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.

The Bamboo Huts - as part of the Charm Churee Resort. Koh Tao Bamboo huts is a amazingly beautiful and we very excited to literally be above the ocean. It seems great value to have this type of view. Hut - The hut itself is beautiful with every convenience you could hope for and views out to the ocean. Service - I cannot compliment this resort enough, the service is excellent, staff here are always so polite and happy. Food - The breakfast was very good and we can also recommended the starlight restaurant.

We love this place very much. Good place for relax. You can even snorkelling in front of your room. But if you come with your parents, please make sure that they fit & firm because from your room to restaurant or reception is quite far.

The bamboo huts over the water with private pools are absolutely gorgeous. Something worth traveling to Koh Tao for. During the day it felt like a dream to drink coconut water from a fresh coconut on our private deck and then swim in a pool hanging over the ocean. The restaurant is beautiful with great food. However, depending on the hut that you get, be aware that the walls and ceiling are not completely sealed...leaving room for bugs to enter. My husband and I thought the bug net over our bed was cute decor, but it was actually crucial for to us to sleep. Our bathroom was gorgeous and outside, but at night that's pretty scary. We walked out in the dark to see green goo everywhere and our toiletries tossed around. In the morning the hotel said we may have had a few bats visit. They helped take care of it by hanging a net to prevent them from coming back our second night. Thank you! Overall the hotel was beautiful and the huts are unreal. Just be careful if you are afraid of noises at night or bugs.

I’m struggling to know where to start with this one. I can’t think of a time I’ve had an overall more miserable experience at a hotel while on vacation. I note, before beginning my long list of problems with this place, that it is one of the most expensive hotels I’ve seen Thailand. In other words, you expect comfort and basic services. Location. It’s located 1-2 miles outside the main town. They do not offer car service into town. The “resort” is very spread out; you’re looking at another mile if you’re at the far end. Taxis are basically nonexistent in town. I like to walk under normal circumstances, so whatever, except there was a massive storm going on. Language. Very little English was spoken. An expensive “resort” that claims to cater to English-speaking tourists should have someone on staff all the time who speaks English. (I have a hunch that there was more English spoken than they let on; every time they wanted something from us, communication was perfect; almost every time we needed something, we were met with seeming incomprehension. Very odd.). Disaster (Mis)Management. We spent 5 nights, not by choice. We spent our first two nights in a room directly over the water. Very rough facilities, terrible bed and pillows, but beautiful view. On day two, we get told that there is a major storm coming (“Pabuk”, news reports said it was the first storm like this in 60 years), and that the ferry service (only ingress/egress) on and off the island has been cancelled for days!! I do not believe for a second that they didn’t know about this mess before hand, but instead they waited to tell us until AFTER it was too late to get off the island and then innocently asked us if we wanted to extend our stay. As if we had a choice?! Anyway. The next day, the winds are already high, it’s pouring rain, and hurricane force winds and 30 foot waves are being predicted, along with massive storm surge. I live in Houston, and have lived through some hurricanes. I take them seriously. I’ve mentioned we’re in a room on stilts over the water, and the place isn’t exactly made out of concrete. I called the front desk at noon and suggested that we should move rooms to one less likely to flood or disintegrate in the wind. They pooh-poohed my concerns, said these storms were normal, and we didn’t need to move. Against my better judgment, I said ok. WE THEN GOT EVACUATED AT MIDNIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HURRICANE!!!! So we arrive at our new room up the hill, soaking wet and stressed out. The new room is small and of course no view or anything, but they say it’s $100 US a night, or half the price of the other one, so I say ok. It’s not like we had any negotiating power under the circumstances. We spend the next however many days hiding from the storm as much as possible. We have to wade into town on foot once a day for food because THEY SHUT THEIR KITCHEN DOWN!!! They claimed to offer room service, but we tried, and it was not edible. My “spaghetti bolognese” appeared to be some sort of unidentifiable canned meat poured over overcooked (microwaved?) pasta; my boyfriend’s pasta looked like the green food monster from the old Calvin and Hobbes cartoons. So wading through flood waters it was. Of course I got sick, and am still fighting it almost two weeks later. At checkout time, I find out that I’m being charged full price (more than $200 US) for the night that we were evacuated!!! They said that we had to pay that price because we spent the day in the room; it didn’t matter that we didn’t sleep there. (I note their English was fine to insist on this, of course, even though no one “could” understand my request for extra pillows). I pointed out that I had asked to be evacuated to a safer room at noon. They didn’t care. They knew that we had to leave to get on the first ferry out (the only one that would get us to our flight to Bangkok and home), so we were under time constraints and over a barrel. They completely took advantage of that situation, which I find personally immoral and disgusting. I also note that *having lived through hurricanes* spending the day in a rickety room over the water with the wind howling around me was NOT A RELAXING EXPERIENCE!! It was horrifying. And I got to pay for it. Double. I could go on for a long time, but you get the idea. These are not nice people. If they have the opportunity to take advantage of you, they will. They do not care about your safety. They do not care about your comfort. Stay somewhere else. No one loves empty coastline more than me, and the scenery isn’t worth it. I promise.

