Very nice stay for vacation and visiting Ao Nang simpel way. Good location near the beach where local peaple are having picnic. Many bars and restorans with good value are in 3 minute walk away. Also you have water, soft dinks, beer etc. 24h available at receptiondesk, aswell all other services when you ask the owner.

This is a really lovely home-from-home for those who like to escape from the crowds in Krabi into a beautiful secluded retreat in a natural setting. If you are someone who doesn't mind the sounds and experiences of sleeping in amongst the wildlife, a basic but functioning bathroom, and is looking for a relaxing place to stay with a warm... More

This place was perfect. It was so good I actually enjoyed staying in Ao Nang ( which I personally dislike after several trips to Krabi province). The bungalows are the normal bamboo variety with an attached bathroom which is very nice to have. Great location only 1 minute walking from the beach. What makes this place special though is the...

Great place to stay! If you would like to get to know more about Thailand, the typical bamboo house is one step, that bring you closer to this culture! It is simple furnished, but what do you need, when you stay in paradise? :)

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed the simple accommodation. Our hut was simple - had a bed with mossie net, a shelving unit and a separate bathroom with toilet and shower. Granted this place isn't for everyone but was fine for us. whilst we were there Nui had a shortage of water for a day which meant... More

I wish I could say anything nice, as the owner is a great guy, however he does not know how to run a business. He tried to run it all by himself, but it's obvious that it doesn't work. The whole place is run-down (nothing like the official photos from long time ago), it's full of trash. I was shocked... More

Friendship of awesome soulfull community. Welcoming and wise host Nui. Chilling atmosphere of simplicity and trust. Place is simple and minimalistic, but it is charming and amusing. It is real getaway of stressful world, to the area of soul, with a help of very nice collection of enlighting books here. It is some issues because of simplicity and the only... More
