"Nice two day room."
Nice place in the forest. It was hard to get too and once you where there it was pretty nice. Had its own beach that was just ok. The beach down the road was better. The room was big and roomy the bed was hard though like all the other rooms in Thailand. Yes, I would stay here again.

"Perfect, calm, stylish on the beach"
Everything was perfect!!! Only room for improvement is the hotel restaurant, which need to develop menues and staff in order to make Ban Krating guests stay for lunch and dinner as well. The breakfast buffet is great, however. More fun, better food at less price at Ao Sane, next door.

"Beautiful setting"
This hotel is in a beautiful setting with a nice small secluded beach and walking distance to two other beaches-there is a shuttle as well. My complaint would be the staff did not seem to care about quality of service-seemed indifferent and this is not what we encountered at other hotels in the country. If you want a quiet stay in a jungle atmosphere, you may want to try this.

"Great hotel but hard to find with hire car"
the hotel was hard to find because we landed in Phuket in darkness and we hired a car. Tried getting directions from night staff but language barrier didn't help and phone number on web site wasn't correct. The overall stay was great at the hotel because it was a great location and fabulous setting in the rain forest. Staff was so friendly but we found that with the entire Thai people. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be away from it all and enjoy the tranquil setting this hotel has to offer. Breakfast was very limited though would enjoyed a better variety because we stayed another at another baan krating hotel and the breakfast had more choice. Loved the experience and would definitely stay again.

À peu près le seul endroit sur l'île où on puisse être tranquille ... L'hôtel est situé au bout d'un chemin en impasse, dans un petit bout de forêt preservé (enfin !), avec plusieurs petites plages privées. Les bungalows, traditionnels ou en "dur", sont astucieusement disséminés dans le jardin. Celui que nous avons eu, en "dur" et vue mer, était vraiment très bien.

Underbar hotel med en stor terass med utsikt över havet. Kunde även ligga i sängen eller sitta på toan och se havet. Det var även bra snorkling på hotelets egena lilla strand, mycket olika fiskar men inte så mycket levande koraller. Restaurang hade inte så stort utbud men det fanns en mysig på nästa lilla stand också.

"Bitte nicht buchen, Katalogbeschreibung ist Lüge"
Anlage liegt mitten im Urwald, sehr abseits und ist stark in die Jahre gekommen, Bilder auf der Internetseite entsprechen keinesfalls der Realität und wurden vermutlich vor 10 Jahren aufgenommen ohne jegliche Renovierung, alte verdreckte Liegen, keine Schirme, Auflagen mit Löcher und verschmutzt, Strandbar nicht vorhanden (Bruchbude), Wassersport nicht vorhanden, Strand verdreckt, Clubhaus nicht vorhanden, würde das Hotel nicht mal mehr geschenkt besuchen, bin froh, dass wir wieder zu Hause sind.

"Sehr schöne Anlage im Grünen"
Die Anlage liegt am einem der schönsten Strände in Phuket am Nai Harn Beach. Die Zimmer sind sehr schön eingerichtet, sind zwar ein bißchen abgewohnt, was aber bei dem Preis in Ordnung ist. Wir hatten ein wunderschönes Zimmer mit Meerblick. Perfekt zum entspannen und abseits der trubligen Städte in Phuket. Das Personal hat sich sehr um uns bemüht. Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit.

"site tellement beau qu'on accepte les faiblesses"
LORS DE NOTRE ARRIVEE, la réservation faite la veille n'était pas visible sur leur ordinateur, il a fallu insister pour qu'ils vérifient, et cela sans sourire de leur part! Nous avions demandé une chambre pas trop loin de l'accueil ! nous etions quasiment la chambre la plus éloignée. Par contre notre chambre deluxe pavilion room était immense et superbe, salle de bain comprise. Plus généralement : emplacement exceptionnel avec plage quasi privée, et très beau site de snorkeling. Dernier bémols : - petit déjeuner vraiment pauvre, au final pour les européens juste des toast, 2 types fruits, et des oeuts pré cuits sur les 2 cotés - le personnel est vraiment incompétent, des jeunes qui ne parlent pas anglais et n'ont vraiment aucune formation d'hotellerie, même minimum

"Wauw snorkelen en rust.."
Heerlijk hotel in de jungle en aan een fantastisch strandje waar je super kan snorkelen. De mooiste vissen zijn we hier tegen gekomen die we zeker niet in andere delen van thailand zagen (zelfs niet cuba,mexico). Ontbijt was magertjes en weinig keus. Je zit afgelegen van een toeristisch strand met heel veel eet gelegenheid maar dat is bekend. Scooter huren in het hotel is een goede aanrader en makkelijk en leuk.

