“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

Great stay in this recently renovated hotel. Thankfully the renovations had finished before we arrived, as our agent Andaman Sky (great company, google them for lots of info on the region) had said they had been assured by the resort would be the case. This hotel’s location is the best in Ao Nang and we had a great room, the Grand room it was called, one or two steps up from the Deluxe, or so we perceived after chatting about the resort with other people round the pool, some of whom were quite down on the Deluxe rooms.

Ao Nang was a laugh and a half, even with a toddler in tow, we spent most of our time down the other end of the beach at the massage hut area where there are dozens of little huts offering massage. We hardly went anywhere except to eat, so it was good that Ao nang was lively, we had just come from a very relaxing stay on Koh Lanta but were starting to get a bit bored, so Ao Nang was just what we needed, went out and ate and watched the people going by (lots of them).

Construction is ongoing on the territory. All roads on the territory are blocked. Dust, noise from construction. No clean beach - dirty send and stinking water, streams of sewage all over the beach. Beach beds are for the VIP-villa guests only. No lunch box in case of early departure. No Wi-Fi. No electronic key for the door. Dangerous bathroom interior.

Room Tip: Deluxe hotel rooms are too close to street (noise)

It's biggest plus point is that it is the only hotel in Ao Nang which is on the beach. That's probably why it charges a tariff which is a trifle too high for a hotel which, in my opinion, is a 4 star hotel.

The Pros :
(i) A private beach (but then, Ao Nang beach by itself is nothing great)
(ii) Very friendly staff
(iii) Neat & clean rooms and properly maintained surroundings
(iv) Prompt room service
(v) Very well located - string of restaurants and other shops as soon as you come out of the entrance, booking office for long tail boats a 5 minute walk away and pick up up point for island tours a 10 minute walk away

Cons :
(i) Very stingy on replenishing tea/coffee/sugar sachets in room
(ii) Poor wifi connection (not that it matters to me since I stay off the net on holidays but I am making this comment since it seems to matter to a lot to travellers)
(iii) Not enough lighting in the room and bathroom (I had to struggle to shave)...and to get really fussy, it's a bit strange that there is no towel rack in the tub area and no phone in the loo.

Btw, was not bothered by the renovation work at all but maybe that was because my room was away from the main area of renovation activity ?

We were here in the second week of December. The hotel staff was incredibly nice. Due to weird timings of flights from India, we reached at 10am but they just checked us in with no issues on early arrival. The rooms were very good. No complaints there. The fact that it has it's own piece of beach made it perfect. As well as when you walked out of the hotel, you were bang in the middle of the restaurants, bars and shopping street. But due to the vastness of the property, you had incredible privacy once you got in. If I go back, I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
My only negative, which isn't really that big a deal, is their breakfast was ok. I could never get my eggs cooked completely. They didn't get it when I asked them to flip my eggs as I don't like sunny side up. But like I said, it wasn't a biggie cause there were other things in the buffet that one could eat.

We visited this resort for New Years eve and jan 1st. The staff were very lovely, and the tourism information desk was especially helpful and efficient in booking our tours.
It was unfortunate that the resort is undergoing a large amount of construction in the middle of the accommodation, which wasnt very pretty, however we were lucky enough to be there during their public holidays so no work was being done.
The compulsory New Years Eve dinner (that we had to book when booking the accommodation) was ok. They created a fun 'amusement park' atmosphere with games of skill to win toys etc - great for the kids.
The number one reason we would recommend this resort is it is the only one right on the beach, infant our 4 island day tour returned everyone to within 5 minutes of our resort - others had to get transfers back to their hotel.
We would stay here again.

This resort is very old and over priced. We paid for a sea view villa. We we're put in Room A1 which was right next to the bar and restaurant. The bed was as hard as a rock and the curtains didn't open....amongst many issues.

They are also currently expanding the resort and there is construction noise.

There was a positive though the resort was on the beach and the room was relatively clean.

May S, E-Commerce Manager at Krabi Resort, responded to this review, 9 January 2014
Dear Mike294226

Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts about your stay at Krabi Resort.

First of all I would like to apologize that we could not offer you another room that located further away from our bar and restaurant during your stay on the New Year period.
I have noted on the points you have raised regarding the room and its condition to our management for immediate improvement.
I believed that during your stay our Operations Manager and her team must have put all their effort to solve the issues addressed and make your stay the pleasant one.

We always focus on the satisfaction of all of our guests and would be very happy to receive constructive and factual feedback to help us maintain and develop our standard.
While I know we didn’t manage to impress you on this occasion, I do hope we may have the opportunity to serve you better should you decide to stay with us again.

Sincerely yours,

May S.
E-Commerce Manager
