Outside the main Krabi tourist areas is Ao Thalane, a largely undeveloped beach area surrounded by Krabi’s famous limestone mountains and lush tropical landscapes.
For those seeking a quieter vacation Ao Thalane offers a perfect secluded retreat. nothing to really do except Kayaking or cycling. No shopping complexes and only a couple of restaurants will be found near the hotels. There is very little to do at night, which for those seeking peace and quiet is perfect.
The beach near Tha Lane Resort and Villa Thalanena is the best in the area and it also enjoys Melinas Monkey House and Whale Bar and Bac a sable beach front restaurant offering part Thai (chicken cashew nuts, fried rice, phat thai, curries…), part international (bbq, plancha, mixed salads, home made hamburgers, club sandwich, french fries) cuisine – and of course, cold beers
Luxury villa complexes are arriving in Ao Thalane along the seafront. It makes for a fantastic affordable getaway for with large groups or a family.
The beach areas near some villas do become mud flats at low tide, some guests may feel disappointed as they can not swim in the sea. With your own private villa you can enjoy a private luxury swimming pool and beautiful views, not being able to swim in the sea is not a problem.
