When reading this please note that we visited at the start of low season so your experience could differ if you go at a different time of year. Firstly and most importantly, when making a decision on your accommodation you need to know that Arayaburi Resort and Bay View are the same property. When booking I had no idea. I avoided Bay View because of the reports of salt water in the rooms but the same was also true for Arayaburi Resort. However, I really would not be overly concerned. The water from the taps in the rooms is indeed ... salt water (albeit not 100% i think) but contrary to my concerns it proved trivial. Also contrary to reports, the in-room wifi was excellent.the best I've ever had in Thailand. The resort offers a complimentary water taxi service to and from Tonsai Pier and they also have a small mini van to help you and your luggage to your room. The resort, like many on Phi Phi, is built on hilly ground. It wasn't a major problem for us and resulted in stunning views from our room but if you are significantly overweight or have major health issues you may want to look elsewhere. The main beach is at the far end of Tonsai Bay. There are quite a lot of boats anchored there and the sand is very compact.still nice but not ideal. However, the resort does have another smaller beach to the south which is usually empty and free of boats. A short walk through the forest will take you to an absolutely wonderful little beach by Viking Resort and a few minutes further will take you to Long Beach. Overall I would highly recommend the resort and would definitely return. read hotel review

    Pool was nice but if you're going to Phi Phi what are you doing sitting by a pool??

    Bay View and Arayaburi Resort is perfectly situated in south Tonsai Bay away from the major tourist traffic. As some reports suggest, there is a fair bit of boat traffic throughout the day but it really wasn't a problem. At night time the resort is sufficiently away from Loh Dalum Bay where music booms all night long....we never had any problems with noise at night....in fact it was perfect! The main beach is at the far end of Tonsai Bay. There are quite a lot of boats anchored there and the sand is very compact...still nice but not ideal. However, the resort does have another smaller beach to the south which is usually empty and free of boats. A short walk through the forest will take you to an absolutely wonderful little beach by Viking Resort and a few minutes further will take you to Long Beach. The walk into town takes 5-20 depending on how far you want to go and how quickly you walk but I really wouldn't be concerned....it's a great location.

Marauding gang and geschredderte geckos archived

You could the hotel best with the words' many disadvantages-great beach ' describe. Zunänchst once must be said, that the two hotel's beaches really great and during the day a lot of time to spend can. Also the hotel is in a very good location, as the noise of the party island almost nothing easier. But i also many disadvantages noticed, which led, that the resort would not recommend. First of all, the many lizards here, the unfortunately not only on the balcony stop, but also gladly in the hotel again. Is the schwarzschimmelausspuckende air conditioning turned on, you have ... a really great night on klimaanlagenbettseite (as a side note: that was my!). The animals fall in regular suizidaler intention the complex, making a loud schreddergeräusch is produced. The marauding gang and the abnormal many mosquitoes do not lead to a relaxation stay. If you were unlucky (like us) you must then also still handgestoppte 8 minutes on foot until to the front desk on itself take. A small ray of hope but it was the breakfast, that i for thai standards as a relatively sound to good would call. read hotel review

we had a three- bedRoom- bungalow at the end of the area. The 4-star resort has really already better days. We were with the backpack in Thailand and in places with less alleged comfort experienced. The bungalow was just worn out. The mosquito nets had massive Holes. Towels and so on only stayed for two persons available. the breakfast was not very narhaft. The plates weren't cleared. Positive-the back the end of the resort is a small beach in front of the hotel. The hotel's beach bar was unfortunately closed. price-performance not true. read hotel review

We had booked as a family with three children had a double bungalow, (very cheap in the low season). Bungalows are set in a fantastic location on the hill, the trouble of rise anyway it is worthwhile. The bungalows are in good condition and you had a lot of space. Bathroom was great! The view of the balcony is indescribable. The complex is very well maintained and spacious, the pool is located on the hillside in the shady forest. The breakfast was very good and in a fantastic setting instead. The location at the end of clay said is ideal ..., quiet, and easy to walk at night in the place. The long beach through the forest ten minutes footpath. read hotel review

Great view, great area archived

The Arayaburi resort shares with the Bay view hotel is a front desk, which is a disadvantage, because if you arrive with the ferry and the hotel is shipped, then Thai tranquility is needed. It can last already, you two hour wait on room. The bungalow area was spread over the whole hillside and you have already times further paths. Very nice great location. The sea on this side were very flat, so you up to the hip in the water, even if you walk 200 meters, however, you'll have to make sure, that the taxi boats not overrun. read hotel review
