Amari Vogue Krabi
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Nong Thale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

I stayed 4 nights at the Amari Vogue hotel and left with mixed feelings. Here are the pros and cons I experienced:

Pros:
- beautiful, quiet grounds that are more suitable for adults. Rooms are spacious and clean with nice modern bathrooms
- access to beach and long tail boats that will take you to the nearby islands (anywhere from $45-90 for 1-2 people)
- generally friendly and courteous staff

Cons:
- Service: not up to par for a 4 or 5-star hotel. I had arranged for the hotel to pick me up at the airport which they confirmed in email. However, they did not show. When I arrived and asked the hotel what had happened, they first asked to see confirmation on the pickup, and then after showing them, said I actually saved money by getting a regular taxi (which wasn't the point). They said they would investigate what happened. However I never heard back from them
- Food: the remote location of the hotel means you will eat mostly at the 2 restaurants at the hotel. I found breakfast to be poor (hard pancakes and French toast). The Italian restaurant is average. The Thai restaurant is the best choice but again, service issues left me frustrated. I ordered a sautéed tofu with green beans dish. It came out with only tofu. When I asked about the green beans, the waiter took it back to later return with tofu and onions. I just let it go.
The gift ship is extremely tiny and often closed when I went. There were no options to buy drinks or snacks except through your room minibar.

Amari is a good option for a few days in Krabi but I would not suggest more than 3 nights.

Had an amazingly relaxing stay in Amari. Staff were very friendly and service was excellent.....everywhere.Breakfast was sumptuous . The beach is beautiful and the sea like your private swimming pool, clear and calm water. The sunset view is spectacular. What was specially nice is that there were enough loungers/ deck chairs for everyone, so no rushing to block chairs from early in the morning. Also no screaming , jumping children !
We used the spa twice and the massage is probably the best I ve ever had.

My wife, daughter and I stayed at the Amari Hotel for four days three nights. We stayed in a room next to the small upper pool and jacuzzi. It was a clean and spacious room. The bathroom was big and when we arrived the bathtub was filled with flowers. Very nice touch by the house keeping department. We booked directly on the hotel website and part of package included a one night free dinner at the Bellini restaurant. We had a three course meal and the seafood was great. Also we received a 20% discount on food and drinks. We also ate at the Thai restaurant one night. The food was also good there. The hotel has a lower pool and that is where we spent most of our time. We ate lunch at the pool side everyday. They had a Thai buffet on Thursday night and food was really good. We recommend doing this if they offer the buffet. The beach is okay. Shallow water that is good for wading in the ocean. Nice hotel to spend three or four days to unwind and relax, but not more as there is not much to do. Overall we had a good experience, but there are diffidently better locations to go to in Thailand if you want a better beach and more activities.

My Girlfriend and I have just returned from spending 4 nights (April 2014) in the Amazing Amari Hotel.
We read various reviews before booking mentioning how wonderful this hotel is not just for its location but also for its staff and we were not disappointed.
From the Moment we stepped outside of the Taxi and took in the amazing view from the Hotel lobby which literally takes your breath away we were greeted by smiling staff who want nothing more than for your holiday to begin, we were bought cold drinks and towels and made to feel if we were royalty.
The Duty Manager then came over to introduce himself to us and to our surprise and delight mentioned that we were being upgraded to a 1 bedroom Villa which was beyond our expectations, could things get any better after this, the answer is yes, once you walk down the stairs to the rooms the view is simply nothing can prepare you for....Paradise.
The villa was huge with a separate lounge, bathroom and even a plunge pool/ Jacuzzi for a cheeky dip whilst watching the sun set over Krabi.
The Main Pool is very inviting and not at all overcrowded although we preferred the stunning beach and its awesome sunsets, we walked the whole beach and the Amari is by far the best Hotel on the cleanest part of the beach, we even spoke to a couple staying at the popular Tubbaak beach Resort who commented on how nice it was compared to theirs.
The hotel operates a Happy Hour daily at 5.30pm where you get 2-1 cocktails not to be missed where you can kick back listen to chill out tunes whilst watching the Sun go down on another hot day in Paradise.
We ate at both the restaurants which were very reasonable for a 5 star Hotel with the Bellini being our favourite but the Thai was also very nice.
The breakfasts are also very good with every taste catered for and lots of choice, also you get watch the Hotels own Coy Carp pool swim lazily by waiting for feeding time....
I have nothing but positive things to say about this Hotel and if you thinking of booking its simple just do it you wont be disappointed...
Another point I must make it its very visable how the management get involved in the day to day to day running of this hotel as they are there from Breakfast to bedtime working hard and making sure everything is going smoothly, this was the case when we checked out that Michael even took the time to come over and say goodbye and asked that everything was to our liking...Quite simply sheer class...Thank you Amari for making us feel part of the Amari Family, we will be back next year :)

