for a few nights. The power is off during the day which caused no problems for us. This resort is accessible only by boat or a long walkway through the jungle. Take a mosquito repellent and a torch! The food was good, excellent curries, double check the bill & pay as you go.. The beach here is lovely, good food, very quiet, not much to do... what more could we ask !
