Ao nang is a well know tourist destination and easily reached by plane, bus and ferry which arrive in the main town of Krabi. It is from Ao nang you can catch a boat over to Tonsai bay.
We are situated 5 minutes’ walk from Tonsai Beach, at the base Tonsai cliff, which is very popular amongst avid rock climbers! To reach us will require a Long tail boat of which there are many on the Ao nang beach. The boat ticket office is just on the corner of the main beach road in Ao nang and you just ask to go to Tonsai. If you find yourself in neighbouring Railay then you can reach us by jungle path, which can be challenging for some and an adventure for others. We do not recommend this with lots of luggage as it can be rocky terrain and take about 15 minutes.
Tonsai bay is a small bustling community and Chill Out Bar is well known, so once you arrive finding us is not difficult. Our resort offers you a restaurant which offers Thai and international cuisine, three food stalls with local dishes, one small mini market, a really lovely coffee bar with handmade coffee and a reggae bar where you can while away your evening listening to our house DJ and Live music. We also have a fire show which we receive very good reviews for. Elsewhere you can find restaurants, little shops and bars so although small there really is all you need.
Please understand that during low season it can be very quiet here but there will always be someone to chat with in our friendly bar area. (June to September).
Tonsai is fabulous for many reasons; it offers peace and tranquillity to chill out but also offers the perfect place to climb. Whether you are an expert, beginner or just trying it out, the unusual rock formations have something for everyone and have caused Tonsai’s popularity to increase greatly amongst climbers in recent years. It is also home to the Annual Rock and Fire competition which is a site to behold. There are many reputable rock climbing shops in both Tonsai and Railay where all equipment can be hired along with instruction if so wished. Rock Climbing isn’t the only thing Tonsai has to offer, Diving is also a huge part of life here with many great dive spots, the nearest being half an hour and the furthest two hours. At these spots you can expect to see anything from a sea horse to a turtle and even a harmless black tip reef shark! We are also the gateway to other stunning islands just a stone’s throw across the water and again there are many tour agencies who can offer boat trips and snorkelling.
What makes our place so unique you may ask? Well the answer is quite simple; we are unique because everything is built with love. Every building you sleep in, table you drink at and places you sit have been built by our hands, under instruction of my husband who is a skilled artist. The materials we have used are natural products of Mother Nature and we used them to the best of our ability.
From Krabi airport you can take a public airport bus or Taxi to "Aonang beach" (approx. 30-40 min) and from there take a Long tail boat (10-15 min) to Tonsai beach. Our Bungalows are on the hill side (main road), 5 minutes’ walk from the beach.
In the Day time you will pay 100 Baht for the long tail boat (one person, one way) but you will pay more after 6:00 pm due to fewer customers so for this reason I recommend you to come during the day.
In the low season (June to September) / rainy season is often windy in Southern Thailand. You can reach Tonsai Beach only with a long tail boat but sometimes if it's really bad weather, windy with big waves, the boats don't drive to Tonsai for safety reasons but they will drop you off on Railay beach. You can walk from Railay to Tonsai however I would like to advise that for some it is not the easiest of walks. To reach us requires a little hike up a jungle path or alternatively you can walk over a small hill during low tide but this can be quite rocky. If you love trying something new and like a bit adventure then this could be a fun challenge for you but I do not recommend this for anyone who has a lot of luggage especially suitcases. If in real doubt then sadly I would recommend you to cancel the booking and stay on mainland.
Normally you will pay 100 Baht for the Long tail boat and one boat will take approximately 7-10 people for one way. Sometimes in low season there are not enough people who want to take the boat and this means the boat man will charge you more, possibly 200 or 300 baht for one way!!
House rulesOur Thai style bungalows are very simplistic and each have their own shower and toilet. There are two single beds, a fan and mosquito net all that is needed. Each bungalow has a small private balcony where you can hang your hammock and enjoy listening to the sounds of nature whilst taking in the beautiful view.
Please understand that because our bungalows are in the jungle we recommend you to bring mosquito spray and a small flashlight just in case.
(Tips : The mosquitoes come at sunrise and sunset)
Like a properties on Tonsai we produce power by ourselves with a generator and therefore to help with the environment the electric is on from 8am to 12pm and again about 6 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. We thank you for your understanding on this.

Reviews of this property
Es war alles genau so wir ich es mir vorgestellt hatte. Die Hütten waren sehr einfach gehalten, erfüllten aber ihren Zweck, denn wer dort Urlaub macht, hält sich nicht viel in der Hütte auf! Alle waren sehr freundlich.
Ich würde jederzeit wieder dort hin reisen.
Einfache aber top solide Unterkunft ! Mit extrem cooler Bar und freundlichem Personal, coole Leute... Idealer Platz um zu chillen und alles hinter sich zu lassen. tonsai Beach liegt nur ein Spaziergang entfernt von Railey West und Pharang Beach die die schönsten in der Gegend von Krabi sind!!! Unbedingt besuchen!
