Bananas Bungalows is a secluded bungalow and guesthouse refuge and nature lovers paradise. Here you\'ll enjoy comfortable bungalow facilities on a budget. What our visitors love most about Banana Bungalows is the relaxed, familiar atmosphere and the beautiful natural mountain, mangrove and seaside surroundings.
Located roughly 30 km from Krabi town in Ban Tha Lane (also spellt Ban Tha Len and Ao Tha Lane) we offer a refuge for independent minded travellers wanting to sidestep Krabi\'s mass tourism. Here at the base of the \'Golden Mountain\' Khao Thong, in our quiet sanctuary from Thailand\'s tourist resort hustle and bustle, you\'ll enjoy the best of both worlds: the opportunity to totally unwind while simultaneously enjoying a wide variety of activities (this region is famous for as well as easy access to the nearby resort centers of Ao Nang and Krabi.
With a limited capacity of 19 guests, Bananas Bungalows is the ideal place to relax with a book on the shady bungalow porch, laze in a hammock or deck chair on the pier, or be treated to superb Thai cuisine including fresh seafood, delicious curries and refreshing fruit shakes all lovingly prepared in our restaurant by Bananas Bungalows wonderful local chef Tscha Dam.
We look forward to welcoming you to your home away from home at Bananas Bungalows resort - the gathering place of spectacular sunsets!
Oliver was such a gracious host! He gave us a free upgrade because the bamboo villa that we had booked were full. He also gave us a lot of information about where to go and what to do in Krabi and organized our motorcycle and taxi rentals very easily and without any fuss. We also went to Ao Tha Lane canyon for a mangrove kayaking experience which was wonderful! It was just off the nearby pier to Bananas and is definitely one of the best things we did in Krabi.
The villa we stayed in was beautiful (no. 12) and right next to the pier, which was really beautiful and serene. Great place to watch the sunset :) The communal dinner at Bananas was also delicious and very reasonably priced. Of course, if you want, there are several other food options available nearby and a whole host of options if you go to Aonang beach or Krabi town.
Bananas is a beautiful option tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Aonang beach. Highly recommended to anyone who wants an alternative getaway besides the general resort and backpacker experience.
This place is about one thing- community. You won't be overwhelmed with amazing food or air conditioning or any luxury...but you will be showered with love and amazing friends you will meet. You will see great sunsets and enjoy trips with these new friends. You will discover a secret beach and cry when you leave. My wife and I went expecting a cheap place to stay and thought we may stay one night. We ended up staying 3 nights and didn't want to leave. Olli is an amazing host and is friendly and helpful. Don't miss out on this opportunity.
Bring an extra towel for extra activities you will do and mosquito spray.
Mangroves paradise .... hosted by the wonderful Oliver. A very personable and helpful host indeed.. I has intended to stay one week during my 4 week stay in the Krabi area. I was so taken with the place I stayed for 2 weeks. The setting is stunning , the hosting was perfect , food delicious and varied, and Oliver's Thai cooks and gardener were polite, friendly and approachable.
I could not get enough of the peace and quiet, the pace of the place, and beautiful sunsets over the water and the ever-changing light.
I didn't wish to ride a motorbike, but I managed perfectly well on public transport, taking myself to Tiger Temple Cave, and into Krabi town. enjoyed 4 Island boat trip and Kayaking through the mangroves , Oliver makes available a range of transport choices, to suit your needs.
I stayed in 3 different bungalows during my stay , the bungalow opposite the open dining area requires the use ear plugs :) that is if sleep is vital to you, , though people tended to head for rest before midnight . On the whole, the guests were very considerate. The quietest bungalow was number 14 furthest away from the eating area. Here I felt very in touch with nature, shy monkeys would pass by, crabs in shells foraging in the undergrowth , frogs and amazing bird sounds, ....tidal waters ebbing and flowing through the 'snap crackle and popping' mangroves roots ...truly magical.
I met some lovely people during my stay, and was able to pass time after dinner playing cards and enjoying listening to peoples interesting experiences.
I found a range of good books, DVDs to enjoy , WiFi, and most of all, I found a QUIET place, I could hear the sounds of nature throughout the day and evening , a venue without annoying and subjective music choices ... this made a refreshing change. In my personal opinion headphones are made for the listening of music.
Bananas get 10/10 from me .Thank you Oliver and your wonderful team . for a truly gentle and memorable stay.. I look forward to returning .

Originally there should stayed only my friends. It happened, however, that I missed a plane, so I showed there unannounced in the middle of the night. Oliver was very friendly and warmly welcomed me :-)
The bungalows are very cozy and tastefully decorated. The environment is also very nice and safe. The food was very tasty. We enjoyed our stay.
A very nice place to relax and unwind.
Olli is a very nice guy and understands to create a familiar and friendly atmosphere.Good value for money.
Be aware that you are of the beaten track. We had a car - so for us this wasn't a problem at all. We enjoyed very much being away from the touristic areas around Ao Nang and Krabi
Love Bananas Bungalows! It is set in a beautiful and peaceful location. (The sunset is gorgeous.) Lots of hammocks, deck chairs, and shady tables. This is a perfect place to chill out and relax with book, mid-vacation. Ollie and staff are super helpful and friendly. The food is a bit pricier than other local places, but not by much, and it is delicious. It is also a bit out of town, so if you are wanting to be in the middle of the action of Krabi Town, you may want to find another place to stay. Overall, I highly recommend this place!
Beautiful place, lovely accommodation! Perfect for a peaceful break! Lovely host and staff! X
Oliver was an excellent host! He was very helpful and friendly and accommodating! He runs an excellent business and we loved our experience in Krabi :)
Oli is a nice host.The Bungalows are new and very clean and our was right next to the water. The food is very good and not expensive. You can do day trips organized by the host our rent a motorbikes and do something on your own (e.g. drive to the next sandy beach, only five minutes away)
If you want to stay at a lovely quite place with nothing in the area and you don't care that there is no sandy beach at the bananas bungalow place ( only a lovely landing stage in the water sourrounded by mangroves), we would recommend anytime!
