Ao Nang Sunset Hotel poolside

Ao Nang Sunset Hotel has a small but well functional pool with 8 sunloungers. Forget about getting a tan if you want to lie on the sunloungers - they're blocked by the hotel building and are always in the shade.

Ao Nang Sunset Hotel has lovely clean rooms with good air con. Great shower in bathroom however those staying on upper floor, the bathroom has no hot water supply as the water pressure is weak and shower dribbles out.

However it does not bother me because I have spent enough time on beautiful beaches in Krabi and I enjoyed it so much. forget about swimming in the pool :)

One of the minor grouse is that Internet access is not free even for hotel guests.

Ao Nang Sunset Hotel has a restaurant called Nanas (named after the owner of the hotel). It served wonderful Thai and International food including fresh seafood and is open to all. Every night it is very busy, so it was obviously very popular with great value for money.

If you are unlucky, you may get some of the rooms that are quite mouldy and has humidity smell. Maybe due to high usage and lack of airing, mould on the ceiling can be seen and very heavy smell in the room.
