“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Anawin Bungalows has 9 units, from inexpensive fan rooms with very basic/rustic facilities to more expensive, comfortable 'bungalow' rooms with A/C. Unfortunately, my queen-size bed only had king-size sheets so the bed was a rumpled mess after a few turns. I hope this will soon be rectified. Like many places I've stayed in Thailand there seems to always be a shortage of counter-top space or enough hooks or hangers for your clothes.
The gardens are delightful with lots of shaded areas. There are breakfast facilities with simple fair offered. The location is ideal, both close enough to the beach after a long hot day but off the road for quiet enjoyment. The manager Gil speaks French, English, Russian and Thai and is very helpful. Ismail, the owner also has a tour office and offers good rates for any tour available and for a small fee will pick you up or drop you off at the airport in Krabi.
All in all Anawin Bungalows is good value.
(don't miss the Family Restaurant next door, it is the best value and best Thai food in town).

Room Tip: My friends stayed in the last two bungalows at the end of the path, which had A/C and their rooms we...

I love this place! The staff are just brilliant and really bring a smile to your face. I didn't actually stay in the 400 THB bungalows but they looked spotless and more modern than my 'favourite' bungalow. I call it my favourite because for 100 THB more you get a tv that's about as cranky as me in the mornings (ie. it takes about a half an hour to warm up, and even then it's still a bit blurry!) I gather they also have aircon accomodation but I never looked at those. It's slap bang in the middle of AoNang, but situated up a small road so you get complete peace and quiet. About 2 mins to the nearest supermarket, bars and restaurants and about 5 mins to the beach. As I said, it's really the staff that made it for me, apart from bringing a big smile to my face, they sorted out my airport bus, hunted out some English books for me and even gave me a discount on my third stay. How can I ask for more? Thanks guys!

We totally agree with the previous reviews: Anawin Bungalows with its friendly and helpful owners is a really nice place to stay in Ao Nang. The bungalows are located a little up the hill away from the noisy streets but still in close distance to the beach and the city centre.

The aircon bungalow we stayed in was really nice and very clean and only cost us 700 Baht, which is quite a good deal for such a nice place in a very touristy town like Ao Nang. WiFi is also provided and costs around 50 Baht per day.

We would definitely stay at Anawin Bungalows again if we came to Ao Nang again and can only recommend this place to anyone!

Backpacking trough Thailand, I stumbled over this perfect, little Bungalow-Complex which made me stay a lot longer than I intended.

The Bungalow is maybe a five minutes walk from the beautiful beach, the rooms are clean and charming and the owner Ismail is a very nice and helpful host, who arranges everything for you, if you need some help.

Further the Anawin Bungalows convince with a very low price and a good position (calm, near the beach and centre of Ao-Nang).

A perfect stay for everybody searching a cheap and clean place and no tourist trap...

Ps: Rooms mit AC and TV available.

During 9 days in Krabi my wife and I could not believe that we are in this heavenly place! Enjoy every day, every minute, every second location on the coast of Krabi! Enormous role in this factor was that we stayed in Anavin Bungalow! When lived in Anavin bungalows have the same impression that they had come to visit relatives in a nearby town, but not in another country! This is very pleased, would recommend to everybody to stay in this hotel, if you intend to visit Krabi!

Clean, comfortable rooms! The hotel is away from the noisy streets, at night there is very quiet, no one bothers. Inexpensive, but very good. The perfect combination of price and quality. Hosts wonderful people all over the help, advise! Living in this hotel feel like home. My husband and I were very happy holiday there!
