    Sheraton Krabi Resort

    by

    Sheraton Krabi Resort is located at Klong Muang Beach which is about a 15 minute drive from Ao Nang. We drove here from Phuket and arrived about 3 hours before check in which was not a problem and we were also upgraded from a deluxe room to a Deluxe Sea facing room.

    This was our first experience in a Sheraton hotel so we had very high expectations.

    Our room was very comfortable, the King size bed was one of the best we have slept in over all our visits to Thailand and the room also had a DVD player. Actually the only disappointing things were the meager fruit platter delivered to the room, a few bananas, not what I would expect from a 5 star resort and having to pay such ridiculous prices for the internet.

    We live in Thailand for half the year, most hotels no matter what price or standard now have free wifi in all their rooms! There is also no turndown service and absolutely no service around the main pool unless you go to the back of the pool bar and ask for a menu or drink etc etc.

    The noise from adjoining rooms was shocking, we could hear a child running around and from the sounds of it opening and closing/slamming the sliding bathroom door, a rubber seal might help with the noise from these doors. There was also a lot of noise from the main door into the rooms being slammed every time some came in or out. I am sure this could be fixed with seals as it went on for many hours.

    So these are all very minor things that could be easily fixed.

    The grounds, gardens and pools are just beautiful and very well maintained. We also had room service a few times and it was quite nice and reasonably priced such as chicken satays 280baht and Khao Phad Phak for 210baht which was delicious.

    Mini bar prices were quite good; we expected them to be very expensive so were pleasantly surprised when we saw the prices. Staff were excellent and very helpful and friendly. Breakfast in Mangosteen’s restaurant was fantastic, so many choices and fresh quality food.

    There is a hotel shuttle bus that goes into Krabi town for 200baht per person each way and to Ao Nang for 200baht per person return. Next door to the hotel is a family mart and there are also a few local restaurants in walking distance.

    Would we stay here again, no it is not a true 5 star hotel so in our opinion there are far better value boutique hotels that look and feel five star!

    Quiet and out of town!

    by

    While this hotel has some lovely staff and nice facilities, it is about 15 minutes from Ao Nang beach and all the shops etc. There are a few local stores nearby and some nice local restaurants right across the road.

    Unique Quality: A great new swimming pool ! Ask for 'Ay' at watersports, he is really great value!

    GREAT SERVICE

    by

    We stayed at this hotel for 3 days on March, we loved it ! the service is fantastic! it is approx.12 km form Aonang

    Unique Quality: the pool is great & the beach front is private, there is a cheap restaurant also on the seaside near the hotel.

    Directions: if you are looking for night life this is not the place! shuttle bus from hotel returns at 10 pm a little early, taxi from Aonang to hotel costs around 300 baht

    A Pleasant stay

    by

    This hotel has nice architecture and I spose one of the better places to stay in Krabi. Rooms are nice and staff are really friendly. Great place to relax and unwind away from city-ish activities.

    Unique Quality: This hotel has a resident baby elephant - Baby Rara. My kids absolutely adore her. Guests are welcome to join her daily bath session in the sea - she can carry you on her back and you can jump off into the water. Was a lot of fun!

    far from the mad crowd

    by

    The free coffee beverage in the room was very good .It consists of freshly grounded thai coffee powder packed in a paper filterbag.The ground floor room is also large with a small patio overlooking a garden lanscaped like a rainforest, hence every morning you can wake up to songs of birds.We had a king size bedwhich is very comfortable.
    I understand that the hotel rates are above average as this is a 5 star internatinal resort chain.However we paid approx US$450 per pax for Hongkong to Krabi return plus 3 nights stay and free transfer to n fro airport.This is a super deal booked thru a Hongkong travel agent,maybe because end of octocber still within the off peak period.
    .

    Unique Quality: The hotel bildings have clean lines and look like Zen inspired architecture .The buildings are all interconnected with walkway bridges transversing the mangrove swamps thus leaving nature at it's finest.Lots of green spaces beautifully maintained.
    The beach is very private.

    Directions: We will pick up by a hotel arranged saloon from the airport.Jorney duration is around 45 mins.pick up service is free of charge under a package deal

Good experience

by A TripAdvisor Member

After a 2 weeks tour in Thailand we took some days to relax at the Sheraton Krabi. The default hotel our travel agency gave us was different but we decided to pay more and update to the Sheraton. It was well spent money.

We had a wonderful neat room with a great bed (pillows were top notch). The staff was very friendly and always willing to help. The swimming pool, were we spent most of the time, was small but very clean and there was a very nice view from it.

There weren't many guests at the time, so we found it relaxing and quiet, just what we were looking for at the end of our intense trip.

There is this tiny spa inside the hotel. I never used its facilities because they were extremely expensive to me (and even more after getting the same treatments in Bangkok for half the price). Instead, we walked to a near area with a few shops and we got a massage there. They made us have the worst 2 hours of the trip with that massage, but the day after we were like new :)

Disadvantages? I didn't find any that I can remember 6 months later so I guess none of them were really important.

