Peace Laguna Resort Krabi Review

Peace Laguna Resort is not a lively hotel so if your looking for a bit of peace and quiet away from the noise then this hotel is for you.

The hotel itself is a 3 star as there is no spa or fitness center but it is comfortable though not luxurious.

Be forewarned: some of the hotel's rooms are a little tired looking -currently undergoing upgrading works.

Peace Laguna Resort is five minutes walk to the beach and there are lots of shops including Mcdonald's,convenience stores, pubs and restaurants.

Tucked away down a side street away from the crowded main street, noise and traffic.

What so unique about Peace Laguna Resort Krabi?
The resort is quiet and framed by spectacular limestone cliff; really gorgeous.

It is very nicely located in the heart of Ao Nang but you would not know it because it's very secluded. Easy access to beach and all the restaurants/tours in Ao Nang.

There are 5 types of accommodation in Peace Laguna Resort.

Standard Room

The standard rooms (36 sq meter) are situated in a block complex. The block accommodation is very basic but serves the purpose for a cheap short stay.

Do not be deceived by the pictures above, the standard room need some serious refurbishment. Although it has well-functioning air-condition and good water pressure, it is highly recommended to opt for rooms (superior) in those new buildings which are spacious, modern and of very high standard.

Superior Room (new superior block)

The new addition superior complex features low rise units with common walls. The back section has a lift and is four storey high and the front section had no lift but has only 3 storey.

Ask to be put on the 4th floor as these rooms (53-59 sq meter) have the best views of the lime stone cliffs.

Deluxe / Superior cottage

Deluxe Cottage refers to the top level of the cottages and Superior Cottage is located on the ground floor.

The rooms are large, approximately 70 sq.meter. The beds are firm or a bit "rock" hard, some of you may find the beds to be uncomfortable.

The bathroom had a large double jacuzzi big enough for two person.

Open-air "Balinese-style" outdoor showers which looked fabulous. Note that outdoor shower does not have hot water, which takes a little getting used to.

How much for a Peace Laguna Resort Krabi room?

Depending on what type of room you stay

  • Average room rate USD 63 onwards per night for Standard
  • Average room rate USD 101 onwards per night for Superior Building
  • Average room rate USD 112 onwards per night for Superior Cottage
  • Average room rate USD 131 onwards per night for Deluxe Cottage
  • Average room rate USD 149 onwards per night for Deluxe
  • Average room rate USD 192 onwards per night for Private Cottage

Biggest gripe:

  • worn out grey towels
  • breakfast is a bit bland for a resort. While there was a reasonable range of options on the Western style buffet menu, you have to compete with the insects as there are no proper cover
  • standard rooms in the main building should be given a makeover. They look jaded and as if frozen since the 1980s.

Thumbs Up:

  • majestic view of limestone cliffs with scenic settings

Special tips:

  • Private Cottage. If you can ask for cottages 1106, 1107, 1108 or 1109 - these are in the middle of the resort and within a few steps of the best pool.
  • room 2209: fantastic view of the mountain while showering and also from the front door
  • Book the new superior room in the front block so that you can view the stunning karst-limestone mountain which separates AoNang from Railey
  • drinks are pricey so it's better to pick up some beers or pre-mixed drinks from one of the many 7-11 convenience stores in the main street and store them in your fridge.

Is Peace Laguna Resort Krabi worth booking?

Certainly not the five-star luxury resorts you would expect, but simply good enough for a 2-3 day short stay.
