Chic, Thai-style boutique resort in a great setting
Phu PiMaan Resort (pronounced Pu Pee Maan) translates roughly as “resting place of the gods” and it seems the owner – an Ao Nang villager – has indeed tried very hard to make it a mini oasis in a desert of bland guesthouses. Thus Phu Pi Maan is located on a gentle slope overlooking the famous Ao Nang cliffs, and offers spectacular panoramic views from the infinity edge swimming pool at the centre of the property. Towering coconut trees have been kept on the grounds, and mixed with carefully chosen tropical foliage to create a lush garden.

The rooms themselves are spacious and tastefully appointed. They are divided into two categories; the (above average size) deluxe rooms and corner suites, housed in a 3 storey block; and beautiful 1 and 2 bedroom villas located around the pool area.

The resort facilities are equally impressive: there is a spa; a decently-equipped gym / fitness room; a library; and a reasonably good restaurant if you don’t wish to dine out. Wi-Fi is available, free of charge, throughout the property and the abundance of in room amenities make this one of our current favourite places to stay in Ao Nang. The only downside of the hotel – like everywhere in Krabi – is that English is not spoken very well; nonetheless the staff seemed friendly and helpful on our visit.

The romantic setting would make Phu Pi Maan an ideal choice for a honeymoon, or for any couples getaway. The generous family policy and large rooms make it an equally good proposition for people with young children. Also worth noting for Muslim travellers: the resort is Muslim-owned, so Halal food is served here, both for breakfast and other meals.

Phu Piman is located just over 1km from the Andaman Sea at Ao Nang Beach; most of this walk is lined with shops and restaurants. The resort also offers a complimentary shuttle service to the beach front, with return on demand.
