Check in was pleasant, refreshing drinks provided. Garden bungalow was at the back of the resort near reception. It had probably not been renovated. Room was tired and depressing. Bathroom although clean, lacked any extractor fan or window. It was extremely hot and unpleasant. Furniture was old and dated. Breakfast was okay. A cover over the salad would have stopped... More

We stayed in the beachfront room 328 & 329 recently with free wifi which is excellent. First about the rooms, they are not cheap. Hence, I have expected a high level of upkeeping of the place. The toilet of room 328 was not working occasionally but luckily, there are 3 toilets. The rainforest shower in room 328 has got water... More

We spent 14 nights at the Banana Fan Sea Resort in a nice deluxe bungalow (room 210), quietly located in the garden between the reception area and the beach, so we heard the waves roling! The staff was utterly friendly, especially Rung, our room attendant, she surprised us with animals, made from towels! The beautiful elefant or the rabbit were... More

We stayed 4 nights in Banana. The beach room is very nice with excellent sea view. The resort is of great location, quiet and convenient. You can have the beach and the Chaweng Street at the same time. The food is good, the service is good. The reception kindly called us to remind our leaving flight. But really a little... More

We spent 10 wonderful, utterly relaxing days at the resort. At first, we were actually a bit disappointed because the deluxe bungalow did not live up to our expectations. Luckily the next day we could upgrade to a sea view villa (room 327), which was perfect. The interior of the villa is very nice and it wouldn't take that much... More

I wish we had stayed here because the beach bungalos looked awesome. We just came for the day and had lunch and cocktails. The lunch was okay but the drinks were great. Order their specialty drinks. They have free wifi and the most perfect view.
