We stayed 2 nights here and we can only recommend to stay here. I travel Asia now for years, but this warm welcome by Swing, Frank and Sophie just blew me away. Its like an lil Oasis and we directly fall in love. Honestly i can absolutely not understand how you cant love happinez lodge. Lovely lil bungalows, totally clean (up to asian standard this was really high level) and the 3 who manage it are really so nice and helped us about everything. (Organizing trip to the island, bring us to bank, to the pier) Swing the Lady at the rezeption is like an lil angel and her smile is infecting immediately.! Such a good mood the whole day long. Honestly when we sit there and talked till late at night and had a couple of beers, laughed, we totally forgot that we are still in Ranong, feels like we was already on an Island. At the point: if youre a backpacker who likes to stay authentic and wanna feel lime an welcomed guest you have to stay at Happinez . Because they will make you happy 😍
And to the guy that just left the rating before me: i can absolutely not understand how you can make that unfair rating. Sry the rooms a cosy, pretty, the dont smell, the water was running(hot and cold), the bed was totally comfortable, the food cooked by swing was incredible and the whole stay was just a pleasure. I really dont know whats your problem or with what wrong feet you was woke up, but luckily youre the only one who leaved an bad rating.! It was not fair and realistic. Think youre better go to 5 star resorts in Phuket or samui. Sry makes me angry to read such an stupid rating after an lovely stay which maked us smile all day long and gave me back hope for thailand. Feel like i meet thailand years ago and im still impressed.
