Found this place on the 1st rank in Tripadvisor..and the price per night is very budget-friendly.
Well knowing the huts are in the jungle, we expected lizards in the room, which we dont mind. For some it can be an issue - but we didnt know about the monkeys, the rats or the wild dogs on the Island. The hotel warns you about them, when you check in, which we thought was a funny feature. For some it might be an issue.
The huts are placed on a hill, so if you're inmobil or can't manage climbing stairs, this isn't the place for you.
To get there, we went from Koh Ngai to Lanta and from Lanta with a longtail we booked through the hotel, because we werent able to make it at time with the ferry.
When we left, we went with a longtail and got on the ferry to Krabi, in the middle of the sea, which worked out very well.
-Amazing location with a stunning view over the jungle and the sea.
-Only noice you will hear is the jungle and the animals.
-Food and drinks are very well made
-The staff is extremely friendly, they are laughing all day long and joking around with their guests. You'll only see BIG smiles from them.
The service they give to their customers is why they are on the 1st rank in Tripadvisor, i believe.
-Mr Boy's bar is the best place to watch the sunset from and Mr Boy is a loving, caring and funny guy who we spend some good times with.
-The beach (not the sea) is beautiful with powdery sand, many crabs and cozy sea-huts to relax in.
-When we needed a scooter with automatic gears, the hotel arranged it in 10 minutes (though they charged us 100 baht extra for the delivery...and didnt offer us to rent it for half a day, (which we found out other guests did) instead of 24 hours, so we could have saved some money when we just used it 5 hours)
-Holes in the mosquitonet, which caused two nights with different insects in the bed with us.
-The rooms could use a good makeover and forexample close the BIG gaps in the floor, so you cant see the bare ground underneath you...and so the insects cant get into your room + a really good cleaning and maybe some white painting inside, so you can see what kind of insects you're sharing the room with.
-No aircon...but a fan though.
-The sea is not good for anything else than to cool of on shallow waters. Many rocks and too unclear to see anything when snorkling.
-The hotel charges 80 baht per kilo laundry. 1,5 km from the hotel they charge 40 baht per kilo.
