The Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort is located on an elevated area in the center of Ao Nang. Therefore the resort has a great view over the surroundings of this bustling coastal town. The Villa with 1 Bedroom (110 m2) has an extra-large double bed with an en-suite bathroom. Is this villa too small then there is a double as large four person villa with a large private pool. Perfect for families or groups! The resort has a buffet restaurant and several bars of which The Peak for us a true highlight! A beautiful start of the evening!
The Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort has two swimming pools of which the infinity pool offers you a phenomenal view! We dare to say that this infinity pool offers you the best view over Ao Nang of all pools in the area! That is why we tip this resort in our list of best pool villas in Ao Nang! So if you want to stay in a resort with class, phenomenal views and within walking distance of the beach, then the Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort is the right place for you!
Two kilometres from the beach, the De Malee Pool Villas are nestled in a quiet green oasis. The furthest away from the center but still we tip the accommodation as one of the best pool villas in Ao Nang! Once you stay here you won’t want to leave this amazing villa! The style of the One Bed Room Pool Villa immediately appealed to us! The villa has an area of no less than 90 m2! The sitting and sleeping area is separated by a partition. In the sitting area there is another sofa bed where two children up to 8 years can sleep for free. The neat bathroom has a separate shower and bath.
And of course there is the private swimming pool with a very spacious terrace around it. Isn’t 90 m2 not big enough yet? Then go for the Grand Pool Villa which is 30 m2 larger! Looking for the icing on the cake? Then go for the best of the best and choose the Maisonette / Duplex Pool Villa of 250 m2. WOW!
During your stay in one of the De Malee Pool Villas ask for the floating breakfast, so you get a floating tray and you can have breakfast while swimming.
The Krabi Resort is located exactly between Ao Nang Beach and Noppharat Thara Beach is the ultimate holiday paradise location! The incredibly large tropical pool villa of almost 150 m2 offers you as a guest everything for a great stay in Ao Nang! The villa has a large terrace with huge private pool located in the tropical garden of the resort. The spacious bathroom has a double sink, (bubble) bath and a separate shower. Do you have children with you? No problem! They can sleep on the extra sofa bed in the villa. On holiday with a large family? There is also a pool villa on the beach which is an immense 180 m2!
Because of its great location, the Krabi Resort also has access to a private beach in case you are fed up with the fresh water of your own swimming pool or one of the pools of the resort. The grounds are well maintained and the staff does everything in its power to offer its guests an unforgettable holiday! This great accommodation doesn’t only belong in our list of best pool villas but also in our (future) list of best resorts in Ao Nang for sure!
If you think of a hotel chain in Thailand with an excellent reputation, excellent service and superior quality then you soon end up with the Centara chain. And here too, near the coastal town of Ao Nang, the Centara group has won its spurs! The Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas has its own private beach and there are several pool villas to book. If it concerns the largest pool villa this is the most expensive villa with private pool from our list of best pool villas in Ao Nang. This is for a good reason. The 1 Bedroom Pool Villa is 126 m2 exclusive private pool of 15 m2. From the pool villa you have an idyllic view over the ocean where the villa itself has a bedroom, living room and a bathroom with bath and separate rain shower.
The location of the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villa is exceptionally unique! The resort is only accessible by boat or via the so-called Monkey Trail. And because of the higher location of the pool villa with beautiful views, there is at all times an electric shuttle service waiting for you so you don’t have to walk. Centara service with the typical friendly Thai smile!
The Panan Krabi Resort is really beautiful resort located less than 500 meters from the beach of Ao Nang! This means that you can jump into the sea in a walk of up to 10 minutes! The Deluxe Room Sea View with big outdoor bathtub is actually an exception because you don’t get a pool here but a plunge pool (and it’s actually not a villa). Still, we have chosen that this beautiful room shouldn’t be missing from our list of best pool villa, partly because of the fantastic views that this location offers!
The 66 m2 room has a large bed and the bedroom gives direct access to two balconies. On the first balcony you find the plunge pool and on the second one a nice lounge sofa where you can enjoy the surroundings together. In addition, the beautiful swimming pools of the resort compensate the plunge pool right away! Both children and adults will have a great time, especially in the large pool! The price-quality ratio of the Panan Krabi Resort is completely balanced and the staff is extremely service-minded!
The cheapest option from our list of best pool villas in Ao Nang are the Andakiri Pool Villas. These pool villas are not located near the beach but about 700 meters from the coast. The daily free shuttle service that takes you back and forth to Ao Nang makes up for it. The price of the Pool Villa Sea View is a real bargain for what you get. A fantastic villa of 65 m2 with its own kitchenette, sitting area, bedroom with comfortable bed and (as promised) your own pool with beautiful views of the surroundings!
There are only twenty villas in this resort to book so the location feels intimate and quiet. And because these Andakiri Pool Villas are built on a hill the villas give you a beautiful view over the surroundings of Ao Nang. After a day full of special impressions a stay at this location gives you an ultimate feeling of freedom and tranquility. Besides the pool villa for two people there is also a Duplex Pool Villa ideal for families.