Room Tip: Villa rooms are outstanding but all rooms look great

Myself, my wife and my parents wanted a nice place in Thailand for a relaxing break where we could sample some Thai culture as well as enjoy the beach lifestyle. We were met at the hotel by the excellent and very friendly reception staff who immediately tended to our needs. We were offered drinks and chilled towels (it was a hot day). The general manager, Michael, came and met us and chatted about the hotel and local surroundings and activities available, which we thought was a very nice touch. Our room was beautiful, in excellent order and perfect for the holiday. An incredible attention to detail and hospitality is evident throughout the hotel and it is this quality that helps Amari Vogue stand head and shoulders above the competition. From the fresh fruit platter provided when we were shown our room, to the daily treats that welcomed us each day - cakes, bisuits, canapes served during happy hour - were all little touches that added up to make this a real quality establishment. The staff are superbly trained, very friendly, and would go out of their way to help us. nothing was ever too much trouble. The private beach was spotless and has stunning sunset views. The food was fantastic and we ate at the hotel everyday. You can book excursions from the hotel, long boats are available to hire (privately - not through the hotel) for trips to nearby islands etc. The hotel also provided a shuttle bus to take guests to and from nearby Au Nang beach and Krabi. This is the perfect get-away relaxation resort that I cannot recommend highly enough. We'll be back, the sooner the better.

A lovely place to stay, with the most spectacular views at sunset across the sea to the islands. Very friendly staff, good food, good airport to hotel service. We stayed in low season so there weren't that many guests - I'd imagine the pool, which is small, gets crowded with more guests, but then the sea is there for you. Air con is a little noisy but overall highly recommended.

My husband and I just returned from our trip and we had a great time.

The grounds are beautiful, the pools are fantastic, the restaurants are delicious, the beach is wonderful and the staff are friendly and helpful. check-in and check-out were quick. Our rate included pick-up and drop-off at the airport and cars were on-time and clean. It was an ideal and relaxing vacation.

The hotel is located on a quite beach with only two other hotels. So it is nice and quiet.

Although there are only two restaurants, one Thai and one Italian, the menu at the Italian restaurant changes between lunch and dinner. So we never got tired of the food over our four day trip. There was great selection and I didn't have a bad meal once, all was great. Breakfast buffet has a lot of choices and is kept well stocked and fresh.

Be sure to check-out happy hour. You get 2 for 1 drinks and watch the sunset over the ocean and islands, its fantastic.

We visited the spa for a couples massage, it was wonderful and relaxing. We highly recommend indulging.

Also, the hotel offers a free shuttle to Ao Nang twice a day, (its a small very developed town about 20 min away)be sure to reserve a spot a day before for the shuttle, as they tend to fill up quickly. Its a good way to kill a few hours if you want a break from the beach,keep in mind the town is a major tourist trap. There is nothing within walking distance other then the hotel next door but it is not a problem. There is a closer strip of restaurants about 10 min from the hotel. It can be reached easily. The hotel can easily arrange a taxi. We did not go (out of pure laziness) but were told by others, there are some good restaurants there and some of the other reviews mention them.

The room was spotless and beds are comfortable.The bathroom is large with a great tub. My only criticism and I am being really picky is the furniture in the rooms could use an update, it was a bit outdated (not the bathroom, it seemed brand new). Also, the chairs at the pool and beach fill up quickly, many people get up early and leave towels on chairs to reserve. I would recommend, if you want to sit at the pool, to do it too. I am usually not a fan of doing this but it was the only way to get a good seat in the morning, so I gave in. Chairs opened up again late in the afternoon.

Please note there are a ton of stairs at this hotel, as it is built into the side of a mountain, everywhere you go involves lots of stairs. So if mobility is a concern, the stairs will be an issue.
