... of money that will definitely leave you speechless and can even ruin your holidays. They donīt check if tourists carry a valid driving license. The only thing they are interested in is your passport, thus they make sure you wonīt leave without paying.

In spite of the incident we decided to rent our own scooter (BHT 150 per day). Neither Barbara nor I felt like driving a motorbike so we decided to share one motorcycle among three of us. Of course, we werenīt allowed to ...

It feels like I have been here so much longer than just a week! I had whole mango for breakfast this morning again- its so easy to eat healthy here! We spent the rest of the day by the sea, had a wee walk and then went out for dinner... I ordered far too much and am now sitting in bed feeling very full and sleepy. We are planning on visiting the waterfalls tomorrow and we have a morning yoga class on the beach starting at 9. Missing you ...

... sun while Marian and I found a nice shady spot for ourselves :P After Pod Island they brought us snorkeling which was great fun, we saw so many different types of brightly coloured fishes, probably even more than when we went diving in Ko Tao. I got a bit carried away trying to take my life ********** and dive down with Marian’s camera so I didn’t notice that everyone had gotten out of the water and the tour guide was shouting at me to come in!! Whoops!!!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Pavilion Queen's Bay Ao Nang

    Loving it.

    from

    The rooms were nice and the service was spectacular! My favourite would be the big bar with a pool table and a live band downstairs! Will definitely go back again.

    Tropical Paradise

    from

    After 22 long, seemingly endless hours of flying I was anxious to get to Krabi and begin my first vacation in over a year. I picked the Pavillion Queen's Bay, not really knowing Krabi or which hotel to choose. I definitely made the right choice.

    After arriving at the airport in Krabi, I left the gate area and was immediately greeted by my personal driver sent from the hotel. After a short trip from the airport to the hotel, I arrived at the hotel and was again greeted warmly by the concierge staff. I was very impressed with the vast open-air lobby which featured exquisite marble and woodwork. Check-in was quick, painless, and I was shown immediately to my room.

    I was equally as impressed with the room which featured again, impressive decoration, a sumptuous bed, a huge bathroom, and my own private balcony with a large wooden swing from which I could sit on, rock, and stare off into the magnificent view. Once I got settled, I went downstairs to talk to the Concierge about where to go, what to do, etc... Needless to say, they all spoke excellent English and told me what was fun and hot in Krabi and what was not. On my way back to the hotel room, I decided to take a dip in the three level/floor pool. Set on three levels connected by cascading waterfalls and beautifully adorned with dark blue tile, I swam in bliss. For dinner that night, I decided to try the hotel restaurant on the 6th floor. I was not disappointed and had the best meal I have ever had in Thailand.

    I spent the rest of my trip exploring Krabi and the surrounding islands and countryside. I did not want to leave, but alas all good things must come to an end. Check-out was as quick and painless as check-in was. It's been two months since my time in Krabi and I am planning my return already. No doubt, I will be staying at Queen's Bay again.

    Best of Both Worlds

    from

    I stayed in Pavilion Queen's Bay over the New Year period in 2006. When I first got into Ao Nang, I was a little worried about the very very toursity beach strip that is similar to tacky beach holiday packages. Once I arrived at the resort I was relieved to find that the it is located a little off the main tourist strip on a hill with stunning views of both the surrounding tropical jungles as well as the sea. The decor is in perfect harmony with the hotel's tranquile surroundings. My first impression was that this hotel was perfect for a relaxing holiday.

    My experience during my stay did indeed confirm my first impression of the hotel. The room we were shown to was spacious with a very comfortable king- size bed and large bathroom, and lots of wardrobe space. The hotel has a lovely 3-tiered pool with great views. The beach in main Ao Nang was very easy to get to but we preferred to get the long-tail boat to the Rai Lei beach. Ao Nang beach was too close to the bustling tourist activities for my liking, and getting away to the more spectacular beaches was also extremely easy from Ao Nang beach.

    The hotel staff were all helpful, friendly and efficient, and spoke very good English. We had a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner buffet there. The hotel restaurant served really good breakfast, as well as Thai and Western food for lunch and dinner. There is also a Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant. We sampled everything during our stay and for someone who lives in Japan, I have to say that the standard of the Japanese restaurant is comparable to the very good restaurants in Japan. It tastes more interesting than traditional Japanese food, as their chiefs created some wonderful Thai-Japanese fusion dishes.

    Needless to say, I had the perfect beach holiday that I expected during my stay at Pavillion Queen's Bay. It provided wonderful dining experiences as well as the best of both worlds of providing a sense of tranquility and the convienence of having easy access to the great beaches of Krabi peninsula.

