    Bad experience”

    We stayed here hoping for a final 5 days of relaxation at the end of our trip. The location is super and very quiet....but....we were met by the rudest young lady we have encountered in Thailand which set the mood for our stay. The cabins are rustic (read run down) and ours had a really bad septic smell. No utensils, cups or water. You buy everything at the restaurant which has ok food but very expensive. Towels were changed once in 5 days, monkeys steal everything. If you insist on staying here, rent scooters at the ferry as the taxi is a rip off. Plus you can go into the nearest town and not pay the hostage prices at the restaurant. Some reviews say they love it, i don't think they have travelled elsewhere in Thailand. Way overpriced and rude reception sums it up for me...but the great location is somewhat a compromise.

    Excellent views from our beachfront bungalow. It was bigger than expected, staff were friendly and helpful. Really good for relaxing and food is excellent in the restaurant. We hired a bike from there with no issue and explored the island. Would definitely return.

    Great value... The cabins were basic but clean and had everything we needed. The hotel staff were great (Thanks Nick!) and even though the hotel is a little far away from other amenities, it is on the prettiest beach on the island and Ban Phu Lae’s restaurant was excellent! I would go back.

    Great place at the end of the road”

    Great little place at the end of the road. I was afraid that my first visit to Koh Lanta 12 years ago would be my last. Back then there were no rave parties, no thumping techno music. Everything I'd read recently about Koh Lanta told me to stay far away, but then there's Bamboo Bay, down here at the end of the road. What Lanta was like a decade ago. Quiet, relaxing, pretty beach, no traffic on the road, chill crowd, and of course this great resort. First off, the staff speak excellent English and were helpful in making onward bookings. Soft spoken and sincerely respectful. Food was excellent, every meal was a treat. Even breakfast, rice soup, usually a pretty bland meal, was very tasty with hints of lemon grass. Recommend the seafood salad, sensational. Good coffee too. Stayed 2 nights in a hillside air con room. Very clean and pleasantly decorated. Cool quiet air con, hot shower, very comfortable bed. Slept great. Glass doors offered a beautiful filtered sea view, great to wake up to. Blood pressure dropped 10 points within 24 hours. Balcony was large with built in bench and a mat with pillows. Great reading spot. A bit far from anything, but that's really a good thing not a negative. Rented scooter will get you to the nearest village if you wish. Could easily and happily have stayed longer.

    Quite bungalows only steps away from its own beach. Great food. Great staff.”

    This is a great place on a nice beach with jungle clad hillsides as a backdrop. The restaurant has great food and the staff go out of thier way to make you feel at home. Its located on the quiet, less developed, southern end of the island, great for couples looking to escape the party crowd but close enough to get to all the madness for a night out on the town. You'll want to rent motorbikes to get around. Beachfront bungalows are only steps away from the beach.

    Excellent place to stay in a quite location ”

    The food is excellent, even if you don't stay you should come for dinner

    I have no need to look anywhere else to stay on lanta. Baan Phu Lae has wonderful beachfront bungalows that strike a perfect balance between simplicity and luxury. The restaurant has fantastic food and is worth visiting for dinner and the view if you happen to be staying somewhere else. Bann Phu Lae sites on a small but georgeous stretch of sandy beach with fantastic sunset views. The location is in a quite, less visited part of the island so you'll want to rent a motorbike which is easily arranged. The staff work very hard, 7 days a week for the entire season. They are very kind and authentic but some might have limited English skills. Be kind, a little Thai shows some respect and goes a long way towards breaking the ice and revealing a beautifull person who is eager to please.

    Lovely quiet beach uncrowded and awesome view from the restaurant. Difficult to swim because a lot of stones. Lots of monkeys roaming around. Agoda advertising the rooms with a capacity for 3 (a double + a single) for the hillside bungalows is not included in the price, I had to pay for an extra bed. Towel change and cleaning only every other day.

    Simple beach front accommodation on the last beach on the west side of Koh Lanta before the national park. Lovely helpful staff and beautiful remote location. Not the place to stay if you want to travel around/see lots of Koh Lanta & go out to restaurants/bars (unless you've very happy driving a motorbike around twisty steep island roads in the dark) but perfect for a secluded beach get away.

