“Stunning”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We stayed for 3 nights in total (2 at Charm Churee Sunset Cottage and unfortunatly just one night in the Bamboo Huts with a private pool BB3). What more can I say but 'stunning'. It was the most spectacular view from the room/pool and is set high on the hill with a really lovely entrance down a steep pathway surrounded by beautiful vegetation. The room was a good 5-10 minutes walk away from the rest of the resort (bar & restaurant) but I really liked this about it. I loved the winding paths trailing up and down through the trees and although sometimes steep had spectacular views and were perfectly crafted and showed amazing workmanship. Our room was positioned half way between both of the beautful beaches and again was a lovely walk. It was terrific exercise after their wonderful meals provided at both the bar area and restaurant. We absolutely loved this place and will be back.

Room Tip: BB3 with a private pool is very much worth the extra expence.

Frist of all, the reservation have replid my email and answer my
many qusetions any request quickly, infromative, helpful.

Once drop off the ferry, someone waited for us and sent us to hotel by 4WD.
When i arrived hotel i was friendly welcome by the reception with the
welcome drink and like the cool towel. My room was been up grade with
the bigger pool and face a amazing seaviews .

The room was big, nice, clean, with free wifi connection which is very
helpful, the breakfast at the Starlight is very high quality.

Even when we check out the driver and bell man were helpful to arrange
our cases and send us to the pier.

We only staying for 3 night, i can't remember the name for all staff but everyone was very kind and helpful with super service!!!

Especially, Anty (receptionist) is very helpful and nice, she help on
everything if needed. Also her smile is really sweet.

Room Tip: Must remember to bring and use sunscreen

We stayed in Bamboo Huts (BBH) for 3 nights in August 2012. The huts are rustic and cute, with stunning views.
The huts (which are not fully sealed and not as 'luxury' as expected) are situated on the rocks which have crashing waves, making it rather noisey.
The location is a little tricky to get to at night once the complimentary 4x4 has stopped running. There is a pathway from Mae Had (the local town) to the huts, this is reasonably well lit but is a bit of a trek if you're not used to walking up and down lots of steps and hills (in the heat). It took us around 30 minutes to do this walk at a reasonable pace (not strolling) from town every evening.
Overall the staff were lovely and the resort and breakfast area have stunning views. However I wouldn't stay here again due to the huts being slightly open to the elements and in a location which was more difficult than expected to get to (I'm average fitness but was not prepared for this). I did also miss having a pool area.

Arrived at the pier and was met by staff for transfer, welcome drink on arrival at Charm Cheree ( bamboo huts is part of Charm Cheree) Reception on the surface good but on a closer look a bit worn.
Went to our hut which was great no qualms at all a bit away from the main part but that was fine, very quirky bathroom etc and a great outlook.
One thing that was annoying after a few days was that the weather was blowy and the waves constantly crashing into the rocks and splashing over the balcony now that cant be helped but after 3 days of it we moved the other side of the point in part of Charm Cheree which was much more sheltered and much quieter.
The other thing was you could get into the sea from the huts once the waves died down but couldn't get out!! so a couple of times I snorkeled around to the bay where i could get out of the water safely.
Our new room had a dripping AC which was reported but nothing was done while we were there also our room wasnt cleaned on the last day possible due to the Do Not Disturb sign being blown about but a very large room with a great view.
All in all the rooms could do with a refurb and the bamboo furniture outside could do with some varnish.
if I went back to Koh Tao I dont think I would stay there as very expensive for Thailand but a great time was had while we were there.

Both my Husband and I stayed here, for part of Our honeymoon, May 2012. We stayed in a delightful Bamboo hut, in this Eco-park! Stunning views from Our bedroom, which also hosted 2 balconies, elevated over the lapping waves! It was very unique, and charming. The accommodation itself, was life a luxury bamboo hut, cut into the natural stone cliff! It was very cozy, and tranquil. Each night we listened to the waves coming in, under Our hut! What a lovely peaceful sound! We stayed in BB 11, well recommended, with 2 stunning balconies, with fantastic views, shower, en suite bathroom, mini-bar, and air-co. Enough to relax and unwind! Well recommend it!:) Mary& Dez

Room Tip: Yes BB 11, great views, and ideally located between 2 lovely beaches!

Once you're entering to amazing Koh Tao island, you're on a pier and thinking where you gonna stay. Just head to the rightside and approx 1-2 kilometers you find this beautiful resort. The hotel desk is located near mainroad, but actual huts are located down to the hill distance is approx 400meters or so. Once you need to move around hotel placies, no worries have own 4wd car with a driver, so even the big hills goes easily. Near the huts views are just amazing, rock cliffs and quiet own beach. Near the nature, might have geckos, lizards or something but nothing scary or dangerous.

Rooms are super nice too and have everything what is needed, front of the room have own jacuzzi and amazing panorama seaviews straight to the ocean. Good warm shower and A/C, plus fridge full of goodies. Closest neughbours arent near, so can be totally alone if needed. Staff is helpful and nice, they help on everything if needed and the feeling while staying on hotel is really good.

This place makes staying on Koh Tao more memorable and amazing. If wanted to no need to go away from hotel, they have a nice restaurant and other services in hotel.

We stayed at bamboo huts early February 2012. I saw it on the net while in koh samui. We went over and found it.
Awesome! Low key but fantastic position, views and very Thai. Our host Baas showed us all the rooms. We chose BB3 WOW! Private pool A/C and access to the most awesome underwater playground. Swim for miles.
The buffet breakfast was great and kept us going all day in a beautiful high over the water setting. Dinner was down on the water edge deck . We went every night (best place in town) views brilliant ( the sunsets), service impeccable and great food which was great value, especially when you consider where you are. no rip off here for water front dining. My thanks to Torn for his wonderful and courteous service every day.
The beach was like a movie set but actually real. Big rocks, nice sand, bamboo rafts just off the beach for lazing on. Great massage. WHY AM I TELLING YOU ALL THIS?
Possibly one of the best weeks I've ever spent on holidays. Thanks everyone
Special thanks to Baas, Prang Ma and Torn. See you next year THANK YOU! And to our 4wd driver .
Great week.
Don't forget to go to banana rock cafe, 15 minutes work up the track. A tree house cafe and all the railings are driftwood intertwined. Very laid back
This an unsolicitored review , just a very happy holiday maker who got lucky

Room Tip: BB3 for your own private pool and awesome views and direct acces to the water. Be careful the steps...
