We recently stayed at the Centara for 6 nights. We are both avid travellers and holidaying quite a few times a year, ranging from guesthouses to five star resorts and we had a decent stay here in Krabi. The hotel claims to be five star but is more like a four star hotel but with a few upgrades and a...

I was frankly a bit concerned about the other reviews but the place is nothing short of stunning! The boat ride that people complain about is really quite nice and what a nice entrance to a property. Ao nang town is ok nothing more than a few hours so my advice skip the town. Nothing really there. The food is...

Unfortunately this hotel did not live up to expectations and I wouldn't say it was 5*. We were here over the Easter holidays so the hotel was busy which I expected but they just didn't seem to be able to cope.

There is a distinct WOW factor on arriving by boat at this resort ,think Jurassic Park ,but then when you find that the only way in and out is the boat shuttle ,always heavily booked in the evening(plus 200Bht taxi into town which is along way from the pier) or the Monkey trail (not for the faint hearted ,less able...

Thanks shopaholicWales for your review and creative headline. Great to read your comments "Our room was fabulous, with fantastic views" as well as "Beach superb,visually stunning" then sadly your review takes on pessimistic view on families and the resort. The reality is we do cater for couples and families, so you should expect more kids when you stay during key...