"Paradis bortom de värsta turistfällorna"
+Fantastiskt, avskilt, på stranden, lugnt och lantligt, snorkla direkt från stranden -enda negativa var att restaurangen på hotellet borde utveckla menyer och personal så att det blir mer drag, vi hittade snabbt till intilliggande strandrestaurang med bättre utbud

"Manque d'entretien, dommage !"
Je réserve une fois par an dans cet hôtel, et c'est malheureusement avec amertume que je donne un avis plutôt négatif. J'ai toujours aimé l'emplacement de cet hôtel, isolé mais loin de l'agitation touristique et au milieu de la jungle. La piscine est placée en hauteur et offre une vue magnifique sur la mer et la nature. C'est regrettable mais les compliments s'arrêtent là... En quelques années l'hôtel s'est dégradé, il manque d'entretien. Les chambres et le mobilier sont vieillissants, le ménage est loin d'être abouti (cheveux dans les coins, éclaboussures de dentifrice dans la salle de bains quand vous prenez votre chambre,...). Sur la terrasse du restaurant que j'affectionnais particulièrement, les chaises en bois exotique ont été remplacées par des chaises en plastique blanc dont la saleté est repoussante. Au petit déjeuner, le personnel évite soigneusement de dresser des tables sur la terrasse afin que vous ne vous installiez que dans la salle (pour raccourcir la distance lorsqu'ils débarrassent ?), insistez pour profiter du dehors ! Oubliez le café que l'on vous propose une fois installé, c'est devenu du self. Le personnel est là mais ne fait rien. Il y avait avant un cuisinier qui faisait cuire des œufs ou une omelette, il faudra maintenant vous contenter des œufs au plat chauffés et réchauffés sous les cloches... Le resort semble vivoter aujourd'hui de l'argent qu'il tire de groupes arrivant tard le soir et partant tôt le matin, pas de service pour les autres. On m'a laissé trainer 1h un scooter (dont la roue avait crevé à cause du mauvais entretien des planches de leur pont) jusqu'à un garage sans me proposer de le charger dans le pick-up. Désespérant ! J'adorais cet hôtel quand nous l'avons découvert il y a 10 ans. Je pleure maintenant ces souvenirs, je ne reviendrais probablement pas...

Отель хорош прежде всего своей индивидуальностью. Место тихое, зеленое. Но отель удален от всего, это надо понимать. Очень часто с экскурсий не хотят подвозить до отеля(сложная дорога для транспорта).В море на своем пляже лучше входить в тапочках. Также, на бесплатном трансфере 4 раза в день подкидывают до песчаного большого пляжа Найхарн. Можно дойти и пешком. Сервис отеля вполне дружелюбный, но плохоговорящий на Английском. Ужинали в ресторане 1 раз- вкусно,дружелюбно, только устали ждать счет. По номеру (делюкс павильон) нареканий нет. Был сломан дверной замок и заблокирован сейф-все починили за 5 минут. Очень приятные терассы у номеров,с которых видно частично море. В целом-отель рекомендую тем, кто хочет уединения.

"Urlaub im Dschungel"
Man sollte sich bewusst sein, dass man einen Bungalow im thailändischen Dschungel, enige Kilometer fernab des nächsten Strandes, Nachtleben oder jeglichen anderen touristischen Angeboten bucht. Wer einfach nur seine Ruhe haben möchte, ist dort hervorragend aufgehoben und findet freundliches Personal. Die Nachteile sind ortsübliche Sauberkeit, langweiliges Frühstücksbüfet und einen eher kleinen Pool. Was man im Restaurant an Kaffee, selbst bei Bestellungen in Thai bekommt, ist eher Glückssache - war aber ab dem Moment, in dem man Thai sprach, richtig gewürzt, vorher eher touristisch abgeflacht. Ein Bus fährt alle 2 Stunden, ein Moped sollte man sich ausleihen oder gut zu Fuß unterwegs sein. Alternativ gibt es immer Taxis. Ich habe mit einigen Büchern bewaffnet den Urlaub sehr genossen, inbesondere, dass auch die anderen Gäste auf Kommunikation keinen Wert legten, weder Familien noch junge Russen anwesend waren und man wirklich Ruhe hatte. Wer botanisches oder zoologisches Interesse hat, findet naturgemäß sowohl in der Anlage als auch darum herum vieles Interessantes, was einem auch (was nicht stört) einschließlich der halbwilden Hunde auch besucht. Mein Herz gehört den Fröschen.

