"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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"For those who appreciate nature!"
This is a special place,very well manage with reasonably good staff.the position is great away from the noise of Patong.It is at the end of the road almost lost in the jungle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Baan Krating is in a lovely location, its quite far from everything else in Phuket but if you are looking for somewhere quiet and on teh beach to stay than this is perfect. The room was roomy and clean over looking the ocean. The only bad thing I can say, that it was horrible to see other guests littering the beach with ciggarettes and rubbish as well […] as taking marine life out of the ocean- starfish and hermit crabs and back to there rooms as momento's. Staff simply watched on- surely they would want to protect their surroundings. I just think that staff should do more to stop this before the beach and surround are ruined.

"Excellent if you want peace and quiet"
It was perfect for what we wanted. Totally remote and away from the loud chaos of Patong, Kata beaches. But it is very far from anything. We rented a motorbike and went to the main strip in Naiharn beach. Most tours pick you up from your hotel anyway but may charge extra due to the distance. Taxi to n any places will cost around 800 baht. We chose the […] deluxe villa right near the water. it was an amazing view. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
great location, in a secluded spot, away from all the over development of Phuket. It has its own private beach/bay which is a real bonus. The food however is not great, one thing I don't understand about these places is that they serve cordials rather than fresh juices, even though the fruits are so easy to get. Anyway great location, clean room, at […] best average food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the money"
Good location off the beaten path (almost 1k bhat from Phuket Airport). Pretty helpful setting up activities I wanted to do in Phuket, and their bikes are in good condition should you want to rent a scooter. HOWEVER Customer service is terrible. They overcharge for amenities which are NOT worth it. Their staff takes 3 or 4x as long at the restaurant […] to bring you your order. I ordered a chicken sandwich, and took it apart, it was 3 slices of bread, half a piece of lettuce ripped up, and 1/3 of a piece of a chicken breast. They charged western prices for this, and ALSO charged a % service charge ontop of this. I asked for Mayo, and 20 mins later they came back with mayo squeezed from a Kebab dispenser and charged me for it. I asked for water and it was left on the counter for 10 mins. Eventually I got up and grabbed it myself, and they came over and insisted I pay a service charge. I asked if it was a "service charge" or just a "tax" as i didn't really get served, though I did not contest paying more. She got huffy, walked off, grabbed a menu, threw it down on my table and pointed to the small print about the service charge. For a few bhat I wasn't concerned, but the way they go about doing business is AWFUL. There was another resort just outside the entrance I ended up frequenting for meals and to snorkel and I was DEF more pleased with it (though I do not represent this other resort, and am not going to put its name) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is my very favourite hotel.if you are seeking a quite beautiful and authentic place then this is the hotel for you.the hotel is very well managed and the staff are helpful and will go out of their way to ensure that you have a good stay.I was particulary impressed with the hotel manager Mr Jirapatchr who was listen to my concern about having a […] quite room and took imidiate action ensuring that our stay is peaceful and very plesant.when we expressed a desire to visit their sister hotel in Kao lak ,the manger arrange for us to go with mr van who was very helpful and entertaining.this place is truly special and it is lucky for us that it was managed by special staff who are able to appreciate the magis surrounding..i just wish that management take action to make the restaurent more popular by introducing daily "Plat du jour" with prices attractive to the guests.The restaurent position is magnificant and it is a shame that it is not used fully.i also think that reducing internet rates charged by the hotel will encourrage more guests to use it ,therefore increasing revenue.In conclusion it is a hotel that i would love to return to .

"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 utbudGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Situé au fond d une impasse dans les hauteurs vous pouvez rejoindre le centre à pied 15min ou navette de l'hôtel (5 fois / jour) Très bon accueil, chambres propres, cependant l hôtel à besoin d'être rénové les chambre deviennent vétustes et serviettes à renouveler (standing attendu pour […] le rapport qualité/prix). petit déjeuner bon et varié présenté en buffet.