    Hillside bungalows are no Bungalows but a house with four rooms!”

    We had rent a hillside bungalow for 8 days, but there are no hillside bungalows, only two houses with four rooms, in one is living the stuff too. Tht means you hear everything from the other families, couples and stuff, even their breathing. Changing to a bungalow was impossible, we asked again and again. We left than after 7 days, getting back no money, not from baan phu lae, not from agoda, so we had payed mor than 400 € too much.

    Wonderful holiday”

    We had a wonderful 5 day stay in the very nice hillside bungalow. Perfect location in Bamboo Bay - very quiet place, beautiful nature, very close to the National Park. Staff is really kind and helpful, everything was very well organized (snorkling tour, motocycle, transfers). You can join the tours by boat directly from the beach. Great reastaurant - the food was the best we had in Thailand (also vegetarian and western food is available). You can see many monkeys, butterflies, birds, geccos and monitor lizards close to the place.

    Paradise. Everything I hoped for and more.”

    I loved this place so much. It's family-run and the staff is small and very friendly. The restaurant food is good, and the restaurant is a beautiful chill place to hang out. I booked a fan hut on the beach, but decided to go for the second-row fan hut, which was raised higher with a sweeping view. You can't go wrong (although I think the bigger aircon huts set further back wouldn't be as nice a view). The hut is basic but clean with a great place to relax in front. The beach is gorgeous and chill. If you want peace and quiet and a place to relax and do nothing, this is perfect. I can't wait to return.

    The location is perfect, right on the beautiful Bamboo Beach. Island trip to Koh Rok was unreal!! The staff could not be nicer or more accommodating--I made lifelong friends! The bungalows are not luxurious by any means, but definitely comfy and cozy. Would highly recommend! A hidden gem!

    Wonderful stay on Bamboo Bay”

    Fabulous beach, lovely huts with spectacular views and fantastic restaurant with huge servings of both Thai and Western food. Friendly, helpful and kind owners. Beach toys and floaties provided for the kids and even a few sweet cats meowing around for children to play with. Only suggestion would be for one of the main servers to crack a smile once in a while-it would make the stay even more friendly and pleasant. All and all a great place. We can't wait to return!

    Lovely quiet spot”

    The location couldn't be better. The bungalows are set on a hill overlooking a small beach. The view from the restaurant is spectacular and they'll cook whatever you like any time. The beach only has three hotels and the scene is very mellow so you'll be disappointed if you are looking to party. However the water is very clear and the sand is soft, so it's a great place to relax and enjoy the view. The national park is a short walk away and has its own small beach and a nice hiking trail. The bungalows aren't sealed tight, so expect a few ants and mosquitoes, but overall the room and bathroom were very clean.

    Hidden Gem on the Best Beach on Lanta”

    I was traveling Koh Lanta previously and had stopped into Bamboo Bay. The beach here is incredible. I was destined to come back. When I did, I booked a beach bungalow at Baan Phu Lae. It was everything I could have dreamed of. Breezy beach bungalow where you fall asleep listening to the crash of the ocean. Cozy restaurant/bar where you can charge everything to your room for the week. The staff takes very good care of you and the food/drinks are excellent. Don't be scared of not having AC if you book a bungalow without. You get a great cool breeze every night from the water and the beds have mosquito nets so you can comfortable sleep with the windows open. They keep a good monitor over the property, so we did not worry about theft of being bothered. You are quite tucked away from anything busy, its an amazing way to slow down and relax and really soak up the sun and the beach. You will need a moped to get into town if you want, but everything you need is at the resort, if you choose to not leave. The couple who runs the resort can book all your excursions for you if needed. Highly recommend.

    Not fancy, not luxurious, not 5 star, but PERFECT!”

    Only a few air conditioned rooms, others with fans, manage the Mosquitos by burning coils, cottages are rustic, paths unfinished, sometimes things are rickety, but it's the most perfect place to escape. The beach is untouched, no development other than 2 very small eco complexes, almost no one on the beach, the view is stunning, the staff are gorgeous inside and out and the food is outstanding. This has got to be my favourite place in the whole world.
