We enjoyed a stay over New Years , the weather was awful but we still had a great time. I can imagine it is paradise when it's sunny. Cold showers and a nightmare to get to in the bad weather - can usually accessed by long boat but these were not working they whole time we were there. But they...

After looking this place up online, we were really excited for our stay, the beach looked beautiful. However no one on here seems to mention the struggle to get here. When we arrived off the ferry from krabi, we were told by taxi drivers we couldn't drive directly to the resort. Nightmare so we took a shared taxi to another...

Very quiet location outside peak season and Full Moon Parties. Lovely friendly staff. Great simple bungalows in jungle setting, many with sea views . If you organise it they will pick you up from Thong Sala for less than the taxis at the port. Its isolated which is great if you want peace and quiet. Not a party beach

Bottle beach is like designated paradise of outstanding beauty. We spent 4 nights on this beach, doing absolutely nothing. It's great getaway to rest your soul and mind. Smile bungalow restaurant offers variety of tasty food and drinks (Curry, Thai Tom Yum soups, etc and great friut shakes!!!).

I stayed here for a couple of weeks and really enjoyed it. The bungalows with hammock are inviting for a relaxed break and the nearby beach for a refreshing swim. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. The internet was surprisingly fast and the few outages didn't bother me much. Bottle Beach is a secluded beach only...

Travelled halfway around the world to spend a few days here. Bottle beach has a total of around 150 bungalows among 5 guesthouses scattered along the beach, and it's an oasis of tranquility. No jet-skis, no night-clubs, no cars or scooters, no hawkers - and in fact no hassles at all. and most travellers arrive here by longtail boat from...

Bottle Beach is one of my favorite getaways... It's remote location and not so convenient accessibility make you feel like you found your (almost) personal, private paradise. Smile Bungalows fits in just perfect. Don't expect AC in your hut, clean towels every day or some other luxury services you'd probably get elsewhere. Everything at Smile is 'basic'. And that was...

We selected the place becouse of fantastic landscape. The sandy beach is surrounded by a rain forrest and hills. There are good paths from the forrest. The beach offers nice swimming and acceptable snorkelling. The place can be accessed by a boat or by an offroad car. Smile bungallows are nice and a bit basic in a forrest around the...

The location of these bungalows, on bottle beach, was incredible and our room had a beautiful view. The restaurant was also very nice and the staff really friendly. However the quality of the accommodation was very poor. I had expected a basic room but was disappointed even with these expectations. One night of our stay we woke up with a...

The beach is perfect and quiet! The stuff very friendly and helpful! Amazing place to relax! For sure we come back! There is no 7/11 or ATM. We came here with a boat, can not come with motorcycle, so that's whynot too many people around.

“Ask NOT to be in a room at the top of the hill. We paid for the most expensive room (S11) but rooms lower down had a better view of the sea”

“Budget rooms are pretty much the same, just a little less space. Ours was budget and it was right near the beach and restaurant. Our friends paid a little more and they had a room a but further up the hill but it was on 2 levels.”
