Deevana Plaza Krabi Aonang
Ranked #6 of 109 Hotels in Ao Nang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2012

I have always had a thing for Mercure hotels and I try to stay in one whenever I can. Opportunity presented itself when the wife & I made a last minute plan to visit Krabi in Nov 2011. This was prompted by a need to cut short our trip to Bangkok on account of the 'impending floods'.

While traveling from the airport to the hotel, our cabbie & we had a tough time finding the 'Mercure' hotel in Ao Nang. Apparently the locals know it as 'Deevana' so it may be worthwhile stating that upfront instead of calling it the Mercure hotel or something.

The hotel is not exactly situated 'close' the Ao Nang beach - that would stretching the imagination a bit. It's a good 25 minute walk from Ao Nang at any rate, though the hotel operates a shuttle service to ferry guests to & fro the beach. Ao Nang is a quiet little place with none of the 'excitement' (to put it mildly) of Phuket and that suited us just fine - since what we really wanted was a nice romantic getaway. Krabi / Ao Nang really is a 'couples' place and we will be visiting again.

The hotel itself is located at a fair distance from the main road. The roads are not very well lit and the tuk-tuks tend to quote exorbitant rates. Thankfully, the walk seemed safe enough - and we ended up walking on most occasions.

Our welcome included a welcome drink and a quick overview of the hotel premises & amenities. The hotel benefits from a very interesting design sense, very aesthetic and chic. The room was clean and reasonably well furnished. The shower in our room was busted - something that the hotel should have checked before allotting us the room - getting it repaired actually took longer than I would have liked.

Every room has a nice balcony, which doesn't offer much of a view (unless you want to see other balconies) apart from the pool below. The staff is very courteous and polite but (at that time and seems the hotel was very new) seemed not too knowledgeable. The only negative point was when I ended up falling badly ill (owing to a snorkeling trip going awry) and the staff being completely clueless about how I could get to a doctor. Luckily for all of us, I recovered fully the next morning.

Our package included breakfast and we positively dug into it. Couldn't help feeling that some of the items could have used lesser egg than they did but it was perfectly good otherwise.

All in all, it's a very nice place and at that time, quite reasonably priced. When we visit Ao Nang again, the Mercure Krabi Deevana will definitely be the first hotel we consider for our stay.

My partner and I were in awe when we stepped into the beautifully-litted reception (we arrived at night).

It was like a spa reception. You see rattan seats with cushy pillows, and wood-based designs that immediately set you into a relaxing mood. In the day, it paints a slightly different picture when all the lush greenaries surrounding the reception become visible.

The room was even better. Rain shower. Thoughtful balcony design (with drying racks for you to hang your wet swimsuits or beach wear). Room is also painted in a cool and refreshing baby blue and white hue.

This is quite a huge property. It has a large restaurant and a swimming pool of good length. There's also a bar counter by the pool, plus a gym. The ground floor units have the swimming pool within direct access. Yes, they can just walk right into the pool from their balconies. The communcal area is dotted with beautiful tropical trees and nice planters.

Of course, with a large property like this, you may expect to receive less personal service. Nevertheless, there is nothing to fault about their service - just less personal (which was good for us - we don't like too much attention).

Good location to stay at Ao-Nang, Krabi. Within a walking distance from hotel to main road which approx. 600 metre. Breakfast is very good, swimming pool is very long and nice for relax after the beach and sun.

A New hotel with nice rooms comforatable bed. good breakfast spread, gr8 taste of food.
Better service then many other Hotels in Thailand, Actually the staff was gr8 especially the front desk team.
Lucky to get upgraded to the beach access room
But the only negetive factor was the location quite far from the beach we thought that it would be a beach hotel as the address says Aong Beach but the beach is about 20 mins walk
The Hotel Swimming pool was not gr8 quite small....too much of clorine in the water
But overall i would recommend this hotel as some1 wants to relax and have a quite time...

Room Tip: Choose an Hotel which is located near to the beach!!!

We had a great 7 night stay at the Deevana. The staff were fantastic and very friendly Junatip at the reception was very obliging and helpful. The hotel is tucked away on a little street between AoNang and Nopparatara Beaches. It's an easy walk to where everything is happening (even pushing a stroller) and it's tucked away enough to feel like a little sanctuary. The hotel has free shuttles down to the AoNang strip, there are plenty of Tuctuc's and taxi's right outside the hotel entrance. Personally I'd recommend hiring scooters, they are very cheap and give you a bit more freedom.

The hotel has great pools that cater for all guests, due to the design of the hotel they are perfect to cool off in the afternoon after a day of sunshine on the beach as they are fully shaded by the hotel buildings in the afternoon. As the mother of 3yr old I really appreciated it!!

We are regular visitors to AoNang and have stayed in numerous hotels. We will definitely be staying at the Mecure Deevana on our next trip.

Thank you for a wonderful week!

Room Tip: They have great rooms that have direct access to the pool. We'll be booking one of those next v...

Rooms and bathroom were big and clean. Beach towels, bathrobes, umbrellas and a bag to carry them were provided in the room which was very useful. The bed was very comfortable.
The only minus point in the room was that they did not stock any free snacks and drinks(except for two water bottles) in the room.

I ate dinner couple of times at the Kingfisher restaurant and the food was delicious. However, the breakfast was overpriced at 400 baht per person. I had to go out to a near by restaurant within walking distance for breakfast.

There was a decent swimming pool and I saw several guests enjoying the pool.

The other services at the hotel like taxi or spa appeared to be overpriced. For example, a taxi to the airport was priced around 800 baht or more, when you can easily book a taxi outside the hotel at a travel agency for around 500 baht. Thai massage price appeared to be double than what other massage places were charging. I think they should fix this and offer fiver star comfort but the same price as outside.

Other than the overpriced services, I think the hotel is great value for money and I enjoyed staying in the hotel.
