Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 4nights while travelling around Thailand .It was the perfect location to enjoy the secluded beach in Koh Lanta!the bungalows are a bit rough around the edges and dated but very clean with an abundance of fresh towels ,water, tv etc! The breakfast was yummy -the fresh pancakes our fav! Eric was very helpful from check in until leaving !The infinity pool overlooking the beautiful beach was the highlight for us though and outweighed any little niggles we had. A great hotel for those on a budget who want to stay on the beach and enjoy rest and relaxation !

Dear Valued Guests,

What more can you say that i have not said in my replies. Location, Location and location wins the day almost every time, and again the staff come a close second. The Chef is delighted his pancakes have got on the review board too :-)

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us and hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the not too distant future.

We stayed for 1 week at Twin Bay with our 2-year-old son in a beachfront bungalow.

We had a very relaxing holiday and can recommend the resort.

The location of the resort is very nice. The beautiful beach is suitable for small children, even though at low tide the water is pretty far away. The resort is located at the more quiet end of the beach. There are only a couple of other resorts and restaurants. The difference to the other end, which is much more crowded, is remarkable.
It's also easy and fun to visit Saladan by tuktuk (5 mins).

The bungalow was as we expected and there was room for a baby cod ( and later extra bed) in the bungalow.The bungalow was cleaned daily.

The staff of the resort was nice and generally the service was good. The management was helpful and it was easy to agree daily trips etc. They also responded to emails very quickly before our holiday.

There was plenty of variety at the breakfast and we liked it a lot. The lunch/dinner menu we did not like that much, but we would have eaten mainly in Saladan or other beach restaurants anyway. The opening hours of the restaurant could have been more flexible (earlier lunch and dinner would have been better for our schedule) but it was not a problem with several restaurants nearby. The resort has BBQ on several evenings, we ate once and the fish was very good.

The resort has some kind of cooperation with one of the bigger dive shops of the island. We both did a day trip with Blue Planet Divers and everything was very well organized.

There is basically one thing that I would improve in the resort. Nothing was really broken but in several places you could notice the need of small maintenance activities. In my opinion nothing costly but would require someone to focus on it.

Dear Valued Guests,

Many thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review of your stay at Twin Bay. We aim to make everyone's stay a relaxed and chilled one. Staying in the beachfront bungalows do most of the work for us because of the close proximity to the sandy beach and the beautiful views they offer.

I do hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the not too distant future.

Recently spent a great week here. "Five star" location with pool almost on the beach! Quiet and relaxing. Room was comfortable and good value. We felt quite at home. Staff friendly and helpful, especially after I had left my phone behind! Big thank you to Jon and Erik, my "little stars". We would have no hesitation in returning here and/or recommending to friends.

Room Tip: We had a garden view, which was perfectly adequate for us. Obviously best rooms were overlooking the...

Dear Valued Guests,

Those "little stars" that shine only as brightly as all the others stars in the Twin Bay team are delighted to receive your review. We felt your panic when you left your phone and were so pleased to reunite you with it after you left.

Indeed it is a five star location as so many previous reviews have mentioned, and we plan to keep it that way. Hopefully all the stars will be here to meet and greet you on your return in the not too distant future we hope.

We have been here for almost one week and we love it. The staff are great. Eric and John have been tremendous hosts. Nothing has been too difficult for them, that includes assistance leading up to this trip. Their day trip advice has been fantastic as well. The cocktails are brilliant great prices - cheaper than other locations on the beach. Great breakfasts and the BBQs on the beach are a highlight.

The beach vista is fantastic as well.

Life is too short to complain so my only complaint is that time flies when you are having fun and a fun time is what my family are enjoying. The kids love the pool and having it open 24/7 is brilliant.

So if you like a laid back affair, with a more personal experience then Twin Bay could be the resort for you, it certainly is for us.

Dear Valued Guests,

Well you are our 200th reviewer :-) Unfortunately no prizes for that but a very very big thank you for writing such a lovely review. As you and the majority say, location is fantastic and the friendliness of the staff is delightful.

As for Erik and myself, we are just a small part of the overall Twin Bay experience. We both try not to bother anyone but ultimately want everyone to chill and have a blast while staying with us.

The BBQ generally works well and as you mention the bar does do good fruit shakes. I will pass these remarks on to the staff so they feel proud of their work.

Hope we have the chance to welcome you all back in the not too distant future.

We found Twin Bay Resort as we walked along the beach.
We were looking for another place to stay as we preferred
Klong Dao Beach to Long Beach.
Erik at reception was very friendly and helpful.All the staff at Twin Bay were courteous -setting a positive atmosphere throughout the resort
Our bungalow was very clean with a generous supply of towels and bottled water each day.
The breakfasts were very good - lots of choice.
We loved the pool which was always cool and refreshing!

The location of Twin Bay along a narrow strip of land places it with a bay on each side and so there is often a beautiful breeze as you enjoy breakfast or sit in the lobby. Since the resort is sheltered in a bay, the ocean is calm. No big waves.
WiFi is available throughout the resort.
We have stayed in 2 other resorts on Klong Dao Beach and Twin Bay is our favourite.
We will definitely be back-and hopefully with our grandchildren It is a perfect location for families to share a holiday!

Room Tip: All cabins are good-within 30 meters of the beach! Family cabins are bigger with bunk beds for child...

Dear Valued Guests

It's lovely to receive a refreshingly positive review after the last two not so positive ones i have just received.

Again location and staff friendliness win the day as with many reviews. We are very privileged to situated on the best spot on Kaw Kwang beach with views of both bays. As you say all rooms are very close to the beach and the resort offers the quietness and relaxation people are looking for whilst holidaying on Koh Lanta.

I do hope we have the chance to welcome you back in the not too distant future with your family in tow.

We hired a driver and came here from Phuket for 3 nights in March 2014.
It was the cheapest hotel we stayed in but this did not reflect our enjoyment.
The location is fantastic at the top end of the bay in a quiet area but easily accessible to everything you need. The hotel was clean friendly and provided everything needed and had lovely vibe relaxed.
The bar closed at 10pm so not a wild night but that suited us fine. Breakfast covered the requirements but not over the top.
I really liked this island and hotel and would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet relaxed and friendly holiday.

Lovely to receive your review yesterday morning. It is reviews like this that make the days ahead great and the staff happy they are appreciated.

Again location comes out on top and friendliness second. It will always be hard to reverse that because of how fantastic the location is.
