“Wonderful hospitality from Annie, lovely bungalows”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

A group of us were all in Koh Lanta to celebrate my birthday, and as soon as we'd arrived Annie made us feel so welcome. The bungalows are really nicely done- big room, huge bed, good air-con and lots of other homely touches. The beach is great, not too busy even in peak season and loads of good restaurants and bars. There's loads to do on Koh Lanta and it's very easy to get about.
My birthday was made really special, when Annie took us all to the German bakery for breakfast (also throughout recommended!). Such kindness really is unprecedented, and very very much appreciated! We were made to feel so welcome, we were really sad to leave. Hope we can one day go back!

I can just affirm the positive reviews of others. Restaurant is good value compared to the neighboring restaurants. Annie was very helpful after we had forgotten our passports in the hotel safe and had them delivered to the airport. One thing that need fixing are the electrical outlets - most of ours had problem delivering electricity if you didn't get the plug at a certain angle by propping it up with something.

We recently stayed at the Banana Garden with our 2 children aged 9 and 11. The wooden bungalows were clean and simple with comfortable beds. They are a very short walk to the beach. The beach was clean and great for walking along and swimming and our kids enjoyed the rocks pools at low tide further along the beach. The food at Banana Garden was excellent. Good value with quick and friendly service. We really enjoyed a pre-dinner drink at The Indian next door before dinner on the beach at Banana Garden at sunset. The sun beds on the covered deck were fabulous for relaxing on and reading. Annie was very helpful booking our ferry and taking us to the pier when we departed.

My husband and I came with his mum and a friend. We had two bungalows, which were perfect. Very clean and still have a wonderful rustic feel because they're built predominantly with wood. Really loved our stay here. Annie is a star! We loved her! She became like an auntie to us. She helped us with so much, e.g. booking taxis, day-trips and much more. We enjoyed drinks at The Indian bar just in front of Banana and treatments at the massage salon just opposite. Food at the Banana restaurant is good. Breakfast is basic (tea/coffee, toast and watermelon). We would very gladly go back to Banana!

Every 5 star review is correct. Great basic accomidation great price, clean, less then one minute walk to the beach, and! Annie! Annie is amazing and added that extra perfection to our stay. Book tours through her because they are seriouly the best prices. Also while i Koh Lanta eat as many mangosteens as you can (you can not find them in the United States) Annie knew how much i love them so every morning there would be a full bag of them on our front balcony. (Those little things made our stay extra special)

We stayed 3 nights in Banana Garden.
This place deserves the Number 1 in Trip advisor... We were told that Annie brings a lot to the place and this was confirmed. The wooden bungalows are simple and clean, all very close to the beach. There is no direct view to the sea but it is 50m walk... The restaurant is good, one of the cheapest of the beach. (Try the Tom Kah seafood soup or the grilled fresh fish).
The long flat beach is good for jogging and family since you need to walk far in the water to be able to swim. The next door bar on the beach (Indian) will keep you entertained with the fire show every night, though it is not noisy at night.
Make sure you are early enough on the beach for the amazing sunset.
We loved it and would recommend the place for families and couples. Annie can even get you lower prices for the attractions...

Our family of 6 adults and 2 children stayed at Banana Garden in November, 2012. The whole stay was wonderful. Annie was amazing. Our son-in-law went deep sea fishing and upon return with his catch Annie took it to the kitchen, made fillets and then brought a bbq onto the beach and cooked if for us with some wonderful sauce she made. She also got boogie boards for the kids and just did everything to help us feel comfortable. She even arranged the 3 island tour for us and got a much lower price than others on our tour. I would go back in a heartbeat. Best place we stayed in Thailand.
