Krabi La Playa Resort
Travel Blogs from Ao Nang
Hey everyone staying in Krabi at the moment, travelled down from Phuket Airport after our nightmare visa run and two nights of camping. Flagged a local bus down from the motorway and was actually nicer than most private buses we've been on. Was so excited for our two night stay in a 5 star hotel which we won in competition thanks to Ste's lovely …
Vandaag is het dan eindelijk dat we aan onze strandvakantie beginnen... 8 dagen lekker chillen aan het strand!
We hebben met ons mama en onze pa op de luchthaven in BKK afgesproken... hup hup de vlieger op en een dike uurtje later stonden we in Krabi. Het had er de hele ochtend flink geregend, maar dat was weer achter de rug... We mogen …
Well, following too much speculation about travel in Thailand, we are here: oh yes
Take a look, we're sooooooo sorry you can't join us.
......and this is the rainy season, so they say! The wettest thing around here is the pool. Don't you just love it.
Amanda, It's cocktail night tonight …
... movie as well. I had been told by many that is was a must see in Ko Phi Phi but was resistant as well because of how touristy it is. I am so glad I went. The tour we chose included an afternoon and evening of touring around the islands. The first stop was cliff jumping. I climbed a rock and then jumped (reluctantly) from a height that felt so much taller than it was. My "When in Thailand" motto has got me to do so many things ...
... My roomie for the week is Dinae and we get to cuddle together in the same king size bed.....lucky her. We all went I go see the sunset on the East side of the beach with the other 40 day Thailand group. There wasn't much of a sunset since it was so cloudy. Raleigh is absolutely beautiful!! It's definitely not your cliche island and beached. The island is jungle with jutting rocks and monkeys just running around. You see the cutest baby monkeys ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Krabi La Playa Resort Ao Nang
Ich war im Oktober für 4 Nächte im La Playa und fand das Hotel bei der Lage ein super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Wir hatten ein deluxe Poolzimmer, ideal. Ein sehr gutes Hotel mit freundlichen Angestellten. Habe meinen Aufenthalt sehr genossen und würde gerne wiederkommen.
Loved it really great
stayed for three nights on a promotion only charged for two they up graded us to a pool room what luxury could swim off our balcony the room was a good size and everything worked shower was huge and plenty of water
Stayed in this hotel for 10 days as part of our honeymoon in January 2007. Overall very good value for the price we paid (65 usd a night inc. breakfast). It is quiet and tucked away behind the main strip, but only 2 minutes walk to the food market and the tourist area. The room was big, airy and bright, with nice furniture and ambience. The view we had from our balcony was also very nice, straight to the sea. There is also a nice fitness room near the pool which has some good machines and weight lifting equipment.
We chanced upon a 'stay 3 nights pay for 2' promotion for this hotel and decided to book a Superior room. When we arrived, we were delighted to find that we were allocated a pool access room that also has a private corner with jacuzzi outside the balcony. Boasting the nicest and biggest swimming pool in all of Ao Nang as claimed, the hotel was exactly as portrayed on its website. The room was spacious and comfortably appointed, and we enjoyed the variety of satellite TV channels available. Breakfast was at the restaurant by the pool and the buffet spread was rather scrumptious. There was even a coffee machine for guests. Front desk staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel's tour counter is a good place to get info and book day tours. Situated at the quiet end of Ao Nang, the hotel is just across the beach. Turn right and walk for 15-20mins and you'll hit Noppharat beach. It is approximately 10-15mins' walk to the main shopping stretch of Ao Nang, as well as to the area where longtail boats leave for Railey. Along the way you'll find many pushcart stalls selling desserts and snacks. And just outside the hotel, there is an outdoor dining area (only open at night), with several stalls serving cheap and delicious local fare. We had a great stay at Krabi La Playa and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting Krabi!
I stayed at la playa in october for 4 days and found the hotel very good value and good location, i was in the delux pool room which was ideal, overall a very good hotel with friendly staff i enjoyed my stay and would use this hotel again
Spent 5 nights there.......as all the reviews had mentioned, it was great!!!
Spent 2 nights there - nice large clean rooms. Main floor rooms open up directly into the pool - neat! Agree the buffet breakfast was mediocre - good food & bars along the beach. Kind of misleading - not located on the beach - but it is only a 5 minute walk. Had a lot of tiny ants in our room - not sure if due to the season or not, but room was very clean & comfortable. Reasonably priced.
After an easy 20 minute transfer from Krabi airport, we found this newly constructed hotel, peacefully situated on the edge of the family friendly Ao Nang resort. Rooms where all identical, clean and spacious. In-built wardrobes and furniture where modern, with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space (but very few clothes hangars!). Two 3/4 size beds with fresh white linen duvets and full A/C provided a comfortable nights sleep. The room was spacious enough to easily accommodate a fold up bed for children, that could remain in situ. A second would of needed folding down during the day. Bathrooms were again spacious, with large walk in showers. The balconies were all forward facing so all had views of the pool area (about 80%) or the small landscaped gardens. They where equipped with two chairs and table. The ground floor pool facing rooms had swim up balconies and some had tubs, albeit this concept had not really worked.
We stayed at the Karbi La Playa Resort for a week at the beginning of January. Overall, we had a very pleasant time. The place appeared to be quite new, all the rooms were in excellent condition, big and tastefully decorated. The pool was large, with lovely decking and stonework all around, and one could easily spend the day there doing nothing. If you wanted to leave the pool, the beach was 5 mins down the road, as were all the shops and boats to hire for island hopping. The worst aspect of the hotel was the breakfast - it was the ususal standard average fare that seemed to be at every hotel we stayed in Thailand. The level of service overall could also perhaps have been better. If you are looking for five star luxury, outstanding service and a never ending list of amenties and facilities, this is not the place for you. However, for the price we paid for this hotel, we thought it was good value - clean, relaxing, lovely rooms and good location.
