“Great place for our first night in Thailand”
Reviewed 11 November 2011

This is an excellent hotel, well positioned away from the noisy centre. Friendly staff, we were given freshorange juice on arrival and shown to our room which was weirdly down four storeys from reception but in the daylight this all made sense. Clean and well worth the price. The walk to town only took 10 minutes or so, there were great canteen style restaurants a couple of minutes away. We are staying there again on our way back to Bangkok and really looking forward to it. The breakfast is good too.

We totally love our 6D/5N stay at Royal Nakara.

We booked a Deluxe Room, we were very impressed with the room. It was very spacious and it even come with a kitchenette (microwave, water boiler, sink) which we made good use to prepare some snacks. A big balcony. Our room and the whole hotel is very clean and we can walk around without our shoes just like when you're in your own house.

The swimming pool is rather small and is shared with the hotel next door but nevertheless its a nice salt water pool. Throughout our stay, we were the only family using the pool.
Breakfast is great.

Wifi didn't worked in our room but it was ok for us to connect and relax at the lobby. Our young kids did not complain on the 5-10mins walk to the beach, so it wasn't an issue for us.

The staff were all pleasant and nice especially Benyada who all made our stay at Royal Nakara so memorable.

If we are visiting Krabi again, we will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: get a deluxe room

Stayed at the Royal Nakara for 3 nights and was pleasantly suprised at the quality of the rooms for the price. Staff where very friendly, but not over top. Was approx 5 minutes from the heart of Ao Nang up a slight hill. The only negative would be the amount of construction goin on close by but as you spend most of your day exploring it wasnt an issue at all to us.

Would certainly reccomend and stay again.

Stayed 2 nights. The room was clean but the shower it self could be cleaner. There were several cigarette butts lying near the shower window, not a pleasant entree..
The staff were very helpfull and friendly.
Since I stayed there in the low season the price was ok; I payed 1.200 baht per night for a spacious room with oceanview and very comfortable balcony.
The swimmingpool has no space for sun bathing but I quite liked it. The pool is shared with another hotel (Ben's guesthouse) and is squeezed in between the two buildings.
Breakfast was simple but for my short stay it was ok. The omelette was actually delicious!
The building activities seemed to have neared their completion so I wasn't disturbed by that at all.
Certainly would go here again!

Our visit to Krabi was most memorable due to our stay at Royal Nakara. All credit goes to Benyada who runs the hotel so efficiently. She was a perfect host and proactively interacted and suggested us what to do as first time tourists. She also arranged for all our travels and sightseeing.

We stayed in a family room, and it was just excellent. Every small detail was thought of and it had a very warm ambiance. The hotel itself was small but very well designed. The restaurant was good to with a great view. Perfect for a morning breakfast! The location is quiet convenient, as it is just a 10 minute walk to the beach and the local market on Ao nang Beach.

Overall it was a very pleasant stay at Royal Nakara!

On our trip this hotel was the best we've visited in Thailand. Very nice and clean rooms. They upgaded our rooms free of charge, because we asked for seperate beds. Service was on 5 star level. Very helpfull staff, always friendly. This is Thailand at its best. If u plan to go to Ao Nang, consider staying here. Free breakfast included freshly prepared eggs / omlett.
