Words cannot begin to convey how wonderful our stay was. Although the hotel itself has the most amazing pool what set this place apart was unbelievable personalised service from an amazing team of people. From our first arrival at the airport being picked up by the Sofitel driver to our seamless check in we were treated like VIPs. The staff in the club lounge we so delightful and really made our holiday so special. Thank you to Poppyley and her amazingly wonderful team in the club lounge especially for the cards which we will treasure. All food was amazing and buffet breakfast was the best I have ever experienced. Topping off this experience was all of the wonderful staff who waved us off at the end of our 8 days in paradise. Finally a big thank you to housekeeping and maintenance who ensured spotless rooms and no mozzies to be seen. Hope we make it back to see you all again soon. Read less

For the second time we experienced a fantastic, unforgettable holiday in this tropical ***** spa golf and hotel resort. This first class resort is located near Ao Nang and Phi Phi Island. From Krabi International Airport it is only 45min transfer by hotel limousine and can be booked in advance. Already the arrival with the huge lobby is a feast for the eyes! The Sofitel Hotel & Resort "Phokeethra" is located on the seafront on the Muang Beach in Nong Thale and leaves nothing to be desired for young and old! Also in the monsoon season between June - September where rain showers now and then a stay is recommended, because the showers are mostly only very short. All room types are luxuriously furnished and, depending on the category, overlooking the pool and sea. The entire resort is surrounded by a huge freshwater pool with recreational facilities - also a sector for toddlers. In the restaurant "White Lotus" Thai specialties are served friendly. In the "Maya Restaurant" and by the pool, a selection of international dishes and delicacies are served with fine cocktails and refreshing drinks. In the restaurant "Venezia" with a beautiful terrace and sea view, the Italian dishes are highly recommended and finally a fine ice cream in "Le Glacie"! In addition to various excursions and excursions in the area a regular hotel transfer to the fishing village in Ao Nang is offered. Highly recommended are the local restaurant, which can be reached in a few minutes on the beach! We can only recommend this luxury resort with a particularly friendly hospitality! We thank the entire team once again for the spoiled stay. The farewell was not easy for us, but we'll be back; Erwin and Noy Read less

Can't rave about this hotel too much. Our second visit and planning a third. Bertrand and Vincent, the management team, have fine-tuned this hotel. Every member of the staff customer-orientated. Doesn't matter how good the facilities, buildings, restaurants are if the staff aren't friendly it spoils things - definately not the case here. … Read more

Doesn't matter how good the facilities, buildings, restaurants are if the staff aren't friendly it spoils things - definately not the case here. Special thanks to the Club Lounge team led by Khun Poppy, Khun Noodle, Knun Bee, Khun Bella and Knun Ben. A brilliant team and further enhanced our stay. Breakfast is outstanding and varied every day. Breakfast team always happy and cheerful. If you get a chance do try the Indian food at the restaurant.

The property is therapeutic. The beach is just opposite the resort. It also has the biggest swimming pool in all of Thailand. An ideal spot for someone seeking a relaxed retreat in Krabi Islands. A must stay!
