Nakamanda Resort & Spa
Ranked #4 of 12 Hotels in Nong Thale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2016 via mobile

Those are the words I would describe this hotel. I was a little unsure after some of the recent reviews but my family really liked this property.

The attention to detail in the private villa, quiet relaxing beach, service and location were all on point.

Folks have complained about the breakfast but we really enjoyed it. Was a full continental breakfast, eggs to order, thai food and a noodle soup station. Not sure what more can one ask for. My wife also really liked her meals out there, we tried the shacks on the beach (out towards the right hand side of the beach) but her preference was the hotel meals.

It is a bit far from Ao Nang town but the shuttle service helps. We went to town twice which was good but then relaxed on the property the other evenings and soaked in the villa and views.

For massages, as suggested the places across the hotel have standard massage rates and we went there everyday. Highly recommend those. Didn't try the hotel spa.

My favorite is the private beach just beside the kitchen and swimming pool, where is a fantastic place for sunshine. The resort is clean, quiet. The service is thoughtful and the staff is warm. I like the villa style room with a private terrace. This is a perfect place for a family travel.
The only thing that may not be perfect is the location of the resort. It is very far away from Ao Nang or the center of Krabi. So I strongly recommend the guests to rent a car. Otherwise, it would be not so convenient for commuting to other places.

I got a nice deal for the resort and I decided to go there to decompress from NYC before starting my travel.
Really nice choice.
The hotel is really quiet, the service is good and the little villa are really well maintained and in Thai style.
The room I got didn't have a nice view, but inside was comfy and spacious.
Lines and towel were freshly washed and good quality.
I tried the spa with the traditional Thai massage and it was what I needed.
The restaurant was good, breakfast had both western and Chinese options, dinner didn't have much option but I think because it was low season.
The beach isn't big or quaint, but the pool is nice.
I don't recommend this property for solo travelers, since there is not much going on around the resort (unless you are not looking for quiet)

Amazing property with a breathtaking view of the beach. Lovely, spacious and well lit room and a rather big bathroom. Very polite and efficient staff, always smiling and ready to help. Our rooms were cleaned everyday during our stay, smelling fresh from the herbal aroma of the oil diffuser.
Breakfast was well laid out and expansive. We had dinner at the restaurant only once and the food was good, especially the squid salad.
Absolutely delightful stay, no room for any complains whatsoever.

This is a really unique hotel comprised of small personal villas set in very well cared for (and hilly) resort just off the beach. Probably the friendliest and most attentive staff of any hotel we have visited. The rooms are spacious with excellent bathroom areas. The furnishings are noticeably older but very clean and well cared for. Air con was effective but on the louder side. The pool area is excellent - unsure why people are complaining about faded tiles etc as it's in great condition.

Breakfast was mixed. A nice range of Thai breakfast items and they make egg dishes to request. Fresh fruit juices were limited but tasty. Definitely not 5* standard but this is a small hotel and it certainly wasn't a disappointment. Dinner in the restaurant was of good quality, about par for the area. A short walk the hotel are some excellent beach bars and restaurants where prices are a little cheaper!

The spa was second to none and definitely worth a least one go during your stay!

Having walked into a couple of the other hotels in the area whilst strolling along the beach, Nakamanda stands out as far more personal and typically Thai. If you want a more modern and impersonal hotel then there are others which all seemed great, but seemed to be lacking something!

Whilst slightly isolated from Ao Nang and the more typically touristy areas (20 mins taxi) it was very easy to plan days out from the hotel - snorkelling, kayaking etc. Taxis are fairly cheap from just outside the hotel and were safe.

Overall this was a wonderful experience. It definitely deserves to be on the "budget" end of a 5* rating. An excellent peaceful resort.
