We booked the room ahead and had to secure it with a credit card even it was green season (it was the only place we had to do this). When we arrived we were told our room was given to somebody who just turned up! Not the best start. The welcome drink was lovely and the people very friendly. The... More

What a find! Clean bungalows, private bathrooms. Wonderful restaurant area to enjoy the six dish sample menu which is offered daily. Best thing is that Time for lime is right on the beach and the staff are so friendly. We really felt at home. It also has some very sweet cats to play with. We liked naughty Sophie and the... More

Stayed here based on tripadvisor reviews. It was definitely a bargain - for better or for worse. The toilets did not flush but the rooms are generally clean and well prepared. The Mojitos are certainly the best on the island and the cooking class was phenomenal (even though it was not taught by the famed Junie). You better actually love... More

Dear guest, Thank you for staying in our bungalows at Time for Lime! Our bungalows have a “Thai style” bucket flush, which saves 80% water by doing so. This is very important on an Island that depends on ground water. We have a fun illustration how to use these toilets on our web site, under the menu “bungalows” and in... More

This boutique resort is situated on the longest and most popular beach in Krabi. It is tranquil and relaxing. A fantastic location close to the market place and many restaurants outside. The staffs in the resort are warm, friendly and helpful. The only thing about them is they are not really good at recommending stuff to do outside the resort.... More

I have travelled around Thailand for 5 months and Time for Lime was the only place that was too good to leave. We (me and my spouse) ended up staying for two weeks in a fan bungalow instead of one week. In April it gets hot, so for most people I recommend taking an air con bungalow during the hotter... More

I wholeheartedly agree with bexiow's review from January 2014. I was initially attracted to the Time for Lime bungalows because of the great work they do for animals on the island in need, and we were also signed up for Time for Lime's cooking class (which we totally loved).
