“Stunning rockface by the pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Well located near shops, banks and bars and about five minutes from the beach on the scooter, the hotel is however pleasantly quiet as it stands back from the main road. Our room was clean and we found the staff efficient and not over-friendly. But in our opinion the most attractive feature is the magnificent limestone cliff rising out of the lush greenery at the back of the hotel. Krabi is surrounded by such cliffs but to see it so close -- as you pull the curtains in the morning or sip gin and tonic on the room patio in the evening, or as you swim or have lunch by the pool -- is an awesome experience and more than makes up for the small pool size.
We were rather disappointed by the buffet breakfast, which was not a big spread and mostly Asian, with a couple of cereal choices, limp bread and eggs cooked to your taste.

Room Tip: Room with the cliff view. Worth the price.

Travelled with my boyfriend to Krabi from 30/04/13 - 04/05/13. We booked a Deluxe room but was then upgraded to a Cliff View because the room that we booked (which is also the only room) is under renovation. But the upgrade is perfect! The cliff view was perfect. Service staff were friendly and helpful but their command of English is not very good but understandable. Rooms were clean, practical and comfortable. Wifi was stable and breakfast every morning was great! Swimming pool is small but reasonable. We did not visit the bar, gym or spa. Oh, try their In-Room Dining (IRD) food! They're sooooooo awesome! :D

A short walk to the beach around and lots of good local food and shopping around the area. Great location!

Down point for the resort is the dim lighting that leads to each cliff view villa. It can get pretty dangerous especially if it rains. Hopefully this can be improved the next time we stay here!

Superb resort!

Aonang Paradise is a brilliant resort -- clean, helpful staff, near beach, good price, and nice bar and restaurant area which looks out onto a dense marsh, with a huge rock formation above that which looks teeming with jungle wildlife.

The hotel is about 10 minutes on foot from the beautiful beach (one of the nicest and quietest we saw on the entire trip around Thailand) and the two main streets are lined with restaurants and bars (good Indian next to entrance of hotel, and a few doors down is Coconut Reggae Bar which is fun -- cover bands and cheap beer) so there is a good selection. There are ATMs directly across from the hotel, as well as the US chains (Starbucks, McDonalds, Subway) just down the road...

Staff were all so nice -- we were waited on hand and foot whether at reception, in the bar, or the restaurant. The two girls on reception also helped us when we wanted to book our ferry to Phi Phi (including hotel collection) and then later, the bus from Krabi to Bangkok.

The pool area is beside the bar and restaurant, with lots of sun-beds and umbrellas. Pool itself is a little small but you can still do a few decent lengths in it, and there is the option of getting a massage in a room beside the pool.

Overall a brilliant resort with great views and great service and a great location.

My first visit to Thailand and I stayed at Aonang Paradise Resort for 2 weeks August to September 2013. I stayed in a Superior Room which includes breakfast and free WiFi at the resort. The breakfast was great, always giving a choice of different foods and always great tasting fresh fruits! The pool area has a very nice bar with a view that just takes your breath away. Very beautiful view and seem to always be such a breeze there. The Resort is located only a 10 minute walk to the beach. The location is great and the hospitality of the employees there is excellent. Every employee goes out of their way to make you comfortable and to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They are always smiling and right there with menu and pad to take your order as soon as you set down at the Pool Bar. I could not have picked a better place to stay for my first visit to Thailand. I wanted to be close to the beach for the breezes and so I chose Aonang Paradise Resort for their location and was completely amazed that they were nicer than I had imagined! The Staff at Aonang Paradise Resort made my first visit to Thailand one of the best vacations in my lifetime. I will be going back! Thank you all at Aonang Paradise Resort!

We've stayed many times by the sea - so we were happy to have something different on offer here. The view of the cliff from the hotel rooms (deluxe bungalows) are beautiful. The pool and bar are beautifully located and you could sit there for hours and let things pass by. After being spoiled by Thai hospitality at the other resort (Ao Nang Cliff Resort) we stayed in, this place disappointed us a wee bit on. But the view and the rooms are just lovely! The breakfast could be better in terms of hygiene - there were flies buzzing around. It's sufficient though. Would recommend for the amazing views from the deluxe bungalow.

Room Tip: Even if you pay a little extra, spend at least one night in the deluxe bungalows. They have a great...

My partner and I stayed at Aonang Paradise Resort in September 2013 for two nights and really enjoyed this beautiful hotel. We stayed in a superior room for the first night and a deluxe room the second night, both rooms were really lovely. The WiFi was exceptional which was a bonus and there's a lovely bar and pool area with views over looking the cliffs. Staff were really friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the breaky, the fresh fruit and juices were my favourite.Thank you for a wonderful stay we will recommend this hotel to friends and family and would come back here again. :-)

Room Tip: All of the rooms are seem lovely so you should have any problems where your room is located!

I stayed in Aonang Paradise Resort & Long Stay in March 2013 for 4 days and my stay was pretty good and comfortable.

Resort itself very peaceful and staff is very friendly. I managed to checked in a bit early on special request. Altough the breakfast don't have too much to choices for vegetarians, but I really appreciate that on request we got 'Veg Fired Rice' in the morning.

Pros: It's very near to the Aonang Beach at a walkable distance and also surrounded by many restaurants and shops. Specially you and get vegetarian food in many restaurants.

Cons: Little expensive and less vegetarian food options.