"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... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel needs desperite renovoation! The stone bungalows are nice but lots of work need to be done, same for the garden. Also lot of trash in garden.Beach is nothng special at all, small, old platic chairs. Same for the pool. Don't go, you can get a lot betterGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"It's a good relax resort"
Room is big and clean but they don't apply the hygiene products, small towels everyday also the big towels were dilapidated.But one day I got two bright and white ones. I wonder if it's due to their tradition,they only swept the floor, no mopping the floors? I stayed there six nights and the people working there were friendly especially the reception […] .Here I thank you them. Over all it's a good and quiet resort and I enjoyed my holiday by staying there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel consigliato per una notte di relax"
Abbiamo soggiornato una notte a fine vacanza, dopo aver già visitato il resto di Phuket (Agosto 2012). Sapevamo che l'hotel era isolato e lontano da tutto. Ottimo per 1/2 giorni di relax, ma sconsigliato per soggiorni più lunghi. Abbiamo cenato al ristorante: prezzi, ovviamente, più alti della media (in Thailandia), cibo discreto/buono.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Mixed impression but mostly good"
02/06/15 artistina81 Oslo, Norway
We had the cheapest of the pavilion rooms and it was great. Glass walls, great hot shower, great large soft bed with big pillows, silent aircon, and no bugs in the room! Not much bugs or creatures around actually even though its in the "jungle". The beach is small but great, not many people there, and its fantastic for snorkeling! The fish is right there at your feet. Also good massage for 400 baht on the beach. The pool is nice and no people so you have space. Only downside is that the service isn't great, especially in the restaurant, and the food we tried was ok at best. You have to walk 10-15 minutes to other restaurants, we liked the one by the yacht club, the others in the area looked A bit shady. Taxies dont find the place or charge extra because of bumpy road. Resort should be helpful with pick up from main Nai Harn beach or something. They do have free shuttle to nai harn during daytime, but we went there to eat at night and would then walk in the dark. All in all the resort is quiet and nice except for the food and some of the services. Would recommand to pay 500 baht more A night for A pavilion room, its worth it. Breakfast was ok but not great, roomcleaning was good. Be prepared that most staff dont speak english, but there is one lady at reception who does..

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, but compared to the prices they charge, there are many options in Phuket that are better. Rooms: Clean and spacy, but the exterior looked quite run down. Could use an upgrade. Staff: Average polite staff. Way to bad English for a hotel of this size and standard. The hotel area: The hotel has a small private beach with a beach bar, this place holds a lot of potential, but is not utilized. There is not any tables and chairs by the beach bar so one could take a lunch in the shade. Small things like this add up to the hotel not reaching its potential. Location: Secluded, romantic area, not to far away from a more populated beach.
"Jungle luxury "
01/15/15 HannahJake D Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom
Me and my boyfriend stayed here for two nights! It was impossible to find .. We had a taxi driver that had lived in Phuket all his life and he had never heard or seen this place! Eventually we got there and we were upgraded (yay)! The room was beautiful .. All glass doors (gold fish bowl). The bath room was beautiful as well! Had dinner there .. Food was good but portions were very very small (child size)! The only down fall was you had to buy the wifi which wasn't very good either! Would highly recommend this hotel!!
"Relaxing Escape From Busy Patong"
01/15/15 Melissa N Brisbane, Australia
After spending the first four days of our holiday staying in busy Patong, moving to Baan Krating was a relaxing escape. The resort is in a wonderful location. It feels isolated but really it is only a short drive to near by Nai Harn beach. We spent our time swimming at the small private beach (shared with Baan Krating guests and guests from the Aoe Sane bungalows next door), visiting Nai Harn beach and the surrounding area (using the free shuttle service provided by the resort) and also sitting on our balcony listening to the waves (we were in the beach front pavilion room). Although I very much enjoyed staying here I am giving it a four star rating simply because of a few small issues. Firstly, although the room was large, spacious, well decorated and the bathroom quite large, unfortunately the shower had mould growing in the grouting and although the toilet seat was clean, it was old and stained and needed replacing. Secondly, although the breakfast buffet had a large variety of food to choose from, the food was often cold because the one flame underneath each serving area wasn't able to maintain a high enough heat. To combat this we simply chose food from sections that had been recently refilled. Also if you asked for fried eggs they were able to make those for you to order. Even though there were two issues during our stay that did not make this review five star, this resort is marketed as a three star hotel and for a three star hotel this place was pretty amazing! If we ever return to Thailand I would not hesitate to stay here again. Also if you are staying in the Nai Harn area and are looking for places to eat out, The Coconut Cafe with a view of the beach served delicious cheap food. Also the M.M Pizzeria served amazing authentic Italian food and is run by an Italian couple. It is packed every night with people so if you don't want to wait for a seat you should get there before 7pm.
