This is a special hotel in the middle of the Chaweng Beach area. The town itself is very busy with narrow streets and lots of cars and motor bikes, and lots and lots of tourist stalls.

We stayed at Banana Fan from the 20th Dec to 3rd of Jan, and I can honestly say it was one of the most pleasant experiences we had with hotels.

For your dream accommodation, you... More

Stayed from 9th to 17th January 2015. I cant emphasis how customer friendly this hotel was, from the front desk to King round the pool. Who treats all his clients like royalty - he even moved my husband's sunbed position down for him as he said he didnt look comfortable. The Manager was away when we stayed - but the... More