Finding the hotel is hard. They share a reception with Charm Churee but there is no indication that its for Bamboo huts as well. The road to the rooms is horrible. Lots of walking and small stairs everywhere. The rooms need maintenance and to be updated. Staff could have been more informative. TV in room did not work. The beds mattress was old and uncomfortable. Air conditioning kinda worked but not very well. The view was fantastic though. Did not eat at the restaurant because it is also overpriced. It definately is not a 4 star establishment, maybe 3 but with a 1 star bed. For the price they charge it is not worth it, unless you want to pay alot for a view.

The Bamboo Huts is the perfect to have a taste of a small island experience. The bungalows are spread over a huge area at the coast but immersed in the jungle, since it's not accessible by car, get ready to walk a bit (but don't worry about your luggage, the staff will bring it to your bungalow) to reach the breakfast area, the reception or the town (around 15 minutes from the reception). The bungalow we got was simply amazing, it's been the place we stayed at in Thailand. It was build on a rock directly over the sea, the view was simply stunning and we could enjoy our private sunset (the whole complex is exposed west). The furniture were very nice and we really enjoyed the open air shower. The bed was very comfortable and we appreciated the AC. We had no problem with insects inside the room. The service was perfect, they arranged a transer from and to the pier when we arrived and when we left, and they have been always helpfull answering our questions. The breakfast was very good and we can also recommand the starlight restaurant. We went there at beginning of may (low season) and we were almost the only guests, which we enjoyed very much.

The best experience!!! Our hut had an amazing view. We could have spent all day on our balcony. The resort has a private beach and cove for snorkeling. Best snorkeling we have experienced. Free equipment rental. We didn’t need to do a tour. We could have spent the entire trip at the resort. Only negative is that there is a lot of walking and stairs to get to your hut.

Rustic and quiet, yet unbelievably charming, The Bamboo Huts was a fabulous experience at a great price. We had a Cabana on the water and loved the charm of the room. The outdoor shower was also one of the best parts. The staff was beyond accommodating and made sure our stay was perfect. Highly recommend if you're looking for a little more quiet away from the techno tunes of Sairee beach

When you wake up you can see the amazing view of the sea suddenly..and in the evening sunset is so beautiful peaceful and make you relax on your holiday. Yup can go in the sea within fews steps. In day time you can go around the island to do snorkeling you will see fresh beautiful nature. I love it and want to go again.

The garden is not wild at all it s abandoned and full of plastic bottles, cans..etc The food is just ..awful, the dinning room is crappy Same for the room b14 Superb location, superb view nice gazebo The sunset view is stunning But all the bed sheets are dirty like the towel The good point Nice staff!except at the Beach the Janson one The localization, it s true you have to walk but you feel like Robinson and you are closed to downtown It s peaceful, the beaches are genuine with nice corals It s really pity These place can be The Place of Koh Tao but as no one take care of it it ll be worst and worst !