A fantastic resort

by TripAdvisor Member BostonBelkin

We stayed at the Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort for two weeks in November 2005. It was fantastic. A beautiful resort on a secluded beach. Great service, friendly staff, delicious food and a beautiful beach and pool.

GENERAL

The resort is set on a secluded beach about 15 drive north of Ao Nang and about 25 minutes north of Krabi Town. It is quiet in the area around the hotel, which is great for people looking to spend time relaxing and unwinding, yet it is convenient to travel to the surrounding sights. The hotel runs shuttle busses to Ao Nang and Krabi Town.

This is a resort aimed mainly at couples and honeymooners who come to sit by the pool and unwind. Although there were child minding facilities, there were not many families at the resort.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Everyone you walk past will give you smile and greeting. Upon check-in you are given cold face towels and cold lemongrass tea. They also bring you face towels and cold water by the pool.

ROOMS

The rooms are standard layout and style to most Sheraton hotels. Each has all of the amenities you would expect from (mini-bar, hairdryer, AC, couch, robes & slippers etc). Each room also has its own balcony. The hotel is built in a national park area and they have kept the natural habitat intact (therefore the rooms do not have a view of the sea). Each day fresh fruit is put into your room.

We found the room very comfortable to stay in. The mattress was very firm, but it was not uncomfortable to sleep on.

RESTAURANTS AND FOOD

There are three main restaurants in the hotel. Geckos (the hotel’s ‘signature’ restaurant) which has open air formal dining, Mangosteens which serves buffet breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and The Deck (poolside) which serves lighter lunches and dinners (pizzas, pastas sandwiches etc) as well as poolside cocktails.

We found Geckos to be very pricey by Thai standards; however Mangosteens and The Deck were very reasonable. Room service food was also very cheap.

There are also a few Thai restaurants around the hotel. The best was the restaurant right next to the hotel on the beach front. It has very cheap dishes and good cheap beers (US$0.50 cent beers and US$3 curries). Many people from the hotel ate lunch and dinner at this restaurant.

POOLS

The hotel has one large ‘infinity’ pool. It is really beautiful. The water at the beach is warm and is great for swimming. Beach chairs are placed all around the pool and along the beachfront.

You can sign out fresh beach towels each day. Waiters also serve drinks and food to all areas where there are beach chairs. Drinks were pretty reasonable (cocktails were about US$5).

ENTERTAINMENT - TOURISM

Although not in the centre of a major town, we found that the hotel was a great place from which to travel around the Krabi region. You can take a long tail boat from right in front of the hotel to Ao Nang, Railay beach and the surrounding islands (US$40 per day to hire the boat). The hotel also organises other trips. We did the Phi Phi island tour by speed boat (we would highly recommend this trip). The hotel also has other activities (sailing, volleyball etc).

Every day the hotel’s baby elephant (RaRa) takes a swim in the beach in front of the hotel. The handlers give you fruit to feed to him.

This is primarily a relaxation hotel – think sitting by the pool with a cocktail and a good book, doing only the occasional day trip. If you are looking for a hotel in the centre of town, to do lots of activities, or you get bored easily, you should split your time between here and Phuket.

CONCLUSION

We really enjoyed our time at the Sheraton Krabi. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. We will definitely return to this hotel.

Activities at or near the Sheraton Krabi

by inbavaria

Hi, we are booked into the Sheraton Krabi over Christmas (my xmas present :-))
Just wondering if anyone has any ideas or recommendations about activities at that location, also what to avoid. We will be coming from Phuket and I may hire a car, so getting around should not be a problem. Suggestions/recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Jerry

RE: Activities at or near the Sheraton Krabi

Certainly take a boat trip up river to the caves - boats depart from the main little jetty. It's about an hour's trip (I think!) or you can add an extra hour and go through the village built on the banks of the river and out to the rivermouth - lots of birds etc. I think it was 2 hours in total (but may have been 3).

Krabi utself is not that exciting - should head out to Ao Nang and the beaches there. Great place to get boats to the other islands for day trips or just go snorkelling. YOu can also get the boat to Phi Phi from Krabi.

Enjoy.

RE: RE: Activities at or near the Sheraton Krabi

There are lots of activities you can do around Klong Muang. You will need to travel around maybe by taxi or motorbike if you enjoy the sun. You can go elephant trekking or rock climbing in Railay. You can also rent a Kayak, visit the small island around Aonang or even go to Koh Phi Phi or James Bond Island in a boat trip. The hotel or small tour agencies will be able to give you all the information you will need after your arrival. Good holiday in perspective !

Many thanks, leffe and caria, and Orchid, for your advice. Now, I'm just hoping for great weather to see all the placed you recommended.

Say hello to the baby elephant at the Sheraton Krabi for us. It goes for a walk along the beach at 10.00am each morning and then goes for a swim in the ocean at 2pm. You get to swim alongside and have a ball. Right next door the the Sheraton on the beach is a great little restaurant. Great food and very cheap. They also have a little open air massage centre there as well which is much cheaper then the Sheraton. Have fun.
