Having arrived at hotel after long flight, checked in and greeted with a cocktail and cool flannel which was much needed. Our rooms were interconnecting and absolutely lovely with a view of the pool. Rooms are very spacious and lovely and clean with everything you could need and was cleaned to a great standard everyday with beautiful flowers left on our beds. The pool area is great although the pool bar is quite expensive compared to town. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Yada on the reception desk was great and always helped us with any queries. The breakfast was nice with the usual bacon, eggs, omlettes, cereals, fresh fruit and a different thai dish everyday. The location of the hotel is great because you are far enough out but easily walkable to town. We walked into town but usually had a Tuk Tuk back which is great especially if you have one with music. My children who are 17 & 14 enjoyed the pool and we spent most afternoons at the top end of the beach enjoying the massages which are well worth the money and experience. They would also give you free chairs on the beach for the afternoon and fresh fruit. We went on the 4 Island tour which was great but look into the prices because everywhere is different. We booked at the hotel but it is cheaper in town. We tried several restaurants in the town and can recommend "The Long Tail Boat" which is situated at the end of Seafood Avenue. Great food and located right by the beach where the see breeze is much appreciated. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definately be returning. Excellent Hotel and Excellent Staff.
Have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Thailand the 2nd half our holiday staying at the Thai Village Resort Hotel. Only if one was being very picky could you find fault with this hotel and its staff.
We stayed here for 11 days 29th sept to 10th oct 2010.
On arrival we were greeted by the manager with a welcome drink and check in was snooth and quick.
Our rooms were both spacious and clean with a view over the pool(the majority of rooms do overlook the pool, we stayed in rooms 922 & 927) Rooms have air con and a fan. You can opt for twin rooms with 2 larger than average single beds or a double roon with a super kingsize bed.
We boarded on a B&B basis and breakfast is served from 7-10am. There is the usual choice of cereals, cooked breakfast (eggs bacon, sausage etc.) fruits toast and even curry!! tea and coffe in abundance.As we were there in what is classed as low season we were almost 1 waiter/waitress per 2 guests so very attentive.All staff are so friendly and polite and if you learn some of there language and use it they are delighted. Nothing is too much trouble for them, i feel they are a credit to this hotel.
The only fault (and i am being picky here) i can say is the gym equitment is dated and not very good-- but then again not everyone uses the gym on holiday and secondly drinks and food at the hotel even tho cheap by uk standards are v. expensive compared with the town.
Ao Nang itself is very charming and not unlike a large greek village. Its about a 10 minute walk down hill from the hotel so we used to walk into Ao Nang and get a tuk tuk back. By the way the tuk tuk's are great fun. There is an abundance of restaurants and cafes here also plenty of street stalls selling pancakes and local dishes you can littrely eat a meal for as little as £1. There is a fantastic fish restaurant (Aree Ba Ba) at the far end of Ao Nang opposite McDonalds (YES there are McDonalds, Burger king and Subway but they are mostly empty) which we found to be the best in town we ate there 3 times and each meal was better than the last.
The clothes here at Ao Nang are also cheap we plan to go again next year and are not going to pack much as everything is so cheap from tailor made suits shirts blouses to beach shorts and t shirts.
Ao Nang is a very casual place and no-one gets dressed up shorts and t shirts are just as acceptable in day time as evening.
We did a couple of trips 4 island trip and elephant trekking and a long boat to reilly island. we paid 800baht for island trip which is a full day including lunch visiting Maya island(were the film The beach was filmed) Bamboo island Phi Phi for lunch and swim and finally Monkey beach take some bananas to feed the monkeys who live on the beach.
Elephant trekking icluded trekkiing through forrest and washing elephants in the river this was an awesome experience and by far my favourite trip this cost 550 baht the trip to reilly was via longboat and cost 100 baht.If you book all your trips at once you can barter more and never pay advertised price and shop around there are lots of places offering the same trips and you can barter one against the other.
All in all a truely delightfull holiday and one we wish to complete. This was our first trip to Thailand and it certainly won't be the last.
Krabi Thai Village is built around a large inner courtyard with three lovely swimming pools, coconut palms, and lush vegetation including orchids and bromeliads. The hotel is beautiful, the staff very friendly, the service excellent. We had a huge room with balcony looking out on to the inner courtyard. Every couple of days we would come back to find our bed covered in flowers and petals beautifully arranged.
