Heerlijk ontspannenPosted Aug 24, 2015
Was echt genieten! Voor ons als backpackers zeker buiten budget maar wat hebben we genoten! Het ontbijt was erg goed en de roomservice wad ook heel fijn. Wat beter kan is de klamboe, die was te klein voor he't bed. En ze zouden de matrassen zo nu e'n dan om moeten draaien. Wij hadden allebei best kat van ons rug (ik zo erg dat ik een dagoedkope niet kon lopen). Dus dat was even een domper. Ook zou het fijn zijn als het personeel en paar simpele woorden engels zou kunnen spreken. Wij wilde weten hoeveel roomservice kostte en of er een zwembad wad en op beide doven konden ze geen antwoord geven. Verder het beste plekje waar ik ooit geweest ben.

Incredible experiencePosted Jul 4, 2015
We were originally planning to stay here for 3 nights but extended our stay after the first day because we loved it so much. Our hut was right on the water and tucked away in the rocks. It took about 10 minutes to walk from the reception to our hut but it made it all part of the experience. Jansom bay was a 5 minute walk away and was absolutely incredible. The restaurant was also very good. Bamboo huts made our experience at Koh Tao amazing. We loved the rest of the island too. Highly recommend Bamboo Huts!!

A slice of paradise.....Posted Apr 11, 2015 on Hotels
The huts are amazing, beautiful setting and beautiful views. Very quiet but only a 15 minutes walk to the port where there are plenty of great places to eat. There are two hidden beaches within a five minute walk which are lovely. The accommodation was excellent, obviously you are in a bamboo hut but the bed is so comfortable and the outside shower is also great. Flowers in the room, air conditioning & the view in the morning when you wake up is worth the money on it's own. The staff where very helpful and picked us up and dropped us at the port with no cost. We stayed in one of the rooms with a pool, highly recommend this for the extra money. Ignore all the reviews about the walking, if you don't want to walk for 15 minutes away from the various hotels, don't book. Fabulous.

ParadisePosted Feb 24, 2015
Pros: The location, service and huts. Janson Bay is beautiful and right at your fingertips.
Cons: Be prepared to do a lot of walking, the resort is sprawled along the rocky coast.
Location: Not far from the port and a 15 minute walk into town.
The location and bamboo huts themselves are amazing, but what amazed me first about this hotel was the amazing customer service. They have a great staff, but I would like to especially thank Khim for making our stay outstanding. There was a driver awaiting our arrival at the port the morning we came in, we were fortunate and did not have to wait until the afternoon to check in, and when we saw the room we immediately decided to extend our stay and booked a few additional nights. The waves lapped at our bedroom window and we had the most amazing snorkeling on the island right outside our private sunning deck. It was heaven. In addition the food at the restaurant was good and they even provided room service.

The Bat CavePosted Dec 30, 2014 on Hotels
Beautiful location. The bathroom is 'open air.' Unfortunately mine doubled as a literal bat cave at night. Every night several bats hung from the ceiling and used my bathroom as their bathroom. It was really gross. Getting up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night was terrifying and gross. Also, the restaurant isn't very good. The staff is lovely. It's secluded and one of the most beautiful locations I've ever been to though.

Fantastic View but lots of steps, walkingPosted Apr 28, 2014 on Hotels
Jansom Bay is great. The room is clean but room# BB7 cannot access to the sea. The rock is too high to climb down. Great view. Starlight restaurant is quite expensive. Overall is OK.

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.

Stayed for 3 nights, didn't want to leave.Posted Mar 3, 2014 on Hotels
Stayed in late February for 3 nights of our honeymoon and this was definitely the highlight of the trip. We're in our early 30's, looking to relax, snorkel, eat, drink, and enjoy nature. LOCATION: Super easy to get to with free shuttle pickup to and from the ferry. Amazing from-the-beach snorkeling to your left (nice walk to Sai Nuan beach... secluded, clean, beautiful) and to your right (Jansom Bay... super close and with a bar/cafe right there). In 3 days, we felt no real need to visit the town, but did book a day trip to Ko Nangyuan because we wanted to see it (the onsite dive center happily arranged this for us and it couldn't have gone smoother). THE ROOM: Plenty of privacy to enjoy incredible sunsets from your huge balcony and outdoor shower. Super comfy with A/C, fan, flatscreen TV (no need unless its raining), stocked minibar, and a big bed with mosquito net. We had no real issue with bugs, and any ambient sounds (lizards, waves, boats) just added to the experience. AMENITIES: Speedy room service, beautiful views from both restaurants, nice bar, good food, onsite dive center, spa (great outdoor or indoor massage), friendly staff, quick/convenient car service from huts to reception. Bit of a hike to get around but truly lovely, paved and well-lit, so no complaints. We both had a really wonderful time and would love to stay again.
