Relax bay is not your average hotel. If you look for a traditional hotel with AC, concrete walls and all amenities you can find in any deluxe hotel anywhere in the world. Well, we are not the place to be. Our rooms are Huts, spaced between 5 and 10 m from each other and set in a as Jungle-ish possible setting. There is almost no concrete and we constructed our bungalows under the trees. This means they are in the shade. Furthermore the grass-type roofs are overhanging and give protection against the sun and around the bungalows we planted flowers and plants to block out the sun. Shade means coolness but also darkness. Bamboo, a living natural product also soaks up the moisture in the air. We air the rooms, but they always smell a bit Bamboo-ish. They do not smell damp and not well kept, they smell natural.Our roofs are made from grass, so they disintegrate after a time. They are not as waterproof as concrete, or tar roofs. However they are much cooler. and they look much better. Prices on the net should be the same everywhere , but you are best served by making a direct reservation at the hotel.

The location, the restaurant, the reasonable prices, the deserted beach, the proximity of the ferry port, the chillout area with hammocks and shade, the massages, the hermit crabs made it all an unforgettable experience.

The beach is clean and wide, water is not very transparent though. Haven't seen any surfing. From Bangkok you can take an internal flight to Krabi Airport and then a minivan to Koh Lanta (they usually drive you to the hotel). More

euuuh. Well children are noisy, run around, en for most of the time, parents dont really look out for them and let them behave as they wish. for example: some families let their children run and play hide and seek in the middle of the restaurant. Or, they do pipi and kaka, right in front of the restaurant on the beach. so, yes, i gues a lot of hotels are kind of fed up.
But, here in relax, we have a bit more patience, and i have children too, and basically children are children and they will be our next future customers. And, its not their fault their run around, its not their fault that they shout etc.... Its the parents who should take care and teach them a education. so, in relax, we fortunately have most of our parents who take that into account. so, children are kind of welcome. But not to much too, as otherwise one loose the single and couple travelers . And without them you cant survive. or you have to specialize.
But to clarify: we do accept children. ;-)
alain. ( i have 3. 1x 28j, 1 x 25 j and 1 5 year. ( and they all needed to be disciplined. And we all went adn still go on travel when they were small. :-), adn we also have children menu etc... and our staff loves children.
