Krabi La Playa Resort

Krabi, Thailand

The hotel

The gorgeous gardens and pools at Krabi La Playa Resort provide a great getaway, offering up endless hours of relaxation. One of the resort’s swimming pool is pretty traditional, a series of interconnecting pools accompanied by sunbeds, poolside dining, and swim-up bar with the other ‘Emerald Pool’ is something a bit different. Both stretch right up to some of the hotel’s renovated rooms and suites, allowing guests to step right into the water from their terrace. The two acre gardens are just as inviting, with their own bar and seating spots. And, if that’s not quite enough space to relax, you could always head to the sands of Ao Nang and Noppharat Thara beaches, 150 meters away, with shopping, dining and nightlife nearby.

We absolutely love this hotel and are currently staying here for the 9th time. We have stayed in many other hotels in Ao Nang but none come close to Krabi La Playa. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed. The location is also great, half way between the two main beaches in the area. As returning guests we were welcomed like old friends.… Read more

We actually stayed at the sister property across the street but were given access to all this resort had to offer as well. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, always greeting with a smile. Many different swimming pools on the property give you options. Swim up bar and full service restaurant have excellent food and great service.

My sister and I went here for a massage with our daughters, the massage was very average, they seemed to bring people in from out of the hotel because they were doing 5 at a time. My sister and I laughed about how our older 2 had their boobs rubbed (only in Thailand) but my daughter was born with a deformed shoulder and the massage ladies were laughing and pointing at her shoulder making fun of her. How disgusting that people can even be so cruel, she is 15 and already extremely self conscious. I hope that many people read this and chose to stay away from this place. Not everyone is perfect but no one should feel belittled because of the you are born. Read less
