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.

We stayed at la playa resort for 11 days. The staf was amazing and so friendly. We got a free upgrade to a deluxe room which was very big, clean and beautiful. We could not have had a nicer experience. Many thanks!

At the La Playa resort, I felt like the king I never deserved to be. We've enjoyed a premier deluxe room which was enormous with a beautiful bath included. The resort itself was clean and well maintained, although signs of the pandemic are definitely visible here and there with some wings still closed or worked on being reopened. The hotel had two pools, both very nice. The rooms that had stairs directly into the pool looked very intriguing. Location was good as well. It is quiet even though it is in the middle of the boulevard and has all the area has to offer on walking distance. The breakfast was very extensive for what I experienced in Thailand. Where most are still in a startup phase and offer a la carte, the full buffet was available at the la playa resort. There is western, Thai, and fruit available with lots of vegetarian options. The Thai options are limited, but well compensated by the western assortment. The broad choice of sweet options was especially worth mentioning. The staff was very helpful, trying to help with suggestions and possibilities the second we arrived. Coming from the lake houses in khao sok, it was initially quite overwhelming. We however listened to their suggestions and they arranged a 125cc motorcycle for 250 baht for 24h. The suggestion for the weekend evening market was a great one. Another suggestion was the restaurant Kodam just 100m down the road. It turned out to be one of the most highly recommended restaurants of Krabi on tripadvisor and google. Like already mentioned, the staff was amazing. I felt pampered to a level I'm not used to. It made me feel a bit uneasy at times, but without a doubt mostly very nice. One of the things I am most grateful about was that during my stay it was my birthday. On a holiday, I do not expect much in terms of traditional celebration. The La Playa hotel however got me a birthdaycake, some fresh fruit and sang for me with the staff during breakfast. Thank you for making it special. Read less
