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.

This was our 6th time in 13 years to this hotel and is always excellent value. With a good location to reach all the parts of Ao nang and lovely pool, great staff and good choice food. New for us this time was that it's also within walking distance of the Landmark Night Market, which has an amazing choice of food and shopping.

We’re halfway through our stay here and having a fabulous time. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The Thai massage was wonderful. Breakfast is fresh and delicious and the pools are fab. Rooms are all huge too and the aircon in our room is 10/10 which is big must for us in this heat. Reception team are great and happily booked trips, bikes and restaurants too. The location is perfectly tucked away from the main strip too. The gardens are also stunning. Whilst we would absolutely come back and stay here, I’m not sure I’d say it is a 4 star resort. The first night we checked in we walked bare feet around the room and realised we had black feet, the cleaning for us has been a little poor. You can also see some quite unprofessional repairs about the place, whether it’s the thick wobbly sealant and grouting in the bathroom or the expanding foam around the pool. Equally the massage hut was very basic and hot with no spa music or candles etc which is kind of what you expect from a 4* priced ‘Spa treatment’. Overall a wonderful hotel clearly run with great enthusiasm from the team and with a few improvements it could be even better. Read less

We stayed at La Playa resort for 2 weeks and we can’t praise our stay enough. Everything was perfect, from the very warm welcome, cleanliness, help from staff, great breakfast to the fantastic location. We travelled with 2 school age children whose birthday was during our stay and the staff went above and beyond to make their day memorable and special. The staff is fantastic- friendly, warm, welcoming and very helpful. The swimming pool is wonderful with plenty of shade. I could not recommend this place enough. Read less

Stayed at this hotel 4 nights and wow, the staff are the most unhelpful, and unfriendliest I have ever encountered. Everything we asked of them, their initial response was that they cannot help. We encountered no willingness to help, and lies too. Because a few moments later, their response would change and could “sort of” help. Example: the lobby… Read more
Stayed at this hotel 4 nights and wow, the staff are the most unhelpful, and unfriendliest I have ever encountered. Everything we asked of them, their initial response was that they cannot help. We encountered no willingness to help, and lies too. Because a few moments later, their response would change and could “sort of” help. Example: the lobby has a coffee station but it was dirty and no clean spoons. I asked for a clean spoon and they said “Sorry, no clean spoons” - why then have a coffee station at the lobby? Why not go get a clean one from the kitchen? Surely there is one clean spoon in this whole hotel. But they just did not want to help us with any request made. This is a small example of MANY that occurred during our stay. Shocking service. So unfriendly. Will never be back. Read less
