Overview

Colonial-style beach retreat, home to Thailand's largest swimming pool and a seafront golf course

The Look

This 276-room low-rise resort fronts Thailand’s ridiculously picturesque Phang Nga Bay, which is dotted with camera-friendly craggy limestone islands. The sprawling retreat is made up of open-air pavilions with steeply pitched Thai roofs and French colonial interiors with dark wood panels, polished teak and vaulted ceilings. The grounds are thick with towering palm trees, and fragrant frangipani flowers add a tropical vibe.

Bed and Bath

The rooms are all colonial glamour — think polished floorboards, Regency lamps, carved timber beds and upholstered armchairs. The Old World look, executed in neutral tones, exudes a timeless charm. The elegance continues in the bathrooms, where translucent connecting windows help optimize the natural light. All rooms come with private balconies overlooking the ocean, garden or pool.

Beyond

The lake-size pool (said to be Thailand’s largest) has a swim-up bar. (A semiprivate wing of the hotel also features swim-up rooms.) Ristorante Venezia serves fancy Italian dishes and pizzas cooked in a traditional stone oven, or you can tuck into Thai and Indian fare at White Lotus. For those with a sweet tooth, Café Vienna serves pastries and homemade ice cream. The spa, located in a separate pavilion with a long central pool, offers treatments using L’Occitane products.

In the Area

Don’t skip the speedboat trip to unpopulated Koh Hong; you can kick back on its white sand beach, paddle in the turquoise waters among a stunning array of fish, or kayak around the island to nose into the knee-deep lagoon. The facilities are rudimentary, so bring a picnic. Longtail boats regularly shuttle tourists to the most photogenic islands between Krabi and Phuket. Ao Nang is 20 minutes away and offers shopping, haggling, drinking and dining, or visit nearby Wat Sai Thai, home to a monumental Buddha swathed in golden robes reclining at the base of a limestone cliff.

The Sofitel Krabi is a superb resort hotel located 30 ministries drive from Krabi town.
The service in the hotel is excellent as are the amenities.
The hotel is close to a beach. But there are better beaches in the area to enjoy
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel

Perfect property for family vacation, have everything you can ask for - one of the biggest and well maintained swimming pool, golf course, beach, several activities to keep kids and adults busy throughout the day and restaurants which serve quality food.
We had some issue at the time of checkin as it took long time, other than that the experience was good.
