Krabi Aquamarine is a modern hotel with a white, minimalist design, located on the rapidly developing area along the road to the Thai boxing stadium behind Nopparat Thara Beach. It is a 250m walk to the sea, and tuk-tuks that will take you into Ao Nang of an evening (3 minute drive); the immediate area is rather quiet, although there are now a few bars and restaurants on the beach front of Nopparat Thara itself.
The resort itself is well laid-out, with all accommodation around the pool, and offers some of the only true family suites near to the beach area. With the 1 – 2 bedroom apartment units (all in low rise blocks or bungalows), you have the luxury of space instead of being cramped in hotel rooms designed for 2 adults only – though there are also these normal type of rooms available for couples.
Service is of the high standard set in Ao Nang Villa Resort (owned by the same family) and with many thoughtful touches, including free bicycles to get around.
