Krabi La Playa Resort

At the Krabi La Playa Resort, two pretty pools sit in the two-acre gardens, and the golden sands of Ao Nang Beach are a short stroll away.

In the manicured hotel gardens lofty palm trees sway above the flowering plants.

Inside, everything is smart and modern in neutral and pastel shades that make everything feel fresh.

Of the two pools, one’s a turquoise collection of interlinked smaller pools, and the other’s an emerald-coloured spa pool edged by daybeds.

You can pick up snacks at the poolside bar until the main buffet restaurant opens at mealtimes. Enjoy cooked and continental breakfasts, and, come dinner, dine on your favourite Asian and international dishes.

Overview of Ao Nang

In Ao Nang, the beaches are so inviting that Leonardo DiCaprio shot the film The Beach here. Even so, they’re far prettier in the flesh than they are at the cinema – they have to be seen to be believed. On dry land, Krabi’s limestone rocks tower above the resort.

But on a holiday to Krabi, there’s much more to explore than just the beach. In fact, just off the shore, you’ll find thousands of islands to explore.

In Ao Nang, lazy days meet beautiful views. It’s a destination that will truly capture your heart.

Things to do in Ao Nang

The Krabi La Playa Resort is only five minutes’ walk from the centre of Ao Nang. In this bustling town, the main street is packed with bars and restaurants. Whether you’re looking to sample some traditional Thai cuisine or just soak up the atmosphere with a beer, this is the place to be.

Down by the front, a ribbon of sand stretches for over a kilometre, with blissful pockets of seclusion. And on the water’s edge, you can join a scuba diving adventure. Ao Nang has a reputation as being one of the best water sports destinations in Thailand, so you’re sure to find an activity that suits you.

When you stay at the Krabi La Playa Resort in Ao Nang, the best of Thailand is within walking distance. Whether you’d like to laze on the beach, explore cultural hot spots or sample some fine Asian cuisine, it’s all here.

Resort Summary

Because of its surroundings and the plethora of fishing boats you’ll spot around the coast, it’ll come as no surprise that the food within Krabi is heavily seafood-based. There’s seafood in curries and seafood in noodle dishes, which can be enjoyed within a number of fine dining atmospheres.

But due to Krabi’s sheer size, you’re going to come across a huge spectrum of cuisines, with a number of European and Asian influences. You’ll find everything from Italian to steakhouses, and trendy cafes to Chinese and Japanese food in traditional Thai garden settings.
