We stayed for 3 days, and came back for another 7 nights!
Gary and Bua have created a paradise. This is a very special place indeed.
We were here in Dec 2013 for our honeymoon and my 40th Birthday so a double celebration! I'm so glad we found this wonderful place.
The rooms as other reviewers have said are beautiful and comfortably appointed. Boutique style I would call it.We had air con, our own patio, it was very private and the sounds at night of the frogs was sublime. So relaxing!
The food?...OMG! Amazing. When the locals come here to also eat, you know this is THE place to be. We ate here every night that we stayed and cannot fault the stunning food served by the kitchen. Thank you so much! (do try Buas' Cheesecake...yum yum! First class, we can see why it sells out as soon as she bakes it!)
The atmosphere? ...Gary and Bua you have done yourselves proud. This place is magical. Picture a pub in a jungle...sums it up for us.
My husband didn't want to move from the bar...a challenge indeed! And when we did go out venturing in the day we couldn't wait to come "home" in the evening and that's how we honestly felt...like it was a "home from home". Again a reflection on Gary, Bua and their team. So welcoming.
Although this is not a nightlife hotspot, (but should you wish its only a short taxi ride to either Krabi or Ao Nang) For us this was a positive as we wanted total relaxation, and the Frog and Catfish gave us this.
The location is good for the sightseeing, and given the locals knowledge we were able to be directed to the best places to go. Gary and At organised transport for us, nothing was too much trouble.
For a couple of our days we just wanted to veg out at the Frog and Catfish. With their own pool a cooling dip was always available and the cocktails? At certaily does do a mean Mai Tai!
A previous reviewer said they cried when they left. I did the same, this place stays in your heart. It's magical, and the people here really made our honeymoon for us.
We will definately be going back for an anniversary!
Watch out Gary..Keith will be returning with equally bad jokes next time! We will give you warning so that you can take the valium before we arrive!
(Oh, and if you go and are from the UK...take some Chocolate with you for At!)
This place is special...keep it a secret!
