Awesome stay! We had twin bungalows linked by a shared bathroom. Our son enjoyed a family of tokay geckos in the rafters of his bungalow - really cool! As others have written, the food was fantastic at Phanom Bencha! Family run, there's a great, relaxed vibe that makes you want to eat slowly and hang out at the restaurant. There's... More

What an amazing place. Set far in the jungle next to a national park, you are a long way from the beach crowds, but up close to nature, with karst limestone cliffs in front of your bungalow, and beautiful landscaped gardens around. Ideal for walks around. Great friendly staff and wonderful, inexpensive food in the restaurant. Would stay here again.... More

what a lovely place to stay. This is definitely the place to come if you enjoy nature up close and personal. The (semi) natural pool area is bliss - beautiful and great fun for the kids to play in and jump off the rocks. As other reviewers have said Son and his wife Choop Choop are lovely, very kind and...

This place is beautiful, the owners (Son & Chup Chup) are friendly, funny, helpful and hospitable. They helped us arrange day tours, motor bike rentals and rides back and fort to the city. They really made us feel as part of the family. The food is the most delicious Thai food I have ever tasted! The place is far in... More

I came over Christmas with my sister and my parents. Absolutely beautiful scenery, and for sure a different thing to do from your standard beach locales in Krabi. Bungalow had a lovely balcony with stunning views, very clean inside. Fresh water pool was great. The whole resort is on a steep hill, so if you are travelling with older relatives... More

Jewel tucked in the rainforest of Krabi. I have hardly heard anyone visiting the highlands of krabi. Krabi always meant beaches, white sand and water sports.we got to know of this place again from trip advisor. The reviews were amazing and we decided to spend the new year there, away from the crowded beaches and believe me we were extremely... More

The owners are a fabulous couple who are dedicated to creating awesome experience for their guests. The location is a bit out of town, but Son arranged pickup at the ferry pier for us, so transportation was no problem. He also arranged transportation for our trip to the Tiger Cave. The food was amazing! Loved the home cooking, fresh Thai... More

Phanom Bencha Mountain Retreat We had a really nice 4 night stay here in November. There are several wooden bungalows ranging from 1 bedroom to family size scattered amongst beautiful gardens surrounded by spectacular limestone cliffs and dense jungle. We stayed in a 2 person bungalow for 1 night then opted for a larger 2 bedroom bungalow for the next... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Phanom Bencha mountain resort for a few days. I have to say the people we met there who run the place are some of the most genuine and nice people I have ever met.
