While staying in Bangkok, I decided to plan an excursion to Ao Nang, Krabi. I packed my bags and was on my way to Don Mueang International Airport around noon. I boarded my flight and arrived in Krabi a short while later. A bus shuttle from the airport dropped me off to my beachfront hotel, The L Resort, in Ao Nang.
The location and scenery were better than I could have hoped for. I visited in early September, so the beaches weren’t crowded at all. Tranquil aquamarine water and long-tail boats floating in the distance are the sort of images you’d conjure up if you tried to picture Thailand’s seaside paradise. Well, that’s exactly what I got.
The laid-back island vibe and picture-postcard views were breathtaking. My cozy room at The L Resort was spacious and tidy; it was equipped with all the modern amenities as well. The white and purple color scheme was incredibly relaxing while the wide, panoramic windows drenched the room in natural light and afforded a lovely view of the outdoors.
The hotel has 48 guestrooms and two beautiful outdoor pools. Breakfast is served at Wanna’s Place where the food selection is absolutely scrumptious. On top of that, the staff is very friendly and is happy to share tips with travelers, so you’ll get the best out of your holiday.
During my stay here, I walked around town and tried out a few restaurants. There are lots of eateries, bars and souvenir shops dotted along the street. While you’re here, be sure to book a tour and visit the nearby beaches. The four islands you can hop to while you’re in Ao Nang are: Railay Bay, Chicken Island, Tup Island and Poda Island.
On my final day, I stood by the beach during sunset and gazed at the mesmerizing view. The sun dipped beneath the horizon in a brilliant display of warm, peachy tones that painted the sky like an artist’s canvas. It was truly a memorable weekend. The hospitable staff and management at the L Resort elevated my experience tenfold.
