Great location, beautiful surrounding. Isolated from other beaches, quiet, monkeys running next to the hotel, jungle sounds, just perfect relaxing place. Just love it! Nice staff, good breakfast, clean.

The hotel itself is pretty nice. The location is OK if you are planning to stay on Tonsai. If you want to visit Railay, it is a treacherous climb over rock hill. Definitely something you don't want to do at night. My main issue with the hotel is that the someone entered the hotel, stole my credit card and cash,...

Relative luxury in a lesser furnished beach area mostly full of bungalows (some of which are nice, some are pretty beat). Any amenity/activity Tonsai offered is also located directly on site of the resort. Loved the feel of the Tonsai area and people as a whole, more than any other area I visited in my 2.5 weeks. Much less touristed...

Great Location, Very Good and Varied Breakfast, Walk to Railay 15-30 minutes, Perfect for Climbers and to Relax with Air-Con Rooms. Villas are Great Value in low/wet season. Not so many activities for non-climbers.

very very hard to get to. if you're carrying a suitcase, you're screwed. The roads are not built yet. and all gates to the hotel are shut, so basically you get there through the beach or through the water system running in the jungle. No WiFi anywhere! No hot water or electricity between 09:00-19;00 and even then, the water is...

Resort is located in the bay, which is isolated from rest of the region and you can reach it only by boat (10 minutes from town). Around are clifs, 3 other bays with beaches and jungle other resorts of almost any kind and restaurant - all accessible on foot. Highly recommended!

Over-priced and taking away from the local community. Walk all the way down the beach to where the fishing boats are and hang a right. A whole vibrant community is yours to discover! There are plenty of bungalows, restaurants, and resort-free Thai hospitality waiting just a few metres up the jungle path!

We stayed here to be 2 minutes from the climbing on Tonsai Beach. We have stayed on Tonsai through its many phases over the years, but were keen to have AC, wifi, and daily services which were pretty unavailable to Tonsai previously. It was great. Quiet, sealed rooms, hot showers, complimentary waters and room cleaning daily, new beds, and a...

email Communication from Tonsai Bay Resort Hotel was swift and helpful during the booking process. We amended our group booking about 4 times, requesting extra days either side of the original dates, as we planned our trip as we went along. We received a lovely welcome from Oom who it seemed really had our best interests at heart. We knew...

This was a little bit more then our budget, but heavily discounted due to it bring low season so we couldn't resist and decided to book. Great little bungalows, spacious, air con works well. They said no electricity during the day (so no air con) but ours worked the whole time we were there. Very close to the beach, and...
