Guesthouses and B&Bs
This exclusive resort has sprawling grounds that are filled with banyan trees and flowers, dotted with meandering ponds, and navigated by golf buggies. It’s arguably one of the best hunks of beachfront property in Thailand...
Mama Beach Residence
Phi Phi Don
Popular with French travellers, this is an uncommonly chic block-style hotel right on the best part of Ao Ton Sai beach...
Zen-like stand-alone abodes nestled in a garden shaded by coconut palms and laced with tidal canals at the north end of Hat Khlong Dao...
Phi Phi Don
Expect spacious tiled rooms with funky wood panelling, beamed ceilings, duvees, mini fridge, flat screens, built-in desks and wardrobes and private terraces. Those on the first floor spill right onto the pool. One of the nicer choices in Ton Sai.
Phra Nang Lanta
These gorgeous Mexican-style adobe-looking concrete studios are huge. Interiors are decorated with clean lines, hardwoods and whites accented with bright colours...
Pak Up Hostel
The grooviest hostel on the Andaman coast and ranked as one of Asia's three best, this converted school house (Krabi's first) features several uber-hip polished-cement 8- and 10-bed dorms, all co-ed and named for school subjects...
Krabi Ao Nang
Another sneaky, great Krabi-area hostel...
Railay Bay Resort & Spa
The amoeba-shaped blue pool here faces onto the best bit of the beach, so you can switch between salt and fresh water...
Aonang Villa Resort
A pleasant, no-frills, family-oriented seaside joint nestled in the shadow of a towering limestone bluff. It’s just across the street from an OK stretch of beach.
Sand Sea Resort
The lowest-priced resort on this beach offers everything from ageing fan-only bungalows to newly remodelled cottages with every amenity...
Sunrise Tropical Resort
Bungalows here rival the better ones on Hat Railay West but are priced for Hat Railay East – so we think this is one of the best deals in Railay...
Railay Village Resort & Spa
Posh bungalows with private hot tubs are spread throughout gardens of lily ponds, tall palms and gurgling fountains. The cheapest digs are set in two-storey modern hotel blocks, with bottom-floor rooms spilling directly into one of two pools...
Phra Nang Inn
A sprawling thatched explosion of rustic coconut wood, bright orange and purple paint and plenty of elaborate Thai tiles. There are two pools, and a similarly designed branch is across the road from the original...
Rantee Cliff Beach Resort
Phi Phi Don
The newest offering on Phi Phi was nearing completion at research time. Expect stylish bamboo bungalows with soaring thatched roofs, french doors opening onto private patios, gauzy mosquito netting and sunken baths...
Red Ginger Chic Resort
Fashionable and colourful with detailed tiles, large paper lanterns, and a frosted glass bar in the lobby. Large rooms feature elegant wallpaper, modern furnishings and large balconies overlooking an expansive pool.
The original Ao Nang luxury resort is ageing gracefully, maintaining quality rooms and luxury bungalows on peaceful, landscaped grounds, some right near the beach. There is an on-site dive school, a restaurant and a bar.
Baan Laanta Resort & Spa
Landscaped grounds wind around stylish wooden bungalows and a pool that drops off to a stretch of white sandy beach. The bungalows’ centrepiece is a futon-style bed on a raised wooden platform under a gauzy veil of mosquito netting.
Clean Beach Resort
A rather swish collection of new tiled bungalows with wide private decks, set across the road from the beach in a lush garden. Deluxe pool-view rooms are the priciest, but all are reduced by 50% or more during the wet season.
Golden Beach Resort
This sprawling, unpretentious resort dominates the southernmost 400m of Ao Nang’s beachfront – the best part of the beach. It’s made up of large hotel blocks and stylish white-cement, wood-trimmed bungalows arranged in garden foliage around a big pool...
Four floors of decent-value tiled rooms with air-con and private terraces. Expect fresh bath tile, satellite TV and wi-fi throughout. One of the better no-frills joints in town.
Railay Phutawan Resort
The super-spacious polished-cement bungalows highlighted with creamy yellow walls and big rain-shower bathrooms offer all the trimmings of a high-end resort. Tiled rooms in an apartment-style block are a step down in luxury, but very comfortable.
A castaway-feeling place with ever-so-slightly upscale bamboo bungalows featuring wood floors, simple tiled baths and wide verandahs...
