Great place. We were here with my wife last november and we were really delighted. We were looking place like this since when we landed in Thailand - simple bamboo bungalow on the beach (or near the beach). And we were not disapointed :-) The bungalows are simple, but they have electricity and bathroom with toilet. There were also fan... More

Thank you Nui for everything you did for us. For our talks, for the pool games and for all the love, you put into your place. If I come to Krabi again, I will visit you again for sure :) For everybody else: Laughing Gecko is perfect for you, if you don't visit for luxury but for seeing the real... More

My friend and I stayed for one week at Laughing Gecko (we only planned for a few nights, but couldn´t bring ourselves to leave earlier). It was an incredible relaxed, familiar atmosphere which was created by the owner Nui. We had a lot of fun there: enjoying the flair of Thailand, relaxing in hammocks, making music with Nui and other... More

A cosy Bungalow that would have graced the pages of " Lonely Planet" 20-odd years ago (prior to lonely planet losing its way). A lovely place at the quieter end of Ao Nang beach (Nopparat Thawa beach), a 20 Baht song-Thau ride to Noisy Ao Nang central. Nuie, Thank you for organizing our Elephant rides, Cooking School and 4-Island Tour... More

We stayed in Laughing Gecko Bungalows for 7 days and we found it more than relaxing. Nui, the owner is very charismatic person who was nice and helpful all the time. It was also very interesting to talk with him. This place is very social, we met so many other travellers and we shared endless talks and fun with them,... More

The wonderful Luis provides a lovely laid back atmosphere hidden in the cashew nut trees. It's a very sorry walk to the quieter beach of Nopparat Thara - blissful compared to the craziness of Ao Nang! I love it here, I'll definitely be back. Luis even found me some crutches to use when I twisted my ankle. :) Also having... More

The Laughing Geko was the first place myself and my partner stayed in when we got to Thailand and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We jumped on a bus outside Krabi airport which dropped us off right outside the entrance which was a nice surprise. The owner is incredibly friendly and made us feel very welcome. The bungalows are basic... More

Stayed here for 10 nights recently. Very peaceful and relaxing, 2 minute walk to the beach and main strip. The bungalows are fun to stay in. Wifi works well in the bungalows. Many nice birds in the garden. Helpful owner who speaks English very well.

I only got to stay 1 night at Laughing Gecko but the place has such good energy that I felt a little sad to leave. As a solo female traveller, I felt completely safe and comfortable the moment I arrived. Great location with close proximity to the beach (2 min walk), but is tucked away in a quiet street and...
