The ShellSea was brilliant, we loved every minute. The staff couldn’t do enough for you, from the moment we arrived to when we left. The room was immaculate and amazing! The free shuttle into Ao Nang was super handy, only taking about 15 minutes. I would recommend this hotel to anybody wanting a luxury/ relaxing stay.

Hotel's Favorite
Beach is what I want once I take a holiday. I decided to fly down to the South of Thailand, Krabi. Now there are sunny, sandy beach due to high season. I choosed the Shellsea hotel because of luxury boutique and the property is not too big, the important thing is closed the beach. The room is very clean, comfy bed and full of amenities you may need. The shower room is separate wet and dry area also provided two wash basins and mirrors. On the next day I am very much fun with Aqua aerobic which is a free resort acitivity and unfortunately did not join a Yoga due to I have to go out on that day. The hotel also offer a free transfer to Ao nang go and back. There is one bar & restaurant of hotel with seaview I love to sit and drink there because they provided live music during dinner and cocktail hour also available here in the evening. Overall I love here and difinately come back if Krabi was selected again for my next holiday.

We had an amazing time in ShellSea. The complex is in very good shape, the staff is extraordinarily kind and the most helpful I have ever seen. The breakfast is complete, you have everything you need from Asian to European taste. We do loved the adults only pool where we could enjoy the beautiful scenery without screaming kinds around. The hotel is a bit out of town but there are free shuttles and in 10 minutes you are in the middle of everything. We won’t hesitate to stay there again if we will be around.

I looked for a hotel off the most touristy area and selected The Shellsea based on the wonderful reviews. I travelled alone with my 12 year old daughter. First, let me conclude that we loved the hotel and everything about it. The rooms were spacious, clean and modern. All outside areas very well maintained and set in a beautiful location with it's own private beach. Superb to be able to borrow kayaks (and sups which we did not try). Staff was very very friendly and breakfast high quality and versatile. I had eggs off the eggstation with lots of fresh fruits every morning and my daughter enjoyed the bread and cheese selection. The free bus shuttle to Ao Nang was much appreciated and we used it on most days to go to the center for dinner. We used the family pool for hours every day and enjoyed it. The pool is spacious and water is clean. The gym was fairly small but not crowded so worked well. Now having said that, what could still be improved; as in most five stars hotels the food at the hotel restaurants is very expensive. As you can get a great, good quality meal really affordably almost anywhere in Thailand it is a shame that hotels price themselves out like this. As there are really no places nearby (except God Le which I really can not recommend) we had most lunches at the hotel but dinners outside even if we would have preferred to stay back. And even if the food at the pool bar was good, 12 euros for a salad is tough. Even in Europe. Also, it would have been great to have some Thai food on the pool bar menu as well, not only European. The room AC was tuned to 25 degrees which was still quite hot and when turned down was quite noisy. Most of the staff spoke english well but some had issues, would be great to ensure that front desk staff are fluent in english. Overall we loved out stay. If there would have been a couple decent local restaurants on walking distance and massage joint or two, it would have been perfect but nevertheless we loved it and wish to express our deepest gratitude to the staff for making our holiday memorable.

The Shellsea in Krabi is the ideal boutique hotel for a fantastically relaxing experience. It is beautifully set with its own extensive sandy beach just below its situation. The rooms are extensive and the staff exquisite in their non-assuming approach. You really feel that you are individuals as the sense of other guests present is minimal. We had eight days here after touring parts of Thailand. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough having visited many great venues around the world. I would certainly put it in my top three (out of very many).
