Whilst it is a stunning location, being a bit out of town may deter some. Nothing hiring a couple of scooters didn't solve, and trust me, the traffic in Krabi was no problem on a bike. Very nice breakfast, rimflow pool that overlooks the sea with a cold beverage, what more could you ask for.

The location is too far from the main city, so the are schedules to go and come back for free (4 a day) if you arr out of the schedule you have to pay ( a lot!!!) so that was very inconvinient for us... The breakfast is poor... And also the service, only found one person in all the hotel... More

A nice place and retreat for couples or family's with small children. If you like to "shutdown" around 9-10pm.. No access to the beach by the hotel, restaurant and reception is open between 07/09am to 9pm. Difficult to get any help out of opening hours, even hard to get a taxi. Just a security guard on duty. A nice pool... More

Nice little resort far from the hustle and bustle of Krabi and Ao Nang. This will give you nice sceneries and a peaceful place but don't expect many restaurants or bars in the neighborhood. If you want to do many activities I would recommend to stay somewhere else. Rooms at large and pleasant to stay there. Breakfast was not great... More

I have just returned from my trip in Thailand and stayed at Arawan for two nights. I checked my bank account and they have charged me twice for the stay so instead of paying two nights I have paid for 4 nights. I have emailed them three times and have called number of times only to be ignored and hung... More

So, if you are looking for pristine beach and amenities of a 5 star hotel-forget it. If you look for a cheap "upscale dormitory priced room" with NO service except the laundry and shuttle from resort to ao nang-it's a good option. A bit depressing if your plan was to rest at your resort.

Think the place looks a lot better in the pictures than in reality, and too be honest don't think its worth the money. Was my first time in Krabi so didn't really know the area just booked what I thought looked good. Bit too far from any nice beaches, pool ok but poolside bar and restaurant not very good. They...

Nice place but a bit over priced. We stayed at the Honeymoon suite for couple of nights, the room was clean and big with nice balcony facing the sea, in front of the balcony you will find the so called private swimming pool but don't go raising your hopes high for an early morning swim since the pool is no...

We wanted a relaxing place with ocean view. So we had it :) beautiful garden, swimming pool ( we were swimming during the night and you had the feeling of "infinity" because the ocean was just in front of you) clean and spacious rooms. They have shuttle to airport or to Ao Nang so is easy to travel. As I... More

Arawan is a nice, cozy hotel out of town and away from all the tourist. We had a second floor room with a water view. The room was very clean and the bathroom was unique. The mini bar was always stocked and prices were reasonable. The bed was really hard but we found out later you can ask for a... More
