Ao Nang Cliff View Resort is a one of a kind place, at least in the now heavily commercialised Ao Nang area. Its name belies its actual location, directly at the foot of the magnificent rocks that can in fact be seen from all over (a mere cliff “view” is quite common!). It’s a genuine retreat, a little “lost” in the greenery, but in fact within a short drive of the busy beach area. People who might like to stay here include those who like nature and a little peace and quiet, but still wish to be able to go out for a meal, drink and some shopping of an evening; in particular families who wish to avoid the noise and traffic near the beach, but still stay in comfortable accommodation with a swimming pool.
The 30 rooms in Ao Nang Cliff View are eclectic and, refreshingly, not laid out in rows, but placed higgledy – piggedly around a well tended tropical garden. Some are high, on stilts; others lower down; some are made of wood; others with red bricks. Most have the traditional Thai steeply pitched roofs and all are furnished with quality bed linens. Colours are natural (as with the newer teak wood Deluxe Suites), or fresh and modern (the tiled superior or breezy standard rooms).
Family options are plenty: the triple deluxe or quad family suites, or – for those who wish to have separate bedrooms – two connecting superior rooms.
Breakfast and other meals are served in the resort restaurant, near the reception area; there is also a massage pavilion nearby offering Thai massage; and a small gym with basic fitness equipment. There are plans to offer yoga and Thai boxing classes during high season (Nov – April).
The small swimming pool is a short walk up the hillside. Located right next to the cliffs, it makes for a refreshing swim. There is ample car parking for those who wish to use their own transport to get around; otherwise the reception staff can make sure you are picked up and dropped back after any organised excursions and there is also a free hourly shuttle bus to and from the beach area until 10pm.
Downsides of Ao Nang Cliff View are few. The main issue is that you are completely reliant either on the shuttle bus, taxis, or your own transport (rented car or motorbike) as there is strictly nothing within comfortable walking distance of the resort and the only facilities inside are a restaurant (no minimart etc.). This may soon change, however – a large new resort, Phu Petra, has just opened next door so more development may be on the way; and we will update if this is the case.
Ao Nang Cliff View Resort is located in a very quiet area, around 4km from the beach. There are a couple of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Otherwise, there is an hourly shuttle bus to / from commercial zone (shops, restaurants etc.) and beach area.
