This hotel is in a quiet location between Ao Nang (very busy) and Noppharat Thara (much more peaceful) so you can choose which direction to spend your time. It's a short walk to the beach but you can take a free ride from the hotel if you wish. Similarly the busy shops and cafes of Ao Nang are only a walk away. A tuktuk costs 40 baht if you need it and there are plenty.
The Duangjai Resort is a Thai style building, with two levels of rooms around a pool, and the pool is surrounded by beautiful lush planting so it's very green and private. (Most rural hotels here are called resort even though they don't have extra facilities). We arrived by hotel shuttle from Krabi airport and received a pleasant welcome from the staff with a cool drink. We were taken to our room on the ground floor and the amenities were explained to us. The room and pool were spotlessly clean and the staff very helpful so it was all very relaxing. We had a large comfortable bed, ample furniture and cool tiled floors. Steps led down to the kitchen/bathroom area, this could be a little dodgy if you have to get up in the night. There was also a small green garden at the rear of the room. The kitchenette was very small and basic. There was a safe in the wardrobe, but the wardrobe was a little frustrating as it had rather clunky sliding doors which needed manoeuvring to get to the hanging space or the safe. The TV had many channels but these were mainly Asian - we eventually found BBC World News which was on a different channel to that listed. A couple of times we had to ask to have our room made up (around 1pm) but each time they did this straightaway.
Breakfast was included and was good. There were plenty of books but almost all were in Swedish as this area attracts them in great numbers. We ate just down the road one night and then subsequently used other restaurants - we enjoyed the Italian restaurant at Ao Nang very much called Laluna.
All in all a good choice for us.
