If you like being stuck in one place this is the hotel for you. It is on an island secluded away from Krabi Town and the only way to get to Krabi is to take a Tuk Tuk through a Muslim village to a river and switch to a boat which takes you across to Krabi. It appeared to me that the village locals did not appreciate seeing Westerners being brought through their village daily. Every morning we would take the 20 min Tuk Tuk ride to the river and experience angry stares from the locals. If this wasn't enough, on our way back one night we had a local tell us he had a tuk tuk to give us a ride and tried to usher us into a small alleyway then suddenly saying he had drugs if we wanted to buy them. It was bad enough that we had to be back before 6pm but the fact that it was just not safe made the stay almost unbearable. Do yourself a favor and find another hotel.
If your looking for a good place to relax at the pool or just enjoy pure peace and quiet then you found your place. The hotel staff was very friendly and the food and drinks were great.
While in Bangkok dealing with medical issues at Thai International Med Center , I finished a week early THEN . . . Islanda popped up on my travel site with a pic of a beach side pool . I jumped on the offer & the pool is wonderful But there was a great bonus surprise , NO cars ! After too much time in Bangkok’s famous claustrophobic traffic , Islanda’s traffic jam is sweet . . . it is when 2 tuk-tuks meet on the road & they slow down more . Islanda could become the escape place for people needing a week away from traffic jams . Unfortunately way more people have traffic gridlock burn out than Islanda has rooms so it could happen that travelers will end up needing to book months in advance if the city people find out about Islanda . Important FYI : Getting there is Best by ordering Islanda's airport shuttle directly from hotel as they have the safest pier & best boat which transits from the Krabi Marina Lagoon to their own pier on Koh Klang . If one must come in by the public pier on the N W side , be prepared for makeshift pier made of scraps and slippery surfaces . Probably better to NOT have luggage or for elderly people unless they've been doing it for years . Do wear shoes with maximum traction .
