Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Ao Nang beachfront
This is the heart of Ao Nang, a long strip of restaurants, bars, travel agents, tailors, touts and the occasional hotel or guesthouse. It's pretty busy in the evenings here, at least in the high season with lots of passing traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular. If you are intent on staying in this part of Ao Nang, make the effort to stroll down the beach some distance to experience some semblance of what the area must have been like before all the above was built.

The Somkeit's grounds are so packed with foliage it looks like it just sprang up from the jungle, and amidst all the greenery is a beautiful infinity pool cum tropical lagoon. Paths winding through ... Read the full review of Somkiet Buri Resort and Spa.

Gets lots of repeat custom302 Moo 2 Ao Nang

Very popular, close to beachPO Box 25, Ao Nang
T: (075) 637 130; F: (075) 637 134
The Phranang Inn has definitely got character. We found the staff to be really easy-going and accessible -- a welcome relief from the 'too bored and too busy' reception we got elsewhere. The decor ... Read the full review of Phra Nang Inn.

Sea World registers on the budget radar with it's cheapies in low season, and it's reasonable high season prices. Also, all the rooms have TVs, if that's on your checklist. That atmosphere is nothing ... Read the full review of Sea World Guest House.
A low seson bargain247/12-15 Moo 2, Ao Nang
T: (075) 637 431-2; F: (075) 637 471
The lobby here is pretty low on atmosphere, and upstairs there's a cavernous, dimly-lit hallway that was sort of creepy, in a way. But we did find some decent rooms with good balconies that have ... Read the full review of P.K. Mansion.
Mixed rooms273 Moo 2 Ao Nang
T: (075) 637 591-3; F: (075) 637 359

Budget option247/6 Moo 2 Ao Nang
T: (075) 637 524;
One of the redeeming features of Ao Nang is that the accommodation market hasn't blackballed budget travellers, or exiled them to the outskirts of town. The Jinda is one of a cluster of budget, ... Read the full review of Jinda Guest House.Under 600B 2 votes Backpacker
Away from the beach
Both before arriving at Ao Nang beach and after leaving it there are clusters of hotels and guesthouses. Most of these places are within a 15 minute walk of Ao Nang Beach, but some are further away -- up to 30 minutes from the beach. Compensation comes in the form of generally quieter hotels and guesthouses with less of the racket from the bars and traffic that is prevalent on the main beach. The distance doesn't need make these places bad -- if you're eating on the beach a lot you'll probably need the exercise.

Not a bad non-pool option25/18 Moo 2, Ao Nang

A bit underwhelming88 Moo3, Ao Nang
T: (075) 637 637; F: (075) 637 777
This is the first one along on Moo 3 as you go up the hill. As luxury places go, we weren't exactly blown away. It's big, and impressive -- so much so the atmosphere is impersonal, and a little ... Read the full review of Pakasai Resort.

Cranky staff279 Moo 2, Ao Nang