"Very good location but needs more maintenance!!!!"
02/17/16 Sofia-Kifissia Kifissia, Attiki, Greece
Very good silent and beautiful environment with some options for dining around but mainly the hotel has no good maintenance! The hotel doesn't worth the price at all!! But the silence and isolation of the location worthwhile! There are mosquito nets that is perfect to sleep with open balcony doors and listen the sea wave! If you prefer view it's better to choose beachfront rooms since seaview rooms has partial view to the sea because are behind other buildings! We paid more to have a beachfront room! Breakfast below average for the price you pay! No options like yogurt, variety of fruits, no cheese at all and only Thai breakfast options overcooked! Ask for an omelet instead! 15 minutes walk to the main beach! Beautiful sea in front but the pool smells bad! It needs more cleaning for the surrounding! Many garbage around that is so pity!

"Wonderful location , pity about the food !"
02/13/16 arteacherwales Crickhowell, United Kingdom
Delightful accomodation overlooking the small beach . Bungalow was spacious and clean but was looking a little careworn . The bed was huge but unfortunately the mattress was very firm. The location of this hotel is fantastic , a range of different buildings situated in a wonderfully verdant setting , very naturalistic, the small beach was great for swimming and snorkelling . There is however room for improvement ; there needs to be more sun beds , I could only see about half a dozen, which did lead to people leaving towels on them to claim ownership ! However , The main failing of this resort is the very poor quality of the food . Breakfast was very basic , cheap fruit juice , cheap jam , poor bread . Tea was undrinkable due to being stewed ( I ended up taking my own tea bag ) the only fresh fruit offered was pineapple and watermelon . No yoghurt, which is very unusual. One morning my husband ordered egg and bacon which arrived stone cold as if it had been made hours before . After experiencing breakfast we didn't eat in the restaurant again , and ate our other meals next door at the Ao Sane beach bungalow where the cooking is very good and much cheaper than the hotel. ( along with quite a lot of the other guests ) This is such a pity because it lets down what could be a fantastic resort . The staff are very friendly and helpful , but whoever is in charge of the kitchen needs retraining !

"Needs better management"
02/02/16 Michael D Fayence, France
Our first visit here and we were delighted by the beautiful setting and facilities but the resort just lacks any life. The restaurant was very average and breakfast not geared to European tastes. The place seems uncared for; the grounds scruffy, just 5 loungers under the trees for 60 plus rooms. At night there was nobody to be seen anywhere. There is a shuttle to the village during the day (not entirely reliable) but at night you do need your own transport to get to the local restaurants. The rooms themselves are great (but no wifi) and value for money. Nai Harn beach down the road is stunning.

"Pure heaven"
01/28/16 AAWortho Quarteira, Portugal
Wow! We arrived very late at night. The taxi driver got a little lost on the way as it is right at the end of a lane which looks like a dead end. So when your driver gets to the Nai Harn hotel tell him to drive 'through' it and keep going right to the end of the road. Reception was great when we arrived and took us to room 410 which I believe to be the best room there. It's the end deluxe ocean view room so you only get one neighbour and to the other side it's just jungle and beautiful. We had the most amazing view of the beach even from our bed! Breakfast isn't very western. It's mostly Thai noodles etc and fruit and toast. We didn't eat breakfast there, instead we walked down to Nai harn beach each morning and bought fresh fruit from the market stalls there which was amazing and so cheap! The restaurants down there also do do European breakfasts and their Thai lunches and dinners are to die for! There's a bus 4 times a day to the beach but if you don't mind walking up and down hills it's only a km away and takes about 15 minutes. We enjoyed the walk to work all the beautiful food off!!! We only used the pool once as the beach was just too amazing but it's a lovely pool! The beach bar was never open which was disappointing but again we walked most days to the bigger beach. My only complaint about the room was the comfort of the bed. It was rock hard as were the pillows. I found spare duvets in the wardrobe and put them under the bottom sheet which helped. The bathroom was gorgeous. The shower big enough for two 😉 and the air con was a welcome relief after the walk from the beach! We would sit with our beers on our balcony and just listen to the waves and watch the boats in the bay every night. Totally amazing and will stay here again when we return to Phuket.

