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.

This was the worst resort I have ever been to. One negative which isn’t necessarily the fault of the resort is that there are TONS of children. If you don’t want to be bugged by crying kids all day and night, then go somewhere else. Our room was filled with these ant/flies all

We were excited to stay at this resort as we were staying in Koh Lanta for several more days than we had elsewhere in Thailand, because of the longer stay we decided to pay more and stay at this apparently amazing resort. Upon check-in the first thing we noticed were the

Our second visit (stayed in 2017) and now even better, which we didn’t think was possible. Location is perfect, beach has everything for a truly relaxing holiday. Neighbouring beach Bamboo with no resorts just a beach bar is paradise. Good accommodation (varies from small

Relax Bay is truly incredibly relaxing. The highlight here is the beach. Beautiful sand, plenty of trees for shade, hammocks, swings, and beach cabanas with comfy bean bags for lounging. A great beach bar and beautiful open-air restaurant add to the serenity. Because of the rock

Great location - Relax bay is stunning. Really quiet but not too remote - 4/5 restaurants along the beach (all considerably cheaper than hotel restaurant). Good (and plentiful!) breakfast. Nice pool. Stayed in PH which was a 2/3 minute walk up steps to top of resort. Simple room

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).

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.
