Ao Nang beachfront

We say "beachfront", but most of these places are actually set across the narrow road from the beach. The beachfront road gets lively at night, especially during high season, and it sees a fair amount of traffic.

Near Ao Nang Beach

These places are an easy three to 10 minute walk from the beach along the main drags. Although most are located in the heart of the tourist strip, many (but not all) are set back from the main road and stay relatively quiet. Everything from luxury resorts to thoughtful bungalows to dirt cheap flophouses are found here.

Inland

All of these places are at least a 10 minute walk from the beach, and some are a solid 30 minute hike. Many offer their own shuttle services to and from the beach. Some are located a good way east along the main drag while others enjoy quiet, scenic settings down the side roads -- it's in this latter category where you'll find what we think are the most interesting places to stay in Ao Nang. Regular songthaew services and cheap motorbike rental make these spots even more enticing.
