Me and a friend stayed here for a few nights in January. When we arrived it was raining and they gave us some umbrellas to walk to our room. We had the best time the family made us feel so welcome and the surroundings are beautiful. The food was also great. I would go back again hopefully for longer next... More

I stayed at Phanom Bencha Mountain Resort for six days while taking part in a field trip. The bungalow was basic but with a good bed, clean bathroom and a view from the verandah to die for. The owners Son and Joop were warm and caring and treated me like family. The restaurant served great Thai food and the Western... More

The view is unreal. Definitely do not stay here if you are not fit because it is a hike up and down the mountain to the little cabins. I am glad I stayed here because I love nature but don't like to buy camping equipment so this was in between. Even though I had a hard time sleeping because the... More

Hi Jillian! Thank you for your positive review! Sorry, I didn't get a chance to meet you, I've been out with a back injury for three weeks. Staying at our resort is a bit like camping with a roof over your head! You did come during one of the hottest times of the year (the hottest), so I understand why... More

Thsi is the way Krabi should be seen, and the way it used to be before mass tourism hit Ao Nang. If tranquility, and a place of outstanding natural beauty is what you prize rather than proximity to a crowded beach and noisy nightlife, I doubt you could do btetter. Very Highly reccommended!

This was my favourite place that we stayed in Thailand. Nestled in the jungle, this resort is a magical retreat. The grounds are meticulous with a number of private bungalows spread out, offering privacy and serenity. For those who are heat-challenged, there is even a unit that offers air conditioning. This is a unique experience for those who will appreciate... More

I stayed at Phanom Bencha Mountain Resort for four days in early January 2016 with my husband and two boys aged seven and five. The resort is breathtakingly luscious, like a giant botanical garden teeming with exotic plants, fruits trees and birds, interspersed by ponds and a picturesque stream. Pick your own bananas, jackfruit or pineapples if you wish. The... More

Ok I can't stress enough that this place is in the middle of the wilderness and you are therefore surrounded by a multitude of critters, frogs, lizards and other little dudes. While the room was quite clean, the mosquitoe net over our bed was covered in lizard droppings. There was also a big gecko living in the ceiling and it... More

I had an amazing experience at this resort. Wonderful people - great food - and a beautiful backdrop. For birders: found many species of Sunbirds and flowerpeckers up near the pool and surrounding areas. Highlights: orange-bellied flowerpecker and an orange-headed thrush.

at an absolutely awesome location! Have to say though this is for nature lovers only as the cabins are very basic with a bed and toilet not the most comfortable but what do you expect for experiencing nature. You will have loads of creepy crawlies around but not that bad but like I said nature lovers only. Now the family... More

The host Son, is fantastic a remarkable man. who made the whole experience so personal we felt like family rather than customers. The accommodation itself is a basic hut, no fridge, no tv, just two bedrooms a bathroom and a balcony to chill. Wifi is only available in the restaurant area. It does have an outdoor pool.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have a wilderness resort that puts you hand-in-hand with nature just outside Krabi Town in Krabi province. We have bungalows with fans and our grounds are naturally landscaped with beautiful grass areas and pools of water, hiking treks through the jungle and more! Most visitors come to Phanom Bencha Mountain Resort for some peace and relaxation. Some come to meditate. Some come to write books or have a nice time with the family without outside distractions. We have nature and wildlife walks at night available - just ask! Our food is cooked on-site and we have had excellent reviews in this area! No need to leave the resort, but you can go shopping in town easily if you desire! Best Regards! Son R. ... more   less
