We travelled to Bila by long-tail boat from Sunrise beach to enjoy lunch and snorkelling off their beach. It's a chilled place with laid-back but efficient, friendly staff and great music. It's quieter than other beaches and hopefully it will stay that way. If you stay on Sunset beach you can easily walk there if you don't mind a big... More

It's a little hard to get to this place, but I think that's part of the beauty. We stayed here for a couple of nights then headed over to sunrise beach to stay somewhere "fancy schmancy" for the other part of our stay. It was nice and all on sunrise beach, but we found ourselves coming back to Bila beach... More

How does one describe paradise? This intimate, rustic, artistic gem in one of the worlds most beautiful settings is as close as we've come to pure bliss. Confused bookings and less than regular housekeeping and plumbing is all forgotten within seconds when weighed up against the superb ambience, hospitality and multiple talents of Taum - owner, musician, artist and brilliant...

On arriving at Bila you notice how well it's blended into it's surroundings. Bamboo, foliage and a lovely wee beach and all lovingly built by Taum and his crew.

Our open-air bistro is just steps away from the sea and is an ideal spot to catch a spectacular sunset and to catch ‘the catch of the day’! our inventive yet causal menu changes according to the fishermen’s luck of the day and is a testament to Thai cuisine with fresh island ingredients. Bila’s spacious bungalows feature bamboo verandas-all with incredible views of the Andaman sea , airy outdoor bathrooms and a relaxed atmosphere to unwind on your island holiday. Each bungalow is just steps from the beach. ... more   less
