We stayed 5 nights ( had planned to stay for 3 but decided to extend) and had a wonderful experience. Peaceful garden resort, spotlessly clean, great choice of breakfast and very helpful staff. I would recommend this hotel very highly.
What a calm and peaceful oasis away from the bustle of Ao Nang town and beach area, but close enough to walk there. Ban Sainai offers a stay with the best of both worlds. The hotel is in a beautiful setting beneath the tall limestone cliffs and in wonderful stunning gardens. The rooms are set amongst the lovely plants. Large , very clean and spacious with efficient air conditioning (also mosquito net over bed, which we did not need to use). Nice little welcoming touches, a jar of dried banana; a lovely smell in the bathroom where there is an oil diffuser with a little night light to have the aroma throughout your stay. Complimentary tea and coffee replenished daily. A fridge to chill drinks/food if desired. Mosquito spray on the shelf (to purchase) Lots of room to unpack and hang clothes; a wooden hanger on the verandah for drying laundry. I really appreciated the excellent non-slip bathroom tiles. Never come across any this good! Internet in the room also TV with good choice of channels. The staff at Ban Sainai are incredible. SO friendly, SO helpful, SO nice! Wherever we encountered them - at reception, the restaurant, poolside bar, always always so very kind. The ethos here is quiet, peace, calm and that is exactly how it feels. The swimming pool is super too - large enough to never be crowded and with some shade from the towering palms, so you can either swim in sunshine or in shade. The buffet breakfast is laid out in an air-conditioned room with plenty of choice. (I had never tried charcoal bread before) Lots of variety both in hot and cold dishes, plus the usual grill to have your toast the way you like it. There is nothing at all not to love about Ban Sainai. It is wonderful! I recommend it whole-heartedly and really hope to return to stay again one day.…
Spent one night here in a very comfortable little villa. Loved the pool with the views and the perfect grounds. Lots of nature around with sounds of geckos and even a monitor lizard blocking our path to the restaurant, all part of the experience in this hidden gem of a resort. Speaking of restaurant only breakfast was offered, but plenty of choices within walking distance or a very shory drive to the beach front. We would have no hesitation staying here again.
I traveled with friends to Krabi and we stayed here just one night. The resort is lovely because the owner and team take a very good care of all facilities. It is green and lush every where you look at. We stayed in a two bedrooms house that has bath tub & jacuzzi. Bed is very comfy and hotel amenities have all what we need. Breakfast is served as a la carte due to New Normal lifestyle. Foods are delicious and what we like is ingredients are local growth. The resort supports local people by buying these ingredients from local farm. Once you are in this resort, you will forget the outside world! Must try if you are in Ao Nang Krabi.
This place is amazing! Check-in was easy. The rooms were clean and well furnished. The view from our balcony was absolutely incredible. The food by the pool was excellent. The service from everyone was top notch. My wife and I got thai messages there. We both say it was the best message we've ever had. I've been looking up facilities in the US that do thai messages now after the experience we had at Ban Sainai. I would go back again in an instant. This is a dry resort. The lack of alcohol didn't really bother us. We went into town and had some drinks with dinner. As long as you are aware that it is an alcohol free resort then you will have a wonderful time.
