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.

Me and my boyfriend had the most amazing stay here at Christmas! The hotel is beautiful and so clean, the staff went above & beyond to ensure you were happy and comfortable and also cater for anything extra you require. I have a dairy allergy and Mon made sure I had soya milk every morning for breakfast time & always let me know what foods I could have. The hotel is in ideal location so close to both beaches and all the shops/bars/restaurants. The hotel had some lovely little touches that made it feel extra special. The breakfast was lovely, so fresh & had variety. We had a buffet dinner for the Christmas Eve & New Year’s Eve party which were one of the best dinners we had in Krabi. The party they put on for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve was so fun and the decorations were beautiful, a lot of effort was put in to provide guests with an extra special Christmas & new year. We loved this hotel and was extremely grateful for the staff and their service. If I return to Krabi, which I plan too, I will be staying here again. Pon also made a huge effort to check on us each day. Attached pictures of meals, the party decorations, sunsets from our balcony. Read less

A lovely hotel. Pool area is excellent. At breakfast there is adequate choice. Rooms are adequate with loads of storage space. Had an excellent room overlooking the pool. The staff are very helpful. A bit distressed to see a little kitten which seemed to live under the spa area which desperately needed some food. A little too far from the nicest beach area for me - a 30 minute walk away. I would not return but did have an enjoyable stay. Read less
