    Beautiful & fun! ”

    Thailand is gorgeous and this boat trip is a way to experience the beauty up close. Don’t expect to sleep much or feel super clean, but you won’t care much! If you are worried about it, there is a way to do part of the trip for a cheaper price and I believe you can always decide to upgrade it to the full night if you’re having a good time. If being near heavy drinking sounds awful to you, maybe leave early or just go to sleep early but it may be loud. They will encourage drinking and that might not be a bad thing for you. My advice is to be friendly from the start with others so that way you aren’t waiting til you’re drunk to socialize!

    Awesome time on the Maya Sleepaboard. I booked this tour because it hit a lot of places I wanted to see around Phi Phi island and you get to sleep under the stars on a boat. Everything is planned and paced out very well, they know exactly what their doing. Don’t expect to sleep much though, we spent a good amount of time drinking and dancing on the roof of the boat.

    AMAZING!!!! YOU HAVE TO DO THIS!”

    When I arrived to check-in for my overnight stay on Maya Bay Sleepaboard I was a little wary as with it being low-season I was the only one booked for the over-night stay part of the excursion. The staff convinced me it was an experience I would regret not doing if I changed my mind and they were SO RIGHT! The staff are super helpful (even those that couldn't speak my language) and the boat is bigger than I expected. It spans over 3 decks and you can walk around as you please. Just a few of the amazing memories I have from this trip are: Swimming in the pitch black at Maya Bay with the glowing plankton Taking the speed boat out to see the monkeys at Monkey Beach Taking photos of the beautiful lagoon at Maya Bay Sleeping under the stars Watching THE most amazing sunrise Being out in the bay and being the only one around Swimming with black-tip sharks Diving into the coral reef seeing lots of tropical fish and sea creatures Drinking buckets of rum on the top deck of the boat Thai food

    Dope! Must do”

    This tours great, you’ll see things you won’t see anywhere else: feeding monkeys, swim with glowing plankton, kayak/snorkel/swim among coral reefs — it’s the total package. Nighttime activities and entertainment is good, food is excellent and sufficient in quantity. Staff is engaging, excellent, playful and fun. Boat features/cleanliness: bathrooms are mediocre (kind of dirty, but that’s pretty much the standard for bathrooms across Thailand). No shower area. Sleeping on the sun deck was actually surprisingly awesome, they provide a sleeping bag and pillow that is really helpful. Overall a great tour, just don’t expect a super luxurious boat/bathroom, but definitely DO expect an amazing adventure.

    Memories to last a lifetime ”

    From reading reviews, I knew when I booked Maya Bay Sleepaboard, that my husband and I probably wouldn’t be getting much sleep, but we decided it was worth giving up a restful night for the opportunity to swim with bioluminescent plankton and spend the night on a boat. The crew was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, and the scenery was stunning. Swimming with the plankton was surreal. Most of the group left after the plankton so only 11 of us (+ the crew) slept on the boat. We had a small group, so our night wasn’t too wild. We enjoyed our “buckets”, some fun music & a drinking game, then settled down. My husband and I were able to double up our mats so we slept pretty comfortably for a few hours on the top deck. I will never forget falling asleep under the stars & waking up to the beautiful sunrise. cons: -Hard to find the office -so much trash in the Bay

    A special experience to stay in Maya Bay”

    Good service

    (+) A special experience to sleep in Maya Bay (due to bad weather condition). Good service. If you are looking for comfortable room with your own toilet etc... try to stay somewhere else. If you are looking for a special experience and good experience, try this sleepaboard. The weather condition was nasty, and we ended up staying in a small hut in Maya Bay, which is a great experience. There are travelers complaining about the weather condition, but that's not within the control of the staffs. At least, the staffs tried to make things comfortable and entertain the guests. It could be cold and wet, due to the weather situation. It is not for everyone. You can stay in comfy hotel anytime, sleeping in Maya Bay is an unique experience.