"Nice but not as luxurious as it wants to be "
12/31/14 Susslan Gothenburg, Sweden
The hotel is located a bit off which adds to its jungle feeling and it's calmness. Our room was beautiful and clean but the outside of the house was quite run down and it was quite far to the beach. The bungalows were nice as well but don't seem to have been renovated as recently and the rooms were a bit smaller. They have much shorter way to the beach and you can really hear the waves at nights. The restaurant has good food but is somewhat expensive, also the there are not many Thai dishes to choose from, which is a shame. One other thing that was a bit disturbing was that they don't have any real fresh fruit juices, which is something that at least I want to have on my tropical vacation. Breakfast is buffet style and has the usual- eggs, toast, vegetables, fruit and some hot dishes. HOWEVER you can ask the nice staff if you want to have some other type of eggs and also ask for croissants. The staff were super sweet and they made our stay worth while. Also the snorkelling was nice. There is not much corals but a lot of reef fish!
"Jungle beach resort"
12/09/14 Dominique Z
Very relaxing and right on the beach in the jungle. Tricky to get to but that makes it feel exclusive and quiet. Hired a scooter as it is too far to walk to other beaches and restaurants. We stayed in thatched huts but there is other options if that isn't your style.
08/13/14 ganlayer3 Greece
Actually i visited this resort at the early May of 2011. Do this is a late report. What can i say? The resort is situated at a unique locatio.It is really hidden. You have to pass through a private road to get to hotel..The resort is located among a luss plantation, reminds a mangrove forest. Bungalows are clean, well maintained and spacius. Hotel grounds superb. The resort atmosphere leeds you to a fairy tail of a hidden world. The beach is great ( for phuket) thgouth its small..The pool was small but really attractive. Drawbacks: The beach bar in May was deserted. The sea was rough. The visibility really limited. No sun beds directly on the sand.
"Nature Lovers' paradise"
04/08/14 juliengable Phuket, Thailand
If you are looking for a nice and quiet place away from the buzzing tuktuks and motocyle taxis than Baan Krating is the place. The private beach makes it even more exclusive. We had a serious good time here with amazing friendly staff
"Not in harmony with the pictures, not clean, far away from everything"
04/04/14 Andi1986 Budapest, Hungary
We spent 3 nights in one of the bungalows and i can confirm they are not in harmony with the pictures at all- there are many insects and lizzards (not a joke) in the rooms (and also on the bathroom), the furniture is very old. There is 1 restaurant only and they make an advantage that this is the only restaurant there so the prices are quite high but the kitchen is not the best. They have a so called private beach which does not belong to the hotel and therefore you must pay 100 Baht for a sunbed.. but the beach is really beautiful and the best for snorkeling. The staff english knowledge must be improved, only the lady at the reception was speaking english, but she was very friendly, professional and helpful. Anyway, i would not recomment that hotel because for that prices there are so many better one to stay in Phuket.
"awesome secluded getaway !!"
01/06/14 Eddie J Cairns, Australia
this place will blow you away !! Tucked away in the tropical jungle but on the waterfront with elevated rooms on the hill overlooking the ocean and bay into Nai harn beach. The rooms are luxuriously appointed with balconies and ocean views. The restaurant is superb with a awesome buffet breakfast daily and perfect thai food for other sittings. You can sit out on the deck overlooking the pool, tropical jungle and hillside down to the waters edge where you will find a beautiful sand beach with crystal clear water. You can hire a motor scooter from reception and go touring Nai harn and the lookout (especially good at sunset time for its spectacular vistas and local entertainment, ... see my review on Nai Harn beach), or to nearby Rawai beach. This resort will not dissapoint, i would go back there anytime !! I hope my review has been of some help to you? cheers and happy holidays !!
