Considering the price, the Ban Sainai probably deserves more than 4 stars - however, we've just come from the Pimalai in Koh Lanta and it would be totally absurd to give both hotels the same star rating. Highs: - Stunning cliff face views by the pool - The colourful and exotic plants in the garden - Finding Mandarin ducks on... More

Stayed here during our honeymoon in early January. Ao Nang is a great little beach town that gives you easy access to a day of island hopping from your own long tail boat ride. This was a very peaceful & relaxing place to stay here. It is about 1 mile from the beach/downtown area, but they provide free shuttle rides... More

We just stayed two nights at the resort and really loved the experience. This is my second visit to Krabi and 4th to Thailand in the past 4 years, and I have to state that this was the best hotel I experienced during this time. The bungalows are wonderful, the pool spectacular and the service top notch. It's quiet, got... More

The hotel is a bit far from main Krabi town (about 25 minutes walking leisurely) but they have a shuttle to take you downtown. The food is REALLY good. Tasty and very fresh. The saltwater pool was also really nice after being at the beach all day. The rooms were really nice and each little bungalow was really cute. The... More

Nice room. Spacious and Clean. The only weakness is where it located. Although they provide free shuttle to town and beach but it is scheduled. If you would like have a quiet and relax holiday in hotel most of the time. This resort is highly recommended.

Been to Ao Nang many times before but always considered staying close to the beach as the best option. Not anymore! What a great place to come back to after the beach and tours. Stunning scenery, super pool, wonderful breakfast and a good nights sleep. Highly recommended.

The rooms are in bungalows spaced around the lovely grounds and are well appointed and comfortable, with extra touches like candle lanterns, mosquito coils and scented oil burners.
