“Big and beautiful resort in Ao Nang area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The place has a great design, it's probably one of the best decorated resort in Ao Nang area. The size of the resort is quite big compared to others in the same area. This resort also offers a really nice view of the cliff.
This resort is not that far from the beach. It's about 10-15 mins walk. However, there's tuk tuk to take you to almost every where. They are usually found outside the hotel with fixed price.
The room is clean. It also offers you a huge bath tub inside with an outdoor shower. Both of them are really cool. Their amenities are average.
The service from the staff is great. At the breakfast, I noticed there were a lot of family with young kids, one staff really took extra care of the small kids and played with them so the parents could enjoy their breakfast more.
One thing that bothered my stay was, the noise from the connecting rooms. I stayed in a superior cottage with connecting room with another family of young kids. The noise can easily pass through that door since the room is a bit small, you can hear them cough clearly. If you are not traveling together, this could really be disturbing.I asked them to change the room , sadly it was full since it was a high season. I stayed there two nights, I didn't get a good sleep at all.
I'd recommend this to the family who are looking for tropical resort to stay.

Room Tip: Go to Nopparatara beach for good Thai food.

I do not understand the poor reviews this hotel is receiving. It is absolutely gorgeous and a terrific value for the location and atmosphere. I would certainly stay in the private villas, for which we paid 5500 THB in high season. The view of the lagoon is necessary, and worth the price. The setting is amazing, with a cliff as a backdrop. It is also just 500 meters from the beach via a trail. I could not be happier. Yes, there is an outdoor, Bali-style cold water shower, but this is abundantly clear through a little Internet research.

I stayed at the superior room for one night. If you don't mind not overlooking the sea, the location is great, in the middle of the Ao Nang beach road, with the breathtaking hill bckground. The room was spacious and comfortable, with own verandah. Breakfast has enough varieties. Worth the price paid for.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in their 3rd floor Superior room last week. We like the room that we stayed. It was very spacious, bright and clean, although there were some little ants crawling between the room door and the bathroom. Everything in the room was functioning well and the staffs were quite polite and friendly.
But the exterior of the resort, be it the walls of the buildings and cottages, the walking pathment, the bridges, the plants, the pond/lagoon, the stairway to the breakfast cafeteria..etc all require some facelift or maintainence, they looked either jaded or were not even completed.
The location is good enough although not right in front of the beach, it is only a 3-5min walk from the back door and shops/restaurants are also just outside the resort.
A lot can be done to make the resort better as it has great potential. The environment of the resort looked like an unfinished work or not well taken care of, it's really a pity as we like the room that we stayed and the location.

we stayed here for 4 nights early november in a villa-bungalow,delux or superior i think it was classed as.
the staff were very good and although the bungalow-villa was quite ok,you could not really say there was much wrong with it,it was well worn and started to look a bit jaded.i also think our room had not been used in a while and it was quite dusty on the 1st day.
overall the whole place has the feel of a resort that i am sure 6-8 years ago was lovely but it is definately a bit tired and run down now.paint peeling of wall,chunks of concrete missing on walkways,wooden stairs that didn`t look very solid etc.
the pool area and the view from the pool is very nice,once again,furniture a bit passed it`s best..
the location 100m from downtown ao nang is impossible to beat.
overall a tired resort that with a good investment could get back to deserve the money it charges,overpriced.
also the flies around the jam-butter at breakfast was enough to put me off toast for those few days.

Room Tip: we had a superior bungalow or deluxe,nice room but bit dusty and paint peeling and cracks starting t...

The Peace Laguna was probably a really luxurious place to stay 10 years ago. I think that's the last time anything was repaired or updated on the grounds. Three of us stayed in a bungalow style room and the view was very pretty from our room with the water and cliffs. There are also multiple swimming pools. However, the grounds are just a mess with overgrown plants and weeds everywhere. The place could really be a lot better with some landscaping.

The room itself was just ok. The beds are extremely hard and all of our towels were stained. They advertise an outdoor Balinese shower but there is no hot water. Inside the bathroom there is a bathtub which we all ended up using and just spraying ourselves with. After the initial sulfur smell from the tub we made do. There was also a serious ant problem in the bathroom so the rooms definitely need to be sprayed. Housekeeping comes very late in the day and doesn't throw away a lot of the garbage.

Wifi is only in the lobby area and very slow. The included breakfast is good and there are a lot of options. This hotel has serious potential if the owners would only take the time to spruce it up.

Room Tip: Choose one of the bungalow style rooms to get the most privacy.

Not worth it's money! The website photo's shows heaven on earth, you will get a dark room which is really out-dated. We had booked for what they call exclusive private lagoon villa's. No inside shower, the out-side shower was only ice cold water with a floor that wasn't cleaned before or between our stay. The jacuzzi took 1 hour to be filled! The furniture in the room was filty or broken.
The outdoor terrace floor was overall broken.
The dissappointment also continues outside the room: the pool had a temporary external noisy filter which has been there since eternity, the pool cellar was always open, which was very dangerous with a kid (we closed it daily, but they re-opened it afterwards).
Breakfast serves food, but not tastful at all, sometimes just bad.
Reception and management is not helpfull, staff has hardly knowledge of the english language.
We had booked for a week but left in the middle to a better hotel in the phuket region.
Only positive point: a lush tropical garden with lagoon and an exquisit view on the chalk rocks of the Krabi region.
They have gold in there hands to make this place a goldmine, but with the current attitude it will go the opposite way.
