Relax Bay is made up of decent little individual huts which is cute, but the walls are thin, so you can hear the bar up the beach pumping beats when you are trying to get to sleep. The staff are average - not overly helpful or friendly. The food at the restaurant is not very good and much of it...

I stayed at relax bay in November, mainly for the yoga. The resort itself is set on a beautiful beach - it's absolutely gorgeous! Yoga with Mona was fantastic. She's absolutely lovely and manages to tailor the class to all levels which is great. The view from the deck is amazing too! The resort itself is lovely but you definitely...

The best start on a holiday we´ve ever had! Nice priced A/C bungalow with breakfast included. Excellent food with very professional, friendly and hospitable staff. Surroundings were beautiful and there were plenty of hammocks and other places to rest. One of two favourite places in Thailand!

I stayed in this Hotel a week or so back for a few nights. I travelled with my Partner and it was the final leg of my tour around Thailand. Overall the Hotel is alright, although I would say the price per night is rather higher than it should be. The location is ok, very quiet. I guess this is...

Later that evening I...

The bungalows are exactly as they...

If you want to relax and enjoy the beautiful island of Koh Lanta; Relax Bay is the place to be. The restaurant offers very good food en the place is very quiet and peaceful. The owner (Alain - a guy from Belgium) and the staff were very friendly.

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
