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.

Extraordinary beautiful and well maintained! A true a paradise with exotic birds, colorful flowers and fruit trees everywhere! Modern and comfortable bungalows that have been carefully architected by the wonderdul owner - Katie. The pool, the breakfast and the facilities are just amazing beyond words. And as a cherry on top, Katie and the staff attends to and cares for the guests and the guests needs with great care and consideration. I just can't wait until I can come back!

Although this place is a little more expensive than some resorts on the island it is well worth its price tag. The owner Katie has down amazing things with the place. The rooms were spacious, super clean and well designed. You can choose to have air con or not (air con is more expensive because the cost of electricity on the island is high). Both showers were really good and the outside one worked really well. There is a nice pool area which is more than adequet for the size of the resort and the views are breathtaking. If you are lucky you might see some hornbill birds in the trees at the end of the veranda by the restaurant. Talking of restaurant we ate dinner a couple of times and the food was fresh and tasty. The owner also makes sure of any special dietary requirements which was a nice touch that you don't see in many places in Thailand. Breakfast was a good selection of Thai and western dishes including eggs cooked to order. Staff were brilliant always happy and smiling and everything is so easy here such as hiring a bike (sort of necessary on this island), getting laundry done and putting items on the room bill so you can pay at the end. Real attention to detail such as delivery of water and loo rolls to the porch every morning, bamboo straws, free coffee if you collect a bucket of rubbish from the beach. All thoughtful ideas on how to be considerate to the environment. Over all we were really impressed and look forward to hopefully returning next year. Thank you to Katie and her team for making our stay memorable ❤️

Fantastic hotel, fantastic owners. We came with a group of bikers, 26 in total to spend a few days on the island. The owners guided us around the island during 3 days free of charge. We discovered all the scenic points, the unique Hippy Bar, the Fisherman's Village with the owners. We were served a generous and excellent thai buffet for diner and enjoyed daily real value for money breakfast buffets The Resort is new and the rooms are perfect, each with an outside and inside shower. You cannot find better !

I'd say I like the place as it was quite peaceful. There was no TV in the bungalow but it was okay with us because we spent most of the time outside the bungalow anyway. However, there were a couple of things we dislike about the place.
1. Outdoor hot shower didn't work in the wind. There was a cold shower indoors but we'd always come back home in the evening wet and the temperature dropped a bit in the evening so it didn't work well for us.
2. There was a gecko that made a very loud noise at 3am every night. 3. Although the staff were pretty friendly but they were still very young and weren't paying enough attention to guests. Phayamas appeared to be short on staff, all the staff were all over the place doing everything from reception, waiting, cooking and serving.
The staff (young girls) were lack of knowledge about the attractions and tour operators. They tend to only mention the tours that they felt comfortable to explain. We actually planned to buy a tour at the hotel like we usually do on our trips. Here, we get different info. from different person each time we approached the counter. The reception/owner who seemed to know better than the young staff at the counter often disappeared and we missed the tour to Moo Koh Surin, which was the only reason why we went to Ranong for because they only do it once a week. We then stuck in Koh Phayam because we didn't have time to get a visa to go to Island in Myanmar for an alternative option so we missed that too.
Careless Phayamas reception/owner failed to provide the already booked airport transfer. We stood at the pier waited for the unarranged transport and later on we had to call Phayamas again for an arrangement and Phayamas told us to contact the bus driver at the pier for the transport. We did and we got a shared van transfer to the airport. I wouldn't say I don't like the staff. I do but I think they could've cared more.

From the beginning Katie and all the staff were so accommodating; before we got there, Katie booked the speedboat across for us and then phoned ahead and changed our seats when we realised we'd arrive at the port earlier than planned.

The resort is beautiful- they have really thought of everything, from plenty of storage space and hammocks in front, to soft, yellow lighting next to the beds.
The food is absolutely fantastic - you must try the aubergine fries and the massaman curry.

When Katie first asked if we had dietary requirements we neglected to tell her we were veggie as we, stupidly, just thought she meant allergies etc. Upon realising that there were mostly meat options for breakfast, they quickly offered us a delicious smoothie bowl. Each day following this there were great veggie options on offer- even fake bacon and eggs! It was our mistake, but they went out of their way to give us a delicious start to the day. She even gave us fruit we could take away as we planned to go out surfing.

The beer alone is a reason to stay here. It's their own brew and they have a few delicious ones on offer. It was easy to sink a few of these in the evening.

