Second stay here, we liked it so much last year we booked it for our honeymoon this year. The hotel seemed to have made several improvements over the last 12 months, food quality and choice was much better and there seemed to be more staff. We stayed in a garden view pool access room. The room was huge (can be...

We stayed at the Arinara for 10 nights in April 2016. The Arinara is ideally located at the quiet end of Bangtao main beach road with most of the resorts shops, bars and restaurants within just a few minutes walk. It is also directly on the beach with it's own walkway leading onto the sands. We opted for a garden...

We arrived before 9am and, understandably, our room wasn't ready. We were asked if we had eaten breakfast and when I said no, the reply was "That's too bad." (I would like to note that during our two weeks at the hotel we saw other travelers who clearly had arrived early like us, they had their bags with them, eating...

We had a very quick and nice check-in. 5 minutes, and we were in the room, we even got a free upgrade. Very nice. At the frontdesk we saw a poster saying "No reservation of sunbeds with towels". YES, finally a hotel that deals with crazy people reserving sunbeds with towels before the sun is rising. How wrong could we...

Arinara is very good and very clean hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean. You should book a room with private pool. It is so great! Pools are huge and never full.

This is my review of our holiday in Thailand staying at the Arinara in January 2017. The Arinara is a good clean hotel that is right on the beach. Rooms are spacious and kept very clean. We found the beds comfortable and the linen changed regularly. There is one thing that may upset you – there is a Mosque very...
