Located in a three-floor concrete building above Raya Divers’ Krabi office, this is one of four inexpensive yet comfortable guesthouses all clustered around a concrete lot up the road from the beach and pier.

While the setting and location leaves something to be desired, you’ll pay up to twice the price for similar accommodation in central Ao Nang. Done up in a cheerful ocean theme with blue bed sheets and framed watercolour paintings of seaside scenes, the rooms are spotless and come with air-con, mini-fridges, TVs, small desks, safes, large balconies and squeaky clean wet bathrooms with hot water. The whole Raya operation is Scandinavian-owned and the guy down in the shop was helpful, especially if you’re asking about diving! The guesthouse is really only worth a look if you’re a self-sufficient traveller who prefers to explore by motorbike and doesn’t mind an out-of-the-way location in exchange for saving some cash on a comfy room. If Raya is full, check out neighbouring Pornthep Mansion or J Guesthouse, which have similar serviced apartment style rooms and are probably better bets if you’re sticking around for a while, simply because they tend to have more vacancies and are more open to negotiation than at Raya.
