Good Place to start to visit the island. Cheaper (circa 30€/room) and very beautiful. Cleaned and large rooms. Breakfast excellent. The restaurant is very good also. Cocktails fantastic. Very beautiful Sunset. There is a small swimming pool but nice. The only negative thing is the beach in front of the hotel, it is small and it's difficult to swim because...

Thank you for your very generous review.The sunsets are trully special from the resort especially with a lovely refreshing cocktail so yes you are right they are not to be missed.The sea tide is unfortunately out at this time of the year so the water is shallow but glad that you explored other parts of the island with better beaches...

We stayed 5 nights for new year, and loved our time there. The staff are incredibly attentive and accommodating. Particularly recommend the traditional Thai massages in the beautiful ambient jungle setting.. Just watch out for the snakes.. Joke! I'd highly recommended the milky bay to anyone staying in koh phangan.

Arrived at the hotel at 2.00pm tired after a long trip to check in and found our room was not ready. Unpacked in the not so impressive room and chilled out at the bar for a snack and fruit shake. Paid for what we thought was the total bill and went back to our room.I left my wife to relax...

It is unfortunate that sometimes you do have to do some maintenance.All our guests were notified before booking and it was posted on all our websites about the 10 day pool renovation.The staff offered a free transfer to and from to our sister resort to use the pool which is only about a 5 min drive as we know that...

Stayed here for 5 nights over the full-moon party. It's a great resort which offers amazing service at an affordable price. It's located away from the main party beach but they arrange transfers to the full-moon party and taxis are cheap. The food is fantasic but the beach isn't great so we spent most the time around the pool.

My sister and I had an amazing time at Milky Bay. The staff were out of this world, and went above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasant stay, especially May and Mai. Full Moon Party transfers organised, various excursions on offer, peaceful surroundings, beautiful beach, spotlessly clean rooms. Would totally recommend!

We stayed at Milky Bay for 6 nights and absolutely loved it. The location is fantastic...just 10 mins in a taxi from Thong Sala (free transfer) and in a beautiful secluded bay. Swimming in the sea isn't ideal - very shallow - but the view of Koh Samui is stunning..and they have a pool (which was being renovated when we...

We stayed at Milky Bay in early February 2013 and the service was the friendliest I can recall (especially Win and Yu).
