...but the bungalows need a good scrubbing and a fresh coat of paint. The tropical weather has not been kind. See photos. I considered rating this place just plain old good on account of the bungalow. But the staff are very good, the setting is very peaceful (no hassles) and the beach is immaculate. They picked me up at the...

Spent a week there in room 1 with family. We loved fact this felt so immersed in nature. Room had fabulous view on beach, pool was great and surrounded by trees and loud birds, beach was super quiet and lovely, restaurant was good ( although I focused on cocktails rather than actual food). We really loved it there. A couple...

Nice chilled out resort with great beach - we had a sea view bungalow which was very lovely - no a/c but the tree canopy kept it reasonably cool - only complaint would be menu choice was quite limited but food good

We stayed in the resort for a week. The Bungalows need to refreshed you can see it that they are bit old and we didn’t stay in the cheapest version. First of all, our Bungalow bit smelled like piss, I think that it is because the sewers system is old, because our room was clean and all. The second thing...

We rent a car to get out from Ao Nang for short trip around and this place was great choice to chill down. Nice and basically empty beach makes this attractive option for crawled places. Food was good, recommend barracuda starter;)

If anyone is concerned about the negative reviews, please do take the time to read them carefully, and to consider the owner's response. To me, most of the complainers sound rather spoiled, and while I did not meet the owner, he seems to do an excellent job of acknowledging the customer's concern without compromising his integrity and standing up for...

Decided to take a chance and booked on the area knowing it was possibly jungle based!! Initially when we arrived the entrance, down a steep track, didn't look very appealing, then I saw the bamboo bungalows perched in the jungle, no aircon just a fan, mozzie nets and not much else, I swear we almost ran for the hills!!! BUT...

After spending a few days in Singapore, I flew to Phuket. Driving across the island I felt dispirited - built up, a little seedy and the Thailand I am growing to reject. I hopped on a ferry to Ko Lanta having booked RELAX BAY before I left. They arranged a pickup from the ferry, which was awesome and free. And...

We stayed here with our family of 4 (2 children aged 3 and 5 months) It was our second visit to the hotel and we enjoyed it a lot. As usual friendly staff who were very good with the kids. The room was ok. We had a room without aircon. Not a good idea with small children. The breakfast was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relax bay is not your average hotel. If you look for a traditional hotel with AC, concrete walls and all amenities you can find in any deluxe hotel anywhere in the world. Well, we are not the place to be. Our rooms are Huts, spaced between 5 and 10 m from each other and set in a as Jungle-ish possible setting. There is almost no concrete and we constructed our bungalows under the trees. This means they are in the shade. Furthermore the grass-type roofs are overhanging and give protection against the sun and around the bungalows we planted flowers and plants to block out the sun. Shade means coolness but also darkness. Bamboo, a living natural product also soaks up the moisture in the air. We air the rooms, but they always smell a bit Bamboo-ish. They do not smell damp and not well kept, they smell natural.Our roofs are made from grass, so they disintegrate after a time. They are not as waterproof as concrete, or tar roofs. However they are much cooler. and they look much better. Prices on the net should be the same everywhere , but you are best served by making a direct reservation at the hotel. ... more   less
