“Very good service”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

We stayed at Nakamanda for 7 nights in Dec 2013. Overall the stay was a very good experience.

But start with some negatives:
- Rooms need some small renovation - the paint is not perfect, some of the wooden doors in bathroom are loose
- The hotel location is distant from Ao Nang (or even Krabi) and there is no good restaurant around. Hire a car
- The breakfast is not perfect - pretty simple selection

For the rest:
- Service, service, service - really excellent. Good care, drinking water by the pool / beach constantly refilled for free, sam of course for the towels. After check-out we were offered a room to take shower before flight - for free again.
- Staff - as for service, it starts and end with staff. All great - helpful, remembering our names, even trying to speak our language and learn some words. The sports guy Book was an extra one but all of them top!
- Food - despite we did not eat at the hotel but twice, it was really nice food, good taste and quality
- Pool - big, good to swim at, nice water temperature. And not crowded at all (all) the time.
- Room - except being a bit weary, they are spacy, nice bathroom. But would be good to add doors to toilet...
- Prices - both restaurant and mini bar were great prices. Minibar - water for 20 Baht, Coke for 30 Baht, the most expensive being fanstastic crackers for 100 Baht.

Please don`t expect much swiming in the sea due to low tide being significant. However this is valid for whole Ao Nang area, so no complaints towards hotel.
Overall especially thanks to the perfect service I give it 5 stars, if possible I would rate 4.5 since the rooms would deserve to look better in such a nice environment. Great job!

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights during our honeymoon in Thailand.
From the moment we were picked up from the airport by private car until the farewall, each second was a true enjoyment. We really felt like in paradise.
All stuff are so helpful, smiling, you can experience true thai hospitality.
Check in was very smooth, we were guided to our villa - that was breathtaking. Everything about it was beyond our expectations: soken bathtub with flowers waiting with a bottle of champagne, private jacuzzi on the terrace with views to the sea, huge living room and separate grooming area for he and she, beautiful flower decoration on the bed. It was better than we had imagined. Our honeymoon package also included spa and thai dinner, that were both amazing.
I had read some negative opinions about their food, but I was very positivily suprized by their delicious food. We had several lunch and dinner in their Kitchen restaurant. Waiting stuff are also very nice.
Their pool is huge and hotel is just next to the beach with beautiful views to the sea and nearby island.
It is perfect location for couples retreat and honeymoon. It is quite far from everything but there are also some good reastaurants nearby.
We are extremely thankful for the stuff, for making our honeymoon so special.
It is definately a place where we would like to go back! And highly recommended.

Room Tip: Jacuzzi villa was a perfect choice. It has private outdoor jacuzzi on a huge terrace with views to t...

Firstly would love to recommend this place for the Hospitality, the staff was so friendly and warm. Everything wish we wanted was fulfilled. All the rooms were more for Luxury suites. Location of the hotel is great, right in front of a small island, where you can walk up when its low tide.
Would love to go back again.

We stayed 3 days at the hotel. Everything was well organised, from pickup at the airport, to even special requests as we celebrated a birthday during our stay. Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff.

We stayed a week at nakamanda and it felt like way too short a time. Everything was superbly taken care of by the smiling and courteous staff and we felt exquisitely pampered. The villa had a fantastic view of the sunset over the tropical island outside the hotel.
All aspects of our stay was great. The only problem was that at the end of our stay it felt like time had just flown past. Next time we will definitely make it two weeks. Thank you so much to the entire staff for making our stay so memorable.

Room Tip: The villas with numbers that end in 2 are at the top and have a more scenic view across the rooftops...

My partner and I stayed at Nakamanda for 2 nights last week. It was one of our greatest experience for vacation. The room was fantastic - clean, huge and comfortable. The staffs were attentive and helpful. The food in the restaurant was delicious especially for dinner. The spa we had was exceptionally good at reasonable price. A great choice that one will not regret.

I stayed 5 nights at the Nakamanda and it was definitely the best hotel I've been in on my 3 weeks trip to Thailand. It was exactly the kind of place I was looking for. Luxurious and very private. The scenery is simply breathtaking. The hotel is located in front of an island on a kind of little peninsula offering two different beaches. Everywhere around you can see those amazing karstik islands... It's just spectacular. Rooms, let's say suites are delightful. A lot of luxury but in a good way. It's a real boutique hotel to me. 2 points are important to know though: It's far from Krabi and Krabi needs to be seen. Almost half an hour of taxi and 20 euros each ways.... The cooking is not very good. Breakfast is great but thai food is not what I expected... Perhaps because I know very well Thai food...Other people seemed pleased. Otherwise it's a paradise and the staff is absolutely charming. Kind and discreet. I absolutely recommand this hotel. I read bad reviews and I don't understand why. You can believe me because I alwas complain about something in an hotel, even when it's one of a leading hotel of the world !

Nakamanda is an excellent pick and it's much more spectacular than on their pictures.
