“Great resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Phu Petra-The best service we had in Thailand was at this superb little resort a couple minutes from town. Much like Phu Pi Maan, free transport was offered to and from Ao Nang. Phu Petra is a little more upscale, with its huge suites and setting at the base of a stunning limestone cliffs. Breakfast is included in the price and is more than adequate. The front desk is a fountain of knowledge on the area and can make just about anything happen for you.

We booked this 27-room boutique resort for our first visit to Krabi following the rave reviews on TA. The beauty of the setting dawned on us only at breakfast as we had checked in the night before when it was all dark. We were upgraded to a poolside room which was of similar size to the cliff-view room - spacious but it is true that bed-side lighting is too dim. The placements of the room's lights meant that we were staring at three bight lights affixed to the opposite wall when we laid in bed but had only one small bedside lamp to read from. The bathroom with large tub and separate shower stall was comfortable. Breakfast was a buffet spread on the first morning and subsequently became an a-la-carte "buffet" for the last two mornings due to low occupancy but it was alright for us. The resort screwed up our airport pickup although it was confirmed by email days in advance, we ended up getting an airport taxi ourselves - hence the room upgrade as compensation with the reception apologising profusely at check-in. To add salt to the injury (no pun intended!), our room service order of stir fried rice noodles (rad-na) was way too salty the chef must have forgotten to taste his cooking - but we were too tired from the hassled arrival to complain. The natural setting of this resort is its prime asset.

Dear Our Beloved Guests:

We thank you you choose us. We are very appreciated for things you enjoyed and perceived the value of your stay here. You mentioned our spacious room, large tub, comfort of separate shower stall, asset of our natural setting. We are very glad for what you loved it all here.

As read through the end, I note for some negative feelings upon your arrival and stay with us. Please give me a space here to hand over my regrets to you and of course I will give it settled as soon as possible.

1. Light

As earlier promised to all guests that we would fix it; as planned, it should be finished by now but some technical problem arise made it a bit delay. Plese extend us a time to make it fixed. For your reading friendliness, you can ask for a lamp at our front desk 24 hours. Not more than 5-10 minutes, our staff will get it for you.

2. A-Lar-Carte and Mini Buffet

It's true if our guestrooms occupied less than 10, we will serve our guests with A-Lar-Carte plus Mini Buffet. Still, there are varities choices of food to choose from the menu.

3. Salty Food

We discussed with our Chef already. He actually cooked really dilicious Thai dish but he said "sorry" for Rad Na he made it for you on that night. He did improve its taste for other guests who also ordered this menu.

4. Airport Transfer

For this one, I must deliver my "Deepest Apology" to you. It was really our mistake. The error fell into our Reservation staff that she forgot to print transfer information out. She examined all guests folio three days before guests check in but with her faulty of not printing it out made it an ineffective working process. Nothing to make an excuse but accept it. A matter like this was really what I discussed with team member before and seriously this one was a fatal error that she must take it to a quick improvement in her working steps. Hopefully, to upgrade you to Poolside Villa and offer you glasses of cocktail would make your first arrival not too bitter.

Please give us a chance to best serve you next time and very thank you for your kind understanding.

Best regards,

Had booked 7 nights but only stayed 3. The room was spacious bed a little hard , and it was clean . There were problems with the septics and there was a smell in the room.The lighting very dim in fact came back 1 night and it was pitch dark the lighting on the steps was very poor. The shuttle went to town every hour , but it is very isolated. I was very disappointed and moved to the Vogue for the remainder of my stay

Dear our beloved guests:

We are so sorry you felt a bit of disappointment while staying with us. I have been reported of your early check out and only reason you gave it to our GSA is "A bad smell in room" I feel a bit disappoint too that we have no chance to explain or to assist you. Without prior complains until you you made dicisssion. May I give this space to explain each of them.

1. A smell in room
We accept that some of our villas have a smell. We have history of them all and we fixed them already. The room you stayed, since opened, we have never been reported of any bad smell before. However, it's possible that our guests can feel a smell. Please Please inform us suddenly and we will straight to your room not more than 10 minute to fix it. (FYI: our technician went to your room after you checked out but they found it had no bad smell. However, this can be happened that a smell comes and goes so quickly. Our technicial already listed it to his worksheet and he will follow up a matter)

2. The light was very dim
I'm sorry for the light in room made you feel uncomfortable. We are fixing it. Actually, it supposed to be finished two months ago but with technical matter, this has been delay. I will be back to the matter and will find a way to fix it as soon as possible.

3. Isolated
We are not "on the beach" resort. We are very clear about this. We are far enough from a hustle-bustle but close enough to go to the beach. Our shuttle bus is available free of charge every hour and it takes only 5 minutes by shuttle bus to go to the beach. I must say Aonang Phu Petra Resort might not be your choice. We are a small 4-star boutique resort underline to a real relaxation and resting. Such that, no messy stuff or louder noise you will face while staying with us.

We are so sorry that we could not be your best or right choice . For everything you felt unhappy, we must again say "sorry". Thank you to give a space for us to explain. What we can do or serve you in the future, we are more than grateful.

Best regards,

As part of the second leg of our Thai adventure over the Easter of 2012 we stayed at the Aonang Phu Petra Resort Krabi. We booked this hotel as a bit of a gamble, one I’m glad to say paid off. It is close enough to the center of Krabi to ensure you enjoy all that the town has to offer, whilst far enough to take you away from the noise and hustle-bustle that can overwhelm you at times. Our villa wasn’t one that overlooked the cliffs, as some other guests had suggested you go for, but no matter. It was spacious and comfortable. My only reservation would be the lighting level at night. I like to read in bed and found it very difficult to do so even with all the lights in the room on. Next time I’ll take a reading light with me to attach to my book. But this is only a minor criticism. The breakfast was good, plenty of choice and very attentive service. We had one evening meal at the hotel, and were the only guests to do so, but this made it special, as the staff looked after our every need, the food was top class and the cocktails to die for. The swimming pool was just what you wanted after a long day our travelling to one of the many local islands on a long tail boat. There were always sunbeds and towels available, so no problems here. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel provided bus (a truck with benches in the back) which was a great way to ride into town. We decided to have a spa treatment at the hotel and are so glad we did, it was only a little more than you would pay in Krabi, but was done against the backdrop of the pool and the cliffs beyond. It also lasted far longer than the one hour promised. All in all I would certainly recommend the Aonang

Room Tip: Go for their cocktails, and try the spa (not at the same time though)

We have stayed there with my wife for 4 days. We were welcomed by receptionist, Nat and were taken straight to our room. He can communicate English fluently and explained everything in our room and the benefits that were available to us. This was fantastic service that we had upon arrival. Honeymoon Deco was set up which included flowers and elephants shape towels on the bed. Villa is a beautiful, spacious and well equipped, All staff were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. The area surrounding the resort is in the tranquil settings. Just taking free shuttle service to busy center only 3 - 4 minutes. We stayed here by knowing what to expect. I can understand that you guys may be disappointed if they expected direct beach
access and a sea view room, or a large sprawling resort with full facilities (gym, club, etc.) If those things are important to you, you need to look elsewhere, but you will miss a real gem for who want wonderful memories.

Room Tip: Hillside is very spacious

I just had our company staffs retreat at APPR. This is an awesome resort, very suitable for couple or company retreat. Spacious room as seen on website. Beautiful scenery!! We had games and fun time in the spacious dining hall, and near swimming pool. Staff service was great and they are flexible and prompt in service too! However the swimming pool isn't as fantastic, a bit small and simple designed. Nevertheless we had a great time there!
