Good value family accommodation with both kitchen facilities and resort services
Baan Sawan Resort is a group of managed private homes located in a quiet residential area of Klong Haeng Village. Boasting spacious grounds and a big swimming pool (larger than many hotels!), it would be suitable for families or groups of friends who perhaps know Krabi already, or are planning on a relaxing break in the sun with minimal excursions.

There are nine houses in total (and nine more bungalows planned for the 2014 season), each of 90sqm. Because they were custom-built, the interior layout of each has been tailored to the individual owner’s needs. This means that some houses have 2 and some have 3 bedrooms, which in turn determines the size of the open plan living / dining / kitchen area which occupies the remaining space.

The furniture and decor of each house also varies, and though none are particularly stylish, all have stuck to a palate of dark wood, light tiled floors and bright accent colours. Each house has a large covered terrace for outdoor dining. Note: there is no television in any of the houses, so guests will need to bring their own iPad or laptop to watch movies etc. (wi-fi is free and unlimited in all houses).

As each house has different bedding available (twin, double, bunk and sofa beds are all possibilities!), when booking, please send your prefered sleeping arrangements so that we can determine the most suitable unit for you. All bedrooms are air conditioned.

Regardless of the number of bedrooms, all houses are priced for 4 occupants, with additional guests being charged a supplement. The maximum total of guests allowed in any one house is 8, though this will probably feel cramped – especially with only one bathroom!

The advantages of Baan Sawan over conventional hotels or private villa rental (other than the much lower cost) can be seen immediately on arrival: the atmosphere is laid back and convivial – each family has its own private house, but children can make friends and have others to play with in the pool. There is a reception area with a minimart, as well as a Thai massage pavilion and pool bar serving drinks and light meals. The staff can arrange tours and excursions as with any hotel; and there is a complimentary resort tuk-tuk service for those who wish to shop or dine on Ao Nang beach front.

Baan Sawan is one of the few all-round family holiday destinations on mainland Krabi (another would be the nearby Nadivana Serviced Apartments): though relatively far from the beach, it offers a relaxing (because of both the space and the on-site services) and above all affordable holiday for those who have already spent a lot of money on flights.

Hotel Location

Baan Sawan Resort is located in a quiet area of Klong Haeng Village, around 3km from beach. The immediate area is residential; the nearest shops (other than the on-site minimart) are around 800m away. The resort provides a free shuttle to go here, or down to the main beach areas of Nopparat Tara and Ao Nang. Note: the Google satellite images were recorded before the hotel construction so the buildings are not visible on the map. View Baan Sawan Resort in a larger map.
