Room are big and spacious..Conveniently located..Walking distance to shop..Prevoously owned by muslim by the owner has changed so unsure whether its still halal resort though.. Good for families and kids as the swimming pool is big n clean P.S. Please do get rooms near the pool as its nicer.

We stayed here for one night while visiting Krabi. The hotel itself is located away from the hustle bustle of the main area despite being in the middle of it. Lovely gardens, natural pools mark the property, and the walk leading to our room was pretty. The rooms were huge, comfy and clean. Our group of 4 stayed in one... More

I visited this hotel in the 1st week of March for my honeymoon. It was an extremely average experience. We understand that considering the jungle theme there would be a lot of mosquitoes but the staff out rightly refused to give us any repellent. There was minimal service, for example, the soiled plates of the food we ordered in our... More

Positives: We stayed with our toddler and opted for the family room so she had a separate place to sleep. The room layouts and large spaces in each room were great meaning she had plenty of space to play and run around. The gardens, restaurant and pool area were really luscious and rustic. The pool was clean and large enough... More

First impressions of this place were all good. The gardens are spectacular! we saw monkeys and squirrels while eating our breakfast. There were some big lizards that lived in and around the central pond. Great for the kids to experience. Beautiful swimming pool. the surrounds were second to none that I've seen! The rooms were big and spacious. One negative... More

Lovely setting in a tropical garden with beautiful wild life we saw a monkey and squirrels while eating our breakfast. The garden was well groomed and clean. Pool was great, looked new. Breakfast was ok but not many choices, we enjoyed the omelettes. Rooms were large but the bathroom was a bit dirty. There was only one English station on... More

The advantage is location wise very good. Close to the beach and close to heaps of restaurants at the main road. Lovely garden, peaceful and nice pool. The disadvantage is service, No toilet accessories replaced. rooms need to be upgrade is too old furniture...Can understand the hotel is under construction.

It's the third time we stayed in Somkiet Buri. Probably sadly the last time. Its just such a shame as the garden and the pool are so beautiful and the price is very reasonable. The hotel is located very good as well. Close to the beach and close to heaps of restaurants at the main road. The reason that I... More

The Somkiet Buri has a lovely garden and nice spacey rooms. Unfortunately there are a couple of points which aren't so good and which are quite important for me. The ladies at the reception are not helpful at all and hardly ever smile. We had a pickup at 1 pm and asked if we could check out a little bit... More

Firstly the positives. Lovely grounds, peaceful and nice pool rooms and nice pool and good location. Now the negatives. Unfortunately the staff look they do not want to be there. No smiles or hello. The cleaning staff are the worst. We had 5 cleaners come in to do our room. They made the bed and that was it. No tea,... More
