I was a victim of the "excellent " reviews of this place and unfortunately I made a reservation there. Bare in mind that during low season it's absolutely secluded and you can't enjoy the beach because of the weather. If it's raining you just have to go to the nearby villages cause there is nothing there. As for service/ staff...

We had a fabulous stay at this property. Read some more of the reviews before you make a judgement whether to stay here or not. The property is a little outside Ao Nam Mao, a small town with a pier to access Rai Leh Beach. Our Airport bus shuttle took us as far as the Pier, and we had to...

This is a pleasant and peaceful setting to stay in with nice but small bungalows. All the staff were very welcoming! Breakfast is included but it is simple, so don't expect a cooked breakfast. In terms of location its great for relaxing on the beach, but for any kind of nightlife you need to head into Ao Nang which is...

First off I would not recommend this location at all during low season. Not a pleasant stay at all. The beds are hard, the beach is barley there, and the free breakfast is simply bread. The bungalows themselves aren't so cozy. But remember if your staying in a bungalow you're going to get a bungalow experience. A lot of people...

This hippy joint has been run to the ground by a spaced out Swedish Hippy lady, who is a lunatic. She howls at sunset. Pretty spooky. The owner is a spaced out Thai bloke. In the past, it was rented out to 2 sisters to operate. They did a great job. Great food, clean restaurant, great service. Now the service...

I am backpacking through Asia with my girlfriend and we came across this place on AirBnB. DoH is a fantastic place to really just be with nature. Its a very warm and friendly place to be where they really treat you like family. It is a bit far away from Ao Nang so its not for party people (in the...

Not sure what this place charges during high season, but what a steal. We were one of two occupants there and as a result had the place pretty much to ourselves. The bungalows are air conditioned, have mosquito nets, and are probably 30 steps from the beach and water. There are plentiful hammocks upon which to lounge about and floating...

The location is amazing. A private beach with cliffs all around. Tide goes out and you have nice mud flats to discover. Gekos and birds all around.. We booked the jungle house (two big bedrooms and a shared bathroom in between the rooms with air con). But the condition of the place are really bad. Forget about breakfast - we...

The places' cheap, and very quiet. Bungalow a bit old, but lights and hot water are work very well. The location was better than we expected, beachfront. There are some others bungalow which's not beachfront. But still very easy to walk down to the beach. The owner was very nice, and friendly. Her name's Olsa (I might spelled wrong) her...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fan Room : 500,- Baht/night (May to September) 800,-Baht/night (October to April) Air con Room : 800,- Baht /night (May to September) 1000,- Baht/night (October-November/February-April) 1200,-/night (December-January) A place to rest, not touristy, as you would imagine to be a peaceful holiday on a private beach. There are only a few places in Thailand like this. Highly recommended, for people who want to enjoy the tranquility. The bungalows are simple but cozy. They are directly on the beach ( Ao Nam Mao beach). In your room you will find : A real bed, a fan, a table and a chair to write a postcard, a wardrobe, a toilet with warm water and a small terrace where you can hang your hammock and enjoy the sea breeze. There is a restaurant, beach terrace and a community pavilion. We have own WIFI and it is very good signal. Ao Nam Mao is a quiet area of Krabi with many attractions. In the neighborhood are a shell cemetery (known as a fossil beach) or a traditional fishing village "Ban Lampoo" where you get to know the lifestyle of locals. A riding with trained horses is our neighbor. You can ride along the beach or go swimming with the horses. For children is also something there .. A "fun park" (Adventure Park) where the kids or even adults climb into the trees or behave a time like Tarzan. From us you can walk to Ao Nammao where they can go by boat to Railey beach or Tonsai beach. The public bus from Krabi town or from Ao Nang beach stop directly in front of the resort. From the airport you can get a taxi to join us, just tell them "Dawn of Happiness" Resort, Ao Nam Mao beach (close to Fossil beach) and the taxi will bring you here (about 600 bht). We offer a pick up service as well. ... more   less
