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

This is not to be missed... it is exactly as portrayed in the description and even more breathtaking and serene in reality. It’s exactly what it says on the tin !!! If you want to experience peace quiet and tranquility then this is the place for you. The traditional bamboo bungalows give a real essence to the experience and the views are breathtaking. It provides the opportunity to be away from the madness of every day life and absorb the wonders of life in the slow lane. Ollie makes you feel very welcome and is on hand to answer all your questions. There are plenty of opportunities to book trips or help to organise your own excursions. There are kayaks on site which allow you to make your way across the vast bay to a series of islands and if you are willing to put the effort in to paddle for a little over an hour you can have a whole island to yourself!! You do not need to be an experienced kayaker to achieve this. Life vests are provided and the only issue you may experience is the wind on occasion- there is no real tidal issue. You can order a pack lunch from the menu - rice / noodle / and meat, fish or vegetables. The local villagers are employed and their produce too is used which adds to the essence of what this is trying to provide. Moped hire is available at an unbeatable price and having looked through the guide on places to visit you can plan several excellent days out, just sit and relax, take a walk and explore or visit the secret beach - which involves a cliff descent - aided by tree roots acting as steps. The sunsets are awesome and the birds and monkeys fascinating to see as they go about their day. At the end of the day you can have a magical moment in the dark with the glowing plankton fish in water which resembles a bath.

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.
