The Spectacular Aonang Fiore Resort in Krabi That Lets You Be One With Nature

Aonang Fiore Resort is a relatively new hotel, completely surrounded by nature 10 minutes away from Ao Nang Beach in Krabi. The resort has 79 bungalows and rooms nestled on a hillside overlooking the lush greenery and breathtaking limestone mountains, making you feel one with nature. There is also a flower-filled park and organic garden in harmony with the environment perfect for a stroll. The hotel offers golf carts to take you up and down your room, which you will need depending on how high up you’re staying. The higher up, the better the view.

10 Pretty Good Reasons to Visit Ao Nang in Krabi

Ao Nang is the center of tourism in Krabi close to all attractions. The town itself is dominated by restaurants, bars, and shops and is consider touristy by some. But whether you’re planning on spending a vacation here or not, there are some pretty good reasons to visit Ao Nang.

Pai Plong Beach and the Monkey Trail in Ao Nang

Pai Plong Beach is a small beach hidden in a bay between Ao Nang Beach and Ton Sai Beach (Railay) which can be reached only by boat or via a 10-minute trail over the mountain from Ao Nang Beach’s south end. The trail is called “Monkey Trail” because of the macaque’s monkeys living around the trail.

The beach is beautiful with lovely greenish water surrounded by limestone mountains and lush greenery. The five-star Centara Grand Beach Resort is located directly on the beach with security guards asking you to sign your name in a book before entering the beach zone and signing out when leaving.

Two Nights at Aonang Cliff Beach Resort

Aonang Cliff Beach Resort is built on the hillside in the heart of Ao Nang and boasts an infinity pool with stunning ocean view. This pool with views was the reason we chose to stay here when visiting Ao Nang two nights in late February. Yep, I’m a sucker when it comes to views. I imagined a fairly standard hotel, but the resort was huge, and I got a good feeling right after we arrived and the friendly staff welcomed us. I just knew it would be a good stay.

Railay – the Paradise Around the Corner of Ao Nang

Last week I wrote about Ao Nang Beach, and if you were not impressed by that area, there’s one more place just around the corner that for sure will make you go WOW! I’m talking about Railay; a small peninsula with two bays, known as West Railay and East Railay.

Surrounded by incredible limestone cliffs, Railay (or Rai Leh) can only be reached by boat, giving it an island feel. The high cliffs attract rock climbers from all over the world, and the beautiful beaches can be packed with longtail boats and trippers from Ao Nang. Although it is a paradise, Railay is good for a day trip or a few nights — unless you are a rock climber, then you might want to stay longer.

Ao Nang Beach: Not the Most Ideal, but Very Scenic

Ao Nang Beach is not the typical white sandy beach with crystal clear water, and during high tide, the sand practically disappears. But the scenery with its limestone cliffs, palm trees and longtail boats moored along the shore is pretty stunning. Ao Nang Beach acts more like a jumping-off point for island hopping between the beautiful islands in Krabi archipelago.
