I believe this is a new resort,located 5minutes walk to the beach and easy excess for shopping and dining. Upon arrival, they greet and smile to you. Upon check in, reception Nat doing a great job but if he can hands on concierge info would be great. We asked where to Halal food and he ask to just walk to the left side of the road and look for Halal sign, we found out there's one great halal dining just infront of the hotel across the road. We been escorted to our room which is Deluxe room. Huge (48-50 square meter),nice and clean but the bed is a bit hard. View from the balcony is beautiful, lots of tall trees and peaceful. If you were lucky you can see some squirrel on the tree. Massage treatment was absolutely good and they charge same price as outside spa. We didn't take hotel tour package as we get better deal from agent outside. Breakfast was simple and nice. If you don't want rushing for check out, plan to check out earlier than you transportation pick up time as they will take a lil bit time to check the room before releasing you. Overall, its a beautiful hotel and worth for your money :)

I planned for a holiday with my family at Krabi. Came across Tipa Resort and had done my booking for
4d/3n package. I had email the resort and Amp always replied and provide me with informations that I needed. True enough as shown on line, the deluxe room was very spacious, comfortable and clean. The location is very convenient and short walk u may find all the things u need!! Thumbs up!!!!!

Wrote in points format for easy read:

Staffs
On general, they are not very well versed in English, hence can’t answer much basic enquiries. Confusion throughout from online reservation to checking in. Took us almost an hour to get stuffs done and registered with all guests’ passports. Language barrier is not the major issue but attitude of the staffs that needs to be improve. But saves the day during check out, we had the manager there who was very helpful with initiative to help out our heavy luggage and cares to ask if we’ve enjoyed the trips.
Rooms
Deluxe rooms – clean & spacious, equipped with extra sofa bed in each room.
Bungalow – Typical rustic hut on high slopes, took us almost 10mins to walk up hill, not suitable for elderly. Lots of mosquitoes. Comes with stand alone air-conditioner barely working well. Entire furnishing looks run down, kinda eerie feeling at night. Seriously in need of maintenance. Basic toiletries are lacking. No toothbrush in sight. Thankfully we have brought our own.
Common area
Lots of mosquitoes. Bring along insect repellent, even for short walk or breakfast. Small swimming pool which we don’t have the chance to swim in it when it’s crowded with people.
Weather
Generally good weather, bearable sunshine and frequent short rain. Advised to arm with an umbrella.

Food
The only meals we took is daily breakfast which is included in the hotel. Limited selections, normal ABF style. Not much changes in menu. We ate the same stuffs for 4 days.

Hotel is still under renovation and can be quite noisy. Luckily our rooms are far away for the noises. Good location which is just right inside the main street where we can walk directly to the longtail boat jetty.

There are plenty of the same star rated hotels with good location shattered around the main Ao Nang street area. Keep your options open. But generally, it’s fine, just don’t expect too much.

Streets
Didn’t see much stalls as described in forums selling authentic foods along the main streets. All stalls sells almost the same things nothing as wide range as compare to Bangkok of course. Bargaining is a must, start as least 50-70% of the starting price and slowly negotiate your way up.

Food
We had a quick but good meal in a restaurant opposite the hotel named Tanta’s. They have reasonably priced, good food and service, nice and cosy.

For seafood, most of the locals recommended us to Wang San Seafood restaurant. So we took a tuk tuk ride @ 20bahts per person there. Reasonably priced and good tasty fresh seafood served. Had a good meal priced at 1580 baht for 6 seafood dishes.

Nightmarket
Have a trip to the nightmarket there for a different experience. Ride there on Tuk tuk which costs 30 baht per person, about 10mins ride from Ao nang Tipa Resort. Nothing much to shop there but plenty of local food stalls and a mini fun fare for children.

Overall a nice and quiet resort. Breezy at most times with nice tropical surroundings. Located in buzzling AoNang yet has a sense of privacy feeling when in the resort.

3 minutes walk to the beach with plenty of tuk tuks waiting at the resort doorstep.

For me this hotel is really great place to stay. Me and my partner was enjoying our holiday staying in this hotel. We were lucky as the renovation had been completed therefore we were not disturb by it. Breakfast was good enough for us. The only disappointing is the swimming poor too small. During evening time the pool is pack with people and we can't get the chance to use it.

This hotel was chosen on behalf of myself and my boyfriend by a travel agent in Bangkok, and it certainly did not disappoint!

We could not have asked for anything more. Cabins are located up a slight hill (golf carts can drive you up it as and when you need), but don't be fooled, they're not just 'cabins' - but more like luxurious little rooms hidden away amongst the trees - extremely romantic! Our bed was a lovely little four poster and all amenities were supplied, and the room was perfectly clean.

Massages and tours could easily be arranged at the desk. Wished we could have stayed longer! Perfection.

Room Tip: If you don't fancy a climb late at night, make sure to get a gold cart to drive you up, or get a...
