Looking for a place to stay in Ao Nang?
Even if Ao Nang is touristy and hotels and resorts are dominating, there are a few budget options in town :-)
There are a few budget options near Ao Nang beach, and some 5-10 minutes from downtown Ao Nang.
How is the standard? Well, you normally get what you pay for. If you're staying at a hotel, you'll have access to typical hotel facilities. Cleanliness varies, so read reviews beforehand if you're picky about where you're staying.
Price per night: 500 B
Popeye has received good reviews from backpackers because of the cleanliness and good value.
You get air-con, TV, safe and hot water for 500B! Such good prices don't come often.
Where: In front of Dream Bar
Price per night: 180-900 B (dorms cost 180 B per person)
Didn't stay here but Laughing Gecko is a family-run bungalow place, and it's known for friendly atmosphere and a good restaurant. Their huts are very simple and are made from all natural thatched bamboo.
They also provide buffet dinners (150-200B per person)! :-)
Where: Nopparathara Beach in Ao Nang
Price per night: 600-1000 B (fan rooms), 800-1200B (AC-rooms)
My simple fan room on the 1st floor was spacious, with attached bathroom and hot water. And one of the hardest beds I've slept on. I think the rooms in the upper floors are much nicer.
Something to think about...
If I were you, I would avoid a room on the 1st floor. There were ants crawling under the crack of the door, and onto my bed. I don't know if it was just bad luck or not...!
But either way, its excellent location make up for this. I could just walk right out, and the beach would be three minutes away!
PK Mansion also offers internet access, and they have a small restaurant serving Western breakfast and lunch (right by the entrance). I ate one breakfast here, and it was OK. But I preferred the better food at the food stalls, just across the road.
Price per night: 600-2000 B (fan/AC-room in the high/peak season)
Note: The hotel was packed when I arrived in Jan 2008, so I had to crash in an expensive room (1400 B).
If you're looking for some luxury, definitely try J Hotel! Comfortable, clean, large AC rooms with attached bathroom, hot showers, TV and balcony. And some rooms come with a hot tub (mine did!)
Downstairs you have (expensive) internet access, and the staff will gladly arrange tours. I arranged a minivan to Khao Lak through J Hotel, which was effortless.
If I would to stay in Ao Nang again, it would definitely be here!
Address: 23/3 Moo 2, Ao Nang Beach
