“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

I wish I could have stayed longer than the weekend. I only had a weekend between business in Bangkok and this was a excellent change in pace between the hustle of Bangkok and the beautiful serenity of Krabi. The hotel was relaxing and peaceful. The staff went above and beyond all of my expectations. The dinner service was a little slower than I was use to but I had nowhere to be and so I can't really complain. The chairs down on the beach are great to sit to relax or read and watch the world go by. This hotel is about 15 minutes from Au Nang beach. A perfect distance to be close enough to take a quick cab ride at night if you want to party but far enough to not have the noise and craziness. I can't wait until I can go back!!!

In august 2012 my family and I stayed at 3 different hotels in Krabi. Nakamanda was by far best value for the money. The thing we liked the most, was the design of the rooms. It was easy to keep the "bedroom" area clean and tidy, because between the room and the shower area, there is an area where one can keep the clothes and the luggage, good for customers and good for the room maid. The hotel has a very personal touch and we found all the personell to be most friendly and they did their outmost to make our stay a very special one.
The only little remark I have is, that they could serve more asian food alternatives for breakfast. The breakfast is too much "western" style for my taste.

We stayed 4 days there. I would sum up my opinion as such:
- pros
- excellent location: direct access to the beach - very easy to go to Ao Nang for a change
- possibility offered by the resort to some kayaking on the sea in front of the hotel
- we were very kindly upgraded to private pool villa by the hotel that was great
- staff very friendly and helpful
- hotel pool is really great

- cons
- breakfast quality and variety was really below average (worst we had in fact in 4 weeks) for a 4- or 5- star hotel
- food quality at restaurant was not stable: we had a great lunch and the next day dinner was not good
- rooms, even if large, are not very comfortable: we had no cold water at the tap, A/C was not working very well

In total, great resort - I would like to come back

This was our first trip to Thailand and our first week of the holiday, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was not disappointed! It was a wonderful experience, a real treat. Very relaxing with fantastic warm, friendly, helpful service with smiles and quality food and accommodation. It was definitely the best of our three hotels in Thailand, particularly for the attentive staff, good food at reasonable prices and the beautiful view and sea breeze. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

I stay with my family. We booked 2 bedrooms Villa, and 2 x Sala Villas.
For Room:
2 Bedroom villa has the best view (also the most expensive room), pool not large but still ok, Sala Villa, room is odd number XX1, is lower floor, so if want a better view XX2, is better, however, the stairs quite a lot....
Restaurant
small, breakfast service outcome very slow, but the food is ok, especially the fried rice, excellent.
Front Desk
Staff very nice and helpful.
Transportation
They have shuttle from Ao Nang beach, THB300 per person, Krabi Town THB500 per person. If you can drive, it worth it coz not too expensive. With GPS, its easy to get everywhere.
To Hong Island, hotel price is ok, if you book from Ao Nang beach, ask the boat leaves from your hotel coz its near. The Nakamanad can walk to beach when low tide, can't swim coz big wave.

Eat Outside
Thai restaurant, "Mother Cafe" very very good Thai restaurant, if you have a lot of people, better make the reservation of food. Very fresh, and mother cooks very very well.

Room Tip: XX1 is lower ground floor, XX2 is upper floor, 2 bedrooms villa very nice. Sunset view is wonderful

My husband and I stayed at this resort for two nights this August on our way to Koh Samui. We found every employee to be extremely welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Our villa was beautiful and clean, with a large patio and bathroom. It seemed private, and had a nice view. The quality and size of the villa for the price was excellent.

We found the pool and beach area to be very well kept and peaceful. The hotel was not crowded at all, which could be due to the low season and may have helped with how quiet and serene it seemed. Although some reviews said the beach is not the best, we thoroughly enjoyed the beach. The resort is set in a bay, and the beach felt so private. There were times we were the only people around. The water was calm and clear, although there are some rocks and the sand is not exactly soft and white. We had a great time feeling completely secluded while swimming and kayaking.

Overall, this was probably the highlight of our trip (we also spent time on Phuket and Koh Samui). If you are looking for some peace and relaxation, this is the place!

Staff were friendly, the villa was fantastic with 2 basins for him and her. Located away from Ao Nang beach so guests are kept away from the commercialised area of Krabi. Nevertheless, there is a thai restaurant next door and massage parlours just across the road. Lots of friendly cats around.

ps. the review by DiegoLuis raving about Sofitel is highly telling that it is biased and merely for the promotion of Sofitel.
