Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Nong Thale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Undoubtedly the best Ritz Carlton we have ever stayed in and definitely up there as one of the best hotels.
This place only has a small number of rooms and a very personalized service, Our children had a great time (they tailor the kids activities to suit you).
The apartments are spacious, the outdoor bath is fun and the butler service great, always with a smile and nothing too much trouble.
Food in the resort is expensive, but given the luxurious settling and the quiet laidback atmosphere it is worth every penny.
Will definitely be returning.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Phulay Bay in November. My boyfriend actually won three nights here and enjoyed the luxury. The rooms are magnificent and the service is fantastic.
Great for honeymooners or anniversaries.

We loved the room with the two baths (indoor and outdoor) and we loved the shower which is two in one so you can shower together.
The toilet isn't very private with clear glass doors surrounding it but if you're with your partner it doesn't matter.

We loved the sunset bar and walking around the resort. Our butler, Sabai was amazing and very helpful.

After three days we found it all a bit much and I don't actually miss it as it was such a full on experience.

I would stay again but only on very special occasions! Definitely something to experience!

Designed to dazzle, the architecture at this resort takes your breath away from the moment you arrive. We arrived on a private boat transfer from another resort, Paradise resort on Koh Yao Noi, booked with our travel agent Andaman Adventures, with whom we also booked all of the 4 resorts we stayed at on our custom-designed island hop through the region, getting good prices everywhere (we got a free night at the Phulay Bay and, though the nightly rate was higher than the rate on agoda, after we factored in the free night the price we got ended up quite a bit lower than agoda’s). As soon as you arrive at this resort the stunning entrance pagoda signifies that this hotel is going to demolish your expectations. The rooms are amazing (huge beds, opulence all around, really more than 5 star luxury, I’d give it 6 stars). Other highlights (a) beautiful infinity pool (b) sea view (c) a 24 hour butler (d) nearby Tubkaek beach is a good one, though the resort does not have a great beach frontage (e) fab restaurants – we have a veggie family member which caused problems elsewhere, but not here.

Sunset with a lychee cocktail and paradise views, infinite pool and infinite bed, delicious meals, siesta in a hammock hanging from a palm tree, private boat to visit surrounding islands and surprise anniversary barbecue under the stars. This hotel, this location and the team that runs it made our family trip an unforgettable experience.

We just concluded a 4 night stay at this terrific resort. The hotel, location, and staff make this property a real gem. I don't think we have ever stayed anywhere that had a staff to compare. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special. This is what 5 star is all about. Our thanks to Ana, Carlos, Tanya, Tee, Ken, and all of the dedicated team at Phulay Bay.

Room Tip: I highly suggest you go for the pool villa room. Amazing!

I stayed at Phulay Bay with my family to celebrate the anniversary of my parents and we had a very pleasant experience.

The hotel is located in an incredible spot, in the middle of a natural park and it's completely integrated in the nature. Only 54 rooms makes it the perfect place to relax without seeing any other guest. The rooms are spacious and the bed is just unbelievable (4mx 2.5m!!).

We enjoyed the drinks at the sunset bar ( don't miss it!), lunch by the infinite pool and a delicious seafood and meat bbq dinner under the stars.

But, above all, what makes this place unique is the level of service and the detail orientation of the staff. Ana, Carlos and Anuj were extremely welcoming and attentive. And Yid, our butler, was on top of everything!

Absolutely recommended!!
