Red Ginger Chic Resort, Ao Nang
This hotel is very modern, clean and elegantly finished, and has rooms which are equipped with everything you need. The pool is too small for the number of guests the hotel can accoomodate, and there is a shortage of sun loungers. The pool has a nice pool bar (complete with underwater bar stools) and a separate children’s pool. In high season, you have to get up early if you want to bag a sun-lounger, as they all get reserved early.
What the resort suffers from most is a lack of shared space, considering the high prices charged. While the rooms are in good condition, there are too many of them for the shared facilities provided, leading to overcrowding in the high season.
The resort indulges in some of the standard mid-range resort annoyances, like charging per item for laundry (when around town THB 35 / kg is standard), putting seals on the drinks in the mini bar so you can’t drink and then replace them, and having to ask them to turn on the daily DVD movie, which then plays ‘The Incredible Hulk’ continuously for 48 hours.
The breakfast bread here won’t be to many travellers liking. If you book with us we’ll deliver a quality baker’s loaf to you on arrival. One www.tripadvisor.com contributor wrote this about the restaurant:
The hotel is almost new, so limited feedback has so far been received on the restaurant. We would be most grateful if you were to tell us what you think of the food here. The hotel is well located within easy walking distance of most of Ao Nang’s best restaurants (including Wang Sai seafood, just a few steps away), nightlife and amenities, click here for a map.
The 6 different room types this resort offers are reasonably good value for money. All rooms are immaculate, but some have much better views than others. One www.tripadvisor.com contributor wrote:
The reader can note the contrast between this comment and the beautifully verdant view out of a window shown in the image, which was supplied by the hotel, next to the above text. When the writer visited the resort, he was shown a room with a view similar to the image above, but there is some waste ground next to the resort, which would account for the www.tripadvisor.com comment.
Similarly, some rooms’ sea-views are considerably better than others. For a room with a view, contact us – our office is only 1 minute away on a motorbike, so we’ll pop round and get you the best room for your dates. No other company offers you this service, plus we hope an unbeatable price.
We expect the 5 ground-floor ‘Deluxe Pool Access’ rooms to get booked up early in the season, as many people love the idea of jumping out of bed and then straight into the pool (after a shower, naturally), so it’s a good idea to book them as early as possible. The other huge benefit with the ‘Pool Acess’ rooms is that their terraces have sun-loungers, so you are guaranteed a lounger, no matter what time you get up and how full the hotel is. Getting a lounger by the pool, especially in peak season (20th Dec to 10th Jan), can be a big problem.
In addition, we offer the following free benefits:
