“Basic beach front rooms, awesome food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Great basic rooms right on the beach. The food is fantastic.. I still crave the coconut curry and cashew stir fry :) Spent a few nights here and would recommend. Do not take the bus they recommend back to Bangkok though... The ride took an extra 5 hours then it should have as they drove us to random spots and made us wait for unknown reasons ... Then dropped us in khao sahn road at 4am..book your own.

This was one of the last places we stayed on our holiday. We were here for three nights and it was a good time to wind down and really relax. We took walks into town and around their private beach, as well as other nearby beaches. They had hammocks on the beach which provided an optimum place to read and chill out for the day. Also the restaurant was really good and normal prices for Thailand with a meal 60 - 100 baht. ($2 - 4 CAD). The only thing I wouldn't recommend is using the shuttle company that they suggest. We booked it (500 baht each) to Phuket, and had the worst transport experience of our lives. (All other times during the trip were excellent and cost much less). The bungalows were small and clean, we didn't go for air-conditioning and just had a fan which was totally sufficient. I would return here again.

Room Tip: Do not book with the shuttle company the hotel offers as the easiest. The trip took over four hours...

We spent there 5 days although we wanted only 3 ;) We had a bungalow double room with bathroom and fan. Rooms are comfortable, clean, and it's really close to thea sea. It's calm, because it's far away from the city (we liked that) and the stuff is great - they're helpful with everything, you can rent a scooter, take a taxi, take a boat, organize a trip. Great atmosphere and food - the best Thai curry in whole Thailand.

If you dont mind being out in the boondocks, this is a good budget bungalow right on a little beach. For the price of a basic bungalow, you can rent a scooter and still pay less than in Ao Nang. Very big tidal swing changes beach to moonscape at low tide. Just wait 6 hrs for beach to return!

Room Tip: Get one near beach.

The Pine Bungalow is quite far away from anywhere the tourists flock. The host is a kind lady who will take you to the main spots in Krabi for a reasonable fare in her own car, if the taxi guy is out somewhere.

The place is amazing, overlooking a small beach that is pretty much private for the guests. At low tide, however, the rocks and shells make it a bit tough to lounge around. In the nights, the insects of the sea come out, making it a bit tough to swim. The daytime, however, is amazing. With the sun shining down, hammocks under the trees are sought after.

The rooms are very basic and the prices justify that. Food is as close to home-made Thai as you can get and is very reasonably priced. Beer is also available at a good price.

Overall, the Pine Bungalow is a lovely little beach house if you want to get away from all the maddening crowds of Krabi.

Having been searching for somewhere to stay in Krabi, we came across an advertisement for Pine Bungalows and decided to try it. How glad we are that we did - it was right on the beach and with the most fantastic views. Ask for a room with air conditioning as some only have fans. At low tide it is impossible to swim as the water recedes a long way, exposing all the rocks. However, the rock pools are worth exploring! The room was basic but adequate with a huge "wet room" bathroom. It would have been nice to have a kettle in the room so we could make our own coffee instead of having to wait until 7.30 when the restaurant opened, but that is a minor thing, far outweighed by the friendly staff, the great food, and the relaxing atmosphere. Twenty minutes by car from Krabi means that it is peaceful with no loud crowds. Room are not serviced unless you request that they be done, but this is reflected in the price. It is not a luxurious resort by any means, but the peace of the place is great.

Room Tip: Remember to ask for air conditioning. Some rooms have only fans.

We were staying at Pine Bungalow in March 2014 and had a nice time. Very nice silent place with own beach hiden from the noise of the city. The stuff is very friendly as well. Out of Ao Nang, aiport transfer is recomended.
