We went there at the end of high season / beginning of low season and as we liked it we decided to stay 6 days instead of the initial 3. We managed to get a good deal on the room rate as we were staying more than a couple of days but the initial price is probably a bit high....

Booked 4 nights before we arrived in Thailand based on strength of previous reviews. Basically, Relax Bay has an excellent beach location and a wonderfully secluded feeling upon arrival, but it just feels like it's missing that 'je ne sais quoi'. Ironically it is French owned & run. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant overlooks the beach with...

The main areas such as the bar are very basic but OK, the rooms however are damp, we had mould growing on the ceiling and walls, the bed linen and towels are stained and never ever looked clean, the bathroom was awful. We complained about the room and were very begrudgingly upgraded to what is suposed to be a VIP...

We wanted to do something special here, so booked the new Tent Experience. It was amazing. The views from the tent were awesome. The bathroom had a hot water shower and flush toilet. The tent was serviced daily, as it was part of the hotel. The food and drink here was expensive, but a short walk up the beach you...

This is my second time at Relax Bay. First time 2009. That stay was fantastic. The beach was quiet and nice and the restaurant was just great. The year much had happend on the beach. New resorts and restaurants which made the beach a little less "paradisic". The biggest dissapointment this year was the restaurant. Poor service and the food...

We stayed here on honeymoon, after finding the resort on the internet and reading the mixed reviews with an open mind. The resort is very well maintained, the staff do an excellent job keeping the place looking nice and tidy. We did not use the yoga facilites, but they looked to be in a beautiful setting. We stayed in a...

Great resort with lots of charm. We had a lovely bungalow surrounded by an amazing garden. It was so nice to see that the management are still planting flowers and trees where other places seem to be chopping them down. The restaurant is on it's own private beach and has orchids hanging form each post. The management were super 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
