Krabi is undoubtedly one of the most visually striking regions of southern Thailand. It's home to a spectacular white-sand coastline whose lofty limestone karsts emerge from the aquamarine water to create a showstopping example of Thailand's world-famous scenery. Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas is situated in the tranquil bay directly next to Ao Nang, one of the area’s liveliest towns. Ao Nang plays host to great nightlife, shopping and plenty of restaurants to add to the beach-bound R&R that comes so naturally here.
Staying at Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas in Krabi puts you in a convenient position to explore this area whilst maintaining a high level of luxury too. As well as getting the chance to discover Ao Nang by longtail boat, you can catch a boat to Ton Sai, Krabi’s best-kept secret: a small, traditional village of modest huts hidden in a secluded jungle bay, while the blockbuster scenery of Phi Phi Island is reachable by boat too. Look out for the iconic beach made famous in the eponymous Hollywood movie.
For the adventurous guest keen to explore Ao Nang outside the hours of the boat-transfer timetable, an intrepid jungle pathway – the mighty ‘monkey trail’ – is available as an alternative route by foot. Be warned though: this steep, narrow pathway is not an official access point to the hotel, and should only be attempted by able-bodied guests. Back at the resort there's a bountiful range of facilities on offer to guests, including: large swimming pool complete with Jacuzzi, kids’ pool, kids club, teen zone, spa, fitness centre, dive centre, boat rentals & kayaking, wifi, tour desk and more.
Please note: Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas is a superb hideaway hotel, however its seclusion means access is only possible via a speedboat or long-tail boat transfer, including arrival on a floating jetty. This could therefore present a challenge to the less mobile guest, so please check with one of our knowledgeable consultants if you have concerns about this or require more information.
The Centara brand has long been building on an ethos of care and attention to the needs of guests. Now, as we adjust to the ‘new normal’ management and local staff have been working hard to double up on these efforts to meet, and even surpass, global expectations for both hygiene and safety. The Centara Complete Care programme has been developed to ensure the protection and wellbeing of both guests and employees, focusing on areas like social distancing, enhanced cleanliness, and increased hygiene protocols. Expect screens at reception, contactless options, mandatory PPE worn by staff, and santisation of sports and spa treatment rooms after each use. For more detail, please enquire.
Please note: Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi offers complimentary hourly boat transfers from 5am until 12.30am daily. There will no longer be a free 'after hours' transfer, and charges will apply.
