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.

For a 3*+ hotel it was fine. It was clean and comfortable. Little character or Thai influence. Too many young trainees amongst staff. Staff generally helpful and friendly. Would not consider it to be that close to beach.

We were looking for a reasonable hotel with a good location not far from the beaches. The rooms were spacious and clean. The beds were comfy and large enough. Our room had a good balcony over looking the main pool area. The hotels breakfast was great a lot to choose from and the staff ever so helpful. The pool swim up bar was good and very reasonable prices especially during their happy hour. All 4 Pools were good size. The main Pool area had 3 different pools. And the emerald pool is in the separate annex building but still able to use. We felt all the staff were very friendly and hospitable. A special thanks to Pon who made us very welcome. We hope to visit again when we are in the area. Read less

Party of 6 adults stayed for 2 weeks. Rooms clean and spacious, staff could not have been more helpful or friendly- special mention to Pon, Nana, Mon, pool bar staff, the lady who organised our trips and the lovely night bar man - pool area very clean and no trouble getting a sunbeams at any time of the day. One warning the pool bar surface gets very hot so beware! The hotel is ideally situated for the beach (8 min walk), shops, markets, restaurants and bars but in a quiet location. We would certainly return to this hotel and soon I hope. Read less
