      Spent my birthday here which was definitely a nice end of the year! The resort is well situated and you can rent kayaks to explore the mangrove swamp nearby, really gorgeous sunsets from this vantage point and the proprietor is quite lovely! It was definitely a great option if you are looking for somewhere low-key and offgrid! Amazing spacious bungalows and lovely balcony space! Highly recommend!

      Wonderful location on buffalo beach! Central to all other beaches. Very clean modern bungalows. WiFi was so so in the room, but worked quite well by the beach. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Beach is beautiful and even saw the bioluminescent plankton in the water at night! We extended our stay because we were enjoying so much. Did not eat at the restaurant so cannot speak to that. Will have to come back next time and try!

      The location was great, amazing beach (but the tide went down so low we weren’t able to swim in the afternoon). The bed wasn’t too comfortable and there were no bedside tables. The room service wasn’t consistent, some days we were not provided water. On one of the days, we saw a dead rat outside our bungalow so we told the manager but no action was taken, as we were staying a total of 5 nights, had to remove the dead rat ourselves.

      The esthetic style, very clean, at the best beach of the island

      I stayed 1 week at Buffalo Bay Vacation Club. It is one of the best Resorts of the Island... If not The Best! The private beach is very calm and so nice for swimming and with lot's of small fishes arround. You can swimm there only at high tide but I did not have any problems with it. All bungalows take place in a very nice garden with lot's of nice singing birds and it's only 1 minute to the private beach. Also the restaurant offers a great choise of very delicious food... By the way made my the boss him self. The stuff is always very helpfull and not defiant at all! Some people wrote about lot's of mosquitos.... But this depends for sure the weather... We did not have lot's of them and as there are mosquitonets at all windows and doors it's very easy going. I would always recoment this Island and this resort and if I come back to Thailand for sure I will go there again. They offer also trips for snorkeling or diving but I didi not use this service. If you don't like to rent a bike you can walk easily to next supermarket or some nice small restaurants. Very recomented is the restaurant and cocktail bar Krug Khun Kao... Leaving the resort and going up in direction center, at the first cross to the right... 20 min walking distance only. Buffalo Bay Vacation Club is the best place for relax! Walking at the beach during low tide you are in 10 min at a nice Rasta Bar. You will see the Bob Marley flag! Also very nice people!

      Friendly staff, delicious food and beachfront location

      I stayed for 3 days at Buffalo Bay Vacation Club and was most impressed by the surroundings and staff. The restaurant offers an extensive menu with delicious and affordable options. The bungalows are well-equipped and spacious. The staff are very attentive and helpful and keep the rooms and surroundings in impeccable condition. The beach is very quiet and a great place for rest and relaxation compared to other beaches on Koh Phayam. Despite this, it is only 5 minutes from the ferry. This resort is particularly suitable for couples or families. I have no hesitation in recommending the resort to others.

      Koh Phayam is a beautiful island. Buffalo Bay Beach is more quiet than Long Beach. BBVC It is a great resort to relax. The rooms have a very good standard and you get a good value for the money. Make sure you have your ferry or speedboat to the island organized.

      Very nice stay at Buffalo Bay Vacation Club!”

      Location, food and welcoming staff

      Dimitri has been a fantastic host and very patiently assisted my family of 5 with three young kids with any request. Communications before and upon arrival were smooth and he even cooked a birthday cake for one of us. The food was great (a bit expensive but everything need to be carried on the island so not surprising) and the family room was very big with two bunk bed and a very comfy king size bed. The beach was fantastic and even at low tide we enjoyed resting in the shade or walking on the beach spotting crabs and other creatures. We rented Dimitri's kayaks twice, once to adventure in the river nearby among mangroves and another time on the opposite side of the large bay for snorkeling. I was initially worried about the bad reviews on this resort but I must say that I was amazed by Dimitri's kindness and the beauty of his place. We loved Kho Phayam and if we are ever going back we would definitely book at Dimitri's place. Thanks a lot!

      We are a couple staying here for a week on November. We really appreciate all good service mind from staffs. They're very welcome and friendly. Moreover, the resort just connects to the beach (Buffalo Bay). We felt like we had our personal beach so near! One thing I would like to complaint about is the cleanliness of bed sheet in my 1st day. I think it's because of long time no usage room due to the low season. And another thing is food at the resort is so expensive,so I suggest you to eat other restaurants around the island.