The island is small and fun to explore by bike, so even if you want to see the beaches on the other side, they're easy enough and quick to get to.

Phayamas is a fantastic place to stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

With lots of stress of house moving, my husband and I decided to take a break. We chose to stay at Phayamas Private Beach Resort, Koh Phayam for 2 weeks during 9-23February 2022. The hotel is situated in a nice location on a hill with beautiful scenery. They have an outdoor nice swimming pool, not so big but the hotel staff keeps it well cleaned daily.

The breakfast was very good. They had everyday different menu's for the guests to choose. They kept the guests feeling amazed. I think this is a smart gimmick from the hotel and we liked it a lot.
The foods in the hotel restaurant were also very delicious and the prices were affordable.

The room and the bathroom were spacious and clean.
There was a safe deposit in the room.
The bed was also good and we liked it.

The hotel owners, Khun Tai and her husband including the staff were very attentive and helpful. When we were there, my husband was sick for a few days; Khun Tai provided us some medicines. Much obliged!💓💓
There are a lots of trees and Hornbills there. The place is very peaceful and still natural. You can see sunrise every morning there.

The hotel also provided the laundry service and scooters rental. The prices were reasonable.

The only downside is that the beach in front of the hotel is quite rocky. If you want to swim, you may have to walk a little bit further, then you can swim there.

Recommendation for the hotel: To change the lights by the beds to have a little bit more softer light. The rest is good.

In summary, if you love a quiet and beautiful place with nice services, we shall recommend this hotel to you.

Phayamas is truly a special place - an oasis on a perfect island. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and serene. The perfect place to chill out surrounded by jungle greenery and the sound of the ocean only feet away. The food at the restaurant is also amazing, both Thai food and also their special homemade sourdough pizza. The staff are incredible. Not only are they extremely nice and helpful, but they also clearly work hard to provide the best experience. And it pays off!

Phamayas picked us up at the ferry, and then had scooters for rent so we could get everywhere on the island in 15mins or less. It's a great location away from crowds but close enough to everything you might need and all the beaches you want to check out. Don't hesitate to book here for your next trip!

From our initial call to check reservations to us getting on the boat home we were treated lie royalty. Family of 4 with 2, 9 year old girls who felt free to roam the resort and beach safely.

Nothing was too much for this katie and her family - the rooms were spotless and comfortable, the food amazing and the beach all to ourselves....what more could you want? Chilled craft beer thats what....and they provide that too.

Enough said. give them a call a book your holiday. its well worth the journey!

Stay here for 2 nights. The resort atmosphere is very lovely, dense with tall big trees and nice garden. Love the room with high ceiling. comfortable bed. Two shower room, one with hot shower outdoor and another one indoor no hot water. Hot water is run by gas as electricity on the island is unstable. That is fine with us. Owner are very friendly and helpful. They are good cook too. Phayamas can arrange speed boat ticket and provide round trip transfer to the pier. The beach is private and very quiet.
Will find chance to go back there again.

Would give a 10 star experience if possible. Well thought out bungalows with reading lights over the comfortable bed, hot outdoor shower, pool or ocean swimming, great food, black olives for my salad and wild hornbills visiting the restaurant. Thanks Katy, Dad and friendly staff for an amazing stay.🌴🦜

Ko Phayam, Thailand6 contributions3 helpful votes
Tack för ditt intresse för vår utväg. Här är lite användbar information - När tidvattnet är högt, är det simbart, liksom du måste gå längre. Vi är belägna i slutet av stranden, vilket betyder att det finns några stenar men mitt på stranden finns det sand. Vår strand är kanske inte den vackraste men den är den mest tyst och lugnaste. - Om du vill snorkla i Koh Phayam måste du hyra en båttur till platsen eftersom de ligger vid skärgården, som är för långt att simma där. - Skillnaden mellan delvis bungalower med havsutsikt och standardbungalower är inte bara utsikten utan också bekvämligheterna i rummet. De delvis bungalowerna med havsutsikt är utrustade med luftkonditionering, kylskåp, TV och vattenvärmare medan standardrummen är utrustade med luftkonditionering och varmvattenberedare. - Minimart är 500 m. borta vid anläggningens ingång vid huvudvägen. Hoppas det här hjälper! Om det finns några frågor eller något jag kan hjälpa till vidare, vänligen meddela mig. Katie