Eating in the hotel is more expensive than outside as you pay VAT and service charge. Just opposite the hotel entrance driveway and slightly to the left is a very nice family run restaurant called the 'Green Lemon'. We thought that was the best food and the best value and ended up eating there frequently.
To get to the beach you turn left at the hotel entrance driveway and walk along the road for about five minutes until you come to a 'T' junction. You can then turn either left or right - both ways lead to the beach. Right leads to a more sandy beach. Left leads to shops and restaurants and a beach with coarser sand.
We took various tours, all were pretty good. The snorkelling is good where there is coral but you need to go with someone who knows where to find it. The water is a wonderful temperature for swimming.
We were there at the start of the rainy season so the place was relatively quiet - not many other foreign tourists at all. Some days it rained for a short time, other days not at all. Some days it was a bit overcast but still hot. It didn't affect our holiday at all.
we stayed at the thai village resort in krabi. we had read reports that this hotel was not that great. We have been going to thailand for the last 10 years, and have stayed in many different hotels. we were apprihensive about staying here, but decided to give it ago.
The hotel was wonderful, the staff were friendly and helpful. The downside was that the pool area, could do with a little maintenance as there were a few cracks and missing tiles which you had to watch out for, the drinks etc at the pool bar were a little expensive, but i guess that is because we are used to going to thailand when the rates have been better.
asided all of that the restaurant was wonderful, and we ate there twice. My son who is four had a wonderful time, and our room was lovely and spacious.
Overall i would definately go back to this hotel, however Krabi is getting now a little busy for our liking, so my try to find another destination that can now become our paradise.
My wife and I had a brief overnight stop here en-route to Phi-Phi, this is a reasonable hotel in an unenviable position.
The first and most disappointing thing about the hotel is its location. On what can only be described as a back street about a 10 minute walk from the Ao-Nang beach. It is located directly opposite some average looking restaurants and the walk to the beach (minus a pathway for the first 250 meters) takes you past a decent mini-market and loads of small shops and stalls selling various cheaply priced goods. It was my first impression of Krabi and it was not a good one.
Ao-Nang is busy, and incredibly tourist driven so has lots of choice for places to eat, has many vendors offering competitively priced excursions to places far more beautiful than the local town and, if it’s your thing, lots of shopping. Hotel is well placed to get to the pier (5 min by car or 15 min walk) where local ferry services run at a low cost to more remote and attractive parts of the area.
We passed through the town on return from Phi-Phi and it was during the Songkran – The beach, town, and pier area were packed with families and children of all ages celebrating the festival, it was a great sight and I was glad we witnessed it. It took around 1 hr to travel about 3km through the town (by car) as the roads were full of revellers in the back of trucks and trailers armed with water pistols, buckets of water, etc, drenching each other and bystanders with smiles all round – Not so good if you’re in a hurry to get somewhere…
So enough of the location, the hotel…
We were warmly welcomed by the manager and this set the tone for the service throughout our brief stay. Reception, Concierge, Restaurant and Bar staff were all very polite, efficient, and seemingly happy in their work.
We used the restaurant in the evening and prices are cheap (no doubt to compete with local restaurants) and the quality good – Not great but good. European or Thai dishes available. Breakfast had a wide choice to suit every taste, however quality compared to other establishments is a little lower. The bar has a good choice of drinks, again competitively priced – We made the most of the happy hour b.o.g.o.f. deals – Makes everything much better value.
Rooms are large, clean and well equipped. In general equipment and décor seems somewhat dated now but rooms have been well maintained and are certainly comfortable. Good, well priced mini-bar, complimentary water, etc. Bathroom good size, clean, and all the expected “with compliments” sundries in place. Only complaint about the rooms was the distinct lack of any form of sound insulation. We may have been unlucky and had particularly bad neighbours but you could hear T.V’s, balcony conversations, and movement well into the early hours, suppose the only answer to that is “if you can’t beat them, join them”.
Can’t comment on the rest of the facilities but the pool looked good and not overcrowded through the day which is always a bonus.
In summary I’d say a marginally above average hotel, good service, in a very average location. A cost effective base to escape to the better parts of Krabi and surrounding Islands.
