We spent 2 nights at Beyond Resort on our way back from bangkok. 2 Adults booked into a cottage which the staff generously upgraded to a villa (closer to the reception) when they noticed at check-in that my wife was pregannat (they did not want her to walk much - how thoughtful). The staff truly live up to the resort's name and go way beyond to make the guests feel at home, large genuine smiles greeting you, sincerely trying to understand your holiday mood and suggest appropriate activities to do... their english needs to improve but was much better than our thai ... Oliver, Assistant Manager FOH was often on hand, though & his English is very good indeed. Oliver particularly deserves special mention in his genuine-ness in helping us plan our activities and advising us on the hotspots in town. We had even left behind our passport and Oliver and his team sent it to us by international courier (w/o any charge). We dont know how many resort would do that

This place is about 45 mins from the Krabi airport on a less populated part of Krabi. The hotel is actually located on the beach, and as the reception is on the 5. Floor – you just have the most amazing view as you walk into the lobby. Not to mention the large infinity pool with its multiple jacuzzis. They have a cordoned area on the beach to swim in and the water in the mornings comes to about waist high even 100 mtrs into the sea. Heavenly. Easy to reach other places like Ao Nang, Railley beach, Hong Island, James Bond island etc. Resort also helps with a daily shuttle to the Ao Nang beach. Just outside the hotel on the main road are multiple 7/11 convenience shops who sell cigarettes and ice, beer, wine and food items. Even bikes on hire. Sheratons' restaurants are next door and couple of others on the way to Ao Nang - take the daily shuttle to go to Seafood Street on Ao Nang for some of the best soups and food we have had

The rooms were spotlessly clean - no cockroaches, lizards or ants... hats off to the housekeeping staff ... the breakfast buffet is grand (and is on from 6:30 am till 10:30 am) and can be eaten poolside with a brialliant ocean view ... both lunch and dinner are themed per day of the week so u dont get bored ... we had a live fire-eating performance with buffet steak dinner on the sunday ...

We read some of the reviews here and were intially scared at making this choice based purely on the image of the pool and beach. But our response to some of the reviews

1. These is decent waiter service at pool side, the cocktails are served chilled and they serve at your lounger
2. Not a single mosquito bite & no flies/insects by pool or in your room.
3. Toiletries were alright here and though as a guy i can comment much, the wife was pretty happy with the shampoo, soap, conditioner
4. We had no problems of communication with any of the bar/restaurant staff. They tried to understand our order, and when confused called up front office to clarify before finalising the order, but always with a genuine interest and smile and never goofed up on the order

Are we planning to go back - next time around we might just skip Bangkok but we're definitely returning to this place

Room Tip: Villas are closer to the beach and reception, larger and have more privacy than the rooms First floor villas have abetter ventilation

We stayed here and celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and had the most amazing time. The views were out of this world and we were lucky enough to see them on a daily basis from our deluxe sea view room (2052). The hotel was lovely and clean, modern and stylish, the breakfast was great with large varieties to suit all tastes. we would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes peace and quiet. We were made to feel very welcome and would like to thank Oliver (management team) and Coco (Bar Waiter) for being very helpful and making it a very pleasant stay. Also, Claude the manager for making our anniversary one to remember. We shall return to this amazing place in the hopefully not so distant future. Mr and Mrs Smith.

We spent 5 nights at Beyond Resort Krabi early april 2013. 2 adults and a 12 year old child in a Sea View Deluxe Room on the 2. Floor.
Entering the reception, the view just takes your breath away! The hotel is actually located on the beach, and as the reception is on the 5. Floor – you just have the most amazing view.
Warm traditional thai welcomes, with fresh fruit, towels and water.
Ok English level by the welcoming staff, and by all other staff we meet during our stay. Staff is very friendly!
The hotel is very stylish – and quite interesting to experience, but not so “cosy” as we are used to.
But excellent room, exceptional pool area with direct beach access, super breakfast buffet where you can eat outside, free pooltowels, free wifi in public area, and – no people on the beach! Beyond is located 20 min from Ao Nang only, there is a shuttle bus in the evening if you miss the action, but you can also go out in the area, where you just opposite the hotel entrance have a very cheap and good restaurant “Baantai”, or turn right towards Sheraton, where there a several restaurants, we ate a couple of times at the “Terazze”, there is a cheap 7-11, ATM, Tuk Tuk service, massage ect.
Join the “Happy Hour” and watch the sea and sunset – just amazing.
We find the restaurant prices a bit higher than normal for similar hotels, but then we just decided to use the local restaurants.
For 400 bath you can get wifi access in your room for the entire stay, but only for 2 devices. So you have to be quicker than your family login on, as you cannot change devices after you have logged on.
So definitely a Hotel we would like to go back to!

