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.

Great family hotel, brilliant staff - who keep the hotel spotless - no mean feet in the rainy season. Just beware at check out - housekeeping do not refresh used cutlery which the hotel will accuse you of stealing. An annoying and petty end to a good stay. Breakfast is very basic.

We stayed in a superior room. Nice, clean, spacious, modern room with all required amenities including a large balcony with chairs. Good Internet access. Breakfast was included and although the selections were plentiful the food quality was only average but totally eatable and you will definitely find something to fill your belly. As there are plenty of excellent dining options in Ao Nung we did not eat any other meals at the hotel. Beyond the overall quality of our room the pool was the highlight. (Actually, I believe this hotel has two pools, but we spent our time lounging around the larger, primary pool with swim up bar. Very, very nice pool for sunbathing, reading a book or taking a swim. Overall, this is a great hotel for chilling out and relaxing. As for the location of this hotel, it is a 5-10-minute tuk tuk ride to the main dining, drinking and nightlife area but the overall quality and value of the hotel and its great pool more than make up for any inconvenience this may cause especially considering that Ao Nang beach is nothing special and not really suitable for sunbathing and swimming. Right outside of the hotel however, through the rear entry behind the main pool is a local neighborhood featuring several excellent Thai restaurants. We ate most of your lunches at these restaurants. The night market is also just a short walk away from the rear entrance as is a 7/11 and other convenience stores and services such as laundry and massage. We liked the Krabi La Playa Resort so much that we have already booked a return stay this coming October. Read less
