    Good

    The room was lovely, and if you like rock climbing, Tonsai beach is definitely the place to stay.

    We had a bit of a surprise when we returned to the room at about 3pm to discover that the power was shut off and would not be switched back on until 5pm. Thus... no air conditioning.

    Tonsai Bay Resort is quieter than it's neighbours on Railay Beach, with less tourist and long boat traffic. The food was exceptionally cheap and authentically delicious and there are several restuarants and bars to choose from, although most have the same reggae/rasta theme. The staff do not have great English but are helpful (contrary to other reviews) if treated with respect. The electricity does switch off from about 2pm - 5pm, but otherwise we were comfortable in our air conditioned bungalow; the beds were very comfortable and the linen clean and fresh.

    Accessible only by boat, Tonsai Bay is definitely backpacker friendly. I travelled with a medium suitcase weighing about 25 kilos, however getting it across beaches and onto boats etc was a bit of a mission. Going to/from the bay at high tide is best, otherwise it's a trek over rocks and mud. Also, the longer you stay at Ao Nang before getting the long boat back to Tonsai in the evening, the more you fork out for the journey. From 80 baht one way during the day, to 900 baht at 9pm in the evening (when there is less chance of forming the group of 8 the boatmen like to carry). There are two ATM machines at Railay Beach - accessible by foot at low tide from Tonsai (unless you're a rock climber and take the more challenging jungle path).

    Boat trips to the islands, and snorkeling

    Disappointed that the beach was so rocky. Had to walk round or get a longtail boat round to Railay

    Good

    Nice place and good breakfast Lloc maco i l'esmorzar està bé.

    There is no wifi, no towels to go to the beach, the location is not in Railey and is not easy to go and come to Railey because of the tides. You cant stay in Railey after 20:00 because later you are not able to go back to the hotel. We would recommend other cheaper bungalows in Tonsai. No hi ha wifi, no et donen tovallores per anar a la platja (a la resta d'hotels molt més barats sempre ens n'havien donat), no està situat ben bé a Railey i no és fàcil anar-hi per culpa de les marees. Per tornar a Krabi o tens sort de trobar més gent o has de pagar un taxi boat particular. Tonsai està molt bé per passar-hi la nit però té inconvenients respecte Railey perquè està pitjor comunicat (amb diners no hi ha problemes, és clar). Recomanariem qualsevol bungalow de 500 baths, que no aquest resort per 1000 baths que és el que vam pagar nosaltres.

    The hotel located on the beach! I find Tonsai more beautifull then nearest Railey. The stuff were helpfull.We came with big bags and they helped us with their motorcicle. Tasty food at restaurant.We stayed two more days....

    The beach is not sandy as railey and impossible to swim and relax. Railey is only 15 minutes walking or 5 minutes cayaking- if that what you ooking for

    Very good

    I liked the comfort of a nice resort and the atmosphere of Tonsai Beach, which is mainly a backpacker and rock climber beach. When the tide is low, you can walk to Railay beach.

    Tonsai Beach only accessible by longboat from Ao Nang. They normally wait untill there is a certain number of passengers. Otherwise you can book your own boat with the hotel, which is a bit more expensive.

    Superb

    I brought a Study Abroad group of students there over New Years and they loved it!! I loved the beauty of the location with the mountains and some loved the beach, mountain climbing, sea Booked.neting, beach massages, etc. Very layed back. If you are afraid of monkeys do not stay here as you have to walk past a group of monkeys on way back from dinner to your cottage. One tip is not to carry food as they will come after you. Also hard to come to this remote beach from Karabi with l large roll bags since you have to come in long tail boats. You have to wade in the water to get off the boat to get on the beach so have water shoes.

    Tonsai Bay Resort is quite close to the beach.

    Allthough the room was clean, it was very smelly, kind of mould- infested. I guess it was the mattress of the bed. Another couple left after staying one night, as we did! As we booked 6 nights and left earlier, we had to pay one night extra.

    The spectacular scenery and extraordinary topography made up for the poor service and lack of facilities. Awe inspiring Limestone Karsts protruding over restaurant, monkeys everywhere added to the atmosphere. The location was great however, Ton Sai Bay Resort manager grumpy and unhelpful.

    The beach is very disappointing and dirty not as shown in images were saw before we left. We felt this resort was more for the low budget adventure traveller and not normal people.

    Staff insisted we pay before seeing the room, then informed us that the electricity is cut between 9 am and 5pm. Also one day the cleaner must have left the doors open and monkeys came in and destroyed our bags and stole food in the room. Not a trip highlight.

    Very good

    Quiet and relaxed feel, removed from the crowds and noise! Breakfast included. Resort can help arrange transportation.

    I found it difficult to decide where to stay in this area of Thailand and it should be made clear that Tonsai Bay Resort is in Tonsai Bay, which is only accessible by boat from Ao Nang. If you are planning to stay here, know that you will need to take a long-tail boat to and from the resort in order to visit the popular beaches of Railey, and that there are limited services on this bay (small shops, no grocery store, lots of climbing shops and several restaurants). It is not appropriate for those with limited mobility to stay here due to the boat/beach arrival and the walking to the resort required.

    Good atmosphere. great setting

    Getting to the rest of the bay...hard to reach through rocks at low tide and hilly path at night with a torch!