"Excellent location but totally dreadfull restaurant and dead resort"
01/23/16 tradis sweden
Beautiful rooms, almost private beach and a cosy poolarea. These are our highlights and servicelevel was also good. My daughter and I would easily have given the resort five stars if it wasnt for: 1. The restaurantfood is among the least inspiring I have eaten. Even the Thaifood was cooked really badly, lots of oil, burned ingredients, wrongful porpotions of ingredients and sometimes not even warm. The cook should try the restaurant at Ao Sane bungalows who cooks really good food. 2. The pricelevel does not correspond at all to the foodquality. The restaurant is usually dead at night and there is a reason for it. Everyone walks to Ao Sane Bungalow restaurant 5min away. 3. The resort was full when we where there but there is absolutely no one there at night. 4. Breakfast was bad with ok choices but presentation bad and felt cheap. You can ask for omelette or pancakes but no one tells you this. To summerize it: Management should really step up and make this resort to the great place it could be. Now it feels like a resort that has been left to slowly die. The staff is really great and also their service. Roome are really ok but it feels dead.

"Snorkeling in Phuket"
11/19/15 jimmylam11 hongkong
If you have to snorkel in Phuket without going to the outlying islands, Baan Krating Resort at Ao Sane Beach is probably your best choice. Its private beach, adjoining with Ao Sane Beach has plenty of corals and varieties of fishes very close to shore. In the afternoon of our arrival, the sky was cloudy and the water was not so clear. on the following morning , however, with high tide and sunshine the water was very much better and we enjoyed the snorkeling very much. There was only minimal current. We couldn't find big fishes though. We got a Beach Front Room which commands a splendid view of the bay and is only a few steps from the beach. However the resort is build on a steep slope and rooms high up would require a long climb from the beach. The room was very big but amenities were few. They didn't even provide a chair for the dressing table! The only restaurant has only a limited menu. Most guests dined outside in the nearby Nai Harn Beach, shuttles being provided by the resort. The resort is a quiet place. I saw a group of people practising yoga. The reception girl was nice-mannered but the young man handling wi-fi was rather rude.

"Simply Outstanding."
11/06/15 Satya G Hong kong
We went there with a open mind based on the mixed reviews and the 3 star official rating. It was probably the best risk we have taken as the property is simply outstanding. The furniture being 10 year old with its share of wear, tear and water damage is probably the worst part of the property. Everything else was outstanding. The hospitality, location, private beach, reef, food, staff were all 5 star. special thanks to JIP and THUN (restaurant), front desk staff, housekeeping and property manager for always going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure customer satisfaction. we will definitely be back:-)

"Far and Away...."
11/04/15 CaptainBasu Kolkata
The reviews should provide exactly what to expect out of this hotel. 1. Its away from the busy city of Phuket, and while you can be sure that transportation cost will go higher than expected here, its also away and secluded from the likes of noisy Patong beach. 2. To reach, you have to hire a cab which will take you about 400 to 500 baht (based on you bargaining ability) from Phuket bus station. This is located on Ao Sane beach but most cabs dont know Ao Sane beach. Tell them its close to Nai Harn. 3. The Ao sane beach is a perfectly seculded beach almost dedicated to this hotel, and snorkeling is safe and good here. Buy your own snorkeling gear (I bought it for as low as 300 Bht from local shop at Nai Harn beach) and jump in the water anytime. Move away from shore to prevent the sloshing of waves which spoils snorkeling. 4. You will find cottages in the jungle which leads to the beach. Try Room 202 / 201 which will be the least distance from the beach and with a beach view. 5. Wide spacious rooms with sprawling space. Nice front porch to sit and enjoy the view. Very accomodative and helpful people are some of the great features. 6. Breakfast is adequate. Not very lavish though. The restaurant, especialy the outdoor section, is magnificent. 7. Hotel has a service to /from Nai Harn beach (nearest big spot) every 2 hours 4 times a day, at 10, 12, 14 and 16. At all other times, u need to walk this distance or hire a cab/tuk tuk for 100-200 Baht.
