The tropical province is located in southern Thailand, 800km south of Bangkok. It’s located between Phang Nga and Trang and is home to over 150 islands, most with with the sunscreen-white sand and turquoise waters you’d expect of a place known as Thailand’s beach capital. Many Krabi hotels are just metres from picture-perfect stretches of sand, making ideal bases for days spent in the sun.
Which Krabi hotel you choose depends on which area you’d like to stay in and who you’re travelling with. For a family-friendly escape, opt for hotels and resorts in Ao Nang – it’s the main town, so has a multitude of restaurants and shops, as well as access to more secluded offshore islands.
If it’s pure privacy you’re after, Phai Plong Cove, Klong Muang and Tub Kaek are all home to secluded Krabi hotels that will take you to relaxation station in seconds.
Nature lovers will want to be nearby Phra Nang Beach – famous caves are found just offshore – while tropical-minded travellers won’t mind the journey to Railay, an isthmus that’s only accessible by boat. It’s home to an array of spectacular Krabi hotels, as well as activities such as sea kayaking, diving, snorkelling, hiking and rock climbing.
