Resort is a little tired but in a great location and represents great value for money!
Great massage hut in the grounds of the hotel and lovely inexpensive cocktails during happy Hour.
All you need for a relaxing break in close proximity of everything but certainly not
de luxe
We were upgraded on arrival without asking so that was lovely too!

We selected Krabi Resort through online research, as it was a beachfront resort and was within walking distance to the shops. When we arrived, we were pleased to see that the resort fulfilled our expectations as per our research. The views of the beach/sea from our rooms were breath taking and it was nice to walk 3 minutes to the exit of the resort, and find the entire shopping, dining and partying strip on your left and right

The bungalows on row A faced the beach, but in hindsight, the bungalows in row B might be better, for though they were behind row A, they still had an unobstructed view of the beach, and more privacy as there were many people using the path in front of row A. Also, if you are a late sleeper, you might be bothered by the noise of the long tail boats and speed boats that cross the sea in front of the resort just after 7.30am in the morning to pick up their passengers from the nearby restaurant/pier

The rooms are comfortably sized and clean with the bare essentials. You need to check against the list provided, the contents of the mini bar and items in the room and let the front desk know if something is already missing, or you end up paying for it when you check out. The housekeeping seems to replace the toiletries every 2 days, so make a request if you want more, though our request for additional pillows were never fulfilled. There are mosquitoes, so bring repellant

The reception was efficient and friendly during the checking in and checking out, but for a resort which has had so many prior guests, it would be nice if the staff could speak/understand English better. Mai from the tour desk is a super star, friendly, warm and efficient. She understood what we needed and ensure the packages and tours we wanted to go on, were tailored to suit our needs at a price which was competitive. The back office/front desk should improve their service though, as they never replied to emails sent for confirmation of the requested arrangements, prior to our trip, so we had to call instead to confirm. However, all the requested arrangements were fulfilled, which was good.

The food at the Boat House was average. Service was poor. The staff could not understand the egg orders or clear the plates fast enough, encouraging flies to converge.

The swimming pool is warm all the time but a decent size. The massage offered by the pool was good, though the level of service differs between the masseurs. The price difference between the massage at the hotel and outside was about BHT50-100. The good point is you can ask for the masseur from the hotel to come to your room.

Overall, the resort was sufficient for all the requirements - a pool, beach front resort, comfortable and clean rooms, some friendly and helpful staff and easy access to other amenities. Perhaps there will be more improvements once the construction is completed and little more maintenance work to the rooms and surroundings.

Room Tip: Rooms on Row A are the first row facing the beach. Try to select A3 onwards. A1 (and B1) is next to...

Right on the beach
The pool wasn't temperature controlled so was quite warm
We used the tailor on site which was excellent
We had massages on site which were excellent
Bar was rather pricy
Breakfast was ok, plenty of choice but flies were on the fruit
Good TV channels

although the resort are in renovation period, but it didnt affect the quality of the accommodation. There are a golf cart transportation vehicle standing by for transfer the guests within the resort (as distance between the luxury grand room to reception are couple hundred meter away).

Had a marvelous time there. Check in was fast and we were given our garden bungalow as promised in half an hour because the housekeeping was still cleaning it when we arrived. Nice quiet and private bungalow too eventhough the place was really fully occupied. Our major attraction to get a room here was the beach. We have a 7 year old sea loving boy. The only hotel to be on the beach in Ao Nang. Beach was fine, not white sand but nice and flat for children to bathe in. A plus is that the hotel has another access to a hidden beach. Only accessible for hotel guests. A beautiful cove beach but no one seems to bathe there. Food from the cheapest pushcart ladies selling fried seafood and Thai pancakes to restaurants are just outside the front gate and shopping too, for souvenirs. Plenty of tour agents to book tours for island hoppings and jungle trekking. Walk around and compare prices. Choose the one you trusted most. You can also walk on the beach as a short cut to the town, which is also fun. We were worried about the renovation as mentioned by other guests in here before. But for 5 days we were there the only sign of renovation was when our ride to the island hopping made a U-turn behind the reception building. It was peace and quiet all the time we were there. It is a big compound resort but once you are inside the bustle of Ao Nang town is left behind. Halfway during our trip our son fell ill. Vomitting whole night till he was really weak the next morning. And here where the hotel excelled most. We informed the reception, straightaway they gave us the address to the doctor's clinic. Within minutes a tuktuk arrived to send us there. Son had heatstroke from the previous day fun in the sun and was given IV saline. Upon our return they checked if he was fine. Which was very nice of them. The down side...breakfast was edible but the same everyday. But other than that we had a great time there at their beach everyday.

Stayed in the seaside bungalow for 2 weeks. Our front porch overlooked the sea, listened to the waves in early morning and at night. Beautiful. This Is a Thai resort which means don't expect western standard marble floors and state of the art everything. This place is a great value, Thai spirit with genuinely great amenities. Some if their amenities are getting a Little tired looking and could use updating but all in all it's still a great value and right on the water with their private beach. If you get tired of the beach they have a fantastically large pool that we used daily and often times the only one using it. Went with our teen age children and they loved it. Walking distance to town 5 min to shopping and restaurants
