“great retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

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.

We stayed at the Baan Habeebee Resort for two weeks. Staff was very friendly and helpful, many thanks to Tammy, Don and Mr. Tee. Our bungalows (Supannika and Fuengfa) were great. The bed was great and breakfast decent.

Resort was only 5-10 minutes away from Ao Nang by tuktuk for 50 baht per person. There were also 3 daily free shuttle/tuktuk rides to Ao Nang.

There was the possibility to get a massage in your own bungalow, we had it couple times and it was good.

Thank you for a memorable holiday!

Room Tip: We stayed in bungalows called Supannika and Fuengfa

This hotel was such a dissapointment! I read good reviews here, but it seems that nobody stayed in room Dahla. As you can seen at the pictures, the toilet is horrible - they have funguses in silicon all over the toilet. The shower and toilet seat are not separated, they don't have shower door or curtain to stop the water flooding the whole toilet. So, when you take a shower the whole toilet is wet! Dahla is first room they have built here, they saw the mistake and did correct it in other rooms - but the problem is that they are still selling this one as same quality and at the same price as others. The hotel staff is kind and polite until you have some problem, but when you complain, they just don't care. On our complaints regarding the toilet situation their reply was - we are aware of the situation, but it is as it is. It was very frustating trying to convince them that this is wrong. When I found a hair in my breakfast, they did not even apologize. They knew we are not satisfied and really did not put any effort in making us feel better. The reception after 4 pm until 8 am has receptionist who doesn't speak English. My sister stayed in Suppanika and their room was the same as on the pictures, they were really satisfied. I was not satisfied with the situation in our room, but the true shock was staff reaction - I have never experience something like this.

We have changed new management team, and we try to renovated all bungalows, and all services, we try to spent a lot of money to put new thing and more aminities

We have found that some pictures from customer who took photos that look nice and new such as new swimming pool, massage area, re painting of all bungalows, if you check the picture , will make you ensure, we already changed.

Spent 3D2N (23/12-25/12) in Krabi with a friend. Stayed at BaanHabeebee Resort and the service given by Patty, Mr Tee and Tammy WERE EXCELLENT. It is true that Krabi is a town of lovely people. I've fall in love not only to the place, but also with the local people there.
Highly recommended place to stay and would definitely come here again!

This small hotel is very nice, i was staying there for 2 nights with my family, total 9 member, so we almost have the full hotel for ourselves with 5 rooms from a total of 6 rooms, the first evening was good but a little bit bar from the restaurant around as there is no restaurant in the hotel, and a bit far from the center, the neighborhood are very noise at night.
The second evening was ok, and the manager were nice to go and pick up some food for us because it was raining...
The day after in the morning my sister was crying because she just find out that someone came to her room and stole her money, a total of 250Euros, we went to the police station and one hour after they call us with the manager to tell us that they don t find anything and no finger prints... and that's it the case was close already!
Look like that kind story happen often there.
Be careful to anyone who s staying at this hotel and the area of this hotel is not safe as well.

Room Tip: The room just near the reception a the corner is not safe at all (my sister room), and there is a do...

This small cottage resort deserves a much higher ranking than it has received. Everything was to our expectations...airport pickup, service, staff & room. Mac is a fantastic host who responded to all email enquiries before arriving and helped us out while we were there. We were actually staying at a different resort on our last day but Mac still picked us up personally & dropped us at the airport.

The cottages are impeccable, beautiful design & construction. The bed was great, shower hot, breakfast decent & WIFI/TV was convenient if you had the time. When you're not off island hopping the pool is a superb place to enjoy a lazy swim.

As mentioned in other reviews the location is not the greatest but a 3x daily free shuttle makes it less a hassle. Otherwise, expect a minimal fee of 100B for tuktuk service from AoNang. With the location comes total serenity & a proper holiday feeling...it's very busy/noisy in town.

Next time we are in the Krabi area we will not hesitate to stay at Baan Habeebee again, let's just hope Mac is still there!

As a frequent traveller i always read about hotels on this site and was sceptical about this place as it was quite far down the list, but, putting all that aside we decided to try it as it looked so peaceful and relaxing and....we were not disappointed. What a little gem! on arrival we were picked up from the airport by Ice one of the boys who works here, didn't have to wait at all. Mac the manager greeted us at the resort, everyone were very friendly. we were taken to our log cabin which were amazing and so clean you could eat your meals off the floor! that, we found out at a later stage was the immaculate work of Tammy who cleans them and what a darling she is. The resort is situated about 10 mins from Ao nang by Tuk Tuk or the resort do a free shuttle every so often, Tuk tuk works out at 100 BHT, or Knoppharata Beach is about 15 min walk with its seafood restaurants, The resort has very limited food available but mac cooks the curries and is a must! and it works out cheaper than some of the restaurants. cans of beer is cheap too about 45BHT and its the same price out of the mini bar in the room. anyone drinking wine has to pay a fortune the cheapest was in the mini mart in Ao nang for 679 BHT 2 litre, all the others were that price per litre.expect to pay on avarage 160 per glass.
Tours: we arranged all our tours with the hotel which made it simple also they can take you privately to the Tiger cave, hot springs, Emerald pool and elephant trekking we found it so much nicer as you can walk around at your leisure.
All in all this place is really worth going to, you will not be disappointed, its like one big family, and so peaceful, there are only six cabins and if everyone is out its like having your own garden with a pool. its far enough out of Ao Nang for the peace but near enough if you want the nightlife. your choice.
The owner was paying a visit while we were there from korea he was very friendly and was genuinely interested what we thought of the place, such a nice person.
we had the thai massages that were on offer at the resort and the girls were lovely and for the same price or maybe 100BHT more than Ao Nang you had the privacy of your own room, definitely worth having.
this is one little gem you wont want to miss,
keep up the good work Mac, Tammy and the boys, loved every minute of our stay
