Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This resort is extremely interesting, neat and tidy and the staff are always happy and smiling and so willing to help in any way necessary. There is only one suggestion we feel would be a bonus to the resort and that is hand rails next to the steps up to the rooms and also badly needed on the steps down to the beach. This is not a problem for youngsters but we noticed there are a great many 'seniors' here where a rail would make for assurance and safety and ease of movement.

This resort is hard to beat in this area. Amazing location right on the beach, lush gardens, lovely bungalows, and really friendly owners. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and welcome. The bungalows are either down towards the front garden or at the rear in the lovely grounds heading up to the main access road. We had one down towards the front with 2 bedrooms and a really clean and pretty spacious bathroom. There are no fridges, hot water, or TV in the room so plan for that if it's important. The food was good and there's enough choice to suit most. Overall, we had a great time and we can't recommend it highly enough. Thanks Todd and Da (and Donut and Gasoline) for a brilliant time.

This report is very simple but enjoys a good location, it is located practically in the jungle in front of the beach, although it is not too well maintained, it still offers good feelings, the staff is friendly and the service is average. The price is appropriate to the offer

I didn't stay here but I had dinner here twice and the cook is a true artist! The vegetable green curry was very good (it's considered being the best on the island) but the fish curry is just UNBELIEVABLE and I plan to come back many more times! I guarantee you'll love it and will return like I did...believe me :-)

Starlight resort is a very friendly and beautiful resort on the best beach in Koh Phayam (swimming is possible at low tide also). The bungalows, a mix of bamboo and bric, are all situated in a lush beautiful garden. You can watch Hornbills feeding every afternoon. The staff are amazing and the food is great. I wish we could have spent more time there.

We stayed here for a total of 3 nights whilst on Koh Phayam. We originally booked two, left to go and stay somewhere else but found that it could not compare to Starlight Resort, so we returned!
The land around the bungalows is absolutely beautiful, set in the middle of a jungle whilst only a short walk to a beautiful, peaceful and deserted beach! The water is so calm and there are so many different restaurants and bars around the beach, allowing you to stay all day.
The owner, Todd, was extremely sociable with all guests and took time each day to speak with us. He had great knowledge about the island and answered any questions that we had.
The rooms were extremely spacious, very clean and great facilities inside.
They have fans placed inside the mosquito nets which we thought was a great idea after all other accommodation we had visited, the fans were on the outside and you couldn’t feel it’s effect at all!
All staff on site were extremely helpful and any food or drinks served from the restaurant were very nice too.
We would of course recommend this place to anyone and would certainly like to thank all the staff for making our stay at Starlight Resort amazing! We will definitely be returning one day.
Thank you.

we stayed for 2 nights and the view from the balcony and room was gorgeous! Right over the beach. For that it is well worth the stay (if you chose Bungalow A1).
The price did seem a little high for high season, and so was dissappointed that there was no blanket or top sheet available (only a bottom sheet so we had to use our towels and clothing to cover us when the temperature dropped....) There was no toilet paper in the room :(
I would perhaps like to return in high season and see if it is different then.
Great Location and the owner was chatty:)

I was in April on Ko Phayam and met Todd, the owner of the Starlight Resort on the northern end of Buffalo Bay. I stayed in his resort and besides of Todd being a wonderful pal and person, the beach was all for myself. I was many times in Thailand at different places but I now found "my" island….. It is not flooded with tourist, people on the island are relaxed and friendly, no cars the perfect get-away spot !!
The Starlight resort reminds me of my first trips to Thailand in the 80`s and the huts are very clean and have great bath rooms (I had "B" I think, next to beach). The resort has a great restaurant and Todd is always there to help. I fully recommend this resort, the place, the beach and the island ……. but I should`t write that ….. I hope it stays quiet , friendly, beautiful and un-discovered but I know Todd and the others island inhabitants will take care !
