[Krabi, Thailand]: The Endearing of Aonang Villa Resort for a Perfect Gateway
I was in Krabi back on April 2017 for my birthday trip. If you are new to Krabi, making decision about where to stay can be a very tricking with option of staying in Krabi town, boating to one of the island or to stay in Aonang.
For me, Aonang is a perfect place because everything was here. The beach, the restaurants, travel agencies, ATMs, motorbike for rents, but maybe not the sunset as I didn't get any during my latest trip there. Aonang Villa Resort is one of my favourite hideaway and its located in the heart of Aonang city. The resort is just a 100 meters from the beach, the main road on the other side with shops and stuffs.
We flew to Krabi on the first flight from Kuala Lumpur and arrive to the hotel as early as 9AM by hotel pick up services which cost me THB700. As soon as we arrive, the friendly reception staff had welcome us with 'Sawadeekap' and served us with welcome drinks. We are so lucky as we were travelling on weekdays and so there are many rooms available for us to early check-in. Its was even better when there are no additional charges for that.
We booked the Deluxe Twin with Garden View for four nights. The room was very spacious with 2 single bed, big balcony, good size flat screen TV and a spacious bathroom together with bath up. I could say the interior decoration was very oriental with a typical mosaic flooring, cream colour wallpaper and minimal style wooden balcony. Importantly, the bed and pillow was good which can assure that I will have a good sleep, indeed!
There were a weird point when the resort prepared their guest with cotton bud on the pillow and we only realized the function at night after we shut down everything. The airconditioning can be a bit noisy I think, and if you are really looking for a dead-quiet sleep, the cotton bud will play it role.
However, there are more reason to love this resort. Waking up in the morning, the buffet breakfast is ready for you at the cafe next to the beach. Eventhough the choice of foods maybe not really much compare to other four star resorts that I had been visited, I think it was acceptable. There are some local delicacies, egg section, the toast, juices and stuff.
