Centara Ao Nang Beach Resort & Spa

Krabi, Thailand

The hotel

Reserving itself a relatively peaceful pitch along the otherwise popular postcard-perfect Ao Nang Beach, this sea-facing sanctuary gives you the best of both worlds — seaside seclusion and all the life and fun of Krabi. This brand new beachfront hotel is ideal for those wanting to lounge by the large free-form pool or beachfront terrace during the day and take a short stroll down to Krabi’s local restaurants and bars for the evening. It also comes with all the benefits of being a new hotel on the block, including bright contemporary décor, the latest in-room mod cons, and long-favoured luxuries like Thai-inspired treatments at Spa Cenvaree.

This is a brand new hotel and unfortunate it is still in preparation mode. Not all rooms and facilities are ready, the road to the hotel is very bumpy due to constructions on the way and it lack a little bit of charm. However, the staff is is very friendly, food was very good, the place of it is amazing near to beautiful cliffs, this is the only hotel near Ao Nang beach with direct access to it and overall this hotel looks ok. We thing that in a couple of years once int will be fully ready this hotel will become a must place once in the Ao Nang. Read less

We visited this hotel not long after its opening. The check-in process was slow, despite us being the only people there and also, neither of our Mastercard credit cards worked in their machines.

We visited this hotel not long after its opening. The check-in process was slow, despite us being the only people there and also, neither of our Mastercard credit cards worked in their machines. These cards had worked in all the other hotels and restaurants we had been to in Thailand, so that was an inconvenience. The room was very large and clean, with a big, comfortable bed. No robes or slippers were provided in the room as standard, but there were flip-fops for room use. There are two sizeable pools, one with some slides for children. The poolside bars had extensive menus and the food we had was very good, although pricier than what you would find outside of the hotel. The pool staff were very attentive to my 4 year old nephew and played with him, which he enjoyed. He also had fun in the kids' club. The breakfast was satisfactory. Whilst there was a wide variety of food on offer, the overall quality wasn't great and the coffee machine only provided black coffee. We believe after having operated for a few more months, these issues may be ironed out and as such this wouldn't stop us from staying here again. The location of the hotel was very good, just on the beach, and less than a 10 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of the main strip, where there are lots of food and drink options. Read less

What an absolutely delightful find right in the heart of Ao Nang resort area and beach front as well! A stunning white neo classical/contemporary styled 5 storey buildings around 2 gorgeous pools in azure blue. Nestled beneath the towering limestone cliffs of Krabi's coastline, we could not have found a better hideaway. We had the family residence pool access room and are sure we had the best room in house, thanks to a generous upgrade by their GM. The staff were exceptional and that says a lot in Thailand, when almost everyone are just so wonderful anyway. Located next door to a fantastic beach restaurant plus the resort having its own beach club to maximise views of the sunset, we could not find any reason to be anywhere else for the sunsets. The resort is currently accessible only by dirt unpaved road, but in a matter of months I am sure this place will be buzzing and all transport companies more aware of it. The resort is also 5 minutres walk to the heart of town, the shops, the massage salons, and most importantly the boat center to catch long tails to head out to the islands daily. A new and excellent addition to the Krabi beach scene... well done Centara!! We cant wait to be be back! Read less

A stunning hotel on the beach . Very spacious rooms with very comfortable beds. Restaurants prices are very reasonable for food , drinks are pricey Great for families , kids will love the water slides. The beach is clean and there’s many places to eat and drink although more expensive than the hotel. Breakfast is quite limited , maybe just my opinion , nevertheless what they have is very good quality There is a well stocked gym and you can also request a fitness package free to your room , which consists of yoga mat , 2x 3kg dumbbells a 4kg kettlebell and medicine ball With the option to borrow sports shoes etc I had my hair cut and blown and gel nails done beautifully by a lady who owns the beach salon , a 2 minute walk along the beach , highly recommend her. Ya and her team at reception made our stay just perfect , the staff were all incredibly helpful , check in was easy . They give welcome drinks whilst you wait and cold wet towels. There is no shuttle service to the main little town, but it’s a very nice 5 minute stroll along the beach side straight to the restaurants, bars , tattooist, salons, shops, 7/11 Read less
