Quickest way from Phuket airport to Aonang?

I will be staying at the Centara Grand and will need to get from the airport in Phuket to the resort on Ao Nang Beach. Is ferry the best idea? Is there a ferry shedule available somewhere? The only one I found says ferry is at 8:30AM but we will not arrive to the airport until 10:05AM. How about van service? Which option is quicker? How much time do they both take? Thank you in advance for any help you can give me. :) (March 15th if that matters)

Quickest would be a taxi, maybe 2 hours minimum up to 3 hours dependent on traffic and how fast the driver was. 146 km.

But it would be much preferable to fly into Krabi airport which is only 30 to 40 minutes to Ao Nang.

Fly into Krabi airport, if you're planning to stay in Ao Nang, about 25-50mins by taxi

If you choose to fly into Phuket airport, then taxi is the quickest way to get to Ao Nang, but it will be over 2 hour drive to get where you want to be

Problem is that I am coming from Siem Reap and the flight to Krabi would involve a long layover in Bangkok I believe. :( How about a private speedboat? Is that possible? How do I find one? I assume you advise against the ferry? Does the ferry only depart at 8:30?

Thanks for all the help. I think the best option would be car service as you said.

yes , easiest is a taxi to get dropped of at the Longtail Ticket office to get a longtail boat to the Centara Grand unless you have arranged with the hotel to pick you up with their boat .

Private taxi takes 2 and a half hours and costs 2,300 baht we used Krabi Shuttle and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. They’ll meet you with a sign at arrivals.
