“Honeymoon paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

we stayed there during our honeymoon in Feb '13. It was blissful. The hotel has got the perfect location. The property is so huge that even though the hotel is situated near the town, there is absolutely no noise or disturbance. We stayed in the luxury rooms and were treated very well. Loved the panoramic view that the room provided and the deep bathtub. The property has its own access to a secluded section of the beach, which is fantastic. The restaurant overlooking the beach provides for a very scenic breakfast. Only downside was that the rooms didnt have wifi. hope they have fixed that by now. Overall, it was great to stay there.

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.

This resort was great value for the cost. The rooms weren’t as stunning as we had expected but they were literally steps away from the beach so we were still pleased. The pool area was also pretty nice. They were a bit stingy with the towels but we got a few extras sent to us on the second day. Breakfast was decent as well, nice selection but nothing special. We were there during the slow season so that may be to blame. They have an onsite masseuse that charges good rates comparable to the street side massage parlours. They also offer a shuttle service to the airport which was well worth it since the airport is a ways away.

All in all Krabi is a paradise. No matter where you stay you’re guaranteed to have a blast. This hotel was under renovation during our stay so it may be better in a few months.

P.S. Make sure you book an island tour while you’re in Krabi, it’ll take you to Phi Phi and surrounding islands that are jaw droopingly beautiful. You can book the tours along the main road adjacent to the restaurants and stores. Pictures soon to come!

Room Tip: Ask for a beach front room, it'll cost a bit more but it's worth it.

this resort will be nice when the building work is finished (late 2013).

its a spacious resort. The rooms, pool, restaurant and reception area are all nice.

the beach is not good for kids. its a shell beach (not sand) and the water is quite eratic. Ao Nang itself is not one of thailands better resorts. its packed with 'indian' restaurants and tacky souvenir shops.

Room Tip: the resort is quite spread out so choose a room near the pool or beach if walking is an issue

Krabi Resort is located near the end of Ao Nang's main street right on the beach & next to a string of great restaurants. The staff were really friendly & helpful. Wi-fi wasn't available in our room on the side of the mountain but was in the front lobby area. Our room was spacious, clean and had a lovely view of the hills from the balcony, a flat screen tv, air conditioned & writing desk. The resort is undergoing extensions so will be interesting to see later on. The breakfast buffet was very nice & again the staff were all smiling. We enjoyed the pleasant walk through the gardens along the beachfront to go to breakfast each day.

stayed here for two weeks, and were satisfied with everything. allthough we had issues with the toilet drain the first day, but the staff quickly fixed that. close to town and all activities, i highly recommend taking a long tail to poda island for a day trip. but go early before all the speed boats packed with people show up.

good breakfast at the hotell, and very polite staff, calm and nice. also the private beach is nice. but for snorkeling or swimming, go to poda island.
