Hidden away in secluded Pai Plong Bay and a luxuriant national park, this beachfront resort is a tropical paradise. The resort features generously-sized rooms and private villas (72-399 sqm.) with the option of garden or ocean views, an outdoor Jacuzzi, or a plunge pool. Designed in modern Thai style, with high ceilings, wooden accents, stone features and soothing colours, the rooms and villas are calm oases. Accessible by boat only, the resort offers an abundance of opportunities to relax and explore: a spa, Thai, Japanese, and International restaurants, complimentary water sports (kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding – the first hour is free), 2 swimming pools, 2 kids clubs. The experts at the resort’s PADI dive centre provide everything that is needed for beginners, those with medium skills, and expert divers. Krabi International Airport is 40 minutes away from Nopparatthara pier which is approximately 15 minutes from the resort by boat.

After reading the fantastic reviews about this resort we booked the Centara for the last 5 days of our honeymoon, expecting a 5 star experience as we had in our previous resorts in Koh Samui and Bangkok, but we have been quite disappointed so far. Whilst our deluxe ocean facing

The hotel is situated in a bay and can only be reached by speedboat. This makes it feel like you're on a private island. Although it is very private and feels remote, it is just next to Ao Nang beach and during low tide you can actually walk there. So if you have the urge to

We purchased the credit deal they had. I don’t remember the ratio but it was well worth it. There were 4 of us and we all got spa services, ate at several of the restaurants and did happy hour every day so we used all the credits and we were able to split the initial cost onto 4 cards but all use it.

Hi michellestevens67. The free shuttle boat leaves the resort on the hour from 5am until 10pm. Return boats leave Noppharat Thara Pier on the half-hour from 7.30am until 24.30am. Bookings are needed, and can be made in the Library or the Club. Monkey Trail or walking around the headland at low tide are the alternate options...both are easy. Enjoy your time at Centara Krabi!

Hello again michellestevens67! Best guide is that all restaurants do a buffet at various times of the week (excluding Hagi...japanese). Cost is 950++....about AU $50. We found about that price also covered a-la-carte meals2 or 3 courses, with drinking water and a beer or 2 each. Here is a big tip....ask for LOCAL DRINKING water...costs about 20% of the Evian they promote! Safe and sealed, and tastes great.
