Krabi Resort is a large complex situated at the far end of Ao Nang Beach. It is by far the best location in Ao Nang, being the only resort which fronts onto a sizeable length of the actual beach front. Just behind the beach itself the resort consists of a series of attractive beach bungalows. However, these are currently in a poor state of repair and are undergoing renovation. The luxury villas are situated in a modern three-storey complex which sits under the forested hillside which marks the far end of Ao Nang beach.
The luxury villas are very well designed and appointed, with sizeable balconies overlooking the resort. As of August 2013, just beneath these luxury villas the resort is currently in the process of constructing a very large swimming pool complex. The noise from this ugly construction site starts early and ends late in the evening. This is a large –scale project and construction will presumably continue right through 2013. While this construction is in progress, the resort cannot really be recommended. The resort does already have a beautiful swimming pool which is overlooked by a two storey block which houses individual hotel rooms. The construction would not be noticed from one of these rooms. The breakfast restaurant is situated along the sea front and it is possible to eat breakfast at outside tables right on the beach front. Breakfast is very good with a very large range of Western and Asian options. The staff members at this hotel are delightful and there is a useful travel bureau which will help with the organisation of day trips. Krabi Resort is a beautifully situated and very well conceived resort, which is currently marred by the fact that one of its key selling points, the beach bungalows, is unavailable and the high end luxury accommodation is faced with a full-scale construction site. The luxury villa rooms are very beautiful. Despite the issue of the construction, we enjoyed every minute of our stay at this resort. Ao Nang itself is a very laid back, well-developed but very unspoilt resort which is frequented by a range of travellers from backpackers to families and from Westerners to Thai tourists. It is an ideal jumping off point for boat tours to beautiful locations such as Railey and Phi-Phi. There are lots of lovely restaurants and bars to enjoy in the evening, but this is not a raucous or hectic resort.
