Away from the most visited beaches, the Andaman Holiday Resort, in the region of Krabi, is set as an alternative to the large tourist masses; its main advantage is the lovely beach of Klong Muang.

    Location 4.96 /10

    Bordering the Andaman Sea, on the beach of Klong Muang, in the province of Krabi. Krabi is approximately 15.5 miles to the east and its airport is 22 miles away, that is around fifty minutes. The airport of Phuket, quite farther away, is 99 miles to the east, approximately 2h30 by car.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The Andaman Holiday Resort has a total of 116 rooms: 20 standard rooms, 37 cottages (all rather dull), 24 double rooms (two different rooms per villa, consequently, less space) and 35 simple villas, with private roof-terrace. Only these have a view of the sea. Generally, all the rooms are equipped with very basic furniture, a bit cheerless, due to its age and their arrangement or decor are not attractive, very close to ugliness. However, the basic modern hotel amenities are found there (TV, mini bar, telephone, etc.) and as a good surprise, there is a tea/coffee set for free in all the rooms. The villas, in other words, the high standard of the hotel, benefit from a beautiful surface and the roof-terrace is very enjoyable.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Built in 1991, the Andaman Holiday Resort occupies a pointy area bordering the sea. Several disparate architectural substructures coexist on the site: a two level building that is a simple volume of concrete with no particular charm which contains the basic standard rooms, arrangements of one level separating brick houses, pompously named "cottages", commercialised for a slightly higher price than the basic rooms, and finally, a series of individual "villas" on one or two levels according to the number of rooms they host, some with roof terrace. Although the domain is rather spacious and enjoyable, with tropical scents, the dominant impression is that of a hotel with a careless construction, with no care for creativity or architectural harmony. Except for the lobby, quite spacious (but also very unsightly) at the entrance, the communal spaces, especially the pools, have a feel of narrowness.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Classic service, no more: the Andaman Holiday Resort offers three restaurants to its guests (as well as four bars). They serve Thai food, seafood and classic international cuisine dishes, but only one is open during low season (summer months), ensuring the three types of service indifferently. There are no good nor bad surprises in the menu. Three thematic culinary evenings are organised every week during high season.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Undoubtedly, the best advantage of the hotel: the public beach of Klong Muang is large, seducing, with enough shading and sufficiently isolated from large tourist concentrations to guarantee real tranquillity to its users. The Andaman Sea has a good level of cleanliness and the slope is satisfying.

    To know

    The Thai owner of the hotel is Christian (Catholic), the Andaman Holiday Resort has (just next to the fitness room) a small chapel where Masses are held. This is rare! Another hotel, immediately adjacent to the establishment was under construction in summer 2001.

      The Sharaton Krabi occupies a 40-acre estate, so you will be happy to know that you can ask for a golf car to get around it! The hotel opened in 2003 and was built in the same vein as the other hotels belonging to the group, with comfort and high quality facilities and services being essential. It is just a shame that there is not an Asian touch in sight.

      As its name suggests, the Tubkaak is a charming little hotel located in Krabi. It opened in 2003 and the few facilities dotted around its 6-acre property have been designed to provide guests with the highest levels of comfort. It is worth bearing in mind that the hotel is not recommended for children though, and its clientele actually consists entirely of couples.

      The Centara Grand Beach Resort, opened in 2006, has taken over from its predecessor, the Central Krabi Bay Resort. Set in the heart of nature and surrounded by high karst relief, the only way to get here is by boat. Its strong point is its beautiful undisturbed beach, where you can relax in an isolated, idyllic setting.

      The Sofitel Phokeethra opened in 2007 and it faces Klong Muang beach, in Krabi. It is a shame that it is not directly on the seafront, but sports enthusiasts will certainly enjoy the nine-hole golf course next to the establishment. This Sofitel, like the other hotels of the group, offers a good level of facilities, but the impressive building it is housed in does not blend in seamlessly into the beautiful countryside of this part of Thaïland.

      With just 57 rooms, the Amari Vogue Resort is a small, modestly-sized establishment, its various buildings stretch (lengthwise) down towards the sea. This, of course, means that there are lots of steps around the resort. Given that the hotel offers no facilities for children, apart from a small swimming pool, this establishment is better suited to couples. The hotel's clientele consists primarily of French, English and American guests.
