    A lovely spot!”

    Pros: Set on a beautiful bay, food very good(according to the Thai's I was with). Staff very friendly and helpful. Totally relaxing! Cons: Beds a little too firm. Water not hot in the shower. Mosquitos can be pesky if there is no wind. For me, the pros defintely outweighed the cons. If you want to explore the island, you will need a motor scooter. Get one when you arrive at the pier. Very cheap. We paid 150 thb per day

    Great spot on the beach, hornbills, no beachfront accommodation though.”

    We were very happy with our stay here. Ao Kwai (Buffalo Bay) is a beautiful and relaxed beach. The staff were friendly and the service was good. BONUS: you can see lots of hornbills feeding in the morning! The only drawback is that this place has no beachfront rooms or bungalows, but there are lounge chairs at the beach and the restaurant has great views.

    Bed, room and staff

    I stayed here for one night. The hotel staff was very helpful for me. It has a very quiet, calm and beautiful beach which is a little isolated from other area and do not have a lot of people. When you stay that hotel, I think you had better rent a motorcycle at pier to go around island.

    Haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, konnten leider nicht verlängern”

    Wir waren ein paar Tage im Resort und konnten nicht verlängern, weil alles ausgebucht war. Die Zimmer im Haupthaus sind toll, auch wenn einmal eine Maus den Weg hinein gefunden hatte (über den Balkon). Jeden Abend toller Sonnenuntergang, nebenan sind Bars, alles was man braucht. Das Restaurant lädt zum Verweilen ein - die Hornbills werden dort gefüttert und man kann sie von ganz nah betrachten. Ein Moped zu haben empfiehlt sich. Wir würden wiederkommen, auch wenn uns 1200 Baht für Koh Phayam etwas teuer erscheinen, aber das liegt daran, dass wir das letzte Mal vor vielen Jahren hier waren, als es nur 1/3 der heutigen Unterkünfte gab. DIe Zeiten ändern sich eben.
