Name of Hotel Reviewed: Krabi Tropical Beach Resort in Ao Nam Mao (Ao Nummao)
Where: Ao Nam Mao beach on the way from Krabi town to Ao Nang Beach. Close to Fossil Shell beach.
What? Hotel with 15 rooms ground floor and 2nd floor rooms available. On beach, though the water is not great for swimming in – submerged rocks. There is a salt-treated swimming pool, childrens’ pool and jacuzzi with sea view. The rooms are all new and very clean. This is an ideal family hotel.
The real allure of this place is it’s proximity to Ao Nang by long-tail boat as you can walk to a pier that’s close and take a long-tail for just 50 baht to Railay beach for the day and take the boat back to the same pier when you return. This hotel is away from Ao Nang and the nutty tourist areas. It’s closer to Krabi town by 4 or 5 km than Ao Nang. It’s a generally quiet hotel. There is a pool and bar at the pool area.
This hotel is owned by a German guy and his Thai wife that has spent years in Germany raised there actually. Both owners speak English well. Staff – depends on who you get, but you’ll be able to get everything across that you need to.
Rooms are comfortable. You can have WIFI broadband (ADSL) internet access in your room and all over the pool deck area for 100b extra per day. In the lobby is an internet connected computer – free use for guests.

1. This hotel on the beach is a nice alternative to the crowded beaches of Ao Nang and yet it’s only 6 km away.
2. The hotel is relaxing and much better for families than singles looking to party as you’d want to be in Ao Nang and within walking distance to the bars if that’s the case.
