“A quiet oasis away from the buzz of Krabi main streets”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

A basic but extremely comfortable guest bungalow, well worth a few days in Krabi. It's located an easy 15 minutes walk from the beach, so well away from the noisy main streets.

Our little bungalow sits in the garden area, amongst several others. The bed is the most comfortable and is changed daily along with towels. No AC in our room but a fan has been adequate.

The owner (GUI) and his wife do everything they can to assist and the food provided is very good.

Note: there is no pool here, but some local hotels allow non-residents to use on a chargeable basis. 200 - 300 baht.

We would happily recommend this lovely quiet residence for a few days to a week. I think beyond that a pool is needed.

Room Tip: Any bungalow will do, they sit in the garden area and the location overall is quiet.

We loved it here, enjoyed the games of 'boule', tucked in behind the resorts and hassel lies this fantastic little place. Such a welcoming couple, easy going, great food and only a short walk to the rest of Ao Nang. We found our inspiration here and thank Guy and Vasana for it all. We will definitely be making this a stop off point for our future trips. Greetings to you both, from the 'big love', Nadia and Paul.

Me and my wife stayed for 3 nights. The place are very good for honeymooners and couples. The host are very helpful and friendly and the surrounding are peaceful and calm however it is quite far from the beach but not to worry you can rent a motorbike or bicycle to move around the area. We are very grateful for the host Vasana who arranged the transport to pick us at 5.30 am local time to Krabi airport. We really enjoy our vacation and it feels very close to the nature.

I was really looking forward to our stay in Vasana Bungalows because of all the really nice reviews earlier. We knew what we could expect and the room was okay. There was not much water coming out of the shower and when you took a shower, the floor was still wet the next morning. The mosquito net could use a replacement because when there was a hole in it, they just made a knot around it.. A lot of knots in ours.. I didn't really care about all of this actually. The not so friendly owner is an other story. We had a short talk about the way to the airport because we had to catch a plane the next day. Apparently he understood that we we're going to take his transport but we just asked some information and with breakfast the next day we told him that we we're going to take the bus at the place were we rented our motorbike. When he understood that we were not going to take his transport he became quite angry and the discussion ended with 'If you want to pay more that's fine'. I think he just felt insulted that we didn't take his transport but we just had to bring back our motorbike. With the payment at the end of the stay he also reacted quite rude with a sarcastic 'oh thank you' when I told him he could keep the change, okay it wasn't much, but still..

Me and my partner, were so much looking forward to our stay in Vasana Bungalows for 5 night, but few minutes after our arrival, we were rather worried than enjoying. We knew that we wanted something simple and close to the nature and easygoing; The problem with Vasana Bungalows, that it was additionally to this, NOT clean and NOT really friendly owner, with no care about the quality and the comfort of guests. I do not understand how it is possible to offer an accommodation which was not cleaned for at least a whole season or maybe a year!!! The ventilator was super dirty; even oily!!! the mosquito net above the bed was terrible!!! the toilet the same!! the shower head was so dirty that no water was going out anymore; we had to remove it to get some water out of the tube. the Garden around bungalows were not taking care of. All the things I mentioned does not need lots of money, but rather an effort and to me the owner looked like he does not care at all. It is written everywhere that they have an air-conditioning system and it is NOT TRUE. When I asked about this, Mr Guy said that "Open the windows and you will have the natural air-conditioning you are asking about". The problem that I can not even open the window, since that he did not bother to put any kind of a Mosquito Window Net!!!!! When we in the same first night informed him that we will most probably leave in the next day and we are of course ready to pay any kind of costs related, he got angry and turned into a not polite person. The next morning when we were actually leaving and after accepting to pay for 2 night even though we didn't have too, he was still almost yelling at us in front of other guests, who were having their breakfast. His wife "Vasana" was trying to help us a bit, but he end up yelling at her as well. ONLY 1 thing he cares to do; playing Pétanque; But this is not enough. More important is to offer guests the basic comfort and then think about playing Pétanque ...... I am not going to Thailand to play Pétanque!!!! UNLESS he would put an effort to clean the place and add just few things in rooms, like mosquitoes net to all windows, this place will remain a trap for guests.

Room Tip: Remember that the place is not clean and accept of a poor ventilator, you can not open any windows b...

We stayed at vasana/Chaba bungalows for 3 nights! Our room was great and vasana and guy were absolutely lovely! Not far from the Main Street and beach around 10 minute walk - if not walking vasana can arrange a tuk tuk to pick you up for 30 baht pp! For friendliness and quality I would 100% recommend it here! We was offered another room in case the one we was in was to noisy which was great customer service but we was happy with the room we had! I can't fault the stay one bit! The only fault I have is not staying longer!

Location and surroundings are great. In a beautiful garden, against a stunning mountain wall, away from the noise but within 5 minutes biking from the action and beach. There's not a better place to stay at Ao Nang.

We were planning to stay for one night to move on to Railay, but decided to stay one more night. The rooms are basic but romantic. Well kept rooms and chill atmosphere. The owners Guy and Savana are friendly, serving great breakfast and giving you a relaxed time when you come back from a long day outside.

The only downside was the mosque, starting to call for the pray at 5am in the morgning, it will wake you up. But this isn't the fault of the hotel.
