Krabi Thailand A True Paradise

 

Amazing Beautiful Krabi. True Paradise 

I love Krabi, its a stunning island and only a one hour flight from Bangkok, so its a regular place for Nui, Leo and myself to visit for long weekends. Our chosen hotel is the fantastic 5 Star Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas. Its located not far from Ao Nang, but the cool thing about this resort is that it is on its own island, and the only hotel on the island, so it makes its super private and relaxed.

The resort and hotel is backed by soaring cliffs and fronted by a white sand beach. You get to the resort on a private boat from the Nopporathara pier which takes around 10 minutes, every time we do this trip there is a genuine excitement when we approach the resort, Its a breathtaking sight arriving at the resort. The hotel  is nestled in abundant tropical foliage and 1000 year old rock formations.

 

Beautiful Rooms, Amazing Views

Centara Grand Beach has 2 outdoor pools and a spa, private beach, and a host of non motorised water activities, including kayaking, diving, and waterboarding.  The rooms offer a private balcony with garden or ocean views, there are various room categories, including private pool villas.

But we love the Deluxe suites on the high floors with their own large wrap around balcony and private jacuzzi, outside dining area and complete with 2 sun beds, which are prefect for a morning coffee watching the sunrise over the mountains, or a glass of champagne at sunset.

There are 5 restaurants, including Thai, Japanese and International, and a really great beach club. During the day the beach club is more of a relaxed poolside/beachside restaurant, but a night becomes more of a fine dining chilled out place with themed buffet nights and entertainment, the Seafood buffet is awesome, highly recommend you try this is your staying at the hotel.

I could write so much more about this hotel, but that is what Trip Advisor is for, but if you are considering this hotel, I highly recommend it for families and couples.

Note also as its on its own island there isn’t much to do at night apart from eat and chill out, which is exactly why we go there, but you can take a long tail boat to town at night and enjoy the local town of Ao Nang, with many cheaper bars and restaurants.
