Centara Beach Resort – Ao Nang

Here is a photo I took the other day after climbing the hill at Centara Resort in Ao Nang. This is a land-locked private beach and pool resort, you have to climb up and down a couple hundred steps to reach it, or just take a long-tail boat around to reach it. It is a really beautiful beach and not near any sewage, like part of Ao Nang is.

What do you think? Nice place to stay? You haven’t even seen the accommodations yet! They’re lovely!
