“Lovely place, friendly staff, great budget & a beautiful beach”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

I loved the place. Rooms were excellent - I didnot want a fivestar but a comfy, rural atmosphere. It has all the facilities of a city hotel yet preserved the " COUNTRY " look. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Great value for my money!

I returned to stay at Milky Bay at the beginning of November having stayed their back in 2009 and once again I was overwhelmed and fell in love with the resort all over again. The quality of all the bedrooms is second to none fresh,clean with plenty of Thai touches which is really nice. I love the fact that all the bungalows are spaced out throughout a tropical forest - the layout also lends it self to nice privacy for guests. All the staff are fantastic the really go out of their way to provide a professional and friendly service. The food and restaurant is really great, plenty of Thai choice and amazing fish BBQ's ( we had a romantic seafood BBQ for two *would highly recommend*)
The pool and private beach sit side by side...its all the extra touches that stand out in my mind complimentary afternoon Tea, the staff always happy to play a game of table tennis or pool with you and before you check out don't leave without a massage by far one if the best I've had to Thailand.
Having been fortunate to travel to many islands and try out many resorts Milky Bay tops my list and I'm already looking forward to returning...

It is the best feeling to receive a review with the title "piece of paradise"Thank you thank you.A return guest is the ultimate sign that we might be doing things right so we are so happy that you enjoyed it just as much second time around.The massages are something all guests should take advantage of as they are really reasonably priced and so enjoyable so again thrilled that you enjoyed it and topped it off with some afternoon tea.Such positive feedback is so rewarding and we will strive even harder to make your next trip even better.

We had an amazing stay here. It is really value for money! It is cheaper than a lot of other resorts on the island but it is much better. We are planning a wedding on Koh Phangan and look at 15 other resorts for our guests to stay and in the end we picked Milky Bay where we had been staying.
The rooms are clean and nice. The grounds are kept very well. The pool area is fantastic and the beach is beautiful! We had such a good time here.
The highlights:
1) The staff - I have never come across staff that are friendlier. Everyone smiles all the time and chat to all guests. They will help you with anything you need
2) Food - all the food was really good quality and value, especially the fresh fish BBQ they have every evening
3) Thai massage - they have massage ladies on site, its the best thai massage I have ever had, they also do great facials
4) Their taxi service!

I am having my wedding on the island and all my guests have been recommended to stay at this resort.

Its in a convenient location - close to most areas on the south of the island

Do yourself a favour and book here!

Room Tip: All rooms have AC. We booked superior rooms which were lovely - I recommend B1 for a superior room

Stayed in this resort for 3 nights and it was worth the price and effort. The staff are all wonderful and nice. The room is clean and tidy. The beach is clean and nice with lots of fish in the deep i guess. The resort over all design is great and fun.

With a company taxi available to pick you up/drop off. This helps a lot.
The rooms are large, comfy and clean. The friendly staff from reception to the waiters, ground staff and kitchen staff made me feel welcome. The bamboo forest keeps you cool no matter how hot or humid it is.

On booking this hotel through the tourist office in bangkok we were not sure what to expect when we arrived. We were met off the boat by the Milky Bay taxi and taken straight to the hotel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming when we arrived.
We stayed in one of the beach hut style rooms and loved it. The price was fantastic for the room and the breakfast. Everywhere was clean and the food really nice. The view from the beach was fantastic and the little walk out to the sand bank was fantastic and a great place to lay out in the sun.
Would recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable relaxing stay and not wanting to be right next to any full moon parties however the parties are within easy reach.
