“Perfect for relaxing”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Although our stay at Bamboo Heaven Home was short it was a much needed break from the city and people. It was an amazing place with almost everything being made with bamboo. The bed was very comfortable, the small kitchen stocked with water and breakfast items, and the outside bathroom was amazing (of course it was private). The bathroom was a welcome relief from the toilet/shower combinations that are standard throughout Thailand. It was refreshing to have room to move about and have fresh air.

The owner was simply amazing! I can't say enough about him. We had money stolen from us at a previous lodging facility and we hadn't had the time to go to a bank or ATM, so we were very short on Baht - barely enough to get us a taxi. He helped us out by taking us to the airport himself which I find incredible. My daughter and I are extremely grateful for his help with our tough situation.

All and all I would definitely recommend Bamboo Heaven Home if you want some rest and relaxation.

My boyfriend and I spend 2 nights at the Bamboo Heaven Home during our 2 week trip in Thailand and the other hotels we stayed at were 4 & 5 star resorts. I have to say I wish that we had booked to stay at Bamboo Heaven Home for longer. We loved the bamboo bungalows!

The grounds are very pretty and it feels like you have your own private pool as it was quiet and the pool was outside our front door.

There are some lovely touches like the waterfall at the end of the pool, the porch is lovely for chilling out with a nice cold Singha and the bathroom is gorgeous!

One small suggestion would be to add a little colour into the bungalow, but keep it Thai inspired. Other than that we absolutely loved the place and would definitely return.

The staff were incredibly helpful and really seem to care about their guests. We were very looked after and the owner even drove us to our next hotel, as we couldn't get a taxi to take us on such a short trip.

Highly recommend Bamboo Heaven Home. We would definitely return!

Well, holiday should mean something different than our basic living standard. And Bamboo Heaven Home is the place.
It's real luxury... What do I mean, no strass, no shinny,.... Ok it's luxury for people who know what luxury is and everybody get an answer to it. It's a little piece of paradise in the middle of a tourist hub.
10 minutes for the shopping area, Chalong port and most of the night life with a car or motobike. 10 minutes by foot for Raway beach.
The bungalow are quiet big, very confortable and clean. The terrasse is the best place to be in the morning for a coffee and the swimming pool even if small is just perfect in front of your bungalow. Coffee with foot in the water what do you want to ask for more.....
Ismael the owner is always there is any request, no matter for a motobike, a ride to the airport or a little request for breackfast... :-)
A little outside the busy place you can enjoy trully peace and relaxation.

Room Tip: Kind reminder. When you book take the phone number as when you will arrive if Ismael is not aware of...

Reviewed 27 December 2012

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks, end November - beginning of December 2012. We have been to Phuket many times, and come mainly to dive the great reefs around. We have stayed in many places over the years, ranging from 5 star to little bungalow resorts, but we can honestly say that Bamboo Heaven is the best place we have stayed.
From the start, through the initial enquirey via email, to the end of our stay, Ishmael was a fabulous host. Emails were answered promptly, and had all the info we had requested. We were picked up at the airport (after a particularly tiring journey from the UK) by Ishmael and his wife, and transported to this little piece of heaven.
The setting is peaceful, and lush with vegetation and tropical plants everywhere. The small pool ran just outside every bungalow, a couple of steps from your terrace; this was very welcome after a hard days diving!
The bungalows themselves are fabulous - made in the traditional Thai way from Bamboo, but with everything you could ever need - the attention to detail was great! Our bed was one of the comfiest we have ever slept in when away from home, and the addition of a dressing room a really great touch, as you can leave all your clothes in there and keep the main bedroom tidy. Because the ceiling is so high, and the picture window covering almost the whole of the front wall, overlooking the pool, the whole impression was of air and light. There is air conditioning, but we prefer not to use this too much.
You are also supplied with a small kitchenette, which included a large fridge with a decent sized freezer (essential for the ice for your rum & coke :-) ), a microwave, kettle, coffee maker and sink. Tea, and very nice coffee is also provided (well, Ishmael is French!) along with milk, sugar, bottled water & fruit juice.
The bathroom was divine - stylish and half open in the Thai style. A lot of thought has gone into this, and it is all very spa like with pebbles and bamboo fittings - and the plumbing for the loo actually is superb - not a feature in even some of the 5 star hotels!
As a host, Ishmael is fantastic. We know Phuket well, having been so many times, but if you don't know the area, he will take you into Rawai, and show you where the local shops, bars and restaurants are. The motorbike we had requested was waiting for us, so after a quick shower, we went off to the local 7/11 to stock up on essentials (rum & coke!) and scope the village for somewhere to eat. The centre of Rawai is 5 minutes away by motorbike, and there is a wide variety of places to eat, with seafood in abundance - well, it is a Sea Gypsy fisherman village after all!. The beach isn't the best on Phuket, but a 15 minute ride will bring you to the best Phuket beaches, so if that is your thing, it's a great base!
Chalong Pier, where the Dive Boats leave from, is about 15 minutes away down a very good road - handy when you have to be there at 7.45 am!
I really just wanted to thank Ishmael & his team for a lovely 2 weeks. Bamboo Heaven only has 5 bungalows, and I think the attention to detail and the personal service reflects this. If you are looking for a peaceful base to explore Phuket, you really couldn't do better than here - close enough to glorious beaches, and nightlife, with a really good variety of restaurants & bars. We will definitely be making Bamboo Heaven our home on future visits to Phuket.

My girlfriend and me stayed at Bamboo Heaven Home end October beginning of November 2012 for eight nights. Pick up service worked perfect - the owner a lovely guy from France came with his wife to pick us up. At arrival at the ressort we asked for a rental scooter (at around 10 o'clock) and not even 15 Minutes later the scooter was there (at an unbeatable rate). The owner (Isamael) offered us to show us the area around the next morning of what we of course took advantage...
The ressort itsself is a beautiful place peaceful und very lovely to look at. The bungalows are built of wood and bamboo only they're very spacious, comfortable and look like in a southsea dream... All Bungalows have their own microwave oven, fridge and Lavabo as well as a shower and climatisation.
Atmosphere at Bamboo Heaven Home is very familiar - you get any assistance in planning your holiday you could immagine. Short - if you want to spend a good time in Phuket in a quiet place but close to most Points of interest as Rawai Beach (3 Minutes), Kata (15 minutes), Karon or Patong and close to where the diving boats leave from (7 Minutes) then this is your place to stay. What you get is by far more, then the price would make you expect!!!!

My boyfriend and i stayed here in December 2011 and absolutely loved it! The bamboo cottages are lovely; super spacious and relaxing, yet still has everything we needed! Peaceful atmosphere and great hosts. We loved the 'outside' bathroom. An amazing and unique experience! One of our favourite places in Thailand :)
