... s worst singers. After a few terrible singers and a ultra camp dancer who was Thailand's answer to Louie Spence, we got the jist, it was a local talent show. Back at our hotel the seedy restaurant/bar downstairs was pumping loud music most of the night and despite being on the 5th floor it was still very loud. On top of that was the running around, talking and giggling coming from the corridors for a majority of the night, we suspect a but of red light action going on at this ...
On Monday 13 January 2014 we were headed out on a tour of some of the islands around the famed Koh Phi Phi. As it is peak season here for tourists we knew we wouldn't be alone in paradise but there were a lot more than I had expected! I think this was made worse because of the fact that the 50 odd tour boats all do the same route at the same time. So we bordered our speed boat and the first stop was Bamboo Island where we got ...
... jak na śląskim odpuście, sprzedawcy nawzajem się przekrzykują w nadziei złowienia klienta. Robimy szybkie rozpoznanie, chłopaki pojawiają się już z wszystkimi plecakami, więc na ostatnią chwilę dokonujemy zakupu i w szalonym pędzie biegniemy do minibusa – mamy 35 minut, żeby dotrzeć do centrum na dworzec autokarowy. Kierowca minibusa długo przygląda się kartce z adresem, ...
It would be hugely remiss not to dedicate a few lines to the grandly named Orange City Mansion Hotel which was our chosen initial stop at Krabi. In fact the first feature to mention about the place is that it is not actually in Krabi at all. Krabi sits on a riverbank close to its estuary and the famous beaches and islands are all relatively nearby.
Orange City Mansions is in the edge of Ao Nang and is some 7 or 8 miles away. Ao Nang has two superb beaches the ...
... to the hostel to chill out once more, I almost got the impression that Krabi was going to be the lull before the storm of the full moon party! A bit later on Mash and I decided to go for a traditional Thai massage at a nearby massage parlour. I was a bit apprehensive as I had been told by numerous people that at a Thai massage is more of a test of pain than a nice relaxing experience. We were given a warm welcome by an attractive, petit Thai girl. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Krabi Sands Resort
Wir waren im Krabi Sands für die letzte Woche unserer Flitterwochen und nach einer hektischen Woche in Bangkok und Trekking in Chiang Mai war es eine nette Abwechslung, sich eine Woche nur zu entspannen.
We stayed at the Krabi Sands for the final week of our honeymoon, after a hectic week in Bangkok and trekking in Chiang Mai it was a lovely change to have a completely relaxing week.
War gerade für eine Woche im Krabi Sands Resort und hatte total schlechtes Wetter. Die Angestellten, die Lage und das Hotel haben das aber wieder wettgemacht. Wann auch immer wir im Restaurant ankamen, wurden wir durch ein freundliches Lächeln und ein Sawasdee begrüßt, nichts hat ihnen zu viele Umstände bereitet. Ich bin oft in Thailand und habe schon überall im Land gewohnt. Bis heute kann aber nichts mit dem Krabi Sands Resort mithalten, besonders was die Freundlichkeit betrifft. Sogar meine thailändische Verlobte war beeindruckt. Wenn erst mal alle Bauarbeiten, die etwas weiter die Straße hinauf stattfinden, beendet sind, wird dieses der angesagteste Ort überhaupt sein. Ich werde es all meinen Freunden empfehlen und bestimmt auch unsere Flitterwochen hier verbringen. Vielen Dank an alle Angestellten.
Wir haben unsere Flitterwochen im Krabi Sands Resort verbracht und hatten eine wunderbare Zeit. Was uns am besten gefallen hat, war die Abgeschiedenheit. Es sieht fantastisch aus. Das Zimmer war gut klimatisiert, der Pool ist sehr groß und der Service erstklassig. Alles, was wir tun mussten, war unsere Wünsche auszusprechen und alles wurde erledigt. Wir sind mit einem Longtailboot nach Hong Island gefahren und haben einige, einsame Inseln besucht. Wenn wir nach Ao Nang mussten, haben wir uns einfach ein Mofa ausgeliehen. Das ist zwar 20 Minuten entfernt, ist aber ein schöner Weg. Das Essen im Beach House Restaurant gegenüber ist sehr gut. Die frischen thailändischen Gerichte haben uns sehr gut geschmeckt. Etwas die Straße hinunter findet man noch viele andere Läden, Bars und Restaurants. Ein super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Würden liebend gerne einmal wiederkommen.
We spent our honeymoon in the Krabi Sands Resort and had a beautiful time. We liked the fact that it was away from the crowds. The resort looks fantastisc. The room was beautiful and airconditioned. The pool is very big. The service is excellent. All we had to do was say what we wanted to do that day and everything was taken care off. We took the longtail boat to Hong Island and visited some other deserted Islands. When we wanted to go to Ao Nang we rented a motorbike. Yes it is 20 min. away, but it's a lovely trip.
Krabi Sands is not for everyone - it is well out of the way, about a 20 minute ride from Ao Nang, and not on the beach - but it was perfect for our large family group. The resort is on the small side, but has all of the quality and amenities of a larger resort. To start with, the grounds were beautifully landscaped and impeccable, as were all of the details of construction. The individual bungalows were well spaced, had more than adequate air conditioning and lots of hot water, as well as a refrigerator, and were squeaky clean. We paid about $116 per night, which included breakfast, in the middle of high season.
Great stay and great staff
Just had a week at Krabi Sands Resort and although the weather was terrible, the staff and the setting of the hotel more than made up for that. Every visit to the restaurant we took, (and it was many) was greeted with a genuine Smile and Sawasdee and nothing was to much trouble, i go to Thailand many times during the course of the year and have stayed all over the country, but to date nothing has compared to the Krabi Sands Resort for friendliness, even my Thai Fiance was very impressed. Once All the building work which is going on a few hundreds yards up the road is finished, this will become one a must place to visit, i know io will be recomending this Resort to all my friends and will definately be having my honeymoon there.
Thanks to all the staff.
Krabi Sands is new and well maintained. My family of 4 (with adult daughters) stayed there for 4 nights. Great pool area and overall a very nice facility. Location is well away from touristy areas. If you like to be in the middle of the action don't stay here! However, it is easy to arrange a taxi one way or for the day and the rates are quite moderate.
We spent three nights at the Krabi Sands in February of 2004. It was a brand new resort then and absolutely stunning. It was small, intimate, and the service by the owners and wait staff was incredible. This resort does not advertise with major booking services. Check them out at ----. Don't come here for the beach - there isn't any to speak of. Come for the beautiful rooms, terrific pool area, great service, and LOW prices. Don't let that fool you. You get more than your money's worth here. They will be happy to book any tours and arrange any transportation you need. Wonderful massages in a sala by the pool can also be arranged. It is new and fresh and not damaged at all by the tsunami. Prices range from $45 to $90 (includes full American breakfast) depending on season. Check out the website, and believe me it is better than it looks on the web (and it looks pretty darn good on the web!) The owner is a transplant from England married to a charming Thai lady. Believe me, if you are not into mega resorts, this is THE place to stay. Food is terrific in the restaurant, incidentally. Feel free to contact me. This place is a real sleeper! Try it while the prices are low.
