Clean basic hotel, few facilities [beach towels and mats, 2 bikes for loan, fridge and bottled water in room, free breakfast, no kettle in room] Staff are great and very helpful. 7 mins walk to Nopparat Thara Beach, the best in the area, much better beach than Ao Nang. Bars and restaurants close by too
Did not end up staying in the hotel we booked, we were moved to another site weigh bungalows. Was ok had air conditioning. Booking included breakfast and clearly stated on all my paperwork but complex said it was not included. Had to argue about it and he said we had a air conditioned room instead of fan so it was not included. We got it in the end. Not happy about our stay
Stayed here for 3 weeks in March 2014 and already planning to go back for Christmas. This is a small resort located a short distance from the beach, only a 5 minute stroll away. There are 20 bungalows within a very pleasant tropical garden, with a nice pool. The restaurant was very good for breakfast/lunch/dinner and very reasonable. The resort is run and managed by Muslims so no alcohol etc, staff are very pleasant and attentive. We had the superior bungalow which was quite comfortable with aircon, fridge, tv and much better than the standard room. Our room was cleaned every day, clean towels and bedding. The reception staff will arrange trips with pick up at the resort at very reasonable prices. Noppharat beach has enough restaurants all serving excellent food, especially sea food. Ao Nang is only 4 minutes away and free transfer there every hour. Ao Nang is busier with a lot more restaurants,shops etc. We had a great holiday and I can't wait to go back again.

This is a decent enough hotel. The problem for me was the amount of noise.
On the third night, a bus load of tourists we're checking into the hotel at 3:30am and showed absolutely no respect for other guests trying to sleep. The amount of noise was just awful, with people screaming and shouting and running up and down the corridors, slamming doors, shouting etc. I asked the guests politely to be quiet but to no avail.
When I complained to the reception desk, there was nobody there empowered to do anything, and so I had to call back several times to get hold of the manager. I eventually came down stairs to speak with the manager on the phone. Sadly, the rest of the staff thought it was funny that I was complaining and apparently could not understand what the problem was. This wasn't the only occasion when noise was a problem. There were frequently screaming children outside my door around 6am, as well as noisy guests slamming doors.
Aside from noise, I have no other complains and everything else was good. If you're here to party or don't mind noise, then this hotel might be a good choice for you.
Another thing you need to be careful about is mixing this hotel up with Aonang Villa Resort (this one is Viva). I was actually trying to book Aonang Villa Resort when I clicked through to Expedia from Trip Advisor to make the booking. However, instead of seeing information for Aonang Villa, Expedia showed me the details for Aonang Viva. Next time I'll be more careful.
A very good resort for couple or family for holidays, located a bit away from Ao Nang beaches but offers tranquility and beautiful surrounding with tropical trees, river and a comfort to muslim as the hotel is Muslim owner and provide Halal food. Receptionist and hotel staff were very nice, and provide good services include free tuk tuk transfer to town and nearest beaches. The room rate also very resonable. Overall, it give more value for your money and a peace to your travel.
