The Lowdown

Ao Nang’s just the place for a sunny, fun-filled holiday. The beach-side town has a perpetual air of summer festivity, a laid-back atmosphere and is the gateway to some of the world’s best beaches.
The perfect place to enjoy it all: The Small. The kooky exterior of the hotel stands out from the rest of the dusty street – a cheery oasis of modern sensibilities with a sparkling rooftop pool that has the view of the nearby sea, and cool, comfortable rooms to shade your sun-soaked skin. After a long day of massages, water sports, snorkelling and eating, it is just the place to come back and rejuvenate.
Situated right at the edge of a popular resort, you’ll find that it is immensely easy to travel from the hotel’s central location.

Really nice hotel with lovely staff
Reviewed 1 month ago

We were lucky enough to be given ground floor rooms with sliding doors opening to the swimming pool which the kids loved. The rooftop pool is nice too for a small hotel.
The rooms are modern, clean and much better than I expected.
The staff are lovely - especially the daytime girls on reception.

Location is good between the two beaches. Ao Nang is the better of the two and isn't particularly special when compared to beaches on the islands nearby. There are plenty of restaurants near the hotel.

We were only staying 3 nights before moving to Koh Phi Phi and we really enjoyed our stay. We did some sunset kayaking at Ao Thalane one day which was great fun too.

Full of smiles!

Me and my mum stayed here for ten days and not a day went by when we did not feel welcomed by all of the staff! They are all very smiley and friendly and more than happy to help. One in particular staff member called Tar (in the picture) was extremely lovely! We stayed in the pool side room which was very nice and was tended to daily by the cleaning staff. Their restaurant also does fantastic Thai food! Over all, I would love to stay here again!

7 nights in a perfectly placed small hotel.
Everything you need, not luxe but far from basic. Clean and well designed rooms. 2 pools and an air con system we never got to grips with. (Our fault entirely).
Best thing was the staff. Friendly helpful and always cheerful. Couldn’t have asked for more.

Little nice place

Maybe not for people who want a luxury, I really liked it thou, friendly staff, from a room on the ground floor you can jump straight to the swimming pool or private jacuzzi. Breakfasts excellent, they will cook your eggs as you like it.
