WOW, where do I start, I have stayed at this Sofitel 2-3 times over the last 10 years but this was the first time I had visited with my family. My family and I can't thank the Sofitel team enough for making our stay and my son's 3rd birthday so magical. We checked in on the 17th December for 4 nights and it was amazing start to finish. To begin with I emailed the hotel a few weeks before our stay to ask if they knew anywhere I could order a Spiderman birthday cake for my son, they said they didn't know of any but that's when they started with their amazing plan. The day we checked in all was smooth and normal but then all of a sudden Spiderman turned up in the lobby to welcome my son to the hotel. Once we reached the room they had decorated it brilliantly for our son. A great gesture but this was only the beginning, on our son's actually birthday they prepared a wonderful surprise Spiderman birthday cake (complimentary), which the staff presented whilst singing Happy Birthday. That evening we booked the hotel Italian restaurant and they surprised us yet again by giving us a wonderful private area decorated top to bottom in Spiderman colours. They then presented the cake and birthday card with not just one super hero but seven super heroes! That night we got back to the room to find even more surprise decorations. We can't thank the hotel and team enough for making this not only an amazing trip but the best birthday trip a child could ask for! Highly recommend to any families looking for a memorable family holiday! Thank you! Read less

Traveled in a pretty bleak period for tourism, there were less than 10 other families at the resort during our stay - so pretty much had the entire property to ourselves. A few of the normal amenities that one would expect were curtailed because of the low guest numbers such as - no breakfast buffet had to order from a set menu; a few restaurants were closed, no club room through the day etc but the staff tried their level best to make our stay enjoyable and we really appreciated all the little gestures. Also went for a short trip to Hong Island through the hotel - worth it. Read less

Sofitel Krabi was just a breath of fresh air for us. We booked directly with the hotel and they had a promotion of a complimenyary speed boat tour to Hong Island for us. Our guide was very knowledgeble and climbed up to the newly built view point with us. We spent half a day there, which was one of the highlights of our trip. Front office, housekeeping and restaurant staff were always very helpful and kind during our stay. The hotel had precautions in place for covid, and we felt very relaxed in the restaurants too. Never over crowded... We stayed in the family room which was spacious enough for 4 of us. The interiors were Victorian style, with lots of wooden furniture, had a great vibe. On our second night we moved to a pool access suite which was just amazing. Kids loved it, so worth it. The main pool has an inflatable obstacle course, nicknamed "survivor island" by my kids. They never even stepped foot into the kids club but I saw there wer younger kids joining activities there. Overall this was a very relaxing holiday for us, getting away from the crowds and enjoing beautiful nature and luxurious hotel with great service! Read less
