AWA Resort, Kai Bae beach


The AWA Resort opened in late 2014 and was an immediate hit.  It’s from the same owner as The Dewa Resort on Klong Prao beach, which is well known for it’s unique architecture.  So it was interesting to see what the AWA Resort would look like.  Turns out they did a good job of making what could have been run of the mill hotel blocks into something special.

The three floor high atrium / reception with huge doors sets the scene and from this guests walk through to the pool which runs the length of the hotel to the beach.   There’s over 120 rooms here, so having enough poolside space was always going to be an issue.  The super-long pool does the job though.

There were some teething troubles when the resort opened.  But now that systems are in place and the staff are accustomed to the new resort, they seem to be ironed out and it gets consistently good reviews from guests.  

It’s located adjacent to The Chill and Gajapuri Resort, two other excellent places to stay.  So if you’re planning on booking a 4 star hotel on Kai Bae beach it’s just a matter of deciding which of these three suits you best.  If it comes down to money then AWA Resort will be the cheapest.  The compromise is that it is the largest and most crowded.

Note that the cheaper Hillside rooms at The AWA are in the inland annexe, rather than on the beach side of the main road.  The upside of these rooms is that they look out onto a large garden area and are in low rise units.  You won’t get the sea views but it isa very nice ambiance. 

High Season room rates are from 3,300 Baht per night.
