A beachfront accommodation is what we need after days of partying in an island.  Bound for Krabi, Thailand, the chill side of a tropical beach scene is what we expected.  Fortunately, we were provided more than our expectations.

The limestone rock formations, parked long tail boats, the clear waters and the fine white sand devoid of tourists were the perfect beach front view.  We were at the best accommodation there is at Ao Nang Beach, Krabi and that is, the Holiday Inn Resort.

From the bus station, we were picked-up by the hotel shuttle van.  The ride en route to the hotel was scenic.  It was a typical tropical scene of aligned towering coconut trees and prominent limestone karsts formations.  Until the sound of the waves were heard and finally, we were settled for the next few days at our home in Ao Nang Beach, Krabi, Thailand.


We were assigned to different types of room accommodations that the hotel offers.  And I was assigned to the most basic of all – Deluxe Room, although the group converges at the Pool Access Room assigned to some in the group.

In a landscaped tropical garden, there are 173 well-appointed rooms and suites.  All these rooms and suites combine the very latest in-room technological services and facilities with a full range of comfort amenities: free wireless internet access, spacious private balcony/terrace, separate bathroom and toilet with walk-in rain shower and bath tub, comfortable wooden daybed, flat-screen TV with CD/DVD player, alarm clock with docking station, mini-refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities and in-room safe.

Though I was assigned to a Deluxe Room on a building quite far from the lobby and the rest of the group, the comforts of the bed cannot be discounted. I had a good night sleep and obtained the relaxation I sought for.  The vicinity was quiet as well and indeed conducive to relaxation.

We enjoyed the Pool Access Room though.  It was a perfect rendezvous for bonding, with its private terrace serving as the lounging area.  It is designed for couples actually but perfectly fits for a group as well especially if rooms are adjacent to each other.

The all-day dining restaurant of the hotel is situated at the roof of the resort lobby and is blessed with panoramic views over Ao Nang Beach and the waters of the Andaman Sea, offering a relaxing and chilled-out vibe.  Our complimentary buffet breakfast was served at this restaurant.  For guests’ to receive a delightful culinary experience, the menu includes a full a la carte selection, fresh seafood, exotic fruit juices and unique beverages. 

We were geared up for the day tour at the nearby islands of Krabi due to the sumptuous meal served.


One strong point of the resort as compared to others is its strategic location.  We could walk around the main shopping and entertainment centers of Ao Nang Beach and at the beachfront is the pick-up point for excursions to nearby islands, adventure spots, fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling.
