The hotel is perfect, but it is further from Krabi town and other beaches. if that is what you are looking for, go for it.
Spotlight of our trip to Thailand. Very nice hotel, beautiful pool, spacious. Very kind staff. If I go back to Thailand, I will make sure this hotel is at the top of my list of places to stay.
This hotel is a great resort. The room is very nice and comfortable and spacious, the pool is huge and lovely, the gym is good and there is even a tennis court. The food at the restaurants is top notch, and service is truly nice. The only bothersome thing is that each item or activity is at least 5 if not 6 times the price as anywhere else, to the point of ludicrous, limiting your desire to use their great facilities. As long as their charging $8 for toast doesn't get in the way of your ability to enjoy being there, its very nice. You can go there and just expect that they try and overcharge exhorbitantly and plan to not use all their facilities (pool and gym free though -- but only open from 7am to 7pm!). I really think they'd be a better resort if they only double or tripled the price of everything, and would probably please their guests more and get more out of us... but, overall, very nice. Further north is a bit more scenic, and we just rented a motorbike to scoot around and feel free of the overpriced shuttle that the resort offers. Note - the recommendation below for a friend would really be "depends" - if you can afford even more there are some gorgeous places further up the road, if you are trying to save there are nice cheaper places closer to Aonang...
I was here in Krabi for a wedding. This resort was a great combination of everything. The service was amazing. It was very personalized and helpful. The resort was beautiful. The pool is amazing and wraps around the entire hotel. The view from the pool is also breathtaking. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. My only issue with this resort is the location. It was about a 15 minute walk from any eateries, but I would definitely come back to this resort. We loved it. (and their breakfast buffet was delicious)
Great place to relax. Fab pool with a happy hour at the pool bar 5-6.
Active couple on holiday + Great service, great pool (largest in Krabi), very large and clean rooms. + Everything works well, even the AC. + Good gym, includes free weights, sauna, turkish bath. + Wide variety of restaurants; only ate at the Thai rest, was good. + Breakfast is very good, but pricey + Fantastic price (at least in 2009). - For people that want to be active outside the hotel (diving, boat tours, jungle tours), it is located a bit far from town; that applies to all other luxury resorts as well. - Stay away from the outside activity booth; the personnel doesn't know anything, and the offers are very limited. You are much better off by going to town, or 500m down the road to one of the tiny tour-agencies. - Easy access to the beach across the road, but beach is not as nice as near other hotels in the area. It is also not integrated into the hotel layout.
