This resort was by far my favourite in Ao Nang and perfect if you're looking to just take it easy and relax. The resort is only accessible by boat (speed boat which is free or long tail which costs $), which means you don't have the luxury of walking into ao nang without pre planning. However if you don't mind... More

Pros. Beautiful and worthy of skipping tours to stay at this hotel! If you're doing day trips stay at a cheap hotel and waste your days touring. This hotel had great service lots of free stuff to do on the beach and the pools were refreshing and a good change from having sea water in your mouth. The food was... More

It is worth the slight hassle of the speedboat trip to get here - no doubt about it and once you have dumped your luggage, make sure that you go back to Ao Nang to enjoy the village restaurants and facilities. The hotel is really a series of linked lodges - very well appointed and with all the amenities you... More

The rooms are big and clean, but old. They definitely need a renovation, as the hotel. A few paint jobs would change a lot. Unfortunately there is a lot of garbage in the lovely resort. The food is good but expensive for thai standard. 5 different restaurants ***** The transfer from the Aonang pier was not announced an free(surprised). The... More

As we arrived at Krabi airport there was a man holding a Centara sign. He gave us some luggage tags and took us outside to our driver. The driver took us to the pier which took roughly 40 mins. He charged us 700Baht which was the most expensive taxi we had paid for since we had been in Thailand. Think... More

I can't speak highly enough of this hotel, and will 100% be returning. I was slightly sceptical after reading the reviews and it is important to note that you can only get in and out of the hotel via boat (and the monkey trail) but it's really not the problem that many described it as. Firstly, every day we simply... More

We visited this place last year.. Speciality of this hotel is the location. Located in tranquil krabi island where the only mode of transport is speed boat. You have to cross a floating bridge to enter the resort. The hospitality is spell bounding. One can also arrange a special beach dinner. Very good place for honeymooners. Spectacular view of a...

We stayed at the Centara after a busy week in Bangkok & Vietnam. This resort is ideal for those looking to relax. The arrival is by boat only, which is fine unless the sea is a little rough as you need to walk along a 50 metre pontoon to get to the hotel. The location is secluded and quiet, which... More
