“A beautiful place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

I would certainly recommend Krabi Thai Village resort, where we stayed along with our family, in April. It is conveniently placed, being only a short walk into Ao Nang. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. We arrived to a buffet dinner in the grounds,with live entertainment. Our rooms were serviced daily to a high standard & beautiful flowers decorated our beds each day. On returning to Krabi we would have no hesitation staying there again.

This is nice well appointed hotel, rooms are spacious and clean. The service in the bar was always slow and this would seem to be the reason why it was always empty. The hotel should look to address this problem.

A beautiful hotel, great pools, staff are friendly and the hotel was very clean. If staying here, a must is to visit the two hotels in the hillside behind - The Hilltop and the Leylei (not sure of spelling for that one). The views and food are excellent and free transport picks you up and brings you back to the hotel. The prices are also excellent. $20 buys a superb meal and drink.
One drawback with this hotel is the walk into town, about 10 minutes, there is an awful lot of litter dumped by the side of the road. With so many tourist dollars going into this place, something should be done to clean it up. Once in town, there is an abundant amount of restaurants and eating out is incredibly cheap.

Room Tip: As the hotel is set around the pool, I don't think a bad choice is possible.

Stayed 3 nights at the hotel. Great place with above average service. Tours and motobike rents can be done over the counter. Hotel room is cosy and nice. My only gripe is below average breakfast serving almost the same thing every morning.
The other thing is is quite a distance away from the beach and shopping area about 10-15 minutes walk

We stayed here in Feb 2013 for our honeymoon. On our first night we had a bit of a bad night, we had been traveling for god knows how long and when we got to the hotel we weren't impressed with our room. The bathroom was a little dirty and smelt odd but the real problem was the people above us who kept us awake until 5am slamming doors,partying etc. I was so upset that first thing I went to reception and asked to move rooms. We we're moved straight away no fuss and the new room by the pool was amazing!

After this we had a wonderful time there. I even had my birthday whilst we were there and they wrote happy birthday in flower petals on the bed and provided us with a slice of very yummy cake! The room was beautiful and kept very clean. The air con was a little noisy but didn't bother me.

The walk down you do have to go past a bit mountain of rubbish but you just get used to it and just don't look at it to be honest, it's Thailand and they just do things differently! The hotel is slightly out of the main strip but that's why we liked it. The walk down doesn't take long at all and with tuk tuks being so cheap its really not a bother.

Overall its a little old school Thailand but that's why we liked it. Everyone is lovely and works hard, you won't regret staying here!

I would stay here again, as I look out the office window at dark skies I can say I would love to go back!!

Room Tip: Rooms around the pool were the best ones.

This is my 3rd stay at the Krabi Thai Village and this time we went with my daughter and her fiance. My first stay was about 9 years ago and it is as lovely as ever. The hotel is situated about 10 minutes walk, or 2 minutes very reasonably priced tut-tut ride away - good investment for the way back due to the slight hill the hotel sits on. We didn't visit the secret beach although we heard good reports about the beach and the restaurant on the beach. The days just flew by relaxing by the pool and the 2 trips we did go on were very good. We did the Nosey Parker Elephant trip and loved it - the elephants do seem to be well cared for at this establishment. We also did the Phi Phi islands trip. This was VERY crowded - both on the speedboat going and at the various islands we visited. When we first went there a few years ago you could still get a 'desert island' feel but all the speedboats now seem to arrive at the same time making it utter chaos. It was nice to do again but I would like to see the trips organised a bit better so that not so many boats arrive simultaneously. Going back to the hotel, I can thoroughly recommend it. The pools were never crowded, the arrival in reception was lovely and the staff are very helpful. We had a top floor room, which gave us plenty of exercise as there are no lifts but it was worth it because the view over the pools was lovely in the evenings. Thanks Krabi Thai Village - we hope to see you again soon x

We arrived at Krabi Thai Village Resort on the 31st of March 2013. After a 27 hours of travelling, door to door, we were shown to our room, we paid extra for an executive. The room was on the ground floor at the far end of the hotel with NO view! We had requested a higher floor as the ground floor rooms people could walk past and look into the room so the curtains had to be kept shut at all times and we could not sit on the terrace due to people walking past! So, no privacy. We immediately asked to be moved and were told that another room would be available for us the following day. We moved at 10 am the following morning to a 3rd floor room (934) overlooking the pool bar and pools. We were very happy with this room.
Now, onto the hotel itself. As you are doing now, we read reports on trip advisor regarding the establishment. Take no notice of all the negative comments as most of them are untrue (for us anyway).
Some of the staff are very friendly but the pool staff not so much. We read that there would be no pool beds available due to them being saved early morning. We have been at the pool most days with plenty of beds available ALL through the day, at times only 6 people up on the top pool.
There is free wifi in the lobby bar which everybody goes down to use but the bar has NO atmosphere at all. There are two singers on every night and, to be honest I feel sorry for them as no one listens to them as people have their faces stuck in an I pad or phone! Bar prices are cheaper than where we stayed last year (Centara Grand Beach Resort) but still too expensive considering you have plenty of places to go just outside the hotel. Happy hour is between 6pm and 7pm and then again between 10pm and 11pm. Food is nice in the hotel but again you can eat out just as good and a lot cheaper.
I have to agree with many reports that the breakfast is limited but nice, especially the freshly made omelettes.
As for the gym well, there is one but none of the machines work! My husband runs every day at home on the tread mill and one of the reasons for choosing this hotel was for the use of the facility. He has to get up at 6 am in order to run on the beach before it gets too hot!
We went to the Hilltop Restaurant which is on the hill at the the back of the hotel and it was lovely. We had 2 starters, 2 mains, a few beers, glass of wine and 4 cocktails which came to just over 3,000 baht. A couple of nights later we went to the Lae Ley which is the one just a little lower down, we found this to be a lot better, with a better food choice and service was outstanding, prices a little cheaper which is always a bonus.
With being here last year we knew what was around and to be honest we have done far more this year than we did last as the hotel is a 10 minute walk from the main town but plenty to see when walking down. Yes, there is a a little waste ground just as you turn left out of the hotel but by no way will it spoil your holiday.
In summery. I would recommend this hotel depending on the room you get.

Places that we recommend.

The last cafe ( between 4pm & 5pm) monkeys playing on the beach nice to watch with a glass of wine, me with the wine not the monkeys!
Mr. Cocks street bar
Lae Ley restaurant.
Hilltop restaurant
No 18, on the beach for a massage
Black canyon coffee house for the best coffee and milk shakes (the best vanilla milk shake ever for 60 baht)
Long tail boat to Railey beach 400 baht return (but be careful, they will not bring you back till the boat has 8 people on it.) We waited nearly 2 hours and ended up paying more for him to bring us back!!!!! Lovely beach with lots of bars and cafes.

Date today 12th March 2013 and we are still here. Weather is very, very hot! Looking forward to Songkran tomorrow.

Hope this has been of some help.
