Duang Jai Resort
Ranked #55 of 111 Hotels in Ao Nang
Reviewed 31 May 2014

I learned Duang Jai Resort from Tripadvisor and made the booking for 4 nights during May 20 to 24, 2014. Before the trip, the manager Jeab answered my queries very informatively and on-time. Upon our arrival at the resort, we found that made a correct decision about the stay in Krabi. The resort is clean, nice garden, great pool with family atmosphere and quite surrounding. The staff are quite friendly with smile and talking, but not much English. The room we stayed is spacious with all necessary needs for travellers and view to the pool. Free WIFI access and the breakfast is good. We really liked the pancake they served. The resort is few minutes walking to the Aonang Beach and the start of Noppharat Thara Beach. Duang Jai Resort is the recommended resort for staying in Krabi.

We stayed 3 nights over 13-15 April. It was Songkren. The hotel has a homely atmosphere and staff would greet you with a friendly smile and small talk. A lady manager' swarm disposition made this hotel stay very special. Breakfast was adequate and spread was sufficient for a smallish hotel. A 5mins walk takes you to the main thorough fair. The room is large and comfortable. Furnishing is basic and looks abit dated. The hotel would have deserved a 4 rating except for the mosquito infested room.this could be due to the construction site to its left and unattended landed on its right. Do bring your mosquito patches.

Room Tip: We had the 2nd room from the reception facing the construction site. There was no noise whatsoever...

It's the first time i have been misled on tripadvisor. I selected this place based on the reviews and its ranking, and I have never been more disappointed.

Other than the ambience that is pretty calming, nothing else would attract me to stay here again.

For me, the location of the hotel talks a lot about convenience. This place is situated on a small street, and requires at least 5 minutes of brisk walking to hit the main road. From the main road, walking to Ao Nang beach will require a good 20 minutes; or 10 min of walking to Nopparat Thara beach. To get to the main thoroughfare of Ao Nang where the shops and McDonalds are, take a tuk tuk, don't even bother to try walking in the hot sun. The only saving grace about the location of this hotel is that there are food stalls and 7 eleven within 5 mintues of walking. Now I can understand why this resort does not want to produce a map with its location.

I had the deluxe top view room. The room is sufficiently furnished. But the cleanliness left much to be desired. Black droppings near the towel hanger were not cleaned away even after 3 days. I even found a bug crawling near my luggage.

Breakfast was basic, with omelette freshly cooked on the spot, and cornflakes, bread, porridge and sausages laid out for your selection.

Late checkout indicated as a perk if you book directly is not true. Asked for late checkout and was told all rooms were fully booked. I verified it by booking a room via the website and guess what? All room types were available.

Really, think twice, there are many other hotels in Ao Nang.

The hotel facilities is excellent. the design of the hotel is very unique, it impress me for my first step walk in. the garden and the restaraunt is not big but having its own unique design. i stay in ground floor and the room surprise me with its own small garden with a wooden chair! Not only manager but all the staff is very friendly and helpful, I really fell like a homestay back home. Highly recommended hotel.

After reading so many good reviews on Duang Jai Resort, I decided to booked them thru their webpage. After that, we communicate thru email to arrange transport to pick up from airport (600THB) & other stuffs. Upon reaching airport that day & waited for about 15 - 20mins no one came to pick us up. :’( :’(

So hubby & I got no choice but to take the bus (150THB/pax) from airport to our resort . The journey was about an hour trip. 


Upon reaching the resort, we were greeted by the staff & manager (Jeab) and also told her that no one pick us up at the airport. She apologized. After making the balance payment, the staff showed us to our room. The room was big & spacious and come with balcony near the swimming pool. Btw, we stayed at 2nd level so it's rather quiet...


Breakfast was okay as they don't have much choices...


There's lots of restaurants & food stalls nearby... So don't worry if you're hungry...


If you wanna buy snacks or drinks there's a 7-11 too.. And it's better to buy your items at 7-11 than at shop houses ...
