“Beyond Imagination! ”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Heya travellers!

Namaste....!

This is my first attempt to pen down the reviews about the RESORT which I am really excited about. That's Beyond Resort, Krabi. I would rather make it very simple so that its easy to comprehend & you could click right away to make an online booking!

My rating structure & reasoning :

5 Stars : Only if it is exceptionally great on all parameters which includes;

A) Location - Uniqueness, ease of access to airport, beach, nearby restaurant, cafes, spa, local shows, shopping & nightlife. ( Nearby fun & facilities )

B) Service - Checkin-out, housekeeping, Reception, day tour service, serving staff at restaurant & Bar, Communication & language, room Service.

C) Cleaniness & Hygiene - Infrastructure, Qualities of Rooms & inhouse amenities.

D) Amenities - Beyond resort provided Outdoor Villas, ocean facing rooms , Pickup service to rooms, jacuzzi & infinity pool, beach spa & inhouse spa service, open beach lounge & bars, sun beds by the pool, buffet breakfast restaurant & on selected days dine & wine karaoke live barbecue food night ) Indeed, a WOW!!

E) What's extra for Us/ is it value for money - This is the most critical factor in deciding if our so called planned/unplanned/last minute trip is gonna be " the " trip. Simply to make sure its WORTH it.

( Beyond Room rates are best-priced, mesmerising breathtaking view, private beach, infinity pool, open spa & happy hours btwn 4.30- 6.30pm @ beach bar, multi-culture, decent crowd makes it a very classy & personal experience with nature's touch ;-)

##########$$$$$.5##############

So, Beyond Krabi resort takes 4/5 stars wherein it loses out 0.5 star deduction for ease of access to outside facilities & 40-45mins car drive from Ao nang beach, not to miss if it's Krabi!! But at the same make sure it will comfort you beyond any extent if relaxation & inhouse fun is what you looking for...!!

0.5 star deduction on the basis of language & communication, arrangement of local trips around but that can be easily taken care by any local tour operators available across the stretch. Mainly at the Ao Nang beach stretch.

Beyond should definitely be a part of your top 3 shortlisted resort if in and around Krabi. And it's a truly affordable 4 star with value for money feature. I would suggest, dont even think..Go for it!!

Recommended things to do :
#1 phi phi island trip from aao nang - 1100 - 1400 baht ( Act smart & tell them you are being offered 1100 baht for a speed boat ride )

#2 Emerald pool : dark forest pool experience, I couldn't personally go but looks dammn exciting!! Service available at beyond too. But look out outside as well...!!

Cheers & have a fun loving and exciting trip as always..!! Will try an upload few pictures from beyond soon...

sayonara!!

Dear Sir,

Many thanks for having taken the time to post a review on Tripadvisor.

Thank you for all your comments and recommendation. It takes about 15 minutes to drive to Ao Nang. However, if you do not know the road that local drivers take it may take you 30 minutes or more.

We clearly advertise the resort being 15 minutes away from Ao Nang and this is exactly why most of our guests choose our resort; to be away from crowds and to enjoy a serene beach in a quiet and natural environment. It is a bit harsh not to give the resort an “excellent” score despite calling it “Beyond Imagination”.

Thank you again for having taken the time to share your feedback with us. We will be delighted to hear from you again and to welcome you back to Beyond Resort in the future.

Kind regards,
Claude & the Team

After travelling around Asia we were looking forward to a relaxing break in Krabi. We were also on our honeymoon and had informed the hotel before we arrived. A little disappointed that this was not acknowledged in any way by the hotel. Just a congratulations would have been something! Whilst on our travels each of the other hotels we had stayed at had at least offered their congratulations, some had upgraded us, others had decorated the beds, supplied a cake and some even wine.

We had booked a cottage room which was nice. It was quite a walk but sometimes the staff did offer us a lift which was appreciated.

The beach was by far the best we had seen, and the sea was really safe to swim in and had very clear warm water. The pool was just as nice.

The service of the staff could be improved, mainly the bar and restaurant staff. We could be the only ones in the bar and a group of staff would rather stand together and chat or look at their phones rather than come and serve us. We found ourselves approaching them rather than the other way round. We asked 3 times for an iron to be brought to our room, eventually we contacted Oliver one of the managers (who was great and always went out of his way to help).

During our stay the hotel ran out of Singapore beer, which we couldn't believe, the evening before we left they could only offer Heineken, and the next day at lunch it was the same.

The food was generally good but generally served luke warm. There was plenty of choice but like all the other reviewers we loved the restaurant across the road called Bai Tong.

