We were really blown away with this hotel and our stay here was the highlight of our entire trip to Thailand. We were on our honeymoon and stayed in the Jacuzzi villa with the hydro pool. It is the only room on the resort like it and it was definitely worth every penny. It was actually less expensive than some of the nicer resorts in ao nang which would not hold a candle to this place. I really can’t say enough positive things, it was perfect!

the service was outstanding and most of the staff spoke very good English, we particularly enjoyed chatting with Mr. Ya at the restaurant as well as the director of operations (who offered to have lunch with us off the resort at an authentic thai restaurant).

Our room was the nicest room we have ever stayed in, with his and hers sink area, large living room, kitchen (complete with coffee maker and rice cooker) large terrace and private plunge pool. The room is supplied with a beach bag and beach towels, toiletries (toothbrush and toothpaste, vanity kit, etc.) and even bug repellent lotion (which we didn’t need). The terrace was not completely private, the main walking path was nearby and people could see us on our terrace, but there were some gardens that provided privacy and it is a small resort, so there were not many people walking by or looking in.

The food was very good and the beach was nice and very quiet.

You can rent a private long tail boat to hong island right off the beach (hong island is very close to the hotel, much closer than from ao nang), and it is much less than booking through a tour company or from ao nang. Highly recommend for a couple looking to get away to a small luxury resort away from the crowds.

The hotel is located in a small town which provided a nice selection of restaurants, minimarts, and a travel acency.

At the end of a long trip to South East Asia we stayed here. The entrance from the road is not too inspiring but once inside the hotel it is terrific. The owner has intelligently laid out the hotel so that even when full you do not realise that it is full. The separate rooms/chalets do not overlook one another, they all have a covered lounge outside where you can relax in private. The rooms are beautifully furnished with a subtle bathroom behind the bed, with a choice of bath or shower.
The pool is large with the beach in front is a private area at the end of a long beach which no one realises is there, so there are no passing tourists. However you can stroll along the beach for along way, even visiting other hotels and restaurants f you wish.
The staff were always willing to help and were competent.
We ate there a few times in the evening as the setting was good and the food well prepared.
All in all well worth the visit, we really recommend this hotel.

We stayed from 31-12-2012 to 5-01-2013 on our honeymoon. Very friendly staff, making every guest feel special, excellent massage and very peaceful and beautiful setting. The only hotel of the area with local character, not like the other big, impersonal hotels with many rooms and without personality. A perfect getaway from hectic lifestyle where you can trully relax in every way. Perfect organization on New Year's Eve dinner. The restaurant could have a bigger variety of european dishes for people who do not eat thai food, but it is not a serious problem.
I would go back again!!

the first meeting with the nakamanda staff was at ao nang pier. rujii, their bell boy and driver was so forthcoming, that we fell in love with the nakamanda right from the start. the transfer was complimentary and we were offered water and a cold towel to refresh. the staff were all smiles, very helpful and much more observant and friendly than in other 5 star resorts we had stayed at. the rooms are spacious and well designed. you can tell that the nakamanda isn't brand new, there are a few nicks in the furniture and some spots on the wall but nothing major. only the air-conditioning was pretty loud. the pool is very big and great for swimming. the gym is not state of the art but sufficient. the breakfast is plenty, only the display is a bit dated. for lunch and dinner there are other options besides the okay restaurant. there's a place that starts with a "b" (i don't remember the name) right across from the resort which is very cheap and offers good thai food. also good is "the terrace", a few minutes walk from nakamanda. both restaurants are very simple and on the kitsch-side. altogether nakamanda could use a minor face-lift, but the great staff, the large pool, the possibilities around it (take a longtail to railay beach) make up for that. there's also an hour of free sunset-drinks and snacks on friday nights :)

Great pool, wonderful spa, amazing sunsets. The beach is great for walks not so great for swimming as there are too many rocks but takes nothing away from this boutique resort. The staff is super friendly and very accommodating. The wifi really is free not just for an hour as in most resorts today, and available everywhere even the pool side. The breakfast is a bit limited but i would return. For those not looking for a nightlife or shopping this resort is in a really quiet part of Krabi.

We stayed in nakamanda over Christmas. We were so impressed with all aspects of the stay. The resort is described as a small luxury hotel, the rooms are all very private and set away from each other. The standard of customer service was exceptional; the staff could not help us enough. We had a drink with the owner on boxing day, which reflects the small, non commercial aspect of the hotel. The restaurant food was very good and eating our breakfast on the beach, looking out to the sea can not be beaten. The spa was lovely. Internet connection throughout the resort was essential to us over the Christmas period and it did not let us down, the connection and speed was excellent. we used the kayaks one day which was fun and went to hong island another day, which was good to see but quite busy. We went to krabi town one day and were hugely disappointed....it's not worth coming away from the hotel!


If you want a busy action packed holiday, this is perhaps not the location for you but if you want a peaceful, quality hotel, this is the place for you. Can't be beaten.
