This is a beautiful resort outside the craziness of Krabi. The grounds of the resort are beautiful, clean and very well manicured. The pool area is very nice and overlooks a cove into the ocean. During low tide, the view isn't great but it's nice to be able to go for a walk or a jog on the beach. When the tide comes in, even though the beach is not great for lounging or swimming, the view is really nice. Great views of the sunset at night.
The service was excellent and the staff was beyond friendly. Very easy to schedule boat excursions, tours, massages, etc through the resort. Other than breakfast, which was delicious, we generally ate outside of the resort so I can't really comment on the food.
There are plenty of stores, restaurants and bars immediately outside of the resort so there is never any feeling of being "trapped". We grabbed drinks or dinner almost exclusively at the bars/restaurants along the beach or on the street outside. Should you wish to go to Ao Nang or Krabi, in addition to a scheduled hotel shuttle, there are taxis and scooters immediately outside the hotel.
The only negative is that it is a bit expensive for the area. We went during high season so it may be more reasonable during low times. But overall, we had an excellent experience at the Nakamanda and would definitely return.More
