I think what impressed me the most was that this hotel, despite being located on the main strip in Ao Nang, has created a peaceful oasis where you feel like you are a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the street. The complex is quite large but is nicely spread out on the side of a cliff and is comprised of various terraced blocks of rooms, all with amazing sea views.
If you are staying in Ao Nang for longer than a few days and want to mix things up a bit, I highly recommend checking into the Alisea Boutique Hotel. A lot more affordable than the Cliff Beach Resort, this hotel has a lot of character. From the moment you arrive you will notice the mosaic tiles and the beautiful stain glass windows wherever you look.
