Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here for 3 nights in Feb 2024. Lovely resort and amazing staff. The pool is one of the nicest I have ever seen at a resort. Well kept resort, clean rooms and also very quiet. Breakfast is also not too bad although some other people we met at the resort said that it lacks variety, but we thought it was good quality food. One of the potential drawbacks we thought would be that it is about a mile from Ao Nang beach, but that was no issue. Hotel has hourly shuttle buses going to the beach and reception can also arrange tuk tuks which will show up in 5 minutes. Highly recommend for people to stay there.

Dear Khun 642andreash, Greetings from Ban Sainai Resort Aonang, and thank you for your kind stay and review shared. It is such a delightful occasion to hear that you enjoyed the three nights stay this month. Great to hear that you found the pool, the amazing staff team, the well kept and clean resort and room, the peaceful getaway, the good quality breakfast and etc. However, the distance to nearby Aonang beach that is approx. 1.6 kms away or 1 km away from Aonang downtown or 300 meters from the main road may create some inconveniences but because of this, we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed with our resort's great privacy and great peace a lot. Therefore, we had provided the complimentary shuttle from day to evening time by schedule. Great to hear that you had found this more convenient. It is always such grateful and honored chance to have you as our valued guests. And we can't wait for next chance to being at your service again soon. Experience & Unwind; Enjoy Your Peaceful Holiday. With warm regards, Ms. Hathaitat Siltrakul & Ban Sainai Team

This is an excellent resort and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay again. We stayed in a pond view cottage and it was perfect in every way. Super clean, modern and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully maintained & quiet. The pool is amazing, probably the best pool I’ve ever been in to be honest. The staff in the resort are all friendly and helpful & the food is good. My only minor complaint is the sun loungers are a little uncomfortable to spend a few hours in. Adjustable ones would be better to allow fully sitting up and lying down but as I say it’s a minor complaint & still enjoyed relaxing at the pool.

Fabulous hotel. An oasis of calm on edge of busy Ao nang. We loved our stay here, all staff we met were so friendly and helpful, swimming pool and garden setting beautiful, birds, butterflies, tropical flowers all very well maintained Free shuttle into Ao nang a number of times a day was great as it wouldn’t have been walkable. There were local eating places within 10 mins walk of hotel - all the ones we tried very good. The hotel is alcohol free but that was fine for us, local supermarkets nearby and a full sized fridge in room for cooling your own drinks. Our room was huge and very comfortable only issue was that the shower power was low/intermittent which was rather annoying as everything else was perfect Breakfast was gorgeous and the restaurant set next to a lake, such a fabulous setting. Would definitely recommend this hotel just a shame about shower pressure.

I’m writing this review whilst we wait for our transfer to Railay. We are very sad to leave this beautiful resort. We have had such a lovely time and will definitely return when we are in the area again. The hotel grounds are absolutely breathtaking. The view from the pool just doesn’t feel real it’s so beautiful. Grounds are constantly maintained to a high standard. The pool area is clean and peaceful with a lovely bar that serves a wide range of drinks and food which we used alot. The room (we had a coconut cottage) is clean and comfortable with a beautiful veranda and bathroom. We were in room 1101 which is really close to the pool, but the way they are set out you wouldn’t know. It was very private and quiet. The breakfast is lovely set by the large pond where you can see fish and the large lizards swimming. There is a buffet but also a menu that you can order pancakes eggs and roti that are freshly made. Several juices and coffee including lattes Available also. All the staff are so friendly and helpful through our stay. Ao Nang is largely very busy which isn’t really for us. But this hotel feels like you are a million miles away from all that, yet a 15-20 minute walk or shuttle ride away from the beach if you want to venture in. We tended to get a tuk tuk back which we generally settled at a price of 120 thb. There are several nice places to eat on the road nearby (pizza, Thai and Indian) if you don’t want to go too far. There’s is also a laundry service just down the road for 40thb per kilo that had ours back by 8pm the same day. All in all I would absolutely recommend this resort to anyone looking for a peaceful and tranquil stay in a beautiful part of Ao Nang

Stayed for a week over New Year with children 19 & 16 so shared an adjoining family suite. Room was well equipped and big with a great tub in the bathroom. Such a peaceful location with beauty around every corner. Breakfast was excellent and again really tranquil. Pool was never busy and was stunning. Close enough to Ao Nang to walk, but a shuttle is put on by hotel which we used a lot. Thank you for a wonderful stay, one I will remember for a long time.
