The sister property of (the very different) City Hotel in Krabi Town, Mountain View Resort is set in a sprawling but well-tended garden behind Ton Sai Beach.
Bungalows are spartan but spotless: everything inside is white, or pale pistachio green, with tartan trimmings, an odd deco-choice, but one that works well in the otherwise bare rooms. Other than a hanging space for your clothes and a shelf with a mirror, there is no other furniture present apart from the beds themselves. This means no TV, no fridge, no table, which usually come as standard in this price category.
In addition, electricity is provided only between the hours of 5pm and 10am, i.e. your a/c will not be available during the hottest part of the day! During May – October a/c is not available at all.
Air con rooms are considerably larger than the fan rooms and are located up on the hillside, with beautiful cliff views. They are available with twin beds only (can be pushed together to make a double); fan rooms are available with either twin beds or double beds. 10 newer fan bungalows were constructed in 2007, in a similar style, and are being sold at a higher rate, though facilities are the same.
The overall surroundings of Mountain View are very pleasant, a far cry from the rundown shacks lining much of the same pathway, although it’s a long (10 minute) walk to the nice sandy end of the beach towards Railay.
