Ao Nang Cliff View Resort
Not to be confused with the lacklustre The Cliff Resort, the Cliff View offers simple bungalows surrounded by greenery nudged right up against a towering limestone cliff.

At these rates and in a truly gorgeous location, Cliff View boasts surprising extras like a fitness room and small two-tiered swimming pool that emerges from the trees to meet the cliff. The simplest wooden fan bungalows stand high on stilts under the shade of trees and have white-and-green walls to go with high-reaching gabled roofs. The interiors aren’t huge, but each comes with a firm double bed raised on a wooden platform, lots of screened windows, hardwood floors, a big front porch and even a small safe. The cheapest air-con cottages are similarly small and rustic, also a bit darker, and come with TVs and fridges. Superiors get you a big, fully kitted out room with tile floors, desks and large porches. Sprinkled amid tall trees and flowers are several hammocks to help you soak in the peace and quiet. The resort has a Thai/Western restaurant and, just as on our previous visit, we received a warm greeting from the staff. In peak season add 200-400 baht to the rates, which haven’t increased in several years. It's a long walk to the beach, but the resort uses its own songthaew to shuttle you there.
