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...

Very good value. The long wide beach is lovely; our hillside fan bungalow was comfortable, spacious and included a covered deck with hammock that was a perfect spot to get away from the afternoon heat. Friendly, very well managed staff. Pretty dining room overlooking the beach. Decent breakfast buffet and the a la carte menu for lunch and dinner offered...

Relax Bay is a nice place to stay, especially with kids. It is not overly crowded and is situated at a lovely secluded beach which is great for swimming and relaxing. There are nice beach salas (wooden huts) where you can hang out in the shade. Unfortunately there are only a few and despite the sign indicating they should not...

Relax bay is a very nice place, beach is beautiful, not crowded and children friendly. Restaurant is good though a tad expensive (but obviously a bit more more upscale than other places). Staff is OK (not complaints whatsoever) but not over friendly. I would have expected them to be a bit more caring. Bungalows are nice and well located in...

Stayed in Relax Bay for 2 nights in February 2017, and we had a great time there. We had a basic bungalow (no air conditioning) so I thought the price was a little high for the standard of the room itself. However the surroundings are amazing and you have everything there, you don't need to leave the resort: lovely and...

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
