I, along with 5 friends, have just had the great pleasure of spending 11 nights at Banana Fan Sea Resort. We booked solely based on what we sought (beach location and dining, quiet and accessible to everything) along with the comments made on trip advisor. Whatever we expected it was 10 times better! The resort is located in the quieter... More

We have just returned from an eleven night stay and this resort simply got better every day! We felt like we were leaving family when we left as the staff are so friendly. The rooms are clean and made up every day with the only minor downside being that our fridge wasn't very cold. Our friends said their's worked well.... More

We have just returned from our third stay at Banana Fan Sea Resort. This time we stayed for 20 nights in May 2015. The resort just gets better and better each year and you arrive as a guest but leave as one of there family. The resort is located on the best part of Chaweng Beach and the beach in... More

The staff here at Banana Fan Resort are truly friendly, and helpful too. I like the location of the resort because it is on the main avenue of the island. The garden setting is pleasant; the always blossoming frangipani trees yield a nice fragrance to the air day or night. My one concern is that the room, for two persons,... More

My wife and our extended family spent 8 nights at BF in early May. We had a wonderful time and the positive comments previously made about this property are accurate. We stayed in the beachfront two bedroom with pool, which I believe is there most expensive room. The location is superb with an unobstructed view of the water; you are... More

I have to fully agree with all the positive reviews of the BFC posted on Trip Advisor. My wife and I have had multiple stays along Cheweng Beach over the years and have finally found the ideal resort. We are in the middle of our 23 night holiday and are loving it, the comfortable clean rooms, the spotless linen, the... More

You can't beat the location. Close enough to walk into the center of town for a nice meal. Far enough that you won't be annoyed by the thumping bass of tired house music. We stayed in august in one of the bungalows. The room was just ok. The bathroom could have used some renovation. The hotel attracts some families as... More

On our Thailand escapades, we stayed in hotels in Bangkok, Koh Samui, Krabi, Phi Phi and Phuket. Banana Fan sea was hands down the absolute best resort in the whole 2 weeks we were in Thailand. This is how much the staff are willing to go an extra mile: 1) We were picked up at the airport by a cheerful... More
