The hotel offers an excellent level of service and a high quality of accommodation. There is no question that they have an eye to high pricing and the cost of goods within the hotel is roughly equivalent to that of the UK (which is astronomical in relation to the relative salary of most Thai people). That being said, we indulged... More

Stayed at this hotel in November 2014. After long journey from England then discovering our suitcases were missing when we arrived (no fault of hotel of course!!) we were a bit disappointed.

The hotel is located in a unique and gorgeous location, but is at the same time very isolated from everything. The only way to connect to ao nang is by longtail boat (doesnt work when it rains) or through the monkey trail (seriously dangerous). When it comes to activities outside the hotel we thought the best way would be to... More

We stayed at Centara, Krabi, for a friend's wedding and had such a wonderful time. Transport to the resort was via a boat. You can then walk back over quite a steep hill (with stairs, and sometimes monkeys) to get back to the main street for a shop - or catch a boat back there. You can relax as much... More

Beautiful resort, friendly staff and a locale unlike anywhere else in the world, Centara Krabi hosted 15 members of our family - from Australia to Canada to Thailand - to a wonderful and warm 6 night stay the week before Songkran.

First timers to Thailand, we were so pleased we chose to come here instead of other more commercialised areas. The scenery is stunning and to be staying in part of a national park is a privilege. That privilege comes with a price that isn't just financial, you must understand that you are sharing your environment with nature and that nature... More
