If you have booked a chalet through a travel agent, then don't worry, someone will bring you there. But we went on motorcycle and got lost a few times. Not funny when it's raining at 8pm. But arriving there is a reward not even Hollywood stars receive! The chalet is simple and the bathroom is basic. No air conditioning, but... More

We stayed at Phanom Bencha for 2 nights. We read the great reviews on TripAdvisor, decided to email the resort and received a fast response from Son (the owner). He arranged and personally picked us up from the ferry port and we were taken straight to the resort. Arriving at the hotel you get a real sense of 'off the... More

We were so glad we chose to stay at PBMR and had the opportunity to meet the wonderful Son, Joop and family. Our hut at the foot of the hill was very basic as expected, clean and comfortable and we shared the shower room with several snails and geckos. The cultivated part of the garden is beautiful and testament to... More

Me and my family stayed here for 7 nights. We loved this place. Son (owner) and his family where awesome. They let us feel completely at home! Mama (Son's wife) cooked delicious!! It was the perfect ending of our trip in Thailand. The resort itself looked beautiful. Perfect place to chill&relax. Swimmingpool up on the hill is beautiful. It has... More

Krabi town is a good place for a quick stop over if you are travelling to the islands, unless you go here. it is a beautiful retreat off the beaten path. Barbra and Jules help run the place and they are amazing and wonderful people. We where in Asia for 3 months and I must say they made our trip... More

I found this hotel via tripadvisor and after a couple of exchanges of e-mail we were all set. Mr Son arranged for our family of 5 to be picked up from Krabi airport at teatime and taken to the hillside resort. The place is beautiful, it's just like the photos and looks like a film set. The wooden hut we... More

This is an amazing resort.. Highly recommend for wildlife and nature lovers. Not for party goers or anyone chasing nightlife. They have beautiful bungalows in the middle of the national park and it really gives you the feeling of how Thais live but with your own bungalow comfy bed and mosquito net with hot running shower. The food is the... More

We travelled as a family of four with two kids under six and really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were lovely. There was no hassle, they were very willing to talk through options and arranged everything efficiently once we'd decided in our own time. The menu was varied enough to suit the whole family, from grilled ham and cheese to... More

As a family of four with two kids under 5 this mountain resort was a bit too basic. But as adult travellers on a tight budget it is great value in a beautiful location. The double bedroom hut we had was simple and clean, unfortunately no shelves to store clothes, only a few hangers. The bathroom was standard asian, a... More

We loved our stay here and the owner Son is fabulous. Due to a wifi problem whilst we were there we had to shorten our stay as I needed to do job interviews by Skype. He let us choose how long we stayed for and didn't charge us - most properties in Thailand were not that generous! The place itself... More