    Amazing time with great like-minded people and awesome natural sights”

    Our time at Maya Bay Sleepaboard Resort was great. Even though Maya Beach is currently closed, we did get to see the bay at sunset - a unique experience that lets you take your time to savor such a naturally beautiful set up. The other guests had a similar mindset - people in their 30s looking to have a great time swimming, snorkeling and partying once the sky is dark. All of this, combined with the beauty of Phi Phi Islands make this stay aboard a mix of experiences that are enjoyable overall: you get to experience absolute silence while paddling through one of Phi Phi Le's enclosed natural bays; next, you are looking at the sunset, and the stars appear in the sky as the sun goes down. That is followed by a bonfire at a smaller beach, and the day ends back aboard where barbecue and drinks await - the party just got started. This is definitely recommended - it's a way of enjoying Phi Phi that is much different (better) than the usual day trips from Phi Phi Don, Krabi or Phuket.

    Unique experience”

    Overall, an interesting and unique experience. Would recommend if looking to spend a night in Phi Phi. Recommendations for improvements: change the snorkeling area - it wasn't great; don't push alcohol so much on the boat - people will make their own decisions; and stick to time tables - would have been great to actually be earlier to the beach in the morning, as there were already a lot of other groups there and boats in the way (which was by far the most annoying thing about Maya Beach).

    Exceptional Experience!”

    Everything is well planned. From start to finish the experience was one of the most incredible of my life! Such a beautiful location for all of the kayaking and snorkeling. One of the best parts was playing with the plankton. If you get a great group of people like I did then it is truly special! Maya Bay was as good as expected and awesome to get it almost to yourself. Maya Bay Sleep Aboard is something truly special.

    I took this trip with my niece for her 31st birthday. The staff was excellent. Marco, Kiko and JoJo made sure everyone was comfortable and taken care of. They were a lot of fun and explained our excursions in detail. Maya beach was absolutely beautiful, swimming with the plankton was a magical experience and feeding the monkeys on the island was an unexpected treat! I would recommend this trip and this staff to anyone who enjoys a taste of adventure and has an appreciation of natural beauty! Loved it!

    The sleep aboard trip to Maya Beach was easily the coolest thing we did in Thailand. The itinerary is perfect to experience Maya Bay like no one else is able to. The staff is so great- the food is amazing and the late night singing and comradery made the night very special. I would whole-heartedly recommend this trip.

    It was very nice to see Maya Bay without crowds. Stuff was very funny, helpful and nice!!! We had a lot of waves so sleeping was not easy and be aware that when you come from Ao Nang the ferry will be in Koh Phi Phi at 3 – so we missed the Boat at first but the stuff at the office helped us to get a logtail boat to follow.

    This over night sleep aboard trip to Maya Bay absolutely made our trip. It was a once in a lifetime experience. The staff onboard the boat were fantastic, the group we stayed with were all so friendly. Having Maya Bay to ourselves in the evening was so special bit the most AMAZING part of this trip was the night time swim with plankton. I will remember this for the rest of life!

    Awesome Trip”

    My friend and I had a great time on this trip. Lots of fun, felt safe, and was entertained the entire time! The only downfall I have is that they tell you that your stuff is secure in a locked room. That is false. Your stuff stays out in the open in their office, and the door is closed and locked at night. However, I walked by one night, and saw that door closed, with at least 5 pairs of flip flops outside, which means there were people inside. If you do this trip, which I highly recommend you do, please lock your belongings. I believe I had my external hard drive stolen out of my bag. While that is my mistake for NOT locking my bag, it is still wicked sketchy that it was gone when I returned. Bring LOTS of locks to lock your stuff, or bring all of your belongings with you.

    Well.. This was my second time booking for maya bay sleep aboard, the thing i will suggest you is to never go in low season, meaning from may to october. This time was super hot humid and low tide, which takes all the beauty. My first time going was in january and it was the best experience ever!! Clear sky, cool weather at night and a beautiful sea.
