Great nature and athmodphere in the middle of jungle. If we will come to Krabi one more time, I am going to stay again
Lots of mosquitos
The simple bungalows are located on a hill with beautiful, lush nature and beautiful view. The pool is located on the top of the hill, which means walking up in the heat... The rock pool is very nice and surrounded of the jungle. There were only a few plastic chairs no loungers, so it was not comfortable to spend all day there, just to sit in those chairs. Unfortunately the restrooms next to the pool were not cleaned for a longer time.
The owners are certainly very nice and outgoing people, and they put a great effort in cooking and working in the landscape. But they also should focus more for the bungalows and services for their guests. This place was the only one we did not receive daily free drinking water in the room. There is also no welcome juice, like other hotels provide. So you have to buy the drinking water from the restaurant. They only provide on the first day 3 towels which we should use for pool and shower. Of course, this is a no go. Towels for the pool have to be additional - also in the jungle... They did not provide new towels and toilet paper the next day, neither did they clean the room (bathroom was not clean, when we arrived). We had to ask for new towels/paper. The price is every day the same, so the same amenities have to be provided each day. Also what we missed were comfortable deck loungers on the bungalow terraces. In a place like this, where people love to sit outside of their huts to enjoy the scenery, they should exchange the small little "kitchen" chairs for comfortable chairs, like other hotels provide. What we really did not like, was, that they keep birds in small cages around the restaurant. It was terrible when the same kind of bird came to visit all the time one of the birds in the cage... I am sure, they think this gives the hotel a tropical feeling. But nowadays, when people are so much focused on the wellbeing of the nature, and this is also the reason why to choose a jungle lodge, it is not understandable to have birds in cages. Also they keep a bull in the middle of the sun all day (we had 40 d. C.). When I asked, why they do that to the poor animal, they said, in order that he looses weight, to be strong to fight... So this surely took our "we love the nature here" - feeling away.
The natural pool and surrounding gardens and views is amazing.
The owners are awesome
