What a pool
Ao Nang Villa is arguably the most grandiose of all the resorts in the area, with two huge swimming pools joining multiple dining options, a spa, playground, games room, fitness centre, wide lawns and entrances leading to both the main drag and seaside walkway.
This was one of the first resorts to open in Ao Nang, explaining why it occupies such a large and centrally located tract of real estate. While the sea-view pool is great, the larger zero-entry pool with swim-up bar, lagoon-style contours and frangipani-draped island is seriously impressive.
Rooms come in three-floor blocks, some with views of the pool or sea and others overlooking lawns draped in coconut trees. They’re available in eight different types, all well appointed with modern appliances, whirlpool tubs in spacious bathrooms and a classy, minimalist design punctuated by watercolour paintings of the sea. Each also sports a furnished terrace, some within steps of the pools. We’ve found the lower-end rooms luxurious and suitable for families, while a range of suites attract the honeymooners.
Prices are steep in high season but the low-season deals can be excellent. If this is too pricey but you’re set on a full-service resort, check out nearby Golden Beach and Peace Laguna.
