Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort

The location of the Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort

The Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort is located on the main road of Ao Nang which leads all the way from the beach (the boulevard) towards Krabi Town. This road is called Route 4203 and here you will find numerous restaurants, bars, massage parlours, tourist shops, travel agencies and so on. A very lively and busy street! Despite the crowds on the street you won’t hear anything during your stay in this beautiful resort.

In less than a ten minutes walk you are on the beach of Ao Nang or you may stroll along the boulevard of this coastal city! In any case, you will never get bored because there is plenty to do in the vicinity of the resort. Hungry or thirsty? Everywhere in the neighborhood there are plenty of good restaurants and nice bars to find! And our favorite small supermarket, the 7-Eleven, is a few doors next to the resort, always handy!

Check in

Upon arrival at the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort you must first go to the third floor where the reception of this beautiful resort is located. The resort is built against a hill with the entrance on street level but when entering you have to go upstairs first by stairs or elevator. Once upstairs you will be welcomed with a refreshing welcome drink by the friendly staff. During check-in at the reception the necessary information about your stay will be well and clearly explained.

Then you and your luggage will be brought to your room. On the way to your room you’ll find out how big the resort is, you step into the elevator, get out on an even higher part, grab a walkway connecting another part of the resort, lift up again and before you know you’re in front of your room. At least our room, the Avani Superior Sea View Room. This room has a phenomenal view over the coastal town of Ao Nang, the limestone cliffs and the Andaman Sea! Amazingly beautiful!

The different rooms at the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort

All clean rooms at the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort have wifi, a safe, a minibar, air conditioning and all the standard amenities you would expect in a good resort. The bed is wonderfully soft and doesn’t feel like you’re sleeping on a wooden shelf. (Some hotel beds in Thailand are). What made us very happy was the good coffee machine in the room. Waking up nice and quiet in your own room!

The Avani Resort in Ao Nang offers its future guests various room options. The cheapest option is the standard Avani Room of 47 m2 with balcony. Then there is the slightly larger version of 48 m2 which is called the Avani Superior Room and of course also has a balcony. Below on the picture the recently completely renovated (2020) standard Avani Room.

Avani Superior Sea View Room

In August 2019 we stayed several nights in the Avani Superior Sea View Room. The view from this room is so breathtaking! The bath- and bedroom is very spacious, clean and offers all the comfort you desire during a carefree holiday! It was great to wake up relaxed with that beautiful view of the sea from your bed! But also the Thai warm evenings in the whirlpool on the balcony were a feast! An absolute must!

Infinity pool with a view!

The infinity pool of the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort has the best view of all pools in Ao Nang! The pool offers incredible views over the area and coastal town of Ao Nang! We won’t forget our stay in this pool with a mesmerizing panoramic view! You find the 22 meter infinity pool on the sixth floor of the resort where you can also order various drinks and snacks.

Then there is another swimming pool opposite the reception. This is ideal for a splash after a good work out in the adjacent gym. To be honest, we preferred a cocktail and snack at the infinity pool! Both swimming pools are open from 10 AM to 7 PM, so plenty of time to relax.

The Pano Cafe is open from 6 to 10:30 AM. Here your day starts with a nice fresh breakfast. This in a very large dining area where you can enjoy both inside and outside the very varied breakfast! In the Pano Cafe there is so much choice that after a week you still haven’t been able to taste everything from the many Thai and western dishes.  Would you rather have breakfast with a bowl of yoghurt? You can choose from different kinds of dairy products, breakfast cereals and dried fruit. By the way, there is also a salad bar!

Egg station at the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort

The Cliff is the ultimate place for a refreshing drink and snack during your relaxing stay at the resort’s amazing infinity pool. The friendly staff will serve you from 10 AM till 5 PM and will be happy to tell you more about what to do in the area of Ao Nang. The Cliff is a super nice place to spend a few hours lazing around and alternating with a splash in the cooling water! By the way, there is another pool bar called the Orchid Pool Bar. This can be found by the pool downstairs at the reception on the opposite side of the gym.

The Peak Bar

The Peak Bar is located at the highest point of the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort with superb almost 360 view over the village and the coast. A super sweet place where you can enjoy good cocktails! For us the happy hour moment was one of the many highlights because of the beautiful light that is created during twilight. During sunset it is of course totally great here! The Peak Bar is open from 17:00  and 20:00.

Andaman Beach Club

As a bonus there is the Andaman Beach Club at a small private beach within a 10 minutes drive from the resort. The free shuttle will bring you here and pick you up. The shuttle departs from 10 AM every two hours until 6 PM. This location is really nice to grab a bite for the lunch for example. We loved the Massaman beef and enjoyed the fresh coconuts and chilled beers at the beach!

Keep in mind that at high tide the beach where the Andaman Beach Club is located will be flooded. Still, there are plenty of nice shady spots where you can completely unwind, such as in the hammocks or swings that can be found here and there!

Avani Fit & Avani Spa

After all that delicious food and drink during your great stay, maybe it’s time for a little exercise to keep those holiday silos in check. Luckily there is a fitness room with several fitness machines opposite the swimming pool. Here you can do cardio or strength training from 6 AM till 8 PM. Work it!

Prefer more relaxation instead of that hard work on holiday? Or wanna reward yourself after that fitness session? Then consider an arrangement at the Avani Spa. This spa is open from 10 AM till 9 PM and offers different types of massages or beauty treatments. You will find the Avani Spa on the fourth floor of the resort’s Panorama building.

The Avani service and hospitality

All Avani accommodations in Thailand are very much appreciated by its visitors. This is also true when it comes to service and hospitality. The reviews are excellent. And we totally agree! During our stay at the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort we didn’t lack anything and we enjoyed our stay to the fullest! All the staff was extremely friendly and they can arrange various activities and trips for their guests. Among other things, you can arrange excursions to the Emerald & Blue Pool or the various hot springs in the area.

Also private transport to for example Krabi Airport is easily fixed! Or use the shared shuttle service to the airport for 200 baht per person.
