Ao Phra Nang Beach Hotels

Occupying a postcard-perfect position on southern Thailand’s Andaman Coast, Ao Phra Nang Beach is the centrepiece of the lively Ao Nang resort. A long ribbon of white gold sand, fringed with lush foliage, it’s an amenity-packed hotspot for lazy relaxation and not-so-lazy recreation. Take a dip in the warm teal water, head out on a diving trip, or take a long-tail boat ride to Krabi Province’s idyllic limestone islands, or climber’s haven Railay Beach.

Things to see

When you envision a Thai paradise, it probably looks something like Ao Phra Nang Beach. Whilst it’s the busiest stretch of sand in the province, it’s not hard to find your own spot of idyll in amongst the other sun worshippers. Alongside its plentiful boat services, the road behind the beach is dotted with restaurants, bars, and shops, making it a convenient place to unwind.

Similarly named, but not to be confused, Phra Nang Beach offers a more serene alternative. Accessible only by a 20-minute boat ride, its breath-taking scenery is straight from the pages of a glossy magazine, with pure white sand, framed by grand limestone cliffs. To the edge of the beach, concealed within a small cave, is the Phra Nang Shrine. Dedicated to the princess goddess of the same name, it’s frequented by local boaters and fishermen, who come to leave offerings to ensure safe seafaring. Curiously, these offerings are nearly always phallic-shaped carvings.

Hotels in Ao Phra Nang Beach

Many of the hotels in Ao Phra Nang Beach sit just moments from the sand, providing rooms and balconies with glittering sea views. The luxury accommodation here is particularly lavish, and ranges from stylish spa hotels that preen and pamper guests, to picturesque villa resorts, wrapped in tropical grounds. As with the more modest hotels in Ao Phra Nang Beach, they usually feature on-site restaurants and bar lounges, along with outdoor pools. If you’re looking for a more affordable stay, there’s no lack of budget-friendly full-service accommodation, as well as thrifty guesthouses too – though some may place you a little further inland.

Where to stay

A hotel in Ao Phra Nang Beach gives you a picturesque serving of sun, sea, and sand, without neglecting any of the creature comforts. Ao Nang is possibly the most westernized of Krabi’s resorts, with a large choice of multicultural restaurants, cheap eat food stands, souvenir shops, and lively after hours haunts. Much of the town’s amenities are dotted along the beach road, making everything easy to get to - particularly in the back of a tuk-tuk. There’s no shortage of things to do here, from diving and snorkelling trips, to mangrove tours and excursions to nearby Railay - with its jaw-dropping scenery and top notch rock climbing.

How to get to Ao Phra Nang Beach

Krabi International Airport is the entry point for most of the province’s overseas visitors. Whilst it primarily serves destinations in Asia, it has regular scheduled services from major hubs including Hong Kong International, Kuala Lumpur International, and Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport – making connecting flights easy for long haul travellers. Once you’ve landed it’s around a half hour journey to the Ao Nang resort. Direct taxis or shared minibuses are the most convenient way to go, whilst buses are slightly cheaper – but can take considerably longer if it’s not a direct route. Alternatively, some hotels in Ao Phra Nang Beach offer an airport pick-up service on request.
