Scooter Hire - Ao Nang

Hi, does anyone know of a reputable scooter hire firm in the Ao Nang area? We are staying at the Nakamanda resort and spa in February which is approx 15 minutes or so from Ao Nang and we would like to go into Ao Nang on the evening for meals/drinks/massage etc and also have a bit of freedom to sight see etc.

Also, any good recommendations for food/massage etc?

Many thanks

I just returned my bike to Motokrabi. Called him at 0914137811 and he came and picked me up, shows me the bikes, and off I went. Left a cash deposit only, no passport. Good bike, well maintained, and with a full tank. Only good things to say, I would definitely go back there next time I'm in town.

We just got back from Thailand and had 3 days in Krabi in the Ao Nang area. Rented a scooter from Wan. It was small restaurant with a booth about a half block from our hotel the Ananta Burin. Cost me $200 baht for the day with no deposit, they asked for my passport and I told them "no way", gave them my license because I honestly don't care if someone keeps that, big deal as I can still get home. Went thru a full tank of gas just blasting around with the 2 of us on the bike, returned with zero hassle, the only thing they checked for was to make sure the helmets and lock were still under the seat.

If i'm going to be staying in Ao Nang and have 5 of us renting 5 scooters from MotoKrabi, can we arrange for the bikes to be delivered to us?

Also, is it possible to leave Singaporean Currency instead of Thai Bhat? 3000THB is equiavalent to approx. $120 SGD - don't want to bring home so much Thai Bhat.

Where exactly is WAN located at? Can anyone tell me a landmark to look for so that I can find WAN when we reach at around 1700-1800?

Motokrabi is the best choice you can make when renting a scooter in Ao Nang! We spent a lot of time trying to figure out which company to chose, and fortunately found information about Motokrabi on the net. Owner is a straigthforward Russian guy who speaks very good English. We paid 200 baht/day and he only requested 3.000 baht of deposit for a Honda Scoopy plus a copy of our passport (he only took a picture of my passport), while most of the rental companies would either request to keep your passport or a deposit of even up to 50.000 baht, which is ridiculous. The owner even picked us up at our hotel and gave me a ride back once i returned the scooter. Scooter was in very good condition including the tires (which is not very common when renting scooters in Ao Nang). Would definitely recommend him!
