Reviewed 13 July 2016

Right on the beach and great swimming. It is quite far from anything else so would recommend hiring a motorbike which makes Ao Nang or even Klong Mueng beach very accessible. Rooms very clean and we had wifi (sometimes) in our room which was room number 1. Staff friendly. Restaurant food good but pricey. Airport transfer prices extravagant so would recommend going to Ao Nang from airport and hiring a bike from there. About a 10-15 min drive from there.

Room Tip: We liked room no.1

It is alternative accommodation and it is not for everyone. We just wanted to be away from busy, ordinary tourist places that Thailand is known by so we booked five days at Pine Bungalow.
They organised transfer from and to the airport and in general someone from the staff was there around a clock in the case we had needed something. To explore and browse around we rented a scooter from them as well.
Have to say that everything was fairly prices and we were not able to match those prices (scooter rent, food and drinks) anywhere around.
The bungalow we got was on the prime spot at the beach front and had air conditioning.
The only two things that can be improved is to provide duvet covers / sheets and of course waste management. the latter seems to be general issue in Thailand. Saying that I have to say that the resort was regularly cleaned and everything was in order.
If you like / love pets there is additional bonus as they have few dogs and cats that are loved and good care is taken about. All animals were very friendly and cuddly.
We liked so much that we already booked larger bungalow for the next winter and will bring more people with us.

Room Tip: beach front bungalows are #1 to #4

Secluded and quiet! Only 15 minutes from town! Hotel has everything you need! Yummy dining services, cheap laundry and a beautiful beach! There's a basketball court and volleyball court that's super fun! Hammocks all over the property and a swing on the beach. You can rent mopeds which we did everyday for only 200 baht, super worth it! We loved our stay!!

The staff were friendly when we first arrived. The location of the hotel is a bit far off the track from places like Krabi or Ao Nang. Within walking distance, one can reach Muang beach, where there are few stalls offering street food.

We made a mistake by not selecting rooms with air conditioner. I did not have good night sleeps there due to mosquitoes or ants (flying ants after dark). This is not the fault of the hotel but simply we were in a mini forest! There were one or two nights which were fine.

To be fair, I had wonderful time here too - the beach which was only few yards away (stoney beach though), sun-set, calm and quiet place, lighthouse ; one night, the electric went off, I even slept on the beach and saw shooting stars!

If you like peace and quiet then this is the place to come to. For us 7 days here was a bit too much, may be 2 days would have been fine. I would have prefered an accomodation in Ao Nang, where all the happenings were!

There were few days when we went away and didn't have dinners in the place. Somehow the hotel staff didn't seem happy about that? And the laundry was poorly done - wasn't ironed at all (only discovered when we were leaving). There was an occasion when our Thai friend was treated rudely.

In conclusion, if you like peace and quiet, then this is the place to be. But if you also enjoy the night life, shopping and all activities, then choose an accomodation in Ao Nang town itself.

Room Tip: Air conditioner is a must to fend off mosquitoes, insects and ants (probably)

If you don't like busy touristy places but still want to stay in Krabi area, this spot is PERFECT! Rooms are just good enough for 3-4 nights, nice and tidy. You have beach almost to yourself!!! It is very nice and quiet not much to do but you can easily get from here to Riley Beach or Hong Islands. You can book a good price taxi wit them or a boat trips and rent a scooter. The food is VERY nice and very good value.
