Being new to tripadvisor, you read many of the reviews and realise that everyone has differing opinions. My wife and I (and 5 teenage children) travelled to Ao Nang recently. We booked into a Resort on the main strip and decided it wasn't for us- a bit too touristy. I happened to find an advertisment for Krabi Tropical Beach Resort. Well Buddha was smiling on me this day and the Resort was just what we wanted. It was away from the hustle and bustle of tourist strips (about 8 kms) yet cheap enough to return when we wanted (20 baht by regular taxi). It is a small boutique resort with great spacious rooms but the pool and dining location was fantastic. It is right on the beach front with views out to the islands which you also enjoy whilst relaxing in the pool. There is lots of local activity on the waterfront with longtail boats travelling to the islands, the tide moving in and out and the crabs busy about their daily chores. Do you think I was relaxed? The staff are so helpful and the food was fantastic. The chef made me a dish one night which was a red curry chicken dish - well I was hooked. I ordered that dish every night of our stay. The chef even let me watch her cook the dish and Phad Thai. The resort truly catered for our family better than I could have hoped for. The owner Stefan was a great host and we enjoyed the late night drinks including the cocktails. The best part was that I thought the bill would destroy me financially - how wrong was I. Make your own mind up but we have travelled to several Asian countries and this would be up there as one of our favourite accommodation sites. You don't have to alway spend top dollar to find a piece of paradise.
