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.

For our recent 5 night Krabi trip we spent 2 nights here and 3 nights at Villa Cha Cha. This hotel was more expensive but far superior in terms of facilities and service. Our hotel rooms were right beside the pool so our little kids could just swim out from the room (I never realized how convenient this is). The food at the restaurant was ok, a little expensive, but the breakfast buffet was excellent. The beach access was also very convenient and the best thing was the service of the staff. They were all cool, calm and very polite. Most of all they were helpful as opposed to the staff at Villa Cha Cha who always made us feel like we were disturbing them from their 'duties'. Also, my kids loved the bunk beds in the room. Nice touch! Read less

I am someone who always reads the worst reviews and my skip the best ones. I don't review often but on reading all the worst reviews about this propert, I could not stop myself from writing this review. Most ppl here are talking about early checkin and late checkout which are beyond the contrl of the staff at high occupancy dates and destinations. Can they turn out someone from the room to give you early checkin? If you have been awake all night, thats bad planning and not taking professional help in trip booking. Why blame it on them? If the pool has too many kids or its noisy, Are the staff doing that? Hospitality staff work very hard to make you comfortableeven in difficult conditions and stress, Just because you are paying for accomodation, is it reasonable to treat them as your personal servants? Centara is one of the best hospitality chains and they want to serve us if we allow them to do so. Taking professional travel services can save you most of these problems! Cheers!! Read less

This hotel is located about 40 minutes for the airport. It is brand new and while some of the finishes were a bit sloppy (eg :paint not cleaned up) it was fresh and clean. The beds were very comfortable. They don't offer family rooms for more than 4 so we booked an interconnecting room as there is 5 of us. They are pretty standard hotel rooms… Read more
This hotel is located about 40 minutes for the airport. It is brand new and while some of the finishes were a bit sloppy (eg :paint not cleaned up) it was fresh and clean. The beds were very comfortable. They don't offer family rooms for more than 4 so we booked an interconnecting room as there is 5 of us. They are pretty standard hotel rooms with no real Thai style feeling which was a little disappointing, but they were very comfortable and airconditioned. The restaurant food was fresh and yummy, we loved the buffet breakfast. My husband and Son have multiple food allergies and the staff were very attentive to our needs. The hotel has 2 pools and a water slide. the hotel is right on the beach and has bar service to the beach side seats. The view is beautiful. Great place to watch the sun set with a cocktail. The staff were very helpful and friendly, Most of them spoke English. My boys loved the kids club! If you follow the path down along the beach its a 5 minute walk to the main shopping strip. Lots of restaurants, tourist wears and tour companies. We would Love to go back and stay again. Read less

Nice and very helpful staff. Located at the beach. Breakfast is delicious. Lovely rooms and pool areas. Note that you can hear the long tail boats at the pool by the beach. The transportation to the islands is by long tail boats and therefore you can hear the “traffic” of long tail boats passing by.

When first arriving hotel staff have limited English which is difficult. Although the hotel is only a few months old it already looks tired Pool next to beach very dangerous tiles are very slippery and both my children 10 & 11 fell over hard with bruising, we were very lucky they did not break any bones. Other pool with slide tiles were much better. Had to ring reception ever afternoon to get our rooms cleaned. Rams reception for sewing kit and they had now idea. Buffet breakfast very average and not great quality, only bonus is that we did not over it. Pizza at pool very good although staff never come to see if you want anything. When checking out the accused me of taking laundry bag instead of asking how my stay was, I got pretty mad. They also were not helpful in getting us a taxi, my husband ended up going to town and bringing one to the hotel. Manager came to talk to me and wrote down some of my concerns explaining she will bring up the information in a meeting. Let’s hope they do something about the pools. The best thing about this hotel is the location although would not stay here again. Read less
