    Not the best place to stay in the area


    it looks nice on their website and it could be nice, but it isn't a place I'd recommend because of two main things. Firstly they don't clean the rooms very well and secondly their restaurant is grubby with flies over everything. They do a breakfast buffet and instead of covering up the food, it is all just sitting there, crawling with flies. Everyone except me developed an upset stomach.

    I wouldn't stay there again. It is cheaper than most of the resorts on Railay (which is why we stayed there) but we should have just paid more and stayed in a nicer place. You live and learn eh?

    Shame really as it could be a great little resort on an interesting and lively beach.

    Tonsai's best climbing accomodation


    Tonsai Bay Resort have the newest bungalows on Tonsai Bay - and the best location (except for maybe the new bungalows 150 meters inland). It is situated just next to the climbing wall on the eastern side of Tonsai Bay. With this in mind, the price is also higher than the other "no-fan-no-electricity" bungalows around. Prices start from around 1400 in high season - including American Breakfast at the beachside restaurant.

    Unique Quality: Fan rooms, aircon rooms. Restaurant, laundry, bar.

    Directions: The beach between Ao Nang and West Railay. Go by long tail boat at high tide (60 Baht from Ao Nang, 40 Baht from Railay), or walk along the shore from Railay West at low tide.

Snorkelling Trip

by Loops

We booked a 4 island day trip with Green Planet tours who are based in Ao Nang but they pick up from Tonsai Beach and Railay Beach too. We had a brilliant day. The guys who ran the boat and the trip were great - very good hosts.

Everywhere we went they'd explain where we were going, the name of the place, what there was to see etc. When we got to the snorkelling sites, a few of them came into the water and swam with us all, pointing out the various things to see (clown fish, different coral etc).

It was a fun day out with a good lunch and water provided and they were constantly giving out water so nobody would get dehydrated.

Life jackets were provided for anyone who wanted them (including children's life jackets for the little ones). Snorkels and masks also provided.

I felt like we were really looked after by them and the trip only cost 650 bht per person (for the larger boat, the smaller one, which took a slightly different route, was cheaper) so it was good value too.

Tonsai Beach

by globetrotter06

"Relaxation pure"

Tonsai Beach may not be the best place for swimming, especially not a low tide, but you have to search for a long time before you find a more relaxed place than this. Maybe comparable to Koh Phi Phi many years ago. There are no big hotels and no cars. In the evening you have the choice of the beach bars and restaurant on the beach or the small restaurant strip in the forest. At day time you can have a massage (from 200 Baht an hour), relax at the beach side, rent a kayak or go climbing, the last of which most of the people here do.

Be prepared, however, that this is not where you go if you want a hotel with a swimming pool...
