Ao Nang Baan Suan Resort
Ranked #40 of 129 Ao Nang B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 January 2014

We booked it on the airport. We got deluxe double room for 1.600B. With breakfast it should be 2.500B but we negotiated to 1.6. We booked 6 nights and we regretted it just after arrival. The tuk-tuk driver took 200B saying tht its at the end of the world and he was right! Motorbike is free but they didnt let us use it first day without explaining wts the reason. And breakfast was really bad - each day you get eggs plus 2 toasts and coffee. First 4 days we got fresh orange juice but then they started serving us sth way to far from the juice - just the color was orange.. 2 guys who we met were so disappointed tht they decided to move to railey beach although they booked for several days. For the rest of our stay in krabi, we found a hotel for 1k, 5 min walking from the beach. ITS NOT WORTH IT!

We got our arm twisted into trying this resort when we arrived on a bus in Krabi. We were only looking for a place to stay for one night at the beginning of October before moving on to Koh Lanta so we thought what the heck. We initially went for a bamboo bungalow with fan at 300B but quickly changed our mind in favour of a concrete one with aircon as for the extra 100B (cost 400B) you get more. The rooms are comfortable if not spectacular, clean but small, although the tap in the bathroom on the sink sprayed water absolutely everywhere but actually into the sink as it had a crack running down both sides, though the resort is extremely peaceful. The real value comes from the fact that you get use of a motor bike when booking a room, and this is really useful as the resort is quite far from town, although they do also provide a free transfer service at set times. A tuk tuk back costs around 150-200B in the evening when the transfer service stops. The restaurant and the service provided was VERY average, but there's not much other choice nearby in terms of food. I did see a monitor lizard walk through the resort though - that was the best thing to happen during our 20 hour overnight stay

It is a nice resort, not luxury, however we got a very nice deal on a poolside bungalow. The staff is friendly, one a bit more than the other. As the hotel is noton the beach, they have given us free access to a motorbike for free. We could go anywhere and had great fun.

I think value is very good and the staff is nice. The pool is good and scenery is much better than we have seen on some of the 4 star resorts around Thailand.

I think it is a good place to stay with kids.

Room Tip: The bamboo huts are cheap, but expect cheap. Better kickup the budget 200 bath and have a normal bun...

We stayed here in the quiet season which made it cheap but we missed the company and general buzz that other guests provide.A small pool is available in the resort grounds which were well tended.The rooms were fine and the beds comfy.We didn't have breakfast included but ate at the resort and found it to be quite good and reasonably priced.Staff could have been more attentive but I don't think their English was very good which was a bit of a barrier to communication.Free scooters are included and were really handy for zipping into town on the reasonably quiet roads.Overall a good value for money resort .

It's sad to say because it was very expensive... The basic doble room with fan was 400 b, the beds are terrible, i fell all painfull, we can fell the woods and the roof was broken, so how it was raining everything got wet. The free scooter is true, but how i dont know how to ride it i used the free taxi, that was always late... The food is not good and the stuffy don't want To help you, they just want your money! I think people here are not good people... Other night i was in the computer near the reception (no wifi in the rooms), planning my trip and making some notes and they turned off the light, i went to the woman and i said, hello, excuse me... I'm here... Can you plêiade leave the light on ( it was arround 23h) and she looked át. Me like (why don't you go sleep?!!!) and she turned it on.... Maybe it was because i am a woman travelling alone... And they have a diferent culture... But if they want to deal with people from different places and have the full house i think they should improve their hospitality.... Há!! And the beds!!! The roof and food as well....

This place was great for our time in Ao Nang.

We paid 500 for a bungalow with A/C and it came with a scooter for all the days we stayed. We had laundry done there and it was reasonable.

Don't expect great customer service, but if you are rolling into town on the bus they can pick you up at the bus station (we didn't organize this in advance but they were there picking up others who did). Avoid the restaurant, there are much more reasonable options less than 5 minutes drive down the street, but the food is fine if you are too hungry.

Huge positive is that Ya's Cookery School (Krabi Cooking School) is less than a five minute walk away and a must must do!

For other tours we actually got great prices from the guys at the hotel, they are negotiable so make sure you try to get the prices down a bit.

Happy travels!

When greeted at Krabi bus station we were promised rooms for 200baht a night. Once we got to the resort the price was upped to 300 a night.

Room was infested with ants and we were given a towel as a bed sheet. The TV that was promised didn't work and no wifi in the rooms which we were also promised.

Location wise it is miles away from anything and unless u can drive a scooter which is provided free you'll be stuck in the middle of the country side and the restaurant in the place leaves a lot to be desired.

The only positive I can say was the pool and free scooters.
