Krabi Resort
Ranked #19 of 111 Hotels in Ao Nang
Reviewed 26 December 2013

This is the oldest resort in Ao Nang and the only one right at the beach. It has a big garden area, where the bungalows and other buildings are "hidden". Even though the resort is located in the heart of Ao Nang, it has its privacy and is a peaceful place to stay in.

The rich breakfast is served right at the beach with nice views. All the Ao Nang's tourist services, restaurants and shops are close by the hotel. Especially for those enjoying fresh seefood, there is a streetfull of nice seefood restaurants just beside Krabi Resort.

We stayed in a spacious suite with a living room. The interior decoration was very nice with beautiful furniture. The bed was excellent and the aircon silent, very good to sleep.

However one thing to complaint about: there was a very bad smell in our bath room, which sometimes became intolerable. Not acceptable for a 4 star hotel.

Krabi Resort is perfectly located at the end of Ao Nang Beach, which gives you the privacy of been away from the main stream beach and crowd, but is also close enough to enjoy good evenings out with excellent restaurants. Our bungalow with private pool (which we were upgraded to free of charge) is spacious, spotless and great for our family (5 adults) to meet at to relax or plan our days. The long tail boats are close by for trips to any of the neighboring islands. We have been watching the preparation for the Christmas Gala Evening tonight and look forward to it....have never seen so many fairy lights before.....and the decorations that are still going up.....

We stayed here for 4 nights as the first stop in a great fun tour of the region put together by Andaman Sky Adventures, who got us a pair of beach front bungalows and a competitive price and who laid on a brain-free vacation which took in what surely must be the pick of the destinations in the region, well, that’s what we felt like anyway. We liked the cosy little cottage we stayed in very much, they appeared to have been recently refurbished and were in good condition throughout.

The best thing about this resort is its beach front location, plus there is lots of room for kids to run around, not at all like some of the other resorts in Ao Nang, which appear to be built on postage-stamped sized plots. There is a nice little beach bar where you can chill with a cocktail, or you can go out at night to the Centrepoint nightlife zone about 400 metres away – close but not too close to be bothersome at night.

The only real drawback we came across was that sometimes all the poolside loungers were reserved by selfish people who weren’t even there, just a book and a towel. But that’s the same at all beach resorts in this price bracket, isn’t it? The resort’s restaurant seems pretty empty at both lunch and dinner, which isn’t surprising, as within a couple of minutes walk there are endless varieties of restaurants offering all manner of cuisines, from pizza to Indian. Our favourite restaurant is the Krua Thara restaurant about a 4 minute tuk tuk ride away, plus we also liked the Echo, which is only a 2 minute walk away.

Room Tip: Book as part of a custom tour with Andaman Sky - we had a wonderful time visiting 5 different resort...

We stayed in krabi resort December 2013 and we enjoyed our stay there a lot. Overall resort is very good, location is excellent. We stayed in garden view bungalow E3, which was Newley renovated and good in size, bed was quite big and good space to accommodate me, my husband and our five year old kid. Bathroom has good water flow and all time hot water was available, room has good breakfast, and everyday we got new towels. The breakfast was fantastic, although we are vegetarian, they have good range of vegetarian food also, they have fresh fruits, salad, yogurt, cereal, juices, bread, egg counter, and o lot of local and western food like baked potato, tomato, beans, soup, fried rice, noodles and many other non-veg things. The private beach area was very good. The staff is friendly and once our tour can was late for pick up, so reception staff called the tour service and checked the reason for delay, although we haven't booked the tour from the hotel. I am writing this review on the way back to my home and I am very happy with our kRabi visit. The hotel is on the main market place and a lot of good and shopping options are there, I really like the food in the maharaja restaurant which had Indian and Italian food both very good.

This is a wonderful property on Ao Nang beach,Krabi. Rooms are excellent, view is great and breakfast is wonderfully delicious. It is and excellent resort far from the madding crowd with great views on the private beach. There are plenty of shops/restaurants/spas just outside the resort in case one wants to try out other options.

Stayed for five nights here in a bungalow less than 50 metres from the beach, the resort has a slightly old fashioned feel about it and we stayed away from the new builds that will update the resort so were unaffected by them being built. The staff were very helpful and friendly, I would recommend the Thai Massage on site as therapy. The restaurant overlooks the sea and was better for the buffet breakfast than other meals I would say. The swimming pool and bar were okay. Our room was ideal, although the aged A/C was a tad loud. The free Wi-Fi is good in all the public areas but not available in the bungalow we were in. Ao Nang is very touristy and most businesses are run by migrant workers, the two best eating places we found were Canivore and Bussaba which are next to each other and I gather are one and two on TA.
