Accommodation in the Phi Phi Islands! The most special trip of our lives, as it was our honeymoon. The islands are an earthly paradise and not unjustly so. Blue waters, white sand and tropical vegetation are some of the elements that compose the idyllic landscape. Full of enthusiasm we booked our airline tickets and the next step was the accommodation part. The islands are not large in size, however the options were many. We were looking for something impressive because of the exotic destination we had chosen, but at the same time for the cost to be within reasonable limits. Below in our short article, we will mention which accommodation combined the above two elements and why we distinguished it from the rest.

Bayview Resort was probably the best choice of accommodation we have ever made on our travels so far. It is located on the south coast of the island, on the quiet slope of a hill, above Laem Hin beach. The distance from the shops and restaurants of the island is only a 10-minutes-walk, away from the hustle and bustle of the center, but at the same time close to it.
For us, this route was a worthy morning walk after breakfast and the best shutdown of the day. As we were strolling by the local market of the island, we enjoyed the smells of the restaurant’s food, wandered through the stalls and lived the leisurely rhythms of locals and tourists.
The beautiful tropical landscape was something that won us over at first glance. This feature surrounds the bungalows offering us peace and tranquility in our accommodation. An experience we sought out for our journey. The pleasant route to our room combined a large bluff of trees’ shades, gardens and alleys between the rooms.
Combined with the tropical nature, the view of the Andaman Sea with its turquoise calm waters added the ultimate relaxed atmosphere to our vacation. From our balcony we also enjoyed the view of the imposing rock formations of Tonsai Bay.
Our room was spotless and bright due to its large windows. There was a daily cleaning of the room and the lovable staff left for us on the bed flowers and towels in various formations like mini elephants. The mattress was very comfortable and the air conditioning and wifi facilities left us satisfied. There was also a free transfer from Tonsai Harbor to the room and vice versa, upon arrival and departure on the longboat.
Leaving the catering services for last, we want to say that we were looking forward to the resort breakfast every single morning. The variety of buffet was the largest we have encountered in hotel breakfasts and it was all delicious. From fresh fruits, such as pineapple and watermelon, various types of bread, salads, traditional foods and freshly squeezed juices. Our plates were full every morning and we chose to sit on the balcony tables and enjoy our breakfast with the calm view of the island. Also one night we chose to dine in the restaurant The Bay of the hotel, at the tables that were on the soft sand of the beach, under the soft candlelight.
All of the above definitely contributed to a positive image regarding accommodation in the Phi Phi islands and we would choose the very same hotel again!
