Amazing ExperiencePosted Mar 15, 2014
Pros: Rustic charm, great food, friendly staff, stunning views, access to nature. Great for snorklers and scuba divers.
Location: Hotel very close to town, which was not too touristy but had plenty of places to eat, drink, get massages and shop. Would recommend Karma Bar.
Both Koh Tao and Bamboo huts much nicer than expected; very quaint, beautiful scenery, relaxed and charming. Ferry was half an hour late and our taxi driver was not around to collect us, but once we phoned to say we had arrived, the driver came to pick us up within ten minutes. We were taken straight to the reception at the resort and luggage taken straight to our room while we checked-in. Manager took us to our room showing us the resort on our way, and introducing us to staff members. This was very helpful, as it immediately gave us some bearings and friendly faces to rely on. The bamboo huts are situated in the rocky cliffs, so can be a tough walk to get anywhere, but everything else outweighs this as an issue! Room was very pleasant with a fantastic view of the sea and sunset from the balcony. Main beach on resort is Jansom Bay; a lovely beach with crystal clear blue water, palm trees and tropical fish. Food on the resort is of a very good quality. Scenery and setting of the Starlight restaurant lovely. Breakfast in a nice setting with a bespoke omlette chef made the best! Price for food and drinks is very fair and broad ranging. All the staff on the resort were very friendly, helpful and naturally courteous.

ParadisePosted Jan 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
Our room was much larger than expected, had its own deck with sunbeds (totally worth paying extra for the upgrade) and had all the amenities you need, while still being very rustic. It's the perfect combination of luxury and nature. Yes, the walk to the breakfast restaurant is about 10minutes, but we loved the adventurous path through the jungle (plus a little extra exercise on vacation never hurts). The beach (Jansom bay) has the perfectly clear water and was never too crowded, even though we visited in high season. The water is very clear and having the reef right there makes great snorkeling without taking any extra trips. The breakfast was pretty amazing and had variety of thai and western dishes, with delicious fresh eggs made to order. We were surprised by the service and amenities of this level from a 3 1/2 star hotel. It's truly one of a kind place that deserves only raving reviews!

Just a wonderful time over the water!Posted Apr 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Bamboo Huts are a fair walk out of town, but totally worth the effort! Their breakfast buffet was tasty and fresh, and the staff were very attentive. Even if you don't stay here, try a romantic dinner at Starlight, the restaurant. It's just beautiful and has delicious food! I would hesitate to recommend Bamboo Huts to people with mobility issues, as the walk through the jungle is full of stairs with not many rails to hang onto. I would definitely stay here again, though!

Charming and romantic!Posted Apr 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were in Bamboo Hut 17, which is nearly the farthest from the hotel's main public areas. It was so romantic and had a wonderful view! My only hesitation would be if we had our mobility limited, as the walk through the jungle is quite hilly. The restaurant was fantastic for a romantic dinner, and breakfast was always fresh and had a good selection. We would love to stay here again!

Exceptional placePosted Jan 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
The best compliment you pay this place is the way everyone tries to take pictures of it as they pass on the ferry into Koh Tao. It's an exceptional place in a truly stunning location. One warning : it IS secluded from the main resort , lots of narrow paths through the jungle!
