Decided on this hotel after the great reviews on TripAdvisor. Was satisfied with the overall stay at Thip Residence. Provides a great value for money. Paid less than S$30 for a night in the superior room. The room was huge and clean and had a nice private small balcony to enjoy the view of the sea and cliffs. The swimming pool was great and the staff was helpful enough.
The downside was that it was far from town, Ao Nang about 15mins away so there is no shopping anywhere around. But there are many great food stalls nearby. My lunch only costs me about $2. Another thing was that I had requested for a traditional thai massage in the hotel however, the staff informed me that there was no available masseuse around. Lastly, I had no kettle in my superior room so had to go down to the restaurant for hot drinking water. But for $30, I didn't expect much anyways.
Overall, if you are looking for quiet, value for money hotel away from the crowd, this could be it for you.
