Arawan Krabi Beach Resort
Ranked #60 of 309 Krabi Town B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 24, 2014

So, if you are looking for pristine beach and amenities of a 5 star hotel-forget it.
If you look for a cheap "upscale dormitory priced room" with NO service except the laundry and shuttle from resort to ao nang-it's a good option.
A bit depressing if your plan was to rest at your resort.

Think the place looks a lot better in the pictures than in reality, and too be honest don't think its worth the money. Was my first time in Krabi so didn't really know the area just booked what I thought looked good. Bit too far from any nice beaches, pool ok but poolside bar and restaurant not very good. They offer a free shuttle to Ao Nang which is a positive. Staff were ok, was a bit disappointed that all 20 tv channels were in Thai, which I thought was a little strange as most of the other guests at the hotel were either westerners or Chinese (it was Chinese new year), ie not Thai speakers...think better value can be found.

Nice place but a bit over priced. We stayed at the Honeymoon suite for couple of nights, the room was clean and big with nice balcony facing the sea, in front of the balcony you will find the so called private swimming pool but don't go raising your hopes high for an early morning swim since the pool is no more than a tub 2 by 2 meter long, cold and not that clean (saying the least) we even sow a small frog taking a dip and a 1.5m snake who felt like passing by on the edge of the swimming pool. The resort itself is clean, spacious and quiet, located around 10 min drive from the noisy busy touristic area in Ao Nang (free shuttles are available from the resort and back every two hours). The breakfast which was included was super basic, although the coffee was surprisingly one of the best we had during the trip. The staff were nice, polite and made a genuine effort to give a good professional service.

We wanted a relaxing place with ocean view. So we had it :) beautiful garden, swimming pool ( we were swimming during the night and you had the feeling of "infinity" because the ocean was just in front of you) clean and spacious rooms. They have shuttle to airport or to Ao Nang so is easy to travel. As I said , for us was just perfect.

Arawan is a nice, cozy hotel out of town and away from all the tourist. We had a second floor room with a water view. The room was very clean and the bathroom was unique. The mini bar was always stocked and prices were reasonable. The bed was really hard but we found out later you can ask for a mattress pad. The beach was not a swimming beach yet still beautiful to look at and enjoy the views. The pool was great and the restaurant had amazing food at good prices. The wifi worked well in our room and they also have a business center with computers.

My favorite thing we did at Arawan was the kayak rental. It was about 200/day for a two person kayak. About a 45 minute ride was Riley beach and also numerous private beaches with snorkeling and private views. It was beautiful!
You can also rent mopeds.

The other great thing was the massage. They girls would come to your room and give you massage. It was reasonably priced and very professional.

We had a great time and would definitely return.

Don't forget bug spray!!!!

We LOVED our stay here! It's just nice enough to feel like a proper holiday but not so nice to feel like you're isolated from the Thai life around you. It's infinity pool overlooks an alcove of beach. The beach isn't really swimmable but beautiful and backs up to the gorgeous rock face of the mountain behind it. Honestly, I could have stayed there forever! And the food! Amazing and a bargain!

The place is not fancy and they don't wait on you hand and foot, but it's clean, quite and very nice and accommodating staff! We would def go back!

This is a 3 star hotel w
The staff were amazing. They were so friendly and tried really hard to accommodate all requests. It was over New Years and they had a thank you Dinner for guests which was free, that was really sweet of them. This hotel is peaceful and being a ten minute drive from anywhere busy was perfect for the time of year we went. (They offer a free shuttle 4 times a day) - any other time costs 200 baht which is about what the taxis charge. The room was large and comfortable and the mini bar items were reasonably priced. Our laundry was done by the hotel at a small fee and it returned the next day which when travelling for an extended period was convenient and welcomed. Overall, this little Gem was a perfect hotel for our trip and I would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Room with Pool is the best for space and comfort. Ask for any thing you need and it will be given t...
