I am writing this review while my family of 5 is still at the resort. We wonder how we can sleep for the rest of the night with the stench of dead rat in the room. To be fair to the management of this resort, we have been offered much help during the past 2 days so I rate it a 4 stars for service but a poor overall experience.

We are staying a total of 3D2N at this resort. We chose this resort out of several options due to the contemporary design in a place with scenic view and the excellent review on tripadvisor. When the reservation was made, i wrote an email to request for a room with good wifi signal for business purposes. We were told the signal will be ok where we will be allocated.

When we arrived on day 1, our deluxe cliff view room was the furthest away from the pool bar. None of my apple devices had a wifi signal, except for a samsung galaxy but signal was weak. The management sent in a staff who checked the signals using a windows pc and it worked fine after they reset the wifi. Her pc connection was ok, our mac OS poor connection and apple mobile devices no connection at all.

We requested for a change of room and the GM spoke to us. Her english was excellent and she understands our concerns. She kindly arranged a change of room to a deluxe room which was nicely done up and spacious for my family even without extra beds. The housekeeping staff set up the daybed with linens, comforters and extra pillows and we had a nice peaceful sleep in the 2nd room. There was a sliding window which we could open for a breathe of fresh air in the morning. Room 2: Spacious flooring, lots of natural lights in the room, clean, modern contemporary design. Too bad it was only available for 1 night and we had to change room on day 2.

GM spoke to us personally and informed our rooms will be ready before noon. We were offered help with our luggages during the move to room 3, back to the cliff view room similar to room 1 but nearest to the pool bar. We dropped our belongings and headed out to the beach. By late afternoon, we returned to our room to rest and that is when we realised the corner of the room near the king bed has a stench of dead rat. We seek help from the staff at the pool bar and the GM was called in. From the conversation, we guessed that the staff had been aware of the problem in the morning. Due to the resort running full occupancy, we have no choice but to remain in this room. We requested for them to leave a bottle of air refreshener with us and every hourly we have to spray it to rid the stench. Bad thing about this room is there are no windows, only a sliding door so we couldn't leave the door open throughout the night.

If you have been looking around the pictures of resorts in this area, you will find that this resort is outstanding due to the modern contemporary design in a backdrop of natural landscape. However, our experience with the wifi and room is a let down.

but might not be the best with the moblie device.
We are sorry regarding to your mentioned point and

A bit remote from the action of Aonang main street,yet only a 10 minutes walk away from the beach,restaurants and shops,this bungalow resort is perfect for relaxation after a hard day exploring the natural wonders of Krabi.
The staff makes you feel welcome from the moment you check in,the bungalows are simple but well-designed,the pool area and gardens are lovely ...the wifi works perfectly! What more can you ask from a very reasonably priced hotel? I found this place epitomizes genuine Thai hospitality.
I would go back and recommend it to all my friends :-)

it is located in walking distance around 10 min from the beach, away from huzzle and buzzle of Aonang street, which make it a great place to rest and recharge. Staff are friendly and helpful, and they always greet guess with genuine smile, which is the best thing to kick start your holiday mood.

A very nice hotel tucked in the center of Krabi! :)
Had a very pleasant stay here with my wife. Rooms were clean and nice and comfortable. Staffs were pleasant and friendly.
Beautiful view of the cliffs/hills from the pool side. Was really serene.
Breakfast was simple but was delicious.

I definitely come back to Krabi in the near future & would surely book a room here again!!

A Recommended hotel! :)

We stayed almost one week in the paradise resort.
Everything was perfect ! Rooms were big, comfortable kings beds, cleaned every day.
In rooms you can find safety boxes big enough for laptop, iPad and big camera...there is 3 kinds of towels for bathroom, pool and beach towels.
There is also everything for tea and coffee, 2 free drinking water very day...
Breakfast is good with fruits, rice,noodles, pancakes, eggs, bacon...
We spent a lot of time at the pool area which is lovely with a wonderful view on the mountains and a beautiful green tropical garden...
We really enjoyed having cocktails at the pool bar : mango juice, mojitos...
We had lunch every day at the pool restaurant which was about same prices as in the street and it was always delicious, we tried lots of dishes : pad Thai, soups, tasty appetizers....they also have homemade ice cream...and it is relaxing to have lunch around this quiet area instead of the noisy street (better to eat outside for diner) 
Staff was really nice, kind, smiling every day ! They all speak a good English. 
The location is good, about 10min walk to the beach and 5 to 10min to every restaurants.
We definitely  recommend this hotel.

Me and my husband went over on 26 Feb for 3 nights. Love the service from the staff, always friendly and polite:) the resort itself is very modern and chic looking:) even though the pool is quite small but i enjoyed stargazing at the poolside in the night, while listen to the buzzing of crickets or whatsoever.. while in the morning you can be greeted by birds chirping.. it is indeed something that can't be enjoyed in city:)

the location is another great thing we love about, 15 mins walk to Aonang Beach with lots of shops, pub, restaurants, spa, saloon.. and if going out in the night, there will be more choices when the stalls opened:) it need not be expensive to get a meal there.. we found pad thai with the price of 40~65 Baht, it is still delicious even though the portion might be small for a guy.. and we realise if we need to get groceries like toothpaste, potato chips, beverages it is best to go 7-11 than any other minimart coz the price can be of great difference: e.g. we saw a 500ml coke that was sold 20Baht at minimart while it is only 13Baht at 7-11!

despite the location it is still quite quiet in the night with all the 'happenings' along the main street:) oh yes, the WIFI there is good too! but the signal tends to get weaker when we're at the pool bar, but it works perfectly well in the room:) read from other travellers that the room has a sewage smell, indeed and we realise it gets better after we off the ventilating fan in the bathroom.. quite an irony when we thought the fan is to help us with a better ventilation...

overall it is a good place for a short getaway, with the great location we have saved a lot from transportation:)
