We loved our stay at Bananas. There is such a family vibe here, everyone gets together every night to have dinner together and it’s just lovely ❤️ The food was AMAZING and INCREDIBLE for vegetarians/vegans (the owner himself is vegan). The view is beautiful, better than any 5* hotel I’ve been and it’s ALL FOR YOU! it’s so quiet and tranquil, we all watched the sunset together every night. This place is great if you want to have a few days to relax as there aren’t really any restaurants or things to do close by. Also, they don’t have sun loungers, just hammocks and picnic chairs, so catching a tan isn’t as easy! You can kayak to the islands close by which is cool!
This was an amazing place to relax and unwind after a busy 3 weeks exploring Thailand. My daughter and I stayed 3 nights and met some wonderful people here. Olli was an incredible host...very welcoming and entertaining. Pablo and Sinan who were volunteering there were also incredible as were all the staff. The food is family style at night for 150 baht and was delicious. Sunsets were beautiful! We wandered over to Le Passé-Temps hotel and enjoyed lunch and their resort on the beach as well. Thank you Olli and team! Jan and Hannah from Canada
I wanted a very special experience for my 31st birthday and this place did not let me down. Amazing food (vegan friendly if preferred), friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. We took out a kajak for a few hours, we enjoyed a great massage and had amazing food. The accommodation itself was very satisfying. It gets cleaned every day and it's very spacious. We stayed for three very relaxing nights. This place is perfect if you want a break from a busy holiday 😎 Take note: There is nothing else nearby. Not even an ATM. Therefore you can only eat and drink at the restaurant. Meals are very affordable - great value for money. And the most important thing: you pay all food and drinks when you check out. You can pay with PayPal or cash only. So plan ahead and enjoy every moment. …
Angie and I were part of a Family Expedition to the Krabi area and the team used Bananas as a base. It is run by a cheerful German, Oli, and his team. Accommodation consists of one room bungalows, with an adequate number of power points, and separate efficient showers and toilets. There is a rinsing tap by the bungalow verandah and hammocks for chilling out. A short pier through the mangroves leads to the beach. The sea is shallow here, even at high tide. You can hire kayaks cheaply and we did some exploration of the local islands. There are small cafes and restaurants within walking distance. Olli has quite a menagerie including a number of small friendly dogs and a small aviary. There is a limited menu with an evening dinner. Wine and beer are available at a reasonable price.
The most peaceful and beautiful place to stay for 2 weeks as a base for adventures with friends and family. Olli is the most amazing host; calm and friendly to all with a passion for his pet dogs, birds, rabbits, etc. The bungalows are simple, comfortable, clean and charming with plants leafing in between. Mangroves hide the spectacular sunset beach (with swing!). Food was a mixture of western and thai choice, all delicious.
