Viking Natures Resort

The resort itself is beautiful, however the service is the worst I have ever come across. Firstly they wouldnt respond to my 5-10 emails I sent once I made a booking. We booked a room for 3 and had to ask twice for towels and instead of receiving 3 we received 2 towels. Had to ask twice for the rubish to be collected, for more toilet paper. We had freezing cold showers the entire stay. I've asked the staff twice to check it out and nothing happened. The second time I enquired about the freezing cold water the staff were smirking at me and still didnt do anything about it.

Room Tip: deluxe ocean view bungalow are beautiful and very spacious

The resort is so pretty, it is like a dream when you arrive there.
The tree house we had was also very pretty with an astonishing view. It had a mosquito net hanging over the bed which was necessary. The garden was beautiful, as were the beaches. You must not be afraid for insects though, since they easily can enter the house. Also, during nights, there is a lot of noice from the animals in the jungle and from the music from the bars close to the pier. This is a pearl in the paradise but unfortunately the staff was not very friendly and when we wanted to order food and drinks in the restaurant we had to find the menu's ourselves a couple of times, the staff was highly unobservant. When we got there, we were picked up by a longtail boat for free belonging to the resort, whereas when we were checking out and had to go back to the pier we needed to pay 100 Baht per person for the longtail boat.

We truly believe that this resort could be amazing if it was managed differently, then we would like to go back!

The best view and zone of Ko Phi Phi. Farm of the crazy town and inside the nature. In the middle of the jungle, beautiful bungalows in front of the beach and sea.
The idea and the scene are glorious, but you can find mousse inside the room and nobody (the hotel people) care about.
Are many much difference between a room of 1.200 (very poor) and other of 2.500 (incredible depends of one you take).
The place (the beach and Resort) are not very clean. You can find a lot of plastic bootle on the beach and rest of construction material under the bungalow (Viking material's)

If you want to experience and have a beautiful and amazyng days in the middle of the jungle and in front of the sea, and you dont care about the trash or the poor customer service and level of response, this ia the best place no the island.
All that not depends 100% of the Viking people are perfect.
But the restorant, the bar or the breakfast could close much before of the real time, and that is another problem if you are in the middle of no where and without another option.

It is fantastic place to stay and relax. We called it paradise on earth! It’s so sad we stayed there only two days
We were met in port and brought to resort by boat. First time I saw it I couldn’t believe how beautiful it is.
You can’t use to the beauty in this place. Our villa was fantastic. They thought about every detail that made me smile all the time!!
Staff was good…very relax, nobody in a hurry. Sometimes you have to get your menu yourself but is it a problem? No.
Breakfast was average but it was enough. In the evening you can try Thai food for free. I also chose fresh fish that was made for me on BBQ.
Food was fantastic and prices were very good for food and drinks (great coctails).
We enjoyed every minute in this Resort. Next time in Thailand will definitely stay there for more than 2days.
Fantastic experience!

We loved the huts and bungalows, they are unique and exotic, exactly what we wanted. The location is perfect: far enough from Ton Sai to stay away from the crowd but close enough to go for dinner or a drink (20 min. walk). There are 2 private beaches and they are both very nice. The restaurant is right on the beach and the food is good. I definitely recommend this hotel, I would go again with no hesitation. I suggest to get a superior room, they are quieter and bigger.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Three of us stayed in Makmai 2B. It was cosy and clean. Some of the lights in the room didn't work but we didn't mind too much since the views were stunning. The resort food was good and we didn't mind the noise at night since we were out anyway. It was a bit of a walk every night after going out into the main 'town' (maybe 20 mins) but it felt safe. The two beaches were the best we visited in Thailand (we went to Krabi, Phi Phi, Phangan and Tao).

Would highly recommend. Would be a perfect honeymoon place! We felt like it was a bit of a waste on three friends.

The Viking Nature Resort is in an ideal location in a small private bay just around the corner from the main Phi Phi Don port with busy, cramped hotels, hostels and bars. A 5min long tail boat ride from there will take you to a quiet part of the island facing Phi Phi Le in the distance and sheltered from the ocean so there are almost no waves on the beach.

The water is crystal clear and warm, perfect for a swim and has a rocky ridge on both sides with interesting things to see while snorkelling too. You can get a Thai massage in a sheltered hut right on the beach with very reasonable prices, while you admire the view.

My room was about 2,500 baht a night (no air con - just multiple fans) and this had a large comfortable bed with separate bathroom and was very clean and comfortable. If I visit Phi Phi Don again I will certainly be staying at the Viking again.
