“Good for families, but Kitchen staff really poorly trained”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Resort is lovely, small enough not to be overwhelmed by crowds and yet not sooo tiny that it feels inadequate. The boat guys on the island across the beach are friendly though not pushy, so do organise a day trip out for yourself to Hong Island. Right next door to the resort is a mini mart where snacks, beers, etc can be bought at non 5 star rates. Next door also, Mother House, non pretentious Thai food at reasonable prices, very good taste...some of the best Thai food we have had ever. The hotel food available only at Kitchen is not bad at all, though pricey. Speaking of food, 10 mins walk down to Klong Muang Plaza (Sheraton side), Royal Clay Oven was good Indian food if you tire of Thai-- much better than Gajanana we thought which was similar price but food was "diluted".
I give this 4 stars and not 5 because: a) breakfast was mediocre, hardly any variety (perhaps low season) and taste very dull. b) staff at Kitchen just lounged around, hardly had any initiative to look around the see our arms flying up n down for assistance. c) the tall pool guy, was never around to open the umbrellas or lay the towels- it felt like we had to do it all ourselves. moreover, while at the pool, no one ever ever came by to ask if we could be helped (food, drinks). and after walking over to them to order, the left overs wouldnt be cleared for hours literally- Very poor service by tall pool guy and the restaurant staff, generally...though some of them did make an effort. Just not trained for 5 star resort of SLH class. Overall, would recommend this for families, as away from Ao Nang, lovely rooms, friendly people. Please train your staff though. Spa was good value we thought. Lastly, pls make the breakfast spread better.

Room Tip: If you like partial views of the Seas, ask for the Villas ending in -02

Stay here for 3 nights for my honeymoon and I'm glad I made the right choice. From the moment we stepped into the Resort, we received 1st class services. The rooms are beautifully decorated and is very clean, exactly the same as the photos shown. Conveniently located within 2 mins to the beach, you have an undisturbed beach to enjoy at any time. With the resort targeting couples, you can truly enjoy the serenity you crave for.

The downside of this place is that it is located 30mins away from Krabi town. If you want to visit the night markets, be prepared to spend 500 thb one way / pax out of the resort.

My husband and I stayed for 3 night at Nakamanda and we have a lovely experience here. It was a calm and perfect place to be for a newly wed couple like us. We loved the whole resort planning layout, all the villas were designed to facing to the garden or sea, occupants from other villa are not able to view into your room, perfect privacy is provided.

We would say this resort has a lovely and friendly management team. They take care all your needs and ensure all your requirements are fully attended.

1. We had a early morning flight and arrived at the resort at 8.00AM, they have provided a early check into a Sala Villa till our room was ready.

2. We were surprised by the lovely management once we arrived at our room. The bed was decorated with flower and wordings for our honeymoon stay, fruits and champagne were provided. Our luggage were shifted from the earlier day room in just a few minutes by their friendly staff.

3. The villa was huge and comfortable, the bathroom area was spacious and luxurious as we had our own vanity, shower and wardrobe space. Toiletries, slipper for indoor and outdoor use, mosquito repellant lotion and mint oil are provided.

4. The villa was well maintained, room was cleaned everyday or you can request it at any time.

5. Nice private beach and allow us to enjoy sun set view. All the common facilities such as big swimming pool, restaurant, bar, massage and spa rooms are located by beach.

6. Excellent massage and spa experience. Good massage technique, nice and clean room with sea view.

7. Delicious food at the restaurant "The Kitchen". We like the buffet breakfast that with lot of variety.

8. There were friendly staffs stationed at every common areas, they are prepared to help you or attend your requests at any time.

Although it is slightly expensive but it worth it as you pay for what you get. No Negatives we could find. This was the perfect honeymoon for us.

Room Tip: Ask for the room at higher floor to have better view and windy environment.

Luxurious private villas facing the beach. we stayed in their hydro pool villa facing the beach and it was totally worth our money. The beach is also beautiful and it's a great choice for those looking for a lazy holiday

great staff and service. they just wont say 'NO' to any anything. We stayed here for 2 nights in may 2014. The kitchen restaurant was really nice, right by the beach. They never said this is not available or whatever, Whatever you ask them, they will try at their best to get it done as we liked it. Very nice and quite location. Stay here to relax and enjoy best of Hospitality krabi has to offer.

The villa that we stayed in was absolutely wonderful and we were surrounded by greenery everywhere. This resort is especially good for those who seek a peace and serenity. Not overly packed even if there are a lot of people.

For those looking for cheap massage, there is one directly opposite this resort (500 Baht for 2 hours!)

Free kayaking services were available as well, so my family and I had loads of fun!

Service staff were very polite and welcoming.

Room Tip: There are many steps.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Nakamanda and had the loveliest experience ever. The villa was huge and we super loved the bathtub which looks out into greenery. Service staff were all very courteous and friendly. The swimming pool is just gorgeous and there usually wasnt anyone using the pool except us. The food served at the Kitchen was good. Only downside is that there are many mosquitoes which the resort has so kindly prepared mosquito repellant so it wasnt that bad.
