“Great Location, Fantastic Host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

The bungalow's are basic but very clean and are located in the centre of Aonang. They are very good value considering the location. It is off the street so it quiet and safe. The beach is a five minute walk from the hotel, which was great. The host Ismail was fantastic, very insightful and went out of his way to help us. He gave us so many excellent recommendations on where to eat, tours and where to visit in Thailand. He organised tours for us for a much lesser price than the ones we had seen advertised. We could not have asked for a better experience on our first visit to Krabi. If I return to Krabi I will definitely stay here again.

I checked in three days ago and this is the first time I have written a review. There are two reasons for this. The first is simple, Anawin Bungalows is located in lush, tropical surroundings, but close to everything Ao Nang has to offer. Near the action but just far enough away (no noise).

My second reason for 'entering the world of TripAdvisor reviews' was because I was dumfounded by a recent 'post' which concluded that this place was 'terrible'. All i can say is that there is no sewage smell in my room, shower works just fine, a/c good too. The owner has been extremely helpful, sorted my ride to Penang no trouble.

So what prompted the last review? Obviously something didn't agree with their plans. All I can say is that Anawin Bungalows have 'agreed' with my plans. Would the last reviewer like to volunteer the whole story.

Do not stay here, everything is old warn out or broken, the toilet does not flush, the place smells of sewerage the bed is broken. Do not pay in advance. Once you see through the owners friendly facade you will realize he just wants your money. We paid $35 for a $15
room no breakfast.

Got lucky enough to get a room walking in due to a cancellation! We're only supposed to stay for 2 days but ended up staying for 7! Moved rooms a couple times but they made it work so that we could stay! Great staff and really friendly manager, willing to help out with anything, booking tours, further accommodation and transport!
Very close to Main Street and beach, but secluded and quiet at the same time! Bungalows are nice and big totally okay for the price! Would recommend!

Anawin Bungalows delivered on everything it promised through Booking.com - secluded but close to the beach, restaurants, shops and so on. Beautiful green and peaceful surroundings, attractive Bungalows, air-con, fridge, free wifi and complementary water. The room was nicely decorated, clean and spacious with a private balcony. The proprietors were extremely helpful for example by organising a last minute cookery course for us as well as giving us a lift to the airport at the end of our stay. A basic breakfast was available. My only complaint which is relatively minor is the fact that we agreed on paying 400 baht for the airport transfer only to be told when we arrived that it was 500, which I thought was a little cheeky but forgivable considering there were no other problems during our stay.

friendly manager nice and quite place in middle of Ao Nang.
The bungalow is clean, quite and big enough for 2 people.
Just a bit walk and we are already on the main road of ao nang and some minutes more we are on the beach. The bungalow stil quite in the night.
The price is ok for the size of the bungalow.
I can recommend every one for this price.

I have visited Ao Nang several times and I almost hesitate to tell you about Anawin Bungalows because it is a fairly small operation and maybe we will have a harder time getting a bungalow the next time we go, should we be blessed enough to be able to visit again. Excellent value for the price (we paid 600 baht) and a lovely family atmosphere. The fan bungalow included a fridge and tv which we did not expect at all. The location is absolutely central and two minutes from the main drag, but you would not know this at all as the space is so quiet and peaceful. Ismail was a wonderful host and we really appreciated that he got up so early to give us a ride to the airport personally...certainly above and beyond. Loved it.
