Red Ginger Chic Resort

Red Ginger Chic Resort

Stylish with a great pool

More on Ao Nang

We’ve always been weary of places with “chic” in their names but Red Ginger delivers as a fairly luxurious option with a tasteful Chinese theme and cushy rooms, including several that open directly to a fantastic swimming pool.

One of the first places you see after turning onto Soi 8, the four-floor hotel greets you with Chinese lanterns, Chinese-themed wall murals and a billiards table set between the bar and reception—all of it decked out in red. From there you can see the pool with its swim-up bar and a kids’ section.

Rooms come in a few styles and they’re all quite plush and equipped with ceiling fans in addition to air-con, soft king beds raised off tiles floors, the usual midrange creature comforts (safe, TV, fridge, desk) and more of the red lanterns and red floral patterns. We found the cheapest rooms solid for the price, but those with more cash to splash could opt for a deluxe to get cushioned seats on a semi-private terrace accessing the pool, or a suite sporting a loft design and Jacuzzi tub.

If Red Ginger is too pricey, the Moroccan-themed Alisea Boutique Hotel on nearby Khlong Haeng Road is a fine alternative with a smaller pool.
