This beautiful hotel has been the base for our Thailand trip. The private beach is stunning against the backdrop of the cliffs and jungle. If you are are lucky you will have visits on your balcony from the monkeys! Although you shouldn't attempt to feed or touch them! The staff of this hotel are the best I've come across, proffessional but very friendly. From the warm welcome at breakfast to the reception staff who have given us so much help with our trips and transfer taxis. One lady even came down to the pier to get us when there was an issue with a trip we had booked. She called the company and rescheduled it plus rebooked our boat for the next day. We had the sea view room which lets you watch the beautiful sunsets in the evening from your balcony if you want to. Fantastic breakfast choice and great pool. We want to come back again next year as it was all a positive experience! Thank you to everyone at Centara Grand Aonang, Krabi!

We stayed at Centara Grand Krabi in November 2022 for 8 nights. It has single handedly been the most brilliant experience. This was our first time in Thailand and I am so happy we picked this little piece of paradise to stay at. Firstly, the staff at this resort are incredible. They were helpful, kind and forthcoming. Whenever we had a question or were unsure about some trips we had planned, they were straight on the phone to sort things out for us. And to be greeted with big smiles at breakfast every morning and at dinner on the beach in the evening made the stay even more special. Considering the hotel was fully booked, they even remember our room number! The food at the hotel is gorgeous. I think our favourite was the breakfast. So much choice and some things were changed daily so there was plenty of variety. We also had Thai food on a few occasions and again it was perfect. Our room was the duplex garden view with private pool/bath. The room was spacious and clean. We always had plenty of bottled water to drink and the room was cleaned daily. So once again, a big thank you to all the staff at Centara Grand Krabi. You do a wonderful job and we can not wait to come back. We hope you have a good busy season and that your guests are polite and kind. Until next time. K & E Price.

This is my third trip to Centara Grand Beach resort and Villa, Krabi. I am always mesmerized by the location and the scenic view. The hotel itself looks as if it is built into the mountain. There are only two ways to access the hotel - the “monkey trail,” a 15-minute hike up and down the hill from Ao Nang, or a boat ride from the pier, 7 minutes if you use hotel shuttle speed boat. The hotel provides free scheduled shuttle service all day. Every morning you wake up with wild resident monkeys jumping around. They are generally harmless, they come looking for food. So, my advice is not to carry food in your hands when you walk past them. Make sure you take the kayak out to the bay to experience the calm and clear seawater. This place is paradise. Staff are super polite. GM Mr. Mario was always present, from inspecting breakfast to doing inspection rounds of the hotel. On this trip (Nov 2022), we had the opportunity to join a small pool party on the first night and a seafood BBQ buffet on the third night. Huge compliments to Chef Nun, incredible display, and beautifully-prepared and delicious food Thank you so much, Khun Neng for making our trip so memorable. Khun Neng worked tirelessly around the clock to ensure a smooth and relaxing trip for us - no request was ever too big, nothing was ever too hard. And finally, thank you Khun Anucha for assisting with the trip coordination in the early stages.

Even if you stay here for a few nights, it’s 100% worth it for the views! My partner and I stayed for a long weekend on our travels around Thailand and this was our relaxing part of the trip, and it did not disappoint. We stayed in a Deluxe Ocean Facing King room and we had plenty of space, all working facilities and an incredible view. Air con and wifi available no extra charge however before you check in and when you check out you can’t use the wifi as it relates to your room number. Breakfast buffet had a wide variety of western and Thai choices. The restaurants available were good for options but very expensive compared to Thai prices normally. Closer to English value. However the teppanyaki at the Japanese restaurant was very good and worth the money. The rooms can be a bit of a walk up stairs and ramps, so if you are able to chose a lower ground room it is recommended as buggy’s aren’t always available, and in 30 degree heat you will be surprised how hot it is just walking to the room! We saw some monkeys too, they can crop onto the balcony so be careful of leaving your belongings. If you want to explore Krabi this maybe isn’t the hotel for you as it’s remote only accessible by boat. The boat can fit approx 22 people on so you have to book in advance, but the floating pier is not an issue if anything it’s amusing to watch yourself and others have a laugh getting to the hotel. We did visit Ao Nang one evening and there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops if you do want a change of scenery. If you want modern and minimalistic this isn’t the hotel for you as whilst other reviews state it needs a facelift, we chose this place for the rustic theme it gave and fit perfectly with the setting, some DIY wouldn’t go a miss but it’s not in dire straits by any means. If you want a few days relaxing in the sun by the beach and pool this is absolutely perfect.

We had a great stay at this hotel, all of the staff are very friendly and as we were staying for 10 nights we really got to build a good relationship with everyone at the hotel. The setting is truly breathtaking! The monkeys don’t bother you, so that shouldn’t put anyone off booking. We did the beach picnic and it was such a great experience, although I think there was enough food for 4 people not 2 haha! There were a few stand out people for us that really made a difference to our experience, firstly one of the waiters named Dul, he served us on our romantic beach picnic and he was very attentive and such a friendly person. He kept this up throughout our whole stay and we are very happy with the service we received from him. The second one was another waiter Aek, he has so much energy and such a good sense of humour! You can tell he enjoys his job and it shines through in his attitude and friendliness with guests. The last one was the main guy on the water sports counter, unfortunately we didn’t catch his name but he was another super friendly staff memeber that we started to build a great relationship with. Thank you to all of the wonderful staff at Centara! I’ve marked down by 2 as I do agree with the other reviews that the hotel is in need of a serious refresh, it is not dirty and the cleaners do a great job, it is just a bit tired and needs some TLC which makes it appear like it needs a clean. It wouldn’t put me off staying here again though. The monkey trail is very well maintained and felt safe even at 2am as it is very well lit. There is a security guard at the entrance of the monkey trail once you get back to the hotel which makes it feel extra safe. I saw some reviews complaining about the “unsafe” floating jetty, I completely disagree, the boat drivers get you as close as they possibly can and the jetty is really quite wide so does not feel unsafe at all. I can imagine it gets a bit wobbly in windy/rough sea conditions. We went on a lot of boat trips and most of the jetties were like this so I don’t think it’s uncommon, I imagine it’s to preserve the oceans and not disrupt them too much. Overall, we were delighted with our stay here and will be returning in the future!

Amazing hotel with perfect location. We had an ocean view with jacuzzi and we had a perfect view and many visits from multiple monkeys!! The monkey trail to ao nang beach was perfect to access further restaurants and shops. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Secluded getaway with a private beach where one reach via a speed boat only. Wonderful for couples who want to get away from everyday hustle and relax. Perhaps the best property out there in Krabi. Wonderful food with great tropical exotica vibes theoughout the property. serenity all across as though living in secluded tropical island.

Amazing nature, beautiful beach and sea view and excelent service. I strongly recomend it. The rooms are big and immerged in the nature, real jungle full of palms and the place is notorius for having a high population of monkeys. The swimming pool is also great and also the coast bistrot next to it is lovely. Very nice.