Room Tip: Choose a room with sea view!

just got back from an 11 night stay. this hotel whilst expensive for food is located in a great part of the south of Thailand. Easy to reach other places like Ao Nang, Hong Island, James Bond island etc. Staff are friendly and will talk to you if you may the first move. Whlst English is not their firt lanuage they all try and are very polite, accomodating and sometimes funny. We loved happy hour on the beach bar sitting in one of the sofas watching the sun go down. Our room was one of the beach side cottages, more like a rounded turretted room with a balcolny and seperate wash/toilet area. Despite having 2 cockroaches in the room it was clean, the bed comfortable and the fridge worked. Air con only works when the key card is inserted into the door space but otherwise no issues. Just outside the hotel on the main road are numerous shops. 7/11 convenience shops who sell cigarettes and ice, beer, wine and food items. Local massages on the beach for around 300 baht and superb seafood on offer. A little further down the hill is an english speaing bar called "Paddys" run by Peter with a pool table a roast chicken dinner on a Sunday !. Food is reasonable and trips can also be booked either through the hotel or at one of the kiosks. Barter if you can to get the best. The hotel also offers a bus trip most days into Ao Nang from 530pm go to Seafood Street for some of the best soups and food I have tasted. A lovely country and lovely people. Thanks for a great time

Room Tip: ask the chef at brekfast to make your fried, scrambled or omlette so its hot

In a nutshell, I'd say ignore the negative reviews & look forward to an idyllic stay at Beyond Resort.
I stayed for 3 nights mid March in a deluxe sea view room. After 2 weeks of sight-seeing, it was the perfect location for a peaceful & luxurious stay.
The hotel style & architecture were much nicer than eg the Sheraton (& definitely on a totally different scale to the Ao-Nang hotels). The virtually deserted beach & views couldn't be bettered, especially sunsets, & from my 3rd floor room, I could even have a shower with sea view (glass panels to the shower). Always plenty of sunbeds with parasols at all times of day. All areas immaculate & all aspects of the pool excellent. No faults with food at breakfast or evening. Super in evening to eat by beach/sea, then have coffee on sofa even closer to sea.
In terms of some negative comments previously written:
1. There IS waiter service at the pool - waiters constantly walking to take orders & if you order at the bar, they always bring to your lounger.
2. Beach towels can be changed every day (accept this could be improved. They change beach towels if left in your room, but obviously beach towels likely to be on loungers then. I asked at reception in the evening, then room service brouhgt clean ones to room virtually immediately).
3. Toiletries in room - body/hair wash; conditioner; body lotion all with really nice fragrance. Also soap.
4. For me the pillows were the most comfortable experienced in my 3 week stay! Pillows are really important to me, such that I even take one of my own on holiday, but I never even used it here!
5. Not a single mosquito bite & no flies/insects by pool.
6. Breakfast not at all a canteen - simply buffet service. I prefer to get my own coffee anyway, so it's hot when I want to drink it. Choice of food excellent.
My only reservations really are the female reception staff don't have the level of English you'd expect. Oliver, Assistant Manager FOH was often on hand, though & his English is very good indeed. I had no problems of communication with any of the bar/restaurant staff.
Also, possibly, Ao-Nang is a little distant. Definitely worth going in the evening. I was lucky as had a relation with car to take me. Sea at Ao-Nang disappointing though (not too clean - maybe because of motor boats) & all 4 star hotels I saw there not a patch on Beyond Resort.
I stay in 4 or 5 star hotels & this was definitely one of my favourites - if not the best!

Room Tip: Deluxe sea view room, 3rd or 4th floor.

Dear Sir,

Many thanks for your recent stay with and for having taken the time to post a review.

Thank you also for all your kind comments and for having updated other readers on the improvements we have made on issues mentioned in previous negative reviews. It’s great to see that progress is noticeable and that the hard work of the team is paying off.

I have noted your comment on the English level of the reception staff. We are intensifying the English classes and we will also make sure that there is always at least one staff with a very good level of English at the reception. The English level of the staff is unfortunately an issue for many resorts in this area but we are making progress in this area as well.

We are delighted that you did enjoy your stay. Thank you again for your review. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to Beyond Resort Krabi in the future.


Kind regards,
Claude & the Beyond Resort Krabi Team
