Pros: Beautiful location, stunning pool, nice rooms, proximity to town Cons: boat ride to town was a hassle as it was not reliable. We were forced to take the Monkey Trail after sunset due to weather conditions on the sea (and I do mean forced), which was fine for me since I'm a fit 30 year old guy, but was... More

My family and I visit Krabi every year and we always choose to stay at the Centara Grand because of its private beach, luxurious service and rooms and we always choose to have the rooms with jacuzzi on the balcony. I recommend to come to south of Thailand around December through to May because rainy season is unpredictable and it... More

Firstly I feel guilty writing this review, however it is my honest opinion and honest comparison against other hotels I have stayed at. The hotel needs a revamp, the rooms look and feel grubby. The location is ideal for people who don't want to venture out and stay at the resort all day. The monkey trail needs looking at in... More

This is the best hotel in Krabi. I and my boyfriend travelled to Krabi and we decided to stay at this hotel because of the location. The hotel has to reach via a boat which is very exciting and their boats has a schedule between the hotel and a pier, I would recommend you to check the time and reserve... More

Visited for 2 weeks with teenagers 17 and 19 and elderly parents. All enjoyed the resort with the lazy river and close proximity to the beach. Visited August and the waves were pretty big every day and a number of days was not suitable for swimming. It's a nice walk along the beach to Karon one little stream to cross.... More

It was brilliant. There are loads good pools and you can book scuba diving lessons which are really fun. You can also do canoeing with two people. However sometimes monkeys come in your room or take things of your balcony. The beach is really nice and you can go into the sea.

I will get to the title later but we stayed here as the third leg of our Thailand trip earlier this year. A secluded resort reached by boat from Ao Nang, approximately a 10/15 min trip. The resort was accessible via land but not easy so the resort is mostly undisturbed escially so after sunset. Our room was great and... More
