We stayed in an amazing cabana style bungalow, back up the hill over the bar with a veranda looking out over a beautiful bay, and what a sunset, what a view! The staff were great to deal with, even arranging our trip back to Krabi airport for an early flight.. Some things are a little rough around the edges, but...

This is one of only a few secluded beaches on Koh Lanta, and is a great place to stay. We had an a/c room with a great view over the water. Room is basic but nice enough. Mattress could use an upgrade, but linens were clean and nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Restaurant could be improved - we...

As we sit in reception waiting to go after a 3 day stay here, we are both sad to be leaving this amazing place. The staff are truly fantastic, in particular Noot, Gee, and Siam. They have made us feel special since the moment we arrived and are genuinely some of the nicest people we have met in Thailand. The...

We stayed for 5 nights at Bamboo Bay in February 2013. We loved our room with view - it was an AC room, and this was a luxury for us as our previous accomodations were very basic fan rooms on Koh Jum. It is not fancy at all, it has that backpacker feel (or 'flashpacker' if you want) that gets...

From the moment we arrived at Bamboo Bay I knew we would be looked after well when we were warmly greeted by Nook. The food is great, the rooms spacious and comfortable and the setting idyllic. All of the staff were helpful and friendly. I hope I get the chance to go back some day.

You can't beat the location, the beach is stunning and deserted. The restaurant and staff are also lovely. Unfortunately the rooms really aren't very nice ( we had a fan room). I've done a lot of travelling and I'm not usually bothered by rooms but I really didn't enjoy going back to this bungalow. With a bit of renovation this...

Bamboo bay has the great location and beauful view. It’s far from everything (located on the last beach of island) so it's very peaceful. However, the room ,especially bathroom, is bad and need urgent renovation.

We recently stayed at another hotel on the same beach for 10 days and ate at Bamboo Bay for dinner every other night during our stay. I cannot recommend it highly enough, the food is really high quality and all delicious - curries, fish, and as for the desserts - the pancakes in particular are amazing! The staff are all...

Stay here!!! One of the best views I have ever had from a hotel room. Staff was very friendly! Food was great! Great, great location on quiet beach. Best for couples. Stayed in a fan bungalow, was pretty basic and a little bit rickety, but for the price and location, I can't complain. Wifi only at dining area, and spotty...

I was lucky enough to stay at Bamboo Bay whilst travelling around Thailand and Malaysia. Having had enough of Bangkok we flew to Krabi for a night before getting the ferry across to Koh Lanta. What a welcome relief it was stepping off the ferry onto the rickety pier. Bamboo Bay kindly sent a truck to collect us. We were...

“Ask for a bamboo bungalow or wooden one. The concrete walls ones are not as good in my opinion.”

“18 was great but all bungalows have great views, if you don't mind going up steps, take the higher ones for more isolation and higher views of the bay.”
