The hotel is located in the resort town of Ao Nang, which offers the best of everything Krabi has to offer. There are lovely quiet beaches, shops, restaurants, and enough nightlife to keep you occupied, all a short distance away from Nopharat Thara pier, from which you can catch regular ferries to surrounding islands. The Holiday Inn Resort itself has direct access to Ao Nang beach, directly opposite a boat operator from which you can chart longtail boats to explore the region.
Style & Design
The sprawling resort is made up of several terraced buildings, separated by lush tropical gardens and a large, winding swimming pool. Despite being extremely family-friendly, there is an adults-only wing that is perfect for couples looking for more peace and quiet.
Most of the rooms are styled in a neutral yet playful style, with pastel tones and decorative nods to traditional Thai design elements. Some of the Deluxe rooms have a more polished, high-end look, with dark polished wood accents.
The big freeform swimming pool is one of the hotel’s biggest draws, with ample room for everyone to lounge, splash, and sunbathe. For fitness addicts, there is a well-equipped, pleasant gym, open 24 hours. The on-site spa also offers everything you could need for a wind-down, including a range of massage, scrub, and facial treatments.
The resort restaurant, Inn Asia, serves up delicious and authentic food, with the generous buffet breakfast being a true highlight. However, there are also plenty of other eateries to explore in the area. The cocktail bar has nightly entertainment, which makes for a perfect way to start a night out in Ao Nang.
The rooms come in a range of sizes and styles to fit all budgets, but all of them have a private terrace, large windows, and ample floor space. In the higher room categories, you can get great extra perks like direct pool access, extra-large beds, and luxurious soaking bathtubs.
