Loved our few days here, you are on the edge of the jungle (at times you feel like you're in it!) You are surrounded by tropical wildness and towering limestone cliffs. Accommodation and food is simple. There is a glorious natural pool to cool you down. Best views of anywhere we stayed. Plenty of wildlife on site, as long as...

The resort located just next to the huge limestone cliffs that providing incredible views from everywhere. Son, Joop, baby Captain and their family are operating the resort and will take care of all your needs with a big smile. The resort cabins are simple but well cleaned, the sheets smell good and the view is amazing. Birds, lizards, snakes and...

A wonderfull place to spend a couple of days. The view from the bungalows scatered along the hillside were breathtaking. Our bungalow was pretty basic, but it was clean and had a nice balcony to kick back and enjoy the surroundings. Mr Son is a very charming man who will see to your every need. You will find good food...

Me and a friend stayed here for a few nights in January. When we arrived it was raining and they gave us some umbrellas to walk to our room. We had the best time the family made us feel so welcome and the surroundings are beautiful. The food was also great. I would go back again hopefully for longer next...

I stayed at Phanom Bencha Mountain Resort for six days while taking part in a field trip. The bungalow was basic but with a good bed, clean bathroom and a view from the verandah to die for. The owners Son and Joop were warm and caring and treated me like family. The restaurant served great Thai food and the Western...

The view is unreal. Definitely do not stay here if you are not fit because it is a hike up and down the mountain to the little cabins. I am glad I stayed here because I love nature but don't like to buy camping equipment so this was in between. Even though I had a hard time sleeping because the...

Hi Jillian! Thank you for your positive review! Sorry, I didn't get a chance to meet you, I've been out with a back injury for three weeks. Staying at our resort is a bit like camping with a roof over your head! You did come during one of the hottest times of the year (the hottest), so I understand why...

Thsi is the way Krabi should be seen, and the way it used to be before mass tourism hit Ao Nang. If tranquility, and a place of outstanding natural beauty is what you prize rather than proximity to a crowded beach and noisy nightlife, I doubt you could do btetter. Very Highly reccommended!

This was my favourite place that we stayed in Thailand. Nestled in the jungle, this resort is a magical retreat. The grounds are meticulous with a number of private bungalows spread out, offering privacy and serenity. For those who are heat-challenged, there is even a unit that offers air conditioning. This is a unique experience for those who will appreciate...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have a wilderness resort that puts you hand-in-hand with nature just outside Krabi Town in Krabi province. We have bungalows with fans and our grounds are naturally landscaped with beautiful grass areas and pools of water, hiking treks through the jungle and more! Most visitors come to Phanom Bencha Mountain Resort for some peace and relaxation. Some come to meditate. Some come to write books or have a nice time with the family without outside distractions. We have nature and wildlife walks at night available - just ask! Our food is cooked on-site and we have had excellent reviews in this area! No need to leave the resort, but you can go shopping in town easily if you desire! Best Regards! Son R. ... more   less

“The lodges closest to the restaurant are best if you are not too agile. Otherwise the best views are further up the hillside and you will need a torch at night.”

“If you don't want to climb too much, choose a bungalow closer to restaurant and reception. But if you need quiet and privacy - choose a bungalow closer to the swimming pool (which is up, in the hill).”
