Krabi – Best in Class for Luxury Hotels and Resorts

There is no doubt about it – luxury accommodation is what Krabi does best! Krabi basks in a hard won reputation for providing visitors with an impressive range of luxury hotels and resorts, that rank among the finest in the country. And, even if you count yourself among the most discerning of travellers, you can’t fail to be impressed by what’s on offer. When it comes to sheer opulence and aesthetically pleasing surroundings, Krabi’s five star hotels, resorts and stylish villas are truly in a class of their own. Yet incredibly, many remain affordable, particularly when compared to their equivalents in Europe or other worldwide travel destinations. This is especially true of the serviced villa option, a modern holiday concept that combines chic living accommodation, private facilities, intimate surroundings and a discreet tailor-made service with a choice of optional extras, all at highly competitive prices.

Krabi’s five star hotels and resorts offer much more than just a room and a view in a sought after location, they sell an entire experience in which reality is momentarily suspended. In addition to immaculately manicured grounds and beautifully appointed rooms, premier hotels and resorts in Krabi boast an extensive range of amenities including a choice of swimming pools, spa and leisure facilities and in some cases, private beaches. Pampered guests can take full advantage of a relaxing assortment of health and beauty treatments, including traditional Thai massage and can enjoy gourmet dining in a selection of on-site, indoor and al fresco restaurants, safe in the knowledge that they can work off any excess in the fully equipped gym. Top hotels aiming to distinguish themselves from the competition will even provide such indulgences as a personal butler to cater to their guest’s every whim.

Ao Nang, with its picturesque beach and plethora of tourist amenities, is by far the most popular tourist destination in Krabi and hotels in the area tend to be of an exceptional standard. The fabulous Krabi La Playa Resort, conveniently located just a short walk from Ao Nang beach and the sensational Rayavadee Krabi Resort, close to the scenic Krabi Marine National Park, both offer first class accommodation in breathtaking surroundings.

Klong Muang, a pretty beach area just north of Ao Nang, is rapidly developing a name for exclusive hotels and select resorts and the dramatic cliff top is even home to a Royal Summer Palace. If you want majestic accommodation of your own though, the award winning Tubkaak Boutique Resort is more than fit for a king – located directly on the beach in a dreamlike setting, this plush resort affords splendid views over the breathtaking Ko Hong archipelago. And the independent villa style accommodation (in lieu of traditional hotel rooms) and the wonderful spa facility are a particular draw.

Another celebrated Krabi hotel featuring private villas in lush, tropical gardens is the fantastic Phulay Bay Ritz Carlton. These extravagant bungalows benefit from unique finishing touches such as rainforest showers and delightful outdoor bathroom facilities and many come with a sea view. At the prestigious Krabi Sheraton, where the customer service is second-to-none, lucky guests can make use of expansive grounds housing tennis courts and fashionable martini bars and soak up the prime, beach front location.

Honeymooners and newlyweds often opt for the romantic setting of the Centara Grand Beach set in its own secluded bay or the Krabi Thai Village Resort near the stunning Phra Nang Bay, where attentive staff know precisely when to melt into the background. The Centara Grand is due to open a much anticipated sister resort (the Centara Grand Lanta Island Resort) on the tranquil island of Koh Lanta later this year and is definitely one to keep an eye out for.

Two other recent additions to the Krabi hotel scene include the glamorous Mercure Krabi Deevena in Ao Nang and the sumptuous Beyond Resort Krabi which opened their doors in 2011 and are already causing quite a stir.

So, if you have the cash to splash on a lavish Krabi hotel or resort, your only difficulty will be in choosing from such a vast and exciting selection!
