During my stay, I found these bungalows to offer the perfect blend of quiet seclusion with easy access to all Ao Nang has to offer. After an initial disappointment over the fact that these bungalows are neither directly on the beach nor right in downtown Ao Nang, I quickly fell in love with the place. Located within the jungle-like recesses of a former rubber tree plantation at the foot of one of Krabi's many magnificent limestone monoliths, the Ao Nang Garden Bungalows has the feel of an eco-lodge deep in a remote rainforest. However, the busy shops and bars of Ao Nang are actually just a five minute drive down a dirt road, and the beautiful beaches of the area just an arms reach beyond that. The staff of Ao Nang Garden Bungalows are what really separate this place from the pack. Friendly and welcoming, they treat each guest like family and are attentive to your every waking need. If you lack your own vehicle, the staff are willing to drive you anywhere, anytime at no extra cost. They also have a small collection of mopeds on site that can be rented at a bargain rate. I found that the mopeds were perfect for running small trips to town, while one of the staff trucks was preferred when going out on group outings (which the staff will book and coordinate for you with simplistic ease). The open-air "tiki style" restaurant and bar has Internet access, wonderful dining options and drinks too strong for words. This area is perfect not only for eating and socializing, but great for reading, relaxing and planning the next leg of your adventure. While drinking a Singha beer here one afternoon, a "flying lemur" jumped from an adjacent tree and glided kite-like over my head and onto another tree. This kind of unique wildlife sighting, along with the constant sense of peace and quiet, is not likely in the hustle and bustle of nearby Ao Nang town, despite the close proximity. Whether you're in Thailand for the nature or the nightlife, staying at these bungalows offers the best of both worlds.Recommended for:
