“Am I a walking dollar bill symbol?”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

I haven't once reviewed any sort of accommodation before today, but never have I felt more compelled to do so than in the case of Baan Suan resort.

Let me begin by stating that the majority of you will find yourself here after falling victim to one of the packages, aka scams, provided by the numerous tourist agencies throughout Bangkok. Therefore it will most likely be too late for you.

However if you are considering going to the Krabi region, note that it is a far more relaxed environment, compared to other parts of Thailand. Upon arriving at the resort, you may first realise that not only is it not a thriving area, the resort itself is a long way away from anything remotely interesting such as Ao Nang beach itself. Something that the resort uses in it's actual title.

Now that you're settled in a remote, and quite frankly lonely environment, prepare to be harassed in a way you've never been before. These people will not stop until they've clawed every last baht out of your savaged wallet or purse. They are truly unrelenting. The newly coined phrase "Aye you want some food man," is a phrase that I will never be able to forget. The "restaurant area" (which also happens to be the only place with accessible wifi or where you can sit down outside your room) is overstaffed by up to around 6 teenagers at a time, each of whom will individually hassle you into getting food every time you sit down. They will all do this on multiple occasions, and when they're not asking, they're watching.

But this harassment doesn't come close to what I experienced with the grotesque, obnoxious and arrogant owner. This man will strut around this penned in money farm, in only a towel and flip flops, and at whatever time he chooses. Not once will he smile. But what he will do is ask what you're doing the following day, and then precede to shout out suggestions, followed by enlarged prices (like his belly) that's he's thought of off the top of his head.

Avoid this at all costs.

This place is perfectly off the beaten path outside touristy but fun Ao Nang.
Staff is super chill and sweet with a thai Bob Marley/Bruce Lee charactor at the helm.
Clean rooms, cool ac, great little pool and a ten minute scooter ride thru small paved jungle roads (best commute ever) gets you to the cente of town and all the trappings of both street food and high end restaurants. A couple minutes more and youre at some of the most insanely beautiful beaches we'd ever seen, and we're from California...
In a word, recommended.
Keep in mind its still Thailand, internet is spotty. But if you want a chill place near the noise and party of a tourist town, this place is great...

Lovely place, with very friendly and helpful staff! They try their hardest to help you with anything you need. Very spacious and comfortable rooms which are cheap enough for a budget traveller!! Toilets and facilities are very clean and good is amazing and cheap as well! Not far from centre of Aonang town and they provide a tuk tuk service into town aswell! Best place to stay for a very comfortable relaxing stay!

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Nice bungalow style rooms, AC, TV, fan, large bathroom/shower. Food was ok some dishes were better than others. It is located a fair distance from the town itself but free taxis and mopeds for hire are available to compensate. Can't comment on suitability for families as I was travelling solo.

We booked this online believing it to be a short distance from restaurants, beach etc. But arrived to discover it was a considerable taxi ride to the very busy beach. Fine if you don't mind that, but to be honest Ao Nang not our thing, like Blackpool beach in a heatwave. When we were there it was so packed there wasn't room to move, loud music, neon lights, tourist tat for sale everywhere, we had booked and paid for 5 nights and cut our losses and left after one. We are not rolling in money so that gives you an idea of how grim it was! The room was very musty and although we had booked for 4 people and had emailed to confirm this more than once when we got there we only had 3 beds, on very politely asking, someone begrudgingly got an old mattress delivered which we could barely get into the room. Bathroom very very basic and grim. We stayed in far nicer places that were cheaper, cleaner and more friendly on our travels in Thailand. I have not written before as don't like to 'put the boot in', but am getting daily email requests to write a review so thought I would be honest. My best advice is that unless you are after a loud party type resort avoid Ao Nang altogether. If you want to do nothing Baan Suan is probably ok for a day or two, if you get a nice room( which reading the reviews some people must do) if you don't mind hanging out with people swilling beer for breakfast! Having read the other reviews I honestly cannot believe these people stayed in the same place!

Room Tip: We had a family musty room, they crammed an extra bed in ( horrid old mattress) and charged through...
