Excellent Hotel by the beach Nov 21, 2013
Recently I had opportunity to stay at this hotel for four days. I really enjoyed staying here specially the last 2 and half days as it stopped raining at that point of time. Been to Phuket few times but never been to Krabi so was much excited.
Arrived at Ao Nang Beach from Krabi Airport by Taxi which was about 20 - 25 mins drive ( costed me 600 Bath) and then took a Long Tail boat to Railay Beach West it's about 15-20 mins ride to the hotel that is the only way to the hotel from Krabi / Ao Nang. The public long Tail boat charged me 100 Bath and 10 passengers (max) in a boat. landed in the water with my pants rolled all the way up until can't pull any further. Took my bags & bagpacks carefully so that they won't get wet. Walked through the beautiful beach and reception was right by the beach. Early checking in was not a problem at all, surprise to see the wide open specious room as well as the bathroom. I was happy to see that each room has a balcony attached with beautiful view. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful, also they have onsite tour operators assisting hotel guest even they did not buy tours from them.
This hotel got two swimming pools one attached with the beach and the other one was all the way at the back. Restaurant was right by the beach and sitting there you could enjoy the excellent view of the beach and long tail boat activities. I did not like the food at the hotel restaurant (taste wise) but perfect for having few bottles of beer and people watching. Breakfast was included with plenty of choices and a chef waiting to fulfill your specific order. This little island Railay Island got a large convenience store and few small ones, you could also buy beers and liquors and stock up in case you feel like Hotel minibar is draining out your wallet.
It was fun staying in the beach until late night and enjoy the music coming from the walking street bars which are by the beach as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
