While taking a trip around Krabi to see some waterfalls, we stumbled across the Phanom Bencha Mountain Resort, located just outside of Krabi and near Tiger Cave Temple. We loved the setting so much, we decided to come back and stay.
The resort offers budget accommodation in a 5-star setting. We paid 700 Baht for a night for a single bungalow and loved it, but might have been just as comfortable in a tent for 250 baht a night.
Complete with terraced pools, landscaped gardens, a wide variety of fruit trees, a beautiful restaurant overlooking a pond, and a natural swimming pool, we felt like we were living in the lap of luxury.
The place also offers treks to the adjacent national park, but we didn't have time to go. Maybe next time.
The manager, Mr. Son, is extremely knowledgable about the Krabi area and is interesting to talk to. Because he was a former dive shop manager, he was able to give us some tips about the local dive scene.
I would highly recommend this site to anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.
