This resort was just what we were looking for. A feeling of getting away from it all without actually having to travel that far or rough it!
We stayed at Bann Mai for 4 nights during low/rainy season. We booked a garden bungalow but were upgraded to a sea-view less than 3 meters from the beach. There is not a lot to do on the island which was exactly what we wanted however if you are looking for activities be aware you will have to book tours/go to Phuket.
The restaurant was very good- really tasty, big portions, beautiful views and the kitchen will teach you how to cook it all at no extra cost! Staff were friendly and helpful - provided torch, umbrella, padlock for door and snorkeling equipment free of charge. Airport transfers are an additional cost but very well managed. Garden pool was clean and of a good size. Beach is beautiful and good for swimming at high tide. Rooms were a little small but beds were comfy and there was a fridge, tea/coffee and ample space for belongings. Outdoor bathroom was not the nightmare I had feared - pleasantly surprised.
This was a great place to come and unwind. I would recommend it to couples looking for a place to do as little as possible. It is probably less suited to those wishing to meet other travelers, party or keep busy with activities.
