We stayed at the Baan Habeebee Resort in March 2012. The complex is small with only six bungalows and a swimming pool, as well as a breakfast/ seating area. The rooms are made from a dark wood in a Balenese style and were very clean and comfortable with a very large double bed. The only criticism we have is that there was not enough storage space for your belongings. Due to a booking error we stayed in two types of bungalow and my advice is that the bigger two are well worth the extra expense as the bathroom area is much bigger. Go for the room named Ruen Parachat if available as it is definitely better placed within the well kept lovely gardens.
The swimming pool is a good size for the number of residents and is cleaned regularly. There were probably not enough sun beds, but on our last day two more were brought in for guests, so hopefully that problem will be resolved.
The staff were really helpful, particularly Tammy, who always seemed to be there. The rooms were cleaned thoroughly and staff would wait to clean at a time that suited us, ie when we went to lunch. Having also stayed in Bangkok for a few days, the comparison between personal service at this hotel and a major one in the city was massive. Give me Baan Habeebee any day!
One other point to note is that there is no bar or alcohol sold on site. This is because the local population consists of predominantly Thai muslims. Not a problem, there is a 7/11 store within 100 yrds and the staff have no problem with you bringing your own onto the resort. There are about four local restaurants where lunch for two with a soft drink can be had for about £4!. Again, these are run by Thai muslims and are alcohol free. They are basic, but the food is cooked fresh and tasted great.
The resort itself is set about 1.5 miles outside Ao Nang town where there is an abundance of restaurants, bars, clubs etc, and although there are few facilities on site, the staff lay on a free transfer service four times throughout the day and will provide additional transfers at a small cost if required at other times. A word of warning if you visit Railay Beach, which is also nearby, and fancy doing a bit of rock climbing. One of the guys assisting with safety equipment at one of the climbing locations left his syringe concealed in a toilet cubicle and retrieved it when i was there. Having done that, he promptly went out to finish off a joint with another person who also appeared to be working there.
Overall, we loved staying at Baan Habeebee because it is almost like being in your own Oasis. Most days we had the pool to ourselves and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquility before heading into town of an evening.
