“Our resort has been designed with generous sized rooms and luxurious villas that offer maximum privacy,” says Mr Chatchawan. “Our dining concept is an exciting one, and we have leisure options that will appeal to couples, families, and small to medium sized groups. Said Chatchawan Pankudrua, Group general manager of Aonang Ville Co.
“We also have a beautiful boutique-size function room perfect for small meetings or intimate parties.
“This is a very exclusive part of Krabi, and our beachfront location along with the proximity to the world-famous Shell Fossil Beach gives us a great advantage in attracting guests to the increasingly popular destination of Krabi.
“Our sister resort at Aonang opened almost 30 years ago and consistently enjoys the highest occupancy rates in Krabi, so we are very confident in the potential for The ShellSea.” He said.
The ShellSea is set directly on a 300-metre white-sand beach that links directly with the famous shell fossil plate, thereby offering guests classic beachfront resort relaxation along with the opportunity to explore one of Krabi’s prime attractions.
“Our sandy beach leads directly to Shell Fossil Beach, which is within easy strolling distance,” says Mr Chatchawan. “There are only two other fossil beaches like this known to exist in the world, and so it is a source of fascination for everyone.”
The ShellSea’s elegant interior design for rooms, restaurants and public areas has been done by Thailand-based August Design Consultant Co.
Guestrooms include Sea View rooms and Beach Front rooms, each with their own private balcony; Beach Front Pool Access rooms, on the ground floor; Sea Villas, each with their own pool and private terrace; and a Grand Villa, with its own pool and a full 180-degree view of the ocean from its beachfront setting.
