We decided to visit Aonang Beach, rather than Krabi town during our visit to the west coast of southern Thailand. We were happy with our decision, mostly because of the Deevana Plaza Krabi Aonang where we were staying because it was pretty much raining the entire time we were there. Although the beach is suppose to be one of the best, we were not able to really enjoy it due to the weather.
We were lucky to have chosen to stay at the Deevana Plaza Krabi Aonang. Our room was spacious and we had a balcony overlooking one of five pools on the property. We had a comfortable king sized bed and a large bathtub to relax in. The room was very clean, which made it easier for us to spend more time there than usual due to the weather.
The Deevana runs a shuttle to town on a specified schedule, which is free. It drops you at the Starbucks, which is central and walking distance to most of the hot spots in town. If you wish to go into town at a time other than the scheduled shuttle, you have the option to arrange private transportation to the starbucks for 100 baht, however there is no shuttle back to the hotel at all. It is definitely walking distance from Starbucks and generally took about 15 minutes or 10 minutes from the beach.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Deevana Plaza Krabi Aonang. I took advantage of the gym while Steven worked on some of his applications for medical school in the room. A big plus was decent wifi, which is sometimes hard to come by in thailand. We enjoyed breakfast both mornings we were there. The selection included traditional asian cuisine as well as western options. The breakfast buffet was up to par compared to many of the other hotels we have stayed in during our trip. If you are looking for a clean and comfortable stay during your time in Aonang, the Deevana is definitely a great choice!
