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.

Hotel has such a great location tucked down a side road from all the noise of the main roads but right in the middle of everything.. 5 mins to night market, loads of restaurants and bars any way you choose to walk and the beach with the long boats is 10/15 mins walk away. Towels plentiful, rooms serviced well, love the beach bags and the mats… Read more
Hotel has such a great location tucked down a side road from all the noise of the main roads but right in the middle of everything.. 5 mins to night market, loads of restaurants and bars any way you choose to walk and the beach with the long boats is 10/15 mins walk away. Towels plentiful, rooms serviced well, love the beach bags and the mats being in the room too. Breakfast is enough... Some days better than others with the choices on offer... But the fruit!!! Everywhere and I mean everywhere even street stalls have perfectly ripe fruit and would not serve you obviously very pale underripe rock hard mango and melon .. been like that every day .. such a shame when it should be as good as the street stalls! Pools and pool area are wonderful and clean. Overall a lovely choice of hotel . Read less

To start great location to be in hotel was very close to food/shopping streets and 5 minutes walk to two different lively night markets where the food was superb. Hotel itself was good enough. Room was cleaned daily and adequately. Breakfast was average, had enough choice as were not fussy eaters but others could struggle as it could of done with more. Hotel staff on the whole were good, not the most friendly but always a language barrier I guess. Pool bar was good when you could eventually get served as staff weren't always around often. Only other slight negative was the Wi-Fi which seems to disconnect every so often and my partners phone struggled to connect sometimes. Read less

- Bring room fresheners because the rooms smell terrible. - Being was plugs because the AC is very loud - Bring water because they charge you for everything - Check your sheets because they probably have stains - Bring your own hair dryer because the ones at the hotel are very weak - Get a bigger data plan because the hotel WI-FI constantly… Read more

Have no complaints whatsoever. Lovely clean hotel and friendly staff. It's just a short walk (2 to 3 mins) to the main street that leads to the beach or if you leave the hotel from the rear, there is another busy street with a market at the end. Really loved the hotel and location and would book again if returning to Thailand.
