Nice recently built resort. Quite far away from anything but we had scooters so was ok for us. Very friendly staff. First thing I saw when entering our room was the biggest cockroach I've seen in my life. Staff couldn't get rid of it so they gave me a can of big spray. Found two other cockroaches in our room...

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

We LOVED our stay here! It's just nice enough to feel like a proper holiday but not so nice to feel like you're isolated from the Thai life around you. It's infinity pool overlooks an alcove of beach. The beach isn't really swimmable but beautiful and backs up to the gorgeous rock face of the mountain behind it. Honestly, I... More

This is a 3 star hotel w The staff were amazing. They were so friendly and tried really hard to accommodate all requests.

Sads: I emailed them one week before the trip to request for the airport transfer. There were a series of mails sent by them in which I could not really understand what they were trying to say.
