Krabi La Playa Resort

Krabi, Thailand

Virgin rating

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.

Fantastic hotel and very good located. The hotel is really good. The rooms are spacious, the swimming pool(s) are big and the employees are always so helpful. The rooms are good. I only had a problem with my shower head ( the piece that it is attached to the wall) that was loose. So whenever you switched on the water, the shower head started spinning uncontrollably. I mentioned it to frontdesk, and they had someone come up immediately. Whatever he did, didn’t help, but I am certain that if I went back to the front desk, they would have had someone checking it again. They are super helpful, but I had come to learn that more rooms were having this problem with the shower heads, so I just found a “workaround”. Breakfast is good, they offer all sort of options to there is always something you would like. The only thing I missed at the hotel was a proper restaurant where you could have a good meal. They do have a menu and you can order simple food, but if you compare it to other hotels in the region that do have a good restaurant attached to it, that definitely made me miss it. That’s the only reason I couldn’t give it a 5 star review. Read less

We are travelling through Thailand an the La Playa was the fourth hotel on our trip. It was absolutely excellent to say the least. We had a twin room and I had a terribly cough so I couldn’t sleep in the air conditioning and kept my friend awake.

We are travelling through Thailand an the La Playa was the fourth hotel on our trip. It was absolutely excellent to say the least. We had a twin room and I had a terribly cough so I couldn’t sleep in the air conditioning and kept my friend awake. They were fully booked but went up and beyond to move things around so we could have a family room where we each had our own bedroom for only 1000 baht extra for 2 nights. Especially the hostess Katie was the best. She was absolutely on top of things and seemed to remember all guests and their room numbers from the top of her head, including all their requests. Impressive. The hotel itself was super clean, the pool was great and the breakfast very good! It was in a busy area of Ao Nang and very touristy. If that’s not your thing, don’t go, but we hardly noticed anything except for people leaving their towels on the sunbeds as soon as they could in the morning (rude). Overall a perfect stay, bit far from the beach but not worth it there anyway, there’s a much nicer beach 10 minutes by boat (take a longtail boat to Railey beach). Read less
