Easy to walk into the local town and there is a shuttle bus into Ao Nang. (when you go to Ao Nang don't go into the foreign owned bars and restaurants, go to locally owned, head and shoulders above the rest). Sofitel staff were also were very patient when trying to learn the Thai language. Overall the stay was Dee Mak Mak food was Aroy Mak Mak especially at the pool bar. Read less

And this time, it was for our son first anniversary. The team members are so nice and nothing is troublesome for them. You really feel the passion in them. Thank you to Vincent, the Lounge Team, the Restaurant Team and Kids Club Team who always give us this heart-warm feeling each time. See you all next year. PS: The frozen show on our first night was so cute :) Read less

It was not first time I stay in this hotel. My husband and I love to come back here because of natural and we always have warm welcome from staff. We came here for 1 night for celebrate our wedding anniversary. Thank you to arrange same room and nice set up on the bed. Cake and chocolate are super good as usual.Breakfast have a lot of choice as well. I loved organic yogurt and hot chocolate. We got invitation from General Manager to join Management Cocktails on Friday. When we arrived, we saw General Manager (French) looking at me from head to toe and I can feel that he is looking me down because I’m Thai and travelling with Fa-Rang husband. Even my husband is French and he can feel it too. We stayed only 30 min in Management cocktails and still waiting greeting from General Manager but he talked with French guest so we decide to leave because I don’t like this feeling for looking down people. Thank you Bar Manager and Mobeen, they are very nice and they are not looking down at me. During check out , we met Resort Manager. He came to ask for feedback during stay and we shared our feelings to him. He apologized us and offered dinner with wine for next stay. We denied it because we didn’t want any compensation. We just want to share our feedback to you. We told him as well for Sofitel My Bed that you was not provide in the room. PS. Swimming pool was dirty and building need to repaint Read less

We have just stayed at the Sofitel Krabi for the 4th time in the last 4 years. It is the type of hotel that just makes you want to return. We like the quiet time of the year for tourists (October). The weather is a bit cooler and although thunderstorms are fairly common, they were limited to the afternoon periods so the early morning was the time to get about sightseeing. Most mornings (from 7am) we had the swimming pool to ourselves and it is a big, big pool at a perfect temperature. I've been a Platinum member with Accor since 2014 and this is where you can really enjoy the benefits. We were upgraded to a suite which made it feel like our home away from home. The suite was large and comfortable with everything we needed. The executive lounge was brilliant. The lounge staff were mainly the same people as the previous year so it was good to catch up with Poppy and Noodle again. By the end of the week we had also met Kai Dow, Bella and Jip. As both my wife and myself are creatures of habit, they all knew our preferences for the evening drinks. Starting with Champagne and followed by the same red wine that has been on the menu for the last three years. It is a French GSM called Parallel 45. Now that we had mellowed, it was time to listen to live music at the Explorer Bar. The musicians usually change during each week but we had the same husband and wife duo each evening. The husband played acoustic guitar while his wife sang and played different percussion instruments. The songs were in English from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s and each of the seven nights that we were there, the songs changed with only a few classics being repeated. It is a relaxing environment to listen to live music while having a cold beer. The musicians also sang requests from the audience. I requested Neil Young's Heart of Gold which they performed brilliantly. Another night I requested Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen but they didn't know the song. However, they learnt the music and words to this song over the next couple of days and performed it on our last night. Thank you, thank you so much. The bar staff also made the evenings fun. Thanks to Koh Phangan, Taling Ngam and Krabi (not their names but their home towns). The buffet breakfast is another highlight. Many healthy choices with a variety of cuisines. I just loved the honey from the honeycomb. The staff were all helpful but special thanks to May and Jinny for our final breakfast. We will be back again next year! Read less
