When seen from the not-so-charming road through Ao Nammao, Thip Residence looks more like a plain old serviced apartment building than the boutique hotel that it claims to be.

Enter the open-fronted ground floor, however, and the Buddhist art, quiet fountains and cloth lanterns tell you that this small hotel has something going for it. Spotless and well-appointed rooms are a bargain compared to what you’ll find in Ao Nang, with lots of space, good firm beds on wooden platforms, large desks, daybeds, mini-fridges, safes, LCD TVs and modern bathrooms. Attached balconies afford sea views from the front of the building, though these also might get some traffic noise. By the time we wandered into the garden area with an unexpected swimming pool at the rear of the property, we were seriously thinking about moving here from our similarly priced but inferior room down in central Ao Nang. Staff are straightforward yet friendly enough, renting out motorbikes and offering communal computers in addition to free WiFi. A cheap Thai restaurant is located next door and boats to Railay can be caught within easy walking distance, making this a convenient option if you arrive in Krabi late and want to catch a boat the next morning. We were quoted low-season rates when stopping by in mid March, though the hotel’s website says that low season starts in mid April.
