We went on our honeymoon to the resort and stayed for 6 nights. The resort is located at a secluded beach, Had Yao and has a private beach just outside your rooms. Though it may not technically qualify as a "private" beach, it is for all practical purposes since there are very few tourists in Hadyao. The resort is fabulous and made even more special by the staff. Thanks to Eve, Teya, Matt , Poo and the staff at the restaurant for making our stay special. We stayed at a pool villa which had a private pool and the door opened into the public pool and the beach. The perfect place to have your morning cup of tea. we went for 3 trips, all of which originated at Ao nang, 4 islands, Kayaking (dont miss it.... its a once in a lifetime experience) and Phi Phi islands trip. The hotel arranged for a drop at Krabi Town from where the tour operators picked us up. Though the drop to Krabi town was expensive, we didn't mind it since we were out to enjoy and have a good experience. It may be different if you are looking at a backpackers trip.
Also don't forget to take a ride down to the village on the bicycles that the resort provides. You go left from the resort and a couple of kms down the road you also have a nice small joint for seafood. We would definitely love to go back and experience the warm hospitality of the staff at this lovely resort.
