We did our homework... we knew about the floating jetty (not so bad once you get your balance!), the monkeys (although sweet for the first few seconds, turning desperate and aggressive), and possibly far walks to our room. This hotel is only accessable via a boat (there is the monkey trail you can walk for access, but we did not... More

We stayed here for 8 nights recently and had a fabulous time. It truly is an absolutely stunning location. Our two boys loved taking the boat, the monkey trail, e-zone and all the monkey watching. We had a very relaxing stay and moved onto the Sheraton Krabi after this. I preferred the Centara, Sheraton was so huge and spread out,... More

We had read practically every review ever written about this hotel so we were fully prepared for the floating pier, the monkeys and the schedule of the boats at this time of the year. I can honestly say that the hotel exceeded all our expectations. Everything ran smoothly according to plan from the van waiting to collect us at the... More

Our experience of Centara Grand Beach Resort was the holidays the kids were hoping for, from the arrival to board shuttle boat the welcoming did not stop. Yes it was a rough day and one of our party did struggle on day one with the pontoon, but very quickly we moved on and enjoyed the boat transfers for the experience... More

I absolutely loved my stay at Centara Grand in Krabi. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is incredible- stunning views of the rock/ocean. I thought it was cool but also a bit annoying that it was only accessible by boat. The shuttle boats run frequently, so it is not difficult to leave the cove but there is nothing... More

My cousin and I decided to holiday at this resort because we were under the impression (based on the official website) that it was a beautiful resort and would be a great place to relax. However, from the moment we arrived to town, we had to take a boat to the most rocky/bumpy jetty we have ever encountered. There is... More

3 days into a 5 day booking here and I cannot speak highly enough of the resort or the staff. There is a huge amount of information here (Tripadvsor) regarding the boat transport and the jetty as well as its relatively remote location. The rooms are lovely, the food has been fantastic, the staff friendly and polite. Sometimes nature impacts... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. Arriving from a 5 star hotel in Kho Phan Ang, we were being a bit snobby and worrying that it wouldn't be as nice as this was our last stop before home. We were wrong, it was really nice. Staff were very friendly, breakfasts were good. Room was immaculate. We had the hot tub on the... More

We arrived at Krabi Airport and caught our own taxi to the pier. Go to the taxi counter at the airport as it is a fixed price and cheaper than through the resort. You need to pre book your seat on the shuttle boat to the resort if you want smooth travel. We organised this through the resort directly and... More