Found it a little surprising that the hotel hadn't yet put up any Christmas decorations, as all the other hotels we had stayed at had. Would of been lovely to have had Christmas music or at least some Thai, rather than the heavy clubbing music that was always playing in the bar.

Dear Sir,

Thank you very much for having taken the time to write a review.

We are glad to see that in general you enjoyed to stay and we are sorry to see that you that there were a number of issues.

We normally do offer some amenities to Honeymoon guests. I am sorry to read that we missed out on yours and I am checking the reservations correspondence to see what happened to avoid this from happening again.

I noted the feedback about the service in the Food & Beverage department. Please be assured that we are working hard to have better and more consistent supervision is in place at all times. I am sorry for delay of the iron to your room. The staff should have explained and apologized for the lengthy delivery.

Beer sales over the weekend you were here were exceptionally strong and we did indeed run out of stock of two out of three local beers on Sunday night. The stock should have been replenished the next morning but it was not done until the afternoon. Thank you for having brought it up and I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Since Christmas is not part of the Thai calendar or culture, we will only have some rather understated interpretation of Christmas decoration for a short period of time. I am sorry if this is not to your liking.

We hope to have the chance to welcome you again in 2014 so we can prove that we continue to improve the service we offer.

Kind regards,
Claude & The Team

Nice hotel, rooms and service from staff but a little isolated compared to Ao Nang.
Great for a quiet getaway but limited in terms of shopping and food.
Good amenities and facilities like pool and gym.
Nice, clean and long stretch of beach with amazing views.
Kids will love the crab colonies on islets near the beach.
Food and restaurant options limited so found ourselves wandering outside hotel in search of meals.
But downside is that nice restaurants outside are about 15 minute walk away from hotel, and a walk along the main road can be quite dangerous and unpleasant as huge and noisy gypsum laden lorries pass through that stretch frequently on their way to or from the mine.
Another option is to walk through the beach and through Sheraton Krabi to get to nice restaurants either in Sheraton or in Klong Muang Plaza and along main road, but wouldn't recommend walking through the beach at night as the tide can rise quite quickly.
Easy access to taxis and tuk-tuks outside the hotel if you need to get to Krabi town or Ao Nang.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for sea view rooms or villas, otherwise you may end up with one that is far away from...

Dear Sir,

Many thanks for having taken the time to post a review on Tripadvisor.

Thank you for your comment about the Food & Beverage options on the resort and surroundings. For dinner, our @ Beach Bar & Restaurant offers a Thai and a Western a la carte menu. We also offer set menus as well as very attractively priced seafood towers. Three times a week we feature a different themed buffet dinner with live music. The resort is indeed about 10 to 15 minutes away from Ao Nang which makes it easily accessible for a bit more action and at the same time it keeps our beach rather deserted and serene.

Thank you again for having taken the time to share your feedback with us. We will be delighted to hear from you again and to welcome you back to Beyond Resort in the future.

This is the 2nd time at this resort within the same year (which indicates how much we enjoyed the first stay). Located nearer the end of Kluong Muong beach gives a little more privacy and quietness if you are not looking for a packed resort. Even though this time it was the monsoon season (drizzling all the time), I enjoyed the serenity and sea view from the balcony. Staff knowledge of English has also improved from our previous stay, and polite as always. The Friday seafood bbq dinner was also of good value and quality.

Just returned from 12 nights in this resort. It was a nice resort with lovely views and a great beach. When we arrived we were shown to our cottage room which was very dark and compacted. We weren't overly happy with this room so we asked if we could pay for an upgrade. Unfortunately there were no other rooms available until a few days later. We moved cottage rooms which appeared to be a little brighter and bigger. Eventually we moved to a villa room which was 100% better, so big and spacious. Room up grade was complimentary which we were grateful of as we were so disappointed with the cottage room. Oliver the manager was brilliant but other staff appeared slightly confused at times and didn't appear to know what they were doing. They have a lot of staff around the pool bar but don't appear that eager to serve you so don't be surprised if you wait a little. On the whole the hotel was nice and the setting was peaceful. Apart from the rain we had for 3 days solid we had a very enjoyable holiday.

We stayed here for 10 nights initially in a cottage room but asked for an upgrade and were very delighted with the villa. The hotel staff were warm, friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were of a high standard. The location was idyllic with spectacular views and the beech and pool were nice and quiet, very relaxing. We ate at the Bail Tong restaurant which is just outside the hotel gates, across the road, to the right. Its run by Mr Kanit and his wife, the food is extremely delicious and I would highly recommend that you pay them a visit; it’s clean, economical and very, very tasty!!!

Room Tip: Avoid the cottage rooms if you want a 4 star holiday.
