Phang Nga lodging with view of limestones?

We want to stay in Phang Nga area/bay and have a hotel with views of the limestone rocks. Is that even possible? Looking at detailed map views of the Phang Nga Bay it looks like there isnt really room for any lodging. Some of the recommended hotels are on the Andaman Sea side and from those pictures it doesnt appear to have limestone rocks on that side. Is that an accurate assessment?

That is an accurate assessment. You need to go well out into the Bay to view the limestone formations.

You have two alternative options though:

i) You can enjoy a very simple Homestay on Koh Panyi (or Panyee), familiarly known as the Muslim Floating Village which is in the entrance to the Bay with really close views of a limestone formation as it is right next to it and of others in the distance. See www.hotelkohchang.com/koh-panyi-homestay.php for further information and Google Koh Panyi for more images. Whilst the island is busy and commercialised during the day as it is a stopping off point for meals, drinks or souvenirs or just sight-seeing for day trippers, when they have gone you will be part of a unique fishing community. I haven't stayed there personally but a friend rates it as one of her best experiences in Thailand.

ii) You can enjoy fabulous land and sea views of limestone formations in Krabi and enjoy trips to the small islands nearby as well as to Phi Phi and Phang Nga Bay. More info on the Krabi Forum.
