Phu Petra was clean and comfortable. Rooms were very spacious and decorated nicely. Free breakfast was delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the scenic cliff side view. Super cheap and delicious Thai restaurant just down the street (walking distance). I liked that their hotel tuk tuk took us into town and getting back via cab tuk tuk was easy....

I would recommend this resort to anyone. It's small and delivers personal service. The room was huge, clean, and well decorated. The staff are awesome. It's a bit out of town, but the shuttle runs every hour during the day - or you can take a tuk-tuk for 100 bhat. Great place to stay if you want to get away...

Johannesburg, South Africa

Hi everyone,

I have just booked a room at the Aonang Phu Petra Resort in Krabi from the 12 Jan 2015 to 16th Jan 2015.

I have read some mixed reviews about this place, but am looking forward to a really enjoyable trip.

It will be my first trip to Thailand and it will be with my fiancee and soon-to-be wife on our honeymoon. So, of course, I want it to be spectacular for her and an overall enjoyable experience for both of us.

Some things which we have taken away from the reviews:

1) Avoid hillside (hillview?) villas, and any that are close to the roads, since they`re busy and noisy - Can we request rooms that we are allocated from today (rather than waiting until we check in)?

2) Distance to beach and the 'action' - seems to be a longer walk than just 500m, and would take 20-30 minutes. So, we will plan to either take a scooter taxi, or plan our days with the hotel shuttles in mind. Hopefully during busy season, they are more frequent than just every hour or two.

3) Food options are not great. This is really disappointing for us, since we were hoping to have some excellent in-house options at our hotel, but we will probably make a plan to go elsewhere for breakfast variety and more flavourful and interesting Thai cuisine in Aonang or elsewhere.

4) If we do have any issues with our room - like ants or bathroom smells (??) - then we can let the management or hotel staff know to take care of it.

Any other tips we should be mindful of to make the most of this leg of our honeymoon?

Appreciate your help.
