The bungalow we had consisted of one rather large room and a bathroom. While everything was operational and clean, signs of tear and wear were clearly visible. The bathroom could use a fresh paint and new silicone sealing. I’d also replace the toilet seat. When entering the room there was a bit of “old room smell”. The couple running the... More

Initially I wanted to give this place three stars, but I decided to give it one extra star, just because of the awesome people who run the place. First the good things: - Beautiful setting with lush garden and nice swimming pool, with lounge chairs - Spacious bungalows, king size bed, good working airconditioning - The free scooter that came...

Great little place, only 6 bungalows and very peacefull. The hosts were great, very welcoming, and the rooms were nice and clean and big. We really liked the scooter idea, it gives you lots of freedom , and can travel from beach to beach, or even into Krabi or the tiger cave temple. You might have to get used to... More

This little haven is best for rest and peace and quiet!!!! ,after the hubub of Krabi or Ao Nang. Because of Sao and Gee you feel as if you are staying with friends as opposed to in an impersonal hotel. Nothing is too much trouble here, your wishes will be granted with a huge smile, even down to getting your... More

My wife & two teenage children stayed here for ten wonderful nights over christmas. Groovy is a ten minutes from the beach & restaurants of Ao Nang. Getting back at night, just jump in a Tuk Tuk 50Thb each. Mr São will drive you into town anytime you wish. This place is family run and a little treasure. Gee and... More

Groovy Bungalows is a very nice place to stay. It is calm, clean and the owners (Gee and Sao) are FANTASTIC!!! It is not next to the beach, but you can get there so easyly in 5-10 minutes. (By tuktuk, bus, taxi or free scooter). They deserve a 10/10, because of their kindness, generousity and helpfullness. You will feel like... More

We had a one month stay in Thailand starting in May and groovy was our first stay and without a doubt this was our favourite place we stayed. The rooms were clean and spacious and surrounded a lovely pool. Sao and Gee were very friendly and helpful and they made our stay extra special. Sao even drove us to get... More

Set amidst a palm grove, the 6 individual bungalows surround a swimming pool. It is quiet and peaceful. A local Thai family live there & cook for you plus take you to some local places if needed although tut-tuts are available. They are a wonderful warm family who helped us with our 1 year old. We booked 2 bungalows with... More

We spent one week here with our two young children. The owners, Gee and Sao, are very friendly and kind people who made everything comfortable for us. Be aware that this is not close to the beach or town - it is a place for those who don't mind (or prefer) to be away from the hustle and bustle of... More

Groovy Bungalows are a (fairly) new set of bungalows and are in pristine condition. The taxi driver had to phone ahead to get directions but once he had them he found it easily. Beds are comfortable, the rooms are spotless and all are pool facing. The hosts are brilliant, really informative and couldn't do enough for you! They booked our... More
