Phu Pha Ao Nang Resort and Spa
Ranked #33 of 109 Hotels in Ao Nang
Reviewed January 23, 2011

Pluses:
Tropical gardens surround the bungalows
Breakfast buffet slightly better than average
Medium sized swimming pool in very good setting with adjoining bar and comfortable sun loungers.
Free transport into town (4 return journeys a day)
Some very cute kittens - delightful play
WiFi in room - reasonably fast
Safe in room
Efficient front desk staff that are prepared to solve problems (rare in Thailand in my experience)
Decent value for what is offered

Negatives:
25 minutes walk from town - some down an unlighted road - complex route to find the first time. No shops or restaurants nearby.
Room small
No desk or chair in the room
No comfortable chair in the room - there were two wooden benches on a small balcony.
Smell of bad eggs from the WC - it must leak
Little storage space in room
Some rotten wood in the bathroom
We had a connecting room and we had some noise from our neighbours.

Ao Nang is short of good hotels - especially during the high season. This hotel is OK but doesn't deserve the rating it currently has on TripAdvisor.

Lovely hotel in terms of layout, nice pool facility with a few sunbeds around it. Free shuttle bus into Ao Nang several times a day but only 10 minutes walk for those who want to burn a few calories! Noises from wildlife disturbed our sleep but we are very light sleepers so probably wouldn't affect most people. Average breakfast quality. Rooms spacious but musty. Free internet access. Helpful staff re. booking boats/trips.

really nice looking place, very quiet with stunning setting ...bit far from the strip and all the action but tuk tuks unlike phuket are pretty cheap if you miss the free shuttle from the hotel. make sure you get a mosquito coil if you frquent the jungle bar in the evenings or expect many bites! only problem we had was a leaking toilet into our bathroom from the room above us but when we reported it four people came and moved us into an upstairs room within 5 minutes...fair play.

Booked two double rooms at Phu Pha in peak season, over Christmas day. The price was half of the price of snazzy hotels popular with Thai tourists, while Phu Pha is actually a brand new (2-3 years old) resort composed of two-storey traditional-style wooden bungalows built around a pool in a lush portion of jungle.

It is located in the jungle just off the road leading down to Ao Nang beach - it's about a 20 minutes' walk to get to the beach, but the resort has a complimentary shuttle service which runs on a schedule. However, the staff is very helpful and arranged us the shuttle to the beach or any other destination (e.g. Nopparat Thara beach) at any time we wanted, and also had the shuttle pick us up with 10 minutes notice.

Hotel staff can also arrange tours and taxis, although at a slightly higher price than tour operators on the beach (but they were honest about that). There is also a reasonably priced 24-hour laundry service.

You definitely get the feeling of being in the nature and what's more we found it much better to be out of the hustle-bustle and the glittering (?) souvenir shops of Ao Nang beach. Besides, a lot of food options are available on the main road going to the beach.

The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and spotless clean, with two balconies on opposite sides of the bungalow. Prefer the upper floor. Wi-fi is available in the hall (complimentary). The buffet breakfast is very nice.

I definitely recommend this hotel to anybody who doesn't mind leaving overpriced "design" places to the new rich and enjoy the beauty and peace of nature in Krabi.

Beautiful new resort, you feel like staying in a tropical botanical garden. Very quiet. Rooms are nice and clean, beautiful wooden work. Staff very, very nice and helpful. Food in the restaurant absolutely delicious!
Only the wifi signal could be stronger.

I would highly recommend Phu Pha to others and definitely would like to stay again.

My friend and i arrived with the intention of staying for 2 nighs. It was so beautiful we made it our base for the rest of our holiday. The views were stunning and made relaxing by the pool a real treat. The staff were very very friendly and helpful. I would love to go back and stay .

Phu Pha Ao Nang was absolutely beautiful. It had a wonderful view of a limestone cliff face that was gorgeous to look at from the pool. The set up is great.. like living in a tropical jungle. Although the rooms were on the smaller size, they were comfortable and having there was no problems sleeping.

The staff were an absolute treasure! They were always kind and helpful. It is a couple of minutes drive into the main strip of Ao Nang, but the tuk tuk was always available for us to take us down.

Phu Pha was always clean. The food was delicious! I will definitely be staying there when I go back to Thailand.
