Ao Nang Phu Petra Resort is a boutique-style hotel in a stunning natural setting in front of the Ao Nang cliffs. With only 27 “villa” rooms in a large open space, the resort feels both intimate and very peaceful. The contemporary Thai-style rooms are above average size and furnished to a four star standard, with wooden floors, vaulted ceilings and oversized bathrooms, each with walk-in rain shower and separate bathtub.
Most of the rooms are laid out around the small pool, with one row set behind at a lower level, enjoying direct views of the cliffs. Phu Petra also has a few connecting units and suites designed to give extra space and convenience for families travelling together.
The hotel’s location, far out from the beach, means it can feel isolated (there is almost nothing in the immediate vicinity, or within reasonable walking distance); on the other hand, there is a free hourly shuttle to and from the shops and restaurants on the beachfront and the hotel can often feel like a welcome retreat from the bustle and noise to be found there during high season.