    Nice, quiet hotel away from the beach

    from

    if you're looking for a beach front resort, this is NOT the place you want. pavilion is located on a hill and is a fair distance from the sand. it's a dark road down the hill to the shops along Ao Nang beach.

    but the rooms are clean and big. a huge bathroom, nice balcony with a swing and seating area, and thai day bed in your room. view of the sea a distance out, but you'll probably be looking at some construction work going on.

    nice, but small pool. helpful staff, good breakfasts. great for a relaxing holiday

    main grouse : the wooden floors are squeaky, you can hear your neighbour upstairs walking around

    The only place fit for a movie star in Ao Nang!

    from

    I was worried that Krabi was going to be a dead town, like I've been told, even 9 months after the Tsunami. So imagine my surprise when I got to Pavilion Queen's Bay, stepped out of the car and the first person I saw was Christian Bale! Turns out he was shooting a movie in Krabi and was staying here, that gave me a really good first impression of the place. Love the 3-level swimming pool and the swinging bed on your private balcony! The room was very nice, huge bathroom, and lots of gorgeous Thai silk in the decor. Tried the Spa and that was very glamorously decorated too. By far the classiest looking place in Ao Nang, Krabi!

    Wish I could rate this zero

    from

    What a disappointment! This hotel was definitely not a four or five star hotel! First of all, the management was horrible. They were actually sleeping on the job since there were almost no guests at the hotel.

    The pool was not able to be used for either of the 2 stays.

    A BIG DEAL -- I don't know about you but I like privacy when I use the bathroom. The bathrooms are lovely but are Thai double doors. This means that when they are closed, your roommate can peak in at the sides anyway. I do not expect people to speak my language when I am in their country but usually a 4 star hotel speaks English -- these people spoke NO ENGLISH! That was OK, I am good at charades.

    The bed is unusually hard and the food from either room service or the upstairs hotel, not good.

    The hotel is VERY far from the beach although we never saw the beach anyway. We were "upgraded" to a sea view but could not see the sea. We overlooked a construction site and mountains on the other side. I think the reason they placed us on that side of the hotel was so that we would not overlook the Thai Village Resort accross the street as it was MUCH nicer.

    I would definitely recommend that you stay at The Cliffs or something else.

    Unfortunately, I had pictures but in a disagreement with the people who I travelled with, they have not sent me all the picturs that we took together. It was their camera so I cannot complain but I did want to do a more comprehensive review on Tripadvisor. Sorry, folks.

    Anyway, TRUST me, do not stay here! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. Thanks.

    Would not recommend at all if you like 4-5*.

    from

    Sorry to be negative, but for us - this was a huge disappointment. We looked for a pampering hotel, right on the beach, with direct access, as well as proximity to restaurants and shops.

    It is indeed close to the Ao Nang main road where there are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants, etc. But it is nowhere near a beach and has no access to its own stretch of beach.

    The rooms were tired, and in need of refurbishment. The whole area in front of the hotel was being built and developped when we were there, a year ago.

    We did not stay - we immediately asked to be moved -we were there for a whole week and would not compromise- and were very happy elsewhere (Sheraton). We may have missed elements like great service and food. We would not know. But if you are after a pampering, high standard place and on a beach holiday want the beach to be part of it, this is definitely not for you.

    Mixed feelings

    from

    Arrived the middle of feb 05, and weren't sure what to expect because of the Tsunami. Fortunately the resort received minimal damage and things were pretty much back to normal, with the exception of fewer tourists.

    The hotel was lovely and the room was an excellent size, but the resort was only around 15% full meant there wasn't much of an atmosphere. The hotel seemed to be running a limited service, as the restaurants and bars were closed and all meals & drinks were served in one area, there was no buffet breakfast instead we had a limited A la Carte service, no in room dining menu, coffee/tea facilities not replaced after use, internet not available.

    The resort was operating with limited staff, but they seemed to be in need of training as a few little things were missing. Alarm calls were missed or late/early (by about 20-25 mins), calls to housekeeping where they were to get back to me were never returned, reconfirming flights seemed to cause a problem and on the last day our transfer, which we had prearranged with the hotel and reconfirmed the time with a few days before departure, was late because the driver was late.

    A lovely hotel but because of our negative experience we would look at other resorts if returning to Krabi

    Perfect hotel to relax and to be pampered

    from

    We stayed in Pavilion Queen's Bay in January 2004 and can really recommend it. The hotel is beautifully refurbished in Lana Thai style. The staff is very friendly and the athmosphere of the hotel is nice and quiet. All the rooms have a large balcony with seaview. Breakfast is served on top of the hotel (seaview) and the best we had in Thailand. The hotel guest are mostly people who want to relax. The hotel reaches the four standard and even five. The downside is in our opinion that the location of the little town Aonang where the hotel is situated is already spoiled by tourism. Too many tourists destroyed the beach, the coral reefs and Thai hospitality. The best is to stay in the hotel and ignore the village. Therefore we unfortunally will not return. But if you intend to visit Aonang / Krabi, definitely stay in Pavilion Queen's Bay.
