Loved every minute of our 4 night stay. Only accessible by boat, low tide walk or along a very precarious monkey trail...not an issue though! My only gripe was the WiFi was terrible, but this is not somewhere you come to browse Internet or catch up on emails.

The resort is located on a private secluded beach and is accessible only by boat. The shuttle to the town of Ao Nang is operated by the hotel, is well organized and is free of charge. We stayed for a week and enjoyed every minute from our arrival to our departure. The Hotel Management is very professional and all staff... More

If you have trouble walking this is not the hotel for you, but this is what helps make it so special. There are allot of steps to most of the rooms. You get to the hotel by boat which has a long floating jetty but if the sea is rough or extremely low tide then you have to take the... More

We stayed for 4 nights and loved every second. Location- absolutely stunning. The resort is located on a private beach, approachable only by boat. The view is amazing, second only to reiley. Due to the fact the place is secluded, the resort offers long tail boat services both to Ao nang and reiley (not for free though). Staff- extremely friendly... More

Before choosing the right hotel in Krabi my wife and I spent quite a lot of time making sure we picked the prefect place. We read quite a few mixed reviews about the Centara Grand which made selecting it a bit of a gamble. It was however a fantastic decision and I have nothing but good things to say about... More

We spent two weeks in Thailand at the end of January, staying in six different hotels along the way and this was by far the best!

We spent few days in family with my teen boy during new years eve period. The resort is amazing with a very nice place and the fact you can only access it via boat (unless you try the monkey trail) is really peacefull.
