Two friends and I stay at Aruna and Chai's place during December 2014 - January 2015. Our room was spacious and comfortable for three people with a beautiful view of the ocean. Located about a 10 minute walk from the beach and many restaurants, we found the location to be great. Aruna is incredibly helpful if you need anything. They... More

My two friends and I shared a room at Baan Rao for about 6 days. I was so happy that I put in the effort to find Baan Rao online. Aruna and Chai take you in with big hearts and welcome you into their family for your stay, including dinners together, heart to hearts, and plenty of advice and warmth.... More

At Aruna's & Chai's place everything is just simply beautiful. On top of the hill next to the jungle you have a spacious room with a comfy bed, fan shower & a terrace with stunning view over the Andaman sea. Here you live in harmony with the nature & like your hosts try to leave the smallest footprint on this... More

We spent ten days at Baan Rao in December with our two young children and it was perfect for us. Aruna and Tchai also have two young boys, and our kids immediately felt at home there. We really liked sitting on the terrace with our hosts and other guests in the evenings - Aruna really encourages a sense of community,... More

Before you book your stay in Baan Rao, it's good to know that: *It is a HOMESTAY, not a guesthouse. This means that you make your breakfast yourself, clean after yourself, wash your towels if they get dirty etc. *The place is located in the hill, which means a lot of climbing, which is not so great in hot and...

We want to thank our Finnish guests for having written this review as this gives us the opportunity to explain what Baan Rao B&B is really about. Yes, they are right, this IS a Home Stay and not a regular hotel and we try as much as possible to remind guests about this when they book with us. What we... More

Baan Rao was a fantastic stay. Aruna & Chai go out of their way to make you feel welcome and ensure you know everything you need to know about the island. They will give you a house tour to make sure you know where everything is and so that you can bring your own food back etc and cook it... More

We were tired of the backpacker scene in Thailand and wanted to find something a little different, so we opted not to stay on the beach in Koh Lanta but to stay up the hill at Baan Rao Bed & Breakfast, and we are so glad we did. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel completely at... More

Aruna, Chai and their two lovely little boys make everyone feel welcome and part of the family. The facilities are very nice and peaceful with quiet when you want it but there is also plenty of opportunity to meet other interesting people. The beach is a short walk away and Aruna and Chai are super helpful making arrangements for whichever... More

5 mins from Phrae Ae beach, Aruna and Chai welcome you in their house as if you were part of the family. I had a wonderful stay there and shared lovely moments with the hosts and the other guests. The house and the guests rooms are very nice, the atmosphere is peaceful and quiet, you can relax in a hamoc... More

I have never spent a holiday feeling so comfortable in the chosen accommodation. Baan Rao is literally a home away from home. We stayed at Baan Rao over the Christmas holiday and were lucky enough to spend time with not only Aruna, Chai and their two kids Shaan and Jeevan, but also Aruna's sister and mother who were visiting. I... More
